    heh... *remembers when his pieces looked like Got Paint?*

    Got Paint? : As I`m sure most members will say,try going very simple,like a basic default font... and then slowly develop it over months into your own style.But for now try simple

    O.k Got paint............. Wow, waaaaaaaay too complicated, stop drawing like that for now until you get down basic letter structure. Just work on straight and basic letters for a while... A looooooong while, it may seem boring and it's repeated over and over again in this thread but its how you get better...

    Whoaaaaa got paint...lose ALL of those "extensions" if you can even call it that. Make something simple out of the letters in the second one and then maybe it will be good.

    rusty ur name says it all ur drawings looks rusty. I mean they are some what simple but u dont have a strong leter structure ur colouring sort hides that. lose the arrows and dont attach leters together. The last one you did has the best idea going with it. Keep everything straight, in proportion and then slowly start bending the leters around. Trial and error is how u get beter

    sore- use blocks or bars to construct ur letters it helps you to keep things in proportion and dont attach your leters together your 3-d is off at some points it looks like its goin to a vanishing point and other points look like everything is just goin parrelel

    deo- not bad try to keep your threed or drop shadow in proportion and lose the frankestien stitch lines in your leters. try bending the back of your E only slightly to help it look rounder so it flows with the d n the o keep it up

    acute- lose the little thing on the end of the r . ur leters are fairly simple but some look beter then others. I would recomend using bars and straight lines for now because with ur c's u have the littl point in the middle which makes its look like a shitty E and the circle throwie is alright there but be honest did u bite the circle idea off the bomber from state your name cus he does his exept the lines end with a dot so but if not its cool

    bouncing soul i cant krit you lol :p

    stashboy - I like the letter style in the first set of stickers. The last one looks a little weird to me. It's unique which is good but it just looks plain to me. Maybe try adding a drop shadow or something/highlights on the letters.

    Gist - I like the C in the second one more personally...seems to flow with the letters better. Maybe try making the G a little bit more like the C in the second one and the c in the second one a bit more like the C in the first one so it's kind of in the middle. Basically just take the first one and make the bottom parts of the C and G a little shorter...I don't know why but it just looks weird to me.

    zeal its boring as hell yes but go back to simple straight lines like the tuturial i just posted. itll take a while to get but once you go the leter structure down u can starting bending it and twisting it how ever you want n no one can say a thing cus itll be your style so back to blocks and you have to learn to highlight properly . dont randomly add lines think of all the lines on the right side of the leters and highlight those
