Learn about how to draw graffiti is a pleasure. In this lesson we will give an example to make graffiti names. This time it will use the name “Michael”. You can use your own name or the name of the special that you like. So this example is not mandatory. Before we draw graffiti then prepare your image as pencil supplies, markers, paper.
Write Your Name in Graffiti – Step 1
The first stage you need to sketch graffiti names that have previously been selected. Create a design point of interest. So do not be too rigid in its expression. I tried to add some symmetry to the design by adding an extension which hooks off the letter “M” and mirrors th way the letter “L” is shaped.

Using your sketch as a guide, draw 2D letters around your sketchy letters. Look for interesting ways to connect letters to each other. For instance notice how the “M” connects to the “H” and also how the “C” connect to the “H” as well. The “H” and “A” also connect to the “E”. This may take you several attempts. If you decide you are not happy with the way your design is going, set it aside and try another variation. Keep each attempt and borrow ideas from them. Graffiti artists often trace of copy parts of design sketched that fit well together.

To reinforce the design of a graffiti we could add another form in the initial design of our graffiti, you can add arrows and splits to your designs. For arrows you can add as needed, provide the right parts. You can see every letter that is to consider what it will be.

Give the edge with strong colors and clear. To give a 3D effect of different colors to make it look alive. To create shadow effects you can create a diagonal line of the same length in each corner of the letter. Then connect the design followed the existing letter.
Write Your Name in Graffiti – Step 5
In the earlier stages of the actual graffiti design is finished but you can add a background to make it look more beautiful. Backgrounds can take the shape of clouds, brick, blocks, bubbles or blobs. Deciding that I find on my background helps me to think of the design as a whole piece of art. One could finish the letters first. It is a matter of preference.

Give background color in your design, choose the right color with the color that you selected earlier.
Write Your Name in Graffiti – Step 7
Thicken the outside border of your letters and add horizontal shading lines to your edge. Lines drawing close together have the effect of darkening an area. Usually this is done more in areas that may be shadowed if the letters were actually dimensional. Additional lines near the centers of the edges mimic possible reflections that a shiny dimensional letter might pick up.
You can try to give the other colors on your graffiti design. You do not have to be afraid to try, because you also have to learn about the election and the right mix of colors. It requires instinct and knowledge. In the picture above we have tried with the color purple and green. You have an idea with another color. Please have a try!!!
