christy 29/60 and 30/60
these two are not spectacular. however, they illustrate a good point. if you learn the basic shapes of a style like uncial, you can have fun trying those shapes with a variety of tools. the top one is pointed brush marker and the bottom one is a broad edge marker. uncial is also a good beginner style because you only have to learn one letter, no caps way back then. have we talked about who invented caps? anybody out there who does not know and wants to know? there will be a prize for the person who posts the answer first after someone asks for more info. clearly, i am fishing for comments. :-)
and yes, i know, the r in the top one is not an uncial r. you really can make up your own styles if you want to.
