Tassin's Sea Dragon by Merwenna Tassin's Sea Dragon by Merwenna
I just did the calligraphy for this one! Illumination by Letia Thistelthueyt and wordsmithing by Wistric Oftun.

This is a backlog Sea Dragon award done for one of the rapier fighters here in Windmasters Hill as a gift for his yellow-scarfing prize fight at Ruby Joust 2013. My apprenti-sister Letia had promised to do one for both him and Aedh/Rory, and since she was overwhelmed with projects at the moment we tag-teamed them with what is quickly becoming our favoritest source, the Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta. (Flemish and Hungarian, Austria, 1561- 1562 and about 1591 - 1596) It was also done in separate parts, by a calligrapher and then an illuminator, which is the order we did it in.

I used sumi ink and Letia used gouache. :)

Aww, thank you very much!  The illumination on this one, however (including said adorable snail), was done by my partner-in-crime, Letia!
