"Calligraphy" art

So, the other day at D&D, my friend Kevin was getting frustrated at an assignment where he had to do art with 'calligraphy' lines. 
I thought it sounded like fun, so I gave it a go.  The results weren't the nicest things I've ever done, that's for sure, but I think it was a good exercise.  It was smooth, and fast, and not something about which I needed to care about.

I tossed a bunch, but here are the ones I saved.  

When I started, I wanted to do big, thick lines, and was using a big, thick brush, and painting on black construction paper (with details being done with a smaller brush).  None of these turned out well, but I find that I sort of like this image of Sprot, for some reason. 
Then I moved on to just using the thin brush.  Sprot again.  

A dragon.  (Painting on cardstock now, hence the various background colours)


Quare.  Not sure faces really work with this, but hey.

Quare again.  I think I hate this one, actually.  Not sure why I'm posting it.

Quare again.

Um... Quare's finger.

Anyway, these are fun.  I'll probably do more, later.


  1. Dude, that second image of Sprot is lovely! Very fluid and simple but informative. I give you THUMBS UP! *thumbs up*

    (it's Zak btw)

  2. Thank you! :3 I'll be honest, that one is my favourite, too.
