Mine looks rather zany, but then again any doodlers worth their salt are usually supposed to have terrible handwriting. Still, I like to think it's legible.
I always capitalize when it's the beginning of a sentence or if it's the beginning of a name or other such thing that necessitates it, but for the remainder of the given word, letters i.e. that are supposed to be lower case, I always put down the version of the letter that's more efficient.

IN otheR woRds, I teNd to wRite things a Bit oddly, But it usually woRKs out aNd people caN Read it oKay. SoMetimes, though, I've Noticed that foR the letter M, if it's at the beginning of a woRd, I will OCCASIONALLY wRite it as "m" but if it's at any otheR point in the woRd it'll be written as "M."

LetteRs that I always capitalize iN my handwRitiNg aRe the letteRs R and N, but theRe aRe soMe letteRs that I'll capitalize most of the tiMe but Maybe I'll wRite them loweR-case sometiMes. Those letteRs are D aND M. WhetheR I capitalize D hinges a lot on whetheR the pRevious letteR's last stRoke leaves off up at the top oR the bottom. FoR exaMple I could wRite "could" oR "MoRdoR" aND have a "d" iNstead of a "D" but I couldN't wRite "eNDiNg" without oNe-- I dRaw my I's aND loweR-case L's iN DownwaRD stRoKes, aND a lot of my otheR letteRs eND up at the top. So, if immediately following soMething like my i's, l's, e's, y's, u's, j's, a's, coMMas (iN Most cases aNyway), etc., I will Not capitalize My k's, d's, etc.

yet, foR soMe ReasoN, I will NeveR capitalize my y's ((that Reason beiNg 'because it's a paiN iN the ass to wRite it as capital,' of couRse)). Not ever for proper teRms like 'The yeti,' SoNic youth, yo yo Ma, "yabba Dabba Doo," aND otheR such phRases/NaMes. HoweveR, if I WERE to wRite ceRtaiN capital letteRs, specifically the otheRwise NeveR-capitalized y, it caN potentially lead to Not wRitiNg a capital M, but this theoRy Needs fuRtheR testiNg befoRe I caN tRuly say which of the capitals they aRe. (((eDit: I also NeveR capitalize my e's eitheR, eveR, eveN wheN wRitiNg all-caps, uNless it's at the begiNNiNg of the woRD.)))

(By the way, despite their capital shape, they're all still the same size as the other lower-case letters, just written like capitals, and the thing is, my letters all come in varying shapes and sizes at all times, it's just that when I'm writing capital letters or doing a sort of handwritten caps-lock for emphasis I'm doing it consciously. Sometimes my supposed lower-case letters are literally the same size as the intended capital letters.)

But yeah. How about you guys, how would you describe your handwriting? This goes for you members just now joining too, so feel free to leave a post if you feel like! Pictures are welcome as well, in case you feel you can't really do it justice, or something to that effect.
Yeah, this is a rather weird and oddly personal question, but since I found the idea of my own handwriting having its own "rule set" to be rather interesting, and everyone's handwriting is supposed to be at least a little unique, I thought that perhaps my fellow WAAcolytes' were interesting to ponder as well.

Another means of emphasis, which I use in lieu of italics, is my calligraphy/cursive writing, which is not only consistent, both in size and whether a letter is upper/lower case, but also really fuckin' good? according to anyone who looked at it? Like, it's not anywhere close to being as borderline flawless as it was when I still had to do it, but I remember when I was seven years old (that was apparently the last year that cursive writing was mandatory for students to learn-- I'm part of the last batch of us), during a phone call with someone my mom looked at this cursive class assignment wherein I needed to do so without a guide, and bragged over the phone about the shape like "it looks really good I dunno why he doesn't write like that all the time" (the answer being that it took much more energy to produce these same results back then because I was still in the process of losing the 'idiot baby hands--' I also got writer's cramp much faster. Anyway, my calligraphy, while not as good as it was a decade back, will still look really pretty if I put care into it.

((Yeah, yeah, I'm bragging, whatever, but I'm-a like Wario, I got a bit of an inferiority complex ("buy me a castle bigger than Mario's!"), I gotta be proud of what I can.))

Well I did a drawing of me planning to wear a Wario costume for Halloween and I wrote down all the pieces that go with it in my own handwriting, so I guess that counts. I had to darken it a bit so you could see the writing, but, yeah.

(The reason why I'm wearing shorts instead of traditional overalls is because it's so dang hot where I live. Even around Halloween.)

I wonder what Wario's handwriting is like?

I bet Waluigi's is flawless.
I like to think that the typeface from WarioWare inc. is supposed to be a pixellated version of Wario's handwriting, like the versions of Papyrus and Comic Sans that were created for Undertale.

Same here, only mine's gotten a good amount smaller over the years (if we're talking print anyway).

Ah, cool! I made this thread a year ago on my favourite forum, and I suppose I can copy the images from there to show you, as it hasn't changed since. :P ... Woah, it turns out it was posted in December of 2015. I seriously thought it was last year. :o




So yeah: this is old, but I still write in the same way. :)

Rather messy. Like this:

This is a concept of a fanfic I wrote. This wasn't meant to be read by anyone other than me in this form, so that's why I scribbled it down with an old pen in a little notebook. I'm constantly trying to improve my handwriting, but as of now, I haven't had much success.

@607 You phi's are cute! But they should be like this:

I think your handwriting is rather pretty! What's the fanfic about?

Nice! :WLThumbsUp: You have the type of handwriting many people envy.

Thanks. It's gotten better indeed, but not that much. I still have a long way to go.

The fanfic is about the original Luigi's Mansion. It's a sequel to a fanfic I wrote earlier.
Here you can read the final result of the concept: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13017769/1/Moving-Melodies
I'm working on another part to complete the trilogy, but I don't have much inspiration as of now.

somewhat legible but some of my letters tend to look like other ones (like lowercase a and u) and I had a tendency to capitalize Ws and Ss when I shouldn't.
