    sorry for the brightness on the g, think you can still make it out though. i know the fill is pretty weak, havent really worked on them too much. anything else?

I'm willing to take what ever is said into consideration except if someone says to stop.
    by bar consistency, I mean that the parts on your letters need to be same width or if you must flare them (increase in size as they go), their enlargement must make sense. and by flow I mean the overall fluidity of the whole word, how each letter fits in with the other to give out a certain final form that looks nice and not some collage of letters with different styles thrown together to make a chaotic mixture of bars and shiiiit...
    don't stop. but you gotta learn to crawl before you can walk. know what I mean? I say go to the intermediate thread for some inspiration, see how people work, see what techniques they use to get steezy pieces and give that a shot... but simpler, with NO extensions.

    Nothing I particularly like, just some stuff from about 3 months ago. Most were never finished.

    the only thing i like about that is the fill. the letters need some work. and the ST looks kinda awkward like hover hands awkward. random question are you left handed?

    you need to go back to the basic of the basics and do complete sketches, not some fast shit you do in 3 to 5m, they don't need to be perfect in colouring or lines, but try making it look like you care about what you r doing

    That actually took me a little while i sketched it once and the pen fucked up the lines, so i did it again took like 9 minutes cus i kept spazing about my lines and letters. it looks under done cus i'm out of markers to fill/outline/effect/etc.
    I get what your saying, though,
