I've got a bit of a complex about my handwriting. I can draw well, I can emulate nice writing well, but my natural handwriting is very bad and I got a lot of crap for it at school. I normally write in capitalised print, so I don't even see my own cursive handwriting much - but I just now I had to jot down some thoughts and (considering my ever-increasing interest in scripts) managed for the first time to find some beauty in the shittiness of my handwriting.
This was the word ('was') that prompted me to take photos. I really like how it looks out of context.
What I'm really wondering is if I can use this in my art somehow. I like how this word ('rather') is on the line very well, but form-wise is kind of mountain shaped. I like that line that connects the a and h, with the t proppped up between them. Also enjoying that the comma is at a near-perfect 90º.
if you're wondering if I never cross my t's, sometimes I cross the HELL outta them.
finally, a larger sectin showing my handwriting in general. As you see, it can be legible, but my main problem is that I have zero consistency - which is unfortunately something that I carry over to my neater capitalised print writing (eg: I sometimes write an E straight, sometimes more like a backwards 3.)
Either way, I think the variation in the loops/lack of loops (of the y's, g's etc.) looks pretty fun here
@sajan holy shit I legit got tripped for a second and thought the last letter was the letter Z in arabic
So I tried to read the rest and got so confused omg
@guiltykiss Ahah! I'm actually glad to hear that - I mean arabic is visually one of, if not my favourite, kind of script (to look at, I can't actually read anything other than English unfortunately)
The fact that this one looks kinda like arabic is likely why it appeared to me so much!
