  1. thanks for crits all...

     

    ...likin that renk as well..

    ..as for stealing, i stole a lot of prismas, decos.. and expensive design markers a long time ago, then found a cheap 100 pack of markers for less than 20$ that i liked better so i dont know.. pointless story..

  2. ENKM - not bad, the connector things look bad imo, and the bottom part of the k needs work but yeah, just keep messin with it...

     

    SIK - no, you can't do good 3d. if you really want to get better, stop trying to impress 12oz, and start trying to impress yourself. take a break from posting any pictures and just do upper-case simples with no 3d for yourself for a while (not 1 or 2 days, maybe 1 or 2 months or more...).

    BRICK

     

    ^try to make your letters look like that in a size 1000 font or whatever.... really, not hating on you, im just trying to help you improve at a quicker rate, you just need to do it....

     

    ..now someone give me some crits...

  3. random stuff i learned from sketchin, hope it helps...

     

    (*stuff that may help in developing your style further as well darkeist, but for anyone it helps...)

     

    PROPORTIONS - the width of your letters is important. if it goes from fat to skinny.. why? if all of your bars are even, and the bend of one is too thick or skinny, it will throw the whole sketch off... and if you have a flat F at the start of a sketch and go to a round or cooked R at the end, for example, it can throw it off...

     

    NEGATIVE SPACE - the space in your sketch that is not letters/etc... if you have a huge gap in between the first and second letters of a five letter name, and the last three letters have very smal gaps/no gaps, this will make a sketch look weird... you can also use negative space sometimes as well to form letters, shapes, add-ons, etc... but keep it sensible and dont over-use it...

     

    ADD-ONS - add ons suck. people who do this transform letters into unique shapes... use the letters to form your sketches as much as you can... add ons can obviously be good but only as an extension of the letters and/or if they compliment the negative space in between the letters...

     

    PATIENCE - when sketching, take a second to look at the initial outline and think, 'does this makes sense? is it proportional, or should i make this end different?'.. i probably should take more time than i do.. but dont rush an idea. do a quick outline, look, adjust pieces/add stuff... and then go over it darker or re-do it or whatever... but dont settle for trash from yourself...

     

    sorry for the book...

     

    and a flaker from the toy battle thread from earlier for the talk...

  4. you got all the proportions fairly spot on.

     

    this is why its the best thing youve done... proportions are probably the most important aspect of sketching and people seem to throw crazy nonsensical proportions out wayy too much...

     

     

    ...take a second and look to see if both sides of your line make an aesthetically pleasing shape, otherwise it will just look awkward when you're done...

  5. ^ the width/size/shape of the extension was not complimentary to the piece itself... its all proportions and it all comes with mastering simples and slowly building from there, ...i guess those that know will know, or maybe im just full of shit haha...

  6. this thread just made me want scotch....
