Taurine - Modern Style

Hey, I am currently a student in my second typography class. We have been working on a font for the past 6 weeks, and I am to the point where I am ready to input it into a font software. However, I wanted to put it out there first for a critique

This is my first font, so any and all feedback is very much appreciated.

My inspiration for this font is from a Celtic writing style mixed with a Modern typestyle (Didot being my primary reference.) While most of the Celtic touches have disappeared during revisions, a few touches still remain.

I am mostly looking for consistency between the letterforms, however all comments and suggestions will be helpful.

Anyways, I am looking forward to some outside opinion. I have been staring at these letters for so long that I tend to not see the flaws until someone points them out to me.

Because I have not put it into the font software yet, I am not including entire paragraphs of text. However, I did hand set a quote in three different sizes, so I am including that as well as the upper and lowercase. I have the numbers and most of the punctuation and special characters drawn and inside the computer, but they are not cleaned up yet, so I am not including them.

For the time being, this font is called Taurine, named after the main ingredient consumed while creating it, hope you enjoy.

I love it...to my eye, it's quite original and fresh...love the H and K, both caps and lc, esp how the top crossbar offsets the inventive action down below for the lower case k. I'm not a type designer, just a bigtime consumer, so I can't give more detailed by-the-letter critiques, but this one has real promise and I hope you carry it on.
