    cant get any decent markers here unless i order them online in the meantime i did find a good quality set of watercolor pencils, considering usual graff work would it be better to get those orartist grade regular pencils?

    as a beginner you need to learn how to structure your letters. a BIG part of doing so is writing them in a clean, simple, and LEGIBLE way.
    avoiding beef would be a good idea at first... later too, but it depends on what you want, and how your scene is. for example, my scene is whack and it gets uber boring and lonely at times here, so personally I'm a beef digger mostly.
    also at first, you'd wanna go to places people dont go to, ie: chill spots... to practice and get good can control that is, but then you have to move out of the basement if you know what i mean and out into the open to get up in the most public, and most popular and busy spots possible.
    scouting your spots ahead of time is always healthy. so good on that.

    dont go over good pieces if you're not better then them, even if it's a legal wall. that's the rule.
    dont look for beef if you don't have teeth strong enough to chew it.

    that about sums it up

    To tell you the truth im really scared of getting caught. So if id want to learn can control I would do it on a canvas.

    I will try my best to stay legal.

    What about not getting caught, any more rules to add?

    fuck legals son. legal writers are pussies
    canvas is useless for your can flow. unless you get a lifesize canvas, that could work. remember that graffiti requires you to move your whole body, not just your hand/arm... yuo gotta dance wit it to get those real nice lines flowin
    more on not getting caught: don't carry any identification on you. leave your wallet at home and only take some money in your pockets... probably wear something on your face if its a public spot. umm but mostly the number one rule to not getting caught is running quick, but you said you got that down. so.. cool
    peace out yo

    hmm well its like a open space in the middle with big fuckoff piles of bricks and at the side closest to the road there is a small roof and on the far side there is a little place with a roof

    also you can see in from the road side if you try

    but the big fuckoff abandoned warehose is a big warehouse with a roof and a 2 story building and outside walls and a mini skatepark! :P

    I didn't understand one bit of what I just read. Just say fuck it and bomb it if you want. Don't be scared.

    OK another question. I'm looking at GROG markers, right now i'm gonna stick with markers until I get better with my letters. I see there are two types of refills, ink and metal paint. Can someone here explain the differences and which one can be used on what surface? I looked at the web and there's nothing graffiti specific.

    Hey so I just came up on 20 cans of striping paint in my garage, anyone ever heard of or use it to paint? The difference is basically using a chiseled tip compared to a straight point. Ive been practicin a couple throws with it and since it has a straight chiseled spray it fills way faster and more area only problem is outlines and details. the cans are also larger so they hold more. I feel like I could do some sick fast throws if I just learned to can control with em or if anything just replace the tips.

    @ravid1 are the cans Krylon? cause i heard with those ones you can take a knife and do something to the chisel cap and make the spray round. youtube it or something it's pretty simple i think.


    in terms of blackbooks what exactly makes something a 'freestyle'? like i know if you do a piece in pencil then go over it in pen it's not a freestyle but would it be if you just did it in pen/pencil?
    I sever heads, just to sharpen my skills

    I'd say a freestyle is when you don't correct a piece you've drawn. whatever your first lines were, if you keep them, that's a freestyle. that's what I think my definition of it is
