smackone-you should use bars when making letters and do block letters for now

Task977
05-23-2011, 01:50 PM
Damo - Thats far too busy, I can only make out an R and an E
Smack - Don't do block letters, just do keyboard letters using bars. SMACK <---- like that

@Zers I like it a lot, but the bottom left corner of the E should not be rounded to stay in the style of the other letters. I don't like the R either. It's too small and just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the piece. The Z is dope and if the S was a little bit more like a backwards version of the Z it would be dope (mostly on the bottom part. Bring the leg up slightly higher)

@Smack Like Damo said - work on bars. Try to make all you letters look like this EMSOES. Once you get that down well then you can try to add extensions and bend parts of letters, but until you have better control and understand letter structure stick to simples.

@Damo I can see that you are using bars, but it looks really forced with all the extensions and bent bars. It doesn't flow at all. Try to lose the business of all the extensions and get some dope letters and flow in your piece before adding extensions. Use the letters to create the flow of the piece, then try to use extensions to accentuate the flow of the letters.

@Jest The E and S are not the same style as the J and T so it looks off in my opinion. If you could get the J and T to match E and S that has potential.

ZERS- the Z looks good. parts of the letters look good and other parts are wack. Make them more the same size
JEST- the E looks good. the T is a lol too fat. the things on top of the E and S are too big

EMSOES and DAMO- i agree with what BRER said about yall. Damo your shit is hard to read bro

DamoOne
05-23-2011, 03:27 PM
thank you for the crits
Task977-the J and T are simpler then the E and S so it looks weird,try matching the letters in complexity (if that makes any sense, english is not my main language)
Shrooms-I suggest you to do simples a little while longer and try making the letters the same size,the R is squished between the E and S and that is not dope
thepekins-I like the simplicity of it and some of the letters look dope,I would suggest yo experiment a little because it seems you have basic letter structure down

here is a simple version of the D colored with pastels (I don't have any markers left),I hope I'm going in the right direction now,more feedback would be nice

tempo, what are you doing? go back to more simple, your bar width is sooo outta wack, your 3D is way off everywhere, and your overall letters suck in this one to man... so like i said go back to more simple, and gradually (once you have bar width etc. down) start adding more style.

dankbudz
05-24-2011, 12:25 AM
@tempo
exactly what TastymcNasty said, listen to him. and anyone else that says keep it simple.

The S is hurtin like hell and doesnt fit the E and D at all.
but the question i got is, does the ED flow well? and should i work the S to fit the ED, or the other way around?
give me some opinions

05-24-2011, 12:29 AM
^you double posted breh:p. But uh as for flow goes id say nah, none of the letters flow well. When you connect letters/extend letters, you want to make sure the connections or extensions are smooth. The E doesnt go into the top of the D smoothly... Where'd that Seder peice go? id try to progress off of that

dankbudz

05-24-2011, 12:50 AM
^Then all the extensions and bullshit would still make it look super bad

@dankity-da-dank-da-dank-dankbudz That S is nice, I think you should do more like that... ^thats the best ive seen from ya. As for flow goes on the other one, it really takes experimenting. Your gonna do things wrong a lot but its part of trial and error, but i think you'll pick it up... some others on here recently wont be as fortunate....

You wan exchange? I been feelin S's a little bit more lately

dankbudz
05-24-2011, 12:51 AM
@ tempo
uh, try taking off all the extensions, and using making good use of bars that make sense, keeping them the same width too. try it out, but i would still do hella key board letters like TEMPO. itll help, mannn

05-24-2011, 08:44 PM
sick - i like the S, E, and O but i kept thinking your V was a C or something until i saw that u wrote sevor under the pic. So u should probably fix that. The R looks good except i think the leg is too thin compared to the rest of the letters

prome - get rid of the arrows they are really random and come out of nowhere, and don't make your E backwards cause that just looks bad, also the extension on the leg of the R makes it look like a B. pretty much u need to make your letters more simple and like StayHyE said make your bars the same size.

upper90daynnight
05-26-2011, 09:50 AM
Zeta go simple bro, before you work on flow between your letters and shape you need to get everything cleaned up so work on making your 3d the same everywhaere and alot more even, also usually you do the first letter caps and then the rest lower case or you do all capital letters keep working on it bro and as for your black lines what kinda marker are you using?

