The person who did this was definetly a master. The sad thing is it probably took him 5 seconds (after a lifetime of practice) to do what it took me 46min to do. This is my family name, Cheng in English.

I watched a documentary about Chinese calligraphy. It was fascinating. As you said, the masters were at it for their whole lives and made symbols like this in four or five fluid movments of their brush.
