A Bit Of Uncial!
Inkysloth posted a topic in Calligraphy DiscussionsHi all! I've not been on here much for the last... quite a while. I've been busy with calligraphy, and thought I should share a bit of an update here: Tiny Micrography, Darwin quote by Robin Inkysloth, on Flickr Medium Huginn & Muninn uncial by Robin Inkysloth, on Flickr Large!

Course Progress - All Feedback Welcomed!
Inkysloth posted a topic in Calligraphy DiscussionsHi all, I started doing Beginners' Calligraphy at Morley College (in London) in Autumn 2014, and wanted to share some of the results here for feedback / encouragement / advice / anything really! I'm into the 2nd term, each term has one 2 1/2 hour session a week, for 10 weeks. We look at 3-ish hands per term, as well as touching on things like blind embossing, gilding, colour theory etc. So it's a bit of a whistle stop tour of calligraphy, but it's giving me the desire to go deeper, and helped me improve a surprising amount. I was getting really frustrated practising alone, from books, as I was having the same problems over & over, but some guidance from a tutor in person has helped me address my difficulties. I need a lot more practice, but the photos below show pretty much where I'm at with Foundation Hand, Blackletter, Uncials, and Versals.
Grayhart posted a topic in Calligraphy DiscussionsHello! I am still practicing my hand at an Uncial letter form. This thread will be my attempts at this. I strive to have this as my everyday writing. Hopefully this thread will be updated regularly... I felt like sharing a nonsense pseudo review. Your thoughts, opinions, and even your own Uncial hand are greatly appreciated! ^o^ Sorry my hand isn't steady yet... Written with a Sheaffer...No Nonsense... pen with Medium nib. Old brown ink cartridge dating before my birth. Staples Legal Pad. (I grab what I can...) Note that I posted this picture about a week after I wrote. I now have the mentioned nib I was missing! Forgive my horrible scanner quality...
