Stroke by Stroke Practice: Cheng
the left is a character I wrote called cheng. It is a versatile
character that can mean many things when combined with another character.
For example, it can mean to become, to succeed, to mature, etc.
-- or can add those meanings to the word it is combined with. For example,
when combined with the character for person, ren, it means adult.
It is also a character in Jackie Chan's Chinese name, Cheng Long, which
means to become a dragon. I wrote it using the standard or standing style. The standing style uses straight and distinct lines
that produce relatively square or box-like characters. In all calligraphy,
there is a prescribed order of writing the strokes, generally, from left
to right and from up to down (though the character order is top to bottom
and right to left). Below, you can see how I wrote cheng stroke-by-stroke.
