    I like it Dank, made me laugh.

    I think you could add more detail to the clouds, right now they only have two dimensions, you should try to add depth to them, make it look like a platform he is sitting on if you know what i mean. You could maybe make the background a little busier, and if that joint is lit (i'm assuming it is if i'm supposed to hit it) its not smoking, and doesnt look on fire.

    Oh, and the letters are good and simple, but the right bar of the U bugs me

    its too late to add smoke, i was thinking about it. it woulda been a nice addition though.
    I'm gunna try that with the clouds, gunna have to think it through because i dont know how to pull that off well and id rather not ruin the piece, haha.
    thanks for the crits, gunna keep alot more stuff on my mind next time i draw something like this.

    hahah whats this credit bullshit?

    I would describe it as basically doing the bumpy things you did, but coming towards you instead of straight up, if that makes sense. You have to be very careful with them though. Definately practice before you try it on your piece. Dont do too many or else it wont make any sense. Use them to add depth to the clouds. For instance, you can make some of the bubbles look like they are in the back behind other ones by making your depth lines diappear behind the vertical ones.

    Hope you can dechiper that

    I aint got a white, 3d on middle bar of H is off because of coloring mistakes, i would rather have the 3d off then the green mix with the yellow on the second outline making it look weird. Like how on the end of the middle bar of the H there is fuckin pink in my yellow because i was going to originally going to leave that bar open and I colored it that way, but then decided to close it and going over the end parts of that pink would have made the middle bar's end look weird.... ya feel me?

    but fasho on the crits

    @dank lol i dont think buddha ever sat on any clouds... How you like drawing buddha? I tried drawing him sittin under a tree a few months back, but that shit was hella hard, making his man tits proportionate with his belly and fat head

    @ rib - looks like your did a nice job and took your time on every detail, I understand why that's so important. I didn't notice any defects until perm pointed that one thing out, besides the missing outline around pop eyes right hand, either way it looks good.

    @ dank - whoa haha buddah is exposed its official. na jp, cool concept i think thickening up the writing on top would help imo the J looks lit , nice letters down there those two D's look almost identical.

    @ samurai - I especially like your random sketches i think your next ones try an improve on the coloring that would step them up a lot.

    @aomin - your piece would improve a lot with more identical design on both sides of your letters.

    @shroomsh - from what i can tell your style would look dope with more in depth detail and diverse colors. lets see it.

    Tasty, I'm not too sure about the way your bars connect on the blue and white piece, and I also think that there is too much negative space, try making some bars thicker than others to cut out unnecessary negative space in your piece. This said I am glad you understand bars, they are a big part in developing a unique style.

    Ribcage, what can I say, that popeye character is dope.

    uuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh I mean connect your bars smoother, and keep the width/ wideness of your bars an equal length so bars look proportionate nahmean?

    A couple of really old ones from a 2008. I know theres some real whack toy-like extensions on some of them, but i'm just looking for crits on the style of lettering more than anything. Also, it reads 'MONK'

    Skope- being a uk head myself too I think the styles are pretty wicked.Loving the second sketch and the third would be nice if you did it again with less extensions like you were saying. Got any pics of painted pieces??
