    @Andy B im pretty limited with what stores are open right now, only essential ones.. luckily I work in one but the art stuff is weak as fuck.

    Mad hostility happening in the background here..

    First in my book.

    Oh, egads! My painting is ruined. But what if I were to paint over it with a critically acclaimed show and pass it as my own artwork? Delightfully devilish, Zoid.

    You have a big problem with bar width consistency. Its skinny on the id but fat on the zo. You bars for every letter have to be of equal width or it will look off. Keep practicing dude, i still have problems with proportions myself and ive been working at it for years. Keep everything uniform bro, thats key, extensions, structure and flow should be uniform, thats how fonts are made by people, one letter is always similar to the others, they use uniform structure and serifs or sans serif that make up each letter. Take this into consideration when youre trying to find style. For example, Think: does this R have the same leg or kick as the K?, find the similarities of each letter because some letters are similar in structure it might be a similar curve the letters have for example. Utilize that as much as you can.

    Thanks, definitely something I struggle with. Still practicing straight letter in the books. But this is good to keep in mind, thanks for the advice

    @SpawnCamp draw a base line and a top line and practice making your letters evenly fit. Grid paper could also help you gauge some letter scaling.

    Broke because you know... I am.

    way better. except for that G, if you had just copied the keyboard G it would have flowed.

    draw it exactly like this.

    I'd agree with Asohle. I tend to draw out guidelines for reference to try to keep my letters the same height and width. And Gum is on point with keeping consistency with the style in the letters also. Its got to flow right to look right. Get up and stay safe.

    There are no writers in my area so I can't get any educated opinions for my sketches. Let me get some constructive criticism on what's right and what I'm doing wrong

    Yo that shit looks like straight graffiti creator fonts. Mindgem really fucked up with making that site... Granted, Namer1 came from that forum... So it's not all bad.
    Y'all ever find shit in your book that you just can't remember doing or what it was gonna say when finished? I got a buncha half done sketches and idk where they came from

    @zoup try something like this?? I'm just fucking around on my phone but you get the gist yeah?
