Hi and welome to my new Skillshareclass,

I just love to letter with brushletters in Procreate. I started out on paper with real brushpens for about 4 years ago, but about 2,5 years ago I got a little handsurgery and after 4 days of being grumpy for not getting to becreative, my husband bought me an ipad with apple pencil so I could do it digitaIy. Ever since I barely touched real papers and pens again accept for som cards every now and then.
there are many ways to do some brushlettering and in this class I will be teaching you my way of doing the basics of brushlettering. After you managed to do it this way there is a whole wide world of freestyling out there for you, but I think the basic is very important to start with.
The basics are a little bit boring and some of you will have to do a lot of practice and some find it very easy.
So I tried to make this class as short as possible, starting out with just a few basics and from there on I walk you straight through the whole alphabet. At the end an even more running chapter for my capitals. And off course a bonus class with more fun with some highlites and shadows. So I hope you have fun and if you are a fast learner you can skip some letters but I also give my do’s and don’ts  and some tips through out each letter. If you don’t want to miss that you can watch the whole class through. I made it as short as possible for you.

You’ll be needing an ipad and an apple pencil or an other pressure sensitive stylus for this class. I will provide a small brushset and a specially prepared canvas for this class which you can find in the about section of this class..

Transcripts

1. Announcement intro: Both of them. 2. About this class: Hi and welcome to my new skill share clause. This is a class about my basic brush lettering. This is how my basic brush lettering look like. Well, actually, now that I think of it, it doesn't look quite as good as this was, but my lettering these days is so much different from the basic lettering. When I first started brush lettering, I didn't have consistency in my brush lettering. I was wobbling with strokes and one was sick and the other one was thin. Let us work. Go all the way from slanted to this, to slant it to that. And this is my way of lettering. Perhaps it's not the usual standard way of lettering, but it's my way analyte it like this. And some people asked me to teach them. So this is how I'm going to teach you. I will not be showing you all the way through enormous long practicing scales because that will be very boring. I will teach you a few basic you have to know and you have to practice yourself in lettering. But I want to talk to you all the way through the alphabet of how I do my basic brush lettering. I will do lettering course on bounced lettering and a course on how to get funny colored lettering and water colored lettering later after this class. So not in this class, this is fully done basic. I will going to teach you a few basic moves. And then we're going right to all the letters of the alphabet. So let's get started. 3. Explanation of the canvas: When you go into class, you get from me and Canvas. And Canvas is built like this. I have the guidelines all the way at the bottom. I have some of my letters in the alphabet and I have some capital letters. And perhaps not the way it used to be, but these are my letters. So I think there okay. Like this. And you can teach a, you can learn from me in my way of how I'm doing this. So I hope you will like it. And let's get started with the little basics. Let's go inside. 4. Brush explanation and warm up strokes: So Brush lettering is basically again, between thin and thick lines while writing. Well, actually not writing. It's about drawing your letters because handwriting, Wow, that's sucked. These are my normal letters when I write, it's hardly readable for myself. And sometimes I do a grocery list for my husband to do the groceries in these Covitz times because I hate to do Grove groceries. And I must read it for him out loud because he can't read it and sometimes I can't even read it myself. But when I go to lettering, it's all very clear. The basic Between brush lettering, I already told you. It's a game between thin and thick lines. I made for you. Brush pen. And it's all the way up here. Small set. You'll get it for me in class. I've got a pencil to sketch out your letters. If you want to write a word, it's just to procreate pencil, nothing fancy. I created for you a brush pen, a messy brush pen, and messy in the way that it has some thicker strokes and a bit of jitter. So when you make a great line, you can see it has wobbly sides. And that's to imitate the bleed of the, of the ink into the paper. Because when you have strong a smooth line, it looks to digital for me and I don't like that. So that's how it's called a messy brush pen. The same idea with the monoline. I created it. I make it to a medium size, so it's a lot bigger and you can always make adjustments yourself. And it also has a little wobbly line so you can compare it to find liner on thick paper. So that's what we're going to be using and this one's not so hard. Maybe in the next class I will be using it, but you