    noone's expecting you to produce raw shit, and yeah, this is a toy forum. but you did get a tip, that was to go simpler and get rid of the non letter stuff in your pieces. you say you asked for a tip, he gave one but you didn't really listen to what he said. focus on the letters and how the structure of them work, meaning to say to make them blocky... I dunno if I'm making sense...

    zenith, same applies to you. simplfy.

    you obviously didn't listen to the whole tip, you got rid of the arrows but your not concentrating on your structure enough.

    sume i love your stuff but i think you should switch it up try something new instead of the same letters just my opinion i'd like to see you try a different idea or something.

    The only thing that bugs me about that sketch Sume is that it feels like the 'U' should curve and lean the other way but that might jsut be because I'm a whore for symmetry.

    Alllllllllll goooooood though.

    i wasnt trying to diss on you homie, everybody hates on your shit when you first start..the key is takin all that negative and using it as fuel to get better and better. you'll here it all the time, especially on this forum, but use simples to begin with. just get really really good at doing a simple, stylish letter structure, and dont run before you can walk. there are some really good tutorials on this site by cezr etc etc that can fill you in. so learn the basics, and then get crazy with your own style. good luck.

    I second what this cat said. It's awesome to see you progressing so rapidly. You're letters are looking hotter this week then they did 2 weeks ago, but I'm starting to sense a comfort zone in those letters. Do you work other words too from time to time? Naturally, what you write is the most important thing to be able to bust, but it would be cool to see your spin on some other shit too. Props anyway. ;)

    Wow Heab... I wish there was a nice way to say it's some of the worst shit I seen in a grip. :( Go to blocks homie. You either have little control over what your pen is doing, or lack of focus, or both. You have a despererate need for block letters to to get these issues remedied. I'd also suggest you put more time and effort into what you're doing and focus. Maybe New to Graffiti thread can help you out a bit?

    Keep workin on it homeboy... A whole bunch. ;)

    bigel - you inspire me. seriously. i really respect you as an artist and i hope to be as good as you one day. i just like your style.

    sume - i think you definitely have the potential to break out of those letter molds and try totally different stuff. i wanna see it.

    sinn - i like the last one. keep doin stuff like that. the other ones didn't really stand out to me too much.

    heab - keyboard letters mi amigo. don't do anything fancy. you suck until further notice. thats how it is for all toys. hey, i'm stuck in the same boat as you. don't feel bad. just practice.

    i was relatively high while doing both of these. but i had the idea in my head earlier in the day.

    any crit is welcome.

    edit: that N really does not flow. sorry. disregaurd that.

    double edit: actually. it all sucks.

    Nem i dig the idea behind the eye one but hate to sound like a cliche stick to simples and blocks plus ill give a tip a clean background gives a good impression and u should maybe try some 3-D's once u get good with blocks and remember the vanishing point and u might wanna keep the same width throughout the whole letter

    thnx for the critz guys ill have more soon

    Sinn- a few of them made me laugh just get some letter structure using bars at first though dont try and jump in the deepend.

    Heab- Thats some of the worst shit i have ever seen thats nursery.

    Nem- ditch the skinny and fat bits for the meantime just get some nice basic letters to develop, like blocks. And to Nem and Heab dont colour until you have some form of structure its a waste of ink.
