    which I understand. I'll say it, and it goes for Smack1 too, steer clear of any of the graffiti creator type letters. For one they suck ass to begin with and look like total shit if not done well. As with all graffiti webforums there is a "new to" page. Read it. it's gospel. I know it seems lame to write square ass letters, but for real you don't build a house from the roof down. Build your foundation and make it strong. Each repetition is a brick. This goes for handstyle, throws, the whole nine. Good luck and fill books!

    smack: the squared letters are a far better show. the 3d looks pretty good and proportions are good. If I do a piece like this I'll cheat and use a straight edge to make sure my lines are completly straight and my 3d is perfect. I suggest going lighter with your pencil. To the point it's almost hard to see. It erases easily and can play with structure and shape easily and even over the same letter with out ruining it and then just darken the parts you like. (and it wont leave huge lines in the sheets below like in the bottom left of your page)

    truth: not bad I like the C and E. Personally I would have bent the loop of the p down. The A needs work too. Practice the hell out of 3d. Not trying to be a dick, but the 3d on your E is completely fucked. http://www.artgraphica.net/free-art-...or-artists.htm http://www.khulsey.com/perspective-drawing-basics.html

    this one is my favorite of them. best display of structure and shape. I would stick with these letter shapes, drop the arrows and chips, and work on stretching/elongating/fattening them to see what works for you. Don't just slap arrows on there willy nilly. Learn to make them flow with your letters, but learn to make your letters flow first.

    cool lol the sketch i was just experimenting but im glad you like them so by stretching and elongating them you mean without the add ons like arrows but stretch the bars and maybe a few connections?

    REZUME OR DIE:

    1. get a camera or fix it or what ever
    2. what markers were you using?
    3. the first 2 R and E letters are ok the rest are wack because you did the letters going across the page like that also next time draw guidelines
    4. draw guidelines then do simple block letters this help you get better at letter structure also BARS
    5. love the characters and the dragon lol

    SMACK 1:

    bin it its wack

    then draw block letters use a ruler if it helps but you need letter structure also another tip work on your lines

    cool good simple start trying to bend your bars a bit more because the e and s look a bit crooked and the top of the o is a bit wack but everythings great apart from that

    and dont write esoe or esoes, and start simpler. its apparent you are working off some one elses style or letters. And you needa work on keeping your bars the same width, and the extensions on the s's are to big in my opinion

    aeso= work your letters together its not a crime to overlap there just floatin around
    humr- the r in the yellow one looks more like an a and the r in the light purple can be an e without the ex mark keep workin on it
    give crits to get crits

    Haha, it's funny because I went completely freestyle and used zero inspiration for the letters.
