Ok, A while back i wanted to get into handstyle writing. I stared out with one of those industrial black permenants writing under Z.O.E and a pending name until I came up with something better. I boosted a few Prismacolor markers today (a pretty damn good upgrade) and some paint markers, and made up the name Lo Ark. Anyway, I know that when starting handstyle you should take it slow and develop your own style, but I was just wondering for future use, what are so handstyle techniques? I mean today I was practicing and got a really nice flair, then I tried it again and couldnt, so I was just wondering some so I could practice. Thanx :ph34r:

Okay, can anyone tell me what "spanish" means as in "spanish montana"?

There are two different kinds of Montana (apparently). Spanish and German. Spanish is the stuff BS sells in the online store. I'm not sure which is better because I've only tried the German, and it's damn good.

you can go to michaels and buy things called zig poster markers
those work really well
sharpe sells a magnum marker

just make it up
my ex girlfriends dad who does graff
told me to just keep writing your style over and over
and you will learn it

Generally with handstyles (throw-up's aswell) as you keep doing them they change and advance. Sometimes it's deliberate, sometimes it's not.

but pilots are the best... try n get a pilot..

don't listen to the people who are telling you not to use a prisma for developing a tag. yeah they're no good to be tagging shit with because they're nice markers made for dope coloring, but your racking them so it doesn't matter.
for your purposes, they'll do just fine. i've seen some dope prisma handies. it more or less comes down to the chisel tip.
i wouldn't recommend using a magnum or pilot for this simply because the nib is so large. one tag will take up most of a notebook page.
what i would recommend you do is get a notebook at the dollar store, and pretty much anything with a chisel tip, and cover every page with handstyles.
after a few dozen filled notebooks, and a couple months of diligent practice, you should have something to work with.


oh, and do what name said.

What is "Handstyle"?

Is this basically just freehand stuff.

Also, being a toy and living in a small town where there is not a lot of graff going on, I was wondering what are good markers and stuff to start off with so I can just work on my blackbook for now.

thanks.
pilots are good because you can make ur tags massive and they really stick out. i also like on the go markers. garvey is probably the most perminant ink i have used but the purple is kinda gay. pilot ink is good.

jd07
08-19-2005, 07:07 PM

Hey i&#39;m super toy and i&#39;m having a huge problem. Like when i started i was interested in marker work and handstyles. now when i first started i felt that i saw improvement in my handstyle with each notebook that i filled up. but now when it comes time to practical and on the streets, i&#39;m realizing my handstyle lacks flow COMPLETELY. it&#39;s liek soo choppy, the letters touch each other, but it still looks choppy, it&#39;s obvious the letters don&#39;t flow into each other, but rather i just lay them down overlapping. like i duno how to explain it/. i&#39;ll post a pic whnei get home. but yea any suggestions?

I&#39;m also have the same problem with spraying my tag.

#1 tip. make sure you got sick hands before you hit the streets. Don&#39;t go out and make an ass of yourself. I&#39;ve been sketching for a while and gone through like 3 markers and 5 notebooks of nothing but marker tags, and i have YET to hit the street. Simply casue i know i&#39;m not good enough. Don&#39;t get ahead of yourself.

Anyways i&#39;ve been working on my tag. ithink the problem was just my handstyle, it couldn&#39;t flow so i sorta started over again from the ground up i&#39;m alot happier with it now. Maybe another week of practice in the notebooks then i&#39;ll hit the street. also gotta get my spray tag down too.

ok, this is a weird subject. i too had very big problems wih it. and i still suck pkretty much but im getting better. come up with a name. ive had diffrent ones for diffrent reasonsn. my latest one i just looked out the windo there was a florida state semionle flag, so i was like semi sounds good.

now write the word(name) over and over ovver and over.
someone who really has a good handstyle has written thier name thousands of times. dont bother with color just a pencil or pen, and over and over.
i wouldnt recomend doing it on the computer with paint, because your not holding a pen or anything. then once you get one of the letters looking cool, how you like it. then keep that one the same and just write the other letters to match the same style.

good luck andjust write all the time.

haha, i used to do that in high school. i got into graff when i was like a jr. and i&#39;d practice all the time. while the teacher would be talking, i&#39;d go through like 10 pages in my notebook. by the end of the year, i had it down, i think. it looked good anyway. and my handwriting would, and still remains, all graff looking. i know who&#39;s cool by them asking me. they&#39;ll be like, are you into graffiti or something? then i ask them how they could tell, and they are always like, i got a friend who&#39;s into it and he does his S&#39;s like you do.

it shouldnt take u long 2 get ur handstyle down...buy a notebook or suttin..and strat doing handstyles on every page..ull get it down faster...ull start out with a crapy style tho and end up with a good one that u like

I practice em so much it&#39;s like I do it subconciously it&#39;s really weird. Then I come back to my senses and try to stay focused.

bleh..i hope i dont get flamed...but if you need something to work on your handstyles with i suggest like highlighters...for one if they dont bleed so its saving your pages in your notebook.paper. or whatever.. and you cant go writing with a highlighter so its not like wasting a marker on practicing on your style.. i like the chisel tips.. next best thing to a square flat nibs. on most paint markers. unless its round..bleeh..umm. i also like the liquid highlighters.instead of that spongy cotton thing inside is liquid. flows better in my opinion..keep workin on it and develop you own style. be unique. so wen ppl see it they be liek "damn thats siick".. havent been satisfied with my own so i cant give anyone that much advice..

edit.

oh i went on that grand rapids link.
saw this..

alive
01-02-2006, 01:25 PM
a flare is when it quickly goes from a narrow line to a fat line or vice versa. its usually done with spray paint with a flick of the wrist changing the angle of the spray, or by quickly moving the can away from or to the wall while moving it. it can also be done with a chisel tipped marker.

i just take any marker with a fat tip and write w/e name a million times in
old magizines b 4 i throw them away. it helps with handstyles and design.
try your name wide and fat. or tall and skinny, etc. .like i said write that shit a million times. you&#39;ll get something eventually. and it does&#39;nt really mean shit to bite if your just sketching. that&#39;s how i learned how to flow a decent handie.

