    my suggestion...

    avoid the pointy edges like in the first one
    and use 1 single line for the 'holes' in the R and the O.
    You know what I mean by that? Dont use a circle, just s 'slit'.
    And then make the 'down slit' of the Y match the spacing.
    I'd also have the bottom line of the L curve upwards.
    In all those ones you have (especially #2) the last line
    curves down and bends out the shape from the rest of the throw.

    hope that's what you wanted.

    K7!

    throwie number one... cept like the secon green one... altohugh I hate ya R its like missin on the top left where you put that pointy part of whatever, i dont like it much. The O is alright and so is the y, cept i personally like all the same sized letters, but yea... the style you got goin with that one is the best just keep changin it arounda bit til it looks better... i think ya heaidn ina good direction with that one.

    Also... I like the number 2 it's more or less a throwie to me. Although people like Ja do those. For exmaple... ya throwie #1 would be Ja's throw with the lowercase a and the next would be the one he does that just traight simple letters with his capital A. I just dunno, i don't think those are throws really, more just simples that are done up quick when bombin... throws to me or more the traditional bubble letter type shit.

    I hear you all. traditional bombing I agree should be round and bubbly. The pointy thing is something I have been f-ing around with. It doesnt really work in less you perfect it, which I certainly havent. Kilo7- your right man, The slits would work better, I am going to give that a try. and Jayfo, your absoultly right about sizing the letters in agreement. Iget a little out of hand. anyways I am going to work on that also.

    my thought for you .... use them all ... and then add more to the mix. the more you do the same ones that are slightly diffrent and add new ones the better you will be over all. kinda like ... say you choose one of these and run with it all the time you will only ever get better at that one, not showing much diversity. a good example of a big name writer who has tons of diffrent styles .. totem !!! look at more and more of his stuff and see what i mean.

    just dont hold yourself to one style !!!! it will hurt your style in the long run.
