Weather temperatures in Holland are still pretty much below zero, sowe decided to do another indoor spot. Indoor spots are good for trying new directions and are fun to do during the winterseason.
We had the idea of making rather simple pieces which are partly disintegrated by a tornado.
We painted the wall with a selection of greys from the belton range.
We kept the style of the pieces pretty basic because after adding all the effects we wanted the letters to still stand out and not becoming unreadable.
First we painted a comic style tornado in the middle.
Next we started painting the letters and put an outline around it and added a simple 3d.
After that it was time to add the movement lines in the fill and 3d to create a motion effect.
To spice it up we added some dirt all over the piece to make it look more realistic.
The transparant black came in handy for some drop shadows.
The last thing was to add some finishing touches such as adding the crewname inside the tornado and do some minor touch-ups.
All in all it was a good exercise and the effects work well.

Summer has finally arrived in Holland so we thought it was time to do another productionwall in our hometown.
The idea was to do a wall with a wolf in sheep’s clothing character and a little piggy and call it ‘Still not loving police’ (named after the song Still Dre by Dr. Dre). We recieved some exchange sketches by Noks from Serbia and decided to paint them also on this wall.
Painting someone else’s sketch forces to put you out of your comfort zone. This can be good, you learn to understand how another writer thinks and construct his pieces. You can learn a lot from this and it helps improve your style.
Because of the relative small size of the wall we had to work very clean in order to make our pieces stand out. Therefore we used Belton cans, you can make really small details with those cans. We painted several names around our pieces. Those are people we recently painted with or did hang out with… Not that they necessarily also still not love police…
We painted in chill modus and got a little carried away with adding details and effects. Another wall done and we learned a lot from this experience… on to the next wall… Thanks to Noks for the sketches!

We had some fun customizing our own graffiti umbrella. Romeo came up with the idea of painting an umbrella in graffiti style a while ago. Since it was raining we couldn’t paint outside, so we decided it was about time to pimp the umbrella’s. We never did see a graffiti umbrella before so it was a nice experiment to try.

Painting a big blockbuster piece with rollerpaint is allways fun. Problem is to find a suitable spot for those pieces. This spot is located next to a railroad track, so very readable from the passing trains.
Most people think it’s easy to do blockbusters, but actually it’s more difficult to make a good blockbuster than a regular piece. All the proportions of the letters have to be right, otherwise it doesn’t look good. Check the outcome of the wall after the jump

This time we did another experiment with primary colors. We wanted to add a melting effect to the letters without the letters becoming unreadable. To get the best result we thought that the fill in should be mostly done with hard edges and the melted part only with curly waves. It worked very well. Check out the endresult after the jump
