how can you hate making simple letters? some the best graffiti is straight letter work. and ALL of the good graffiti started with an understanding of letter structure.

 

thats a shit attitude that won't get you anywhere.

 

kirg: don't draw another arrow for atleast 12 months. throwing extra shit in doesn't distract from bad letters.

How should I fix up my letters? What's wrong with them?

But doesn't that defeat the purpose of expression? And I don't really understand how that would help me.

If you don't understand how that would help you then you need to read the rest of this page and the page before. If you keep going the direction you're going, you're gonna be making garbage looking "Wildstyles" forever that have no flow, structure, balance, etc etc etc. Start simple, work your way into it.

Okay I'll take your advice, but is there any more specific advice you can give me? Like what exactly is wrong with the letters?

Your letters don't have flow, a good structure, and you don't understand when to and when not to use extensions. Everyone does it in the beginning, everything thinks simple straights sound gay. But after a while you'll learn to appreciate them and how to make them look good.

everything is wrong with your letters.

i'm not just being mean, i'm just bored and close to drunk so i'm participating in this thread.

 

the reason everyone says 'learn how to do straight letters' is because you can't deconstruct something until you understand how its supposed to be put together in the first place.

 

without a solid understanding of an engine I couldn't take it apart and put it back together in a working order--let alone make it more powerful or efficient or whatever? the same thought goes for letters. if you don't understand the significance of weight, balance, form, etc on every single letter you won't be able to make anything interesting.

 

you might learn to paint really well and have some really neat colors and effects, but your letters will still be shit.

 

make every letter you do 'sans serif', no extra shit ever. don't even worry about using more than 3 or 4 colors per page. once you understand a letter, which is something that is learned through practice and cannot be taught, you can move on to adding stupid fucking arrows all over the place.

@kyudo & other toys, master the letters on your keyboard. If you do that then you automatically become legend status. More legend then Cope2

haha wasn't tryin to destroy his confidence, just pointing out that simples are cool to do and if you do them and learn that structure you will progress and can then put your flair into them.

 

If he doesn't believe me he can see back in 08 when I joined and in this thread I was doing simples n shit then
