meh....it really depends on you and how symmetrical you want it to look really....i always liked having kick offs at the ends that could go in diff directions so you could really stretch your letters out....

but really just find a word that fits you because its most likely going to stick with you for a really long time....and regardless what you choose you can make it work if you practice.

Thanks but I already did that.I loved the name Drak but it was taken by a king going by the name of Drax.I thought because there was a one letter difference it was okay but apparently it wasn't according to this local writer who's had years of experience in terms of London graff.He said that you should change it because Drax is a legend and also a nutter,so I figured I had to change.I would still have Drak today if it wasn't for that.I'm just finding it real hard to think of a name as theyre always taken and with alot of the names I think of I end up not liking after about a week.

Any name suggestions are appreciated.

Umm. Do you write MAKE? I know a guy who writes MAKE and a few others who do as well. Either way that ADVANTAGE is a better name.


yea I do write Make. I didn't think it to be a common name, but I think I'm going to keep it even if there is other people who write it... I just wrote Advantage because it's my name on HB haha. It would be too long of a tag anyway. And I like the letters in MAKE

I agree with your statement kick.. seems like most people want to learn how to write,cause "its cool" not realising most people into graff already knew the basics when they started.

Nice stash Drak I wish I had more stuff so my sketches wouldnt look as crappy. but ive never bought any thing to use for graff and I plan on keeping it that way..

honestly the only reason to do anything is because you think its cool...its a hobby....if i thought graffiti was lame as fuck i sure wouldnt have ever started painting at all....

if your sketches look crappy it just means work harder....i like sketches just straight black ink on white paper....anything else is sort of a waste....because lets face it you arent typically going to use the sketch with anything you paint.

the biggest thing i can say with lettering is make sure your bars follow through

like the main backbone of that E doesn't follow straight down it kinda inverts funky....start looking at some general fonts and just emphasize the letters and make them pop...

wow the 3-d on the 2nd one is f____d up. the first one is more like it.
its ok for 1year I guess. the more you practice non-stop the better you are likely to get. time off of graffiti usually is not a good thing..
