    New bombing science blackbook came in the mail today. Started it off with something simple. Love the size of this book by the way.

    Don't waste $15 (sometimes more) for a sketchbook with 200sheets or less, when you can buy 1500 sheets for like $20 at your local office store.

    I paid like 6 bucks for it while I was ordering other stuff, its the perfect size to carry with me, and I didn't have to leave my house to get it. Worth it imo

    holy fuck. um, ok. I guess just prices at stores where im from are expensive. forget i said anything. Regarding your actual graffiti, that looks pretty bad. The S, a wack style, A, wack structure, P, looks doofy and the drip is making it look worse. Scrap everything. Do simple letters, like the ones on your keyboard. Learn about fonts, learn about letter structure, learn that you should actually know when to try in respect to how much understanding of the letters you have over time to add style and add-ons. It's not happening overnight, and skipping the proper steps will make you look bad outside. may be not to some of these corny ass new internet writers, but from the real ones you will get no props. you work on your tag first, then your throw up, then your straight letters, then your pieces. Those are the fundamentals of fully evolving as a writer, a legend from my city Chino BYI says this aswell as a majority of the legends from my city. not trying to sound condescending or anything just trying to pass on knowledge from the people who made graffiti international. without them, most of us wouldnt even be interested in this craft.

    @SpawnCamp yeah this looks trash. are you like rich or something? you can afford to buy this much paint and do these fancy fills, ive seen you for at least 3months here posting shit and it seems you have no understanding on how letters are put together. There are plenty of resources on this forum on how to improve, i reckon you should use them cause your work has actually gotten worse than what you posted before. stop doing all this fancy shit youre not ready. youre trying to run before you can walk and it just looks cringy when youre doing it.
    Learn the fundamentals before you try to be innovative.

    Lol dude, yeah I know it was trash, someone was actually trying to help me out and did a cool sketch and I wanted to paint something like it. Just because I fucked it up a bit doesn't mean I'm going to not do it. Also yep, I have a job that can afford me to fully enjoy my hobbies. Also fine with the cringe, if I'm going to spend money and paint, I am going to have some fun with it. I like to try different styles and I am back to trying to nail down my simps and get a better understanding of bar structure in my books. But if I feel like painting I'm going to do it and you can go cry more about how you can't afford it

    I've already been here a year and yes, I am trying to practice and put in the work but this isn't some training camp i need to suffer through and learn to hate because some kid thinks you can't have fun with your hobbies. There is room for both. And careful racking shit, nobody wants to see you get caught up

    Don't expect me to leave, I enjoy this community and think it's actually super positive and helpful, even spicy beef omlets like yourself. I'm sure if you hated all the inexperience and people trying to learn you wouldn't be hanging around the toys forum or at least muted me if you just can't stand my toy shit

    Here is some more garbage for you to enjoy

    That would be a fire ass roller or blockbuster if the letters were tilted in a arc.

    But you got it all wrong big homie it's got nothing to do with me. It's got everything to do with you and your graffiti. Keep at it

    You shouldn't practice simple keyboard letters for me bro do it for you, it's obvious you're a beginner. I've been bombing for over a decade at this point and I can tell when someone doesn't know what they're doing. Just listen to the advice given to you by people who are ahead of you. You won't regret it. Copy the keyboard letters exactly. If you have a hard time doing it you know you need to work on the actual letter structure, so just keep practicing

    Trust I dont practice anything for you it's all for me and to improve my skills lol. That's what this forum is all about. I've never claimed to be anything more than a beginner and have only been here to ask for criticism. I just feel most of your criticism attacks people instead of being constructive and actually trying to help them. It's hard for anyone to take what you say seriously when you come off as an asshole right away. Just my two cents but really do appreciate your criticism nonetheless.
