Been working on this again, mainly the lowercase. any feedback is welcome, especially those of you who do this type of thing everyday. thanks as always guys.

My only advise, don't stress the letterforms until you get them into a font making program. I always change loads after seeing them in context. This looks great so far. Always in need of a new script.
I like it a lot. The thin loop on the b may get a bit too thin.
Excited to see this! At the bottom of the 'b' (where the stem turns into the bowl) it should probably get a bit thinner, and I might beef up the outer portion of the 'e's shoulder. Lower line is looking especially good.
How are you planning to turn it into a font? Do you have a program already, or what are you considering using?
@Kyle Wayne Benson thanks, I agree it's always good seeing it in context
@Jude Landry thanks ' that is too thin, gonna work that out thanks for the suggestion
@Joseph Alessio thanks , I agree ll work on that. As for programs I've never used any and have no knowledge so will have to find someone help me out most likely.
Looks really sweet! So now on to battle the next series of glyphs! I think the top of the 'c' could be a bit fatter, probably to the same extent as the 'e'. Or otherwise just a bit wider, since it looks condensed and upright compared to the 'a' now.
I like the 'k'! Perhaps it could use a bit deeper 'cut' between the loop and tail (same level you used on the 'n' and 'm') so it won't be too dark.
Looking forward to the results!
Pretty tight. I think the tail on the F looks a little bit out of character from the consistent forward lean the rest of the letterforms have. Perhaps it should sway back like the J rather than curve forward? Just my opinion. Fantastic beginning.
nice forms, neil. let me sit on this for a bit before i give my two cents...
Hey Neil, do you have serious intentions to turn this into a working typeface or are you just experimenting by drawing the alphabet in a consistent way?
@Dave Foster serious intentions of course
If you haven't already I'd get it into robofont asap because not only will the errors in width and stroke weight become more obvious in context, but you're gonna need to consider the method you're gonna use to link every letter to one another. Spacing is just as important as the letter shapes.
Really like it.
Except of the thin thing at the b.
And at first I read ij as ÿ ...
@Dave Foster I agree, I know there are spacing issues and I was worried about how all the different connections are going to work, I have just never used a font program, are they hard to learn?
Thanks, ij is not a problem as it just a mockup for now.
No, it's just a tool, I'm sure you're capable of learning. You've basically got three options, Glyphs, Robofont and Fontlab. You might be best off with Glyphs, it's a cheaper all in one solution that includes kerning. Possibly get Robofont if you're interested in doing this stuff more often but it's part of the UFO workflow and is only the drawing and spacing part. Other programs are needed to do other specific actions like kerning and I'd avoid FontLab altogether.
@Dave Foster big help man thank you! yeah I dont plan on doing this type of thing a lot so for robofont is out, and glyphs looks good, I am going to look into it more right now, thanks again!
That lowercase "g" is swanky!!
