Calligraphy - One Ring - Sandstone Can't Post

I did this a few years ago. Its a font I made, black ink on white paper, photographed then Corel'd.
I was trying to get the effect that I was photographing a sandstone wall where the 'words of the 'One Ring' had been chiselled into. This is one of a series of photos I took - I'll add the rest soon to this post Smile

re: [In reply to] Can't Post

This is very cool. It does look like it's graven in stone.

Thanks WonderBroad. [In reply to] Can't Post

   
I would have liked to see the writing toned down and not so dark - but I was also geting used to using the art program. It reminded me of being in a tunnel with torches - a plaque on the wall sort of senario ...

Thanks for looking in Sly Much appreciated.

I like this a lot [In reply to] Can't Post

and I love your ponies. They have an almost Thelwellian feel, but their expressions are totally themselves!

Oh totally!! I love Norman Thelwell! (as you can see Wink) ... I find his illustrations so inspiring!! Fatty Lumpkin and Swish-tail are modeled from one of his drawings ... I use a similar drawing style with Wise-Nose, and some of the other horses Ive drawn too Sly

Thanks for taking a peek Smile
