How to Draw an A | Graffiti


My name is Paes164 and I’m a professional
artist. I’ve been painting since a teenager, and I’ve
been doing it for 20 years now. Find me at Paes164.com (p-a-e-s-164.com) My
Facebook is facebook.com/paes_art. So, i’m going to start off with the letter
A. We’re going to do, little bit of a bubble letter check it out. This is basically just used to get your name
up on the street. Something fun and fast. You basically just want to do something that
you don’t have to stop spraying. Its usually something you’re doing quicker. Also, a little 3D to kinda just bold up the
letter helps a lot. Just like that is a letter A. So, with a block
buster, really self explanatory, it’s a big blocky letter that once again, everyone is
going to be able to read from a block away. Kinda come through with the initial color
of your letter and just do your rough sketch of however you want to line it out, just something
really legible. Now again with a blockbuster, its not so much
about, you know, your details or your piece but more about just getting those letters
up and letting people read it. Now, with some black or any type of darker
color we’re gonna come and outline it. After outlining it we’re gonna come in and
trim it off with a little bit of 3D to make the letters pop out some more. So, kinda just following around like a shadowbox
around the letters. Off to one side. Ok, and that’s the blockbuster letter A. Again,
kinda just starting with your sketch, but its really just taking that initial letter
and twisting it out and giving it your own personality and style.And any color can, you
wanna sketch with is fine. Just about right there, we’re gonna start
with our sketch of the A. You can see, unlike the throw up and the blockbuster its just
a couple more twists but ultimately it’s still the letter A. Color choice is always up to
you. To make your letters stand out good, you should
always mix a combination of dark and light. Before you come back and add your outline,
now’s a good time to add any cheesy details to make your letters stand out. When coming and doing your outline, you’re
kinda coming in and cutting against the lines of the letter that you shaded just to kinda
clean it up and touching it up with the outline, followed by inner gel will make the letter
pop. So we’re going to move on to adding a little
bit of 3D, once again its all about making those letters pop, and making peoples jaw’s
drop. What?! Next step, back to the inner outline known
as the inner gel. Basically you want to go with the brightest
color of the grouping colors you’re going to use for this piece just to kinda give it
that edge and that pop, and that graffiti look. Lets make our wild style look that much cooler,
we’re going to add a outer outline known as the “outer gel”. There you have it, wild style A.

  2. Its looks "great" for you because you have no knowledge of graffiti… it takes years of practice to develop your style , can control and other sh**…
