2. Curve and up

When you are confident enough to draw line from top to bottom, next is going back with the curve at the bottom.

完全に細くなってからガイドの下の線上で U ターンです。

ここで、右に斜めに上がるのは禁止。ほぼ Uターンを目指します。


What you want is gradually thinning smooth line, not a bumpy one. Make U-turn with completely zero pressure. DO NOT go up diagonally towards right. You cannot apply any pressure when you go up so this is the thin line.


This is your bottom curve.  これが下のカーブです。


Next is going up from bottom to top.  次は下から上に書く線です。

This needs to be very think, most delicate lines as much as possible.

From the base line of your guide to the top line,

move your pen with ZERO pressure.

Only with the feeling that pen and paper are just touching each other.

If you are right handed, it is okay to have natural curve in lines.


When you hit the top line, add the pressure.

Start your down stroke with pressure from the start, and end with the bottom curve.

Make a beautiful and obvious contrast between thin line from bottom to top,

and the line going down with pressure. Smooth curve at the bottom.

これで上に点つければ i です!

i と同じ動きで書ける小文字を次で説明します。

This makes lower case i, when you add a dot on top.

Will have a look at other lower cases with (almost) same movement.


You can see those movement video on

my Instagram post.
