Art Expression of Methods Thread

Discussion in 'Paper Chase' started by Propaganda, May 19, 2003.

    This thread is for the use of many writers that are beginners, who are practicing, learning new styles, and just developing in such ways. It is also for the free use of critism and proper learning and getting ideas from other writers to see how their art is progressing and how they can get better. For me myself Im learning as well so I will be accepting much grattiude from many writers and letting them express their ideas and thoughts upon others artwork. Guess you can call it another version of a Toy or undergraded thread. Please lets refrain from shit talk but most of the time as we all know that is impossible. I will start of on the bottom with a few and hopefully post more latter on the day. Feel free to post and lets keep the thread open.

    I'd say you took a little more than just the S. You must have been hungry, if you know what I mean. True, as a learning process biting is part of coming up. You have to learn from somewhere, right? Right. But biting and then posting on here is like shooting yourself in the foot. No matter how good you are. That said...

    Personally, I like that you posted a diverse selection. To me that shows you have the ability to give range. A good quality in a writer. But, obvioulsy, you're not there quite yet. I think the third psot down is a great starting point for you to concentrate on. I know it's frustrating to stay simple when you really want to go wild. But working with letters like the third post will only help you to progress that much faster. You'll learn how to manipulate each letter into the next with such flow and ease that when you do finally make the jump from 'Toy' to 'Up and Coming' you'll have a nice solid foundation of style laid out.
    So I say, for now, ditch the crazy stuff and keep working in the style posted on the third post. It's simple but has a little bit of funk to make it interesting.

    I do paint on walls yes. That does improve my skills a tad bit every time. My feelings are sometimes they come out better on the wall than paper. Here are a few more flix of pages from my current black book.

    You're getting better, You're still a ways off from being anything to write home about, but thats to be expected at this stage. First of all, you need to calm down with these colors. I know you're trying to express yourself but your color selection is going to hinder what could be workable letters. for your fills try keeping it at one to two colors right now so you can concentrate on your letters. You also need to either stop coloring in your backgrounds or acquire some new markers. Theres nothing wrong with a plain white background, as long as you present it correctly, which leads to my next point.
    On your blackbook pages I personally think you need to stop throwing so much on there. The characters, the sloppy handwriting(work on that), the misplaced tags(keep working on those) and the throwups all next to your piece really take away from the overall presentation of it. If you're going to write something, try not to use "tag" writing, just make it clean and presentable, like girl writing I guess. As well, dont make it look like the sentence you wrote is larger than the piece on the paper, again, it takes away from it.
    on this page:


    if you had left it as a plain brown piece with a pink inline, plain black 3d and the white "shine" in the letters you would have been fine. Your line widths on it are a little screwy in spots, and I don't like the arrows, but its advancement.
    on this page:


    If you had filled it in plain blue, and got rid of the character you would have been ok. the sketchy background just looks poor. Also, your "D" lacks definition- the left bar seems to be skewed as well as being too hidden behind your "Y", which i recall was a problem you had on some earlier sketches. The main vertical bar of your "L" seems to not be congruent.

    I think those two sketches, as well as the little sketch of the word "drunken" are your strongest. I'd keep working in that direction if I were you.

    Keep in mind that this is all just my opinion and you can discount it all. You're slowly inching there, and at least you're not shamelessly biting and going over established writers in your area, that I'm aware of anyway.
