Bode characters always add that finishing touch...


Well, the tried and true method is learning straight letters really well. Based on the first few pages you posted I’d say you’re obviously putting in the effort on that end, but I would encourage you

Messing around with my handstyle. Looking to improve mine so all criticism welcome


I'll preface this feedback with this - I prefer what I would call a classic handstyle over all others, but I definitely enjoy all styles.


Looking at what you've posted I would say that you should go with what you're most into, and it would seem that you're most into that one-line tag (best version is bottom right). And to be honest, it looks better than your classic-style tag (top left & bottom middle). When I saw it it immediately reminded me of the tag Atom does for WOW crew that he's in (see below, top - middle of pieces). It's not the same, just reminds me of it... it's unique. It's like he created an invisible upside down triangle and made the letters fit in the shape. 


I think learning a good, classic handstyle would be beneficial, but if you're not feeling it then you're never going to feel comfortable writing it, so go with what feels right. Do what comes naturally and over time that tag will evolve into something more crisp, more refined. I'll mess around with some options using that style and share later.

Spent some time messing around with your letters. Don’t know if any of this helps you but figured I’d share.

@Ray40- Believe me when I say those latest drawings are big improvement from even six months ago. Very cool. 


I'll be honest with you... I have no criticism on either of those. I would encourage you to keep going with those outlines and working on refining them. There's some different bar widths that could use some tightening up but overall these are looking good. I really like the second one on green paper. 


Nice hustle!

@billoboy2020- my only feedback is that you’re letters are getting too wet-noodle looking. You’re curving and bending them in ways that don’t flow naturally, and when you’re doing simple-style letters like those it’s important to keep them feeling clean, crisp. Honestly, your sketch is really close it just needed some refinements...
