the NEW sketch thread

I think what I appreciate above much else is the simple colour schemes. A lot of this reminds me of what was around when I first started painting in the early-mid 80s. There's a strong focus on structure and flow, which caries the piece and the colour schemes match but complement rather than overpower the letters. And there's no trendy-fad type shit in there, which I super-appreciate.

Wow, you started painting in the 80s, your a true legend. Please give me some pro writers advice because I am only 13 and started last year

@ElbowMack187- take this for what it's worth, or tell me to fuck off. Honestly, I'm only trying to be helpful. 

 

I like the blue LBOE piece but I don't read it as LBOE... it reads as EROE. The L and E both have the same shape and structure which led to my double-take on what is what. The B is shaped and flows just like an R, complete with the extender flowing right into the bit that connects to the arm coming off the O. I do like that part, but I think there's a way to hit that without changing the structure of the letter B. 

 

Also, the arm coming off the bottom of the E seems forced when compared to the arm coming off the bottom of the B and extending out past the L. I see what you've done with the subtle mirroring of the two arms and get why you pushed it, but maybe it comes off the extender arm from the O? That way both the arm coming off the B extending past the L and the arm coming off the O extending past the E would be extending from an equal distance... if that makes sense. I do like that even though you've mirrored the flow on the left and right, the style is not exactly the same. To me, that feels more considered than doing the same thing on both sides. 

 

Am I being an ass, or helpful?

Elbow, I dig your stuff, with the amount of work you put in I'm sure we'll see your styles evolve pretty quickly. I wish I had the motivation to pump out half as many sketches. Anymore it's like I get two letters in and bail on it.

Hate the dentist. The pain in the mouth I can manage. It’s the pain in the hip pocket that fucks me up.

Looks nice enough but it reads JROE to me.

Wanna exchange I know you don't get at it much but I seen your shit and it's deff worth the exchange... for me  at least . lol if not that's cool man . But also on that jroe lol  I'll take half of it as a complement . Only because one of my local hero's  writes jaero . But his shit toatly different then mine . And I'll take the other half as  ...i need to work on my extestions width so that it isn't confused for letter structer?
