▶ Calligraphy Exercises - Constructing the Alphabet - Walmir Medeiros - Excellent exercises and instruction for beginning calligraphers. It's a good idea to do these as a warm up before you start lettering every day, until you get comfortable. Notice he uses a pencil, which is many calligraphers' tool of choice, for layout and practice -- less messy, and it has a nice "drag" on the paper, giving you more control.
