    I'm very new to graff in general, and I've been sort of working on my handstyle lately. Any critique to offer on this one?

    I dont understand why people ask on improving handstyles. your handstyle is just something you have and improve on. you cant ask people to give you advice. just take samples of other peoples and then develop it into your own!

    even though people were talking on it like two days ago?

    and tryp, you say youve been working on your handstyle for "like ever"
    ive worked on mine on and off for almost two years.
    youve probably been working on it for what, a week? a day?
    shit takes time.
    im still not good and ive been practicing for a little under two years.

    i think u can ask for advice because theres some styles that eeveryone uses
    around here everyone has their own handstyle but everyone also uses the philly style wickeds and the long skinny style. I would recommend doing letters seperately and tryin to think of a lil hook up of ur own to put intoo em. Or see what letters in ur name are similar and use that to ur advantage. I also experiment with the size of my letter. Sometimes makin the size increas or decrease towards the end of the word and stuff or having the first or last letter bigger.

    i like the top one but just put the name. dont put the date or anything. not specifically at least, i just put 07. you can do without the 818 either cause if thats the area code then everyone there already knows, making it sort of pointless.

    yeah i know exactly what u mean
    that doesnt really happen to me anymore but during daylight or even sometimes at night when im lookin at my tag and doin it i feel like someones watchin or a cars comin/person and the last couple letters look bad

    im tryin to learn how to do it without lookin

    and whoever said chisel tips dont work good is crazy
    chisel tip is the advanced way of handstyle
    it stems back to calligraphy and stuff
    i use chisel tips whenever i can and hold it at a 45 degree angle
    that works best
    if i dont have chisels i use a prismacolor premier metallic silver or a white out pen
    i also have a kiwi shoe polish mop
