    On the second one, if all the letters were the same size it would look much better.

    duh a handstyle is supposed to flow, if ya writing the shit quick ye let it flow out and the letters join, if you fuck around with sperating letters that just a waste of time man...

    all of them are total shit except the second one, thats where you should be. not trying to connect letters not trying to tweak shit. simple straight letters imagine doing a roller on your paper lol. make them all the same size too please for the love of god man..

    hating anything but simple

    yo guys thanks for the pointers, but seriously yall seem to hate on any sketch that people post and all yall ever say is stay simple... like how do ya mean anyway, i'll try it, don't get me wrong i know i'm still a toy in this graf game but when ya stay simple and make block letters how do you advance it from there? yo could yall maybee post up some of your early block sketches just so i can see what yall getting at. well props for tryin to educate me yall. peace.

    Re: duh

    Why ask for pointers...and then when they are given to you say that they are wrong?

    because that shit doesn't help, i'm still to see anyone on this forum give any pointers other than stay simple, the shit up there is simple, i've done way more complex shit before but folks told me to go simple so i go simpler and yall say its too complex, whats complex about writing yer handstyle out, putting an outline and a lil shadow on. mofukas want me to write blocks, blocks suck man, and if yall say you gotta start there then you stupid u should develop a handstyle first and how can ya develop a flowing handstyle doing blocks, shits stupid. peace

    that last one is simple and what you should be doing now, just do VERY simple block letters like this font lol and once you get those down to where they look good (for what they are simple block letters) add a little style to em, bend em a bit add spikes or projections but whatever you do it should flow good together
