Practicing modern calligraphy basics

There’s a fantastic class on Skillshare for learning how to get started with hand lettering called Hand Lettering: 4 Easy Steps to Modern Calligraphy. It covers how to form the letters, which helped me get past my problems making round letter shapes, connecting the letters (it’s not like writing in cursive), and adding weight to the letters without a traditional calligraphy writing tool.

I created my own copy of the instructor’s class project to see if I could imitate the forming of the letters and the composition:
