wow thats a lot of area you had to cover with a CS should have gotten the TH too

 

Lol....

 

That would be a lot w/ the CS....

But,

 

it was a TON with a size "0" Mack brush! :o

 

(I didn't use the airbrush...at all.) ;)

 

I've only been doing 'line training', and a few practice scribbles, w/ the Iwata.... :lol:

Trying to get mah hands back. :happy:

Werd.

 

That's why I quit... :mellow:

 

It got to the point, where everyone was a,

"I want this, but let's wait till next week", guy.... :rolleyes:

 

And, as we both know; "Next week", means never...

I actually live in Sacramento,Ca. :blush:

 

Kinda far....

 

But, if you wanna have something 'ship-able' painted, I'd totally paint it for ya!

:D

 

I'd do it for whatever shipping would cost.

I just need to build up my portfolio. ;)

Okay.. I am starting to think of what I would like.

 

I will make sure this piece is shown off too.. It will be going in a room in the basement with an 8ft rimless reef (when I can raise the funds to make it or have it built lol.. hoping by summer it will be finished and running)

 

my new reef club made front page news the other day :) and once i get the basement room finished i plan on getting the paper to do another story and maybe get them to take a picture of the room with the painting in it :) :)

 

No doubt will have some friends interested in pieces too :)

 

 

Okay .. Here is the room.. pre paint and new carpet ( this room used to be my basement screen printing shop

IMG_8968.jpg

 

 

here is the color scheme I plan on doing. Dark walls. nice pale blue behind the reef tank The white rectangles would be where i would like the art. I will measure the wall tomorrow and give an idea of the size the canvases would need to be.

 

i should be able to swing the funds to pay for the canvas if you want too :) The wife and I have a plowing business and we are getting hammered with snow. so we are actually on top of bills for once lol

 

here is the photoshop of the idea i have for the room

 

IMG_8966-1.jpg

 

 

I want your flavor in this piece. I will leave it up to you. I want it to be some sort of odd reef related scene. Preferably using a color similar to that on the adjacent wall ( the pale blue) (whatever the color is you use if you could paint be a small swatch so i can have homedepot match it for the paint on the adjacent wall it would be awesome.

 

 

 

here are some examples of things i like

 

I like odd stuff, not really too much of the hip hop urban feel

 

argentinagraffiti_0.jpg

 

I love this image I kinda like this style too. I love the shading and work on the fish

 

fish-graffiti.jpg

 

I love the dramatic coloration and contrast of this image

 

Graffiti_Queens_01.jpg

 

 

 

idk if that sorta points you in the direction i am looking for.. but the weirder the better and popping colors. using oranges, reds, yellows.. etc bright colors to contrast the blue you end up using. I will probably use those colors to accent the room.

 

 

I am all about continuity in a room :)

 

 

here are a couple pics of our dining room we just finished (everything we either got on craigslist or made ourselves)

I always put something odd in every room.. this room got the crow. lol

 

I love the style of the cherry image. colors are great and it really pops.

 

 

also here is a picture i took from one of my favorite tanks i had when i was younger might be able to use that in there somwhere :)

OMFG! omgomgomg

 

You totally have my style! :o

I can't wait to do these pieces...

 

I figure a 3 canvas breakdown, would look sweet.

Lot's of pop in the colors, and patterns.

 

This piece will definitely be one of a kind. :happy:

and I love the juxtoposition of the crow in the stable setting.

Looks so real....

 

I love the "street-art" style of the 'walking fish'....

I used to do ALOT of Graffiti. Then, gradually moved toward StreetArt.

 

The 2nd fish, the spraypainted one, is very much my style, when it comes to faces.

I looooove the huge eyes/mouth style, mixed w/ the sweeping curves.

 

I love art....

 

and your dining room is SICK!

Frags would be cool, but thats a LONG trip. :o

Just let people see the work, and take a few pictures for me.... that's all I ask. ;)

shoot me a couple of examples, of what you want the owl painting to feel like.

I have a few Ideas already.... I like owls.

I wish I had the money to pay for one! You do great work!

 

I just got two projects, but if you want to be 3rd in line...

I'll do somethin' for ya. ;)

 

If it's something small-ish, I could do it soon.

Keep in mind I can paint on ANYTHING.

*canvas, metal, glass, plastic, rock, wood, paper, etc.

 

I also airbrush T-shirts, and everything else. omgomgomg

I also run a toyota yaris club and know people would love custom painted hoods and such. I can get you in contact with a guy that has a shop in cali who runs a compact car club that would easily be able to get you work too :)

Hmmm small would be good and fish related would be good so I'll think about it and let you know.

 

I don"t want to get ahead of anyone else so it might be a while.

That would be SICK!

 

I've been meaning to head out that way, for a vacation of sorts.

Maybe we can cooridinate and get 'er done... :happy:

 

I'd love to talk to a shop, after I get my chops back up.... Gotta get the rust out, ya know?

But, I would love to be able to put paint on cars again!

 

Nothing better than watching your work drive out, into the world. :D

camo-yaris.jpg

 

i would love this in blue urban camo with street art on it ... probably more artsy with bright colors but the camo breaking out from underneath the design.. like it looks like it was ripped and showing beneath.. that would be sick

 

lol what would something like that cost? prolly take me a couple years to save for a job like that

At an actual paintshop?

a few grand.

 

From me?

Cost+200. (and you have to come up w/ a sterile space.)

 

Cost would fully depend on what kind of paint you wanna use.

It could be $400, or $4,000 depending on what brand you use.

I could grab great paint from the guy I know cheap enough :) well give me a good heads up and i'l start saving :) I could easily borrow my neighbors garage and poly tent it :)
