Be the reason someone smiles today--2 week Calligraphy Challenge

It is my first time with calligraphy so I am excited to start this sesion!

My quote will be: Be the reason someone smiles today.

I´ve chosen it because it is short, and it´s something I feel good about repeating myself, so I would not mind practicing it all over!  I love the idea that it only takes small steps to make the world a better place to live in!

Hope something good comes of it!

Thanks for all your classes!

UPDATE:

Here are my initial sketches. I guess I will be trying with the first one.I´ve tried them to look more ¨callygraphic¨ but my type still remains kind of rounded, I need to work on it.

UPDATE II

After trying dozens of versions of my quote, I finally arrive to one I feel comfortable with.

I know is not perfect, I definitely need more practice, not only with style, but also with the knib because I still find it hard to get the right amount of ink and my hand still kind of shakes when going up. I am sure that these are problems I am gonna solve with practice, so I will be taking next lesons for sure! :)

Thanks Bryn for your detailed explanations and classmates for your advice!!!!

Hope you like my final version.

Mana.-
