    Alright, here's the "deal". I got serious with "graffiti" since late May of 2003. I've showed interest in it since like... the 7th grade. I liked it but never really tried anything. And I admit, I bit letters during those days. I only bit for school stuff. [Projects mainly] Biting letters from the internet didn't seem like a big deal at the time. I didn't care, I wasn't a graffiti artist. Then, bboying came along. And as you may know, biting is a big deal in bboying. That's when I learned that biting wasn't "ok". Now, I'm a sophmore in highschool. I only know one person who writes in my city. I've known this person for like a year and a half. [Met through bboying] I didn't know he wrote until some time last year. Then, I finally asked him if he could teach me stuff. He agreed and said I should get my can control down. [He said this after he saw my sketch] I don't have any cans or caps yet. I decided to work on paper unitl I get shit down. I'm ordering Krylon cans this thursday. [Hopefully] I'm going to practice in a few spots I found...

    you seem to have all the right approaches. holding off painting till you can put up some quality stuff, starting simple. so its all practice from here, just draw non-stop, each time you draw it will add more to your personal bag of tricks !! keep it up.

    Thanks ERIZENO. Didn't see your post unitl now. Computer is a lttle slow. Probably from the fuckin' pictures. Yeah, I think I am going to resize them.

    * Close up on the face. Took it from a crooked angle again.

    * Another close up on that character.

    [note on my character] I didn't bite that character. I'm just so used to seeing that "lazy eye lid" look. Another thing is, my friend said it looked like the blue alien in the SONY commercial. Haha. That's true. It does look like it but with the exception of a smaller head. Anyways, I keep my characters fairly simple because when it's time to paint, I won't have as much trouble as painting a more detailed/difficult character.

    DAMN IT, I didn't se the other replies until now as well.

    I understand what your saying [about the biting situation]. My friend/mentor said the same thing. Said biting is ok but don't bite completely. Change it around a bit or something. Oh, and KRYLON sucks? I thought Belton, Krylon, and Montanas are the best or some shit. Oh well, whatever works. Thanks for the heads up. I was about to order some krylon paint this thursday. [I can't rack them from anywhere, there aren't many stores near my area] AND, I write MELK not MILK. I just found out that someone writes MILK. I think I might change my name again. I'm not sure. I really don't want to though.

    I'll be sure to do that. Weird fuckin' sn though. Oh yeah, my prisma markers came in yesterday. I'm just fuckin around with them right now. It sucks though, I only have 12 colors. :( And another thing, I think I already fucked up my "canary yellow" one. It ain't really yellow anymore...

    Send me your markers

    first of all im going to tell you straight off the bat... change you name

    people will give you guff for it

    there are already two established milks.
    milk tfp
    and mylk AP(who gets shit for writing milk.)

    so change your name..

    second practice alot more keep it simple as youhave been.. you havef a long way to go young jedi..good luck

    although im telling you graffiti is a fad... in a few years people will laugh at you for doing it.. like.. being a raver.. or an inline skater or wearing ufo pants....

    Oh hell... I really don't want to give up that name... It's like losing a pet... I never had a pet though...

    I have a question though, are the following names taken?

    1. MEGS
    2. SMEG
    3. WREM or WREMS
    4. GNOME

    Ahh... I'll just keep writing a name unitl something pops in my head. Thanks Al, that was really helpful. Damnit, all that time wasted. :( Oh well...


    And Wunka, it's obvious that you are trying too hard to be like me. Damn kid, how many times do I have to telll you to stop jockng me. HAHAHA. Just kidding. If we really are alike, we should "battle" in that battle thread... Uhh... I think it's sort of "[word here]" to battle over the net. But It's all for fun and games. I understand...


    ps_ Ahhhhh shit!!! I have to change my name and change the name of this entire thread. Either that or just start a new one later on. [A few weeks from now]

    yo MELK...

    papers cool, but it's no wall. Just start rocking mad tagz in your hood in can. Then from there i would say get yourself a nice D-L spot with walls and start bustin' out your throwies. Once you got ur throwies down start wrecking some walls and highways. Get yowrz shorty.