can use it to get some little words and details Sam in it, so you get it for free in this class. Also, getting over to the messy brush pen, there are some things you need to know about it is has sensitivity. So the most important thing about Brush lettering is when you do a downward stroke, it has to be thick, so you have to press very hard. That's a fixed stroke down. And when you go up, you press with lighter pressure. And that's when you do the app's strokes. So when you're going to practice your lettering first, yes. It's a little bit about practicing. Sorry I lied a bit. You have to practice yourself indeed. First, what you need to know is practice about downstrokes. I will make it quick for you. You can practice as long as you want. So the downside of strokes, look about nine. I guess nine is a good one. Note too big for his canvas. Six. Yes, I like six. The downstrokes is just easy. Making thick lines, pressing a bit on your pencil. And the upstroke are thinner. So you make lighter obstructs. Practice and feel what your pencil does. You can make your own preferences when you go to the wrench to go to preferences, you see here at its pressure curve, that is the pressure your Apple Pencil uses for Debra's lettering. So if you have, if you think this is way too sensitive for you, maybe you should change this into a little S shaped form. That's the way Hi, how I started out with brush lettering. But I was noticing I was pressuring too hard on my pencil dose. So that's why I might add more sensitive. You can play with that to your own liking. And also within the brush you can choose for a streamline if you think you are way wobbling in writing or you're handshakes too much or you can't get a smooth lines, may be do your streamline, streamline a little bit higher. But be careful not to push it too high. Because when you do it too high and you create a o, it shrinks because you're going too fast. So that's a little bit about Ben and the brush littering. The first one we're going to practice is like this. Very easy. Practice yourself putting on hold if you think it's too long. And the second one we go into practice is a little how do you call it on the term? Yes, I was I didn't know the word anymore. So it's their string we want to talk about is the letter i. Well, that's easy. That's a downstroke, but we don't want to do that. I want to do a clean I with an overturned and a slight on the turn. So how do we do it? We going upwards, so we slightly lift, which were slightly touched the pencil and lifted in a bit. So I when I say lifts, I'm having less pressure and when I push, I'm not getting your baby ops. I'm just pushing all my pencil to get a wider stroke so it's lifting, lifting, lifting, making it turn pressure a little bit more and more, push, push, push, push all the way down. And in my undeterred I lift, lift, lift, lift, lift a little bit. So I'm going very slowly here. So you see you a little bit cranky in it so it doesn't matter. So it's a lift and turn, push, push, push, push, push, push, enter, lift, lift, lift, lift, lift. So that's the first one. You've got to practice this. And if you do so, you can also make it go all the way up. So it's a lift and a bench and a push, push, push back and up, up, up all the way up till there. When I do like more, more false like now, the lines will get smoothed out because of the, the tempo I'm writing. I'm getting stuck. I hope you can see it's still Yes, I guess he's the next thing I want you to practice is making a turn and overturn and an undetermined and an overturned and, and, and the term that's what I want you to practice. It's very hard to sometimes you have to stop here because it's way too big. When you go smaller. It's more easy. It's very hot and here I'm fairly clammy. So it's overturn on the turn overturn on the turn overturn on the door and you see how it smoothens out. And these could be a lot smaller, but you get the hang of it when you do this, you can also make adjustments to the, to the pencil if you'd like. But this are, these are the basic forums in brushed lettering. So if you've got the hang of this, we'll practice your ascenders and descenders. Your ascenders are the ones that go up in the air till the lines. So it's like simple stroke for TBI or a stroke for a p. That's the descender. They go all the way to the stippled lines you see here. So we're going to make them with a turn in a little loop. So for the beam, for example, we make this one. And for the j will make this one. So let's do it slowly. It's an uplifting movement to top. And then we go into push, push, push downwards. And we end at the bottom. So it's slightly lifted, lifted, lifted, bended pressure, pressure, push, push, push, push, stop. And for the J, It's like downwards. So we start with a push. We put down the pencil, push, push, push, push, push, bent, lift, lift, lift, lift lives all the way up here. So that's the most of our lead, SSH. And we are going to practice oval-shaped. For example, the oh, I always saw a really hard one venule first trying out because we're going to start at, well, approximately between 12 o'clock. If you if a 0.2 direction. So we going all the way