Harry Potter Calligraphy

Finals are over, so I'm back to blogging! One thing I wanted to share with you was a calligraphy manuscript that I did in art class in December. I decided to write the Harry Potter school song from the first book.

By the way, it's much harder than it looks - everything has to be perfect and if you even make one teeny tiny mistake (spelling mistake, writing a letter in the wrong font, having one letter look weird, smudging), you have to start over because you're using India Ink (which is permanent) and "calligraphy" means 'beautiful writing,' so it HAS to be exactly perfect.

Anyways... here it is!

wow that's amazing, i couldn't believe you did it yourself, it's wonderful and it must be extremely difficult to have to start over and over again (if you did)

I like the touch of the Hogwarts shield under the initial letter.

That has to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen! It must have taken forever to finally get it right! The attention to detail is insane!!!
