    Okay Okay im shit as fuck on paint... the R now has a loop connected to the back bone. As i can't move the width of the letters you would then move the A to the left so theres more space between in and the N... then make the 2nd A wider and keep everything straight with the bars.

    Basically every bar needs to be equal or near to equal width. Each letters the same height (FOR NOW) and also the same width... it keeps everything consistant and helps you understand.


    For all you people who want to hate on the curve of the R i couldnt use the curve too on paint !

    Look at your sketch then look at those letters... any of your sketches against those letters. The clean, well structured simple always wins due to the fact that they haven't forced it into something that they don't have the skill to create. Thats why you get those mastered first then you start understanding about Bends in the bars and stuff which I'll show you tomorrow because it is late now

    And

I don't get it. isnt the point of a style to tweak letters so they have a little flare? its getting on my nerves actually.
    Example keep doing your thing these kids just say what gets crammed down there throats by these "graffiti experts" it seems you do have a decent understanding of letter structure and thats all you need.

    As a toy fresh out of the box I'm trying to take in everything I can, and the main thing I see posted here with the crits is obviously keep it simple, and stick to keyboard and basic letters. Is there anywhere I can go to hit up exact bar structure for every letter in the alphabet? Mainly I'm thinking of C, S, R, P, etc where there are lots of curves. Primarily I mean S since it's in my tag obviously. I'm having a real hard time doing basic, good looking S's. Ws, Es, and even Ys are pretty simple to me and using bars to create them is working well... but that damn S.

    Do simples like i told you too and you will learn how to pull those off after a while - arrows and shit are ages away from mastering and extra extensions.

    makehate - work on keeping your bars consistent, the right side of the H is smaller than the rest. as well as the middle of the T and N