clockwise counterclockwise. So we're going first, we going up. So it's an uplifting movements. So up, up, up bends proves push, push, push bends up, up, up, up, up. So if you practice this law and off, I think you're are ready to do some writing. It is not hard. I will talk you through each of each and every letter about the do's and don'ts of the letter. And I will tell you some tips in between. I could imagine that somewhere halfway or after a few letters. Q Got the trick on how it's done, please, if you do so, move on to the next chapter. No hard feelings. And if you have heart Time, if you find it to hard time and you think it's difficult, or you want to see how I do my lettering? Or do you want to hear some extra tips? Please be welcome to to see the whole DO video. Well, see you in the next chapter. 5. Letters A-G: So 48, we go in to do just like the o we practiced in the first. We're going to do it counterclockwise. We make an O. So we go lift, lift, lift, bent, push, push, push bends, lift, lift, lift. I went a bit slow, so a little bit cranky. And that's now hard, disarmed on them to make it a little stick around it. So I'm going to put my pencil down and push right away. Push, push, push, push, push band, lift, lift, lift, lift. So that's how I make my a so lifts, bends, push, lift all the way to the top and a stick goes pushing right away. Push down and up. That's how I do my a the Don'ts about a don't make your oval too small. And this is right. Don't make it too small. Unless you do all the letters like this, then it's OK but not too small. And also the thing you must not do is put the stick of a, I don't know how it's called stick or almost over over this letter. So just plays it closely. This is too close. You see this one is more open. He's has more space to this. And therefore, you can see more of the thin line. This is overlapping and so it's making the letter a little bit more crops and I don't like that. So but it looks on the, already a bit different if it only touches on the upper half, you see the difference between that. Just now, like this or like this is to crops. We don't like that. And I'm going to tell you, this is mostly about all the letters that are coming right now. So that's a big don't for me, It's still readable, but I don't think it's nice. It I want to have open and clean letters. So that's about the a might be a stick. And all the way at the bottom at right, we're going to make kind of an oval shape. But we're going to weigh up the clockwise. So we're going to go up. So that must be a thinner line. And then we going down with pushing and a little bit of an upstroke. So all the way at the right, bottom sides, thin things in big, bent, bent, push, push, push, bend, and up again. This is a nice B. It has some space between in-between the stick and the belly of the, of the beam. We can also make it with a little loop. So we go up again. So lift, lift, lift, lift, bend, push, push, push. And then we go up. So lift, lift bands, push, push to earn lift. So we're going to do it like this. And when you want to have another letter next to it. We can also do, I think this loop is a little small. We can make it a little bigger when you haven't next letter to it, we have to do a curly thing to get over to the next line. So we run a practice that all in once. So everywhere between the stick and a bit and another shape we can lift our hand so we can move our hand so we can make a bigger loop. I live it bigger, better. And that's not much bigger. Yeah, I like it like this. And so I lift my hand, no worries. I can move my hand bits. And on the right bottom sides we're going to make an IASB out of it. I think this is a nice one. And then we go to letter C. A C is easy. As long as you know your a and your E and your your ovals already a c is just going up with the uplift, lift, lift, lift bands, push bands, lift, lift. So that's easy. Up, lift bands, Bush and lift again. The Don'ts about to see is don't go too small. I don't like it. No harm. Damned if you do all let us this way. Okay. But it's love, difficult to read. So make it open letters, Weiner letters. That's easy. Well, the d is very easy. Once you know the C, push, push, lifts go all the way up like we did with a and then we make a large thick it is one is barely touching but I'll I get don't do too much. Overlapping like we said with the a. I don't think it's clean. This one is too wide. This one is to close. This is better. Just barely touching. I like my d like this. Practice as long as you want. But I will move on to letter e. The letter E, It's mostly to the sides. Then we go upwards. So the site and upwards isn't lifting movement. And when we go down, we push and we go up again with a lifting movement again. So lift, lift, lift, lift, lift band, push, push, push and lift, lift, lift again. I think this one is a little too sick to my liking, but I have problem myself with a letter like that. So I have to practice more on my basic lettering again. So lift, lift, bend, push, push, bend, lift, lift, lift, lift. Well, this is around one I like to make my E with a coroner. This is how I like my but you can do whatever you like. They're all