Graffiti letters are incredibly stylised. There are many different types of graffiti letter kinds, from wild style to street style to bubble style. The trick in drawing graffiti letters in bubble letter style is to keep all the edges smooth without sacrificing the unique graffiti feel. This will ensure that you'll get a polished, funky finished product that doesn't appear too cartoon-like.

  1. 1

    Make four small dots on a piece of paper with a pencil. The dots should form a rectangle shape, as large or small as you'd like the entire word to be. This will allow you to concentrate on each individual letter without worrying about the sizes being different. Within the rectangle, make small vertical lines to reserve a space for each letter.

  2. 2

    Outline the first letter in the designated space you created. Graffiti letters feature overemphasised corners and edges that bend and melt together with the other letters. To capture the bubble letter style, keep all the corners soft and don't create any sharp edges. Dot any letters that require it with a softened square shape, and make the letter take up the entire designated area.

  3. 3

    Complete the word, concentrating on one letter at a time. Make the letters lean and curl around each other, almost as if you were trying to smash them together. Each letter should be the same size and contain similar lines and shapes.

  4. 4

    Erase all evidence of the rectangle you originally created, including the dots and any visible lines that separate the letters.

  5. 5

    Re-outline the graffiti letters with the tip of your pencil. Make the lines bold and smooth. It should appear as if a singular line was used to create the entire word. Use the side of your pencil to shade the bubble graffiti letters accordingly.
