in StreetArt2 months ago

Hello HIVE
Hope you all doing all right
Welcome to the my first official contest
The Graffiti Lettering Contest


Shout out to @failingforwards for providing us this nice header for the meantime! Really appreciated! Thanks a lot!

I'm planning to do an official "Graffiti Lettering Contest" graffiti as a main logo at some point, but if anyone feeling fancy giving it a go or doing some digital art for it feel free to do so and I'll be happy to have a look and maybe use it as our main logo!
So get creative people 😎

Congrats again and hope to see more entries from you all 🤩 Cheers 😎

I will post here a list of people who I think could appreciate the contest, people who helped and supported me in the idea and friends. I will also add any future participants and winners.
I will do this also as a reminder, I personally appreciate it when I get tagged in contests that I usually participate in, but if anyone prefers not to get tagged please let me know and I will remove your name from the list.
Let me know also if you want to get added to this list! Cheers

Contest Overview

As you can probably guess from the title the contest is about Graffiti and Lettering, my idea is to give a random "word" every week and the participants will have to make a nice Graffiti Lettering of the word on paper (or in any way they want really, it can be drawn, painted, sprayed on a wall, you can do what you want! If you feeling fancy you can do a proper graffiti on a wall and it will surely gets extra votes 😎 at least from me 😋 ), make a quick post about it and comment their entry under the Contest Post!

I am planning to do this at least 2 times a month in this way:

  • I will post the Contest Post with the random word and participants will have time until payout (7 days) to submit their entries.
  • Once the Contest Post gets paid I will then do a Voting Post where participants and users can vote for their preferred entries, (3 votes per person - anyone can vote, not only participants!)
    Similarly to the Contest Post the Voting Post will be up and running until Payout (7 days)
  • Then I will post the next Contest Entry but at the beginning of the post I will announce the winners of the previous entry and send out payments (with screenshot proof)! Then I will dive in the next word and contest!

Hope it all makes sense!

The word for today is...

In my first round I received 4 entries and all with different styles and techniques, I was blown away and thanks again for all the participants! You are what makes this contest great! Thanks 😎
Big props for you guys @brittandjosie @ryzeonline @gaboamc2393 @yems

The word last time was START and I think NEXT is a perfect word for this next week ehehe I also look at letters and how they could join together and how they could look, I think N E X T could really get you people crazy and I'm really curious to see your next entries, especially @yems I really wanna see what you can manage to do with more time in your hands 🤩

And I'm also really curious to see if we'll get any new members this week 🤞

Here's my work (so you have a general idea about the contest 😁)


I also have been assisted in this by my girlfriend, I did this sketch in like really 2 minutes at work and she liked it a lot! Especially the lines going over the other letters as she suggested it as a "translucent" effect, I told her that I did not see it but that I will use it because she did 😁 And she was happy to help me finishing some lines for me while I was editing this post! She also did some effects as you can see. She's my angel ♥️

I did not have much time this time so it's not a very good entry, I didn't even do any shade or 3d, just simple lettering! (not even that great IMHO)

I will not be actively participating to this contest, I will try to always post my work either in the post itself or under it in a comment but I will never consider my work as an official entry in this contest! 😁

Great work! :))

Thanks man 😁

Oh thank you all for voting for my experiment. For this occasion I will surprise you with something more elaborate, time permitting. Thank you very much for the prize and for the contest friend @trippymane, a virtual hug haha.

I will continue with my style, let's see what comes out for this edition. Best regards.

Go for it my friend! a virtual hug to you too!

It's a wonderful idea and I also like the fact that you got to start on paper anyway to create the lettering, the start is the same, figuring out the letters in your head and make them real on paper, once you have them you are ready to "create" them where we can only draw them! And art is art bro any form and shape is welcome!

Big up and can't wait to see what's going to be your next creation! 😎

I liked what you said about art being art in its different expressions and it certainly is. There are several aspects of art involved here: drawing, photography and in my case, sculpture. So your contest is the basis for a lot of creativity. Applause for your initiative to create this contest.

Thank you so much! 🙏😎

It makes me really happy that you say this! I'm glad to be able to get people creative! As you say it's a process that requires multiple steps and my goal first of all is to create a way for you guys to have fun and get creative!

Thanks again for the feedback! Much appreciated 😁

Quick and simple! Nice 💯

Good luck!

Woooo! Congrats on your contest moving forward, and thanks so much for the award, I'm honored! I'll probably pass on the #Next one, but I'm looking forward to seeing others' entries. (And great job on your 'two-minute sketch', woo!) 🙏

Thanks for the feedback! :)

No trouble, remember that you'll always welcome to participate! If you ever have some spare time and feeling fancy to sketch or create, my contest will be here ready for you!

(And great job on your 'two-minute sketch', woo!) 🙏

Thanks a lot 😁

Wish you a great day :)

My pleasure, and thanks for the invite, #KeepRyzing ! 🙏
