    now thats on point (more or less). some of the bar widths are a little weird, but not bad all in all. from there you can start adding minor extensions and connections, and slowly evolve that style/.

    i actually posted my last post (like 3 pages back, soopakalafrajilistik...) cos i was wondering about lining the letters up (and for the practice... DUH!). I didn't line em up much cos i reckon it makes the shadow look like an uninteresting block, especially in something with lots of letters that have a solid bottom. Having the letters climb over each other a bit means i can have some corners and stuff showing up in the shadow. Also i just dont flow ruler even and never have. So i was looking for oppinions on whether slightly uneven letters for a more interesting shadow is a bad idea, and whether i should work on getting my flow ruler straight or just go with it since it IS my real flow.

    For the record, everything before that post was during a slight weed dry spell and i swear i forgot what the fuck i was trying to do. After i got back on the sticky i remembered that i normally rock a line like superkalafrajilistik in about 2-3 mins add about 2 more for shadow. Simply speaking, i wasn't flowing from letter to letter, i was trying to emulate a stencil. I don't normally write anything like that. I'm uber embarressed. Not that i think anything i've done since then is any better, just more ME.

    Not that i condone drug use...

    because the shadow from the half way point down is off. The bottom protion of the s and left side of the bottom of the O go the wrong direction. I agree with tasty, start experimenting a bit, but when it comes to 3d and shadows you gotta be careful it can make a simple look good or just make it look bent in odd directions etc. Attention to detail is key. Work it out.

    thanks for the tips pete, yeah after i was done and looked at the day after i thought the arrows shouldnt be there either, making it too complicated, AND they are both kinda facing the same direction without even lines

    @livefree for the haste purple, the colours cool, just maybe dont flare out the right leg on the H and the A, and maybe not so high on the T, like aaesoo said it makes it look like krste

    nickle: the second one is by far better than the first.... for several reasons. The top one has a lot of extra stuff that doesn't really work (kinda like the arrows in the throw). It changes between smooth and jagged letters which throws the flow off. I suggest making your K's more like the R's in the second one. The E in the second is pretty solid, but the first one feels forced. Jump in the toy handstyle battles.

    ^ thanks man, yeah the scribe handie has always been my better one, less is more i guess and i just started trying to flare the bottom of the I like that i used to just throw a straight bar on the bottom, havent quite got it down yet, and i agree with the first one on how like the star looks wack AND the arrow is kinda goin no where hahah, but thanks for the crits boss, ill check the battle thread today

    atom: put some type of hole in the A, space out the T so it doesn't look like a lower case r and I'm not an %100 sure but i think ur shadows a little f@#ked up. it shouldn't show a shadow on both the top and bottom i think its suppose to be one or the other. u have it goin across the whole bottom but then u only have it on the top of ur T and O. get rid of that and leave the left and bottom sides
