    A couple quick simples, not a lot of effort put in so if you want to crit just stick to the lettering I guess.

    This one was bleeding throught the yellow highlight to the bottom sketch and got black and red in it. Self crits: The C is too small compared to the other letters and the E and K shouldn't have been connected that much.



    Self crits on this one: Top curve on C is bigger than bottom, the hole in the A is fucked up and the leg on the K is too short. I was more of trying to work with blending in fills on this one.

    also, mc satan, make letters that are made from bars, consistent width, and close together. Also make them look like normal letters for now

    @ian your a fuck face, and why is your O a U

    @Rib, I feel like the BA and the SE are two slightly different styles or something and it doesn't help the flow very much. The E isn't your best, as you know, but overall your letters are pretty solid. Not too sure I'm digging that disappearing extension off the top of the A though. I think it would be dope if you made it connect to form the crossbar of the A. And the O might be a little too small. Other than that, not bad. Good luck in that battle!

    @Ace, The places where your letters connect in that top sketch look bad because your bars don't line up properly there. In that second sketch, the top of the A and the hole inside it are bad. You missed 3D on the inside of the E and the top left leg of the K, and overall it's not great. (Note the bottom right left of the K)

    @Noise, Man, don't tell me that's not supposed to be an O. The N's style doesn't seem to match because it's all straight lines compared to your O, S, and E which are almost entirely curved. The bars on it are too wide too. I do like the fills and the clean outline. Keep working on that style you used for the S and the E because it does have some potential.

    McSatan, I'm not going to draw your name for you because that's something you need to learn to do on your own. As for your latest sketch, keep the 3D going the same direction; they way you made it on the C isn't working. You're missing some pink on the bottom right side of the M, and the 3D on the top of the S is bad. Keep all the diagonal lines that form the 3D either parallel, or angled towards a vanishing point. It's called perspective. Also remember to watch your bar widths. Widen that S up and cross those A's.

    Ace.k- thats actually not that bad, you coulda cleaned it up a bit more though
    Shroomsh- lookin sick, maybe extend that bar on the X more downward. the one that goes like /
    EWL- work on smoother lines and you are missing the 3d on part of the E, and that top bar is funky.
    Mc Satan- practice more, dont overlap letters, if you do then make them consistent for each letter. , that S is funky and you should work on your lines.

    its always ugly cause you need to keep practicing.
    the 3d looks weird cause of the angle. since you got all the negative space on the left and right it looks funny. and you are missing some on the S.
