    whoa, that almost sounded like a complement..j/k:D

    try doing your 3-d left, right, or down, rather than at an angle. helped me getting my letters down.

    the A was cool.
    i very seldom like to see arrows on graffiti.
    i mean, it takes some good work to be able to use arrows correctly and collaborate them into your peices.
    dont take this as a diss, im doin what you said, tellin you how you can fix it up and jazz.
    but id suggest finding a good way to end your letters instead of wrapping them behind other letters and ending them with arrows.
    i think if an artist does use arrows, it shouldnt be on the end of an arrow, but on a bar you add to a letter to give effect.
    (ie: sever)
    i had actually just drawn somethin that said SWAE to show you what i meant, but i was gonna clean it up and edit it on the computer (yea im a toy) and my software fucked up.
    i may try it again later if you want.
    hope i helped you some.

    think 'Line Logic'

    some of the line on the first one don't make sence
    in terms of relative proportions. The go from thin to thick
    were the shouldn't. Try this.... (because I'm here to help)
    Make all the major lines (the one that form the letters) EXACTLY the same width,
    and make all the minor lines (your extra detail lines i.e. arrows) EXACTLY half the width of the major lines.
    Dont do any under/overlaps yet, they'll only throw your proportions out.

    s'ok them?

    at least you got a descent handstyle..I would rather see a OK piece, and a nice hand, that a good piece and a horrible hand. You are on the right path. keep on keepin on in the sucka free.
