Taboo paints Sirum's Sketch

Painting this proved to be a lot harder than it looked. I think it may have been that I painted it on a small wall. I lost one of the coolest accents on the piece which was the flame shape on the top of the B. I compensated with this with the flames in the 3-D highlights. As I was restricted on the vertical, I also felt restricted on the horizontal plane as well, but all in all I tried my best to do justice to the outline.

The bull you drew looked almost like vector art/ a sports team logo. Thus my approach while painting the bull, as well as the piece, was to have no fades. I really liked the letters so I stayed pretty close to the original. As you can see I beefed up the body of the T as it comes from the A, and I curved the bottom of the B.

All in all it was a great learning experience. I know for round 2… Bigger is better!


  1. that bull came out on point

  2. I think you did a really nice job!
    Im glad you liked the letters as I really wanted to funk them out a bit, and I reckon that there is no way you could have done a better job considering the wall size, so nice good work bro!
