If cursive handwriting is coming back in style, then calligraphy is going to be really hot, right? Well, maybe not. However, Topdune Studio has released Calligraphy Penmanship 1.5, which at least makes calligraphy fun for those of us with an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil! The updated app brings two new pen effects to the Pro.
The Highway pen effect is a colored line escorted by two thin lines of matching color. The Candy pen effect consists on drawing simultaneously three perfectly adjacent colored lines, the dominant color will progressively coming to front when changing the stroke direction. Just like a stick of twisted candy. By changing the pen rotation, the same head will produce surprising color effects.
OK, that Candy Pen Effect sounds like a really cool one to learn for the holiday season!
Features of the app include:
- Learning: you can evaluation your progress with stroke by stroke exercises. Try your best to trace the models and hit the high scores. This is the best way to understand the anatomy of each letter. and each decorative curve.