different 0s just as long as you go with sinner up strokes and thicker downstrokes, and make the letter a little bit wide. You can't do no harm. Let's get on to the F. The F Got too long sticks. So I think for me this is a little bit big to practice and I hope you can see when I do it a little bit in down in size, I start off way. Make a big loop. Thin, bend, push, push, push, push, push bends, lift, lift, lift, lift, lift. So the only way I'm going to make a sick stroke is a long way down. So lift, lift, bend, push, push, push, push, push, lift, lift, lift, lift. That's my f. I think this is too small. You see when I go slowly and I want to talk too much, even so, this is not a nice overturn. So we're going to make some adjustments to that so it's easily fixed. So make sure you're going to improve that when you have some corners like that. Next to the f, We have G. The G is same like the a with a j, a orgy. And making a j next to it. Also not overlapping and create enough space. You can make this as big as you want. So its lift, lift, push, push, push, lift, lift, lift again, close it and gave it a big loop. You can make every turn you like. So let's get over to the H. 6. Letters H-M: The h, almost exactly like the F, but we stop at the bottom of this line. So it's or to be yes, it was almost like be yeah. So they make a big loop going upward. So lift, lift, lift bands, push, push, enter, and all the way down. And then we are going slightly to the right corner on the knees. And we're going to make a loop with an overturned and stop at the bottom and gave it and on the turn. So that's how we going to create an h. This one is a little bit too large, but I like them better when they're too large then when they are too small. So perhaps you don't like it like this. Be happy and welcome to create your own lettering. So I'll do it again. I go lift, lift, lift bands, push, push, push, stop, moving my hand. And go up. Lift, lift lifts, bends and push, push, push and bend and lift, lift, lift. So this is how the H is done. The y data, ie, the eye, the eye. The eye is the most simple letter off everyone, everything. And you practiced it in the beginning. So it's up Ben's push, bent, lighter. So I, I always go continuing my other letters and at the end I will do my dot on top. Then we go to the j. The j is something we did with G. Down, down, down, push, push band, lift, lift, lift, lift, lift. Something like this. And at the end a little dots. If you have a i and a j next to each other or ice somewhere in this word, makes sure the dots are approximately at the same height to make it continuously decay, decay something different, I write case two ways. The correct way I think is this one. So we go up and push, push, push down. And we make a little overturn, up, up, up a bush, push more, close with a little upward movement you see. And then we have slightly different. I don't do a sick stroke downwards because I don't like that. Perhaps in original It has to be done but I don't like it, so I make a small downward stroke to keep it light and not so heavy. When I do it. The other way, I will show you the difference. Up, up, bends, push, push, push. I go upwards, push, push, push. I think it's okay. But I think this one is more funny or so. I like to fund the lettering. So choose whatever you like. I think both can be done. What whatever you choose, it doesn't matter, but if you have two case in one word or one quote, please make sure you have the same as you did before. That's why you need to practice for your mama. Muscle memory and your memory in the, in the letters. So and the other k decay you see me writing in my my lettering these days is a funny one. So I've been a little bit with cookie letters. And I do small like this from this line. And I go like that. I think that's funny one. So that's my k these days. But you can do it like whatever you want. The letter l is ready easy. Us already practice it on the B and the H, but we're going to make a slight on the term underneath. So we go upwards. Light, light, light, light, bend, push, push, push, push, push, push, blend and light. That's my small letter L. And sometimes you can choose with or without a loop, but this is easy. Just practice it. Up, up, bends, down, down, push, push, push and slightly up again. Almost like a large stretched. And we're almost halfway because we are turning into letter m. The letter M is slightly up. Then push down and stop. And this is a big don't for me. I don't want you to go and repeat this because this will be getting too close. It's not wrong, but I don't like it. I like it. Where you start here, here, down, down, and all the way to the right, straight away, make overturned on the term. That's my letter m. So actually, this isn't wrong. I said it wrong. This is also good. But I personally, personally don't like it too much. I want to start at the bottom to stretch my letters a little bit bigger and happier. So this is actually it is okay, but not for me. So I make my letters like this, down, start down. You see the difference in the letters. This is more swinging and fine tunes. So let's go to the next half of the alphabet. Well, this is CO1. Quickly write. I hope for you, It's not too boring. Otherwise, feel free to skip it, or if you like it, please stay with me and I'll take you the whole way through. 