Actually this is pretty cool, when Japanese kids learn the Roman alphabet, they learn it with rigid rules for stroke order.
@JordiGH I think I’m at less than 50% for those matching how I do it! Makes me wonder how everyone else does it.
@JordiGH now I'm not sure whether I just do letters wrong or the whether the stroke order has been influenced by how Japanese letters are written...
@JordiGH Yeah... When I receive new students from alphabet using countries, I often have to tell them to stop using cursive in forms, because most people will have a really hard time with it, or even not understand it at all.
Nah, you can't really tell stroke order with a ball pen.
But some people WILL get confused by small variations, such as whether you cross a sever or not, whether your one has a base, or whether you write a four by looping it around, or by drawing an upside down chair.
@JordiGH Elementary school is really strict on kids using the right stroke order for Japanese characters (and I do agree that using the right stroke order can help drawing them with the right balance), so that's how they teach them to draw everything.
I think if you look at native calligraphy books, you WILL find stroke orders too.
Of course, even some Japanese forget the stroke order of more complex/unused kanji as time goes by.
@JordiGH did you happen to have a picture for the lower case letters (currently only partially seen in your picture) as well?
@tpfto Not for this particular image, no, but if you look online, you can find other examples.
