|Building A Graffiti Letter "S" With Bars
|Click on image to enlarge and print this free art lesson handout
|There are many different techniques you can experiment with to draw graffiti letters. This lesson will explore creating
a graffiti letter "S" by starting out with a basic tag letter. Once you write out the letter in tag-style, you can add bars
to the letter to thicken it and develop a wildstyle letter from there. Tag-style letters are simply letters that are
written in a person's own, unique graffiti-style handwriting. (click on this link for more info on tag alphabets)

STEP 1. In this exercise, a graffiti letter begins with a simple tag letter, so draw an "S".
STEP 2. Draw it again, this time squaring it off into sharp lines.
STEP 3. Draw a bar around each line of the letter any width that you wish to thicken the
letter, overlapping the edges of the bars.
STEP 4. Draw around the outline, erasing all the inside guidelines.
STEP 5. Now smooth over all the pointy edges to make your letter soft and curvy. Your
new "S" should have the same flowing feeling as the "S" you started with, only now it's
a block letter.
STEP 6. You can add 3-D to finish your graffiti letter, following one of the many
methods we suggest here free 3-D drawing lessons or use your own ideas.
The complex graffiti letters that you see in big & colorful graffiti masterpieces all start out with a simple, basic letter.
Follow these simple steps using the tag letter "S" for practice and then design your own letter. Click on the image
