Chevrolet De Muerte by rawjawbone Chevrolet De Muerte by rawjawbone
:skull::skull:"Chevrolet of Death":skull::skull:
Back to my HotRod/Classic Car series only a little darker this time. Had this in my head for awhile now. I wanted to do a skull piece but I needed to do an auto piece for my upcoming show. So as much as I liked color, I wanted to see if I was just as good at some B&W.

So with the same technique I used with T's Beetle and Prowler from Oaxaca, I stamped in the background while painting the car and skull, working into it with layers of acrylics. Sticking with black, white and several other shades of nuetral grey. I used some spare colors here and there. And I really like the results especially in the not-quite black color of the car. For some reason I really dig the faded grey on black =D

So basically 24x18 acrylic
here's a shot of the underpainting [link]

1/7/2011
AND NOW ITS SOLD!!!

that's right, someone bought this black beauty at a restaurant where I was hanging it [link] . First night too. Money in the bank, yo. Of course I still got prints for anyone still interested. And if you wanna buy some paintings, gimme a holla, cause they're literally flying off the walls. :horns:$$$

I did a pencil sketch, and then just painted over it with layers and layers of acrylic.

Very nice proportion and symmetry on the car. :)

Personally, I don't like the jewels in the skeleton's head too much. Dunno why; maybe too much contrast for my liking. They seem too crowded, too.
