i think what a ton of these toys are missing is flow in their letters... they see a few letters different places they like and try to put 'em together... it wont work. idk how to help, but try not to make each letter its own choppy letter, and think about how the letters ALL are together. i'll try to upload a pic of some examples on names that are on here recently. these helping pics are more for credits, so don't think im trying to sound preachy haha

bump from last page. dankbudz- Too much goin on with your lowercase d, your letters are leaning the same way which is good, maybe try some capital Es in the 2nd one.

dankbudz
10-20-2011, 03:23 PM
yea lower case D is fucked, ive been doin upper case E's and they just get mad boring. bout to do a few quickies and upload em

that first on is dope, but the end of it is mad empty.
on the 2nd i got no idea what the second letter is, unless its a V. and those lines on the K are kinda random, unless im missing something haha

Norfsuthr
10-20-2011, 03:46 PM
1st is 8you second is ATEYOU. Not sure where you're seeing a K?

I agree about the 1st one lookin emtpy, I'm having trouble with U's because theyre too simple. Same with O's, I need to find some inspiration.

Waiting on your new ones..

dankbudz
10-20-2011, 03:51 PM
the T and E look like a K, just dont have the < part of the E touching the T, also i think a flat bar on the T would be it look better.

my upper case E's always look sloppy

Mues- looks good, try putting in a couple more vertical lines to go with the M, because it's straight and the others are mostly curvy. Like extend the vertical line on the R and make it a capital.

googie you should definitely use pens and markers instead but as far as your letters go the N is pretty nice but you should make the 2 right most bars in a single line. Bs and Ms are workable, scrap the rest.

And not even that, it looks like your tagging a fence thats in front of people's houses. Do you see any other tags in that neighborhood? I doubt it. Tag spots that matter. This isn't giving you rep, its downgrading your shit. Get your shit straight man.

Not about to bump it but personally I like toga's shit. Big black and ugly tags on virgin white walls is just distasteful vandalism, and the fact that it's far from good graffiti makes it even better. No argument can be made that it is art, it's just damage, which i like. Keep at it toga, but you might want to paint sewers and shit for a while.

Snoke that e is bad. Make the N and K smaller or the SO bigger. Youre on the right track. About your tags, they suck. Practice.

BAKER - That second one is the shit! Keep pumping out more shit like that, keep it consistent

BLOEK - I don't think theres a flow to your overall tag, some are soft angles and some are sharp, the B and L especially, the rest of the letters can stay, try making the B and L look more like the OEK

Snoke - keep all of the middle of the letters even, like the middle of your S then the middle bends of your N, the middle point on your O, the legs on your K and the middle of your E all even throughout the tag.

I mean, thats not good graffiti but i think you can make something interesting out of it if you keep working. its illegible right now and you def need to just work on simples for a while.

reach the bottom looks straight but the top one is where i dont like the middle letters. they gotta stay simple but the A and C dont look good, just try different shit till you find it.

MN, I would say, make your letters more proportionate to each other, and stay on the same level the whole time. The level thing is also caused by non proportionate letters, see how your first two letters are on the same level, then because of your letters becoming like 2 fonts bigger, they're on a lower level for the last two.

Snoke: I kinda like this idea. I often use very tall or wide letters. I suggest straightening out the right legs of the N and K, and maybe a lower case E styled to match the S. It will give it more symmetry

So... i've always loved looking at graffiti in my hometown and on trains passing through from other places but I never gave it a shot. After watching the "Exit Through the Gift Shop" (a Banksy/street art/some graffiti) documentary on Netflix, I started looking up graff sites. I'm now pretty interested in this craft and culture, and would like to give it a shot.

I've never had a nickname, so i'm still trying to decide on that. These are my first "tags" ever, and they're absolutely horrible. Everything about them is bad: letter structure, flow, and proportions....

But they're my first attempts and I would like some critiques and suggestions on them. Also, if any of these names are taken let me know (I searched Google and other graff sites, but didn't see anything):

Pokey (I hate my "Y" on this but don't know what else to do):

Leefx, finding an original name is tough. I've gone through like 4 in the past 2 weeks. Don't try to make your first tags flow so much. Kinda sketch it out. Don't make them too big in the begining. Keep working on it man! We're here for help and support.

