better to sketch first?

Recommended Posts

I dont really sketch i just find a spot and look at the wall and see what im gonna do. Is that good or bad? Besides not getting caught witha black book? Because I really suck at drawing with a pencil or pen (of any kind).

don't freestyle it. yes its better to sketch and plan before painting. it will show in your final product. try to take the thinking out of the painting process. then at the wall you can focus on reproducing your idea. don't bring your blackbook, just photocopy the pages you need to use that night. its also a good idea to try out different color schemes with your photocopies until you get the desired effect you are going for.

good thread.

Dont become dependant on the sketch. You should plan everything out.

First draw some shit out. You say you suck with a pen and pencil. If this is

the case you probably should leave the paint alone until you no longer

suck with pen and pencil. Its not that hard... If your drawings suck I bet your

walls suck 10 times more.

 

After you sketch something you like.... Sketch it a bunch more times. If you

had to erase at all then you need to draw it over and over and get it right.

PEN IS A BETTER INDICATION OF YOUR PREPAREDNESS. DRAW WITH PEN

 

dont bring your blackbook to a wall. Bring out a piece of paper if you decide to

bring anything at all.

1) you dont want to lose it the blackbook

2) you dont want the police to catch you with it either.

 

With this sketch... only look at it if you have to. If you find yourself

copying something from paper to wall its going to take a long ass time

and it probably wont turn out right.

Maybe just study it before you throw down.

Hope that was helpful.

fuck sketching, fuck practice boards, just spray horrendous shit all over the place. that's graffiti!

 

but seriously...

 

sketch with pen, great advice.

if you can't draw the shit tight, then keep working, because you still suck.

then practice practice practice on a board until it looks so fly you can't stand it.

and even if you always day time it, practice in the dark with no light at all (cheater) until you can do it with your eyes closed. that includes the fill in and the outline; or else you'll be hitting some public ass wall once you have balls and it'll be pitch black, you're using dark colors and have your outline 2 feet away from your fill.

 

if you've practiced enough, you'll be able to do it blindfolded.

 

oh, and on that topic, use a color you can see in the dark for your outlines.

 

and again, it doesn't matter if you always do day time, you'll have a spot some day you gotta do at night, and you should be versatile.

i like to sketch. i prefer loose leaf paper in stead of black books. i very very rarely use a sketch when i paint though. i think ones ability to freestyle is a testimony to ones fluency with their style.

rule number 1. never paint anything until u sketch it out first. unless of course u already kno how to burn. in that case you know what the fuck you are doing and can ignore my rule number one.
