Galadriel's Song pt. 1 sketch by LemonicDemon Galadriel's Song pt. 1 sketch by LemonicDemon
I wrote the song Galadriel sang in FotR with FŽanorian alphabets. I also tried to maintain the Quenya- style, since the song itself is sang in Quenyan. The only source that I used was The Return of the King's appendiges, so this is genuine stuff. Of course some mistakes were made, one can see the corrections made with a white pen... and I guess that most long E:s needn't have been long. Ah well. It's not bad though. :)
The whole song couldn't fit on one page, I may post the rest later.

Oh and if anyone's wondering, those "~" marks between words are just to separate them better. I'm still no good at this, so it'd be hard to read otherwise.

Your handwriting is very lovely!  I really like the way that you write out the letters - it's curly and sweet.  I'm not sure what the giant curls are supposed to be, though - I've never seen anyone use them before.  I'd recommend looking at some of Tolkien's writings to get a firm handle on the relative shapes and sizes of Tengwar letters to help with keeping things spaced and in line correctly, because they kind of waver all over.  But it seriously looks lovely!  I'm not a pro in Quenya mode, but it looks like you've got a good handle on it.  Nice work :D

Aw, thank you ^.^
Of course, that was just practice, and my writing always wavers. It's somehow difficult to stay straight, plus I'm lef-handed... I need some kind of help lines if I'm to write straight. X) I also changed my style somewhere, you can see the "backbones" of letters changing - most visibly in N:s and M:s.

The "giant curls" are my interpretation of long O:s and U:s. The tehta are just my vision :) I thought that your way of writing O and U is quite elegant, I just decided - for whatever reason - to connect them fully into tehtar and the consonants.

But yeah, thank you!
