    Anyway, I'm getting into calligraphy. Right now, just standard American calligraphy. I was wondering if any of you do calligraphy. If so, how did you pick it up, and tips do you have?

    Since that'll probably get zero to -3 responses, I thought it'd be fun to do a calligraphy challenge. The challenge will be to pen, scan, and upload the following words:

    "Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Central"

    If anyone actually tries to do this, we can have a poll at the end to select the winner. If you just want to sketch or draw or doodle, that's fine too (as long as it says the words above.

    Ready?

    ...

    GO!

    K, here's mine (on paper this time!). I didn't forget about the "central," it's just in white.

    Okay. I finally got a copperplate pen. Here's me playing around. I know there are mistakes, FYI. For example, "Booyalab" was intentionally spelled with a capital "B" just to piss her off.

    Please compare it to my original submission:

    Wow, these are gorgeous. I definitely don't have the patience for this... I'd go all crazy-like on the letters.

    Wow, that's really nice, Edahn and phoenix13. I'm trying to learn, but haven't been practicing a whole lot. It's frustrating, because I would really like lessons, but there aren't any available around here. I'm mostly trying to learn Beneventan right now; I'll try to take a picture of something later today.

    Also, what kinds of pens and inks do you guys use? I'm partial to Brause nibs myself. I'm using Higgins non-waterproof black for ink, but I like sumi ink as well.

    I don't actually know you, Edahn, but I'd guess you were most likely an Ne type, probably ENTP. If so, would you regard your interest in Calligraphy in MBTI terms as having anything to do with getting in touch with your inferior Si? It seems to me like a very Si kind of activity.

    Are you calling me inferior?

    ^ Nah, he's just collecting accomplishments to decorate himself with. It's because he wants everyone to like him.

    It hasn't worked out so well.