Thanks for the crits bro, personally I like the e and a that way, but you're saying I should make the z capital or something? I dont really get it... I'm using On The Run 830 graphic twin markers, on a MTN blackbook (dunno what kinda paper that is). It's like the ink is far too agressive for the paper, it leaks right through the pages.

ELMO - Don't put that on a sweater, I probably sound like an asshole, but just don't.
ANEK - I like the first one but dont make the E overlap the N and make it so the bars coming off the k aren't squished like that.
I don't really want crits on the little guy's head poking out, but go ahead if you like
I changed the bar widths a bit. Once I get this down I'm gunna work on extensions, any tips on them?

no thats a bad idea to tell them your going to be doing something illegal with the paint (unless there another writer)
task977 just get a bum to buy it for you and then give him the change. or if you look 18 you could just try to buy it yourself, but since your 13 that probably wont work so just go with the bum

shroomsh - thats dope, your stuff always looks so sick

Humr - The top left is the best two letter and the center is the best full. The H on the last pic is very hard to decipher, I do think it's better than the second pic though
Glums - I think you should make your U the same size as the rest of the letters. Your handstyles need quite a bit of work as well

@raek more arrows!
@flat for the love of god do something different, you should exchange with dude that asked you cause you gotta get out of the habit of doing the same fuckin letters the same fuckin wack style all the fuckin time

placement on that shit was off cause it was filled with doodles and after i did SED i decider to add ER, and yeah i was thinking those extensions werent great, but for some reason i have a tendency to still put em.. fuck haha
that sketch is looking sick

so i just busted some shit out, and it alll looked way to gay to go with past RE, i think my bars were too thick or some. this is quick as hell, but i just gotta know if im on the right track for making letters flow, shits been pissing me off! i am trying to avoid extensions and making parts of letters go one way cause i want it to.. idk haha, just kinda let my pencil go on this one.

try making those letters simple, like keyboards. just plain old letters for now. its a bitch but it pays off.
also try to keep bar width consistant, mainly with that whole DOPE part. work on that 3D, each line should be at the same angle for that one. you could practice drawing a vantage point and drawing the lines to that. whatevers good man, just keep practicing. key is too learn letters before you try "cool shit" with them. no matter how tempting it is haha. cause just doing simples can get fuckin boring!

I'm not an expert, but I'm not feeling the W, the gangbang of the I, or the L. The letters look disjointed where they meet, the shapes are all over the place with length and width. Try fatten some of the bars like on the W and making it look like it's one item and not a bunch of things thrown up. The 3D also look a bit off on the L and W. As for the color scheme, don't both adding color if you don't like it. Why settle when you have a choice in the matter?

@willis the L is real bad, take the little bend at the top out, and take the extension on the bottom bar off

Too wide of space between letter bars and the I is too slim. Also a letter in graffiti is made of shapes, not actual form in most cases.

rasm- not bad, but some of your bars are a little off (i.e. height width)... and you got any new flicks to show?

id prefer to get crits on the piece, seeing as how i only seem to ever get critiqued on the throws nowadays...

for the piece id lower that bar on the R down and not cover the left bar on the A so much.
I also dont really like that crazy lil curl on the right leg of the R.
thats all i got aha

your dumb, im not even going to try and explain to you why because it will just go over your head

@tasty i think me and phat critted you in the exchange thread, not on this particular piece but the same crits apply to this 1, I think your letters look best when you dont make the bars look like theyre on top of eachother like the S as opposed to the A and R ya digg? Cause the A would look better if the insides were all clean instead of the middle bar being on top of the other 2 ya digg?

I like the A and the R on that piece much better than the S and the O. Although I do think it would look better if you hadn't made the horizontal bars look as though they're overlapping the rest of the letters, especially on the A. The shape of the O seems odd to me, and the extended bottom of the S is just way to big in comparison to the top curve. That's just my two cents, take it or leave it. Not too shabby overall though. The 3D looks pretty solid.

dankbudz, not too bad for a simple. The A and C look like they're tilted a little more to the left than the R, E, and H, which didn't help the flow. The 3D seems pretty solid though.

