"Consistency is key!" This worn old adage couldn't be more applicable to hand-lettering and calligraphy. Especially when you're learning, your letters should be consistent—in height, width, slant, and so much more. Of course, I believe that this rule, once learned, can and should be stylistically broken. But you should learn to form letters the way they are intended first, before you can approach variations. Practice sheets will help.
These practice sheets can be printed on any kind of letter-sized paper (8.5in x 11in), so they will work for any kind of lettering you want to practice, whether hand-lettering or "faux calligraphy," brush pen lettering, dip pen and ink calligraphy, or even watercolor brush calligraphy!
