Tag Archives: Skateboard
It’s been way too long since I have posted on this site, but in my defense I have been super busy as of late. I plan to do an illustration dump on here pretty soon(with all the things I have been working on), but in the meantime I wanted to post something that I am super proud of.
It is a skateboard with our Family name on it! I couldn’t find my camera cord to hook up to the computer so I will have to settle with posting these less than stelar iPhone pics.
My parents had a wooden plaque in our house when I was growing up. It had our family name on it. I always loved the thing and wanted to make something similar yet different for my family/home.
I used the company Boardpusher to print up the board. I am very happy with the quality of work that they turn out.
This weeks topic for IF is Shades. I kept it simple and clean for this weeks illustration. I made this digitally but I might turn it into a stencil as well, I think it would work real nice as a stencil.
>A few new things I did in photoshop. The first is Sid Vicious as a zombie w/ two different color backgrounds, it’s titled “Punks Undead”. I also painted this (less green) on a skateboard I had laying around…
I really like the way this one turned out, even though he looks much more like a zombie on the digital painting that I did. The texture in the background on the skateboard turned out really nice, it’s a shame you can’t get a really good feel for what it looks like with just a picture.
Next is something I did over the past 2 days, it’s a painting I did using photoshop. I have a love for the film “The Big Lebowksi” as I’m sure a lot of other people do as well. I posted a question on facebook asking what I should paint using my new Wacom tablet and one of the responses was “THE DUDE!” so I did, I really enjoyed painting this, and now I’m going to go watch the movie for the hundredth time.