7. Letters N-T: So after the m comes the n, well, that's a piece of cake. Now when you've done the em up, bent, push, push, push, push down and stop. And all the way from the bottom and the right side of the bottom, you go up slightly, slightly, slightly bends push, push, push and little up again. So lifts Ben's push, push, push and stop. Lift, lift, bends, push, push, push, push and bend and lift again. And you start lifting. A propellant may at the bottom. Just before the bottom comes. There is why you've got to start lifting it again. Oh, wow, we practice that one. It's easy. Slightly counter clockwise up. So you will be lifting up, lift, lift, lift, lift, bend, push, push, push, push band, lift, lift, lift, lift, lift. It's not a whole round is cut an oval for me. As long as your downstroke is thicker than your upstroke, you almost can't go wrong. And when you have to write o in combination with another letter, you can do it like this. And push, push, push and over TOR, like this. This down, only down here, you're gonna push. And this one is kept slightly thinner, but you can make it a little bit sicker, but not as sick as this one. So play along how you like it. You can also start more lower. So push, push, push, push, push, and all the way like this. Make it a cute Eli. That's a nice one. So these are my OS. And we'd go into the peat. The b is just a little stick downstairs. And I start here at the bottom where we started with our ends and R j, R ends and our m's. So we're gonna make it like a, B, the rounding like hubby, push and make it a little turn. You can also stop before you make the turn. It's also OK. It's a nice p when you write loose letters. But when you want to write something next to it, it's better to make a curly p just according to your lettering styles you like is if you don't like, It's just keep it with this one. Also. Make sure you're going at the right side of the stick and not all the way or just from up here. So for the q, we're going to make exactly the warm like the a or the D. Just going downwards. So we going up and lifting up, lift, lift bends, push, push, push, bend up, stop. Lift your hand, and stick all the way down till here. And then I'm going to have a slight stripe at the bottom. When I have to make adjustments for another letter. I do. We'd like this. Q cubed, one like this. And I go up, down and up again, and then I'm going to create another letter after this. So like a queue. This is how I write my q. Then the letter R is somewhat difficult. I like to write him with a loop. So loop is always thin for me. So I write it with a little loop, little thin, thin thing. And then I'm going to start with a big stroke down and little i again. So it's little curl and then the letter I. And sometimes people write it like this. That's also fine. Sometimes it's easier to write it like this. Because I think when you have to let a P, for example, as writing letter in front of it. So capital letter P. And you have to start your sentence with the word priority. So you go into make big P And then you, Where do you get your coliform? It's very weird to get it from here. So then I make these kind of Our next to it. So I don't make adjustment. You can yeah. You can make it small like this, but I don't like it. I have to like it lose her then. So, well, it's your choice, but these are my R's in basic brush lettering. That is, when you go boundary again, go all the way down with your strokes. We're going to the S. The S is just upwards and the whole way down, push, push, push, push, push, push, push and upwards again. And sometimes we can play with it. We can make a smaller, smaller, sized on top. So push, push, push, push, push, push and lift is OK. So D is also okay. And we can make it even smaller and push, push, push and a bigger as and go through. So you can write another letter, like a letter T next to it. This is my loop. I like it like this, but I can also make it very big at the bottom. So push, push, push and a small downsize. It's just how you like it. It doesn't matter how you do it. Just as long as you keep the upstroke is thin and thick and keep it consistent. So if you choose for one word, this S, chose it for all the words of all the letter S. In that part, you're going to write well, the letter t I just showed you. Not so hard. So a big thing down and the lift, it's a large i. And then with a thin stroke to match it. I think this is the only T I create. There are lots of more T sum, sum, always sum, right? With these t's. So like this and something like that. But I like this more. 8. Letters U-Z: So the letter U is almost like the letter N with overturns under turns. But then at different places, keep that in mind. So it's almost like starting with the letter I. Go, lift, lift, lift, bend, push, push, push, push bends, upwards, lift, lift, lift all the way to the top, and then create a stick just like the A against it. Make sure this is a little bit too wide perhaps, but make sure you have a straight corner here and a nice on