I did this recently but wasn't really feeling it at the time, so I threw the 3D and outline on it without giving a fuck. Says Egor. Enjoy, if possible.

Soar- i think you need to just try a whole new style, cause that shit isnt working at all. i havent seen much progression from you at all over the past four months. so just start doing other styles it makes your progress much faster.
Rasm- Your shit is pretty good there are some areas in all of the peices that could use work ex the bottom bar of the L and the leg of the R on the BLOXOR piece
Wil- Its decent i dont really know what to crit other then just keep workin those letters and itll come eventually
Dank- That is tits, one of the best things ive seen from you, you could definitely work on that R though
Egor- Your lines are mad shakey and your E sucks but other then that its not that bad

There you go faggots.

Egor - I like your letters maybe make the middle bar in the E a little longer to get rid of that dead space
Bloxor - I like that, dont know if you really needs the extra bars at the bottom corners but its nice.

Yup I was just fucking around with symmetry on that Bloxor piece and like I said, the Egor piece is whack. The lines are shaky because it was a rough sketch that I stopped caring about. Thanks for the crits though.

Bloxor - I like that, dont know if you really needs the extra bars at the bottom corners but its nice.Yeah there definitely is some dead space in that Egor piece, and I was just getting fancy on the Bloxor one. I normally struggle the most with add-ons, because I always feel like I'm adding random shit that the piece never needs. So I usually end up with simples, haha.

Here's some newer and slightly better shit. Still fucking around with styles and letters. Notice how they're all so simple. The oTang one was the quickest so it's probably the worst. http://www.bombingscience.com/graffitiforum/showthread.php?663-Tot-Black-Books&p=1723562&viewfull=1#post1723562

06-05-2011, 05:49 PM
you clearly got drawing and painting in themselves down, but you really gotta work on letter structure. doesnt mean you gotta drop the style, just hit up simples and see how that helps, because that piece could easily be mistaken as SZB. its a streatch, cause you can distinguish the F with the middle bar and tell its an A simply because the lower extension isnt connecting, but its the fact that your extensions are so big.
In some places the extensions bigger then the bars of the letter itself, and the fact that they are placed in areas which could make it into a different letter, like the L, makes it turn into a Z. Hope you take some of this to hear cause ive seen people tell you to make your stuff simpler and you continuously would paint the same piece but with a different extension.
Extensions arent everything, they can look hella sick, or gay as fuck.

weedeater
06-05-2011, 07:25 PM
^^^ you just wasted a lot of time typing that. EVERYONE has been telling him his letters are wack and he needs to drop his extensions.... so he adds more extensions and rounds the edges of his letters instead of keeping them sharp like he has been doing. obviously he can paint, and he gets up (even though they are all legals) so respect for that i guess, but he's going backwards in terms of progressing. im sick of him asking for crits, he needs to start saying "hop on my dick if you like it, dont post if you dont". not trying to hate, but as much as flat and as good as he is at painting, his shit be sooooo fire if he'd listen to the dudes on here.

DaFugg
06-05-2011, 09:13 PM
It's a nice style if you dont give a shit what people think it says. I got S2A or SZB/A I never suspected FLA if that's what it is. There's too many extensions that make it look like multiple letters. I cant tell you what to do because your skill surpasses mine but if you want crits I'd say make your letters more distinguishable.

Anyone got anything to say in regards to the two I posted?

dankbudz
06-05-2011, 11:56 PM

Hulk- try and keep bar width consistent and work on the U S and T. mainly S and T.

TastyMcNasty
06-05-2011, 11:56 PM
^^ its like the blind leading the blind...

not to be offensive (especially because my skills arent too great), but that DUST piece is wack... to begin, the extensions and connections should be saved until you are of a higher skill level, equal bar width is non-existent, 3D is waayyy off the S doesnt look like and S at all it looks more like a B (like ACEK said), and most importantly structure seems to be completly lacking in that piece...

like i said not trying to be a dick just trying to help, so take the advice and start simple and you'll be on your way... peace

EDIT: i guess its kinda like the almost-blind leading the blind now haha

the D is your best letter, then the U, then the S, and that T is beyond shit. no hate. haha. and Tasty got you with the whole extensions and shit.
if you are honestly looking to progress and arent too in love what you have been doin, you gotta say fuck it and really work on letters. draw hella simples, same bar width, same height, on one line. the simpler the better untill you honestly know why you are doing what you are doing.

oh and that is lookin alot better then the first thing you posted.

