    ^^^Oooo thats sexy. I like it. Keep it up mate.

    Since my camera was made in mexico, you can't see that there's an outline. I had trouble making the n's similar, but after a few attempts I got them to be somewhat close. You like?

    The N bars are inconsistent in a bad way man, The E has a random tilt, like it had one too many to drink The bottom extention is uneeded as well as the top. I like the O but it doesn't match. The last N is much better but could still use more work.

    There's a lot wrong with it but it's definately on to something. Try working a simpler version of that.

    no one gives a shit about your lightning blue outline. last N wouldnt be THAT bad if it didnt have those random notches, but it still is smaller then the O. haha and i thought the second letter was a C. practice your simples, learn some letter structure.

    Shroomsh- those names looking siick, i like that crazy hectic background you got going on.

    FRY, dude, look at his letters, and notice how his are good and simple, but have style to it, because he tweaked them slightly and in the right places. he didnt add a shit ton of notches or extension connection wanna be wildstyle shit. practice your simples and itll pay off.

    dont post it up right away. keep it. look at it. study it. ask yourself how you can improve it. Think, bar width, baseline, negativespace, consistency in letters basically. and post up once youve done ten hundred of them... haha nah, but do more then one. try to improve on your own a bit. you cant fuck up too hard if you just write it like NEON.

    Edit:
    god i am up way too late on this shit.

    @Shroomish, nice work man. What pens did you use on that? The S on the Hoeski one is slightly squished but besides that it's pretty dope. I'm sure your friends will be impressed.

    @Fry, man you need to lose the extra bits and notches. It says NEON? You need to make the middle bar of the E much more defined because it looks like a C. Actually, it is a C.

    It's past 1am here but I couldn't sleep at this hour if I tried.

    Here's some random bullshit for talking.

    Think I did pretty good on this personally, Things I noticed and am going to fix though: I foorgot the blue around the top left star thing (I know what it's called, not how it's spelled) . I bit the O from that Xerox peice which BTW I thought was dope. But I fucked it up filling over the "Exchange" I wrote in it. Pardon the angle of the shot.

    Just a side note, those recognition pens from micheals are fucking amazing.

    Actually it says KAP, just to let you know.

    @DaFugg, You gotta push those letters closer together and stop biting haha. Looks like Seder influenced your E a little bit. Just keep pounding out simples.

    @Flat, This is basically the same thing I always see from you. I wish you would lose the random extensions like the one on the bottom of the T, and never draw the heart-shaped bottom of the A again, but oh well. I'd widen the horizontal bar on the F a little bit and definitely work on those handies. It's not too bad overall though.

    ahah i always use the heart shapein my pieces, i used to despise it, but now its more like my message to all the tryhard toys that try to be brutal thinking the graffiti is violence related tell ing them that they will never be as good as me until they stop trying to be something they arent, or something like that

    Oh I mean if you have some sort of message you're spreading with it that's one thing, but for the most part it's just people biting the I from the Flava font on graffiticreator.net

    Here's an unfinished freestyle sketch for talking.

    yeah, i agree with rasm, if youre actually interested in becoming an artist, graffiticreators the worst place to go

    I wish those fonts were displayed on the streets instead of the net where toys bite them and run wild.

    hhahah too true

    I wish those fonts would disappear lol

    For some reason the K's, R's, and S's are bothering me but I can't quite put my thumb on it...They just don't seem to fit well I guess but other than that it's nice and well put together.

    Like everyone said lose the little notches, make the E more like an E and try to keep both the height of your letters the same throughout the piece as well as the width of your bars (at least for now...)

    Not too bad there...Nice and simple (although I'm not really a fan of the box around the S you got going on there but other than that it's got potential

    I could see this reading WLY haha but really you got potential with the whole 3D thing. I've tried for so long and I can do some "eh" 3D stuff but this is definitely way better...work some purposeful letters into a new 3D sketch and see how it goes!

    To add to your list, the E looks really weird with with the top and bottom bars almost touching so try angling them differently. Also get your letters closer together and lose the scribbles over the red. Lastly work on keeping your 3D going in a uniform direction or to a vanishing point if you know how to do that (See the 3D on top of the vertical bar of the E compared to the 3D on top of your O? Notice the difference between a slant like "/" and one like "_". Glad to see you're at least keeping it simple though

    The bottom arrow on the F makes it look a bit like an S so consider dropping/adjusting that and the bottom arrow on the T makes it look either like a really shitty "h" or an alright "R" so work that out too. I'm not too sure about the extension off the right of the A either but don't really know what to do with it haha...

    The top of the left part of the M looks really strange the way it connects, the U looks good though but then on the RPH they each have one part that doesn't flow with the piece. The R has the arrow like thing on the bottom, the P has the bar that angles in towards the vertical bar and the connector to the bottom of the R, and the H has that connector to itself on the left side...Other than that it's nice and simple and flows pretty well at least

    Looking pretty good but I don't really see a need for the horizontal bar on the middle left of the M there and the one under the C doesn't really fit with the style...The A on the end looks like it's trying to run away from the rest of the piece so push that closer in. All in all it's not bad but at a second glance the S, I, and C don't really flow with that style so just something to work on...
