graffiti-like word art in 10 steps

Graffiti-like Word art in 10 steps

Step 1.

Ok let's begin. This tutorial is for making Graffiti-like word Art on a paper (and I repeat on a Paper! not on the walls!). Here is the latin alphabet in an easy letter style. you can copy these to write any word. But to continue I will make the word "Graffiti".

Step 2.

So I draw the word like this. I believe it is easy to make the letters any style or way you want. Different letter styles are included in other tutorials. The first step is only to draw the letters with a pencil, better be HB or in the H scale. Make the First letter Bigger or taller or any way different from the others so that it stands out. You can also do that in the last letter as I did or/and the exclamation mark.

Step 3.

Now what must be done is to cover the pencil line with the colour line. For the colors I use Posca markers cause they can cover the already existing colour, but this can be done with other tools too, such us paint brush. And thus we have our structure! so far so good.

Step 4.

Now fill the letters with the colour. You should not cover the pencil with black unless you plan to make the fill black too.

Step 5.

Now is the time to draw the main line. Usually it is black, as I did it there, but in art there are no limits or rules. You can make it any color you want.

Step 6.

Now let's do some magic. A nice trick to make a word look beautiful is to draw an outline. The outline is a line that usually "lies" on the main line, or sometimes has a tiny distance. Draw the outline with a different colour from the main line. As there is an outline it is also an inline, which is the same, only in the in side of the main line. I suggest to put only one of them.

Step 7.

In this step I draw white lines to give a feeling that the words are shining. Be careful where you put the lines in every letter! A nice way to know where to place them is to imagine there is a light source in the right side for example. Think of which are the places that the light hits the letters and make the lines there. This trick can be used in other drawings too.

Step 8.

Now I draw a background pattern. A background is optional and is the most difficult part in my opinion. Here I draw a simple star-like one. It can be flames, Bubbles or anything else. So here you must draw the line with the colour you will fill it.

Step 9.

Now fill the Background.

Step 10.

And for the last step, you can draw a line on the background if you want. And that is it! There you have it ;) a word art! that is only a simple way to do it. You can also add your styles and ideas and make it your own. hope my tutorial helped :)
