There is no right or wrong on what particular style you want your letters to look. I myself, have created a simple brush lettering style that has been very popular when I used to do gift bags for my wedding clients.
Some of my letters have change as you can see the “E” in Emily on the pink gift bag vs how I formed the “E” on my brush lettering worksheets. It just shows you how in your journey your lettering style is always evolving.
If you notice on my Instagram, how my lettering style was before I began my brush lettering. It looks totally different then what it was in the past vs today.

Now take everything you have learned previous and put it all together. Learning brush lettering takes a lot of practice. It’s no overnight skill. But as you continue to practice more you will see your improvement over time.
