Handwriting in the Italic Style

Handwriting in the Italic Style - student project

Here is my 'before' handwriting. I've honestly rarely written anything in cursive since I left elementary school and was no longer forced to haha :) I always found it really difficult. So I have a lot of work to do, but I'm excited to learn!

Here are my exercises for rhythm and smooth corners. Switching to smooth corners, and especially the closed shapes was trickier than I expected. Especially trying to get a consistent curve each time. They are far from perfect so I will keep practicing, but now I'm going to move onto the next lessons.

Here is my short text in unjoined lowercase before I move on to cursive. When writing full words, so far spacing and width of the letters is the biggest challenge. But it's definitely getting better the more I practice and the slower I go.
