I'll kick off the flying eyeball Friday.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Great tribute Bomonster!
I always love seeing all the awesome artwork you guys do. Really really cool stuff.
Glad to see we're all still here... happy end of the world and
Merry Christmas !!
Thanks for this tribute!
Hi folks, long time ago...
I finished it yesterday
Fantastic start, people.
jdustu - loving 'Tough Nut'.
A friend asked me to paint a hot rod mural on a bedroom wall for his 13 year old son DJ.
To begin with, he couldn't decide what to have, so I showed him some of my artwork & he chose a '32 Roadster with a traditional Hot Rod paint job of black with flames & an exposed, fully-chromed & supercharged engine, parked in front of another iconic symbol of the American car culture, a drive in diner, complete with neon signs.
Reaching a decision wasn't easy, bearing in mind that whatever I put on that wall was there to stay & stand the test of human nature as far as personal taste was concerned.
Working on something this big is a totally different ball game to desktop stuff. I discussed with him the subject of adding detail & had to explain that being this big, it would be lost since in order to get the full effect, it had to be viewed from atleast 10 feet away.
Anyway, here is the progress from beginning to end & to give you some idea of the scale of the thing, one of the pics shows my 3-step aluminium ladder leaning against the wall with a bottle of poster paint on top.
The guy loves it & his boy is over the moon, too.
Hey Wild Willy, looks like we have a lil' longroof section. Snow too...Bomonster, that's cool..
Josh, 'tough' is as cool as..
Eye-balls schmy-balls! Same ol' ad-nauseum museum as the re-cycled Rat Finks! I know we all derive from others to some extent. Does that mean we include the blatant? The banal?
Perhaps I'm pedantic. Perhaps this is a storm in a teacup. Or WW3.
Ed & Dutch R.I.P.. Leave their art- with those chosen (by the departed). Please make your own.
Merry Christmas y'all!
Great work guys. Bomonster, what can we say? Thanks for the tribute.
Love it Rubens!
Some old ones from me....
There are more in the theme...but that is enough for now....
Good show so far.
Outstanding work Bob... You master at this type of art... All the Best...
Santa's New Hot Rod...
The sleigh is a 3D model I created in Sketchup, the landscape is also 3D created it in Vue Complete ver 9, the trees, deer & Santa were digitally painted in ArtRage Studio Pro ver 3. Final image was also composited in ArtRage with some color correction and resizing done in Photoshop Elements 9 & Topaz Adjust ver 4 (Photoshop plugin)...
Merry Christmas to ALL....
We went with the Flying Eye because a fashion house has been threatening a member and regular FAS contributor via Farcebook.
Bubbletop Silhoette Jag
From my film camera. To all my friends here on the HAMB...Merry Christmas! I hope you are able to be with the ones you love. Thanks guys and gals.
Thank you Slim Pickens.
Britt8M, diggin' the red coupe- beast! Merry Christmas!
Neo Dutch- Could it be that the 'Fashion house' has legal trademark rights to the symbol?
Off to sleep now- hopefully world still here tomorrow..
