Make a realistic graffiti look with Paintshop Pro, by DuPz0r.

This tutorial can be used with PS too, but someone else can make that if they wish.

Step 1:
First, get a picture of a normal brick wall, a straight perspective would be easier.

Step 2:
Get yourself a font and/or a picture that you like.
Make sure the colors you have are bright so they constrast well with the brick wall.
Mess around with them untill you like the look of what you have.

Your graffiti should now look like its been sprayed onto the wall realisticly.

Tips -

When making your graffiti, make it light and a bright color, for the best results.

If you choose to do it on a white wall or something bright, then make the graffiti dull, and use Multiply instead of Overlay.

text looks good

might want to try and get it so it doesn't show the outline of the bricks so much

nice tut, havent seen something like this before, i think it works with gimp too rolleyes.gif hopefully

Most of my work i use psp, but there is some things i prefer to do in ps, like making textures for 3d objects.

nice tut, you just should've picked out a less blurry photo to work with, but anytho it's still a pretty good tut.

I had some troubles with the color, it kept seeming to "fake". Still doesnt seem right.

I would sugest taking some of the saturation out of it, so it looks alittle dull, and that would look alot more real.

Yeah, its not really thats hard to do, you just need to learn the layer toolbar, and its properties.

I wish i used a better graffiti tag for this tutorial, but you know whatever image you use, it should overlay pretty much the same way.

it depends on how the wall is, and the font you used, but if used properly its great!
