Splatterbox Guide

[ Splatterbox Tutorial ]

About, guide, tips and more!



+ The bomb is a commonly used tool, famous for its round shape and solid color.

+ The pencil is less commonly used, but still popular.  The thin lines are perfect for creating a sketched look.

+ The eraser is probably the most common tool, for obvious reasons.

+ There are plenty of other tools to use, but those create less-awesome drawings ;)

+ Squares and rectangles are simple shapes because of the fact that you only have to draw 4 lines.  To make a square, hold a ruler or other straight object up to your screen and make the four corners. Then fill in the lines inbetween.

+ Triangles are also easy, depending on the type.  To make a triangle, use your ruler to guide yourself in making the three corners. Then, taking your time, fill in the lines!

+ Curvy lines take a little more practice, but are hard to mess up!  There’s really no right or wrong way to make a curvy line! Just remember to take your time!

+ Practice, practice, practice!  The more you practice then the better you’ll become.  Dont give up!  Keep working at it and be original.  You can do it!!



+ These shapes are slightly harder, so practice your basic shapes and lines first!

+ Circles are difficult to explain. Experiment until you get it right!

+ Make a heart by creating a downward arrow, then placing two half circles on the top.



—[Drawing Pictures]—

Now I’ll show you how to draw pictures in splatterbox.

#1- Pick something to draw

I’ve chosen an apple. Feel free to search up a picture of your subject, to make your job easier.

#2- Draw your shape with bombs

*Optional- If you’ve mastered the task, feel free to sketch your shape using the pencil before you use the bombs.*

My Apple!

#3 – Save!

Be sure to save the finishing product! There are ways to save.

Take a snapshot with your OW camera! *This keeps people from viewing your splatter in splatterbox, which makes it nearly impossible for them to steal!*


+ Pick something simple to draw as a beginner. For example, don’t try to create a splatter of Katy Perry’s face when you haven’t mastered straight lines!

+ Nobody is perfect. Except for Chuck Norris.

+ Don’t rush! I know I’ve said this already, but go slow and keep a steady hand! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and same goes for unique and beautiful splatters!

+ Stealing isn’t cool. Face it, no one wants their work stolen. By the way, taking a common splatter and changing the color doesn’t make an original splatter!


Here are some awesome SplatterBox Examples!
