Mustang with flames.. mmmm

* FIRST POST *

Here is my friends mustang that I painted a while ago.. I just finally got pictures of it today, because the yearbook staff was taking pictures of it for our senior yearbook. So i brough my camera and took some photo's of it myself. Not to bad for a 17 year old kid, who did all of this work for FREE.. Thats ok, my friend paid for all the supplies, so we called it even.

Flames...

PHOTOSHOP.... Thats 100% real.. I sware.. My photoshop work is limited to making smiley faces.. Its my own work.. all of it.. even the pinstriping.. and its definatly not the first flame job ive ever done... I've made lowrider bikes, and gopeds, and painted all of them with different things. Checkers, scallops, flames... I even airbrush a little bit.
My orange slowrider... made end of freshman year..

My first flame job was when I was a freshman in highschool I painted my moms chair.. Up from where I used to call home.. Soldotna, AK..


Some of my airbrushing...



pinstriping


I want to do this for a living.. So I try my hardest to make everything look as professional as I can.

I'd like to see somebody try to photoshop their closet doors like that..

No problem.. I kinda take it as a compliment in that you think that it must not have been done by a kid.. That makes me feel like I have what it takes.. I'll keep on going...

I had my first car shoot , and dont plan on letting it be my last. First my year book, next MAGIZINES..

all that stuff looks great but you know why it was mistaken for photoshop.....no dropshadows. what a difference it makes when you put a little highly reduced black in an airbrush and lightly go in under the flames or any of the graphics. adds a ton of depth and keeps people from thinkin its cheap vinyl....just a tip. if you want to look at some of my stuff here's a link.

there are about 9 pages or so. the first 2 or 3 are some real old stuff.

Ya, I've done them on other things that I have painted.. This one, I just left regular because we were using cheap paint, and my airbrushe's needle is way out of wack.. So, I'm replacing the needle.. But ya, That is true. I'll remember that from now on. thanks..

and your stuff. even the earlier pictures, are absolutly awsome... I'll be doing that some day here.. Just wait and see.

Congrats on the nice work. As for shadows, heck, either way looks good. They are simply two different effects, one isn't better than the other. It all depends on what effect you or the customer wants.

I am very impressed with your work, keep it up. I personally will paint like a mad man, with the best of them. But custom painting like that, I have tried but just can't get the hang of it. To do work like that "out of the box" at 17, you have my respect and I suspect you will be making a living doing it if you want to.


Just remember, art, like music is a hard field to break into. You need to really get a lot of stuff out here in the shows to get a name. Don't be afraid to toot your own horn! You have to market yourself as the best to be thought of as the best. I have seen a lot of so so guys go a long way with custom paint. And I have seen a few really great custom painters go no where because they don't go out there and promote themselves.

Don't be afraid to put that name of yours at the bottom of all your work!

that hits the nail right on the head!!! its all about getting your name out there and its not the easiest thing to do. it wasn't long ago when i was standing right where you are. i was just messing around with the stuff then i decided to push it and see if i could make it a business. i was completely self taught with no bodyshop or art expierence and was working about 50 hours at a regular job then would come home and work another 40 just to paint stuff for people for practicaly nothing. i think if i made a dollar an hour that was alot but atleast i was enjoying myself. i did that for about 2 years just to get my name and some product out there. as time went on it got more and more busy then i started doing some shows and started the website so people can see my work. it takes a big effort but if you practice and make yourself better and better you'll go somewhere with it. good luck, your on your way!!!
