    ....chars or letters????

    Discussion started by CAPS - Mar 11, 2002

    K.... it's been discussed before but I'd like to hear some opinions on writers who specialize in charcters vs. letters. I personally like characters more. I like DAIM and TWIST the most..... not to say fonts aren't cool it's just personal pref. I hear a lot about "If you just do chars all the time, your a toy that's not rounded. " I don't agree but what the fuck ever. Opinions are like shit..... they all stink.


    CAPS........ chars for me please.... two scoops.

    characters are way harder , so if you only do characters for awhile youre gonna have sick letters anyhow , and its like if you bomb alot youll get better control , if you do alot of characters youll have better can control faster , than if you just work on letters

    twist is sick , one of my favs , as well as rhek , and forms

    I agree with aserine, charachters done right, show more skill and can control. Also I've always thought that a charachter next to your piece spices it up hella.:king:

    i think that once youve started doing characters you get to experiment with spray paint as a soft medium rather than, like, always having crisp lines or the standard fillin-outline routine.

    Letters and Charakters are both cool i think. A nice bomb with a charakter to the left or right looks dope :king:
    Dope Gangsta 1 doing the letters and Dope Gangsta 2 doing the charakters so everyone does what he likes :)

    (i got crazy :D )

    Charaters are lovely and make me smile.

    But writing is not writing without writing. You have to have the letters.

    To me its all about the letters. Its all about writing your name. A character thats an accompanyment to the letters, or instead of a letter is cool, but people who make the backgrounds and characters the pre-eminate part of the production, well, it does nothing for me. I think they missed the point. But then, who cares what I think? Oh yeah, you do, or you wouldn't be reading this shit.
    :crazy:

    i give respect to both. they both have different elements and I think doing both helps you to progress in both.

    twist is great, don't get me wrong, but what about giant? and sasquatch?
    and all the others im forgeting?
