ITT post handwriting
My handwriting tends to come out as a sloppy mix of print and cursive, basically whatever lets me write the quickest.
>>2379222 not messy, i actually like it.
Sadly that is my normal handwriting when I'm doing freehand... like sketching stuffs. Pic related was done 3 years back but it was back then when I can actually concentrate.
We also got taught Textura but i don't think i could pull that one off.
I missed a lot of school as a kid and didnt learn some cursivecaps. my teacher got mad at me when i asked her to show them to me, saying i shouldnt have skipped so much school. i was like 8 and got sick a lot.
My dog died last year.
I already did a portrait of him last year, so I'm thinking about doing a cool knight warrior dog illustration this time
fun fact: i have to write in all caps to be legible to my own goddamn self.
i wish there was more actual neuroscience interest in handwriting as opposed to all the shitty pseudoscience. it taps into some other part of the brain, that's for sure. i've always had shitty, inconsistent handwriting, in english + chinese, but when i do chinese calligraphy, which is pretty much brushwork, i do fine.
meanwhile, my sister has incredibly neat, consistent handwriting in english + chinese, but doesn't draw and has meh calligraphy.
on the plus side, my signature is really hard to forge. cuz if it looks anything like my previously written signatures, it's a fake.
I love you Rover!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My handwriting looks schizophrenic in little letter
Top is "fancy" writing
Bottom is normal everyday writing
I am very indecisive about my handwriting. I don't know if I like it or not.
I kinda want to change my handwriting, I write really small and compact generally (unless I have a fucking biro in hand in which case my handwriting is illegible)
Compact can be handy!
I'm also studying medicine.
Yeah, it was not my happiest day at school. I'm struggling to keep up my art and creativity time, how a bout you?
Here, have a failed attempt at a complete cell cycle chart with my "official" handwriting, so that people can read it. Swedes generally have trouble with handwritten and loose letters so I sometimes change it for my friends sake.
hgggghhhhh cell biology is awwwwful, your handwriting is still super neat though, which is cool. I'm the kind of asshole who learns best by writing things out over and over again so I rarely draw diagrams to understand things. As for art and creativity, I've started making a weekly schedule sort of thing to account for studying + practising drawing. It's split up something like ~8 hours studying throughout the week, ~3 hours anatomy and 3/4 hours drawing practice with at least one finished drawing, regardless of quality, every week. It makes life easier and kinda makes you feel like you can actually accomplish a lot in a week
Like, 8 hours every day or 8 hours spread out over an entire week?
I learn best by not attending lectures so I mostly sit at home and learn, but somehow never manage to get a consistent drawing scheme. I'm happy skipping class works since I need to commute to my uni. It's 1 h 10 min away by train. I'm only doing my second year and after the theoretical courses it's time for clinicals. By then I'll get shuffled to my local hospital where I'll attend from 8AM-4PM mon-thursday. I'll need a good scheme and a lot of energy to keep going with both drawing and medicine. I really hope I'll make it, and you too anon!
8 hours spread out over the week, here's a link if you want to have a look without derailing the rest of the thread more than we kinda already have http://imgur.com/gKYs9TO
(Also, anon, I know how you feel about lectures, I used to do it loads too but that shit catches up to you at the worst possible time so try and force yourself to go)
>Studying japanese on free time
Brother from another mother. Seriously? Though statistically, I can see why it's probable we share the same interests. I wish you were in my class.
Ayyyy I'm good at picking up languages and figured it's about time to indulge my inner weeb, you seem cool anon, I wish you the best of luck with drawing, medicine and learning nip (I would share contact deets but hey this is 4chan)
Heh, I understand. Same for me, I know four languages fluently and need to indulge my inner weeb. I'd love to go do some medical research in nipland in the future.
I guess you'll stick around here too, somehow I'm sure we'll catch up. Good luck!
shit now I'm curious, what research in particular? I'm thinking of applying to work with stem cells in the RIKEN institute when I graduate, hence trying to get a leg up on nipponese first (also because muh chinese cartoons)
WTF? I've been interested in stem cell tissue engineering since I was a kid. So far I have not been able to find a suitable research group at my uni (they mostly deal with diabetes and general pancreas faggotry (sorry all pancreases in the world, I didn't mean it like that youre important but a bit boring)), so I'll have to either look at other uni in Stockholm or abroad.
I'm a bit paranoid on the intrewebz but how can I recognize you here on /ic/?
shiiiit are you me swedish anon? Currently studying at a Uni in the UK that's got a brilliant Stem Cell research centre, so fingers crossed atm. Shit I'm not sure, I'll come back to you if I come up with something swedebro, unless you've got any ideas?
I can sign my future uploads of the stuff I practice here at /ic/, maybe we can recognize eachother's handwriting? If you hang around here much I'll just try to catch you, but I can't pull an awesome idea right now. I'll just keep hanging around in this thread and hope it lives until I come up with something.
grieve with me brother
I swear to god, I didn't even rush it. My handwriting is like this normally.
I think my real calling was a doctor.
Speaking of which, besides "practice" does anyone have tips for training better handwriting? I've been shit at it my whole life, partially because whenever I handwrite I'm rushing it but sometimes I think like I might actually be retarded.
My handwriting is just plain awful. In English and Vietnamese.
Wow I'm a blind motherfucker. Mistook that thumbnail for this.
Writing in reverse can force you to think about the shapes of the letters--pic related.
Here ya go OP.
I know most people think cursive is archaic and super gay, but I can't help feel that it's too influential in human history to lose. It makes my notes more interesting to read as well. I think it's been helping me with my drawing as well.
cursive this, cursive that, but are you an asshat enough to use a fountain pen?
>tfw you've already forgotten how to write cursive (well) despite still writing in it only a few years ago
It just looks like my normal handwriting which is a constantly varying abomination between cursive and print.
I think stylistically it reflects technical drawing of the few hundred years before CAD became common. It's associated with technical trades. Architects, designers, machinists, engineers, who likely began writing that way for title blocks, callouts, dimensions, etc. And as cursive fell out of common use when people started writing very little, caps became sort of the practical default for ease of legibility.
Capital letters also now carry a huge weight in text communication. We rely on them to convey emotions and level of formality, to separate jokes from insults. Maybe people handwrite in all capitals to avoid giving unwanted messages, a neutral format.
All that said, I see adults here in the US write in all lowercase just as much as all capital letters. I know German uses capital letters to more effect than English, maybe other languages do too. This allows for faster reading as does capitals at the beginning of sentences. Though non-greek (Korean, Chinese, Arabic, etc), based languages don't even have capital letters as far as I know, as evidence of their lack of necessity.
That's all the crap I can come up with... interesting to ruminate on-
My mom's and sister's is way better than mine.
I remember seeing a handwritings post on /lit/ once, it singlehandedly made me try to write cursive again.
Literally the best I can do.
I hope to one day find that I have some genetic cerebellar disorder or perhaps a degenerative disease to explain my awful handwriting because I don't know how else it's possible to not improve handwriting at all over almost thirty years of life.
>I know German uses capital letters to more effect than English
True. Our grammar is a bit more distinct in that department. I never actually thought about how that improved legibility.
It would be completely unacceptable to write in caps only though. (First, most people would think you're kinda retarded, like someone using too much question- and exclamation marks and secondly, many people would probably feel like they're being screamed at)
