Hi, I’m Stephan, I’m here at State of Confusion Skate Park, and I’m gonna show you how to do aerosol art. Now that I’ve shown you how, how to do some lines, I’m going to show you how to actually put the sketch from the paper onto the large wall. Before we get started on sketching on the wall, we have to paint roll the wall first. I’ve chosen a yellowish color, because I’m gonna be doing a blue fill on my sketch, which is complimentary. Once you’ve done rolling the wall, you wanna save little bit of extra paint just in case you make some mistakes during the sketching or the filling or any part of the graffiti for that matter. Once you’re done painting the wall, you could begin sketching on the wall. Sketching is, I usually take a lighter color paint, this I’m gonna use a khaki color which is similar to the color of the background I used. I used a lighter color paint, just in case I mess up, it’s not necessarily so important that I cover it with a wall paint again. I could possibly just cover it with outside designs or anything else. So, you wanna have your sketch handy, and your light can of spray paint handy. And, what I usually do I just take off the cap that comes with the paint and I put on a skinny cap to do my outline with and just begin sketching basically. You might occasionally wanna step back from time to time to see your space and you wanna think out your letters, I’m writing how to. Doesn’t matter how clean you are with your sketch, it just matter that you get the main idea of your sketch up there so you can begin your fill. Now that I have the main letters up, I wanna put on the 3D. Now when I put on 3D, I like to imagine there’s a vanishing point, which is where your lines connect to. I usually turn that it on the center, and I’ll bring all the lines in the piece this imaginary center mark. Once your done putting your sketch up, and you get your outline and 3D up, you just wanna make sure, you wanna take a step back, you wanna make sure that everything looks right. I’m basically looking to make sure the piece looks symmetrical and make sure everything looks in place and the letter forms don’t look too outrageous and too sketchy. Now that I’m done with sketch, we’re ready for the fill.
