Wasnt trying to flow the letters into one another, I actually did each letter individually but they lined up so that it looks like they were connected, wel the nak at least. but nah lol
thanks tho g
@Json I would stay away from straight letters. They take longer to do and dont look as good IMO. Other than that all there is to say is keep practicing. try not to put too much thought into it, let your hand flow.

@Json: You'll get it just keep practicing. Trying varying the size of some of the letters. Can give a good look to simple tags
This is my first attempt at a tag...so please, please, please crit. I want to improve, so any suggestions are welcomed and appreciated!
@nosmoking: You're getting better. That white truth is looking cool.

Whoops didn't realize I'd already posted, sorry for the double post.
Thanks bugs appreciate it. Yeah, I love fat cap flares they look fkn dope when done properly. I've just gotta work on getting that one liner consistent, kind of getting the perspective / symmetry down - I like the one I posted above (with the white marker), it's got that perspective I'm talking about as in all the letters are in proportion - that's what I got to work on getting consistent. When I've got that down I reckon my can tags will come out looking even better, then all I gotta do is develop some can control and that one liner should be coming out pretty nice with some fat cap flares.
Thanks to everyone who's critiqued my shit on here, definitely appreciate it, not only in the way of developing a nice tag, but also in developing my actual awareness of what looks good and what doesn't. I'm definitely starting to notice when I'm drawing and trying out new things that stuff I would of thought looked nice in the past, I'm able to pick up flaws in, so bit by bit I'm getting there. Graff ain't easy, takes work.
I love fatcap writing.
I used a shitty spray I had lying around here just because I felt this sudden urge to go bomb one night, 4 years after I'd stopped. And now I'm taking this shit seriously, I worked on this tag for 4 days straight, but I'd like to know what you guys think, of course it can be improved. Just let me know what you think in all honesty. This one feels really natural for me though, I do this in 5 seconds or less, I love the feeling of writing it
@truth the R has like no shape to it. Try to define it and make it look like a R. Cuz right now it looks like a H or N. And the U and T look like one letter can barely read what it says. Right now it looks like it says Thith
yeah thanks loon as always appreciate the feedback. i can see what you mean and i agree legibility is a pretty important part of a tag too something that has been playing in the back of my mind with this one liner but now you point it out its more obvious. ill keep aware of it and see what i can do, i think this one is leaning more towards having the r and u defined:

I'm liking it, but the T and H kinda end up looking like a H and a N, it'd probably be fine if there was less of an outward curve kinda thing on the second part of the H, you feel?
yeah working on the R and U a bit, legibility and yeah getting a bit impulsive too anyways

@Truth not gonna front dude, your handstyles flow so much better than all your other stuff that you post. No disrespect or anything, I just see where you excel at the moment. ^ dude gave some good crits, and good job following through on correcting it. You should try some more curved flow throughout and see where it gets you (recommend just on paper to save paint). Also try changing up the letters to all capital, it might help with legibility.
Looks fkn dope bugs handstyle is rockin
@Truth where you from?
@truth: You should have the U straighter without the tops leaning in and the H's bar maybe a lil taller.
testing out new things, crits are welcomed
