Manga Griptape Art Tutorial!


Hello Internet. Here is your Shitskater Alex! Today I got a special show for you here from my warm living room Yes exactly I show you, how to pimp your griptape I chose this manga girl as our design oh yes the weather is also too bad at the moment anyway at least here in Trier Here you can see some of my older designs alwyays with a manga theme thats how I am and here it starts! then you open your image processing software trim it a bit and print it out! and here she comes! I print it twice in case something goes wrong I’m not cheap with that! to get the stencil on the griptape we have to put double sided adhesive tape on the backside also on the edges trim it a bit, just like that Now i pre cut a bit with the x acto knife So i can cut with the scissor I got a round scissor for extra sharp corners Zap and the head is off and again precutting with the x acto also the eyes we will draw the small details later by hand now cutting out the hoodie and then we will put it on adjust it to the center then do the framing with some tape we dont want so spray the whole skateboard then we put the girl on at first the hoodie now the hair for the eyes, I had to use the already cut face to adjust them properly I am too stupid to adjust them free by hand Change of Location: you should always spray outside A lot of cardboard on the floor, nice and now masking the rest of the skateboard now the fun part: the spraying I just spray on it – oh there goes my template there you can also see that I am outside at the fresh air lets stick it on or not putting the tape on it is also ok yep, lets go on the hoodie shouldnt become too white, thats why we take it off now dry it a bit also put a little paint on it hoho now we can take off the tape very nice and sharp edges and the eyes also, yeah this part isn my favourite, cause I’m bad at drawing freehand but thats what makes the pic great you can not cut out all those small details I specially bought new sharpies for that sponsored by adsense of course… here you see even for the mouth I need a template later the mouth would be on the forehead…we dont want that eyes…eyelashes…all that stuff and the eyebrows mini nostrils and here we go so and its already done looks good, doesnt it? if you have any questions, you can ask them in the comments I hope I could get you some tips thats it again! see you next time, your shitskater alex, bye
