Default FireBox with truefire attempt

This is the machine I put together for my little bro in Fla.
Originally this was to be a Crysis Mod using the Antec Ninehundred.
I got carried away with some truefire effects.
I took out everything from another machine to install in this one.
Everything is now working great, I'll ship it off maybe in a week, He is a Daytona NASCAR fan, So I'm thinking of adding the Daytona 500 logo on the right side.....maybe not....dunno

I used Auto Air Color, next time I'll use some House Of Kolor ( HOK )
here are some shots......

i had some artists tell me to put that same design onto canvas....
And to put an 8 grand price tag...of which I would get only 4, at a galery in Atlanta.
They said people would go nuts for something different like this....
I'll be on vacation this month and just may do some more painting.

Thanks,
It has to be in oil paint, which is not that hard to do, just thin down the oil pigment and spray away.
These art nuts would almost buy anything around here....lol
I have vacation coming up on the 13th for 9 days....I may just airbrush a few for a new car....lol
Another thing I have been thinking is temp tattos.
I dont really like templates for airbrushing, but put up a stand at some special event going on nearby and pull in the USD.

Default True Fire Painting

Got the supplies last week.
A 30" X 40" canvas, oil paints, thinner and some mixing bottles.
I'll take some photos of the process, but where to post, as this is in the modding area.
Weather permitting, have to paint outside for this
I'm on vacation for a week now and may be up to anything.....lol
