I decided to dress up my trailer that I use to deliever projects or work out of for murals....
Here is the rough design:


I'm doing all my design work in Vectric Aspire 4.0...which has been a phenominal tool.

Here's some paint and rust added:

The artwork on the trailer has taken on a life of it's own. It's like a rolling billboard.....very cool! You can continue to add more and more to it, good job.:eek:

I have come back to this piece 3 times now... I really love this piece. FANTASTIC. It really has that 1920's carnival look. The rocket and gauges remind me of the movie Zathura. I am truly envious of your talent.

Thanks all!
I have plenty more to add...lots of "victorian" decorative stuff. The dimensional pieces have just been the start. I have some large events this summer and want to get it completed pretty soon. It's been a great deal of fun.

You may want to jazz it up too much to make it a target for thieves or vandals, although i'd like to see what other crazy designs come out of your head!:eek:

I got inspired and made a moon (www.joesboats.com/sb/FantasticalMoon.zip) in the style of your painting. It was fun to make.

:) Enjoy I release this creative work to the community. Enjoy.

Made some progress today....Still more to do on the back and front...and I guess the sides too. :)

you need to fill one side with gears that spin in the wind. I just hope no one steals your cool creation! Keep at it.:D
