Major Noob Question here but I want to create a 2d shape that seems to draw itself like in this video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLNmtk67unY

I saw in KaptainKrisitan's videos and wanted to replicate in blender, but I don't have a clue how.

Here is a simple way to make a drawing... draw itself:

draw a curve as your handwritten shape, or use Grease Pencil to draw your word, and then convert the drawing to a curve. See here:

enter image description here

Then you have (at least) two ways:

  1. Use a mesh to create the writing depth, through arrays (fit length) and other modifiers: curve follow, subsurf. Then animating the "fit length" array parameter you can make it draw itself...

Here's how:

enter image description here

  1. Use another (curve) shape as bevel object for the first curve. Then animating the bevel "end factor" you can make it draw itself...

Like this:

enter image description here

This becomes a 3D writing because the bevel object is a 2D curve circle, but you can also get a 2D animated writing using a 1D curve as bevel object, like this:
