If you’ve been practicing your brush lettering, you might be starting to think of ways to get creative and add variety to your style. I have a list of ten examples here to get you started on some ideas.
This is your typical style with consistent use of thicks and thins within the letter forms and keeping a consistent baseline with the words.
Here we start to play with the baseline a bit to exaggerate those curves and get a playful feel to the letters.
Go at an angle with all your letters. You can use this with a consistent baseline or with a bouncy baseline.
Go tall and narrow with this style. Exaggerate the height of your letters and bring them closer together.
Thicker and shorter is the name of the game here.
Flourishes are not my strong suit, but they can add an extra swirly touch.
Set the letters relatively farther apart from each other than you usually would.
Keep your brush pressure steady to try to make all the lines thin in your letters.
Same idea as the delicate monoline, but we’re also adding a bouncy baseline.
This one’s not a script at all and takes some practice to form totally different letter shapes.
Experiment with all the styles and mix them up to see which ones you enjoy the most. Participating in a lettering challenge will give you plenty of excuses to try them all out. Check out the monthly Brush Letter Practice Challenge here.
