Practice your Lettering with 101 brush strokes printable worksheets.


Hey guys, welcome to the 101 brush
strokes, as you guessed it, it’s full of brush lettering worksheets. Starting from
the basic strokes, curves and loops to uppercase and lowercase letters. But
let’s not stop there, there are also numbers and some words at the end to help you with those letter connections. Okay, so here’s how you’re
gonna use these. Follow the arrows, the circle is the starting point and arrow
head as the direction in which you’re going. Right here I am using a Tumbow
brush marker so I’m using very little pressure on my up strokes, and for the
down strokes you want to hold it at a little bit more of an angle not straight
up and down and then a little bit more pressure to create that nice thick line.
And don’t be afraid to use a little bit more pressure. The same goes for your
Crayola markers, very little pressure and more of the tip for the up strokes to
create thin lines and then lay it on its side a little bit more and use a lot
more pressure because these aren’t as flexible so you have to be more on the
side of the marker to create that thicker line, even when doing curves like
right here, you have to train your hand to kind of rotate the marker on its side
when you’re trying to create those thick lines and my favorite tool of all and
the tool I use to create these worksheets is the Pentel water brush.
You can use all of the three sizes. The big one is awesome and it might create a
little bit thicker lines than the ones on the sheets but that’s okay you can
also use the medium one which will bring you the closest to the worksheets
because that’s the one I use to create them. The little one is just amazing and
it’s tiny and very controllable because it’s got such a nice fine small tip. You
can also use other watercolor brushes with pre-filled ink and as well as some real brushes, preferably
a round brush works best, you can fill it with watercolor or ink so you can
practice your lettering right on the printout but if you don’t want to keep
wasting paper printing out sheets if you want to do multiple tools more multiple
colors you can use a light pad just lay your sheet on the light pad turn it on
and then place your other sheet of paper on top that way you can see right
through it and just do your lettering on top and
then switch out your sheets without wasting that precious printout. Another
great thing to use is marker paper, especially if you’re using tombow
markers because they are very very sensitive to paper, if you use a rough
paper it will ruin your tip a lot quicker, so marker paper is probably the
best to use for that and it’s already a little bit see-through it’s not very
thick so you can most likely just lay it right on top of your printout and still
be able to see through it and do your lettering on. Another option is to use
tracing paper which is even more see-through and you’re gonna be able to
see a lot more of your letters and just do your lettering on there. Another option is to use a Rhodia pad, a
lot of lettering artists use this because it’s got that dot grid on there
and you can use it to make your letters all the same size your strokes the same
size because you can follow with a grid. Alright guys so go to my shop grab those
