    What kind of paint is that? Is it fresh? Or I've seen some paint, I think it was australian imports that look similar to that...? It looks good, Im digging the flow, the yellow outline isn't the best but like you said it was your first time painting this year so thats no problem. I'm by far not the best person to give lettering advice but I would fatten that m out and work on the middle part. And in my experience, unless you are using high quality paint, cuts really don't work out that well. They just end up dusting over the outline even if you move quickly and aim the can away from the outline. I really don't think you need to use a smaller cap, just work on your can control/fades. The only cap I ever ever use is a NY fat. In the picture I edited, the blue circles represent the fat outlines, that you need to work on. The blue arrow I attempted to draw on the S would be considered a cut, you would use the chrome can to CUT into the black outline, which makes it sharper. When outlining the letters, its important to keep the can straight and equidistant from the wall, however, when you actually go inside the letter to define it, you should try to go from large to small. This gives the letter style and all around looks a lot better. You can practice this by painting on a wall/piece of practice wood you don't care about. Basically, just aim the can straight, and quickly flick your wrist/arm in a downward motion, while moving down, move the can closer to the wall, so your cap almost touches the wall. Do this over and over again. Eventually your lines should look kind of like a cone. Once you get your straight fades down, start doing curved lines and angles. Keep at it though, your letter structure rapes mine haha, I hope this wall of text helps.

    @Naked, looks pretty good dude. That white outline is pretty poor, but sometimes walls can eat paint so that may be the case... Work on making that E bigger, unless you want to rock the baby e which doesn't look bad. Filling with light colors and then outlining/3d with dark colors makes it pop a little more, as well as bright outlines. But that's just my personal color preference. Stay up.

    Word thanks emune, the white was supposed to be a glowish thing like it wasnt a solid outline i tried to make it flare out...didnt work. But thanks man

    Gowj: Sounds like a good day.
    Naked: You're getting better. Did you put the can parallel to the wall facing away from your outline?

    @ naked that A is super weak, and youll be better set making a cap E that fits the size of the others

    @Emune I think if you try and make all your bars the same width it'd look much better. Pretty fresh though.

    ^ looks decent, O is kinda off and looks like some of ur bar width isnt the exact same but it looks good...i like the color combo you used 2. i gotta attempt a straight letter soon here

    Emune- needs to be cleaned up abit but still looks decent, i like your U the most. try it again with trying to make ur bar width more or so the same

    @Hipe, not bad for first simp piece. Simps are surprisingly difficult, so don't be discouraged. It's a lot harder to lay out a wall with even bars than it is on paper, as many of the black book dick riders do not realize. I compliment your brave selection of letters man. K's are fun, but O's are a bit tricky, and that blank space from the P and R is difficult. I'm not hating on your name, but giving you props for taking on it's challenge. Keep up that good spirit.
    @Irony, Thanks my dude, I will work on the bars again, I usually rush my sketches so that I can paint them haha. I'll probably stick with that flow and keep working with it (other than throwies I haven't painted the same style twice, mostly because I didn't really use bars when I first got in the game.)
    @Norf, thanks mang, I kinda fucked up on a few of them, it was getting dark and I was tired of the wood dwelling hobo that sat behind me the whole time I painted this, thank God big africa and my other boy were there with me.
    @Kaze, Thank you, I will improve it next time after I sketch it up a few mo'gins.
    @Gemer, anytime man, and btw, is that fresh good? It looks ridiculously high pressure on the videos I watch, not to mention is sounds like a fucking jet engine being sprayed, and it has a weird matte/plasticy looking finish. I've contemplated ordering some before, and it sells out so fast, so I often wonder if it is good, or just really cheap. I know it's not even comparable to mtn or ironlak, but in comparison to other paints you've used how do you like it? Such as rusto or painters touch
    @blackmath, I like it dude. I saw you mention when you posted that you wanted a unique throwie and props to the straights. Your can control is alright, but that will get better with time, looks like shitty paint, but theres no reason to buy highquality, you'll learn more with mid line high pressure paint such as rusto (just get a few cap adapters and some ny fats.) The K branches are too small in my opinion, so work on that k, also your T is overlapping the A (as it should,) but your A is going behind your K, so work on that and fix it next time. I see you ran out of paint? Outlining in a different color than the fill makes the piece looks a million times better so keep that in mind, and if that is chrome, you must have located some old krylon or HQ paint because in my experience rusto chrome or any other brand chrome isn't worth shit. Try to flow that K upwards at the same angle as the T and A.

    Duuuude such an awesome crit. Ill definitely work on the K. And actually someone else also said that I must have used shitty paint but I used Rusto, thats all I ever use if I dont buy shit off the internet, I think it was just a shitty wall. The paint was being absorbed where there wasnt paint underneath, know what Im sayin? And nah the chrome Rusto is actually pretty good. All the rusto cans around here are male cans, except the chrome, and I got orange dots so thats why I grabbed it. Don't know if its like that everywhere else. But thanks for the advice man I'll draw it up and try it out tonight