06-06-2011, 02:17 AM
@Dust, yeah, the second sketch is better than the first, but that's really not saying much. First off, they're practically the same, and you have to start switching it up more than that if you ever want to improve. Don't look at the first sketch when you draw the next, or else you end up with the same exact connections and letter shapes. Actually, drop the extensions and add-ons all together. You really need to go back to square one and work on your letter structure before you should be thinking about complexity. Try to keep the letter heights and widths consistent. The T is too tall and the U is much narrower than the rest of the letters. Also your 3D is atrocious. On the second sketch, it seems to be going down and to the left in most places, except for the very left part of the D where it goes to the right, and you left it out on the entire bottom of the piece. It also looks like the top of the S is mooning someone up there. These are just crits, and I'm no pro, but take 'em or leave 'em.

@Shroomish, Looks good man. It might be a little over the top in some places, but I'm digging the style and I like the Z and the S a lot. I don't like the E and the R quite as much but they're not bad. This would look awesome on a wall.

@Gnar, Not too bad. The left side of the G is a little odd shaped. The N is funky but I like it, and I like the A too. I can definitely see some style in these letters. The R isn't bad either, just keep working with them if you don't like them. I found them tricky at first but now they're probably my favorite letter. Your bar height is consistent, and so is your letter height and width. Pushing the letters closer together would help with the flow, and throwing some 3D or drop shadow on would finish it off. Keep it up, you're on the right track.

Try drawing straighter lines and keeping your letters the same width throughout. A couple of them are wider at the top than at the bottom. That would help your 3D look better too. The O is the best letter, but the 3D is a off on the right side.

make the N's the same, fix the O, fix the middle and bottom of the E, and remove the extension on the Y and fix the right also.
i would say stick to simples a while longer

here a sketch for talking
quickie while barely studying for math final, experimenting and shit, the D doesnt flow, but eh. tear this shit apart with crits.

^None of that "flows" the top of the R is out of place, the A's top bar is deformed making the A deformed, and the D aint all that bad of a D except the top right corner of the straight vertical bar

i has pencil sketchs but they all unfinished, starting on an exchange for nesa, may put pics later, may not

tombie- some are better, stop doing that weird shit with the E's middle bar. its either smaller or equal length.
ribcage- thanks for them crits man, i feel like im slowly improving on making my letters flow, but thats probably me just bein dumb.
and yes... algebra, i hate math. its not my strong suite.

keep your bars the same width, and do it like GETH
also on that character usually the flat part on the eye would be where the eye lid would be, so it kinda looks wonky. hands and feet are decent just needs minor work, if you are trying to improve that, just practice drawing your own hands. for characters it just takes alot of doodling random things

@Geth, your 3D is really hurting in places, especially the top of the H, the inside of the G, and the entire E. Make sure you keep your bar width consistent. The bars on the E are so much narrower than the T, and the H is like that too. In some cases it's alright to have different widths, but here it's not working too well. The T also kills the flow of the GE because it's so thick and wide, and this piece would probably work better without it. Stay simple and keep working on that structure.

The throw is pretty cool the rest not so much. Work on simple letter forms and loose the arrows and connections until u can make them work.

Hulk, I can't read that.
Moon, the throw is okay, except the O's need a lot of work. Your extensions are all over the place, so just get rid of them until you get your structure down.

I've got a can of black, a can of chrome, and a bucket of white paint, so I'm about to go roll this up on the highway tomorrow morning, any crits before I do?
auto-crit: I'm thinking a regular straight letter uppercase A with round edges instead of the @... y'all agree? or is the @ a good idea?

^ That E is too far from the Z and looks like a different style from the rest of the letters. Try keeping your hand straight.
Phat, I'd go with an uppercase A also, but try to fit that style.

thanks for the crits dankbuds and Rasm
what do you think of this? better?

@ Phat 2 the H looks weird like that i think you should change it to look like a normal H, and i agree with Hulk, go with the uppercase A

just colored this today, i know the lines are a bit wobbly in some places cause i don't have a steady hand
