Quill and Ink

My tribute to the classical style. This image brings us back to the beginning... to a time before most modern conveniences existed.

Materials: Quill and Ink (surprising?) The ink is India Ink, and a basic art quill.

So I really love this image? And I was wonderign if you would mind if someone, say me, would get a tattoo of it? :D If not then of course I understand, but I just had to ask!

Awesome! Thank you so much! I'm still looking into finding the perfect artist (I'm aware that copying every single exact line might not be realistic but I want it done well you know? It is after all, permanent) But once I've gotten it inked I'll definitely send you a picture!:D

Great concept here, painting art tools with the very same art tools. :nod: Striking detail too. :thumbsup:

Can my band use this logo for some T-shirts?  We are just starting out.
Thanks,

Can I use this for a cover on fanfiction.net? It's literally a story with a whole bunch of one -shots, with different prompts. Trying to get to 10,000 words with different prompts and such. Its Harry Potter. I'll credit you.

thank you! It honestly wasn't a big deal, but I really liked your picture of a quill :)
Here's the link to the fanfic, if you're interested: www.fanfiction.net/s/9887874/1…
it really fit because each chapter was about something different, and it's basically a writing exercise. I credit you in the summary, and I'm pretty sure in the author's note of the first chapter, and I posted the link to this page on my profile, towards the bottom where I talk about my stories, as I can't put links in chapters.
thanks again!

Nicely drawn. I cn't use a quill anymore then I can fly. It's nice to see that yet another person can use such an elegant tool.
