Illumination, the third
As a third illumination and calligraphy work I figured I might as well actually do some calligraphy. Since I was talking to a person online who wanted a scroll made, just for fun (yes, I'm that nice) I said OK. The person wasn't sure what they wanted on the scroll however, but when pressed said that a poem by Tolkien would be very nice. So I set about learning Roman Uncials to write with. My first draft was a total botch-so I threw it out and started again
. Step two was starting on the illumination
to fill up the rest of the space.
the illumination, and the scroll was fininshed.
