Learn to Graffiti
If you want to learn how to graffiti, you came to the right place. Below are easy steps that will help you understand the process as well as have a general idea about the topic. But before starting with the steps, you need to know the basic concepts about graffiti. Graffiti (singular: graffito; the plural is used as a mass noun) is the name for images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property. Graffiti is any type of public markings that may appear in the forms of simple written words to elaborate wall paintings..

  1. There are many different styles of graffiti that you need to familiarize yourself with. Wherever you go, you may find some graffiti on the wall. If not, in this case you need to go and visit a city--graffiti is predominately urban. Again, if you can't or it's far from you, find them online. There are a lot of websites showcase graffiti; take a look of styles from across the globe. Some pieces are high-quality, but the more you see the better you'll know the characteristic styles
  2. Let's begin with writing down a name on paper. Write any word, but maybe your name is one of the best choice you will want to start with. Many serious graffiti artists start by developing a unique manner to write their signature. As a beginner, you can make it easier by printing the letters, all in capitals. Utilise a pencil and draw lightly for erasing it easily later. By leaving plenty of space between letters; it will help you to expand them to fill in the space later. Write them big enough to work with, but not so big that it will take forever to complete the graffiti
  3. Choose a style you desire to use for the name. Bubble letters are especially popular in graffiti, but you can find other styles, too. You can take rounded edges or sharp, equally sized letters or some big and small letters and so on. It's not hard to emulate a style, and it's a good way to have picture of a graffiti piece in that style to refer to. Once you understand the basics you can develop your own style naturally
  4. Outline the letters you have written to approximate the style you're going for. Now you need to use pencil again and write very lightly. For sure you'll make many little mistakes, but you don't have to worry about, you can still use the erasers. It will take time and patience to get the letters just right. Hint: Make the original words you wrote your guide, not your prison. Don't be fear to alter the letters beyond all recognition
  5. Vary line thickness. You have the choice to make all the lines the same thickness, but you can close together shading and a 3-D effect if the lines get thicker and narrower at different places (for example, the top and one side of an "o" might be very thick, while the bottom and other side is narrowed). Utilise your pencil to vary the thickness; you will need to darken this out with marker or ink later, so it doesn't need to be pitch black. By doing this step now, you can get a good example of what thicknesses looks good before you make the lines permanent
  6. Add details as desired. Once you get letters the way you want them, you can proceed and add additional details--with light pencil--if you choose to. Probably a lightning bolt for the dot of an "i" would be good, or eyes peering out of the holes in your "b". You have the choice to put a bubble around the whole name, like in comic books. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination
  7. Copy your drawing. Have the pencils put away, so, everything is permanent now. that explain us if you make any disastrous mistake(s)--you won't be able to do much about it. By having your drawing copied you will have a backup at least ready if something happpend. Utilise a copier and adjust the darkness setting so that the light pencil lines show in the copy. You may need also to trace the drawing onto another piece of paper, but this will be difficult because of the lightness of your drawing. To trace what you have, wait until after the next step or trace a photocopy
  8. Blacken your pencil lines. If you want to darken the lines drawn with your pencil you will need to use pen or marker. These lines are more or less permanent, so be extremely careful. Don't be discouraged with small mistakes; you can usually fix it so nobody else will know. Say if your pen line was too thick or you were jogged and went outside of the line, just fill it in so it's 3D
  9. Add color to fill in your drawing. You can use different colored pencils, marker or crayon will work too, Again, it's a good idea to look at examples before doing this, but you can do anything you want. A very simple graffiti can have only one color. You can also easily do each letter in a different color or make the added details a different color than the letters. While you might be tempted to go crazy with color, sometimes simplicity is best. Graffiti artists traditionally had to work secretly for fear of getting caught--many still do--and so they could carry only one or two different colors of spray paint at a time--a lot of very good graffiti is just one color
  10. Keep practicing. Practice is the most important step. If your graffiti turned out perfectly, congratulations. Proceed to different words and effects. If not, keep trying. Master the simple moves first and then work your way up--you'll soon develop your own style. Carry your own "black book" and don't ever copy people's art.
