    tell you what elbow
    it ain't ethical for me to reverse another mod's decision, but I'll ask about it.
    let me just stash this for minute and will get back at you :)

    anybody who posts 5 sketches of the same shit incomplete in this thread is gonna be deleted. ESPECIALLY if its weak. I get the community here isnt very big anymore, and the quality of shit posted in this thread has gone waaaaaaaaay down. This is the way shit is run though.

    tukes has clean lines and a simple style. the y is shitty, and his 3d got a little screwy, but its better than a lot of stuff he's tried to post in here, and do you see him bitching about all the shit of his I have deleted? no.

    check the elbo sketch. I get it pesk, he's your boy, but look at it. the background? the character? the letters? trying to add a bunch of arrows and extensions doesnt make a piece better. Even If you are trying to be satirical or ironic about the use of arrows in a sketch, you can still make your extensions have flow and not look extremely forced, which is a reason why someone would be considered intermediate.

    its nothing personal ma dude I just believe elbo has better structure than u and from what I hear his shit keeps getting deleted while those ugly ass Rs of urs tuke floats around in the intermediate thread..
    Its not a matter of if his my boy or not .. set aside the background and extensions yeah his lines are sloppy and its not the best style but if u want to delete someone then tukes "R" is the biggest candidate on this page but I get it hes ur boy..

    really? tukes "R" is not wack?? ur obviously still high on heroine take a good look again when u sober up..

    Lol I have no friends here. Tuke can eat a dick.

    "set aside his lines and background" which is half the garbage on that page, okay. "its not the best style" okay. So we are in agreement that its not intermediate.

    If the gripe is why is tuke staying and elbo isnt, then I am more than happy to send em both back to the toy thread. And to be clear, a year ago neither of them would be in this thread. But the lack of posting, and the abundance of butthurtness around this site these days, a lot of shit is getting through the cracks and not being deleted.

    How about I just start a thread, with no skill requirement. Where we can all talk, post pics of whatever kind of sketches you want, give crits, and we can all be happy and shed all the bullshit crying about deletion.

    how does that sound yall?

    I shall stay in the toy thread and thanks guys I won't post incomplete shit only fully finished . All the arrow were a joke tho and perpuusly forced I thought the letter with out the arrows wore pretty good and flowed nice like the el being the b backwards the o was a bit forced .And I though my lines have improved alot but that's cool thanks for all the words of "advice " . Im off to go draw my toy letters . And toy backgrounds

    I'm gonna have to disagree

    firstly with whoever's still saying tuke's not intermediate worthy... you need to lower your fucking expectations for the INTER thread in the TOY forum. you want high level pro shit, go to the main picture forum.

    secondly, I think elbow's in the right place here. He, like the rest of us in this thread, are beginners and working our way to getting good.
    One look at his sketch and you can clearly see there's massive effort being put into his letters. Let's not kid ourselves, this isn't about the background (lol @ whoever's making that argument) this isn't about cleanliness, or colors or whatever. All this shit gets pro'ed in a month or two. Letters take time and are the main judging parameter when deciding if someone's intermediate or not.

    I say elbow belongs here as he is clearly demonstrating letter understanding, practice and effort into getting better.. he's trying to get creative early with his extensions and structure and whatnot (which is a sign of future greatness, but too early for it nonetheless)

    Anyway, elbow, please stop posting unfinished shit.

    Here's a photo of the kind of shit I'd consider toy and not-intermediate-worthy, vs Elbow's work.
    Let's just look at the science in there:

    absciforums.s3.amazonaws.com_2016_12_254570_00cdbaa1c7db3bbd860418a1763b93ce.jpg

    This^ doesn't belong here. it's totally toy.
    Elbow does. coz it's also toy (like us all in here) BUT Intermediate.
    get it?

    Let's move on please.

    Thanks for this! Problem is that intermediate is relative to each individual. But hey im not here to stir negativity it's only a internet forum that unfortunately has died down a bit. That obviously has lead to a decline in skill. If the toy shit gets deleted take it as fuel to improve!

    I'd rather be the garbage man at least I know were the garbage is

    These were scraps . It was a peace of 3/8 flat stock that I welding about 1/4 inch thicker and half inch wide letters . Then I cut around the weld with a torch . Then welded it to a peace of 1/16 gauge so it would stand up the thing above the E is a light pole made out of a Carter pin and a plasma cutter tip . The bolts on the ground are ment to be tires and the other shit is trash .

    Edit some better lighted pics so you can make out the depth also might help those lacking with Shines ,3d And lighting .

    now that's dope!

    in keeping with the metallic theme, here's a chromie with the homie from another crew... mie??

    photoshopped: highlights (because they can't be seen on the chrome), dark highlights (because I forgot to add them to the actual wall), and overall grayscale filter on the whole photo (minus the colored 3D)

    now my question is this: had I not mentioned that stuff, would you still have figured out what was 'shopped and what wasn't? in other words, is my 'shopping convincing/realistic? trying to get a job in the field and looking for opinions...
