Heart sutra!

It's been two years since I've left Japan, but maybe my calligraphy hasn't gotten too rusty hehehe φ(._.)メモメモ

Ah but I have no idea what the sutra says, this is only for calligraphy practice σ(^_^;)

eehhh??? you wrote that? I'm no expert but that's pretty impressive to me!

This year in particular, I've been watching a lot of subtitled anime and games, so more than ever I'm picking up the language just by listening. (plus even learning more about Japanese culture all this time has made understanding the language easier too.) Starting this month, it has encouraged me to finally take a crack at learning the written language (it just seemed so daunting before). I did a poor translation of something akin to a children's song~ xD baby steps... hehe.

Maybe someday I'll be able to do what you have up there... ('o')

Hehehe yeah I wrote that ^__^ Thank you for the compliment!!! I have learned Japanese before, but kanji is very difficult, especially the stroke orders of these Chinese characters. That's actually less than half of the whole sutra. Normally people copy sutras in one sitting every morning, Japanese people I mean, the devout Buddhists hehehe, it's supposed to calm you and refocus your mind for the day. I wrote only 4 and half lines last night, and the other three lines this morning. I still have a lot more to go hehehe...

That's great you're learning Japanese! Good luck, baby steps are always needed, and they are the foundation for your big leaps ^___^ Have fun translating your stuff, in a couple weeks, you'll know a lot more than I do!!!

i don't know one thing about calligraphy but that looks pretty good (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Thank you =) You can always start, buy a brush and look for any Chinese books you can find at the library, you can practice write the simple characters ^___^

xD that is true. it's more than a language, its an art form~! my mom used to do calligraphy in english. had some neat pens and stuff.

good points but isn't the stroke order an important thing too for this? i don't want to butcher the art xD

Yeah, stroke order would be something you'd need to look up. Although with some you could almost guess the direction of the brush. Dx there's just so many characters though

That's right, the stroke order is very important. And in calligraphy, the pressure on each stroke is also important for technique. Whenever my strokes start looking poorly, I stop cuz I know that's when I'm tired LOL

P-pressure? o.o;
Yeeaahhh gonna leave the writing to the pros lol

Holy moly! (totally appropriate expression for this)
I'm sooo jealous of your calligraphy skills! The proportions are really good!

Thank you!!! Ah, with the proportions, there's a template that you follow, otherwise even Japanese people can't write it like that LOL!!! Japanese people buy this, and every morning they copy the whole sutra to start the day =) It builds karma and helps them relax and focus~ I only do this for calligraphy practice!

It really looks so prettttttyy ヽ꒰ ◍′Д‵꒱ノ Calligraphy is such an amazing talent and a beautiful art form, no matter the language! I'm super jealous at just how beautiful your calligraphy is! (*⁰▿⁰*)

Ah thank you thank you!!! It's takes a lot of practice hehehe Whenever my strokes start getting ugly is when I stop, it takes me a long time to finish hehehe, this is not even half of it σ(^_^;)

I don't see any part of what you'd written that is "ugly" because it all looks nice in my eyes! :)

Hehehehe thank you ^___^

I got your K Fujimi and Yata clear file in, and also a cute Attack on Titan one, if you're interested!!! Just letting you know~ Check out Karneval and Free! as well, and other anime clear files ^___^ Oh yeah, do you want an Attack on Titan schedule book and seals? You're the only one I know who likes that series LOL, so just thought I'd offer. I'm not getting it for myself and not getting it to post, so not posting a preorder entry about it =P If you want one, I'll grab it in my next order with Movic. If not, no biggie =)

Thank you for telling me! And I will definitely be checking out those updated pages soon too! hehe Am I really the only one you know how likes SnK? LOL Thanks for the offer, but I'll decline~ I will be getting the Free! one and I don't think I need more than one schedule book anyway! Besides, the Free! one is much more colorful anyway and I like colors! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ~*:・゚✧*:・゚✧
