How to draw graffiti letter Y step-by-step
The following slideshow will show you how to design a semi-wildstyle “Y” graffiti letter step-by-step.
Key Area of the letter Y & the concept of "key areas"
There are lines and and areas inside of a letter shape which are crucial for recognizing the letter. These areas are so called "key areas".
