STEP1: Color the rest of the image… for this project, I went with a black and white so we could focus on the graffiti colors.
Copic colors used: T1, T2, T3, T4, T6, T8
STEP2: We’re going to start coloring the letters blending two colors together. In this case it’s red to yellow. At first I’m working at both top and bottom of the letter just so I can “see” what I’m working with… as I progress I’ll color from the red down to the yellow.
Colors: YR31 and R18
STEP3: I’m still figuring out the colors so I added a darker red and then pulled down the orange color as well.
Colors: R29 and YR07
STEP4: Work those colors and blend from the darkest red down to the lightest yellow (which has turned into orange! LOL).
Color added: YR12
STEP5: Do the same blending technique with the splash element behind the letters.
Colors: B14, BG53, BG32, BG11
STEP6: Then repeat, coloring the outline portion around the letters.
Colors: YG17, YG13 and YG21
STEP7: Add shadows on the letters and splash elements. Don’t blend these in as you want them with a harsh edge.
Colors: E17 on the letters and BG93 on the splash.
STEP8: Now start making it messy! I’ve added paint drips and splatters to the lower part of the graffiti.
Colors: R08, YR18, R29 and T9 for the reds; BG49, B06 and BG99 for the blues.
STEP9: You can skip the paint runs and splatters if you want, but this step is important and brings it to life (sort of speak). Grab your white gel pen or paint and add highlights and even large circles over the wall.
STEP10: Place your colored image on a project and show if off! Make mistakes and learn from them. Even I have a few on this one. LOL
On this project I’ve used the following images.