Knowthelegde - No doubt you have a talent for tags. Keep that shit up. Maybe you could get that K a tad bit bigger, so it doesn't look as cramped. The right side of your M needs fixing too. Maybe kinda do like the Left side of it. The bend makes the letter look awkward.

Ohh and. Pick what you're going to roll with Arketeck or Muke. (IMO You're gonna be able to do more with Muke, as it is shorter and more original.)

Do you guys know why Knowtheledge is pretty good at tags? Its because he probably took time with his work. If you want to improve your tag skills, fill up two notebooks with tags, alphabets, different words, whatever. Just fucking WRITE. Don't post something unless a) you're happy with what you got or b) are working on something and want some crits from other people. And don't take opinions from people that don't write. You can show them a garbage tag and an even worse piece and they'll say its cool or you rock. I'm guessing most of you are young, so get out and explore places, meet other writers, get inspired damn it. I fortunately have a friend whose got the hook up with some other writers in St. Paul and I've been kicking it with them. Take note, I'm just trying to help. Peace.

You in SF? Can't tell what the first letter is really, I'm gonna assume it's a T. Work on that. The I needs work too. F to E connect works and looks good, but your other connects are boring and predictable. Just get creative with them and dont be afraid to experiment with new ideas.

@Hapa- Mmm...Like to actually see that properly sprayed to see if you could get the sharp edges like a caligraphy marker does. I know you can use caligraphy caps but surely you wouldn't want to always use them.

For me I'd change the style so it wasn't all straight with sharp edges cause usually tags have a flow to em.

way shorter. try NOVEM, NOVE, NOV... your name now is hella long. imagine throwin that up lol

Yeah one thing that I liked about my name in the beginning was that I could write it SUPER long like Mister November or super short like Nov. But I'm pretty sure I'm going to change my name.


Dont write Nov...

Thanks for supplying my motivation for the next month.

Last blue Hapa is the best. But the underline arrow shit doesn't work. If you do anything like that do what you did on the first tag.

Aint half bad. Bring down your first leg of N so it doesn't look like a V with a wack extension. and the last K is pretty good.

Try to be a lil simpler Mr.November. I used to try to connect everything together too, but for now right them all separately.

@Mutton - its always good to practice your alphabets but when you do it too much, you break the habit of making your letters flow with each other. Your muttonhead tag has some decent letters but the tag just has no flow to it what so ever.

@Hapa - keep trying. Let your letters com naturally instead of trying so hard and keep them all the same size.

@Qoog - Not sure if your name would work so much since all the letters are in a circle shape but its up to you. The Q is aight, keep working on a G though.

@Amos - Eh. Go simpler my dude. the second one is subpar but the first one is garbage, drop that shit.

@Chap - Crossing yourself out?

My only advice is add some flow to your M since your A, O, and S are curved as well.

Mr. November
11-16-2011, 05:28 PM
Spiltink I really like you're tag. It was really easy to read :cool:.

Am I atleast going in the right direction? :confused:

EDIT: Sorry for that other picture, it's my first time using this uploader thing hahaha

@spit i like your tag try doing a round type m(like that) instead of a M thats pointy on top it might flow better with your letters that are round, idk just a suggestion try it out

@mrnovember i would stay stick to writing yuck, your hands are kinda shaky take your time writing tag down
i would say go for a capital Y work on that and your u and c you have the right idea for the K but stay away from having that spiral shit
just go simple

41013

can i get a mo fuckin crit for once or at least some suggestions

PETER
11-17-2011, 02:35 PM
Gim: you are improving. Try making your S taller and not so flat on the bottom. Also try to get the top of the O to look like the top of the A and see how that works for you. Maybe just keep it going when you go from the C to O (don't pick up the marker). Just some thoughts not gospel

November: try not to pause so long so you don't get pimples on the corners. here's a little something for ideas.

Not sure that's a name you really want..

And there is a "Sick Boy" anyway and I think he/she tags with Miss 17 so that's pretty much off limits.
