Was not a Monster Garage show
It may have been that mike lavalee mentioned above (sound vaguely familiar) but not sure

This was a show spotlighting the painter and he went thru the process.
Took about a 34 Ford Business Coupe that a man had JUST bought, sanded the clear off, and painted fire all over it.

Pretty cool watching him do that---wish I could remember who it was and the name of the show.

The show was Rides on TLC and he was painting a 30's Ford Sedan.
I dont know wether or not this car was painted by him but when I saw that car, my first thoughts were of the show and him painting a black sedan in the paintbooth.

He has done jobs, for Rides, Overhaulin and Monster Garage. I'm surprised the guys at OCC havent had him paint a bike for them...

These flames are done free-hand with an airbrush, right? Does he build up the image, one color at a time, or does he do it like someone painting on canvas, switching colors often and working a little bit here and there?

The guy is amazing. If I remember right he starts of with one color at a time until the basic structure is there, and then he started from the front of the flame making it look more and more real. He uses and airbrush, and a simple piece of cardboard with some shapes like round curves, half circles etc. cut into the edges of it. He then works his way back until the flame is finished.
He's amazing

Yea it is pretty awesome. When they were first talking about adding this section, "Hot Rod Art", to the forum I thought that that's what they were talking about. People coming in here and discussing and sharing the art that is actually on hot rods. The airbrushing and pinstriping and all. NOT Photoshop. Hell I can Photoshop, but I can't paint flames like that!

I think you mean "photochop", as Photoshop is a trademark for a bloated, over-hyped, very expensive computer program rented by Adobe.

It's a lot cheaper to work out designs on the computer rather than with today's paints.

But you can't get it to look right in Photoshop. I've got ideas but they look like ***** in Photoshop. I can't get it in there because I can't do it for real. And the tools in Photoshop don't act like the ones in our shops.

If you had a junky tool that kept messing up your work, would you hang on to it and continue complaining about the crappy job it does? IMO, Photoshop sucks. If that was the only computer painting + image editing tool available, I'd go back to crayons. Some people like it.

The point isn't that computer image editing software emulates a body shop; the point is that you can work out designs, colors, modifications, etc., on the computer without blowing a few hundreds or thousands of dollars on a mess in your garage.

As for the forum, it contains lots of photochops and photos. It doesn't seem to be limited to just 'virtual' or just real.

But the thing is I still can't get the wagon the same color as the Mustang, without it looking bad.

After receiving a complaint that the white part of the flames looked "scratchy", I airbrushed them some more. I also radiused the rear wheel opening, but can't decide if it looks better than the factory squared off looking opening or not.

I think that with this paint job the radiused rear wells look great, better then the originals. If you were going for a tail dragger look then the originals would be the way to go.

Thanks home brew. I want to keep it level and I sure don't want the fender skirts going back on it. Just stared at both images so long I couldn't decide any more.

It was accidental, but that silvery splotch makes me wonder if a two-tone of black and silver might work with those flames.

BTW, attached is the fire I started those flames with. It was a piece of a photo of a brush fire. (Just in case anybody can make use of it, I took the photo and can safely say that this image may be copied and used for any purpose).

I always wondered how you came up with that image for flames. Now I know!
