    saw gists quick tutorial, reminded me of tehse 2 pages i did a lil ahile ago

    [Broken External Image]:http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/9016/1222231mr7.jpg

    someone in teh old "new 2 graf" thread said none of the tutorials showed how to draw a basic simple . . . practicing simples are good for getting down letter/bar proportion and an understanding of leter structure . . top of the page is an example of teh sequence of lines i would do to draw a simple keyboard letter (when people say go simple, they usually mean keyboard simple), notice that i usually start my letters with a horizontal bar . .. the red lines going thru teh bottom BERS simple gives you an idea of how you can try and keep things proportional thru out a piece . .

    [Broken External Image]:http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/6539/1222234cn0.jpg

    top of this shows that once you can draw a proportional keyboard simple (in teh 1st column) you can then try to style it up a bit, column 2 shows how i go about tweakin a simple, i find the dominant bar in the letter (usually horizontal) then bend it (bend it in or out, try both ways and see which one looks/feels right) . .teh 3rd column of the top part shows what a styled up simple looks like now that youve bent teh dominant bar, added a few tabs and curves

    top of teh bottom section shows you what a tab is and how easy they are to add at teh bottom/end of any bar, bottom bottom shows you how you can then exend that tab to this common addon (which i use as an addon or as teh bottom bar of my Es, top bars of my Ts, wherever they fit in)

    so get keyboard simples down first, then move on to finding and bending the dominant bar of the letter, add a few tabs in, when you get better think about now extending the areas where you normaly put tabs and make them full addons doing what ever you want with them . . .

    sorry for misspelling "teh" wrong so much and teh blurry pics, i tpye faster than i should

    well if u look at it
    T looks to powerfull in front of the o, this is becuase the t is wider than normal letters. to have the O in front of the T.

    O dont put edges likeu have done because it dont looks write with the other letters.

    R dont over lap ur line many people do it dunno y.

    N need to look more powerfull so bring it to the left abit
    hope this helps

    Xsjadox- The F is ok, but take off the little indent on the top of it, your A looks like a G, i would suggest take off the lump on the left side of the A, and your last letter looks like a Y, barely

    Shamee- Your "T" seems much bigger than the other letters, and on the left side of your N take of the little lump on it and make the middle bar thicker, but your R is actually pretty decent

    K so here i am overlapping my simples, just to try to get a feel for it, since all i have doin for 3 months is simple letters that spaced enough not to touch :). And the "A" on the bottom is me just tryin to find some sort of style by bending the letter in diffrent ways:)

    So what you guys think

    acen...the simples on the top are nice. as for the a's on the bottom they arent so good, i think you may be trying to do too much too soon. for your next sketch just try to curve all the letters in one direction w/o adding anything.

    fap...those simples are pretty nice, but the top of the a overlaps the bottom way to much to the point were its a little hard to read.

    Chili- Personally i dont like your letters look really choppy, and i really hate your A the letter structure needs alot of help, but keep working on it

    Chill - some parts of the letters are too skinny and it makes them look a lot worse like the bottom of the E and the bottom of the S. Also the whole thing just seems really empty and spaced apart as well. Maybe try fattening the letters a bit and maybe putting them closer together. Try to get them to flow.

    Oh yeah and here's a simple I did for someone (I write slink) because everyone is always saying "OMG U NEED TO GO SIMPLE!" So here it is...i kinda messed up the 3d on the K so just ignore that :)
