I see a lot of questions that are asked such as.......
"What makers do you use"
"How do you blend them"
"How do you do cracks"
"Do you use paint on your sketches"
"How do you get such fine lines"
BLAH BLAH BLAH
Toy questions or not they are commonly asked. So I felt we should have a thread dedicated on answering and helping out with those commonly asked questions.
As you all know their are different Techniques. Such as:
-Tracing paper(Transferring your sketch to furter ink it with out the mess)
-Using Oil Based paint for fine DETAILS (Artist like Cortes)
-Proper Marker usage, for less streaking.
-Preservative for those 3D style or even for Drop shadows
*******So fill free everyone to post those tutorials and lets get it started******
(I start off with something I found)
This Tutorial, if used correctly, can help you ALOT in adjusting your graff pieces. If you dont understand it, look closely at the examples... Examine each diagram carefully, and apply it to your pieces to make them look as if they are in different angles..
One Point Perspective
One point perspective takes one of the three sets of parallel lines of the cube and projects them to a point, a VANISHING POINT. We will say this is the North direction. The other two sets of lines of the cube continue to run parallel and unaltered. This vanishing point can also be considered where your eye is located in relation to objects found on this page. This location of the eye or (vanishing point) becomes the place where cubes shift across in space to show their opposite side, from right to left and from above you to below you.
Two Point Perspective
Two point perspective uses two of these three sets of parallel lines of the cube. It projects one set of parallel lines to the North point and the second set of parallel lines to the East vanishing point. In two point perspective, the third set of lines continues to run parallel. In this case, they run straight up and down. Notice the two points we are using, North and East, are 90 degrees of our horizon. This HORIZON LINE is also the EYE LEVEL LINE. The eye is better to use because if you are underground or in outer space there is no such thing as a horizon but there is always a location of your eyes (eye level).
