There's no better way to show your enthusiasm and support for your favorite Ohio State Buckeyes sports team than through holding an Ohio State sign at a game. This makes a great addition regardless of the team, whether it be for their championship-winning basketball team, football team or any other team. Drawing an Ohio State sign is pretty simple if you follow a few key steps and have the right supplies on hand to do it plus 10 to 15 minutes to spare.
Things You'll Need
- Poster board
- Red, black, and gray markers
Draw a large block letter "S" using a thick marker so that the outer four corners as well as the outer two corners of the middle portion of the "S" are small flat sides instead of rounded corners.
Repeat the same same style of lettering for the rest of the words "OHIO STATE" working your way out from the central "S." Each letter should be capitalized, and the left outer "O" and right outer "E" should be larger then the letters between them and the capital "S" at the center. The letters should form the appearance of an arc that rises from the sides and peaks at the central "S" with the outer letters that are slightly larger sticking out beyond the bottom of the arc.
Draw the outline of the large, octagon-shaped capital "O" behind the words "OHIO STATE." Use a thick gray marker to draw the outline of the "O." Instead of the gray lines crossing through the words "OHIO STATE," draw the gray lines so that they go above the top of the arching word and out, ending above the letters at each end. The lower portion of the outline of the "O" should have gray lines that head out along the lower portion of the arched words ending just before the letters at the end which should stick out and block the lines from going further.
Fill in the large "O" with a red marker leaving the area behind the letters "OHIO STATE" empty.
Draw a message in bubble letters above and below the Ohio State University emblem. A common message on Ohio State signs is "Go Bucks go!"
Tips & Warnings
- Use a pencil to sketch the design before using marker; that way you have the option to correct mistakes instead of starting all over again on a new posterboard.
- Use a ruler to help with accuracy, although a ruler is not at all necessary to make a good Ohio State sign.
