    there's an arrow and a 'dome cap' on the top of the first A.

    But they seem to share a line, when one should certainly be above the other.
    Know what I mean? The underlap is overlapping and that confuses me.

    other than that... I give it a B.

    You've got the ballance down, but the center line should be more defined.

    when i am painting, i find its easier to paint from an outline that is just an outline, no colour, no 3Ds or anything, just your outline and add everything from there. this should help you get your letters onto the wall better without having to be confused and thinking of 3D, and since it all goes one direction, its easier to just add on after you have your letters done the way you want. good luck, i hope that helped you a bit.

    well i think it sucks , weak letters with weaker do-dads all over .

    first get some good , but simple letter structure . then move on to some 'wild' stuff .

    First I was like "dope", than I was like "nope"

    Or in other words:
    At first glance it looks good, but upon closer inspection it appears as though you don't have the skills necessary to make that weird squiggly ass shit look good.

    ...I like it...

    ...your N and D have extensions in them that make them look like A's.
    ..and the D needs to be defined a bit.

    it should look nice if well painted...

    most of these fuckers are talking shit.

    i say just paint it. its really good for your first piece. if thats your FIRST piece, then i think you dont need pointers and just paint the shit. keep on doing what your doing and eventually youll get better. trust me.

    post it after you paint it.

    it looks like DONDI piecing drunk and blindfolded in like 1977. which means it's not terrible. The more I look at it the less I like it though.

    I don't know about painting that for your first piece, by the way. Do you mean you've not painted anything before or do you mean you've painted simples and stuff, just not something complicated?

    JUST FUCKING PAINT IT.... you only learn from experience
    you could do six hundred pieces in you blackbook all nicely finished with
    great proportions, and creative connections
    but since youve done none on a wall it will suck ass when you paint it
    so just paint, paint as much as you can to get used to the can....
    its taken you 8 years to get used to a pencil
    how long will it take to get used to a can of paint

    kids today... just wont learn
    the process in theory is:
    rack supplies-have lots of suplies-lots of supplies
    means lots of practice-practice makes you better-
    more supplies racked-more supplies means you
    increase your piece total, and your all city-fame.

    buy supplies-worried that your gonna waste your $2.50
    on something wak-worried about wasting money prevents
    you from practicing-no practice makes your work look
    like shit-less supplies and less and less practice make
    you look toy for life.

    choose the path you may. peace
