^needs more arrows on the 1st 1
@webs - try to get some consistancy in the bars, and more uniform letter structure, otherwise I believe you're on the right track !
@delyte - simplify! all the extra addition on the lettering is just gaudy and draws away from the piece as a whole... notice centrysam and how he rarely colors his pieces, he's focusing on lettering which is an essential to good graff, no matter how sick your coloring is you can't augment lack of motivation towards lettering... hell I get bored sometimes halfway thru pieces just stick at it
@centry - I really like your bombs/throwies... I'm not too good at them myself so yeah I can't give much crits in that department.. as for the piece worry less about extensions and focus on lettering imho. not that you have bad lettering its just they could flow more >.<
but still at least everyone's making a stride forward and not giving up
suppsoed to be a caricature of myself... crits? besides the bulbous nose hahaha
The secret to charecters is...Shadow, when u make bold lines its hard to blend features, i know making hard lines is tempting but the less lines u make the better its gonna look!
Hi, I'm Sketch, here's some of my blackbook pieces from over the years;

sketchamus- some of your characs are dope as hell, but from what i saw most of your letters were lacking structure, even on that last "ramoe" one, the letters (even though they have structure) were lacking overall bar consistency. in short; start off simple
YOooooo for the kids started off or trying to find there steeez start off simple work from your tag
REMEBER you tag must be just as fresh as your peice.
Also check out some of my stencils that ive posted in the toy stencil thread if you get a chance, ive been designing and making stencils for about 9 years, im completely addicted to it.

sketchamus: i like a lot of your characters! i cant really comment on everything because you posted so many flicks! I just wanted to
say itd be nice if you tried a full-color, full-page drawing (i mean that as in combining letters with chracters)! as far as the "Mine"-flick is concerned: work on how to make every letter match the style
youre drawing in. The E looks a bit off imo. It feels like youve chosen the easy way out with that letter. take it as constructive crit!
This sketch got deleted in the other BB thread, so i guess Im gonna post it in here to see what you guys think! i havent colored it yet, but here it is so far:
it reads cubes.

Lol this dude is fun to draw, I forget what show he was on though
@Kocka- Start simple, man. Honestly, it doesn't look good in my opinion.
thanks for the reply man, but ive been writing for some time now :P. im just posting it here because it isnt finished, and the blackbook thread in the main forums doesnt allow unfinished pieces?
Ive been commented on by a lot of fairly well known artists from the benelux, and did some collabs :P. Im not trying to sound cocky, but Im not asking whether its good or not, Im just asking what you guys think..
though i do agree, now that i look at it, I actually dont like it that much either. Im just gonna do a new one.
I posted this already in the main blackbook thread:
any thoughts on this then maybe?
keep gettin up man
but u know, a lotta sketches look bad without color, that last one would've just looked like a big bunch of mangled bars and extensions had it not had colors to define where the letters are.
I wouldn't wory about it tho... you cant win em all, u know that eh :> heh
you could stand to make the U bigger
i dig that fill.
