    your buddy now's looks like trash (sorry). yours has horrible letters (they'll come with time and practice) but it looks like you are getting the hang of putting paint on the wall

    yes..i agree...now, how about later... krie you could maybe try a shell around the outside of the black(summer squash or any light yellow is always nice w/. chrome and black... maybe some white highlights, and as abc said a little more development of letter style... try to give the letters a more consistent shape..ie: round, square, sharp, etc... anything but blobby, blobby is almost never good, stick with the simplistic effect though. good job!!!

    in a way it does look a little like a N. he should have made the first part of the W higher.

    ok krie since your not to bad of a guy im gonna try and drop some knowledge for ya cause you seem to be heading in the right direction... basic rule learn your letters all R's are the same letter they all have to have the same character istics that make it an R so learn the simplest for of the R (like the font arial) and understand what makes it an R and not a A, once you learn this you can tweak out your letters to extremes but still see how its an R.... 3-d most peices look empty without 3-d to fill space between parts of letters lik between the 2 "legs" of the R. colors... colors always help i cant stress enough how much better this would of looked with a black fill and a orange outline and orange 3-d it just gives ita much more non-blah feel to it... you can take some of the dopest pieces and convert them to black and white and just lose the whole effect...consistency in letters, keep them all somewhat the same size for now like you drew a big rectangle and all your letters are inside of it not taller or wider but all inside it keeps a consitency . and also consistency on style of your letters its kinda hard to word this... you can do a K in one style and a R in another like the K cant look like a onorok k and the R be a revok R you know? the style just has to flow and be uniform.. if you need anymore help send me a email with your AIM SN...

    no no your R looks like a R but i was using that as reference for future letters you may run into learn them well before you start fuckin with em... and as for paint man shit switch labels! rip the barcodes off the 99 cent paint and put it over the barcodes on the expensive shit , register jockeys dont know the difference between colorplace and rusto, but its good how you kept your letters all to one style lol not bad atall for your 5th piece.. i also reccomend buffing the backround first because the shit it leaves between your letters looks ugly lol
