    rasm-i'm digging the A,M and C, but the R is bugging me, idk, maybe try fattening up the loop and the leg connection, and erase the line separating the left leg. just my two cents.

    decided to get all colourful and shit last night, i like how it turned out, excuse the shitty camera quality.
    funny shit.

    You should not do characters.
    Or buckets.
    You should also try adding some highlights to your pieces.

    there are highlights its just my shitty camera doesnt show them. also, the bucket is bullshit i agree, i need to work on drawing shit 3D.alot. crits on the piece though? also, rather than telling me not to draw tell me what im doing wrong for next time, like constructive and shit
    funny shit.

    Aces, finally someone giving solid crits. Thanks man! I know that Murph piece has it's flaws. I definitely need to redo the bottom of the R and the P and the H would probably look better with that little connection filled in. As for the Rasmica one, I was planning on dropping the bar under the C anyways, and I think the angle of the A is what makes it look like it's running away so much.

    @Messer, The character needs work and the bucket needs to be rounded off a bit in some places. I can't say much about that piece because I'm not sure what it says. Tell me what I'm reading and I'll try to throw you some pointers though.

    Thanks Rasm Oh and what Ribcage said is true...freestyles don't have erased pencil marks under them

    Messer - I'm not too sure what you're writing there but it looks something like HERTIES to me...I feel like you're hiding crappy letter structure by covering the piece in extensions...

    My Karcus piece for the battle...hasn't gotten a single vote but then again I finished the outline about 10 minutes before it was due and still had to throw the 3D on as well as the red accents in there. I'll color and finish it up later on tonight or maybe tomorrow and scan it so it's a clearer picture but anyone have any crits for me as it sits right now?

    I don't mean to be calling you out or anything, it's cool either you did or you didn't... I'm only curious, so don't get me wrong

    I guess you didn't learn how to read any graff that isn't strictly a keyboard letter then have you

    That should help. I won't say that my piece is perfect and I can see how the R can get lost and maybe the U as well. I know I went overboard with the addons but fuck it you have to progress sometime...I've been doing simples for too long to never have thrown an addon in there (notice I joined in '06?). Try giving some real crits and being constructive and not giving me just one little snood remark or if you can't do that then just leave it alone and don't give me crits...

    Well I guess it wasn't a true freestyle then, oh well, I said that because I didn't put much thought into the letters and basically just went with the flow.

    @Aces, that's pretty dope man. I feel like it would look way better if the letters were all along the same line instead of having the K on top of the A and stuff like that. People probably think it's a little too crazy the way it takes up the whole page. As far as the actual letters go, I like them. I would dig the R a little more if the right leg connected where the loop meets the left leg, but it's still solid. By the way, I had no problem finding the letters, although at first I thought it said Arcus because I didn't see the K.

    And I'm with you about the add-ons. I almost always do simples... check out what I've posted in this thread. My sketches almost never have extensions and when I do feel like adding them I don't think them through enough for them to flow. I joined in '07 but never posted, but I started writing in '05. Problem was for years I only sketched off-and-on so I didn't progress very fast.

    @Phat2, wow I've never even seen that pic before man. Did you post it in the painted pieces thread? It's pretty fucking crazy how yours is black and white and mine's a pencil sketch... and you have the the H forming the right side of the box and so do I. But yeah, no offense taken, I see why you were curious hahah

    Thanks Rasm yea the K on top of the A was supposed to end up looking like an S the way the letters flowed like this:


    Yea over the past year I haven't been sketching as much but up until then I had been sketching constantly (all throughout high school I'd usually bang out an piece every other class (2 hours). It took longer than usual cause I still paid attention in all AP classes and got B+/A-'s in all of em haha...it's just cause I didn't take notes I would just listen to the teachers and then kinda mindlessly do the pieces...

    Man I used to sketch in my AP classes too. Usually I'd choose a word that had to do with the topic we were learning about. High school was the shit; I miss being able to have a 4.0 with barely any effort.

    Anyways, here's some more simple shit. Not my best and needs touch-ups, but today's been a long one.

    aces? wtf is that, even when you put the letters in blue there i cant read it?? and i have a pretty abstract style myself.. my suggestion is the same as everyone else, untill you can rock a clean simple, do not try wild stuff

  14. #108674

    id agree, aqnd maybe put all your letters in line rather than all over the place.
    funny shit.

    Rasm- defo liking what i've seen so far
    messer- i do actually like the concept of the crazy ass chick with her feet hacked off but i think it will look better with practice, but yeah draw whatever the hell your mind feels like drawing and just keep doing it
    some of my bags of shite.....this is why i do characters better than letters....maybe i'm the kid that draws the charaters next to people pieces rather than does the letters lol

    A compliment from the battle thread from someone's opinion I value more than yours:

    SVEZAJEZA: Aces I think u needed a better photo of your sketch. its a good littles syle you got going there. THere is 3 different styles all going through this battle.

    ME: Thanks Sveza! Unfortunately I didn't get to color it and my scanner was on the fritz...too bad I couldn't enter it like it is now (even though my red marker started dying on me haha):


    Also I agree it isn't the best sketch I've done seeing as it's the first piece I've done in about a year...Oh and what makes you think I can't rock a simple? You haven't even seen one of them...

    I don't think it's fair to think he influenced it. They're just simples, I got plenty of absolute garbage from befre I went to this site, and the E is the same ( plus or minus shitty extensions. I think that's the first time i bit anything and it was just because how well it went I think. I'll definately be working on condensing my pieces =)

    Aces, work on coloring in the lines man! I'm sure you spent time putting that thing together so when you color why isn't it as important? Your 3D is scibbled in.
    Other than that, besides being a bit abstract not bad.
    Erk, I always like seeing your drawings but that bottom bit is not so great imo.
