    No, you are a toy.. That's really bad.
    You both need to do simples and bars.

    Thats i because his letters have no structure... you've jumped right into trying making something wild and somewhat artistic when it clearly looks like you dont understand about the basic simple letters first cause even the small simples on there aren't appealing. Copy KEYBOARD letters and create them with even width bars instead of jumping in to something where people who don't know a clue about this stuff may think its dope because of fancy colours etc @ Dcicfhbimv

    50 Cent - The arrow placements in someplaces like off the side of that N are pointless - the sketch would look alot better if you just kept the letters without any necessity's as at the minute it all looks forced, however you need to watch your bar with and structure aswell but if you keep that simple you will get to where you understand where to add stuff in through time... don't just jump straight into it mate.

    Ok, here. i did some simpler stuff,

    you really dont understand the term "simple" do you?
    i suggest you take a weekend and actually read past posts in this very thread, even if you just go back the last 500 or so pages you will see definitions on basically every other page explaining to people who bite off more than they can handle what a simple is, where to start, how to progress from a good basic starting point rather than trying to polish a piece of shit
    when you are at your stage in the game it takes less time to start over from scratch than it does trying to correct everything that's wrong in your pieces.
    spend some time reading and doing some legwork and i am sure things will improve, but i doubt it will happen if ya dont go back to simples

    Thanks man I'll work on it. I'm trying to come up with some more unique letter forms. So its kinda a trail and error thing.

    definetly need work on structure like anarone said, idk if i would go as far as to tell you to bite your keyboard yet though cause these the only things ive seen, at this point id say lose all the color and all the extra shit and focus on the letters

    So by simple you mean something like this? Disregard the extremely crooked lines. I was trying to quit cigs when i did this and i had very shaky hands.