the turn out here. Otherwise you can easily be mistaken it for an N. And I don't like that. I find it hard, defeats just ship a simple shape. But sometimes it looks like you or I don't like it. I have different ways of writing it and I'm not well, I think now after four years of writing letter V, I don't write it as much, but I think I like it like this. A downstroke, slightly cornered and a thick of a thin upstroke. So push-down, bent strongly and lighter upstroke, that's simple v. But you can also make it with a slightly undetermined push, lifts and go up. This is a nice fee. And then you can think of creating a loop ofs or IT, or you can just like the art and little wing. And sometimes you can't go even more higher and create your loop down there or a bigger loop. Just make sure you're going to read the words. Clearly. Don't overdo it. The W is almost the same like the Devi. I like to write my W's like this. So a little i and small i against it, thick and bend and thin up. And I'm going to do it again. So push, push, push band lifts, stop, hallway up, and push, push, push band lift all the way up. And also for these counts, you can make it with a loop or you can create a wide loop or just with the r, like that one. I think you can play with it. I think it's a boring letter when you see it like this. So I ride my WAS with a little bouncing these days. I think that's more fun. I like fun. Then we go to the letter X. Dx is a downstroke chump and a small sin, abstract. Now, it's boring. So we make it more nicely and software. So we're going to do uplifting and bends and push and lift again. And we go into go down with a smaller and lighter touch and go up all the way with lighter touch and down again with a lighter touch show Ds is going to be a lighter touch all the way. I think this is a nice x. It's more fun than the cross you mate. We're almost there. We're going to letter one. Letter Y is likely you. So we go up, lift, lift, lift bands and push down, pushed down, bend and lift again all the way up. And then we go into place a j next to it. So we going push down, down, push, push, push band, lift, lift, lift, lift, lifts, and make your turn. That's a y. You can also choose to make it a little cookie. It's just how you like it. Just make sure you're going thinner upwards and thicker downwards. And then we have the Z. The Z is very strange letter to me. It's almost like you go on to write a two. So it's up, bend, pushed down, stop. And we go in to create this again, but with a loop next to it. So we're going to create the same thing. Push, push, lift, lift. So this is our letter Z from brush lettering. It's an old-fashioned letter. And I don't like this one. I don't like that one. So I always write this letter Z. And it's very strange because it only looks okay when you use it in a word. So our Dutch word for some is zone. And then we write with a o zone and with an N. And now it's actually make sense when you read it. For us. There is literally son zoom written down here. So the letter Z is a strange letter when you see it loose, but when it's connected to other letters, it's fine and it's purely readable. So if you made it till here, could be complex for yourself because you done it's the whole way, the whole alphabet, my way. I hope you like it. Let's go through the capitals. 9. Walk through of the capital letters: So for the capitals, I'm going to talk you through very fast because I don't want these lesson to be longer than it needs and you have to practice yourself. So we're going to put on the capital layer. And here you can see, and you can go a layer above the group. And there you can let your and you can practice on this practice sheet. I got my size at ten now, and that's probably going to fit like this. So I'm going to talk you through. So an a is lift, lived, lived, lived, lift, lift off your pencil, make news, drug, push, push, push down. And that's my a, you can choose if you want the series on it or not. For this one, I'm not going to do the service because I wanted to make it quick for you and not to barring my B is down. Push, stop. It's too straight. Push and stops. Lifting my hand. Lift, lift, lift, bent, push and push, lift. This c is almost the same, exactly the same like the little one. Is. Lift, lift, push, push, push, lift, lift. The D, push down, stop, lift, lift, lift, bent, push, bent, lift. The push down. And all the sides are small size. And I almost choose for the service all the time. For this one, I make it a little bit sicker than the flat strokes, but not as thick as this one. This one goes down, is one is over, it's o away, and this one only up. So this is my I0. The f is almost the same. So push down, flat thin, slightly pushed, flat thin, slightly pushed. The gene the same as the, as the sea but with a little more upward and a sideward. So up, push, push, push up, and push a little bit down. The h. Well, easy, too thick downs and one flats in the middle. The why I almost do it all the time with series on. Otherwise it aims at i, the j, similar to normal GA, also with a serif on it. Or you can choose to make it go like this and then push it is yeah, it's what you like. But yeah, I