    They are telling you to go simpler for good reason, if you don't like it than ignore it. Think about the benefit of simples this way. If you attempt a piece with extensions, crazy letter forms, and all that jazz, but your basic letter form is not perfected, than obviously adding extensions and all that other stuff isn't going to fix it. You can't polish a turd. By starting simple you can learn the best ways to attain flow and bend your letters. That's like trying to backflip a motorcross bike before you've even learned to shift gears. If you want to ignore people who are good writers advice, than that's your choice nukka. All of my progression (if you can call it that) is from listening to the advice iv gotten from here.

    Also tits.

    @shearz - some of the ideas are nice but i dont think its working overall. I didn't realize that was a Z until i kept staring intensely, and those wavy bar - vein things connecting letters looks awkward. hate to say it but, try some simples.

    @ cred - i wasn't feeling that as much as your other stuff, i think its all starting to get super super clean though

    @ doss - i kind of get what you mean, but just ignore it if you don't care, no need to bring it up.

    @ kinger - from seeing some of your other posts i can only say, take everything you know - and completely forget it.

    @ toys - the shading and detail looks nice on that first post, but you should try more simples - or do whatever.

    There is an entire thread dedicated to this very thing (new to Graffiti). No one is going to hold your hand while you try to figure out your own shit.... I'm not gonna help you climb the ladder I'm too busy climbing mine type shit. You might get some tips as to why something doesn't work etc, but when you haven't even tried to grasp the basics and it stands out like a blind man at a nude beach and talk about wanting tips and then about not giving a shit what people say no one is going to take you seriously and frankly your drawing should be deleted at that point or you should just stop posting. If you want tips take them and take the time to educate yourself. CRED is doing it and shows like a mother fucker.

    Best tip you will ever get. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND DRAW.

    anybody help me with a name that starts with an A?

    @shears - try gaining some structure. some of your swoops look off. the shading is kind of all over the place. think of a light source and direction. like have it all on one side. not imploding everywhere. just my 2 cents
