Title: Day of the Dead Skateboard
Post by: Dustyart on November 29, 2007, 12:57:53 PM
Hey Guys, I'm a comic book artist, trying to get my creator owned skateboards going. Check out my first board featuring a Day of the Dead Skull. Hope you all dig it.

bailgun: Thanks for the props on the graphic. Yah, I don't know too much about BP, but I'm just hoping that this can be my way to into designing skateboard graphics for a living. I don't know any other way to go about it.

Thanks RJM, glad you dig it!

Thanks iLLegitimate Child, I appreciate it. I wanted to keep it pretty simple, non-cluttered, but still have something pretty cool.

using boardpushier to try to break into the skate industry is like using cafepress to become a fashion designer. it won't work, and will probably end up hurting your credibility.

find some small legit companies and offer to do some work on spec for them, and see where that leads.

it helps if you skate. and rip. and are good to hang out with.

Nice.  What did you use to make the graphics?

Thanks for the advice bailgun. I appreciate it.

Thanks Dean. I used pencils and inks for the line art, and then I scanned it in and colored it using adobe photoshop.
