A smaller nib is so much harder
« on: April 03, 2023, 11:48:42 AM »
I'm used to using a 2mm nib and decided today to give a shot to a 1mm nib since some came in an order which I hadn't actually asked for but it seemed a shame to shove them in a drawer without at least giving it a go.  This is my first attempt with my current practice letters.  Advice and critique would be very helpful here because this feels VERY difficult.

Well done! It is harder to scale down in size. But with a little practice, you will become used to it! Youíre doing well. The only suggestion I have is that it feels a bit cramped. Needs to air out a bit in between the letters.  :)

Adding space.  Alright, still working on that.  The examples other people have given in different threads do seem much more airy and beautiful with extra room.
