Digital Graffiti Art – My Process, Analog To Digital

Are you wondering about how to make digital graffiti? So was I. Being a graffiti artist back in the day to now a Graphic Designer, I wanted to combine these skills and create something. In this article, I will quickly breakdown the process. And also show a video of the process.

How To Make Digital Graffiti

  1. Gather reference or freestyle
  2. Sketch your outline by hand or in your favorite software
  3. Convert your outline to strokes in illustrator
  4. Use the outline to create fill mask
  5. Design your fill in Illustrator or Photoshop
  6. Create your 3D effect
  7. Create inline and outer outline
  8. Finalize composition

The video below shows how I employed this process. First starting with a sketch. Then going through converting to vector, in order to create 3D using Maya and Keyshot. The 3D part of this is definitely not necessary.
