Italic lowercase letters "r" - Kalligraphie Diskussionen

With kind regards, Out of your interest, how do you write your italic lower case letters "r"? It is possible to make more than one answer because I am conscious that some people use more than one type of character "r", according to its location in a particular key. Usually more like picture 1, but sometimes it's somewhere between 1 and 2.

I would only use 3 if I write a uppercase letters. Concerning the second sign in the picture of the OR, I would like to speak to the individual or persons who have chosen to write an italic lowercase'r' this way. I do not try to insult anyone, but every single times I see someone write an "r" like that I shrink back and can't help but think that they need to be shown what an "r" really looks like...

In elementary education (led by Roman Catholics when it mattered) I had learned to write my little "r" as in Figure 2, but I was never satisfied with the results of my work. Finally, at a very young age I decided to switch to the "r" shown in Figure 1.

Somehow it felt "better" to write it that way, and I remain here to this day. I could never comprehend how the shape of the letters in picture 2 could show the letters "r", because they did not correspond to the print version of this one.

I' ve read somewhere on the web that a newer trend, in many parts of the US, France and some other Europeans, is to capitalise the letters (i.e. as R) throughout the text. I could never comprehend how the shape of the letters in picture 2 could show the letters "r", because they did not correspond to the print version of this one.

The R was only used in the ligature, but in recent years they searched for a quick incursive and reintroduced this letter form and gave it a totally unhistoric touch so that they could use it in their fonts. Greetings, flag: At primary and secondary I was shown the lower case r as in example 2, but when I adopted the italics, I went to example 1.

The number 3 is only an uppercase character, although I can usually blossom a little. No offence, but I think I could never write an r like gavain3. I could never comprehend how the shape of the letters in picture 2 could show the letters "r", because they did not correspond to the print version of this one.

Later, the angular point between the top round line and the oblique line is curved for speed. The R was only used in the ligature, but in recent years they searched for a quick italic and reintroduced this letter form and gave it a totally unhistoric touch so that they could use it in their fonts.

Flags: 1 - it's almost the same as the one from gavain3 (when I try to write properly). Who are you talking about? I also write the "r" with a bow (when I write it that way, I usually write it as in picture 1).

If you write quickly, the "r" without a bow looks slightly like an "n", but with the bow (which is more like the point that returns on a slightly different way than a actually perfectionist bow; in my opinion) the shape of the letter becomes more distinct and readable - just as you have seen it.

Greetings, flag: It's probably just me, but I like that Gawain3 used'wire' as an example of an italic'r' when the shape of the letters looks exactly like I shape an italic'n', so the words are'wine'. RÂș 2 in italics (90% of the time). There is another variation that looks like a "z" and then one that looks like a 2 I saw it in the script, but I can't find a fast picture except in the script:
