Artists are a fickled bunch.......... this guys prices are astronomical

You pay for the body (125) and the paint job which is sealed off with a varnish......
To paint the hood of a MT truck with 1 mural & to paint the rest of the truck...... 500 euros[X(]($600U.S.)

Makes my $125 for a complete flame job on a MB/MT look like a steal......

Nice work, but definitely NOT worth $600

I've got an AB artist doing a special flame and body painting on my MT for $20.00(TWENTY DOLLARS). Walked into his shop the other day and explained that I was inquiring about the price to do the body. Brought the MT body back the next day to show him since he never saw the bigger bodies and has never painted an RC body at all. Guy used to have a store in one of the malls but moved out due to the HIGH rent and is also a former art teacher and does custom auto detailing on the weekends when he does not have his children. Don't know if he could do a paint job like Hellya's on a small body but I know he will not do nudity. Will see how this body comes out before making a decision to get another body and give him freedom on what he would/could do as far as a mural.

Its art.....................
Yes it is art, but people in America, including me, are very immature. We dont see things in the ways that they should be seen.

As my school art teacher says, nude is natural.

creative activity (writing or pictures or films etc.) of no literary or artistic value other than to stimulate sexual desire.

Maybe its just me but I think it has artistic value. That is an amazing paint job, I couldn't pay that kind of coin myself. Just my 2 cents.

That the beauty of art, its worth whatever someone will pay for it

When Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa he had no idea it would be priceless one day

Looks alot better than the normal stenciled flames or flags for a show piece very nice

FGMyzer, That it is. I would like to see a video with a stop watch running of the body being painted just to see how long it took him to do the castle in the clouds one. ALL of the bodies are nice but I'll stick to flames and easier stuff like in the new issue of Air Brush. Hate getting this issue. Got too many ideas that I would like to try on lexan. Even had to go and get another airbrush and some green pads for a few trials on large lexan sheets before making any attempt to do a body.

That's the f'd up thing about the USA and their "moral majority".

Those religious idiots say that if a 9 year old boy sees a naked breast (the thing that fed him as a baby) it's horribly bad and will turn him into a deviant criminal.

BUT letting him see a woman get graphically shot in the breasts with blood and gore on an action TV show is just fine.

Those morons can't be consistent.
