Random Hello

October 6, 2016

I would always tell myself that choose progress not perfection. I always try to practice whenever I can and keep track of my progress.

Random Hello

Today, we would almost use the word hello in almost any conversation. I would think of it more than a way of greeting. You could make someone feel better by just saying hello.

For this video, I thought of using it instead of minimum since it could be hard for some to greet someone. Even if they are friends with the person. I wrote hellos and hola in this post. I just hope it could enlighten someone’s day.

Some of the pens used:

  • Platinum Brush & Brush Pen
  • ZIG Cocoiro, Fudebiyori, Brushables, Real Brush
  • Artline Stix Brush Marker
  • Tombow Brush PenΒ acid free
  • Marvy Uchida Le Plume
  • Pilot Petit 3Β fude
  • Sakura Pigma Brush
  • Faber Castell Pitt PenΒ brush

The materials used in the video are not sponsored. Those were all bought using my own money/savings.

Enjoy! 😃

P.S. I made you listen to classical music! 😜

    I love that you now have videos! It just makes the calligraphy work more visible. You can also do tutorials, I’m sure lots of people would want to learn. Keep it up!

    Nakakatuwa naman ang video mo. LOL. Sana ang ending meron ding showing you with a pretty smile. Watching your video, ang layo na ng narating mo sa calligraphy no, plus I remember reading one of your posts previously, kaliwete ka nga pala.

    Like ko ang video mo, It seems that it is so easy to write those Hello on different pens. But, I know it aint. Ang hirap kaya nyan, I love to do some like that, and in digital font “Satisfy” is my favorite, thus, it’s one that I commonly use sa blog ko. Are those you mentioned of pens are in order from your video? Because I love the blue one πŸ™‚

    • Reply Maria October 10, 2016 at 2:33 am

      Thank you po! I haven’t seen Satisfy font yet but will sure do. For the pens, yes, there are in order. The blue one that looks like a lego? That’s Artline brush marker. The other blue one that I used to write “hola” is ZIG Real Brush. πŸ™‚

    Wow, watching your video made me “nganga”. You’re really very talented. I was speechless, I really don’t know what to say now. Simply WOW. Your works are actually amazing, please teach me how you do that. You possess such an amazing sense of a deeper artistic hand that is planted within you.

    Aw I love your video. Naalala ko tuloy dati nung parang nagiging adik ako sa calligraphy. Malaki nga ang nagastos ko dahil sa calligraphy ngunit panget padin ang mga gawa ko. I really need more practice and hard work. I envy you! You’re so talented! Keep it up

    Hey Maria, ang gifted mo! You’re handstrokes are amazing! Given na leftie ka pa nyan. Alam naman natin ang struggle ng lefties kapag nagsusulat pero yung calligraphy skills mo sobrang advanced and ang swabe lang. Keep it up! And btw, hello! I am a Maria, too. Hihi

    Gosh, this makes me want to buy a brush pen! I was able to attend an intro class to brush calligraphy, but I really want to join a more intensive one. If only I could find one near our place. Looking forward to more of your calligraphy posts πŸ™‚

    Lovely initiative with the videos! I always loved your calligraphy work blogs… but your video now makes it so much more interesting…very creative!

  • Reply Carola October 10, 2016 at 1:52 am

    Loved the video! Liked the look of the second ‘Hello’ the best, though they all look awesome. You’re really good at this. And I really enjoy watching the videos. ‘A girl is no one’ is that from Game of Thrones?

    • Reply Maria October 10, 2016 at 2:30 am

      Yes! “A girl is no one” is a reference from Game of Thrones. Do you watch it too? πŸ˜€

    Hello, Maria ❀️

    I like the way you see life or a hobby or anything you value. Not perfection but progression. Again, something new I learned from much younger individuals like you.

    I will try to always keep that in mind.

    Hello again, Maria ❀️

    Hello to you too! πŸ™‚ Super nice! I only have zig brush pens and I still have a long way to go before my calligraphy gets to be as nice as yours. More practice needed!

  • Reply theresa October 10, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    I so envy your skills. I tried practicing but I really can’t get the upward and downward strokes. Will you give me some tips? It’s getting hard for me each day

    Awesome! I did calligraphy before and I’m really bad at it. :/ The outcome is always the opposite of what I want it to be >.< You got amazing skills there! Love it <3

  • Reply Marge October 10, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    You know your calligraphy girl, good job! I also want to learn this but I still haven’t found the time. I think I need it because my penmanship is terrible, maybe it would help me improve my handwriting if I try this haha..

    Ooh… you are such a good calligrapher! You have a gift. Nice video… I wish I could do what you’re doing. I tried doing it for our wedding invitations but it’s not as good as yours! πŸ™‚

    You make Calligraphy look so easy! Is it really? I see a lot of people taking Calligraphy classes but never have I participated in one. I have a rather bad handwriting, do you think it’s possible that I can write as beautiful as that? Haha Thanks!!

      At first, it was hard but if you really continue practicing, it will be better. Of course it’s possible! πŸ™‚

    You have a really nice technique! Do you ever try and do different kinds of letter as well? I haven’t seen any of your other videos so I might be totally off the mark. I really like that blue marker pen! I really appreciate your love of Game of Thrones. πŸ™‚

  • Reply Chardybaldyosa October 15, 2016 at 1:59 pm

    Hellos are always so refreshing and nice. It’s an act if recognizing someone and or a way of making a new friend. I like your starting quote. Choosing progress is really admirable. Something that a lot in this country should learn. Still really hoping for your lessons! ❀️

  • Reply Dawm October 31, 2016 at 4:20 am

    I agree with the first phrase, we should always aim for progress and not perfection. Aiming for perfection gives pressure and it takes the fun out of everything. Haha. Cool video. πŸ™‚ I envy you for this talent of yours. I couldn’t even write a simple hello in a nice way. Haha.
