F8F-2 BEARCAT _ preview


Only a few weeks ago I announced the all new FULLCOLOR Artist-Series and the first release 962-PF by LA based Concept Artist/Designer Patrick Faulwetter, who has worked on films such as the now playing JACK THE GIANT SLAYER, and GI JOE 2 as well as upcoming GODZILLA and upcoming TRANSFORMERS 4 !

The success of this first collabo has been a pure motivation – to go into ROUND 2.

Here we go, announcing the second design within this first Artist-Series selecting one of Patrick`s outstanding plane-air studies. The Image we have chosen was painted up in Reno(Nevada) during the Air-Race. He had done several paintings –every one nicer then the other! It was quite hard to select the one to print. Finally, this “RARE-BARE” painting won, regarding the strong silhouette within the painting and the fresh colors that could be used for the color-palette graphic-theme. I generated this element in addition to give all paintings within this series something in common- tying the different paintings together to a series. Plain type and T-Shirt title is F8F-2 BEARCAT.

These T-Shirts are numbered again XX/35pcs, strictly limited and guaranteed a 100% collectible item – simply, a must have!







TAXI_vehicle-FLATAU_webGot this concept with me for a while – but finally took the time to visualize it a little more detailed. More or less it is a public transport cable car Taxi for the more privileged society. Anyway, sooner or later I hope I can share a bit more of the time and story where this vehicle actually belongs too.

After the previous 962_LeMans sketch/rendering/illustration or whatever you want to categorize such – painting (as I prefer to call it) into – I felt I got a style I would like to start the Taxi visualisation. Something between a rough quick sketch and a clean studio set up. The main thing I added here was the play with depth of field, to set focus on elements that I wanted to read more. Quite handy thing as I could reduce the areas I had to paint – or even tend to overdue it( aka “paint it to death”). The best thing it saved a little time – so I could go out have a break and get some nice coffee :)

So this is what came out. Still a few corners I am not that happy with – but I guess thats a good sign! Think I will get back to that a little later.

I posted some larger images HERE in the ARCHIVE so you get a better impression also how loose it actually still is.
