Newt - Your spacing needs work, the NEW are all right next to and overlapping each other, but then the T is just out there and it creates some unwanted negative space. Also, I think a few of your bars are suffering. The last thing technically you didn't do wrong but, I think that when your doing a shadow you shouldn't do it just horizontally if ya know what I mean, I would've put it up and right not just right, it usually looks much better that way. Your blending is good though. Oh you also need to add more highlights because you only did like half of them and that looks whack.

ViniVidiVici
01-28-2011, 03:23 AM
Hekle - Fairly good but watch bar width
Soej - You need to start way simpler, way way simpler, You have real real bad bars, and your letters aren't even recognizable, and I don't mean that in any good way. Go simpler, work on letter structure and less on 3d and backgrounds/fills.

Cl4sh
01-28-2011, 07:12 AM
Chill with that 3D too man. Shit strains my eyes. Makes the piece hard too look at.
But I agree with Vini. Your bars are completely different widths. The S and O are recognizable, but you can barely tell what the E and J look like.
I kinda like how to 3D from the J goes over the E though. It adds more depth to the piece.
Keep working brotha. Don't give up. Then you're a mufuckin quiter.

Dig it! but maybe make the vertical bars on the T's a little bit wider?

BoomSlang
01-30-2011, 04:01 PM
did em that way on purpose to be honest. top bars are approx 1.5 the width of the verts.
same for the uprights of the w , the backbone of the y and the center bar of the s.
will work on diff variations over the next week or so and see what turns the best feedback

thanks for lookin tho

give crits instead. again, the crown was just for decoration, chill

I agree with Phat 2 the whole point of posting is to learn and teach one another. So phat 2 saw something he liked and used it. And as far as the crown goes yes its kinda cliche but Phat 2 can do whatever the hell he wants and personally the crown really doesn't take anything from the piece anyway. I really like the fills though really nice what did you use?

Dcicfhbimv
01-31-2011, 03:44 AM
Oh and sorry kiddy don't want to overlook ya. The k kinda looks like a "b" and the y on the end isn't working for me. Also the breaks in the " i " are sort of overkill. I wish I had some advice for your piece but I can't really think of anything else just figured I'd at least try and crit your work.

Phat 2
01-31-2011, 07:42 AM
yemen thanks... yeah I mean a lotta people take crowns and dat shit too seriously, but to me it's ok as long as your intentions are like the ones I had when I drew. I definitely am not a self proclaimed king at all, I know I'm still just merely a knight... and I needed something to fill that negative space between my face and the piece, so i just added the first thing i could think of
I was using cheapshit stabilo markers, nothing special at all really

Your colouring and sketch capabilities are clearly extremely good, but the letters there seem kind of weak. Id think about fattening them up abit. Youd lose the 'japanese' style of lettering to fit the samurai theme but it might be worth it.

aight so before you hate, i dont paint... ever lol. i got home from work and randomly decided to do this cuz i am feeling somewhat depressed and i decided i wanted to paint something and i wanted to do something dark and evil and this came to my mind. i wasnt too concerned on how it came out. i did it for me and me only
and i realize this isnt really graff related but i posted it here get over it
i used acrylics, paint marker, bent bobby pin since i lacked a paint brush, torn sock.

Thanks man. The projects already done. So i can't really faten the letters up now. But I'll keep it in mind for my next piece. I've been doing alot more characters lately so it may take awhile. But a few ideas for a fresh theme or a word would be awesome as hell.




