  1. 1

    Draw a skateboard deck onto a sheet of paper, and use it as a template to establish where you want the graphic, and how it will look on the board. Make the necessary adjustments until it's perfect.

  2. 2

    Sketch the finalized design onto the skateboard; do it lightly at first, and then slowly darken it once you are satisfied with your work.

  3. 3

    Use the permanent marker to trace over the pencil lines. This will make your design pop out, and also help to ensure that it lasts through a few hard-core skate sessions.

  4. 4

    Use other permanent markers to fill in some color. If you're looking for something a little different, purchase a few paint pens; not only do they offer a great variety of colors, but they can also incorporate some texture into your work.
