Anyone Can Blog ~ Commenting Is Hard
This photo makes the gold look more like yellow, but it’s actually gold.
Very nice, thanks for sharing!
I love this one.
I can’t even imagine the discipline it takes to produce these works. They are truly wonderful.
That is absolutely beautiful, Sobek. How do you do the script so well? Is it just as if each letter is a work of art that you are re-creating?

man my German is so rusty
Lips, I pencil in the horizontal lines, including the line spacing. Then I type whatever I want to print on a computer and size it properly, and divide each line into quarters (just eyeballing it). I draw quarter lines over the horizontal lines and compare that to the printout, so I get the word spacing right. Then I just write the letters in, first in pencil, then in ink.
The piece I did in cuneiform was a bit different, because my computer won’t let me type in that for some reason. So I just made a grid and gave one letter to each box. You can’t do that with Roman, Arabic or Hebrew scripts because of kerning (a word I know because Dan Rather is a dishonest hack), but it works just fine with cuneiform.
Very nice, Sobek. “man my German is so rusty”
I know a little German.
Thanks for ‘splaining how you do the lettering, Sobek. You have a gift.
