Formal Italic Capitals - The Rest of the Story
Well, I promised I'd get this posted yesterday, but I got sidetracked on my Z!
Again, this exemplar is just the bare bones of the letterforms. You can fancy them up, if you like. There's lots of ways to make them. In the Speedball Textbook alone there are 3 different styles, starting at the bare minimum to more elaborate.
You have to start somewhere, and it's always best to start at the beginning. Then you can travel down the unknown path and embellish or flourish as you see fit. Make lettering your own. It's a journey well worth starting and well worth venturing out on your own.
Come take that journey with me!