Your colouring and sketch capabilities are clearly extremely good, but the letters there seem kind of weak. Id think about fattening them up abit. Youd lose the 'japanese' style of lettering to fit the samurai theme but it might be worth it.

i know how shit goes,crits for crits or whatever.so ima critique some of yall niggras


SAMURAI-lord jesus,where do i start haha.it looks obvious that this is your first few months,because its very similar to how i started out.first off your letters are overlapping too much,before i read your post i thought it said sakurai...your m is almost non distinguishable
becuase of the S's overlap.space them out more so that the individual letters are better able to be recognized.the s as the A's middle bar is a bad look,its its own letter and shouldnt have to depend on other letters making up its bars.also the i is unrecognizable because its so small.dont trip just practice more


NYNJA.i cant read it.i think you should go back to simples until you have a better understanding of the letters,honestly i think that you hsould find someone who knows what their doing with 3ds.i cant even do them.my homies can though,in the end it takes alot of practice and alot of patience,but if thats the style your wanna do i suggest you work on making the letters more pronouncable.really just keep practicing.

NEWT-nice little simple.you should make sure that your individual bars are more consistent
in thickness,they look cattywampus,im not saying to make your letters more rigid or block like
but the actual bars them selfs should be be equal in consistency the whole lenght of the bar

really it looks like something that will correct itself with more practice,your on the right track though.

Of course you can haz critz now. honestly didnt look back to this thread till just now so I totally missed your post. I can see what your talking about regarding the letters and it shows in your work. the extention dipping from the end of the "R" is alright I'd just make the one on the "K" go the opposite way you know inward to match. And the o and c work but come off a bit weak. Looking back you used the extention from the "k" to make the 1 so maybe you could just use the back end to tie it inward and leave the front one as is. Hope it helps. And no not my 1st few months. Just screwing around trying to make something out of nothing.

Yea i know the 3d is completly horrible at the moment, i havent stopped practicing letter structure and basics, this is just something i came up with recently and have only done about 3 pieces with to see if i like the concept of 3d multiple perspective. And thanks ian hopefully i can find someone who is good with 3d when i get back from basic, also it probably is the direction i will go once i get everything down.

Dcicfhbimv- i really dig the whole samurai theme, but the letters do need to be more seperated, im not a big fan of how there are really close for the SAM and more spread apart for the UARI half. Other than that its a really good piece!

NEWT- i like how simple it is, seems very clean, and the green outline is very subtle but looks good!

Romero- other than the extensions on the R and K it looks pretty good, except my first quick glance at the R sorta looked like a B so maybe move the leg out a little? keep up the good work, i would definitly like to see it redone.

Ian- awsome concept the arrow connected to the A does look a little off but if you finish it im sure it would look great! shoot i would even send you a good set of pencils to see it finshed! haha keep working on it, its looking good.

Bro if you are going to get mad every time someone says your shit is bad (it is, all of it, not just your throw), then you might as well just quit right now.
Throws are something to "put up quick" that reflects your style, like "this is how dope the shit I can pull off in a hot spot is", if it's bad then you are just making yourself look bad.

You are making reasons why having bad graffiti is ok. If you dont want to be good at graffiti thats cool but dont think youre anything close to good right now cus your stuff is really bad, it looks like youve been writing for two months at the most. Im not saying that as an insult or anything, its just true.
Im mucchh better than you dude, but I still think that about 90% of my stuff is awful and the other 10% still isnt good.

A nice way to find a new name is taking a word and spelling it differently. For example i thought of the word telescope. Seperated scope, spelt it with a k. I liked it so stuck with it.
Or you could literally just draw out a graf alphabet and stick together the ones you like the most, then arrange them into a word.

not when u think of them as just simply an upside down M hehe :P

ENKM, go to the main forum and then into the throws/bombs thread and check out some photos there, draw some inspiration from dem big heads, see how they operate their machinery etc... for a starting point, I'd say just spend a good couple hours checking ot flicks, nothing more. find what you like and start practicing on a similar style.
but in general, I'd say u need to structure your letters better, and give them better flow if u know what I mean, you probably have the idea in mind, but you need the practice

