I must of forgot that rule, i always use pen...

that's unless you have years of experience under your dick

That's bull shit. It's a good thing if you can get your lines down in one time. If you have can in your hand you also can't sketch 100 pencil lines, you have to draw the line right the first time.

"I keep myself so lifted I'm accustom to new heights."

Feb 24, 2007 @ 23:55
Yo Loch,Near and Prime props to all of you.Reading this thread is inspiring me to keep on writing, there are some dope color mixes in your pieces Loch and Near how do you guys keep the graff so clean with so many colors?


Feb 25, 2007 @ 18:43
To me, someone is truly an ill writer when they can hit something off with one solid color and its still the illest shit youve seen.

For example Prime's outline in the best shit in this thread right now filled or unfilled.

Its all practice man.

I should probably use the remaining pages from my gr.9 artbook. Most of it is abstract anyways, so it doesn't matter too much. Great shit guys.
Mar 03, 2007 @ 04:01
What kind of spraypaint you guys use?

I use montana...
Mar 03, 2007 @ 04:04

Mar 03, 2007 @ 10:04
Haha I did that shit in class so I woudlnt have to pay attention put real talk pointalism is a bitch
Mar 03, 2007 @ 14:57
Who has experience with Krylon??? The crap from Wal-Mart.

\never used it, is it any good? everyone from the states seem to be using that.

I think montana is the best personally, never had a prob with it.
Mar 03, 2007 @ 22:23
bought a new marker today, and racked a new tube of liquid shoe polish
Mar 03, 2007 @ 23:38
Krylon is decent shit you just need new tips, you can paint with anything once you learn some control feel me..
Mar 04, 2007 @ 15:49

should hook you up. Ive always got my tips from other more experienced writers. But I dont get up illegally anymore
Mar 04, 2007 @ 23:11
It doesn't really matter about the paint brand, just make sure you have a set of fat and thin caps, and you're good to go.
Mar 04, 2007 @ 23:49
my love for markers has SKYrocketted these few days. damnnnnnn
Mar 05, 2007 @ 10:35
WOW, this thread is full of Wackness. Though there is a few good shitz but I expected better.

Heres a quick taste of my stuff
Mar 05, 2007 @ 11:34
go to Staples, or some business depot shit, and ask for blank papered notebooks, they'll have what you want

first rule of blackbooking - ALWAYS at least etch it lightly in pencil first. don't just take to the pens/sharpies, cause you're gonna waste half your book

here's some of my pics. new book, doesnt have much yet. all in pencil too, havn't had time to sharpie and fineline

learn 2 tag b4 u try throw ups an learn trow ups b4 u try to do a burner or piece.............bottom line if u cant tag then u cant do a piece that will look any good ...............ur a toy ..............ur mot a graff writer unless u paint in the streets ............tagging in a book does not make a graffiti writer ................war 4 coming soon check www.war42.com ........

How much did all this cost you fella? Im guessing by the montana boxes that you didnt rack this.

Amazing setup, im all out at the moment but need to store up for the summer

Mar 07, 2007 @ 15:27
