Hand Lettering Series - Part 3-2 - Lower Case 2 of 2

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

I'm finally back with the second half of the Lower Case Lettering portion of my Hand Lettering Series. I want to thank all of you who have been very patient with me in getting these videos out spaced so far apart. I know you can always go to someone else to find this information, but I am so thankful that many of you just enjoy my delivery of the information, and are still amped for my Brush Lettering Video Tutorials. It has been a few (a ton of) minutes since the first half of the lower case letters, so here's Lower Case 1 of 2 - Ascenders & Descenders as a quick refresher if you need. Then let's move on to Part 2...

If you're new here on the blog and you're looking to start this Brush Lettering Series from the beginning, check out this post Hand Lettering Part 1 - Basic Strokes here, and Hand Lettering Part 2 - Terminology & Basic Caps here. If you want more, I've also got a Faux Calligraphy tutorial as well, and this post is really the perfect place to start if you're new to hand lettering, or are just looking for an easy way to make some pretty looking lettering without all the pens and/or brushes.

Now, let's get into the video, and you can read below to find recommended tools and materials for your hand lettering journey! Looking for the printable worksheets mentioned in the video? You'll find those here on this page just below the video frame.


Click the link provided below to get the second part of the lower case lettering worksheets. You can find the first half of the lowercase letters worksheets in Part 1 linked earlier this post. When downloading the worksheets you will be brought to a screen that has a list of all the files (worksheets) in the folder - just click the download icon (looks like an arrow pointing down to a horizontal line) in the upper right corner of the screen. If you get an error that reads "Whoops! There was a problem with the preview." you'll still see a download icon directly below that message, click on that! I believe you will also have the option to print the sheet directly from that screen (printer icon to left of download icon) if you'd rather not download it at all and just print it instead.

WORKSHEETS for Lower Case Alphabet (Part 2) - X-height Letters

If you have an issues downloading or printing the worksheets, let me know by leaving a comment on this post. I'll fix it as quickly as I can!



Some of these tools in this list I use in this video, some I may use in future videos in this series, and some I recommend as additional options you may like for practicing your lettering, but all are tools that I do like, and are great for beginners and as you get better and better as well. You definitely don't have to buy all of them and I've listed similar tools of different brands and prices for you to decide what you feel you'd like best. You will need at least one type of brush pen, one type of paper, and if you use water brushes rather than markers, you'll need to choose between inks or watercolours for your pigment. Obviously you can try as many tools as you like to find what you prefer; you may like something different than I do.
