Every time I write 尽 I feel very unsatisfied. Today's example:

Something about it feel odd or wrong, and I don't know what. I feel it's ugly.

Question: Why does my handwritten 尽 look so ugly?

  • Let me guess. You are a mathematician? I see a quadrilateral :) – Wayne Cheah Feb 14 '20 at 5:08
  • At a glance, your proportions are off. The box should be twice as long as it is tall (your box isn't far from a square), the right-most arc shouldn't be so far right that it damn-near lines up with the box. These are just my thoughts when comparing your handwriting to the computer text, though admittedly that depends on your font. I believe I'm viewing "尽" with the Google Noto Sans CJK font – 小奥利奥 Feb 14 '20 at 10:27
  • In addition to what the others have said, it would help to slant the horizontal stroke parts a few degrees counter-clockwise. – gnucchi Feb 23 '20 at 10:31

1、 is too long.Not out on the left side of the 丿
2、 is too heavy.It should be from heavy to light and sharp at the end
3、The second is also too long.It should be shorter.It corresponds to the first 丶
