    well... I haven't tried workin ona piece since the rica one that lacked letter structure/flow as Got showed me. So then my friend asked me to write KNP for him for his girl (K standin for his name, N for 'n/and, and P for her name). So I worked on this tonight and first did just the letters and tried to make em flow and look alright on their own then did it on another piece of paper and added detail.

    Well here's the Rica one (my version and Got's showin my letters)

    only seein the rica one

    you need work, in my opinion... i didnt see any of your other sketches so i dont know how youve improved.. but i wouldnt make them so kinked out you know what i mean.. unnecisary bends, and blunt bends at that.. but thats just opposite of my style, my style is more curvey but whatever works for you man.. but the way i do my letters are, for an H, i would make the first bar with whatever bends and shit i want, then the other with whatever bends and shit i want, then i do the horizontal dash thing, again, with whatever bends and shit i want... then i fill it and outline only the lines i want shown, it makes the letters look a lot smoother..

    i dont know if you care about that and i dont even know if im really good enough to give you an opinion of my own but i did anyways.. just dont stop man, the last thing i want to see is someone who likes this shit stopping because they dont think theyre good or because of some other stupid shit.. but yeah you shoulda also lose that silly arrow :D

    thanks for the opinions man. And yea, i know some people dont feel the straight style as much as curves. Personally the straight style makes mroe sense to me and i like it... that's why I do it. I wanna perfect it to my own... since i see it not that often. Like sp.one, some spade, some cope, some king157, etc do straight styles sometimes but that only a few guys, mad people do curvy stuff and yea, ill stop talkin.

    alright thanks got... and yea, I know what ya mean bot an empty space in ya T like in my P. I kinda like havin my whole thing in a sorta imaginary box, usually one spot won't be boxed and that si where i put my tag. By dead letters, i'm thinkin you mean the simple simple stuff, jsut straight up box square letters, I'll show some of that in a sec. I am gonna start tryin to piece, or not piece, but think of letters and improve them in this style everyday from nwo on since I really never do...

    Anywayz, thanks Got and ummm... yea, question bout prismas for you or anyone else, I just outlined the KNP thing with a prisma and they suck for outlines, i wish i could find my nice outline pen but i lost it lol. The prisma kinda like bleeds and shit... this happen to anyone or is it me with lack of skill with the prisma? I jsut got em a few days ago so haven't used em. Anywayz, thanks for advice again Got and to any opinions, shit tak, criticism, or advice in the future...

    i like the KNP, but i agree with everything Got said, the P does kind of look like an E with the arrow comming out of it, and the N looks like an M.. for some reason the N looks like it is bigger than the K and the P, like wider... i like those more than the rica one though..

    and yeah i would also like to see just some straight bar letters to see how that would turn out..

    and about the prismas.. ive had some for a long time and they wouldnt bleed, then yesterday i had to get a few more colors for my ren and stimpy and on parts of it, it would bleed and go out of the outline and kinda look funky.. so im thinkin its because they're new.

    post more..!!


    ---EDIT

    ahhhh, sorry now that i submitted my reply i saw the N better.. it doesnt look bigger anymore, for some reason i was thinking its lowercase but now i see it uppercase. it still looks kinda like an M though.

    thanks for ya opinions shor... yea, at first i was goin for a lowercase N than I saw how i could make it a cool lookin uppercase and i guess it looks like an M too, but i kinda like it... I really don't like my P with the E with an arrow kinda thing like both you and Got said, but I alreyad outlined it and colored the 3D lol. My friend and his girl won't really care since they will think it looks good no matter what, ya know haha? Though I'll be able to tell, but whatever... At least my name don't have any blank voids in the letters... that's why I like it :) Jyce. I really must try doin my name lol, and here are some straight letters, I dunno if this is what Got means (since im not sure what Dead letters are), but whatever. It's like about a month old now, it was one day at school when i was thinkin of new simple stuff that I'd want to paint (stuff that's easy to read for people).

    I have some more stuff I can scan and if you can tell me exactly what dead letters are, I can draw some and scan and post em up.

    Anywayz... that's it for now, peace.

    GOTS DROPPING SCIENCE.

    YEAH MAN WORK ON A BUNCH OF SUPER SIMPLE STUFF NO CONNECTIONS OR FANCY SHIT FOR A BIT. BY THE END OF IT WHEN YOU GO BACK TO YOUR STRAIGHT STYLE YOU WILL HAVE MORE FLAVOR TO ADD TO THE LETTERS MAKING THEM STAND OUT FROM THE FANCY SHIT. IT SHOWS YOU HAVE MORE UNDERSTANDING THAN MOST PEOPLE WITH YOUR SAME EXPERIENCE. SO USE THAT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE AND YOU WILL COME UPTHAT MUCH FASTER. JUST KEEP IT UP, AND DONT GO SO LONG BETWEEN DRAWINGS IT WILL ONLY MAKE IT HARDER WHEN YOU SIT DOWN TO DRAW !!

    What do ya think of the color scheme anywayz? The colors are kinda feminine but since it was for his girl thought it might work out good like that, but dunno.

    Also, it's my first time usin prismas... and I'm curious what do people do to make their work look so damn good?? lol, like it almsot seems as if it's comin out and it's so vibrant. It's crazy... any tips on how to color with prismas would help...

    Also any other opinions on whatever is cool too.

    peace

    Jyce has now been changed to Jyse lol, cuz I like the S better...

    I know it ain't that simple :( but I couldn't help it! lol. I first had the letter small and then did em big and too big (can't scan lol). Then I redid it like that abov and fixed up letters i didn't like. I purposely put no arrows in it... just tell me watcha think, i kinda like it and I like my S for some reason. I have some more ideas that I am gonna draw up tomorrow along with some simple, yes simple straight or dead letters (though I would like someone to tell me exactly what that is lol). Anywayz... ummm yea, that's bout it.