think it can do can do it both ways. Decay for me is thick down and two, sin downs. Sinner. I like him like this because it gives more open spaced literature and lead to L pushed down. Sideward slightly and little bit more. Letter M. For me, it's like this push-down, small down lifts, lifting lifting and push again. And you see when I go down, my lines will go thinner in India. In the bottom. It's what I use. So maybe it's just a little bit sloppy of me, but I like it. I'm going to create a j. Otherwise is an empty space. The N is almost the same. Thick push sin downstairs. Thin one. Yes, indeed, anything worked. And I like it as Sometimes I like it when it's longer. Just how my movies. The o is the same as we practice it upwards, lift, lift, bent, push vents lifts. The p is pushed down all the way down from the downside, like we practice with the n and the m, all the way up. And the little turn push down and lift up again. And a queue is like the o lift, bent, push, bends, lifts. And then with a little singing and it's also with a little downstroke and push and lifts When you go upwards. The art is similar like w0, but with the sin from the k. So it's push, push all the way down here with a light touch, lift, lift, lift, lift, bent, push, stop. And with thin stroke down and lift. My S here. I think it's a little bit big, but hey, it's a capital, so I think it's okay. And while, so once you differently, you can do it differently yourself. But let's make it for the purpose of the clause, a slider, lighter, upstroke. So lifts EM, push and lift and push. I think it's fun. It's a little bit practice. It's like you do small, small, small. That's the way you're going to do this letter, but you can also do it with one stroke. So lift, em, push, push, push, push, lift. That's also a great s. So t, fairly easy, pushed down all the way and lighter strokes here and a bit like the E and F. Do you fairly simple, almost like the o but not all the way up. So it's thick down, bend, lift. And then I always do this arrows on it because otherwise it's more like what kind of letter is it's it looks like a V or yeah, I don't like it mostly I do it all the way. Bent it a little bit more, but I think it's okay like this. And then for the fee, I have it little bit hooked so I stop lifts and then abort stroke. So push it down, stop lifts and then go with the upward stroke. And also well, not always. I don't like it. I could always little bit cranky with them. So I I I I tried to avoid them. So my W is like pushing down heart, lift, push and lift. And you can choose for your service or not. Capital X is straight lines pushed and a slider upstroke. The y is like the U and the small. Why? Why we did? So? It's push, bend, lift, stop, foolish, bend, lift, stub. And let us see here you have him like sorrow. I don't like it. I tried to avoid it. It's straight here, flat, slim, slightly pressured than sick down, push, push, and then soft touch. And then we're always going to do this. And now you've got all the capital letters. So this is it. You made it to the end of the class. Thank you very much. Please remember some of you will have to take more time to practice and some of you will get the hang of it fairly fast. It doesn't matter. Take your time, take pleasure in it, and it doesn't have to be good right away on, I know. Don't compare your beginning to someone else's next level. So just enjoy. And if you write some words, please tag me on Instagram. You can find me on the treble. And you can also show it into projects session of CSR clause. I would love to see what you made and what you wrote of it, and thank you for watching and hope to see you in my next class, my next class where we have a little bit about bronchi lettering. So we take this to the next level. And then I'm going to create a class about, let's get wacky with those letters and do some water coloring or other coloring styles. I've got to think about that. So thank you for watching and hope to see you next class. Bye bye. 10. Bonus class highlights and shadows: So as for a bonus of this class, I want to say thank you. And for this one, I'm going to work with some highlights and some shadow. I've got a screen sized paper here. I've put it in landscape mode. And I'm going to sketch out how a want to have the letters. So just simple. Thank you. That will be fine. So maybe replace it a little bit. So in the center, maybe gone to change that some bigger. That's fine. I just edit like this and I'm going to leave it small as just a little reminder of how big my letters could be. So I'm making the opacity very slow, very slightly. So it's barely visible to me, but it will help me. These are the steps I normally don't do, but it's when you start, it's very easy to do it like this. So in a layer above that, I will be showing you the lines I'm going to make very easily so you don't have to use the guidelines from the canvas. You can use them, but it's not. I'm always obliged. So perhaps a simple line will do the trick for you. So I'm taking my pencil again. I'm going to make one straight line, just about here. So I let my finger touch the screen so it snaps and then slow, so a very straight line. And