    Graf: As others have already said, read the New To Graffiti Thread, apply your studies to your sketches and get a concept of what is 'good', then post up what you think is acceptable. You might look into a name change too, lol.

    Neet: Watch your bar widths and try to keep them proportionate to one another. Also, ditch the add-ons and extensions for now- let them come with practice rather than forcing them. Work on your flow a bit by incorporating similar letter characteristics though. I'd also avoid coloring and using fills for now considering that ink could be put to use on something once you've improved on your style.

    Again, trying to work with these letters, but it's a tough combination lol. Crits plz

    smuk- straighten out those letters a bit, kinda looks sloppy. make your 3d a little more even...your on the right track.

    Havek-I think that shits tight. maybe make the stuff to the left of the T a little smaller, i feel like its stealing the T's space kinda. Looks like you kind of ran out of room.

    Lein-the I looks like an F


    Im working on a new name, Slek (sounds like sleek). Tell me what you guys think, which one you like better? (i'm over sharpies, wish i could afford something else)

    I feel you, but it's not my name. I'm working on a sketch for a friend of mine overseas, so I'm forcing myself to find a way that works.

    Any more crits would really help me out

    Dunsy: As clean as all of your coloring looks, you still need to work on your letters. For example, I don't even know what the first letter on that first sketch is. The E in that same sketch is hurtin' too. Try using straight bars, then gradually work in bends, then proportional changes once you've got those down. You've got the coloring down well, but that's the easy part. Now start sketching in pencil only and putting more practice into your letters.

    wish i'd planned this one out on a bigger bit of paper
    crits on the simples plz??


    Trek- i like that style keep trying it

    drop- i think your e looks too sqwashed on the the green on but a fat bit of 3d and a bit mor spacing it'd be cool beans man
    dunsy- love the yellow and orange ones and your monkey is cool but i think he'd be better a bit lighter brown so you could give his boby more shape..but i dig the bubbly shizzle yo lol

    Its been awhile, gonna roll with the tots till I'm back on track again. Yah, my lines are raw, and my proportions are kinda fucked in the second one, but my colouring seems to have improved with neglect.

    NEED ADVICE ON A "I". Can't seem think of anything to do with it.





    same: Shits weird, son. With that out of the way the 3d is really messed, I think you should hit up classic simples. Imitate a font, learn how to use bars. I like the top line better then the name. You'll work it out, man.

    Dunsy: Second picture, top throw. Roll with that, mad potential. Other stuff is meh.

    Snuk: Stop. Drop. And Roll on over to simples and bars.

    Trek: Just nit picking... Trim it down a little, show off the structure of the letters more. Make the T give the R a little space, and the E is feelin' pretty crowded to. Pretty solid though, keep it up.

    Neet: Feels way forced, man. Relax, make it your own.

    Lein: Hit the simples, work plain letters until they are so boring it hurts to do them. Bending is like puberty, you can't force that shit to happen on your schedule.

    Telos- Try and get those bar withs consistent throughout the piece, try and get the letters about the same size (the L is mad tiny while the S is huge)

    Scotchtape- I really like how the bubbles came out on the second one- the letter forms are really creative.

    Strange- Thats a really unique style, it looks good as regular letters, I suggest trying to play around with those letters a little bit-tweek them, bend them whatever add some flavor into them

    Dunsey- I really like that monkey and the background/forcefields you have there, I'd suggest working on the letters a little more since those(characters/Background) Grab the most attention compared to the letters

    Snuk- I'd have to agree with the others- beat the hell out of those solid keyboard letter for a while

    Trek- That's an ill piece but while the TRE are all leaning to the right I feel the K is leaning more straight up or to the left more which kinda thorws the flow of the piece off a little bit--IMO

    Squared- The 3D and coloring is really nice- I don't know if it is a style choice but I think the E and N are smaller then the L and I (I think it is)- that and the L seems to heavily overlap the second letter more so than the rest of the letters

    NEET- again imma have to go with the others the N is huge and the E's both look squished inbetween the N and T. The letter forms themselves are goos but if you take apart each letter individually I think you'd find they'd be different sizes compared to one another.
