    Alive..why you expect me to stick to simples and always do them ( although you should always do them .. but ) .. when ever i go for something different.. you always tell me to take off the things that make up that style..:huh: ..god..geez..we have to move on.. :rolleyes: .. i aint saying you dont know anything..but why should i listen to you .. im trying to move on .. from simples .. like i said on the last page .. people who are better than you said they like this style im working on ... so just let it be..let me actually try to move on .. :rolleyes: .. you carnt stick with simples for ever ..

    Aimo I agree with you...but I think your trying to force a movement...and its showing through in your pieces...Some of your connections dont make sence they're force to be a little more intricate. They just dont flow like your old pieces. But its your paper your pens. I support your quest.

    crits pleaseeeee. especially on the S. that shit fucks up the whole thing.

    anyway, aimo, mith, ras w/e. u prob know what im gonna say without me saying it. u should lose the color n caraks, n focus on the letters. but w/e. get that ugly fuckin speech bubble outa ur I. honestly. u do that speech bubble shit kinda thing all the time in ur letters. it looks terrible. and get that nasty black shapes outa ur fill, cuz ur doing em wrong, so they look terrible. and stop connecting your goddamn lettesr. make them look dope on their own. and dont do that "one" shit. cuz its ugly.


    sumoe, its dope, real real nice 3d shading.


    peace all. [/b][/quote]
    your letters get smaller and shorter as they go. i'm really feeling the "IN" but the rest just starts to slack. once you hit the "E" it just fell apart. it looses the roundness you had in the first two letters and the letters become crammed and loose all flow. my advice would be to start over keeping the same "I" and "N" but change the rest.

    What some people don't understand is that simples (block letters) don't make you develop a style...they are just used to understand structure...once you get structure down doing simples day after day after day won't do anything for you. But you can have a dope style of simples...for example Alive has been doing simples for a long time and he is slowly developing a style, adding little things here and there as he goes on and his work is always quality. The problem with what you are doing now ras, is that you are trying too hard to improve, I would just say mess around with letters and connections etc. but don't force them on your pieces, because the connections make your shit look worse than it should.

    Big El- I love your work, but I'm dissapointed to see you lean on the gangsta lifestyle. That shit is played. Why glorify a way of life that gives a fuck about you or anyone you care about? I guess we all live in different realities. My reality is I have a baby girl only 3 months old who I love more than anything in this world, and I got set reppers right behind my house brawlin and screamin around all day and night and it worries me. I worry about my baby catching a stray bullet, cuzz it happened a few blocks down to some 4 and 6 year old girls.. I worry about her growing up and dealing with the bullshit that gangters leave the rest of society to deal with,..the drugs, the violence, the neglected kids who either aren't taken care of cuzz you're all (and I say "you're all" because you seem to rep the lifestyle) too pre occupied with selfish pointless shit, or locked up, and they become the unfortunate next generation of victimizers. I'm not tryin to be down on you personally, cuzz you seem like a cool cat and I rspect your style. It just seems like a sorry ass way to carry yourself, with so much potential. Why be another blank minded, gat toting, chain wearing, gold front flossing, money hungry zombie, when you could do something more? Society will be so much better off when people drop the hardcore "I don't give a fuck" ego and reconnect with their family and community.


    Sorry for the chat. I just take it bad when people with so much talent rep themselves so poorly. :( [/b][/quote]
    i respect what you're saying and understand where you're coming from; however...just because i quoted a dre song in my sketch doesnt make me a gun toting gang brawling mexican trying to kill your baby girl. i deal with that lifestyle every day, thats part of who i am, for better or worse. i dont think i talk with an ego, i dont tell people shit to put them down, and i think its a little shortsighted to stereotype me based on small pieces of information. i help my community, i help my brothers, and i help my mom...putting a grill in my mouth would be the last thing id ever do, i work my ass off for everything i have. if i carry myself in a way that you consider to be sorry than i cant help that, but just know that you dont have the whole picture, and without that u shouldnt be passing judgement. you'd be suprised if you met me, im probably not what u think.
    peace.

    omfg i love this
    im not one to judge pieces but if that doesnt have idk really know what does
    soooo nice, and thanks for the shouts
    kspy that looks soooooo nice youve improved alot the ks just seem to be leaning too far to the left
    asna the n is too big i like your a's though but the disproportion really throws the whole piece off on the bottom part the e is too big and the way you did your s looks awkward stick with the s in the top one
    ask the s is way too small/skinny the k is wide, and take the bump off the left side of the a itll flow better with the k on the one with the tall tops of the letter not the blocky one
    the blocky one looks good
    noen the e's middle bar is too long
    zera the a is wide [/b][/quote]
    this flows so much better than before aim, the connections look smoother.
