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.
oh yeah just realized that on the S oh well at least personally i feel improvement they are taking a lot less each time. gto any suggestions on anything else i should practice?
allrite thanks, just an idea i had but should i start moving the vanishing point around also? to try out different angles?
...just when I thought nah! couldnt become any stupider, he goes and makes another stupid account... yo nah! youve already been banned twice you little ugly troll, your on the road to a permaban. We no wan that tho cause then who is gonna make me look good
im on a muthafucking posting frenzy cause my laptop is actually letting me use the internet...

ok tried bigger letters and switched up the vanishing point off a bit to the side instead of center. realized to late that the N was to far away but other than that im actually kinda satisfied.
what do you guys think?
yikes, you shouldnt be satisfied with that...
You need to start making smarter decisions with your letters. Thats a pencil up there right? Use that pencil bro. Lol I got jokes, but on the real take more time and sketch your shit out. then after you havesketched letters draw your 3d on w/ pencil so you can fix your fuck ups before you ink it. An example of making smarter decisions would be- if your going to do a vanishing point, pick a point or spot that doesnt give you an awkward 3d. Like how your 3d is different for your A and N then it is for the rest of the letters.
i work with pencil first ten pass pen,also considering my other ones i'm actually satisfied so far. the vantage point i'm just kinda messing around with just moving it around to do 3d from various angles. that way i can hammer into my head the correct 3d for both the C and the S which i have problems with. also my S finally came out looking allrite. every other S ive drawn so far had tons of dents. so considering my previous ones yes im satisfied. also went with bigger fatter letter like i was told on previous page. gonna have something to eat and try something out without any 3d and try to get them closer together maybe lean to one side just to test out.
Don't lean, focus on simple SIMPLE letters. You shouldnt be happy with that S or any letter on there. Fix the width of your letters. it should all be even.
made it clear where i fucked up on the M by coloring it, besides that i think the other letters went well. also since im tired of drawing letters today added a lil devil on top
why u drawin straight letters like that anyways, thats why we have computers.
All we are is just dust in the wind.
yoooo ribcage i was just fuckin with ya my dude, that turned out sick. Don't know if you're lookin for crits on the REACH as well but if you are, the top of the R should be a bit bigger and those weird things on the bottom left of the R and A need to go and so does that funky extension on the H. Other than that, lookin good. tbh i don't even mind that E in the basoe too much. Your fills are always clean as anything as well, somethin i like about your work. Keep it up my dude.
Mc Satan, on the right track somewhat, although i think your A's need their middle lines. Also all your lines are shaky as fuck. Work quicker with the marker. Good to see youre usin bars though, keep it up
One last bump, any more crits? This thing took me so long to do I would work like 5 mins on it and then walk away from it for the longest time. Been hella busy. I know the O looks like a U. Still can't rock that style. I'll also be postin up a sketch im workin on for the battle shortly when i finish it.
for the battle, gonna ink and color it tomorrow. Hit me

lines are shaky mainly cause of the pen if i go quick it doesnt mark it well, i just need to either get hang of the pen or get something else. also at least in this last one it kinda felt right not to cross the A's i know i fucked up that M but realized when i was to late. decided to point it out myself. and the devil cause i needed to draw something that wasn't bars today. always been drawing on and off never liked straight lines.
@ian: for the Noise piece, the N is overpowering the other letters, and the top curve of the E looks a little goofy. Otherwise nice work. You might want to revise that Basoe piece. The letters gradually get bigger and smaller with each other. Compare that A to the B and S. Its miniature to them. Good work on the extensions on the B though, they look natural.
Can I get some crits on my entry for the battle? Just the rough draft.
ace, all i can see right now is the E is a little low and i think the S is going over the O a bit too much

Mc Satan, stop asking people to draw your letters for you. If you can't even do that on your own good luck ever coming up with an original style.
And 3D is extremely easy to draw. All you need to do draw diagonal lines that are all the same length and parallel to each other. (Don't do perspective yet, you clearly don't understand the concept well enough to do that) Then connect the lines but make sure to keep the line that forms the 3D the same distance from the letter throughout. That's why the top of your C in that sketch with the yellow 3D is so fucked up.
Try playing around with the wordart feature on MS Word. It should help your understanding.
Fixed it and filled it. Any better guys?
allrite i did some sketches this morning thought i'd post em. i think im staying out of 3d for awhile and stick to drop shadows till i get better hang of it
