whaddya think, i really like how animalistic and mythological the script looks and i think it would look great (albeit written out with a bit more regularity)

Well I think it might be dutch.......not german. Looks cool though.

 

You are correct. That's definitely Dutch. Interesting handwriting.

Your life is the result of the choices you make. If you don’t like your life, it’s time to start making better choices.

Looks like a mixture of Latin and german cursive characters.

The writing looks similar to records I index for familysearch.org dating from 16th and 17th century England parishes. This website has some great examples and helps explain the letter forms. It is tricky to read, but most of the time not impossible.

It's secretary hand, I think. There are guides out there for learning to read it which could be used to learn to produce it, too.

This is old Dutch. From before the regularization of spelling at the beginning of the 20th century. It is still readable and understandable.

It does look like secretary hand. I could stare at secretary hand documents for ages. They look cryptic and the slope is rather haywire compared to the hands we are used to seeing now... although upon careful inspection, the letters see to be formed consistently. Sometimes not all the rules of flourishing are observed... interesting stuff.
