    you need to practice your letter structure, cleanliness, flow, and bar consistency heaps before attempting to sketch something similar to these... you're about 10 steps ahead of yourself.
    main advice is take it real easy for now and practice the things I mentioned, even if you have to go about sketching loads of simples and straight letters (as boring as they might sound... I know all about it).
    good luck if you accept crits. and tough luck if you don't. (in that case you probably will go on thinking everyone's hating on you and that your style is fresh/doesn't need fixing and be king in your own mind's world)

    funny you mention that i was looking for exactly that because i'm not confident in my letter structure those crazy looking pieces were from about 3-4 yrs ago. from what you see do you suggest going all the way back to block letters or only back to straight letters. i know i'm not good, i fugre if i keep seeing myself as not good i will push myself to improve more. by bar consistency do you mean the height of each of the letters? and flow you mean similar/matching letter style? cleanliness i can assume you mean simple things like crispier lines. 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?
