UGH.. ANOTHER SELF PROMOTING THREAD

    The "excerpt" below was stolen from my old thread. Click the link below to view the old thread...

    http://www.12ozprophet.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=44065


    So yeah, to sum it all up, I've been writing for about a year. But I didn't consider myself a "writer" until September of last year. That was the first time I actually went out and paint. And no, I did not order those Krylon cans. I got 'em somewhere else instead...


    Anyways, I'm not sure if I should start a thread or not. They're are alot of "toy" threads so I thought to myself "Why add to the bunch?" I never liked the idea of "self promoting". It always seemed like a cheap way to get fame. To get noticed. But I'm not really all about that. As long as I get respect from the wrirers I respect, then that's pretty cool. Ummm... In this thread I won't be posting up every sketch I do. Just ones worthy enough or ones that won't make eyes bleed. And I'll throw in random sketches that I like from friends or just shit I find on the net. Yeah yeah, stolen concept from "The Babble". But I won't be "internet-whoring" as much. Okay, I thing I said enough.... for now..

    *It says Jose. And it's not finished but I might finish it someday. ;)




    More pictures in my next post, there's too much text in this one.

    * This was posted in "The Babble". It's obviously unfinshed. The dude looks pretty fucked up... I know that. I changed the character a bit. I fixed his face. And right now, I'm trying to make his body "slouch" less. I'll post the finished product when I finish it. And trust me, it will be finished. :evil2:

    * This was done ehhh.... in 2004. I have no fuckin' idea. It was a while ago though. I actually like this sketch. The only thing I hate is part of the "E" and that "K". And I don't write AMEK anymore. It's a pretty generic name and I don't want people to be mixing me up with some other AMEK.






    [img]http://img44.photobucket.com/albums/v134/KingBlah/Amend.gif'>
    * I thought this one was alright too. It was suppose to be a 3D but I never got to shading... That's because I was browsing a few threads in BRICKSLAYERS and I saw a few AMEN and AMEND pieces. Once I saw that, I decided to stop writing AMEN/AMEND. I cried for weeks...





    By the way, I'm trying to do "three flicks at a time". So let me dig up some old sketches for you people. The next three flix will be in the next post.



    By the way, I write AEMOR/AEUDI now. I doubt anyone writes that...:lol:
    peace

    ...

    Yup. That's what I am doing now. But that JOSE isn't really a 3D. I meant to make it a 2D but with shading... But I guess I was fucking with that perspective shit and it turned out to look like a "3D". Thanks for the advice.


    And I just noticed that the images are pretty huge... I'll resize the photos from now on... I think.

    EDIT*
    I forgot to mention I suck at shadings. That's another huge reason why I am going back to 2Ds.

    * Some old shit from last year. I think December. Not sure. This is in my old blackbook. It's just some random shit. It's never going to be finished because that blackbook is long gone.




    [img]http://img44.photobucket.com/albums/v134/KingBlah/CER2AMEK1.jpg'>
    * This was way back in September. Back when I was starting out. My friend CER2 was helping me out. Told me about the fundamentals of piecing and like... his graffiti history. Y'know, shit like that. Anyways, this was just some quick shit from him. And when I say quickshit, I mean it was done in like 5 minutes.




    [img]http://img44.photobucket.com/albums/v134/KingBlah/AMEKTHROWUPS1.jpg'>
    * Some more quick shit from CER2. He was teaching me throwups.





    OKAY, I think that's enough for now. I know everything seems so plain so expect full colored pieces in the near future.
    peace!

    I didn't see this. I guess i was posting while you were. Yeah, handstyles and throwups will be on their way. It's too bad I suck at both. :)


    Expect some eye sores...
    peace.

    for what it's worth, i like your stuff. it reminds me alot of kema, which is a good thing. i dont think it's 3d at all either, no more than any other piece that has a 3d on it.
    keep it up.

    Thanks for the kind words seeking but why do you say my stuff looks like KEMA? To be honest, I don't know who KEMA is really... I've only seen a couple of KEMA sketches in that "My stuff with Onorok" thread in paperchase. His stuff is pretty dope. His lines are really thin. Those sketches of his in that thread had a bit of influence on me. But I'm just wondering why you said my work reminds you of his stuff. Because I don't see any similarities... Well, I 've only seen like 3 sketches from him so i could be wrong...

    Seeking, if it doesn't bother you... can you post some of KEMA's shit?
    Thanks.


    I just noticed something... KEMA is AMEK backwards. Shit, I'm cool...
    peace.

    I like it but I'd still like to suggest working on simple letters and getting rid of the arrows and do-hickies. Take an art course to learn more about 3d and shading and such. You look like you could turn out to be a pretty good artist, graffiti or otherwise.

    everything on here is old, but you'll get the idea.
    i just think that alot of your shapes are reminiscent of very simplified kema stuff. especially the amek sketch. and again, im not saying you're biting him at all, just some similar ideas. especially the real big blocks and extensions that come off of letters.

    Heh. That's the cloud picture right? That cloud is not too bad. Especially for pen. The shading is good too. I might scan some old drawings of mine...
