How to Draw an I in Graffiti

Learn how to draw the letter I in graffiti from graffiti artist Paes 164 in this Howcast video.


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 ( My Facebook is How to Draw Graffiti Letters of the Alphabet I: Probably about one of the most simple letters to do. So, maybe for you beginners it's a good starting point. So get to this point, rock over and then maybe do a little...fairly good 'I'. Same thing with everything else, we are gonna come through, 3-D it all the way around and walk away like nothing ever happened. K..getting into a blockbuster 'I', very simple letter so maybe with this, come down with our letter 'I' and make it kinda cool with a star on top. Fill and done and traditionally with blockbusters its more of a just quick way to get your name up on the street when you have a little more time than most and to do a something little more colorful. Being solid in its fill is not as crucial as just getting a clean outline and clean inner and outer outlines. Add our 3-D, finish it up, put an inner outline. That's the gist of a blockbuster letter 'I'. You can see with the inner gel, left it open just to make the I appear like the star is underlapping it. Now to just come through afterwards, even add a little a little undercut to really crispen up that line. Last will be a wild style 'I'. 'I' is definitely going to be one those letters that you are not gonna have a lot of playing room with, so we're gonna twist it around. Now that I have got my sketch rocking, just fill it in, maybe switch up the color a little bit. Leaning the can down at an angle and that is how I put my fade in. I want to stretch it down lower by naturally pulling away from the wall as I work my way lower down the letter. I'm dealing with such a basic letter, I think I'm gonna add a little more fill. Well hey,hey,hey working our way through. What shall we do about the top of that 'I'? Maybe, we'll do an eye. So, basic round circle. Start off with the center of the pupil, first layer, add a little color and highlights. Wanna get a little dot or two of paint on it. So flip the can over and empty out the stem. So you can come back and just do a little bit. To get those fine type airbrush lines, you might see a little electricity or what not, you got yourself a couple of sprays worth of really fine line detail. So if you have to lot to do, you will be doing a lot of flip over, flip back and empty straw and paint. To our 3-D, now with our inner outline and an outer outline. There you go, wild style 'I', with some degree, take it any direction you want.
