TRYING the GRAFFITI style for the FIRST TIME!? | Krink Markers + Posca Pens on Wood Panel


So instead of drawing on a piece of
paper today I thought it’d be fun to draw on a piece of wood. and to do that
I’m going to be using these markers these are used by a lot of tag artists
so I thought it’d be fun to try and draw in a graffiti style I’m not sure if you
can mix them with like POSCA pens but I have these nearby so yeah let’s see what happens ♪ I think the first step [skootches art supplies] is to decide what I want I know graffiti artists are kind of
about being spontaneous for the most part but I’m a little too nervous so I
just want to something out first I was actually looking into different
styles of graffiti – there’s one graffiti style called the hollow style which is big
round hollow letters where you just outline them and it reminded me of
bubbles which remind me of Blub fish so I thought it’d be fun to Center like
some graffiti around a blubfish..? and I have to fit it inside the square canvas
that I have let me just start by uhh I don’t know some of this – I’ve been
looking a lot into graffiti, different styles like you know the difference between
a tag and a hollow, but obviously I’m very new to this whole thing so I’m gonna
end up putting my own spin, coming at it from a bit more of an illustrative point
of view now right off the bat just writing the letters I see like I can
take this as a circle and maybe turn that in to an actual blubfish I don’t
know if I should take every circle or if that might be a little overboard yeah
cuz there’s two B’s and I feel like that ends up making it too even on each
side which isn’t very appealing to me just start throwing in some colors oh
you know what I did wrong I think this style usually all the
letters are more connected there aren’t these kind of spaces in between it just
from what I’ve seen so far so like this is what an H would look like more like
that Oh something I just noticed is I kind of have a mix of uppercase and
lowercase letters which might be a no-no just kind of experimenting throwing some
colors here and there I’m just using the Posca pens right now because I am
drawing so small – Blub fishes makes me smile maybe add some bubbles
no I do want mine to be kind of legible so I’ll probably have to be a
little easy on the random bubbles now just looking at this from a distance one
thing I definitely got right that I wanted was legible words but I also want
our little Blub fish here to be pretty pronounced and right now he isn’t
showing through so I can either try using a different color or when I draw
it again draw a bigger Blub fish obviously – its not quite standing out as much as
I need it to see my favorite thing is to definitely draw in a sketchbook because
if it turns out bad all you have to do is turn the page and I feel like there’s
just so much less pressure to make it look good and so I can throw a color on
here and not be worried that’s definitely my favorite way of expressing
myself sometimes I’m not happy with ‘finished pieces’ so sketchbook is always
where I come back to I definitely want to try another one where the blubfish is
more obvious so if I make this lower half of the B really big try to think
of bubbles when I’m writing the letters would be like this maybe with this
little fin sticking out maybe make this second B lowercase Round out the letters a
little more maybe use a bubble to create that L shape but does this look like a
letter B is the other question??? bubbles fill in some of these spaces – I think I did a
better job making them look rounder, do I like this better?
I definitely like a little Blub Fish being a lot bigger okay I’m actually
pretty happy with this one I think we improved from there but I want to try
another color scheme these are the colors I have a little in Krink – I’m
kind of hoping when these dry I’ll be able a layer the POSCA on top – these are
alcohol-based I believe [Reading off of Marker:]
“opaque permanent alcohol-based paint” and then I could be
wrong. they don’t stay on them anywhere but I believe POSCA is acrylic I definitely want to use I really like the look of this dark blue as an outline so
I’m gonna do that again something like this I think it needs a
bubble right here to kind of be like a period -oh wait!!
