Swept Away


Wow, the tracing was actually pretty tough!  I usually just write and re-write and re-write rather than trace.  So, I ended up tracing about 7 times and changing out nibs.  I usually write too heavily to use the Brause EF 66 nib, but for tracing, that's what worked best for me.  Here's the scan and the first photoshop edit.
