The same glyph done with curves whose handles extend  at 45° and 90° angles; and  the way that felt good at the time.
I'm new to digital type design. The above is in Illustrator. Could I get the advice of somebody with a lot of bezier curve experience on what works best for them? I'm open to even the most upbraiding comments, including 'Don't do it in Illustrator'. (Maybe you could do even better.) I took some time to create outlines of some famous type and look at it, but it seemed so full of anchor points.
