lol at the second one
tourney piece battle .... tear it apart lol other than my drop shadow on the c and a being purple is because my black marked died after the g and e.
FEDUP, dont bother with slanting your letters in opposite direction or changing up which letters overlap which, keep it traditional for the time being. and keep using a pencil, no point in using colour. and definitely dont start messin around with 3d overtop of other letters. simple simple simple or ya wont get anywhere. ive said it before and ill say it again, look at your keyboard or any text on this page to see how the letter is created. copy this and try your best to put 3d on it: F E D U P
lets see what you can come up with playboy!
I took some of your advice on board, ignored some of it (but I will take it into account in the future in further sketches)
and this is what I came up with
fedup- you still need to go a bit simpler, and dont do any connections or extensions on the letters yet.
new shit, crits please?
Soar im not feeling the extension on that S, it looks a bit lower than the other letters too, id make the extension smaller and lift the entire letter a bit. Liking the O and R though, and that background is tight.
Fedup - I think it would be worth you going away and biting some simples from someone just so you can get a gauge of how to do it properly, it'll help you develop your own style.
Not finished this one yet, just looking for anything people can spot out that would be worth changing.
Hey guys! New to the forums here! I'm from holland and Ive been writing for some time now, but I want to perfect my style a bit more by drawing
more and more in my blackbook. Since I'm new to the forums I figured I'd start in the toy section, and wait till you guys tell me
whether i can move up or not . The name i use is Cube or Cubes. used to be Kube, but i figured that i like the C more.
Im also an architecture student, Piercer and tattoo artist, and ive always been fascinated by graffiti art, so i thought id start drawing graff In the fall of 2010.
before posting a couple of my drawing (First ever piece and a recent sketch i did) i'd liek to comment on TastyMcnasty here :
remember to use similar design principles in the pieces you draw! for example: see how you did the A and the R? the way the
horizontal bars go into the more vertical bars? Use that with the S as well! letters need to have a similar style or the
piece itself doesnt work. Also, try to find a way to not make the O so round. I see youre leaning towards some kind of an old skool
wildstyle, plus you dont have any curves in the other letters, so the round doesnt really do it. you could use a cirkel, but maybe make it
smaller, because now the attention is drawn towards the O so much it looks like you started drawing there. this may sound harsh, but
its not the way im meaning to say it. Just trying to help you on your way!
as for Skope, the W is the only letter where you have two bars one next to the other. I think if you straighten it out, the whole will look a lot better!
here is the first piece i drew using color. not that special really, but i liked it. it was the 3rd piece i ever drew. After the first two, my friend
(Mine, Miner or Mines) explained some designing principals he uses, and i came up with this after that.
and this is something me and the same freind drew the other night. its still a sketch, but this is where i am right now. Ill post the finished piece
up as soon as its done!
Feel free to crit in whatever way!
[Edit]: Im not too happy about the C yet though.. Ill try to find a way to make it work better with the rest of the piece.

3d always helps, drop shadows are cool, but some solid 3d always looks better, drop shadows are more for bombs.
i agree, but if youre working on a plain white wall (which occurs a lot in holland), it can come out really cool. no crit on the other sketch?
not so much, though alot of people will tell you to go simple, but I say just do your thing.
though the only thing I can say is I don't see a "B" in your first sketch.
btw, I'm in Germany, so if you ever find yourself near Heidelberg, you should msg me and we can go paint.
yeah i shouldve overlapped the B over the U. about going simple, I'd like to aim high for myself. it's always worked out well for me. and i will! wont be in the near future though, but if im passing through ill take you up on that offer! I remember being in Frankfurt, and i couldnt really spot a good piece anywhere. Stuttgart is a bit different, expecially the huge wall near the Mercedes Museum. some cool stuff there!
Soar your need to take the crits your giving and apply them to your work, lose the silly extentions brah
Cubes - that first piece with the colour needs some real structure work, i'd suggest going simpler but that second piece is seriously fucking sick!!
Dont think the eye thing ontop of the I went as well as i'd hoped. Looks pretty gay.
And the polished version of the one i uploaded earlier.
cubes, your second flick doesn't belong here... that's far beyond toy level homie
first one needs work but you have something going on there... good job
kocker, tell your friend not to write mines...
Tried using the whole bar thing think it turned out alright for writing in the back seat of a car.
And yeah cubes the 2nd one looks pretty tight so far. Not a huge fan of the 1st one.
skope i like them both except the eye it looks pretty bad. If you go for the eye again I'd try removing the pink outline thing surrounding the ball itself and make the optic nerve "the strand running out from the back" thinner and less collected make it banch out and fray a bit and I'm sure it would look way nicer.
nose2: He's Been writing Mine for about 8 years now . I mean Ill tell him, but why :P? oh, And Kocka isnt for kocker, kocka, pronounced as kotska is cube in bosnian
and guys thanks for all the crits! and Phat 2, thanks man.. Ill finish up the piece and move it up somewhere on the forums, see what they have to say !
Dcicfhbimv: Not a style Im particularly familiar with, but i like it man!

yo thanks for all the crits, ill try and post a flick of a "better" peice tomorrow...
cube- i agree with everyone else, not a huge fan of the first but that second is wayyy beyond being conidered toy.
drive- that is the first pic from you that ive actually liked, keep that shit up, but your letter structure still could use some work, not bad tho/
