Good time with the homies
Love me some blackletter
Quarentine painting with the MTN hardcore classics
Blue krylon does not cover gold ironlak lol
Leaving this one here. Had fun experimenting with colors on this. Really happy with how the static on the exclamation turned out
I'll try to get pics to work
Another freeway burner
Quarentine? I spent some time at the trackside
my first ever throw (sabotaz paint & shit caps it's not just me) i recognize it's messy as all hell, gimme harsh criticism i need it
First wall, first time with a can. Pretty sloppy but what do you guys think?
I would aim to make them more like these 2
You're trying a lot of different looks which is cool but you're missing your basics, the things that will give your pieces "the look" and make them pop. Crits/examples.... you did this piece twice and missed your outer in the negative space of the O and D, you need that yellow in there to help bring out the form of your letters. But then at the same ime, you would need to lose the yellow from your fill (for now) as it's the same color as your outer and that might take away a little from your piece.
Personal opinion, painting dirty is for tags, throwies, and such. Always clean up your piece. Look where the top right bar of your I comes to a point over your D, but it's fuzzy overspray there. Just take your green and cut that to a nice sharp point. Look at that yellow piece w/ the red halo/arrow, at each place where your black outline comes to an end, I would take your yellow and just shave the end of the black back to a nice tapered point. Also go back with your yellow and clean up all those black drips. As your can control improves these issues will occur less.
Pretty toy, but seen worse. Look at the sketch you posted. Look at what you painted. The sketch looks better and that's mainly because of the 3D being on it- the piece needed that along with an outer outline or shell. All that purple is what people usually call bubbles or clouds. Yours looks like your piece stepped on gum and it's all smushed underneath. I'm assuming that you kind of tried to use that as your outer outline/shell which is why there's so much of it? Either way, I'd say less is more on that, you want your letters more visible and standing out. You could have gone dark purple clouds with the lighter purple as your outer/shell. Or you could have done the purple clouds and used white or some other color as your outer/shell.
Thanks for the honest critique. Been sketching in the black book for a while now and I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew (maybe that's why it looks like stepped on bubble gum haha) should have known the skills wouldn't transfer that easily. Getting some of those details are pretty tricky and I feel if I went for the 3d it would have been an even sloppier mess. Just glad to get a first experience and get an idea what to expect and what to work on.
It really needs to be there from now on. Also same thing I told someone above, clean up your piece as you go or at the end. All the places where your black oversprayed, or you overshot the line, use your other colors to trim that back. These are all small things that will automatically give your piece an upgrade. They're also beginner basics. For next time I'd also bring that O up more into the space between the L and S, maybe thin the back left bar of your S out a little to help the O show.
