    .....graff guys who can't paint........

    Discussion started by CAPS - Apr 7, 2002

    ....Went out last night with a friend. I drug his ass out after he hadn't painted in 2 years. He draws some of the sickest outlines I have ever seen but we get to the freights and he just chokes. I ask him why he can't seem to get it together and he says that he doesn't like painting letters BUT he can draw sick letter shit. I don't get it. Is it really that hard to paint what you draw? No offense to him cause we still wrecked and had fun but I guess it just puzzles me.

    Anybody else have this problem? It seemed to really piss him off that he couldn't rock it. Maybe it's cause he hadn't painted in so long but I doubt it cause we got to a super chill freshly buffed water tower and he had all the time he needed and still was failing.

    wierd.... just observing.

    i think most everyone is like that to some degree , drawing something and actually painting it are completely different , in painting there are so many more variables that come into play . if i could paint half as good as i could draw id be alot happier man .

    yea, It's pretty hard to paint something that you drew and still have it look good. when it's going onto a bigger surface, the proprtions are much harder to get right. I've been able to rock good fills for a while now. that's something that can be accomplished pretty easily. But rocking true pieces, not just nicely-colored fills, is much harder. I'm getting alot better at the pieces, tho. I just switched up names and my shit's flowing much better.
