Need to practice my calligraphy. Give me something to write (names, quotes, etc.) and I'll write it in nice lettering and link the picture to you.

@hualicious no problem and thank you very much.
Hmm with Copperplate and Spencerian the letter forms are very similar. But there are certain rules that makes it easier to memorize. For example, for Copperplate, most majuscules have a spine (universal line of beauty). Spencerian is far more variable and I've seen people incorporate more ornamental majuscules but after you stare at them long enough it's not too hard. For the most part the majuscules are all drawn in one long stroke.
For other scripts, with broad edges, my favorite being Fraktur, it's a lot harder since, on the whole, the letters look abstract and it takes a while to figure it out.
But to answer your question, I did need to look at some exemplars initially but after practicing long enough, you get the feel of it and there's no need for a sheet or exemplar anymore :]
@hangwithhung: Thanks David! It looks pretty. Do you memorize all the alphabeth calligraphy shapes or you look at some sheet?
@hualicious done done
@hangwithhung: Ah thank you for posting. It looks great. Can you write 'Hualicious' for me?
@figherdoken @goldenhedgy. Sorry if the letters look really different, I'm trying a different script.
^ idk if you still taking requests but yea
@hangwithhung can you do : [Polar] Bear Lung for me? One of my Ferrets just passed away in her sleep
@hualicious I'll tag you later when I'm out of class. I have the pen on me now but I just can't take a picture of it yet.
@goodfortuna Two pencils is awesome but it only works for broad edge :[ Even water brushes on Zen Boards sometimes don't really get it, since the brush doesn't have the same resilience to bending as do most nibs, so you get more of a "modern calligraphy" look the same as with a pointed nib. Sadly, my control is awful and so in the end I can't make the sharp stops at the bottom of some letters and it just looks as though I'm using a brush anyway haha
@hangwithhung: take a picture of it and also from a close shot of the nib. I did find the Jinhao fountain pen yesterday when I was randomly looking around on the internet.They had nice decorations on them.
@goodfortuna: it's ok, it happens
You can practice calligraphy with two pencils bound together. This way you don't waste ink either.
haha to be honest I'm not even that sure, myself. It's one of the Jinhao pens with a marble casing, originally medium width nib. he outfitted it with a very, very flexy one that's just gorgeous and great to practice with. kind of scared to touch nibs + holders for a bit before I've gotten good form. those things don't last long lol
@hangwithhung oooo care to share what model pen? I have a minor obsession with fountain pens but I haven't ventured into the flex nib territory yet as I like to use my pens for everyday stuff not calligraphy. Maybe I'll get the noodler's ahab one day though!
@hualicious I'm actually using a modified fountain pen that I got from my friend :] @goodfortuna good guess haha
@hualicious oops that's so embarrassing sorry! ^^;
@goodfortuna: Thanks, I went to google it.
You spelled my Basil name wrong so I didn't get the notification.
@haulicious not a brush he's probably using some sort of flex nib dip pen or fountain pen
Which calligraphy brush are you using?
@hangwithhung: Haha thanks. You're the best XD
@helpingly who knows they might just end up being a couple lol
@hangwithhung: Anytime. It's just my job to be helpful! Keep up with the good work
Also, sorry to be a bother, but could you do Amanda+Andrew? Wanna mess with some friends
@helpingly thanks so much!
@hangwithhung: Wow that was fast. Yeah no worries. I love this thread
If you ever need more let me know.
@helpingly sorry about reposting the other one haha. I'm learning to pump these out quicker too your request is done!
If you're still looking for practice can you do "Celebrity"? Thanks
@fighterdoken anytime :]

thanks a bunch <3
@fighterdoken didn't have any time to put in any flourishes but keep coming back with requests and they'll slowly but surely be working their way into the pieces :]
@hangwithhung Could you do Kane & Caitlin?
@tashie no problemmm
@hangwithhung: omggg i love it !! thank you so much ^_^

@rtyu anytime :]
@tashie finally posted yours!
@hangwithhung: Ahh thank you so much! This fills my heart with much warmth. And I find Mihile truly amazing, regardless of funds
@keyan22 omg sorry haha
@hangwithhung: Was wondering why I didn't get a notification lol, you put kenyan22.
@keyan22 oh no worries my normal writing is trash haha
@hangwithhung: Looks fancy, it's a lot better than how i'd write something, lol.
@firebolt my grip's the only thing that makes me proud of lifts. double overhand to 200 ftw haha. I'll definitely give it a shot. thanks!
@hangwithhung: practice each segment of lifts then. Start from just doing the 1st 1/2 with the straight lift upwards. Then grab 2 boxes and practice the motion starting from knee up. Get some wraps if your grip is failing so that you can directly concentrate on 1 thing without worrying. Those wraps blessed my lifts.
@firebolt i thought about the no shoes thing but the arches in the foot are pretty important. I really need to start working on speeding through with my pulls and all. wooh. biggest problem is how I use my knees. been reading books on it and still can't get it right.
@hangwithhung: Trying DL with no shoes, you have a lot more base stability and can explode straight upwards. Get your squat down lower and start using your back after you get the bar past your knees. Main point to consider is that the DL is more a push than a pull, where you thrust your hips forward while keeping your back straight instead of hinging and pulling all with the back. Practice make's perfect
@firebolt omg no my DL is terribad. Form's all out of whack :[
I'll get to everyone else's later today, too!
Nice deadlift, keep at it!
dont wanna request but damn that looks good