I used to be the same about getting nervous. But just breathe normally, and to avoid nervousness, take a good look around you first, and then don&#39;t rush it, take your time and put it up, speed and clamness will come in time.

07-09-2007, 07:18 PM
i think u can ask for advice because theres some styles that eeveryone uses
around here everyone has their own handstyle but everyone also uses the philly style wickeds and the long skinny style. I would recommend doing letters seperately and tryin to think of a lil hook up of ur own to put intoo em. Or see what letters in ur name are similar and use that to ur advantage. I also experiment with the size of my letter. Sometimes makin the size increas or decrease towards the end of the word and stuff or having the first or last letter bigger.

yeah i know exactly what u mean
that doesnt really happen to me anymore but during daylight or even sometimes at night when im lookin at my tag and doin it i feel like someones watchin or a cars comin/person and the last couple letters look bad

im tryin to learn how to do it without lookin

and whoever said chisel tips dont work good is crazy
chisel tip is the advanced way of handstyle
it stems back to calligraphy and stuff
i use chisel tips whenever i can and hold it at a 45 degree angle
that works best
if i dont have chisels i use a prismacolor premier metallic silver or a white out pen
i also have a kiwi shoe polish mop

Ok, A while back i wanted to get into handstyle writing. I stared out with one of those industrial black permenants writing under Z.O.E and a pending name until I came up with something better. I boosted a few Prismacolor markers today (a pretty damn good upgrade) and some paint markers, and made up the name Lo Ark. Anyway, I know that when starting handstyle you should take it slow and develop your own style, but I was just wondering for future use, what are so handstyle techniques? I mean today I was practicing and got a really nice flair, then I tried it again and couldnt, so I was just wondering some so I could practice. Thanx :ph34r:

dont add any quot. marks, underlines, ex. points or anything just write random words all over a blank sheet of paper, do it like 2 or 3 times a day and yourgauraunteed to get better handstyles then starting adding the extra shit

I'm goin fuckin nuts, maybe someone can give me some advice.

I write Carnage - I know, it's long, but I'm getting a feel for it, and it's a name I've been using for a while so it's got sentimental value - and I can't do anything to make that C and A look natural next to each other. I've filled about a dozen single subject notebooks in the past month trying to get my handstyle even remotely acceptable, and it's still shit.

No matter what I do, shit looks forced, or like a 8 year old with down syndrome scrawled it out.

I'm gonna post scans tonight when I get home from work, hopefully someone will have some tips for me, but until then, if anyone has any advice or would be willing to write out something that starts with a CA as an example for me, I'd appreciate it.

if your having that much trouble with a C turn it into a K. i know a kid who had the same trouble, but he writes Katalyst now. just try different sizes and shapes of letters. im having some of the same problems as you, but we'll eventually get passed it and have some more problems to deal with lol. :D

I considered that earlier today. I have about a half dozen pages of "KARNAGE" which I'm not too crazy about, and about a dozen pages of "CRN-ONE" which I'm starting to like more and more. I may just shitcan the handle and go with something else that flows better.

Oh well. That name had a good run anyway. =P

No doubt about moving from one problem to the next - I know when I started, the minute I finally sketched a piece I liked (my first decent blockbuster, haha) I realized that my coloring was completely ass. Problems into solutions into new problems, but that's life.

That's ill. Thanks man, I'm gonna keep at it. I've been writing Carnage and CRN-ONE, I dunno, I like both. Nobody said I can't write both, tho. Haha

I've been trying to keep everything a relative size, because that's what everyone says about everything else - I never really considered letting the letters fluctuate in size and shape. It really makes the word flow nicer.

Once I get a few pages done and I get something goin I'll post scans for crits. Thanks again, man.

10-21-2007, 02:03 PM
be more original with your names man.
attack and sake are already well respected writers.

yeah I think there are a few huge writers that go by attack spelled different ways but um as far as names go usually dictionaries or thesauruses are good

rushoner
11-23-2007, 10:21 PM
dont use sace....for one it looks like *say-se* so no 1 will see sake. and second-you need to use a name that represents you or means something to you.....or just something that has good letters and sounds cool....like docter(my name)

pilots are good because you can make ur tags massive and they really stick out. i also like on the go markers. garvey is probably the most perminant ink i have used but the purple is kinda gay. pilot ink is good.



i think pilots are GAY!!
them poster ZiG markers are way better
especially if u like the flat balck color!

I just started like a week ago, I have been writing on sheets of notebook paper every day with pencils, or this huge "marks a lot" marker. I am trying to get used to doing throws and handstyles, since my tag is only 3 letters long its not to hard to do my handstlye yet, I just need to make it flow more..

my tag is EKO by the way, (like economy or ecosystem).

when im sketching i love using decos cause the colours are fun and so viberant. plus there worth the cost(if you buy them) cause they seem to last forever.

when im out taggind i usually use a mop. i love making my tags really drippy and the easiest way is with a mop. you just gotta squeez:)
