Good start, I have not yet created a font. However I will soon! Nice to see some traditional work before it becomes digitalized.

Nice drawings!
If you do get stuck on certain characters, try using a paint brush to draw. This will allow a natural flow of the strokes. The rounded terminals are a dead-give-away to this style of type.
I also noticed that your numbers, or figures, are looking very blocky. The numbers in your reference photo fit better with the typeface. Try drawing the numbers with a similar stroke contrast to the lower case letters so that all the characters will harmonize with the design.

Keep up the good work!
