    alright, since the other sketch thread is gonna die in a bit, I'll just use this till the new one is made.

    Here's a sketch I did a few nights ago. I tried to make a simple a bit more complex. Some of the shadings pretty off, but I was really only focusing on keeping the letter structure in proportion. Tell me what you think.

    hmmm

    I think you should forget the arrows and bits and stuff and make basic simple letters. Look at some type letters or letters in advertising. Don't worry about making it look like "graffiti". Get your basic proportions straight. Bite somebodies simples.
    What does it say anyway? CQEB. COEB? It's simple, but still not reading.

    start simple simple SIMPLE!
    take out all the arrows and connections for the time being and work on basic letterform. put all the arrow and whatnot back in once you have the basics down.

    dont use a whole page for one big simple... make smaller simples... and numerous ones all over the page. try to make ur letters flow instead of making them so blocky. study other people's work to get an idea of what a simple is suppose to look like. take my 2 cents and call me in the morning.

    Thanks for the feedback all, I'm working on some simpler stuff now, I shouldn't jump the gun right to a complex. I'll probably post more soon. Again, thanks :)
