    @ EXI. Big improvement dude. Not sure what that means considering they are DAMN simple. But that shit looks a lot fresher. My advice would now be to forget the fills and 3D, and work on pullin the bars on those simple letters. Just a little pull for now, lol.

    Holy shit... Tryin' not to double post or whatever but there's a new piece up each time I finish posting.

    @ SYFER. Feelin' it. I think you're 'F' should stand up a bit more, though I know why you've got it leaning, to get rid of the space it creates. Stand it up a bit more so that it does have a small space, about the same size as the other spaces in the piece. It should look fine. I'd change the 'R' too, but it's just a personal preference. Try kickin' the leg of the 'R' up, then break it down, and kick it out. Sort of match it with the kick out of the 'S' on the opposite end of the piece. Just my two cents.

    Ay Tofe I like how you blended those warm colors in the 3D it looks nice especially on the N. I like the caligraphy ecept for that last R fallin off, and I hate that O. A normal one would have been way stronger. Other shit needs tweaking though.
    If there is hope, it lies in the writers.

    it was my first time blending colors like that for 3d..going to start doing that effect more often,and yea i agree a normal "o" would have worked a whole lot better

    Hey, first two tries from simps to pulling and getting my own style

    what you guys think

  17. #104377

    A LOT better than what you were postin' before mang.
    Now you understand what these guys are sayin' 'bout stayin' way simple?
    It's not that your shit wasn't simple, it was that it lacked structure.

    Even though in graff you fuck wit' letters and make 'em look crazy,
    they still gotta have structure, otherwise they just look like some bunk ass illegible shit.
    It's also the reason why a crazy ass piece that most people can't read
    can be read by those who know how graff works.

    Your next step would be to spend an absurd amount of time practicing that shit.
    Develop your own style. Pull the letters whichever way feels natural to you.
    You can refer to other people's letters and pieces,
    just make sure you maintain the letter structure.

    Once you master that you can move on to crazier shit.

    Thanks man, I can tell what you guys ment, I was doing too much things to the words so it was distracting it from the point of the wrod. And Yeah I'm gunna be spending at least a month or two on just getting my own style down, I really think it's gunna come out pretty good, only problem is that O's and P's are pretty awkward to me to right, I'm gunna see what SNT looks like tomorrow
