    Alright dude thanks. Sorry I ain't trippin. I guess I wasn't necessarily comparing my throws to bates or revok or anything else, more just throwing out examples of simple styles and why those are considered good throws and why mine isnt. Again I'm trying to improve. I get letter structure and all that, but throwies seem to just break the rules and that's what I'm trying to do. There's so many different styles of throws out there. I struggle with the B a lot, having it be my first letter, so the rest of my letters sort of feed off that. So maybe having a decent starting B might help me make the style better?
    And I'll check out the guys you recommended and look for inspiration thru that.

    And I don't mean for you to spot your own stuff, but like maybe just do a throw in my name so I can get an idea? Idk. I wouldn't copy it at all. But just study your lines and flow

    Guys we've been seriously fucking up here. Let's all just look at other people's work and never attempt to do our own thing because it just might suck. Then idk's opinion of us would be bad. Then we'd have to kill ourselves. There is only one true graffiti style and we need to admit that to ourselves right now or we will continue on the road that will lead us to nowhere but damnation and suckitude.

    I submit, IDK. Tell me I am shit, please, and I will no longer attempt to develop anything but what you say is right. Please tell me I suck and I should kill myself. Thy will be done, amen.

    Lmao ^ awesome. You're right eats. Graffiti is about self expression and there's plenty of styles out there but the most important one is your own and what you can push yourself to do as an artist. I'll just keep doing my thing and hopefully I'll be out of this toy stage before too long. Actually I don't even think I'm a toy anymore. I can do some solid tags. I know what flow is and I can still do some good stuff. My throwies just need work.

    Amen

    Well honestly, knowing the history if graff and it's evolution, there were people that changed the game by pushing different styles. When people first started doing burners some else saw it and said hey, I can do that, but I'm gonna add some arrows and some funky colors to it. Then another dude said hey that's stupid shit right there but I'm gonna do it this way, and then he came up with a piece with a 3D and some crazy ass background. Then some other dude saw that and said nah that's shit bro, I got one better, then he did a wildstyle wicked piece with some crazy extensions and drop shadows and shit all over the place and it looked like it was literally floating in mid air...and his name was odieth.

    But freal tho. Style is all in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone is gonna like the art. For starters, you think MQ is dope. But I see that throw and I see no creativity at all. Some people like revok, some people hate him. It's whatever. Graffiti is meant to please the eye sure, but it's also meant to piss people off and prevoke emotions. Looks like everyone here is prevoking yours...

    Also lookit guys like DAIM and DOES. do you think those guys styles were recognized right away? Even now some people don't like their stuff. Just is what it is

    So tell me, what is style without self-expression?

    Mq has one of the best throw of all time. You disagreeing makes your opinion invalid

    I really don't think you realize the impact he has had on Graff history.

    Opinions can't really be invalid man. They're opinions. Personal preferences can't be regarded as "wrong"

    And no I don't know the impact he had. But I'm always up for a lesson. Got a good place i can look him up? cuz I definitely wanna know more.
