    Dont be afraid to work in your Blackbook homie!!! I will tell you that there is def. more trash in my books than quality pieces! Your blackbook should be a place to experiment with diff. styles, concepts, and color schemes. The great thing about a Blackbook is you dont have to show anybody whats inside if you choose not to. My books are full of half finished pieces and very rough sketches. Often times I just want to get a rough concept out of my head onto paper so that I can revisit it another time. I have found that as I progress, I still revisit things that I abandoned years ago as trash and use them for new pieces often times in ways that are completely diff. from the original ideas I had for them. Maybe you should also consider doing a seperate "Piecebook" if you want somewhere to showcase your skills. Either way....you got to get in that Blackbook regularly and experiment, push boundaries, and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!

    Thankyou for the encouragement. I guess I’m hesitant because I’m looking from my wallets perspective. Nuff of that shit.

    Dollar stores are where its at... some have simple blackbooks for cheap, use that as idea/trash book and the other for the good stuff. And if you like a drawing in the trash book, rip it out and stick it in the back of your other book

    Hell....you could even grab a ream of computer paper for CHEAP. Thats like 200 pages for less than $5. I often use that if I have something to put down but dont have a book with me. I just throw the loose pages in a folder and its sort of like another Blackbook!

    Whatever junkhead, go shoot up and pass out in a pool of your own piss or whatever junkheads do. You talk shit, get dissed back, that simple. youre definitely no one special so i wont cut you any slack, cause your pieces are garbage so is your tag and throw, and you dont even write. Youre a cornball. why are you still drawing the little wackass pieces if youre not even gonna paint anything? Whats the point, have people on here call you dope? Most of these kids are doing the same thing you are though, just drawing in their blackbook like a herb.

    I'm uhhh, yeah bro I'm sober. 1 month deep and not stoppin. And admittedly I don't paint as much as I'd like, but that's what growing up does, that and dealing with legal shit and rehab. And again, I didn't say shit to you specifically, if you're upset that you grouped yourself with all the toys posting in the blackbook thread, that's on you bud. Kys lil baby bitch boy.

    I get the dollar composition books to use a lot. Try those out for scratching out sketches. But the other guys are right. Try different styles and techniques out. Most of what I do is garbage, but I keep at it. Just practice and try to stay fluid. I'm too old to get out and hit the streets anymore, so its just sticking to the books for me. Get up, get out, and stay safe.

    @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.

    Dont use grid paper, ask @zoup what happens.
