im not a font/typeset expert...meaning i dont know anything about either :P. im trying to find a nice cursive upper case Q, hopefully there is an expert or someone with good taste who knows of a font that has a nice elegant cursive Q. thanks for any help!

Does it need a long tail on it? A swash? What's it for, just out of curiosity? I might do some looking later on.

i want to use it for a tattoo design that im working on (not actually tattooing it on myself). i want to find a nice font as a base and then i plan on modifying it a bit. a solid base is the first step though.
i like the cursive used with the L and J on Lebron James' tricep tattoos. i dont know how to explain why i think it came out so beautifully...maybe the bold/thin relationships...i cant explain it but a Q similar to that is what im looking for

These are two scripts I like... you should check out veer.com they have a lot of nice script typefaces too, Alejandro Paul is really great.

Bickham Script Pro, Comics Sans, Bodoni, Zapfino, Snell Roundhand?

They are all good IMHO :cool:

I also have a thing for Arno pro. Light Display is my variant of choice... depending on application of course.

But in this case, I agree with Edwardian Script. Although it does look a little like a 2.

Arno is a beautiful font, elegant and classy. I also like Garamond a lot.

Cheers