thought I had an exclamation point there can we squeeze it in? OF COURSE it’s not too
late these are opaque drawing on top of the KRINK– oh that does work pretty well
so as long as the wood texture is fine with POSCA pens it should be fine – I’m gonna use
just light blue and color just the lower half of the letters I think this has
much more water appearance than that one did that one was a little dark oh yeah I
definitely like that better doesn’t that feel more like refreshing? compared to
this one? does this add to it or just distract from it though that’s always a
good question to ask when you’re adding random bits and bobs something like that
now I have to wait for it to dry before I can do mr. blub fish there but I’m
just gonna practice one last thing if I can find my pencil draw a blub fish the
way I usually draw him and see if I can figure out what I don’t quite like about
that – see you usually can see his tail in some form try another angle definitely prefer the eyes looking in on
each other this guy’s cute leaving [the blub fish] white is not
terrible because if I do leave him white I’m actually gonna have to color in
white because the surface we are gonna be drawing on he’s not white I don’t know I
think I’m gonna try and get him yellow again – maybe blending it out?
well Yellow is not gonna be that standout-y I don’t think, on the wood could also
make him just red blend these together see what happens he looks like
I smudged ketchup and mustard on him the Reds not bad
especially if I go in and kind of outline some things try incorporating that color throughout I don’t know don’t love the red I think I
like everything else so I’m gonna go ahead and move to the wood and then
we’ll rethink the color of the blubfish when we get there I’m gonna move the
sketch out of the way, move our panel into position here a true graffiti
artist would probably draw straight with the paint marker immediately (but that’s not me) I’m gonna start with a white POSCA because a lot of the background needs to
be filled in white for the letters and obviously you can paint over top of it
anyway so I think that’ll be the opportune way here so we know we want it
all to fit inside this cube I know the B it’s kind of here with the big –oh see
that’s taking up too much space need to move it over a little then ‘Fish’
goes down here explanation point! I would like it just a smidge lower oh but we’re
gonna have all that detail at the bottom with the shading so that’s probably fine we can even add some more bubbles if we need I kinda want to add some bubbles
that overlap the letters to maybe one here and Mr. Blub Fish can go right here now we
want that like one-point perspective coming off everything I’m going to use
this white Krink marker I’ve not used before I’m gonna go ahead and fill in
all of the letters I just noticed this L got squashed somehow I just want to make sure I
like—this isn’t working as well as I was hoping [shaking marker off camera] okay this blue ones working a lot better
maybe I’m just not using this right go in and add another coat maybe get a little
better coverage and I’ll see you when that’s done! [time jump] all right did a couple more
coats of the white Krink now I’m gonna go over everything with this blue one
just kind of outline all of the shapes be very soft and round with it obviously
never too late to fix mistakes with these Pens not quite as easy to work
with as the POSCA pens for sure they’re in a very different ballpark I’m kind of not
waiting for things to dry only because I feel like if you were actually doing
graffiti somewhere do you have time to wait for all your layers to dry that
seems counter-productive oh and something I saw someone do is you take
your marker like this you squish it in wait for something to drip like that (oh
I got it on my desk) [squeaky cleaning noises of the squeakiest variety] sure there’s a bit of a science and an art to where you
place these -alright a next step would be to add that light blue layer (that’s all over me) to add the light blue underneath bit I’m gonna start doing that and I might blend it with the white I don’t know if that’s something you’re
supposed to do with these markers I kind of want to try it just blend it so hopefully won’t be
quite as harsh it does dry fast to a certain extent but instead of dry really fast it
kind of dries tacky now before I can do much more I think I have to wait for it
to dry add some extra layers of things and then I definitely want to use that
dark blue POSCA to outline everything Oh what it actually didn’t do is add the paint
water splashes [art ASMR] Blue is definitely more opaque than the white was let me try that Squash/Drip
technique ♪oooh watch that drip go! ♪ I don’t know if you can see it I can see how you can go overboard
with this yeah I think I’m gonna let everything dry and then come back on top
of that and start adding it some more details let’s do that all right it’s
