My new sketch

Recommended Posts

Ethik-People are probably gonna tell you to start doing your letters alot simpler...than work your way up. I'd agree with that. Looks interesting though, nice colors and I like the purple coming off it.

i first opened the thread thinking "this kid prolly sucks"

then i seen your pic pop up and thought "oh shit that aint bad"

then i seen the letters and was like "this kid sucks"

 

i dont mean it how it sounds...you dont suck, you obviously got some artistic talent and i see a potential style developing there with some posibilities, but like the guy above said, work on basic letter forms first, for this is the essence of your piece...if your base letters suck, your piece sucks..dont matter bout the arrows and the dope color schemes...make your letters your number one priority right now, worry bout the fancy shit after you got that down

 

 

ask joker, he'll tell you how it is

thanks guys. Yeah thats not my norm. style, i was goin for something a little more abstract. My main focus on this pic was the overall flow. Heres a b/w pic of my normal style that i'm currently coloring. i wasn't planning on showing this untill it was done, but oh well at least you get tha idea.

it seems to me like your style has no taste, no offense its just that first you have to work on style and definition before you can start thinking about color schemes, backround, depth, and perception. You have no direction and no definition and all you did was nonesensicly warp your letters around on the first one so that its just a blob of partial good color.

Sure, the letters might not be as good as they can be.. But the composition and colours are both great :D

colors are ill, i know what u were trying to do with the flow, just work on your letter construction a little bit and you'll be able to have blackbook sketches that will amaze writers

I do like the colering on the first one. I am glad you are doing your own thing. I think that the piece could have flowed better if it was a little more stretched out. I also am not to sure about the purple drips dripping in every direction. Dont forgett that these are just my opionions. Keep it up and post more please.

A lot of people around these parts love to jump on the "start simple" deal and say you have no letter structure right off the bat, but that's cause they're not looking too deep into that first piece. Some letters there are weak, sure, but that "M" is pure sickness. There's no way you can distort that letter so well (with the exception perhaps of the right vertical bar) without having a good understanding of the letter itself, so you obviously have some knowledge. More practice on simples won't hurt though.

 

Now, the second piece is way weaker. contradicting angles, incorrect proportions, distracting doodads. Keep it flowy like that first one.
