Here is a quick piece of ornamental script, written with a Hiro no.40 nib. Being used to draw my flourishes with pencils or fine liners, the flexible pointed nib is really not an easy tool to use. The gain in speed and fluidity is amazing though.

very beautiful indeed
How did you learn this? Beautiful!
Oh man! Beautiful
Stunning! @Joachim Vu
This needs more views! So beautiful! This takes a lot of practice.
looks very good
This is gorgeous. Amazing work
This must be so hard to do, but I have to say you've pulled it off beautifully (also, I love your definition of "a quick piece"..!) The flourishes coming off the the end of the 'g' are so fantastic, really detailed and intricate but flow perfectly and don't look cluttered at all. Amazing one at the very end too!
@Samuel-Dean @James Blevins @Pavel Maček @Tobia Crivellari ™ @Justin Crutchley @RaitG @Melissa Ginsiorsky @Karli Ingersoll Thank you everyone!
@Ton Somers Only practice and study of works from masters :)
@Claire Coullon Thanks Claire! This one took less than 15 minutes to do, so it really is a quick piece :) everything is drawn free hand except for the quote where I use guidelines. Of course the flourishes requires some preliminary practice to get the movement right! This piece is quite old already, and I find it really clumsy by now. I have some more recent stuff I may post soon, and you can really tell how regular practice is important for this kind of stuff!
Yeah it's amazing the improvement you notice even over a relatively short period. Really looking forward to seeing some newer stuff, too. Have a great holiday though!
