    Calligraphy and handwriting and drawing are not the same, or even similar as you just learned! I can't draw to save my life, my calligraphy is okay, and my regular handwriting is anal-retentively awesome. You can draw like a MF, your handwriting is better than a serial killer's and your calligraphy, with practice will be as good as your drawing. Drills, patience, practice, more drills, and... I find brush tip pens easier to work with. Dip pens are the hardest instruments I've tried! Even fountain calligraphy pens are easier. Good luck. Practice makes progress!

    If you learn how to do calligraphy and you can draw, this channel will fly through the ranks. You're the best drawer, *Calligraphy-er?* and animator, I'm saying that because you can do calligraphy, animate and draw! I haven't seen anybody who can do that, I'd like to see you try to write old letters. It seems as thought you have written old writing, I mean Harry Potter Writing. Okay, you might not be a Harry Potter, Naruto, MHA, Death Note (and more) fan like me. You might need to find this part in the movie, It's either, The Prisoner Of Akazaban (If that's how it's spelled) or The Half-Blood Prince. If that takes to long try to google it. I'd enjoy if you do calligraphy more, oh and especially use the ol' Feather pen like you use in the love letter/ outro. I don't know if it's a outro, but I mean. "Gotta do what you gotta do." Am I right?
    (P.S) You don't understand how many red underlined-lines *(If that's a word)* were in this, I made so many grammar mistakes it's unbelievable. I enjoy watching your videos and I also find calligraphy soothing or in the "2018" satisfying. *If that's even the "2018" way.*

  • Amanda Lockridge

    The first thing you learn in calligraphy: You never PUSH the pen! All your strokes should be pulling the nib along, never pushing. That demonstration video he was watching may have made some nice art there, but their technique was all kinds of wrong XD.

    I think the trick with cursive calligraphy is to learn to draw the letters before ever bothering with fancy pens and whatnot. Many say it’s best to learn it with a fountain pen but I only had a pencil when I started and didn’t have problems transitioning into fountain and brush pens later on since the stroke technique is applicable for both. I recommend the spencerian books you can buy on amazon (or find a pdf online if you wanna take the illegal route) which have many great exercises and worksheets to get started

    You probably won't see this and probably already know, but when drawing anything with a calligraphy pen, move your whole arm instead of just your hand. It helps your lines look smoother and more natural. Also, you can buy calligraphy pens that do not require inkpots and instead of metal attachments they have one flexible felt-like feeling, but I don't think they come in color.

    Jazza, dear heart. I was a teacher for almost 30 years and have seen more handwriting than you can imagine and trust me on this darlin, your handwriting does NOT suck. It may not be as a perfect copperplate but it is legible. I've seen handwriting that you literally could not read. Handwriting is a line like any other and when you can draw as well as you do, well... just think of the letters like you would any other drawing.
    As for Calligraphy, we practice... a lot! Also a dip pen is for a master of the art. For a beginner I suggest a calligraphy marker or a pen with ink cartridges. They are much easier to control and you won't have all the drips and spatters while you are learning. Save the dip pen for later. :)
    Each font you try you will have to start at the beginning to learn how the letters are formed so don't be discouraged at all the repetition. As you found all that is teaching you control and muscle memory. You will get there!
    And then once you get your hand down comes the fun part of illumination! :D
