Today we will feature a tutorial on how to draw graffiti alphabet. It's not easy to start it, especially in making sketches on a paper that usually use a pencil. Indeed, now many online applications that make it easier for someone to make graffiti, including one who was not an expert.
Graffiti is a style of drawing art and letters that garners most of its popularity in the inner cities, but where once graffiti was found spray painted on buildings by vandals, the art form now enjoys a margin of respect in the art world and is considered a genre of its own. Graffiti's new place in the art world has given rise to street art as a legitimate artistic genre as well. (by http://guardian-graffiti-alphabet.blogspot.com)
Things You'll Need:
* Pencil (2H, 9B)
* Color pencils
* Reference guide
* Sketch paper
1. Determine the style of graffiti alphabet you want to create. Some graffiti alphabet styles include bubble, wavy and jagged. Each of these styles have specific characteristics. To make a consistent graffiti alphabet, it's important to choose one style and stay with it. Mixing styles will make your alphabet chaotic. Bubble, wavy and jagged are the oldest, most widely recognized styles. Bubble is a good beginning choice because the letters are round and fat.
2. Start with a hard tipped pencil, such as 3H or 2H. This will allow you to draw the outline of your letters lighter. Use a full sketch sheet for each letter. Start with A and work your way through the alphabet. For bubble letters, place your pencil on the paper wherever you feel comfortable and draw the letters in as few movements as possible, lifting your pencil away from the paper only when absolutely necessary to avoid crossing your parts of your letters over one another. The key is to overdraw your letters, almost in caricature style, so they look well-rounded and fat. For the bubble style, avoid using in hard, straight lines. Keep a reference chart handy until you have fully mastered the style (see Resources).
3. Draw each letter's first phase and set it aside until you have drawn each letter. Go back to your first letter with a softer pencil. A 9B is extremely soft and will give you darker output. The object is to add shading and depth to your graffiti letters by coloring the edges of each letter to fatten them up with color. Graffiti letters need a bit of a 3D effect to make them work. After you've added this dimension, go over the lighter lines with your 9B to bring them out, then add a few lines on the face of each letter to give it surface texture.
4. Use color pencils to bring your letters to life. Pastels and hot neon colors work best with graffiti. Don't be afraid to mix the colors on each letter, letting the colors overlap and blend to create odd color effects. Part of the fun of graffiti is the bright colors, so get creative with the blending.
