    morn and chalk - fkin ill

    renk - keep doing what you are doing, just sort the N out

    cyto - thicken your bars and dont bend ur t that way it looks like a J

    real - go abit simpler, you got some good ideas so come back to it in like a month or so after finding more structure and it will look pretty dope, fresh coloring

    anroe feeling them all apart from the one with the wings, props

    crits?

    nah... i know the idea, but not all graffiti is just bars. its annoying to read this thread, cuase all "critz" gets now is "BARS BRO! SIMPLE BARS" and while some people do need to hear that, its completely unnessissary to say that to everyone.

    the only part of my drawings that doesnt have bars is the C in the first one anyway, becuase it didnt flow when i had the bottom of the C straight..

    Big Crane- Your first pic IS essentially bars, and it's not bad aside from the A. The second pic is noodles, and rather crap.
    Pretty much all good graff begins with a writer working with bars. Then he progresses to things way beyond that, but it's a safe bet, he learned alot by starting at the start and doing bars.

    Yeah man, but you're one of them jackass. Hate to be harsh but you're not the first guy to show up and think he's beyond structured letters. 99% of graff is based on bars.

    from the bigboy thread-
    That's based on bars. you just gotta look for 'em. Bars doesn't necessarily mean that they're all parallel or straight, they're just a guideline for structure.

    thats not crits, its not useful. "use bars"
    okay, i do, but not all the time, i admit. not every style is the simple bar thing, thats what im trying to say. with a more blocky style bars are sort of useless. if i can find a picture of something similar to what i was going for, i'll PM it to you or something...

    bro, i know what bars are. i recognize that, im not retarded. and i dont think im "beyond structured letters." nobody is, thats the whole idea of drawing letters... they have to have some structure or they arent letters anymore.

    what one of the other posters said is right, i just hadnt realized it: the first one basically is bars, just fatters and less distiguished.

    see, what you said was at least helpful, you had a point. just posting "BARS, USE THEM" to everyone and calling it critz is not helpful, and a lot of people need to realize that.

    ...damn, i know this is hypocritical and all, but that needs to be a little simpler cyto. im not feeling the T, the huge part shooting out the side is just too random even though i know your trying to make it look like it flows. and the blip at the bottom makes it look like a capital I. i think if you just took out the giant thing coming out the left side of the T and then tipped the whole T the other way and shifted the O back to fill up the space it'd look good.

    I love that O though, it flows nice. im mad tempted to rip that and make it into a U for what im drawing... eh.

    To illustrate my point, bars aren't necessarily uniform, it just helps to start that way. giving specific crits on a letter isn't really going to help you progress, that's all up to you. Telling you to go simple and use bars is meant to give you and idea on how to progress faster through the use of simpler, structured, flowing letters.

    cyto... do simple letters, and work on making those flow. No the other pic wasn't a good example of flow.

    gigantic- your stuff was simple enough, the structure/balance wasn't reallly there. in specific, just try to take keyboard letters, and warp 'em to make 'em flow. along the way try to add a little style in without using any addons.

    you're looking at her face?

    gigantic crane.
    anyone decent uses bars,
    you may not realize it or really be able to understand for awhile.
    but they do.
    and anything you show us that truly is not.
    wont be worth showing.

    show whatever you want but if its actually good, itll use bars and ill show you how.

    Real- Go back a bit, the colouring is grand, but work on the letters, come back to it later on.. BTW its lachlan001 from SC.

    Cyto-The first pic looks like CYJO, work on the Y and T.

    Chalk- LLLLOVIN IT!

    Seyar- Nice colouring but the A and R look kinda plain coz they dont have much extensions, Keep it up though.

    Cosen-Work on it..

    Anroe- Loving all of it, especially the good and evil piece, keep it up!

    EDIT::

    Cyto- Nice work man Im feelin that piece. Maybe just shorten out the big bar sticking out of the left side of the T?
