New Fraktur addict needs guidance
« on: November 03, 2023, 07:37:10 PM »
Hello,

So, I took Filip Cislak's class on Fraktur this month, for a fresh perspective on calligraphy (I do mostly Italics and French Roundhand).
This is my homework for the last session. I started off not knowing the script at all and joined 2 weeks late, so I'm pleasantly surprised I got this far.

I am also surprised at how much I enjoy it. It is such a playful script, with endless variations!

But now the class is finished, I'm on my own! I would love some critique and/or guidance in order to improve, if you feel like it :) . In any case, I will be posting my progress regularly, because I enjoy when other people do this!


Done with Pilot parallel pen 3mm on cellulose paper.


I also own a copy of Stellahism's minuscule Fraktur worksheets, which are very helpful.
