Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm going to show you how to draw step by step the word, friends in graffiti. So graffiti style is sort of street art style and it's like letters with a lot of like flourish and attitude and stuff. So I'm just drawing like the F. I'm not a real pro at this style. It's just an approximation but see I'm making all kinds of, it's as if the words were sort of I don't know, cut out of paper or something and folded around a little bit, so that's the F. And here's the R. Sometimes there's like stuff like arrows, I'm just putting an arrow in here and there will be all kinds of like little, it's just got a lot of attitude you know? So I'm putting that in. There's the R and here's the I. I'm just going to make it kind of jagged and I'll put the dot up top like that and here's the E. You can have the letters kind of go behind each other too because it's almost like these letters are cartoon characters kind of. They've got a lot of personality. There's the E and I'm going to put the N like this. I'm mixing lower case and capital letters sort of a general disregard for the rules of letters a little bit because graffiti is kind of irreverent, it's for rule breakers. And here's the D. I'm putting that behind there and you can see it all the way behind there and then the S. I'm going to also put behind even that and then it comes like that and let's say it goes like that. Just to tie it all together. So that's how I draw the word friends in graffiti.
