    Stop doing connections and work on your letter proportions/ bar widths first. Like most people you've got cool ideas but unable to execute it properly because you've yet to learn the basics, like everyone else has said.

    Spacing between letters, and bar width consistency.
    Make all of the letters separate (not touching or overlapping) and show us something with all the bars the same width, it's not hard for most of us but believe me I was shit when I first joined these forums till I started doing a shit load of simples/ keyboard letters

    alright i did this fast so idk about neatness but i tried
    also about bar width consistency i varied it on purpose, why is that bad?
    and i guess ill make the spacing more consistent that shouldn't be hard
    also heads up im really really bad at taking criticism so if i ignore your crits sorry in advance

    I mean the individual letters look good but they are kinda spaced out, each letter is separate from the rest. Its a good way to start, but try finding ways to fit them together before adding the extra lines so that the letters share some of the same angles which will make the tag flow better

    Just do straight letters. None of your "extesions" flow or have a pourpose on any on your letters. It's gross and impractical. Work on letter structure and uniformity

    Don't worry my first tag sucked waayy worse than yours lmao
    "Flow" is an obscure word, but it kinda refers to the way letters fit together and create movement, momentum, and sort of one object out of several letters. start simple, then try giving the letters the same angle or warping them all the same way. the reason some tags are so illegible is because the letters are so exaggerated, rather than just adding random extensions. You kind of just have to write your tag over and over again in regular letters and eventually you'll see places where a line can be extended or added, but you can't force style which is something im still learning.
