Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw Gothic calligraphy. So when you draw calligraphy you typically use a slanted tip pen so you can get different thicknesses of line but I'm going to still show you how the strokes go even though I don't have that, it's an ornate style of writing letters. So the A has like a curving thing like that and then it comes down and there's a jag there. There's different styles of doing this. It's all different kinds of ways and then there it's like a double, kind of a double thing there and then the you know the center thing is like that and for the B, use a different color, it also has a jag on the top and then it comes down and there's the B and there's that and it comes down like that. You can put a little line there and the C you could start it like that and then bring it around and then have a line there. You could put some flourishes on it, you don't have to and the D. You could even go like that, bring it down, bring it up. You could have another line and you could put a flourish on it and that is how I draw Gothic calligraphy.
