The favourite tools of Street Artists in London tend to be spray paint, chalk or markers. Spray Paint is preferred by many street artists as it is quick and easy to do, especially with the help of a stencil. Many street artists add light and shade to their work to make it look 3D.
When creating 3D art work the first thing you need to do is find an area with minimal traffic so it will be easier to complete your art work quickly. When creating the art work consider the view point and make sure it can be seen by as many people as possible.
The first thing you need to do is create the outline of the art work, for example if you are drawing a fish tank then draw the tank. Then add the details such as the fish in the tank and plants in the tank.
Now you can start adding the colouring to the artwork, you may choose to blend in the colours with your hand or even wear a glove to help with the blending. It may be wise to start with mid-tone colours and then work in the darkness and light on top.
It is important that you determine where the light is coming onto your picture to make it 3D in appearance, adding shading to your artwork will help create depth to the artwork and using the same colour in different shades will show as shadow and light.
