    roflmao^ holy crap thanks for the props guys... it's actually not my original idea, there's a lotta similar designs and english typefaces that have an arabic look, I just copied the concept and did my own rendition of it. either way, I will be painting this on sunday (I'm worried as fuck about the fill which is going to be a VERY challenging job, especially for me - I'm definitely not experienced enough to pull a gold fill this realistic) and I'll be using a huge 3 meter stencil for the radial design in the background...
    but I will be needing your votes when the poll is up. it's for a battle. I'm glad you like this.

    quick fact: arabs almost can't read this... you guys can because your minds are programmed since birth to read english letters' shaps. your brains associate the round shape for example to the letter O... but the shapes you see in that sketch are arabic, so whenever an arab looks at it and sees that thick base line running through the word, the accents and diacritic dots over and under the letters, and the small spikes at the top of the bars, his mind will automatically associate what he's seeing with arabic letters, and will see the round shape (your O) as a free standing H for example :)))
    I've had that "ohhhhhhhhhhh" effect when showing it to my co workers and friends, I'd show it to them and they go wtf is that? I can't read it (they think it's arabic) and then i tell them it's actually english, you see, here's the N, here's the i, here's the e :p and they'd go aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh alriiiiiiiiggghhhhtttt looool you son of a bitch you hahaha come here you kebab eating, hummus licking, oriental smelling asshole! come! we eat!
    lol... ugh, enough, sorry, I was bored

    but seriously, you guys vote for me when this shit is up

    It looks real good man... What Squint is saying is that you could have made the 3d a little more believable in some areas...

    word, thats what i thought he was tlaking about but i did that on purpose, like i would cut it like that if i were gunna do some fades in the 3d with just the simple stripes its not worth the dead space but im dying to try to drop a 3d with some dope fades in it, hopefully on the next joint or one after
