    yeah i mean i got a calligraphy set today and the person who wrote the book that comes with it says her hand writing looks like a dogs dinner even though shes a professional calligrapher which is good because I too could be a doctor in a next life because my hand writing is squiggly and all joined

    use a brush pen it works better and easier for me. I just draw the word sometimes and color it in so I do fake calligraphy. BUT A BRUSH PEN WORKS THE BEST!

    I really want to get into Calligraphy but currently have two weeks of exams so i guess i’ll have to wait. I think Calligraphy is a great art where not only does it improve handwriting but also teaches patience.

    Calligraphy pens (the cheap ones) work TERRIBLE on parchment paper. Although costly, use a moderately expensive pen on CARDSTOCK with ink SPECIFICALLY for these pens. Your pen will thank you for the special care you give it. Chemical compositions of inks (like Copics) vary greatly from writing ink, thus, the nibs suffer from improper ink and usage on incorrect paper. Instead of usig a dip pen (which can cause a MESS), try using a pen with a ink converter (makes extracting ink from the bottles so much easier) or an ink tube (the ink is already inside the little tube, all you need to do is pierce the ink cap as you put it into the pen!)

    I prefer digital art since I am 1000x better at it. 😅 I suck at physical art. But even if I am bad at it, it's artists like you that keep me going on. 😏 I love using copics, paints and colored pencils (polychromos). I love all art. 😂
