My Chinese Caligraphy

This painting was a "rough draft" for the final painting that I gave my boyfriend for Valentine's Day.

It says "I Love You" in Chinese.

very cool. You've got a lucky boyfriend, he has beautiful Chinese caligraphy now along with a beautiful girlfriend. I'd love to see the finished product.

That's beautiful. I kind of wish my parents had made me take Chinese classes as a kid so I could have learned to write, but then I kind of don't since no one who took them enjoyed them.

Very nice. You know how to apply it to swordfighting? ::coughs:: Yes, yes, I know I watch WAY too many kung fu movies. If you don't understand, watch Hero and/or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. It's a good deal, you get to watch a freaking awesome movie and understand an obscure joke by me in the process.

Hey I own Crouching Tiger! And I will make sure to watch Hero and Kagemusha too. I love Kung Fu movies. Thanks for all your compliments, everybody. You guys rock.

Hero is awesome. I don't understand why it didn't get too much attention in the media.

I saw Kagemusha, and it seemed to me to not have any real fighting at all... It was a great movie though. You are talking about the Kurosawa one, right?

great work, Plummie.
Sumi ink, stone, brush, and paper?

I love the energy and the vastness...

I just got a new camera, so as soon as I get some webspace, I'll put the finished product up for you all to see. Plummie handpainted a red border around the symbols and put it in a black frame. Its the best Valentine's Day present I've ever gotten. Its a really heartfelt artistic expression, but it looks bad-ass!! Thanks, cutie

Question:
Is there a reliable place (website) where you can obtain Japanese and Mandarin translation? I have always wanted to know the characters for happiness and Success, but I don't want to have "at the end of the day this guy is ugly" on my desktop or tattoo or whatever (if you are at a loss there was a guy that went to get a tattoo on his arm and the artist put what I put in "" on his arm then left town. The guy had no idea until a waitress at a asian resturant started laughing at him.)

I don't know of any translation websites, but here are the characters you are looking for.

Double Happiness



Wealth or Success

i like to freak my chinese friends out by recognizing certain symbols.
When they ask how i know what that says i always reply
"because the Japanese stole them!"
It's funny because it's true

Those are some pretty Pimpin writings...u indeed are a rarity to find. Ur b/f is lucky to have someone that is willing to make a gift rather than buy it. Good luck for future writings.

always thought the oriental calligraphy was the best. I don't know why, maybe because of the difference in language structure, or the fact that they are symbols with meanings I love to think about. If I knew what the said it might loose some mystery... I dunno.
