I’m really in love with this font I created guys, I finally have a name for it and I feel like I’ve really perfected it. I realized as I was writing the other day that it is very close to my natural handwriting.
Anyway – I present to you, week FIVE of the practice quotes. Enjoy!
If you’re looking for more practice quotes, check out these other weeks:
Do you want to learn hand lettering?
If you’re checking out these practice pages because you’re interested in hand lettering and want to get some practice in, DON’T GO AT IT ALONE.
I’ve got a whole self-paced e-course all about hand lettering.
My e-course will teach you the basics such as the parts of a letter, the differences between calligraphy, hand lettering, and typography, and how to find inspiration from other artists and typefaces.
I’ll teach you all about the basics of brush lettering, how to hold your brush tipped utensil, how to make letters, and common issues that you might face on your journey.
I’ll also teach you all about faux calligraphy and what that means as an artist. I’ll show you how to make your faux calligraphy look professional even if you just started last week.
And! I will walk you through TWO lettering projects that you’ll love.
What else? Oh, and I give you 75+ quality practice pages that I made myself so I know they’re amazing. 10 practice pages JUST with strokes, and then the rest are brush lettering and faux calligraphy practice.
If you’ve been on the fence about learning how to letter, just starting out, or you feel kind of stuck in your journey, this is the course for you.
Lettering Practice Quotes – Week 5 (June 23, 2017)
So this week the style we’re doing is my signature font that I call drops. It’s just something that I’ve been perfecting over the weeks. I’m working on a font packet for those of you who really want to practice the basics of this font, but for now I’ve just got quote practice for you.
- Lettering practice pages (they’re already 8.5 x 11 so you can print them at home or at an office place)
- Brush tipped marker. I’m using a copic marker (You can get one at Michael’s or your local craft store)
The key to these practice pages is that the down strokes are heavy and the up strokes are light. I can say it until the cows come home, guys, that’s just the way the process works. It’s something that will eventually become as natural as breathing even though it doesn’t feel that way just yet.
I’ve even got a quick video for you guys to see the process. I will admit I went a bit fast on this one. I should’ve slowed down a bit because everything wasn’t as good as I know it could’ve been. Also, I apologize for the sound of life behind me. It didn’t occur to me to actually talk. I’ll walk you through next time, I promise!
Here is your practice quote for this week:
