Welcome back to my Brush Lettering Alphabet Series. This time we will learn how to letter the lowercase “d”.
I’m using the lettering practice sheet from my Brush Strokes Workbook to demonstrate how to letter lowercase “d” and I’m using the Tombow Fudenosuke hard pen.
As always, we will start this session with an inspiring quote. This time, it is from Sir Martin Luther King Jr.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
Do not let fear or doubt stop you from trying and discovering your talent or the things that you are meant to do. All it takes is that small beginning step in that staircase.
So come on board and let’s learn how to letter the lowercase “d” together.
Tips for Brush Lettering
Focus on breathing and going slow. The slower you go, the better you will be able to focus on the transition between the thick and thin strokes of your letter.
One of the differences between calligraphy and handwriting is that in calligraphy you pick up your pen between each stroke.
Don’t worry about getting it perfect. You will see progress when you practice consistently even if for just a few minutes per day.
There’s no right or wrong when using modern calligraphy and brush lettering. You have the freedom to create your own style.
