Why is it that 90% of anyone who starts trying their hand at graffiti has to center it around some lame ass drug element ("ooooo, marijuanna!")

 

Please, the whole glorification of weed is for people stuck in the early nineties duder.

 

If this is only your 15th drawing, you are obviously trying to bite off more than you can chew.

 

You decided to say "fuck mastering the basics, imma go for crazy wild style at the get go!"

 

And you know what, this is why you fail.

 

Crappy handstyles, trying to attempt way too much for your skill level, filling up the page to make it look busy.....i could go on and one.

 

I swear, people have no concept of the word "practice anymore"

Once again, someone who decided to blow right past mastering simple letter forms and decided to tell the word "practice" to fuck right off.

 

Your lines lack confidence, your handstyles are obviously done extra small to hide the fact they aren't good either.

 

 

Please people, stop trying to cook a five course meal when you're still burning the fuck out of your bowl of cereal.

diggin the bottom one a lot. Follow up on that style some more.

 

and remember....use bubbles, stars, arrows, etc....SPARINGLY. When you flood your pic with bubbles, it's basically saying "I suck so i used graffiti effects to try and hide that."

 

No, it just draws more attention to the fact you are awful.

 

But yeah, def. feeling the blue "star"

people talk mad shit and nitpick the fuck outta you on Paper Chase,

but even the sloppiest pieces ever get props in other threads just cuz they are painted.

dont get me wrong, all the advice i have received is very helpful and i appreciate it...

... and im definitely working on my simples for a while before i try to fuck with any crazy shit.

im just saying its kind of ridiculous how everything gets nitpicked when its on paper.

does anyone get my point or am i just gonna get more shit-talk :spin: :tongue:

you're forgetting young one that paper is the genesis point for many amazing pieces painted on walls.

 

If we can see that something blows on paper, it will sure as shit blow even more when it is painted on a wall. If it's dope on paper, then usually it should do good on a wall even though i have seen people that can rock a black book but can't paint to save their life.

 

I dunno what pieces you're talking about (show me an an example of a "sloppy piece") but if i see something awful, i call the person on it.

 

Usually when yo get really good, you can paint something horrible and people will still commend it because the person has a reputation for being good and thus crappy work can slide. If you have style, it shows through anything....someone like revok could paint something crap but it would still look good because, well, it's revok duder

 

 

 

 

hope this made sense

 

 

keep practicing. It took me years to get good

Did you have to tell me that twice?

 

Duder, you left yourself open to that one....ya dig?

 

 

For the rest of you....I did the exact same things when i started....I saw all that crazy TKO/MSK/AWR etc etc etc and I thought "Damn, i wanna be on that level...NOW!" and attempted things that were way beyond my skill level. Don't try and be a king right off the bat.....I am betting most of you are 16-17 and still in high school.....don't worry, you've got years to practice and get good. Shit, i wish i could show you some stuff from 9-10 years ago compared to what i have now. I was in the same place. So don't get discouraed, keep practiging, master your basic letters and then get crazy

 

 

Hybrid.....I can tell you're trying to make a move to something fancier and it's not bad but I can tell it's still pretty shaky. The lines lack confidence but that's to be expected. Ditch that oval looking thing behid the letters. That's overcompensating through use of fancy effects which draws attention to one's inexperience. Also, don't bother with a copyright emblem...you don't need to worry about someone stealing your idea.

 

And don't bother putting your handstyle on there if you're not comfortable with it. Doing it all small makes it look A)crappy and B)Tells me you're not proud of it so you keep it small in the hope we're just going to look at your letters......which incidently draws my eyes to the damn thing in the first place.

I don't claim to be the best but lemme show you guys something....

Okay, I have used bubbles in this piece to the extent where they are on the fringes and therefore accent the damn thing. My character is proportional to the letters....i.e. it doesn't overshadow them. Lastly i don't go overboard with the outline. The tops and bottoms of the letters are more or less in line with one another. My handstyle was awful at the time so i didn't even bother putting one down.

 

Remember....less is more.
