    Seems like gum loves taking on the newbies.
    With all respect I see it now as tuff luv. This guy has tons of knowledge but comes off as an ass.
    I live reading your critiques tho gum, even if you're hella harsh.

    Let's keep our heads up toys and take what's given to us.

    Make the S like a keyboard S and it will be cool. Also keep in mind to keep your bar edges consistent. The bottom bar edges on the A are round while the bar edges on your S are sharp. Keep your lines edges uniform. Uniformity is key for flow in anything in graff, tagging piecing etc. Play around with reoccuring shapes and curves and straight lines when you're writing or sketching. Flow comes from your eye catching patterns in how the letter is being constructed, almost like being on beat with music, you notice a distinct pattern sonically and it catches your attention, same goes with letters but I guess it's like for your eyes or something idk.

    Its pretty much a free for all spawn just post what
    ever. if u wanna post your walls here thats fine guy this basicly the only runing toy thread . that every body frequients . . at the moment . sort of. I check them all but if advice isnt asked for I'm not gonna give it .see how ita not takeimg most the time lol . but zoid you got the right idea on how to be well balanced writer (learning it all at the same time hands , peice, and can controll) solid points 8n my book right there!! but a serious note is really learning how to do letters properly weather in graffiti or in typography. Theres a rule letters follow from aplabet to alphabet and when the rules are broken it will look whack not just to us or you but to every one becuase its wrong . say the next time your out and you look at a sign for a company images if one part of it was way big for no reason . or was sloppy and the rest wasnt you'd be like who the fuck made that garbage lol that wasnt all at you zoid personaly but in general

    Yo....if you snap a screen shot and upload it rather than try to upload the actual picture it works much better!! Otherwise I always run into issues with the file size.

    I don’t know if I’m the best the give advise as I’ve still got a lot to learn, but id say try keep your bar width consistent on the D’s!

    also I’d say the flick up at the top on the first two looks a bit odd, maybe try something a bit more like these? Sorry it’s a bit rough but hopefully you get the idea...

    Awesome, thanks dinki! Yeah those 2 first ones were really bad on the D (they are just chisel hands outlined with a micron), I like yours a lot. I think I might play around with those structures you've got going and see if I can find something that sticks. I was mostly just liking the ZOI so I figured I might be getting closer to something.

    This helps a ton. Cheers!

    no worries man! Yeah it’s worth a go, see where it takes you.
    The only other thing I’d say about them, is the halo on the last one looks a bit too big, maybe try fit it in smaller above the OI?
