    Okay im going to show you how to start off on your graffiti journey

    so heres my first tutorial:

    1: look at your keyboard.
    image0108 - the graffiti thread


    2: copy out a letter, exactly like it is on your keyboard, in pencil a few times
    image0109 - the graffiti thread


    3: Outlining, go round your pencil outline with a black pen or any dark colour
    image0110 - the graffiti thread


    4: 3D, just under your letter make it look 3D by doing as the picture shows..
    image0111 - the graffiti thread


    5. Colour, pick your colour, pretty simple really
    image0112 - the graffiti thread


    6. Design, using your colour you can easily make your lettering stand out... if you can't think of your own design just use mine
    image0113 - the graffiti thread


    7. Pick out a few letters, for you word (obviously) and use all the things i just showed you to make....
    image0115 - the graffiti thread


    AND THERE WE HAVE IT, graffiti made easy...However, you may want to space your letters closer together to make it look better, in the next tutorial im going to show you add-ons to make your graffiti look more professional

    sorry for poor image quality.

    Okay so you've done the basic stuff, you've practiced your lettering to max potential, you've studied all the full aspects of your keyboard...now its time to go technical


    so changing your lettering is the second step to mastering graffiti...

    Try "warping" or inverting to change your letter around, maybe to one point.

    Now you see i should have done more letters but i cant be arsed now so like it or lump it.

    Add-ons.
    Now my add-on in this next picture is kinda silly, but its just random and it looks good
    image0117 - the graffiti thread

    most people like to use arrows as add-ons for their lettering like so...

    Now finishing off my letter with a bold outline & design looks like this:

    Now il draw out a few add-ons for people to try and use in their work later...

    anyway now you have your letters & add-ons done you have your word and stuff, you wanna make your graffiti stand out...

    so heres how to perfect your 3D...

    1. Draw a dot in pencil on the page anywhere you want your 3d to go..
    image0120 - the graffiti thread

    i did it in black pen so you could see it.

    2. with a ruler, make a line from every end point of the letter facing your dot
    image0121 - the graffiti thread


    3. After doing all that it should look like this
    image0122 - the graffiti thread


    4. next, use lines to how thick you want your 3d to be like so
    image0123 - the graffiti thread


    5. normally you would rub out the lines up to your 3d however, i don't have an eraser, so i just coloured it in black

    now heres one i did agers ago, may not be the best but still...

    This might be somewhat unrelated, but could you make one saying "Sharenator"? We think that'd be cool!

    It's not really the design or color or 3D that i struggle with, it's making the sweet letter designs and arrows and putting those all-together into one.
