    Still working on my throw... I swapped in an E which makes the whole thing easier to work with. I know it's not there yet but I reckon there's some potential here... any crits would be appreciated.

    ---------------------------

    May as well throw out my opinion on some of the other throws in the thread, take it or leave it. My graff isn't that great and my ability to critique graff / awareness of what works is still in development. Obviously I can tell what looks fucking fresh I mean that's probably one of the reasons we get into graff - seeing other peoples shit and just thinking how good it looks. I'll just offer my suggestions in an attempt to be helpful but take it with a grain of salt it comes down to what you want but hopefully an outside perspective might have some sort of benefit...

    @thespine - the top pic isn't too bad, imo it's got some flow there and I like the letters. I reckon you could do more with that A though and just keep working on making things clean and tidy. I like the one with the black fill, it's got a cool style and it seems to work from my perspective.

    @grabs - I'm referring to your first post on the page. Personally I'm not really feeling the first two pics. I reckon there's potential for a really phat looking throw there but I'd suggest working on getting your letters in proportion and just getting that clean sort of flowy-ness happening. The WOES throw is pretty cool but again I can see your letters are a little out of proportion so just try to get your perspective on lock. The last pic, the top OVAR with the heart on the O looks nice man, just be careful with that A you could probably get it looking less like an O.
    In your second post again I'd just say keep watch on your letter proportion, your coming out with some pretty stylish letters which is cool and there's definitely flow there, but I'd just encourage you to keep an eye on your proportion / perspective / symmetry of the letters and the overall throw. That straight letter DSINE in the 6th picture looks sick man.

    @gooby - looks cool man. Did you do that with cans?

    @cats - stick to the books man, come back with some throws on paper and we'll critique them. You need to actually have a decent basis for a throw before you start painting.

    @beaver - I'd suggest getting a bit more flow into your throw. Maybe work in a repeating pattern along the top of your letters like a point or a right angle or specific curve - you know what I mean? the B E and A all seem to flow together, the V is a bit off though it kind of stands out - in a bad way. It's simple which is cool and you can see the flow happening with the first three letters, maybe just get that V to flow with the other letters, keep that flow running through it, tidy it up a bit and then try adding in a bit more style / tech.

    @big - I would say simplify that up man don't try going so technical. Keep it simple and work on getting the letters to 1. flow together and 2. keep their proportions in relation to the whole throw.

    @TheMadK - I love it man to me it looks like it's all jiving real nicely, love your hand too. Just thought I'd point out your K looks like a H, and also the last letter looks like an E. Are you writing SKIE or SKIZ because it looks like a SKIE in both your throws and your hand.

    @nosmoking I did some of it with cans, it's my first anything on a wall so I have a lot to learn. Thanks. I think the letters on the second throw look awesome- especially the R

    Ah cool man. It's a sweet looking character you've obviously got some skill. I do have to admit it's leaning less towards the graff side from my perspective though, but if you can incorporate that into your style more power to ya.

    I decided to give painting a throw a go:

    @nosmoking I like the U. The E isn't too bad either. But the T and R could use some work. I couldn't tell it was a T if I randomly saw it without knowing what it said. Keep at it.

    @nosmoking: I gotta agree with Jak, the T and R need work. Bottom of the T throws it off kinda looks like a J. The looks kinda awkward compared to the other letters. On the U try not to make the middle line so close to the R's bottom, kinda looks like you messed up. The E's pretty obvious, just clean it up a little. Just focus whenever you're doing a throw up and practice, practice, practice.

    @True Work on the T and R, also dont cross out your own tags bruh that shit looks toy as hell

    @Loon get rid of the tumor off the left side of your L, makes it look like an odd W

    P.S. loon i like your throw it looks tight but the L seems off to me like someone else said kinda looks like a weird W or even an arrow pointing down

    hura that throw looks pretty nice imo

    @loon looks clean, but the "l" is ambiguous...
    @hura the first one is nice. The camo makes the second one not stand out as much.
