@SMK Thank you so much for your encouragement and feedback, Salman.
I have attached the individual words.

Your lettering looks great! Seeing this kinda makes me want to break out some broad edged nibs.

@SMK  The 'w' words were a bit of a struggle. They are a little less consistent, especially with the exit strokes (too wide at times), and the bottom turns.

@SMK
Hi Salman, here's the first set of words ( I am missing the w, will post tomorrow). Am I possibly holding my pen wrong or need to make a flange adjustment? I can "square off" but it's rarely horizontal, and since I'm trying to keep my pen angle parallel to the slant lines, I feel I can't do both simultaneously. You had mentioned to make a '7' at the tops; is that to touch up after each letter?
Thank you!! This has helped my writing tremendously with just this first group.

I thought it would be fun to incorporate some calligraphy. These were created for a lettering challenge on IG. You know, lime green is kinda hard to capture in mediocre lighting.

This is really cool :D  Thank you for sharing and look forward to seeing your progress! I didn't know they had books out. I'm going to take a look into it.

@SMK Here's a second go around on individual letters for this group.
I think my down stroke taper is a little better with these, along with the slant. Down stroke shading is still a little inconsistent, along with the 'j' descender loop length/width.
Thanks for your guidance Salman :)

@Erica McPhee Thank you Erica :) What a cool and practical idea. Yeah paper can be framed, but spending that time on something usable--I love it. How are you adding your design on to the mat? I'd love to see it when you are finished.
