Got 2 minutes? See what you can do with Kung Fu Brush. Learn, create, or simply enjoy the art of Chinese calligraphy. Everything in this video was created with just a few strokes, and re-enacted with the built-in hand animation, similar to the explainer's video. We soft-launched this app on August 30, 2016 in Los Angeles. It's great for all levels of Chinese learners, especially the beginners. It teaches you the ideogram, the stroke sequence, and to inspire you to learn more. Are you ready?
Ready for your first Chinese ideogram? Although this lesson assumes you do write Chinese, we will provide you practice ideograms in both English and Chinese in coming months. We will do so 100 at a time, until all (or most) Chinese ideograms are created. You can download them easily from our cloud server. In the meantime, we'll be happy to send you a list. Just email us with a headline "100 Chinese Ideograms please."
One of the hottest things when learning Chinese is to create your first seal. Create a digital seal with your name in Chinese. How cool is that? This 2-minute lesson teaches you the basics. For a limited time, we will make a seal for you using this app. No purchase is necessary. Just email us with a headline "My Name in Chinese Seal" and provide us with your full name, and gender (we can figure it out 99.999% but just to be sure).
Want to appreciate the calligraphy, the music, and the recital of poetry, all in one simple lesson? Watch the butterfly come alive upon the completion of the ideogram, along with the music of Guzheng, equivalent to the modern harp. This lesson can be created in less than 2 minutes and everything you need is included in this app. But let's NOT talk about creation yet. Let's just indulge ourselves in the beauty and elegance of calligraphy art.
This video teaches you how to write "home" in Chinese, with some embellishments of seal script. Then it shows you how to edit any existing work by simply tapping at the triangular edit button from the category menu. You can do just about everything with this edit screen. But this video shows you how to change the hand animation from the default hand to the hand that is holding an Apple Pencil. You can do that quick change in less than 3 seconds. By the way, you do know that you can make movie of any work you have done, with many special effects, right? Try it for yourselves.
Here is a preview of shodō brush. It will be available free in our next update. In fact, we can send it to you now if you contact us via our contact form. There is no change to your current app, just a new digital brush being sent to you. Please be patient, as it is the essence of calligraphy. We will gradually perfect the brush. You will ultimately be rewarded with a brush that bears your name that no one can ever copy.
