86: Split Swash Capitals

Similar to yesterday's alphabet, these Split Swash Capitals are formed with a split nib.  Sometimes called a "scroll pen," it outlines each stroke, and necessitates very precise joining of separate strokes and swashes.  

You can also make a split calligraphy marker by taking a notch out of the nib with a very sharp knife.  It's much easier to write with, and will let you try these out without difficulty.  

You can fill the outlined strokes with color.
