Step-by-step tutorial

Gently sketch your phrase and all ornamental elements with a pencil. In this step you can easily make corrections in the overall composition and in the letter design.

Now write with the thicker calligraphy tip and use matching colours. Make sure that the pencil is well held and guided so that the typical calligraphy effect of thick and thin lines can also be seen using the thick tip.

With the thin tip of the corresponding colour you can now design the letters further. With double lines or additional swing and decorative lines.

Now draw all ornamenting elements like mountains, the sun and arrows.

Finally, carefully erase all visible pencil lines.
