    @Kaps2 I'm going to put my 2 cents in. You just need to give it time. If it makes you feel any better I was stuck practicing straight letters for almost two years. But I learned a lot from it. Don't worry and don't give up. Get straight letters before down first.
    @ahem dope gun it just looks a bit rounder than I feel like it should be.
    @ringo dope letters bro.
    @ nzane thanks dude.

    In the second one:
    the best letter there is the E^ the A isnt working at all, its too bubbly and not barred, doesnt fit with the other letters.
    And again, the smaller bar in the A doesnt work still. just make it the same width bar as everywhere else
    and on the R dont make the leg go into the letters with the outline, it looks so dumb.
    Make sure to keep using bars, I can see in those letters you didnt use bars, or you didnt use them consistently

    Pretty much scrap the second one, and continue with the first. The first is better but still needs work. Your letters are hiding behind each other a lot and look super squished, space them out more

    I haven't posted much in a while. Either way I tried it out just because I do need to work on my block letters. Somebody get a noose so this R can just end its miserable existence, ugh. Some of the bars didn't want to agree with me, but I tried just keeping myself steady for one quick outline instead of short lines building into a single outline. Looks better than some of the other shit I have in here, at least.

    From a compositional standpoint, it wasn't a bad idea, it was just executed poorly...to the point that it should probably be executed. Ah well. Crits always appreciated.

    In what way? No offense puts but your not that hot yourself in the stuff you do. You kind of sit here with a big ego, when you know inside you don't feel happy about who you are. Thats why you try and drag people down. So instead of saying "that piece is wacky" tell me why. And no i am not going to do block buster letters.

    The stuff I do at least has letter structure, and I'm perfectly happy with who I am haha. You don't even know me, how would you know if I was happy with myself or not? Either way the reason your stuff is shit is because it lacks letter structure. Your C doesn't have a consistent bar width, same with your U. L and the E just look out of place. Thats why your shit is wacky. So unless you can bump out every letter in the alphabet as keyboard letters with perfect structure don't be sayin shit.

    You have to learn the rules before you can break them. So get to work Kaps :)
    Stuff I've been working on recently. Just mind the letters not the drop shadow.

    Whats wrong with it then? I thought instead of dragging people down we were supposed to tell each other what was wrong?

    Well its messy for a start. The U is the best letter ill give you that it looks dope. But idk if at the end thats a M. I am not a fan of the P and T. Maybe its just a style but idk i just don't see how its good enough for you to call my stuff shit when to be honest i can't see how your any better. I am sorry man I really don't like being mean, but you have been kind of having a pick and my work so i am just saying what i think of yours. Again other people may like your work and i am sure some do. But i personalty don't get how its really much better...

    Ok fair enough, I see where you are coming from. But where you're coming from is from a style perspective. You're not going off of proper letter structure. I'm not getting at how your piece looks. But the letter structure itself. It doesn't really matter how something looks if it has proper letter structure. And yes that's where some people like what a writer does and maybe others don't. Now do you see? I'm getting at your letter structure.

    Look puts i got nothing against you. I think your a cool guy. Tho i am not a fan of you style i understand what you mean by letter structure. I may not be a fan of your work but i can see how others can be. I will keep working on letter structure. And i don't think your a toy. Keep it up man...

    Go home U. You're drunk.
    3D effects aren't facing the same direction, S hitting the E does not match the rest of the scheme, and where did the rest of the L go? It should be showing some in the opening of the C.

    Try again.
