    Word, thanks man. I've actualy just worked out something new and already changed it. The K and the G should be worked out, more or less, now. I'll get flicks in awhile.

    Don't be such a masochist about it, man. lol.

    Fill the S out, so it sits better next to your A.
    Shorten the extensions on your E just a touch.
    Shorten the base of your 2, round it out (Follows more of a circle), and make the weight sit right above its base.

    Nice stuff otherwise man. Tops out most of my simples, even as it stands. Haha.

    gum on shoe sorry i missed you. you posted while i was looking at the others.uhm let's see. make your letters more proportional. the get too wide at the ends, and make the "O" hole a bit bigger. it doesn't have to be regular sized, but that's a bit too small imo.

    vvv the big thing isn't really for flow, more for just letter ideas. i don't do P's. sorry

    i like the new l, keep that, try matching the bottom of the e with the l, also drop down the middle part of m, and make the the 0 circular.
    oh yeah, and make the 0 straight, don't slant it towards the l.

    looks fine, only thing that cud be better is the "S"
    but those are tricky. get some 3d on those just for fun and see how it looks

    Jokz: Nice and clean man. The only thing that I think would make it look better is if you actually connected those portions of the letters, rather than making breaks in them. On the top two, they look a little 'choppy' if you know what I mean. Some of the bars look out of place, but together, it doesn't look all that bad.

    Snore: Work on that S a little bit and watch out on that left bar on your N- it kinda looks like an h, so keep an eye on that. Also, try using that letter style without the cracks for now and play around with drop shadows, 3d, etc. and you've got yourself a solid simple.

    Another quickie I whipped out at work :/ Crits please :)

    snore- its good but the indent thing at the bottom of the s ruins the letter
    lein- maybe make the bottom of the left and right leg of the n meeting bigger?

    Changed up the way things sit over all, like it, but the G still doesn't sit right... and the I isn't there, obviously. The little sketchbook rocks, but its to small for anything but charactors...

    I like my rough lines, everything else just feels wrong.

    gumonshoe: Pretty solid man. S's are a bitch, just gotta work on the letter a little bit.

    Jokz: Your good man, keep with it.

    Melo & Stot: Check these.
    awww.identifont.com_samples_adobe_TimesNewRoman.gif
    Bite these, chew these, regurgitate these. Ignore the little accents on the letters for now (the the little decorative bits hanging off end points on the letters.)
    Take note of the "bars" that make up each letter. ie. A M is made of 4 "bars", one making up each upright and two making the V in the middle. Think of every letter as being made up of little rectangles, and draw them that way.

    Thats the only lesson I'm giving you until you listen. ;)

    To repeat what I've said once before, Bending is like puberty. It happens naturally on its own, you can't force it to happen. I was once where you are right now, if I listened to advice like this I would probably be chillin' in the big boy threads by now. Instead I stumbled and learned on my own like your trying to do, and by shear force of will I walked away with a dope handstyle (and weak everything else). I got frustrated and quite twice, but graffiti never quite me. So here I am now, chillin' with the toys once again. Learning, working, and TAKING GOOD ADVICE from people who know what their talking about. Just fucking do what we tell you, guys, we know from experience this is how to learn it best.
