    You definitely need to fix the fade. Also fix your letters and your outlines. You made almost every Toy mistake. The up and down things on the T look horrible. Attaching the A and T is typical beginner shit, don't do that. The top of the O is off from the other letters. All the letters are bad. Stick to SIMPLE basic letters. Keep at it on paper until you get something decent. If you're really in this graff thing, don't get offended, take everyone's advice seriously and improve.

    No matter what, always do your outlines last. Fills first, outlines last. I do an outer outline no matter what kind of fill I do. The outer outline makes your piece pop.

    Lol I know it sucks the reason I went out on new years was basically can practice because even though some of my paper shit looked clean I knew if I didn't start somewhere using the can it was going to blow regardless, my first actual thow looked better than this one but I don't have a good picture of it. Like when you say simple do you mean bubble and blockbuster or literally just regular letters? What will get me better with a can?

    the only thing that gets you good can control is more use of the can, that's it. my first tags and throws i laid with my first tag were bad. the more paint i got my hands on and painted i got better control of the can.

    This picture is pretty dark and it was my second real throw up, crits? besides the fact that the baseline is slanted and the o isn't balanced with the P; I recognized that instantly.

    The windchill was -16°F when I did this, so don’t crit me too hard, lol. My fingers are still frozen as I’m typing this, ha. Stuck with only two colors this time, and got to try out my new cans. It was fun. Cold but fun.

    How do you paint at -16? I've tried and those lines are so clean for that Temperature.

    That’s just what the weather app said the windchill was. The real temp was around 5. I parked pretty close and put my caps on and shook the cans in the car, then put them in my coat pockets and walked to the wall.

    I thought it being a lower temperature would make cleaner lines in general though? I mean with the exception of paint freezing and caps more likely to jam up if you don't clear them. The lower temperature means lower pressure in the cans.

    Yeah but doesn't mean you're hands aren't cold.

    So true about the hands though, should buy some cans and use the code for those free coated gloves. But your work is straight as fuck regardless.

    But yeah there's a huge temperature pressure correlation that's half of how refrigeration and dehumidifiers work. Part of the reason you don't leave them in a hot car is because it can get semi dangerous if you fuck with the can afterwards but mostly the paint just comes out looking like you used a broken fat cap. So the opposite is also true, like if you keep it in the shade or even keep them chill the paint will come out smooth. Good shit to know once this winter finally ends

    Yea bro x’s suck ass to do. I find adding some style such as straight edges but other than that I got nothing x’s are just hard. The second one looks pretty good though Ima have to steal that fill and put an orange background on it
