    Sedan as Cool
    Usually, the grandfathermobile sedans don't engender
    the passions of most hot rodders. My aim was to change that; if just a little.

    I started out with a 40 Ford 2-door sedan.
    Front fenders and running boards have been removed.
    The rear fenders are two pairs of 40 Ford rear fenders welded together
    to give an enclosed, pontoon look. The area behind the doors has been
    shortened and pie cut down the middle to produce a boat tail look.
    A Zephyr grill might add a bit more style to the front end.
    A two tone paint job finished this one off.


    Also some work-up sketches I used to make the final rendering.

    Hi all! It's been a while since I had something new to show, but here's a T-shirt I did for the Norwegian Chrysler club. We printed one orange on black, and one dark blue on orange, and yeah; I know. –It's not Hot Rods but it is art. Hope it can inspire some of you like you inspire me each week.

    Medium: Pencil on paper (upper and lower car) Ink on paper (Middle car) Digitally cleaned up and stripes added. Typography digitally drawn.

    The works here on the tread are very nice.

    ** May questions to the artists follow:

    1. What medium are you working in oils, acrylic, pastels etc.?

    2. Type of surface do you use watercolor paper, Illustration board etc.?

    3. What is the scale of your works?

    Thank You

    :D Some high dollar car guy should build your design here, the styling is way out there and full scale would be a winner. Great design work......

    CRUISER :cool:
     
  14. So as its early Friday morning and I just got in from work.....

    Awesome work so far....

    Cab, look forward to the show, lets hope I can make it...

    Ger....Awesome, just great, loving the monster...

    Pacheco, Jigger....Great work as always....

    Mojodaddy, up to your excellent standards as always, good to see stuff from you again...

    Here's a couple from me....then I'm off to bed...

  15. To answer your questions:
    1.) I'm working with a relatively new paint medium called "Watersoluable Oils"-They paint exactly like regular oils but they clean up with water and can be thinned out with water instead of harsh chemicals.
    2.)I build my paint surfaces out of masonite hardboard panels. They are primed in gesso to accept paint, etc. The panels are then cradled at the back with 2" boards mitre cut to create a backing frame.
    3.)The particular paintings shown here are roughly 11" x 14". I usually work in a larger scale of 24" x 36" but have recently moved up to 36" x 48". That's why I like building my surfaces out of harboard panel, it's easier to change sizes whenever you want, instead of messing around with stretching canvases. They're also a whole lot stronger than canvas.

    Hope that helps! I really appreciate all the compliments so far guys, makes me feel like I am going the right direction with my new work! Excellent start to the show, insane talent as always!~Mojo

    Thanks Mojo Watersoluable Oils that's a new one for me, I'll have to try them sometime. I've worked in an art store before and during my college days so I understand what your talking about. These new WS oils have to be great.......
    Now if some of the other artists would answer the same questions. Inquiring mind wants to know. Thanks

  18. 1. I literally work in whatever medium is handy. My finished pieces are often multi-media creations. I "Frankenstein" a LOT.

    2. ditto

    3. whatever is necessary to have my piece tell the story I want it to and give me the desired impact that I require.

    I try not to limit myself to only one medium. As a professional artist for the last 20 years, sure there's been certain mediums that I gravitate to in order to get the job done that the work requires. But I personally think that sticking to only "one way" of doing things, severely limits one's growth.

    [​IMG]

    Photochopped
    [​IMG]

    I did the whole body with Photoshop brush and than pasted some bits from other cars. The grill is from a 66 F100, the bumper is from a bel air (modified a bit) the mirror and the side badge are from a 53 F100. I took the rims and tires from a beetle (dont kill me xD)

    Hop you like it...I think it is Hamb friendly! :D

    Nice start to the FAS everyone!

    The water soluble oils sounds interesting.... I'll have to look into that. But I agree that painting on gesso'ed masonite is way better than canvas. I got away from it years ago beacuse they couldn't wrap the masonite around a drum scanner!

    Anyways, since none of my newer stuff is really available for public viewing yet, but I'll take last week's sketch theme and drag it out a bit longer!

    Some of these are just pencil & paper, others are 100% digital (Corel Painter). I'll put the finished work next to them where applicable as a comparison.

    This sketch is only about 2" wide on paper:
    [​IMG]
    And the final design:
    [​IMG]

    Again, about 2" wide pencil/paper:
    [​IMG]
    Which ended up like this:

    Flat Top Bob's car:
    [​IMG]
    And the shirt design:
    [​IMG]

    X-Sonic (digital sketch) & Invasion shirt:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    This digital sketch was the start of the Kustom Kings shirt:

    And just something cool from my sketchbook:

  21. Carguy88 - Great PhotoShop job, very well done!

    Cruiser - My monster drawing started 10 years ago as a pencil sketch on cheap Xerox-paper. I then inked it by hand using a fine brush and India ink on same paper. Several years later I scanned that black and white original into the computer and saved it as a digital file. Three weeks ago I took that file and added the colors in PhotoShop. The original size is about US Letter.

    Slide - Love your designs!
