Recently this month, MTV celebrated its 35th anniversary, and just a couple of nights ago, I saw this years VMA's with a historic show at Madison Square Garden on TV. So, in honor of all of those achievements, I thought it'd be very appropriate to paint the classic logo to show its appreciation. For me, sometimes, I like to think of August as MTV / Music Video Month in honor of the network's original launch, which took place back in 1981.
Step 1: Yellow M
First, I used Yellow to paint the block letter "M" in the center of the palm of my hand.
Step 2: Blue Shadows
Then, I added light blue to the sides of the letter to make it more 3D. You will see in the very end that I painted a darker blue on top to make it pop out more.
Step 3: Red TV
Now, I went into my Beach Berry Red, and painted the graffiti styled "TV" along the side of the M.
Step 4: Outline
Finally, I used black to outline the entire logo, and it's done!
Step 5: I Want My MTV!
Now, this is one classic logo worth celebrating music videos with!
