@MM Nice : I agree, there is much to be learned from philly style. I'd really like to learn how to do those really tall skinny tags that almost look like throw ups!

True story man. Ive been trying a few different tall skinny tags out but nothin really seems to work for me yet.
so far, that unreadable scribble on the previous page is the best ive gotten.. even large scal on a wall doesn't look too shabby

MN Nice
03-09-2012, 01:02 PM
Its kind of inevitable to learn unless you're from there. I mean, you could look up photos of philly tags and try to see how they get there letters done, but its also like seeing a japanese tag in america since probably no one else in your area does em.

My recommendation is scrap the philly and go around your nearest big city for a day and flick photos of tags. The best inspiration is of your peers.

haha i am in the 'big city' for my area. but respect guys, dossbog and MN thanks for the imput.. probably won't scrap the philly idea, just put it on hold until i come up with better handstyle and tags first

dankbudz
03-12-2012, 09:52 PM
lose the top right extension on the K, just make it a single bar. and make the horizontal bar on the T just one bar. the Top K is better than the bottom. and don't flair it in like 8 different ways. try and get an even line by keeping your hand the same distance from the wall the whole time. and go hit up a real wall.

Beko
03-12-2012, 10:43 PM
what do you mean by not flaring it so much?

Beko, its not a font, its just 4 letters with all different style to it. You want uniformity with your letters.

PETER
03-13-2012, 08:31 AM
seder: on that yellow highlighter page the tall boys on the bottom left are dope. try doing your R with a horozontal piece under the circle and bring the leg back in. I think it will give it more symetry. I'm loving it though. Your hands are coming on nice.

dankbudz
03-13-2012, 10:27 PM

notmikegiant
03-14-2012, 03:23 AM
@ dank - sucks you changed your name, loved those simples, I prefer the style with the red pen page, personally.

trying to make it more simplistic, i know theres some unnecessary extensions but im just throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks. crits are always appreciated, wrote my buddies name phase one to get the hang of other letters, for the record hes well aware of everyone who writes phase

58186


forgot to mention, i like the bottom right bar on the x flaring out, a simple x just feels boring to me

ven0m
03-14-2012, 07:15 AM
everything's gonna feel boring to you when you're just starting out, every beginner wants to rock a T-kid wildstyle at the end of his first week of paper practice. but the truth is that bearing with boring simple styles for as long as needed is that price to pay if you're after perfection. all the pros paid it... every good guy here on the forums has paid it. I am constantly paying it. and you sure arent going to get a freebie coz u managed to spend 3 days in a row without poopies in your diapers... so join the club and get ready for a storm of crits that you better accept for your own good

Do it in one motion. I can tell by the top points of your letters that you're doing them separately.

03-17-2012, 11:22 PM
I know right?!
I think it has to do with the way I hold a pen/pencil/marker.
I just can't go top to bottom, the way that you're supposed to. My hand stops around halfway through the letter and it's awkward for me to continue the curvy flow of the letter that way.

dankbudz

y'all think the L is too undistinguished?

SynOne
03-18-2012, 12:05 AM
Dank I think the bottom right one is distinguished enough. I would read that as a L, but the other two I would have read as an O, just make sure that the L and the O have obvious different widths.

@ toy - you need more tips then just the letter R, look at your keyboard and duplicate those letters, and do it on actual paper.

@ venom - dig the first one, really clean.

dropped a lot of the bars and nonsense i was doing before, crits are always appreciated - also for me if i dont drag the X then it makes the whole tag look kind of stocky, let me know if im full of shit

59433

Skaep
03-19-2012, 12:57 AM
@shay70 i would define your p a bit more and get the e's to match the size of the rest of the letters

@toy listen to these guys^^

@notmikegiant good start imo (don't take me for an exact example) but practice it over and over on paper, fill a notebook or whatever. Just write it over and over, you'll get a flow and tigheten up the letters. And just in general try to practice by writing mostly with your elbow, you dont always get a spot or chance to rest your wrist on something. This is what Ive been doing:

Kehm, your style of 'gase' is flowing like that of 'ease'
Try extending the bottom of the S a bit towards the A, and you need to make your G look less like an E, i seriously thought you were trying to write ease.

Also juke, your style is sick, but if i have to tell you one more time to rotate that god damn photo i am going to rape your mother.

And peon.. I dont quite know whats going on there, but i dont think i care to. Clean that shit up.

KehmONE
03-22-2012, 03:09 PM
Haha, at first I was like "ease, wtf is he talking about?" Then I looked at my G again... makes sense.
I'll try changing the bar on the G up a bit. Although, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna stick with SEGA.

sup heads its been a while since i posted around here, ima upload some flicks soon up here. just some advice for everybody who just started posting on this thread recently and looking for help.... don't try to bite someone else's style or look up these alphabets on the internet... just start to write your name down simple as fuck... try fucking with each letter to see which flows with what... cop a notebook and fill it up with just tags.. write your shit over and over till you get sick of it and you'll start to develop

oh and another thing i have always hated about this thread... don't post fucking garbage ass tags up here and say "crits?" you shouldn't be relying about getting a crit here you should be practicing and practicing instead of posting and posting

Axil, everyone starts somewhere as you know. You need to look at more graffiti. Different areas have different styles. Talk a bike ride or something, see what the people you want your stuff to look like are doing.
Don't bite, but get inspiration. Spend $30 on some graff mags that you can just have laying around. I keep them around like spare lighters!
Keep your markers/blackbook out at all times. NEVER put them in a drawer or under your bed. Make it as simple as possible for you to pick up a marker and doodle/sketch.
Some of the things I have done that I am most proud of originated from a stoned doodle I did while watching a movie or something.

