I just wanted some critiques on this throw i did today
I just got into graff not too long ago so unleash the "toy"s


no need to make new threads, just post your work here. also you don't really need to bump something you posted like an hour ago, this forum isn't so quick that your post will get lost. welcome to the APforums, go introduce yourself in the new peeps thread -g

Not bad at all. I actually like your S and C. The I could be more interesting, and the K is a little skinny relative to the other letters, but it's not a bad effort.

Small town, other than all the rail cars and what not b/c of the chemical plants, only way for me to learn is through books and forums. Been tryin for a week or two, but my buddy liked what I was doodling for practice at his house, so this is it. He's from SF so that's basically the them for my picture. 1st blackbookish thing I've done, only been drawing a few weeks. New to art, new to this, I always just loved watching trains as a kid, and just started drawing so flame on. Oh yeah I realize Alive is most def taken, I just wrote it b/c the first pic i ever drew a few weeks ago was Johnny 5, from short circuit. pc

roller, its all runny because it rained after i did it before it was dry, i'll go and fix that sometime. also i have yet to fill in the 3d, i had to stop for rain.
Image
second thing i've ever done with spray paint, it looks a bit better now, i touched up a couple of the bad looking areas, like the white outline on the 1st e, the too large black part on the 1st L, and some general touch up for drips/poor fill.
Image

Image
sh*t outline on this because i used a 10 year old rusto can with a ny fat that leaked like crazy and got stuck down sometimes, but hey, no excuses, its not good and its my own fault.
Image
eyes dripped weird, but f*ck it. they were supposed to be just dots that dripped straight down a lot.
Image
tips/critiques on any of these would be helpful.

Not trying to be mean, but the characters have no redeeming qualities. The second LEVEL is probably your best, but it needs a LOT of work. I'm not much of a letter-form guy, so I can't help much there, but suffice it to say that your Es should be more consistent and your V should be retooled altogether.

thanks for the critique, no offense taken. what do you mean by them having no redeeming qualities? those e's were actually meant to be the same but i f*cked the one up, and i do agree that the v needs work.

By "no redeeming qualities" I mean that you should just stop painting characters for a bit.
