Hi, I'm Paes 164. Now I am going to show you how to do a character. Once again, getting your base wall color down, I feel that black is a great color to start a character with, that way you kind of build up off your shadows. So I'm just going to do a little goofy little monster, something I might typically replace my E of my graffiti piece, so it'd be P-A, graffiti monster, S still representing my E.

Let's go ahead and start off with the base shape of the monster and I'm going to use the same color that I'm going to paint my monster, a blue monster in for my sketching. Having that black as a background, as a base definitely eliminates spending a lot of time having to shade in all that black. You can just come in and see what I'm doing. I'm kind of just building this blue into the black and only as my base color.

Doing some of the same flair techniques, as I've shown in the other videos. Kind of working my way all the way around the lip with this blue. Again, whether realistic or cartoonish the black really serves as a good base to fade into. I also came in with a little bit of a darker blue, but you can still see how I'm utilizing that black to build my shades up off of. I got these big bubbly eyes popping up. I'm going to go ahead and re-outline them white and color them in.

Getting into your character it's definitely better to use thinner tips and outline tips. Like the graffiti piece itself where you're building up from a primer and building into it with the cuts and the fades and everything we talked about. Now I'm going to come in and also add a little bit of the background. Kind of the same type of landscape background that we worked on in other pieces, just by fading in my darker color purple.

I'm using a little bit of a fatter tip. That way you get a nice fade easy. Right now, I'm going through and just getting all my outline done, some areas doing some thicker lines. I'm getting this setup for all the highlights I'll be doing in my green. All right, I'm working my way through this character looking pretty shabby-shabby.

I'm just going to take a little bit of this green, something that's going to compliment the blue, do a couple of highlights and you know just have a lot of fun. Whenever you do do characters, like I said, it's just kind of a format on how to break it down. Whether it is realistic or cartoonish just get your base color down, get a good background color going. Use the right type of tips and just break it down and format it right back out. This green is really going to set it off.
