How to Draw Graffiti Letters Step-by-Step
We created a graffiti app for android-smartphones.
In this app, we just want to focus on how to draw graffiti letters step-by-step and the step-by-step drawing process of graffiti, as can be seen in the example next to this text.
There is a tutorial for every letter of the alphabet.
So, all you need to do is to grab a sheet of paper, a pencil and markers, and follow the instructions step by step.
The creation process of a graffiti piece usually starts with a tag/handstyle. The letters are constructed around the tag.
Constructing a letter is quite similar. The following steps describe the steps shown in the image above:
- Step 1: Start just with lines
- Step 3: Style the blocks by adding serifs and enlarging elements of the letter
- Step 4: Add a gradient fill-in
- Step 5: Add blocks to make the graffiti look 3D
- Step 6: add the keyline, bubbles as a background effect and highlights on top of the fill-in
Even though the design process is not exactly the same every time, you can use it as a guideline and vary the fill-in, backgrounds, the type of 3D effect, shadows, and so on.
Graffiti Alphabet Blank Templates
The easiest way to create consistent graffiti alphabets in a similar style and composition is to use grids.
This is why I decided to provide two printable blank templates for both – graffiti letters and numbers.
I hope they help you to improve your style.

I love sketching on paper as well, but drawing on iPad offers a lot of additional possibilities.
The app offers hundreds of free brushes.
You can additionally create brushes on your own.
Not to mention, a lot of people already selling brushes for tags, handstyles and graffiti lettering in general as well.
Below, you will find a growing collection of time-lapse drawing videos of graffiti letters done with Procreate.
I hope they inspire you! Which one is your favorite?
The “normal” iPad (not the pro-version) and the first Apple Pencil are good enough to start out with iPad lettering. They are way cheaper than the Apple Pencil 2 and iPad Pro and good enough for drawing with Procreate.
Now It’s Your Turn
Grab a piece of paper and markers.
Or take your iPad and start using Procreate
We hope you are inspired!
