    its not a played out style... its just the average way of beginning to understand style. i remember using those kind of letters when i first started out. but for real... ur piece is very consistent and works well together thru each letter. it could stand to get rid of a few extra things that i can see... but youll figure out what im talkin bout later. just keep studying different styles and dont be afraid to give it a try. if piecing isnt ur thing... then just write jyse over and over again in simple letters. like the letters u see painted on the windows of wendys or burger king advertising a 99 cent burger. i dunno why... but i find those letters very captivating. maybe its just the bright colors. thats another thing... dont be afraid to use different colors. if u have no idea about what colors look good together, then just use the same basic color... just mix up the tone of the color. like red.... get different shades of red and start making designs within ur piece. fill it light red... put in sum designs with medium-toned red.... and put sum darker designs in there every now and then. i dunno... add highlights if u feel the need. dont focus so much on makin the letters simple and blocky... have fun with it. overexaggerate things.... make big round letters... stretch em out and distort em. i dunno.... give it a shot and come back to post what ur progress looks like. i hope i even make sense right now... im kinda out of it. laters.

    thanks for comments and replies... pretty helpful.

    and dork, yea ill play aorund with stuff... and i guess maybe piecin is and isnt my thing. It's fun, but I never seem to really feel like it lol. Tho when I get into a piece I'll have to finish, but yea. I'll start doin more cuz they are cool and it will help me improve. I just gotta start makin some different thickness in my letters amybe also try throwin some curved lines and stuff in there.... just see what happens i guess.

    and with color, i hate colorin... usually i use a single color, maybe two in the fill then grey for the 3D and yellow around the outside lol. It's simple and easy since most of the time if i try anyhtin else it looks weird haha.

    and umm... yea, most of the time i just scribble throws and hands on paper over and over and once and a while think of a cool simple letter style that i would put up ona wall or somethin like this (it's old but whatever..... you get the idea... i just think of lil simple things like this a lot to try and do soemthin new)
