    change your name. if you dont know how to paint then you havent been writing very long so you dont have much into your name so you should change it because there is already a very dope REVOK and even an evoke.

    ^ LOL
    the ones way you get perfectly clean lines are from alot of practice
    if you want find some baords and makes some clouds or jagged filles and try ot outline them as good as you can and jsut try more and more and you will eventually get better

    :rolleyes: silly bastard ain't you?

    I get clean lines with stencils and tape... my can hand sucks ass. practice is the best advice. Go find some piece of shit piece anything on the side of the road someone's throwin out and practice before you go out and make a dumbass of yourself.

    shortcuts are gay.

    hold the can the same distance away and always at the same angle, and move the can at the same speed.

    and if you wanna cut lines, you just make that fat line on top of the other color, and then paint over half of that and it'll make that line twice as thin. . .if that makes any sense

    Try to push your lines so you don't get spray off. Stay steady and even and don't jerk the can.

    the only thing you can do is practice really, i like using german thins (grey) i get pretty clean lines with those, and who ever said you couldn't get clean lines with stock caps?!? you just need to learn to move the can fast enough. You only really need razor sharp lines for peices (my thought) cause if u get a spot on the highway or something i only care if they can see/read my shit, it looks clean from a distance anyway with a 2 cents
