Knight Rider artwork: Revival

Post by sarfraz » Thu Oct 01, 2009 4:57 am

Hey hey. I know I haven't been on the board very often lately. To be honest alot beens going on and its been an adventure of a 12 months (naff said!). One of the things that has kept me going is working on this artwork. Started back in October 2008, it was finished this morning. What makes it particularly special is that this was the first time I used acrylic paints, the first time I painted the Mustang and the first time I have surprised myself on how well its all come together.

A friend of mine asked me, when do you know its complete? the painting tells me when its complete was my answer. Since I've been taking photos along the way, its given me the opportunity to put together my very first youtube.....so be kind on the comments ;-)

...not sure I've tagged it correctly. Need some help to a youtube newbie! Guess where the music is from.

Anyway, guess what? I'll be flying to LA shortly so can someone tell me if Universal Studios have both Knight Riders' on DVD boxsets so that I can buy them there?

So without further ado, heres the painting itself, enjoy

A true work of art! It's sad Picasso isn't here to learn... :good:

I'm stunned. This is great work. I am especially impressed with the reflective look in the hood of the Mustang. Awesome!!!

Awesome! Very realistic! The details and reflections especially are very impressive and makes it look like it's a real photo :) The artwork progress video is very interesting too!

Thanks everyone, glad you all liked it. The reflections were a key aspect of getting this painting looking right. The other issue was trying to keep the cars looking black but still reflecting the surrounding blue and sand tones. Its harder to see in the photo but more visible on the painting itself, but reflections of the surrounding sand are hinted into the paint work of both cars.

I'm most impressed with the KI3T scanner and headlamps. Ironically they took the shortest amount of time to work on!

Surprised no one has picked up where the music is from.....or was that way tooooooo cryptic ;-)
