    i brought in some stuff to an artist and he refused to do it, said it was too big and he didnt want to start on such a large piece especially that complicated.. i've known him for a while, i'm glad he was honest but it still sucks now i'm in search of someone to do it well :(

    i brought in the book with the art that i wanted done.

    [​IMG] as you can see its very detailed with lots of little lines. it can be done he just didn't want to bother with it.

    probably like it to end up something like this as far as the style goes.

    or worse, half a shitty ass job. just find someone more established who has more experience doing large work. I know where I live there are a lot of people who like doing large pieces. its guaranteed income for months and looks great in portfolios. maybe flip through some artists books and find one with lots of large pieces.

    Talk to Gunnar
    http://www.godsandmonstersart.com

    I'm not sure what shop he's working out of, but he's flying back to ohio to do a piece on a buddy of mine and the work is amazing... All he does anymore are large pieces.

    the guy i went to is amazing, his waitlist was 6 months long, but he is leaving the shop he is at so he stopped taking appointments. he has done some massive pieces (full chest/back/leg/etc) but he is at the point where he can be choosey about his work and just wasn't feeling like doing something that was as difficult as what i was proposing.. that and its not really his style.

    but hopefully i can get in with this guy gunnar.

    He's pricey that's all I know. He used to run a shop here in columbus called gods and monsters, his partner, Hoffa, is who did my leg. Last I heard, he's down doing some seminars and some guest spots in the tampa(i think) area. so he might not be coming back to cali for a few weeks.

    Like I said, he's working on a piece for a buddy of mine when he fly's back to ohio to visit his family... he got to see his updated portfolio and he said his stuff is 20x's better now than what he had posted on the site. He's getting more diverse and doing less of the creepy kid stuff that got him "famous" He's got a myspace page too... he might have more on there, I'm not sure.