I'm also going to do that under hair SNP. So, and I'm going to make this a little less capacity also. So I can see the lines, I can see where I have to make the letters. And then on top of that, I'm going to make a new layer. And now I'm going to write the letters. And I have to think for myself, I have to do it very neat and basic. So I'm, I'm hope I'm I can do that for you. So I can do it with a small step again. I have my size about 14%. Let me try. Yeah, that will be fun. So push it and bend it and slightly tilde at MIT. So I'm going to push, stop, lifts, band, push. And lift bands, push, lift up and put it down and straight to the bottom at pushing Polish. And the end, push, stop. And of the rights downside, you go into lifted up again, lifts, band push, band lifts, and then for the k, push all the way down and stop. And I'm going to make the K very like we did in class. So it's gonna be from the left, bottom up. Lifts, bend, foolish. And I'm going to do a thicker downstroke because I liked it in class. So it's push band up again. So and for the work you, I'm going to use another layer because then I can make adjustments. If I want to create bigger, I want to tell them something or just always make every new word on a new layer. That's easy when you learn yourself into that. So I'm going to write you push band, lift up, still thick. Polish bend lifts. Push, lift. You see, I liked I liked the little hooked shape here. And push band lifts. And push band lift. Push band lift. Now I think that turned out fine. But now when I have done it in different layer, I can make adjustments if I like, for instance, want to move it. I can easily move it to the center so you can do anything with it. You like, I think it's fine like this because I like it clean and sometimes you can see if it's all in the middle of the contrast by making this group together. So I've won Layer selected, slightly tipping it to the right so now I can create a group out of it. And when I touch the whole group, I can move the whole group. So I guess slightly see if it's in the center. So now it's more in the center and eyeball it well, approximately the same highs from the upper end, the downside of the paper. So I think that's OK. So I can delete now the lines I've used, my sketch I used, so I only got the letters now. And for this one I'm going to make a duplication of it. So I duplicate the whole group. And the one at the bottom, I will be using for a shadow. So I'm going to flatten this because it's easier to move it like this. And to make the opacity I, otherwise I have to do the opacity layer by layer. So now I'm going to flag this so tough on the group. And it's a flattened so it's all in one layer. And now, for the sake of the clearance of the video, I'm going to change this already a little bit in capacity, say about 50%, I'm going to do it more. But now you can see what I'm doing with it. Because this is one is less opus, less opaque now it will be a little bit gray. So I can turn it a little bit, selects a selected group and remove it. And my highlights will be coming from the upper left side. So my shadows were becoming too the downside of the paper. So I'm going to tap this slightly and move it a little bit to the left. You see this left corner. And then I'm going to change the opacity a little bit more by clicking on its end slides. And when you done jumbo pencils, I like the use of the 95 and that's a great color foreshadowing the letter. So I will be doing it slightly. And now I have more lighter gray. And I think I can use it a little bit more like here. So let's, You're going to float a bit from the background. So I think we've got a nice shadow. I zoom in so you can see my shadow. And on top of that, I'm going to give it a little bit highlight. So I go all the way above the black layer. So all the way on top, I'm going to change my color to a white by double tapping. And then I'm going to use the media messy tip. You remember it's a fine liner. And with this one, I'm going to make slightly little highlights in the upper left corner of all the thick strokes. So use the bending of the letter also. I think this one is to fix, so I'm going to change it a little bit smaller. Yes, that's how I like it. I'll flip the way. You can also choose by just doing stripe and three little dots that will have an lovely, a lovely, sparkling and fun. Yeah, how do you say look about it? So that's what I'm going to do for this one. Step, slightly tip, tip, tip. And go to do this all the way at the left side and the upper side of the letters. So this is also a left side of the downward stroke of the a 23123. That's the only thing I'm going to do about it, but it's fun. And it makes it look a little bit more lovely and sparkly. I don't go into use it on the downstroke on here because I think it will be too much. And that's how you easily can write a lovely, thank you for all of you to take part of this new class. Please remind me, remind yourself of posting your work and about the project session of this class. So thanks again for watching and I hope to see some lovely words you written after you take this class and practicing a lot of it. And thank you.
