Creative , i like it but i wouldnt use pen for future peices and drop the focus tag under the F.
Feb 13, 2007 @ 20:03
Lol I just got into the "game" so I don't know what to use, so ball point ink is all I got. What do you reccomend I should get...And yeah im trying to redo and make better lines and stuff, just a try.

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.

one i did in my free time

i know im not that good but..loch or Jesse or any1 else please give advice and tips

Also where can u get a blackbook?..i feel mad newbie
Feb 15, 2007 @ 14:20
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

some advice.........
Feb 15, 2007 @ 14:52
^ IMO, that tag would look twice as good if the letters were more linked together, more overlapping each other
Feb 15, 2007 @ 17:28
also try to make your letters simpler master straight letters then evolve or else its liek trying to dunk before you can lay up

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.
