Appreciate but its really not that good. That shit is amatuer compared to real artists out there but thanks none the less.

Focus you need to go with very very simple letters at first.

My dude Estoh put this together for another forum were on and it pretty much sums up what people gettin into the game need to learn .

You cant start crazy, it has to be shitty ass block letters at first. If you cant make block letters and letters and words for example you see on cereal boxes, than you cant advance onto piecing.

Look at the progression of this "S". Now dont go bite the S and take Estoh's steez, but its the perfect example of what your striving to accomplish.

go to Staples, or some business depot shit, and ask for blank papered notebooks, they'll have what you want

first rule of blackbooking - ALWAYS at least etch it lightly in pencil first. don't just take to the pens/sharpies, cause you're gonna waste half your book

here's some of my pics. new book, doesnt have much yet. all in pencil too, havn't had time to sharpie and fineline

^ IMO, that tag would look twice as good if the letters were more linked together, more overlapping each other

only advice: PRACTICE!!! don't get discouraged that your shit doesn't look like that guys shit. it's because it's not that guys shit. get comfortable with your own style and evolve it. it's ok to be influenced, but don't bite.
