Alright guys, here's the deal, I've got a bicycle frame that I like a lot and it's time for a new paint job. After discussing it with a friend I've decided I would like to paint the bike a solid color and instead of ordering replacement decals I'd like to redo the name of the bike in graffiti style lettering. Now I'm not some random f*ck off the net trying to find a random graff forum to put in some free work, I mean...that's pretty much what I am but I've been frequenting and posting on this site for years so whatever. Also I could sketch some sh*t up myself but that's so boring, I have to look at this bike everyday so I want something fresh, plus from over time I've taken notice to some really talented artists on this forum. Like the title says, I would like to have a little contest, and I would like as many writers from this site to participate as possible. Pretty simple eh.
tl;dr-I want you people to compete over a little blackbook piece to go on my favorite bike.
Here what's up-
-There are 2 words, the main one is PARAMOUNT, the other is SCHWINN.
-The word PARAMOUNT I want to be in thicker letters that could have a 1 color fill. It should have a shadow or simple 3d.
-I would like them to be somewhat legible because I want regular bike retards to be able to see what kind of bike it is while at the same time being donkey punched upside the face by its bad-assery. I still want it to have some style though, I could do boring stiff straights myself, I know yall got that style, that's why I'm here.
-Take into consideration that the space I'm working with is a tube that is 1-1.5 inches tall. I can adjust the specs of the design before I transfer but just sayin. Remember not to over-complicate with extra details and mostly concentrate on design rather than colors/fill.
-I'm a fan of all graffiti, so anything from some grimey throws, some clean straights, just some nutty Fresh Prince sh*t, I want it all.
-The word SCHWINN I would like a decent handstyle for, my handies are hella drab son. Legible but give it that steez. This will not be the main focus but I want it on there somewhere.
-Anybody can participate, as many entrees as you want, the more the better. I don't require that both words be by the same person but it would be nice.
-I don't have an actual deadline, I'm still in the process of prepping the frame. Let's say a month from this post though.
What the winner gets:
-Pretty much f*cking nothing. Just kidding, you get the satisfaction of knowing you're unique design is going to ride for long ass time on this bike, I'll straight murk a buffer that steps near my sh*t, no joke.
-You get pictures, I promise to post pics of the finished product, with a scenic background even. I can even mail you high res versions to add to your portfolio.
-I plan to replicate the design exactly onto the tube of the bike, I'm still deciding on the best method to do this but trust that I will do your work justice. The paint job will be of a professional quality and clear-coat will be added, so sh*ts gonna look cash yo.
-If you approve, I will also replicate a handstyle that says something like "designed by _____" some where on the bike that I'm still deciding on. The name that is put on there is up to you, I'd really like it to be your actual handy, this part would be left out of online photos for safety, but I'm no piggy and understand if you don't want to do this.
-I may even get all fancy and arrange to pay AP to send a fancy mop or some other prize depending on the amount of participation with the contest.
Capitalization is at the artists discretion.
I'd really like to see some of you guys hop on this and knock some sketches out like I see you do in battles, I'd hope to see some of the regulars here, the subject is simple so anyone who tries can win. I may bump this thread around the forum a bit so don't hate guys. Thanks for reading this ginormous block of words if anything, stay trill.
