    Ethik-People are probably gonna tell you to start doing your letters alot simpler...than work your way up. I'd agree with that. Looks interesting though, nice colors and I like the purple coming off it.

    i first opened the thread thinking "this kid prolly sucks"
    then i seen your pic pop up and thought "oh shit that aint bad"
    then i seen the letters and was like "this kid sucks"

    i dont mean it how it sounds...you dont suck, you obviously got some artistic talent and i see a potential style developing there with some posibilities, but like the guy above said, work on basic letter forms first, for this is the essence of your piece...if your base letters suck, your piece sucks..dont matter bout the arrows and the dope color schemes...make your letters your number one priority right now, worry bout the fancy shit after you got that down

    ask joker, he'll tell you how it is

    thanks guys. Yeah thats not my norm. style, i was goin for something a little more abstract. My main focus on this pic was the overall flow. Heres a b/w pic of my normal style that i'm currently coloring. i wasn't planning on showing this untill it was done, but oh well at least you get tha idea.
    sorry for the crappy pic + fotangos resizing.

    Peace + Love

    it seems to me like your style has no taste, no offense its just that first you have to work on style and definition before you can start thinking about color schemes, backround, depth, and perception. You have no direction and no definition and all you did was nonesensicly warp your letters around on the first one so that its just a blob of partial good color.

    I like it..

    Sure, the letters might not be as good as they can be.. But the composition and colours are both great :D

    colors are ill, i know what u were trying to do with the flow, just work on your letter construction a little bit and you'll be able to have blackbook sketches that will amaze writers
