    ^you have to bend and use the bars even when you move away from keyboard letters man, you cant just draw keyboard letters and then fuck around with them. keep the widths consistent, the middle of the s and top of the p and r are way thin compared to other parts


    quick sketch in class

    @Skope2

    both those sketches are def improvements from your previous works. good stuff man, keep going.
    as for crits, the D in the first sketch looks like a U, mainly cuz you left the top two bars separate, the line between them needs to go so that they merge and become one curved bar. look out for that one. and unlike what the other mans said, personally, I dig the big 3D on the E and would advise you to enlarge the rest of the letters' 3Ds to match that of the E's instead of shortening out the E's out to match the rest of the letters. maybe use a vanishing point at the far right of the piece to slant your 3D's lines a bit to give the whole piece a bit of depth. i reckon it would look MUCH doper than isometric 3D going in one parallel way.
    keep developing

    Youth not bad, the Y is good I think, I still think your H needs work.

    New stuff, only really get to sketch during class, just doing quickies.... The D looks shitty, I'mma fix the bars on it later, got fucked up when I tried to darken around it.

    Splrt - much improvement, but the 3D/shadow is off at points, also a few of your bars are a tad messy still, but it still is a lot better.

    two more, tried to give em more flow





    youth-dope style, i like your colorful fills a lot

    splrt-better, but still not there, you need to do some more keyboard letters to learn how your letters are made up of different bars then incorporate the same bars into your pieces, a few of your things just dont quite line up right

    erkl-those are all pretty good, although i hope the first and last say urkl because if not that is some kinda fucked E

    thanks. ye they got that U in em. yo the first flick is clean but you gotta get rid of the elongated extensions on the N, S, & E. just shorten em up and you'll be good to go.

    thanks bro. i have some crits for yours,
    -it's well structured and it's good you didn't go all try hard on it
    -dope character next to it
    -the fill is really interisting
    but you should of done it bigger since it looks like something that would be on a train

    KAWT, that piece is incredibly messy... Take it alot simpler. Drop all of the whack extensions, they mess up your letter structure and make it hard to see whats a letter and what isnt. Your bars are also very uneven, you should work on the proportions a bit more.
    I cant stress this enough, those extensions are ruining the piece.

    Noise - what Urks said, the first one is nice but not the extensions
    Kawt - Start over completely and use bars and/or keyboard letters
    WMD - Some serious flaws in it, 3D is not correct at all. The letters themselves need work, use bars, and I hate to say it but the karak is not dope as KAWT claims....

    I like them, but not the last one, first one is iffy too. I would say the second one is the best but the A is slightly confusing.

    New old stuff, basically just tried to fix some of my old doodles.

    Ds are killing me lately, hard to find good ways to manipulate the bars but still retain the letter.... If that makes sense....
