This is Darryl Hoss and he likes V8's, black, and mysterious clouds of smoke behind him.

I just wanted to paint a bogan panda with a mullet :U

cheers ATA, Alex, and Beck for their consultations!!

Never knew they were a common sight, but did all have mullets as well?
Thanks too!

Holden Ute?

Good guess!
think they only officially made a few old Holden Monaro Utes (Pontiac over your way) but I love them :]

If ever there were two Aussie cars I wanted here in the states; it's the Falcon XB and the Monaro Ute.
I know I'm not supposed to mix my Holdens and Fords, but I'm an American, and I can totally pretend that I'm stupid and never watch V8 Supercar... nascar can suck it.

Some guy in my neighborhood imported (or possibly built) a 2010 HSV Maloo. It looks rad, and makes pretty noises.

I am guessing he is driving a Holden Sport Ute. Those things are insane and I want one, but here in the us we never get the cool cars from other countries.

stucat Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
Yeah it's a Holden Monaro GTS UTE. Think you can get one of the older ones to restore brought over there.
Also thought Pontiac might have made a couple of the modern Maloo's as they share chassis with Holden and Vauxhall.

there was the Pontiac GTO a few years back that was a Holden platform. But I really like the Ute's because they come AWD. And sound like fun since they are fairly light.

JEEEEEEZZZUSSSSS! You getting SO hard out man! You makin huge steps up in realism, the perspective and distortion is so cool and your colouring's getting tighter each time, so awesome, and I think maybe it's your lighting that's nailing everything, like the tones and shadows and stuff are all super good, I hope you keep doing moer pics per year HAHA! :heart::heart:

Awr, this ended up looking real sweet! I remember seeing a quite recent version of this one via DB, but the touches you added afterwards really lift a few things - the smoke/fog in the bg really contrasts superbly against the dark shades of the car, and you lifted the value of the car a bit. I like the texture of the car, despite it being subtle.

You got the glare in the eye right. Still think you should've pushed the values of the arms darker in some areas, but I might be wrong on that.

Man, you school me.

:iconstucat:
stucat Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
The eyes came out great because of your help!
The arms were a lot lighter before and I did another values pass, the print came out pretty dark, but it's a bit brighter onscreen so that one could possibly be messed about with :0
Like before cheers for all your feed back on this and I think it helped pop this piece out :]

Hey man, I thought my comment I left on this went through!!

Stu, this piece is amazing. I'm noticing a lot of your usual touches that make this a really outstanding piece. The one that caught my attention first was the mirror containing a pretty vital piece of the story and in this case it's the cops parked behind Darryl. At first I thought it was a chase, but obviously by the way Darryl is posed, the speedometer needle reading zero, the cop's shadow on the car (and the shadow took a bit for me to find when I was analyzing your pic--nice touch!!), and certainly lack of motion blur all add up to give this a very creative story. You even got the cop's reflection on Darryl's sunglasses!

Love the wide angle lens perspective, is this something that you were experimenting with this time? As I don't think I've seen you do that sort of perspective before.

As usual, the textures are immaculate and the attention to detail is shockingly precise. I gotta say that the dashboard of this car really shows off how well you pay attention to detail. I can see the individual notches on the gauges and different patterns for the HVAC controls whereas many artists would happily simplify those pieces as the viewer wouldn't necessarily focus attention on those things. Shirt texture is fantastic and certainly nothing surprising after how well you painted Natilla's dress in your previous piece.

Love seeing you paint cars in your pictures and this piece is certainly no exception. Very creative character as well! Even if it's like a piece or two per year, I can tell you've spent a lot of time on these pieces and the wait is always worth it.

Ohh wow thank you so much for your massively huge comment! I can't imagine what you had lost on the previous one then :0
I think no one has looked more closely at this pic than you have checking out the bits and bobs I probably shouldn't of wasted my time doing, cheers for that :]

yeah this was something I've been to have a go at, and I think it really help add to this picture in particular, as the original was kinda flat.

Thanks again bol for your detailed comment!!! It's good to know that you have enjoyed checking out this piece, and I am trying to get more done per year, just all depends how much work takes out of me :U

No worries, my man! And dude, the details are what makes you unique. Totally shows your style and what kind of artist you are. I can look at your pics a ton and not get bored of them at all, it's always neat finding new details. For example, and this is sorta sad, I didn't see the jet in the sunglasses of Stu on the "Hood" piece for the longest time.

Cool, for some reason I thought the sketch started out as a wide angle look haha and that would have been pretty difficult to sketch/paint etc.!

Hey you're doing the pro stuff now!! Would be sweet to see your work go into production, bro. :]

:iconstucat:
stucat Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012
Ohh thanks, good to know that it kept you interested more than 10 seconds that I feel is probably the average :0
It can be a blessing and a curse at the same time all this detail, it comes out the way it does because I spend more time on it, but then that detail probably missed or unnecessary, so I have to be more selective in what I put my time into now.

I did go and have a look at a bunch of fish eye photos to see how things changed, so that helped a fair bit.

I too would like to see that happen one day :]
