The letters b, f, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, p, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, and z all begin with the downward stroke. Slowly make your way through the rest of the curved stroke lowercase letters, using the guide of the strokes as reference. Now that you've written each letter multiple times, it's time to put it all together and write out the lowercase alphabet. The uppercase alphabet always plays by different rules and is generally much more elaborate. Since most of the letters begin with a curved stroke, I didn't divide the alphabet into groups.
Slowly make your way through the rest of the uppercase letters, using the guide of the strokes as reference. Now that you've written each letter multiple times, it's time to put it all together and write out the alphabet. This style of calligraphy is the one most often used for wedding invitations and party announcements. Some have strokes that fill up the entire height of the line and others only reach to the dashed line. Once you have the 'o' down, it's easy to see how the other downward curve letters are made.
The curved strokes are much bigger and the upward strokes have more curls and slant to them.


Instead, we'll simply work our way through it, using the guide above to see how many strokes each letter is made of and what direction the strokes go. Like I said before, when it comes to uppercase letters, the more flourish, the better so don't be scared to make some big curls and sweeping lines. Most people use Cursive Script for invitations so let's write out some celebratory phrases. In this lesson on mastering calligraphy, we're going to learn a very familiar alphabet called Cursive Script. The blue arrows above show the directions of the pen strokes and the numbers below tell you how many strokes make up each letter. Once you have the 'l' down, it's easy to see how other uppercase letters like the c, e, g, o, and q are made. Make a downward stroke to the bottom line, arcing slightly to the left and ending in a fancy curl. I hope that you've discovered it's actually quite a simple font to write, despite looking very fancy.
Flowing, cursive lettering is still seen today on wedding invitations and menus at fancy restaurants.
To start, I'm going to show you the direction of each stroke plus how many stokes make up each letter. Curl to the left and make an upward, diagonal stroke that goes a bit above the bottom line.


Arc down and around to the right, coming up to the top line and making something like a bad 'o' shape.
The more you practice, the easier it will be to ink the letters and the faster you'll be at writing. We're going to start with the lowercase alphabet and break it up into two sections: upward stroke letters and curve stroke letters. When you're writing out the letters yourself, you can sketch them out using your pencil first. Now arc up to the dash line and make a downward stroke back down to the bottom line, curling up at the end. Now make another curved stroke out to the right and down to the bottom line, again ending in a fancy curl.
