Now Japanese calligraphy(Shodo) is classed in "Six field"

One or two of the them is procedure of Chinese traditional old calligraphy.
Four or five rest of field is very enjoyable art born in only Japan.

The Japanese shodo was concluded as commercial design and art after World War II.
It isn't simple copying that seems to be copying of a picture art.

But some people are writing on You-Tube is the same as
"a primary schoolchild doing it"
It is called only "Oshuji" in Japan.
It isn't classed in Shodo having commercial value.

Furthermore practice called Rinsho is "copying"of classic work.
This doesn't have commercial value in Japan at all, too.
Anybody don't pay money for these(Oshuji and Rinsho) in Japan.

In other words commercial value is added only when there is artistic factor.
A Japanese likes calligraphy used business.
Therefore it is always demanded art nature in Japanese Shodo.

Calligraphy as design is used in the next field.

Design of a brand name and logotype mark
Title character of Film or comics
Signboard of a shop
A personal request

However, even now a lot of Japanese people are learning Chinese classic calligraphy as a textbook.

Therefor if you want to write a "very beautiful character thoroughly", please learn Chinese traditional calligraphy.
It is complete system as a method writing a beautiful character.

The Japanese calligraphy changed as chaotic art by mixing ugliness and distorsion in the beauty.
Japanese calligraphy is resembling the Impressionist or an abstract art when I compare Chinese calligraphy to realism group.

Calligraphy such as a picture of the Impressionists (Impressionnisme)seems to be next.

For example,
draw a character of rain like rain.
Design a character of snow like snow.
Draw a character of thunder like thunder with power.

These are business-calligraphy and art-calligraphy in Japan.
Factor of Wabi or Sabi peculiar to a Japanese becomes necessary too.
