Show your Handwriting/Calligraphy!

Postby imbecilica » Fri 25 Sep 2009 8:15 am

The purpose of this post is for you to show off your writing whether in handwriting or calligraphic style in any script or however you wish to do so.

I'm just excited because I just bought a starter kit for calligraphy today hehe! I bought it from my university bookshop right after my lecture. I'm gonna do so badly. :lol:

Am I being too random? :roll:
My writing is so messy and the bet turned out to look like a kaf :oops:
Can you recognise this character?
Nope, it's not shāng. It is a 囧 with a hat which 囧ed its chin off!

How many scripts are on here? I see Latin, two different kinds of Chinese (I think), Japanese, Korean, Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew and some IPA symbols. There was one I couldn't recognize which reminded me of bopomofo.

Yeah, I noticed that.

Also the correct spelling is العربية. You missed the two dots.
العربية * 中文 * English * Français * Русский * Português * Español * हिन्दी/اردو * Deutsch * 日本語

Kaenif, your handwriting is awesome! Also, is that semi-cursive Chinese I see?

Oops :oops:

The unknown script is my conscript Iaswü. The symbols on the right are the numerals of the vigesimal system. :)
The sample sentence is some English song lyrics. Can you guess which song it is? :P

Nope, it's just some fast scribbles XD

Kay, here is mine.

For English now I [try to] write with the cursive script there. I used to write with the messy script (fourth row). Though now while taking notes I sometimes do a mix.

Also note my cursive ff that I made a thread about earlier.

For cursive capital A, I don't like to do a larger version of the lowercase a like they teach you in school. In fact, none of my capitals look like larger versions of smaller letters. (Even those that in printing would.)

EDIT: oh yea, I curve my d's inwards.

EDIT2: Also I don't like it when capital letters are separate from the rest of the word in cursive. Most of my capital letters attach, though some don't.

The italic script isn't perfected.

I don't know why I wrote a long s in baſsoon. It happens sometimes. (I use the long s sometimes when I deem it good looking, and baſsoon is a time I'd deem it not good looking. But whatever.)

The Chinese cursive (我唔知道點樣寫廣東話囧) was really me trying. I don't write like that everyday. (Mainly because in my Chinese class everyone writes in printing—I don't think cursive is acceptable.) The second column is what I use for my personal notes and the first column is what I use for assignments/school work.

I don't know Simplified Chinese, but I took the cursive 的 from my mom. (That last character in the simp chinese sentence is a 的)

Hangul again was also me trying. I'm not sure if that is even acceptable cursive hangul or not.

Then I just wanted to fill the rest of the page.

Ok, so here's my handwriting:

First is a part of my favourite Slovak epic poem, in two styles: the first one I wrote a bit more carefully and tried to keep all letters of a word connected, the other one I wrote as I normally would write it.

Then there are numerals and the entire Slovak alphabet.

After that the UDHR in Slovak, Serbian in Cyrillic and Croatian in Cursive Glagolitic.

Hee hee! Pretty scripties indeed! :mrgreen: And I don't even have a scanner ( but I plan to get another one eventually ) those are images that were scanned when I did have a scanner.

So that was about a year ago. Delodephius: How'd learn the Glagolitic script let alone in cursive?
