    @Spek_
    Yep, block letters, try making your letters straight and basic, like keyboard letters. After you get a better grasp on structure, then you can start bending the bars to try and add style, then later hookups.

    Bumping some whack shit, totally a bad example for what I just told you to do, lol

    @Retro I'd cut back on extensions a little dude, makes your letters look worse than they really are

    @Lich Not bad at all. Just make sure you carry the same style throughout, for example: since your letters have curves in them, you should've curved the horizontal bottom bar on the L instead of making it a sharp bump.

    daily.. ignore the Mar piece, i dont really like how it came out

    @grabs, yeah that was my first piece in about two-three months, and I got a bit carried away lol.

    I really like your OVAR pieces in your last post, especially the second pic. Really clean, slick bars. Your throws are pretty sick aswell, you down for an exchange??

    nice loon, maybe try thickening your bars up abit? that LEWN throw is dope maybe try that letter combo with this

    flipper, simplify simplify simplify. drop the extensions, bends and doo das. widen up your letters and start off with simple good old keyboard letters. may seem boring and easy but they are harder then they look and you want to make yours look as proper looking as you can. then you start adding some funk to it.

    Hak some of it looks a bit forced but its good to experiment! those shiny glares look good though. keep at it

    Some rough felt pen sketches, the CMND ones are for an exchange with tiger
    one of my G's is a C on accident but crits always appreciated

    @loon good simples

    @flipper do letters like the ones on your keyboard for a few months, you have no grasp of letter structure

    @hak letters arent awful but theres mistakes throughout that make the piece look worse than it is. work on simples

    @turban the alternating sizing on a bunch of those makes the piece not flow as well. The style could definitely work but I just feel like you need to put more than 5 minutes into each

    random shit, ive been MIA

    i see what your saying grabs. sometimes i dont have the motivation to put lots of time in it but i have posted lots of stuff that i have. those where just like new ideas i guess for something i could start messing with. and good looking out man il work on keep the letter size more consistent

    your flows getting better. digging the top and bottom one the most except the R at the bottom maybe the bottom bars come abit close? i do this too sometimes though :/ keep at it man looking good

    jak theres some nice stuff there im digging that alphabet and some other steezy stuff in there
