Starting with...you guessed it the letter A
First let us start by printing out your letter A practice sheets. If you can see what I am talking about it will be better for your visual understanding. I suggest printing on a laser printer if you have it as it is crisper and or using the black and white setting on your printers to save ink. I have included a PDF version and JPG for your convenience of printing whichever is easiest. For a limited time each of the newest launched practice sheet sets will be available for free. I suggest joining our Newsletter for updates on this so you wont miss them when they are free. After the initial launch period is over (1 week) each of the sets will then be available for $1, (to help support the site). You will also be able to purchase the whole Alphabet set, (coming soon) for a discounted price if you are impatient to really dig in or need to catch up. Ok, all printed? let's go!
Next Tip. When working with hand lettering its best to practice uniformity by positioning your hand at the same angle for making each letter, as well at watching the heights. Asymmetrical, (having parts that fail to correspond to one another in shape, size, or arrangement; lacking symmetry) is sometimes fun depending on what lettering you do and your intent, but it can also make your lines look sloppy. If you trace over the letters in the practice you will get a hang for the uniformity of that particular style and angles. Try not to deviate.
I also suggest printing out some of the calligraphy practice sheets as well so that you can work on each of the individual letters after the lesson and compare them to the practice sheets to see how you are doing. The Calligraphy sheets will also help you keep track of what pen you used for that session. Ok ready to give it a go on your own? Get to it!
I really wish to know how you do with this so comment and let me know. See you next time with the letter "B"!
