Default Welcome to the Good Life,..... Kanye West themed shell

OK, so I get this project. And the project is crazy!. I havent even thought about doing this. I am originally from Chicago and as many of you who listen to rap may know. Kanye West is also from Chi Town. So before checking out the pictures if you can resist. please check out this Video, If you dont like rap... At least turn off the sound and look at the Video! I took 98% of this off a Music video and added the Kanye Graduation bear to the truck. Hope you like it....

My post was edited (by Mr. Lightfoot) because I can't have an opinion about Kanye West.

Thanks for the appreciation on the work,lol.
I didnt think when I did this shell that I would have a standing ovation. The images were all draw straight from the Video since they are not available on the net. It is a hard thing to do if you think about it since it takes alot of pausing and going back to draw and paint it. I know there are Kanye haters out there and thats all right. But I tried to capture the story of the Video onto the shell the best I could.

About the body, awesome work. If Mr. West isnt into RCs, he should take a look at that body. I think he just might get into it.

How much would it cost for you to make another one, but silver background? I think it would work out well for my application.
