    It's not dog shit but it ain't up to par.

    Look at what classic, whachawant and bdsecc posted. They all have solid basic down. Each letter feels like it belongs next to each other, they flow well, they have the same weight.

    You have different thickness for different letters and inside the same letter. The top, middle and lower bar of your E all have different size. It feels inconsistent. All your letters should feel the same size, no matter what style you are going for.

    Don't put arrows directly on your letters, like on your k. Instead do straight letters and add connections that go into different empty spaces to fill up your piece.

    Imo you are trying to fly before you can run. We all go through that phase, it's normal, but you have to recognize it and go back to work on the basics. Which are your tag and your straight letters.

    I wouldn't worry about it Terv. My pieces are trash and ain't even on the same level as the rest of these guys. I don't care if I win or not, get a vote or not. I do this for fun. I keep it simple with my letters.
    As for getting better, practice, practice a lot. Its like anything else, you got to know the fundamentals first. And listen to these hitters here.
    So, what's the next word gentlemen?

    I'm hoping that the rest of you hitters out there are just waiting until the end of the week. Otherwise my sorry piece might make it to fourth place. Get up and stay safe.

    That's actually one of the best you have done.

    Be proud of where you are and keep working.

    Looking good Andy B ... highly suggest you take a black sharpie and just run it along the outside lines. Helps trap/frame the colors and your piece has a nice depth look to it and it will only enhance that even more.

    I can draw something .. it can look whack .. then i just do a thicker black outline and it suddenly pops

    Great advice. Also get a white paint pen and put some highlights. Liquid paper also does the trick imo.

    I appreciate the advice homeys. I hit it up with a Sharpie, so it does pop now. I was reluctant cause I didn't want to mess it up too much. Been furloughed from the factory so I got time to actually put something down instead of a few minutes. So I've had some time to do better. Better see the rest of you put something up and out shine me.

    Last minute quickie, done in under an hour, morning of due date, little sloppy but better than I expected it to be.