pretty dry I want to go do this blue POSCA, outline everything This [marker] goes on so
much smoother but it might also be because of the paint dried and it just
wasn’t sticking to the wood — I just want to outline the whole letter that
already starting to look a lot cleaner grab the white POSCA clean up some
of these edges add some reflections to some of these bubbles kind of ending up
going back and doing everything again with the POSCA [scratchy art sounds] [more scratchy art sounds] [scratchy art sounds] OoOO! I can smudge it with my finger! a word I kept hearing when I was
watching videos by different graffiti artists who actually know what they’re
doing is they kept saying “you want it to look spontaneous’ so I’m kind of letting
myself just do whatever I want at this point I know I started with like a
thumbnail and everything like I usually do but now that I’m here on the actual
board I’m kind of just trying to if I think of an idea I just sort of throw it
on there and see if it works because you can actually kind of fix a lot of things
later because these art supplies are so opaque start adding some depth and add that
shadow thinking of it as a one-point perspective so it’s gonna come in like
this add some more bubbles I want to use this turquoise (this emerald green
actually) and add a bit of a border on the right side try using some black I’m
actually going to redo that shadow I did in blue, make it pop more just because it was blending in too
much with like the border of the words that way I can actually use the black
POSCA and outline our little Blub fish which I think I want to go with the
yellow is this dry? oh yeah. okay. yeah I prefer drawing on this with the
POSCAs – just seem to go on easier I’m able to add little reflection of yellow
and some of the bubbles try that oh wait that all needs to be wait wait
wait this all needs to be white the eyeballs right?
he looks real freaky right now we can go in and add some lines around him
though it’s a little tricky cuz this tiny little point gets kind of caught in
the wood texture and then shoots black ink everywhere – once I outline this
thinly I’m kind of hoping I can go over with something thicker yeah cuz that’s
just gotta make it a mess now this is working better than the skinny POSCA thats for sure He is not quite as cross-eyed as I’d like maybe when that dries I can go over it with
the yellow again and touch it up – especially these edges maybe even add a blue shadow I
think I’m gonna go ahead and do something spontaneous and outline the entire
outside with this yellow here we go aaaand you can’t really see it might have
to do another layer its not quite as opaque as I think I need it to be so
maybe now that I’ve laid this down I can go over with the yellow POSCA after it’s
dry or just go over the whole thing with
blue again trying to erase it I should probably wait for it to dry so it’s not
green yeah that looks very barfy okay time to wait for it to dry again this is why I
don’t do spontaneous things I’m gonna go ahead and put my
signature in here somewhere boom baby
[i did something ‘write’…] outline the bubbles again, but it will swap there but it happens we’re trying
to decide if there’s anything else I still want to like attempt or if it’s
time to walk away I could add some shines to the eyeballs [squawks:]
awww that looks so much cuter! [realized her voices was atrocious:]
excuse me why was there green on this?!!? up some reason there’s for some reason there is yellow on the end of [this blue pen] boopity boo! here and there [smacks board with marker] I think I don’t know I’m too scared to
touch anything else I think we’ve reached a point of no return and I think
these Krink markers are starting to get to my head to my brain starting to leak
out my ears even with all my windows open and the
fan going (I hope you couldn’t hear that the whole time that have been annoying) here’s my first attempt at trying to make some kind of graffiti of some kind it didn’t quite turned out the way I pictured I much prefer this one right
here I think this is my favorite but this is kind of cute for a first attempt
I think my preferred marker of these two would be the POSCA pens they’re much
more opaque when you first put them down whereas the KRINK it seems like you need
to do multiple layers before it blocks out the wood pattern behind it – I still
have a couple more wood panels this came in a multipack so let me know what art supply
you think I should use on other wood-panel – there’s so many ideas anyway I do want to thank you guys for watching I hope you enjoyed watching me
experiment with a graffiti style obviously I’m not part of the culture or
the community that creates real graffiti so I hope you can appreciate my small
tiny attempt — thank you guys for watching I’ll see you guys all next week and hope
you have a delicious evening full of waffles! BYE! ♪ ♪