Axil

Getting there, ever think about going with a "KZ" instead of an "X" for your name?
You'll still get the same sound when saying the name, the K and the Z are by far more steezy than an X any day, and they're leaps and bounds easier to work with for letter structure.

I've noticed that the X is whats hurting me the most, would you reccomend doing a capital E instead? Ill try with a KZ tonight, the reason i hadn't messed with them before is because i know there's a SPEC SPECS SPEK etc, still worth a shot though.

thanks for the crits.

also who carries a fucking paintbrush around?

PETER
03-26-2012, 04:54 PM
try bringing the horizontal part of your e down a little bit... hell try a capital. it's good to have a few different tags in your bag of tricks. Just keep playing with the letters until it feels and looks right. Post up a few as you go. While it's good to have people give insight, what is most important is that you like it.

by the way.... I'll fuck with some brush tags. a brush in a plastic baggy and a jar of paint or ink that seals tight. you can get some cool effects and flick shit around it etc. I have never seen anyone else do it really. just not the best for some blatant out in the open vandalisim unless you're gutsy like that or you're just going to do one in a hot spot and roll out. But you can do some cool shit with a brush.... japanese caligraphy style.

Ok, I'm going to go through this very slowly, so try to keep up..
A. Your R... Sucks, there is no bottom bar so it looks like a P, lay of on that fairly shit on the bottom.
B. Just write your A correctly, don't do it backwards. Ever.
C. The S.... Round out the bottom curves so it looks like an s
D. And the "K". Were you fuckin high when you did it?!? It looks like a T with some swirly shit on the cross bar.
*just keep it simple. Start off by just writing RASK in hour regular handwriting. Do that several hundred times, then put the SLIGHTEST speck of style in your letters. Try it.

He's going for a West Coast gothic look dumbass ^ work on your own shitty tag before bashing. To be honest, his is better than yours.
Yes I'm familiar with west coast styles, just helping him along. Dumbass. I am working on my style, as should all of us. It's all a matter of opinion really...

@ Axil - stay away from adding any style to the letters, i get that you want to have a sick tag. I practice constantly and my simple handstyle still isnt good enough to start adding flavor. keep it up

@ HESK - looks good, very clean, is that a halo though? tell me if im wrong but i thought that was only added if youre dead or something like that

Maybe it's just a local thing, but the writers I know that have been caught stop using a halo. Or I might be thinking of something else, who the fuck knows I'm so fucking high on drugs to get rid of this pneumonia that I can't think straight.

We tell every toy on here literally every week to go simple. just fill up a whole notebook with your name in your normal handwriting but adding some lean and bends every once in a while.

Dank: becareful with the loop on the end of your M. It makes it look like SELDONA. Try bringing the horizontal part of your lower case E closer to the bottom of the letter. Your hand's getting better. Maybe try leaning your letters on each other a little.
SOL: The top two on the left and the one on the bottom left are decent. The rest are weak. I think the one with the curly S has the most potential.
Koolaid: Let's see the tag without the extra shit. I can't read it to even begin to crit aside from it looks mediocre.

Remove the Arrow and the 3 dots and Remove the star from the O and Make the M And the G Look abit more like this M - G so more keyboard kinda letter on them 2 and then u should have a better tag

Crits on my new Tag + Name Please

Restart- get rid of all the shit, the star, the arrow the quotes, the dots. write the word with plain capital letters, then write it again, but ad style to only one letter, maybe the A, keep trying style on a different letter but keeping the rest simple.
adding style to ever letter and all the other little things youve added around it kills it, just keep it siimple for now, get a catalogue with the glossy pages, and just keep writing it, on every page, the marker works alot nicer on tthese type of pages, and lasts longer.

Row-try keep all the letters a similar size,, allyour letters kinda fit like a jigsaw, try writting it in different kinds of hand writting, like block, joined all the crap, then combine the letters from different hand writting, until you come out with something gnarly, id lose the thick underline too

Those curled R legs are kind of hard to get at first, and usually look better at the end of a word because people cramp it up and make it look like a B.

2. Letters with the same height throughout are nice.

Klutz
04-06-2012, 08:40 PM
Ya, i think i know what your saying. Like what letters should i mellow out a bit? The "k" and the "z" are basically the only things that are really have a ton of style in them? or do you see more?

Axil
04-06-2012, 08:53 PM
Try Doing a Styled K and then simple ultz or do a simple Kult And then a styled Z and keep them all around the same height :) and if u cant do anything with the K replace it with a C and this is just a ideas maybe remove the z so its just Kult or Cult And Look at this video it might help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me3DlEWwxWc
