    SPLRT - your letters seem to get smaller as it goes across the page. You should put down some parallel lines like this
    ----------------
    SPLRT
    ----------------
    So you can get them all the same length and in a straight line. Obviously just rub the lines out when youre done.

    Going to put some color into these tommorow.

    Splrt - That S is whack just redo it and use bars. also your holes in the P and R are horrible, follow your letters curves.

    Skope - First one is good, second one is okay, I think the huge 3D on the last E is not needed though

    Dude that looks about 10x better than the previous stuff you uploaded. Just keep working and refining that style until you can really nail it. Then youll be able to start progressing toward that more complex lettering.

    anytime my man. id suggest making a vanishing point and taking all your corners to the point with a straight edge, itll prevent mistakes in the 3d

    ^you have to bend and use the bars even when you move away from keyboard letters man, you cant just draw keyboard letters and then fuck around with them. keep the widths consistent, the middle of the s and top of the p and r are way thin compared to other parts


    quick sketch in class

    @Skope2

    both those sketches are def improvements from your previous works. good stuff man, keep going.
    as for crits, the D in the first sketch looks like a U, mainly cuz you left the top two bars separate, the line between them needs to go so that they merge and become one curved bar. look out for that one. and unlike what the other mans said, personally, I dig the big 3D on the E and would advise you to enlarge the rest of the letters' 3Ds to match that of the E's instead of shortening out the E's out to match the rest of the letters. maybe use a vanishing point at the far right of the piece to slant your 3D's lines a bit to give the whole piece a bit of depth. i reckon it would look MUCH doper than isometric 3D going in one parallel way.
    keep developing

    Youth not bad, the Y is good I think, I still think your H needs work.

    New stuff, only really get to sketch during class, just doing quickies.... The D looks shitty, I'mma fix the bars on it later, got fucked up when I tried to darken around it.
