    Jokz: Nice and clean man. The only thing that I think would make it look better is if you actually connected those portions of the letters, rather than making breaks in them. On the top two, they look a little 'choppy' if you know what I mean. Some of the bars look out of place, but together, it doesn't look all that bad.

    Snore: Work on that S a little bit and watch out on that left bar on your N- it kinda looks like an h, so keep an eye on that. Also, try using that letter style without the cracks for now and play around with drop shadows, 3d, etc. and you've got yourself a solid simple.

    Another quickie I whipped out at work :/ Crits please

    snore- its good but the indent thing at the bottom of the s ruins the letter
    lein- maybe make the bottom of the left and right leg of the n meeting bigger?

    Changed up the way things sit over all, like it, but the G still doesn't sit right... and the I isn't there, obviously. The little sketchbook rocks, but its to small for anything but charactors...




    I like my rough lines, everything else just feels wrong.

    gumonshoe: Pretty solid man. S's are a bitch, just gotta work on the letter a little bit.

    Jokz: Your good man, keep with it.

    Melo & Stot: Check these.

    Bite these, chew these, regurgitate these. Ignore the little accents on the letters for now (the the little decorative bits hanging off end points on the letters.)
    Take note of the "bars" that make up each letter. ie. A M is made of 4 "bars", one making up each upright and two making the V in the middle. Think of every letter as being made up of little rectangles, and draw them that way.

    Thats the only lesson I'm giving you until you listen.

    To repeat what I've said once before, Bending is like puberty. It happens naturally on its own, you can't force it to happen. I was once where you are right now, if I listened to advice like this I would probably be chillin' in the big boy threads by now. Instead I stumbled and learned on my own like your trying to do, and by shear force of will I walked away with a dope handstyle (and weak everything else). I got frustrated and quite twice, but graffiti never quite me. So here I am now, chillin' with the toys once again. Learning, working, and TAKING GOOD ADVICE from people who know what their talking about. Just fucking do what we tell you, guys, we know from experience this is how to learn it best.

    I realize that, but you don't understand bending, so you are INCAPABLE of doing more advanced stuff. It'll hit you like a epiphany, suddenly, while your fucking with boring ass letters one day.

    But you're failing at it. No beef, I'm trying to help you. You've gotta rock simps before you can do the things you're trying to pull off. Stop sketching above your head and realize that you've gotta learn to crawl before you can walk man.

    No beef man, I had this exact same conversation before.

    Edit: From YOUR side.

    ok i understand. But what do you mean by simple? A complete straight computer letter style? I can do that. trying to do more andvanced stuff wont hurt.

    Not necessarily 'complete straight computer letter style', but something much less simple than what you're shooting for. You want to shoot for a look that represents what the actual letter looks like rather than adding extensions that hide the structure of the letters if you know what I'm saying. Simples are easily readable, clean, and accurately project the structures of letters. Play around with proportionate bars and gradually work in bends once you understand that. Then you can tweak the bars even more once you gain a better understanding of the forms. Just don't move too fast- it's a gradual process that takes a lot of time and dedication.
