    sometimes it looks okay, but not usually with throws. but do your thing, it was just a suggestion.

    thanks mar- dig your letters, really balanced.
    azteka- nice letters, your K,R seem squished though, but keep it up.

    Nez- Yea, i went way over the top with the arrows, specially that extra one on top of the W. I love hip hop mostly 'underground'....what are you using to fill? I see no stroke marks on the fable it's sick.

    Shame- the fill/outline is crap, but it looks like your were doin a quickie. Structure looks tip top. Good job...erase that pencil!!

    Destil- I like, good style. the little dude is funny too. diggin the shadow
    fill. I gotta agree with 5funerals about the extension.

    Sex without condoms- Great username :), think you should stick with pencil for now...get them letters consistent.

    Jsbigs- What roa said. Use guidelines if you need to.

    A Maze- damn thats real clean, great job, couldn't tell it was rushed cept maybe the outline on the left.

    Azteka- Nice throw up. I'm likin your handstyle as well. inspires me to work on mine.

    Roa-I like the style... your drop shadowing/3d needs some work.

    Ima bump mine again, i feel kinda jipped cuz the post right after I posted, it was massive. Hope ya'll don't mind.

    ^It's dope man, very complex. bars are all very consistent as well.

    I can feel ya roa, I was purposely trying to go over my head with the sketch...Trying out new things. What would you change about it? Just too complex for my level or what? Never heard the name before, not anywhere for a 20 mile radius or from any prominently known artist, but it's got personal value so ima stick with it. Thanks for the crit. :)

    Totally agree about the throwie. Its crap. Meant to be a bit lumpy on the outline but it's hard as fuck to do freehand!!! In fact I can't duplicate it all in one shot hahah. Gotta say I love my 'e', reminds me of a little happy asian man.

    Thanks, man. It helps when you've got a lot of years of drawing other stuff under your belt. ;) I've seen other people on here suggest that new writers stick to block letters until they get it down to a science.

    I did a new one tonight during my daughters' dance class (which was funny because I tried to think of what I would say if one of the moms there asked what I was drawing..."Oh, just some graffiti I'm planning on throwing up on a train car later tonight"), and I tried some new stuff. I probably put more detail into it than I would be able to with an actual piece at this point, but it's the ideas that matter, right?

    Sorry for the poor quality...lousy cellphone cameras...

    yeah dude dont worry. its actually really good compared to some of the newer cats who just started. yeah i like that style. like mega simple block letters. there is this writer named SCAGE. you should look him up. he does some really dope simples. i think for that one u just posted just seperate the letters (like the B and the Y). yeah i also like the negative space is the U. and just keep slavin. youll get it.

    Thanks, Thrice. I appreciate the props. :) I'm going for that USSR/Commie look.

    Actually Atlok, it's an E, not a B. I tried to reverse it like the R and slant the corners. I'll try it the other way. I know sometimes reversing the letters works, but obviously this isn't the case here.

    I looked up Scage. You're right. He's got some awesome stuff that's not terribly complex (compared with a lot of the other stuff I've seen). Proof that sometimes less is more. I'm assuming you're familiar with BooyaBase...http://www.fotolog.com/booyabase . He's got some of his/their recent work up there, and it's pretty rad.

    There is a writer here in Minneapolis named IMPEACH. He (or she...dunno) basically draws a square for each letter, and then paints the letters in a serif-style font with dots in the center (like the skeleton of the letter...don't know how else to describe it). Some of his trains are in the Minneapolis thread on 12oz. Prophet if you ever want to check it out. It's very unusual, but it's uniquely his.

    How rude...I never commented on your stuff.

    Atlok, speaking as an artist, I really like the style you used on this. I can't tell what it says, but I really like it. Smooth lines, and your colouring (as far as both technique and colour choice) is very good. Very easy to look at.

    Thrice, I like it. Is it just me, or does it look a little bit like the logo for those Airheads candy things? Can't wait to see the coloured version!

    Haze, on the top, I like the middle one the best. I also like the blue one with the orange. I don't know so much about the style and hook-ups or whatever, but I know what appeals to me. Nicely done.
