    Stigma- I take it that says atone? if so here are my thoughts...
    The overall sense of flow is good, it seems symetric. But I think the structure is lacking. The middle bar of the A is too much make it smaller and not overlapping the right bar of the A. I don't get why there is like a middle horizontal bar thing in the middle of your T, thats wack. The bar in the middle of the O is...not cool. Middle bar of the E is wack too. Take your time clean up things, its just overall sloppy. But hey its a cool idea, rework it.

    Meko- Good shit! Lovin that style, keep it up.
    Tofe- The drop shadow's a bit messy, the top bar on the T is a little wacked imo and not really feeling the O either. The throwie's pretty nice though and so is the 3D.
    Stigma and Astro- Letter structure...work on it...
    Romero- Not too bad the curves on the S and the U seem a bit necessary though.



    SEAZ finally got something with more than just SE or SZ lol I've been having a hard time with my A's with any style I've worked on but I like this one. Any thoughts? Oh and the outline's only blue/black because its a blue marker over the orange lol...

    romero - looks dope. got some originality in there. refreshing
    blacktodafuture - it'd be cool to see some new stuff looking like the old stuff
    stigma - no 3d?
    tofe - i like the effects
    aces - try making your lines cleaner and you'll look legit. maybe tweak the e a little?
    Meko - legit as always

    right on
    3d can really pull a piece together
    the colors on yours blend pretty close
    what markers you use?

    the answer to how to drop shadow and 3d is fairly simple
    you all know how to turn a square into a cube, yea?


    well the idea is that you draw the same exact shape slightly offset in an arbitrary direction. then you draw in diagonal lines from the matching corner, right? Notice how the diagonal lines are all the same length and all parrallel to each other. that is crucial for the optical illusion of depth to take place.

    so a drop shadow is when you draw the same dimensioned shape offset evenly and then do not connect up the edges with the parralell bars (the diagonal lines on the cube for instance). and simple no vanishing point 3d is acheived by connecting up those edges, case in point the cube pic

    romero lookin good

    saint has the right idea. your slackin on makin those diagonal connectors parrallell, do it, itd look 10x better. and nice attempt at the vanishing point one yo, shit came out damn near propper.

    which reminds me i forgot to speak on vanishing point 3d. the idea here is that instead of starting with evenly offsetting the image in a specific direction, you start with a single point that you determine to be your vanishing point. you then draw straight lines from that point to every edge that faces said point. once that is done decide how hefty you want the 3d to be by picking a specific lenght for the vanishing point lines, and then shortening them all to be the same length. after this is done, try your damndest to approximate what the shape of your object would look like going back into the page and with that in mind connect the new short ends of the vanishing lines as close to perpendicular to those vanishing points and as parrallel to the object as possible

    gitter done