Looking for some serious crits on this. no bullshit

NosE2
02-06-2011, 01:21 PM
either shorten the left bar on the w or make the right bar taller. on the bottom of your w on the right those weird curves don't really make sense...make them sharper..work on that e...lines are kinda shaky...and the bottom leg of the e should be goin more out instead of up, maybe connect that bar on the R to the bar on the E or something like that. idk whats up with that thing on your R..you know what im talkin about. and the kicking leg should be more even instead of skinny to big. i feel like i can see you drew a line across the top to make it proportionate....yet you went right above it with the r and the tip of the m....the 3d is on point except the W has a little bit more than the rest...your M looks fine to me just try and make the M and W match. I like the little background hatchpattern thing. keep it up bro

@zewl aint really diggin the way u did your Z, the way you made the bars connecting unsmoothly so many times(if that makes sense) i think the top part is fine but the bottom half makes it look weird and then the way it overlaps the e makes it so u cant really see its an e. and u threw in a couple weird extensions like at the top left bar of the W...just my 2 cents

looks alright not a huge fan of the swirl on the end of the "t" though. and the "y' may look kinda tight if it had a similar style to the end of the "h" . Other than that its pretty chill might try yellow green and black <-just my take pastel green regular yellow and thick black lines would work pretty well.

next time throw both of those in the same post so you dont have to make 2. It's alright but the bars are pretty messed up, the s looks alright with the way you made it thin but it doesnt fit the rest of the letters because none of the others are thin. i would stick to consistent widths for your bars for now

Heads up I just took up a 4 letter word once to feel it out. chill the hell out. I don't go by sane I just figured hey I don't use those letters often. So if someone happened to have a similar idea awhile ago I really don't give a shit. And again the shit took me like 5 minutes so ease up just figured I'd work on my lettering and hopefully get some crits since my last crit said my work was nearly elligible. But sure thanks for overlooking the idea completely simply becasue the letters have been used before.

zewl,lose some of those extensions and add ons.you got alot of them and it takes away from the actual letters,the L should be elongated becasue its leg is kinda long and it makes it look a bit like a w.i would lose the arrow hearts on the w too.but thats me.


all in all its not bad,it just seems jumbled.you look like your using too many add ons to cover up negative space,you should try different spacing and a thicker 3d.that will make the negative space less noticable.

menace- I like that style, looks dope. only thing is i don't see a point of origin on the arrow on the right of the word. If you're gonna use an arrow or connect something, its always a good idea to not have it come out of nowhere.

safe i like that a lot, it has nice flow and the fill looks nice. only suggestions id have is to have that one part of the a go through instead of going over (take out the horizontal lines where it overlaps) and make your bars more equal. some of the flares are good but the middle of the S, right of the a, middle of the f and top left of the e seem too thin IMO

NO NO NO NO NO. Alright, First of all, your name isn't called a handy. It's a name. A handy is what is know by most people as a tag. Second, three letters is a crew, so unless you're a whole crew by yourself, new name. Third of all, never try anything remotely similar to that last one for a LONG time. Lastly, Simples.

haha the longer im on this site, the funnier the series of events with new members seems to me. It seems like everyone comes on this site, makes a first post with some whack ass piece(s) with 1000 extensions/arrows/addons with absolutely no structure or flow thinking theyre the shit, then everyone yells at them to do simples, usually it takes them 5-10 more fucked up pieces to realize that a simple is actually just plain keyboard letters, then they do a few, either get bored and leave and go back to their shitty shit or continue to progress through simps and shit. that being said, EWL go do some simples. should look like GETH and SONAR

NO NO NO NO NO. Alright, First of all, your name isn't called a handy. It's a name. A handy is what is know by most people as a tag. Second, three letters is a crew, so unless you're a whole crew by yourself, new name. Third of all, never try anything remotely similar to that last one for a LONG time. Lastly, Simples.
dude can write what he wants yo, some of my favorite pieces is by people with only 3 letters. Though i think it should be for people with more artistic skill so it's not too boring. bio's piece on the home page is a good example...
But yeah dude start simple get flow, expand.
