I'm back! For a short period only (up until Jan 8th) I will be taking commissions for these handpainted canvas originals of whatever you want. They are done in the black and white two tone style that is very popular at the moment. Prints of these can cost from £15-30 on ebay, but these are handpainted and of whatever you want! Handpainted ones just look classier!

These will only cost you £30 including delivery! Check the bottom to see what kind of thing you can get!

Let me explain how it works. What will happen is, you send me a picture you want painting on a canvas (DJ-Tees is a great place to look for that style of pic) - it can be a normal photograph which I will transform into the black and white style image. I will then email you with a computerised version of what it will look like. If you like it, i then paint it for you. at this point I ask for a £5 deposit on these so people dont waste my time by asking me to paint and then not wanting it. If you like it, you pay the other £25 and I send it to you (price includes delivery) If you dont like it and I agree that it didnt go too well (not likely unless you request an extremely difficult picture that has like 1000 daleks in it) then I will refund your deposit, but if i think its fine but you want are just trying to waste my time, then I will post a picture on UG, let UG decide whether it looks like what it is supposed to, and if they agree it does then you wont get your £5 back, but if they agree with you that it doesnt quite look like what its supposed to then you get your fiver back (this is the fairest way to ensure you get what you want and i dont get ripped off!) I then send you the handpainted canvas and bobs your uncle!! I had a lot of happy customers on UG last time i didnt this, and if you look hard enough you can probably find the old thread with all the commissions on. Here are some pictures so save you the hassle though. Shame this thread no longer shows you pictures, you have to click on the links:

The ones like Buckethead and Mayer are the best I can do - they took a long time! so dont request pics that are infinitely more complicated than them, i dont have the time to paint them without charging you a small fortune! Dont hesitate to PM me with requests though, and ill do a digital mock up and tell you whether its possible. I personally believe that the ones such as Lenin and Sharpe look better because they are simpler - thats not me trying to get away with less work, i just genuinely believe that they are more effective and look smarter.

£30 delivered (for those not in EU im afraid its $100 shipped)

Thanks!

well yeah, i dont really expect americans to buy them because shipping costs too much. £30 isnt steep though
#5
How long would one of these take to be finished? Might have something in mind.
#7
Ooh excellent. I'll pm you a couple of pictures tonight or tomorrow if that's alright?
#9
oh right, you already sent them! I think the Jeff Buckley would look better, but the link to the original doesnt work. If you can get that sent to me ill tinker with it, get you a mock up done and we can go from there. I think it will look great!
#12
and the other one like this:


sorry there was a delay, been out all day and only able to use a computer which doesnt have the right software - and i dunno why the background is grey, im rubbish with photoshop. ill use black paint, dont worry!

Really like the first Jeff one, think I'll go for it. Paypal alright? I need to check if it's still set up, I'll do that tomorrow if I get a chance. I'm on the good traders list if you have any doubts.

No worries out all day myself, travelling back home from uni in Scotland.
#16
paypal is fine - why would i have any worries, your the one giving the money away! (im also in the good traders list)

Yeah i think that first Jeff one is awesome, ill enjoy doing that - ill pick up a canvas tomorrow morning and make a start. ill PM you payment details. thanks


And Jango - ill try find a cheaper courier but unfortunately overseas shipping is a pain for an item like that ill take a look though
#17
I'm giving my money away? Well thats....reassuring Looking forward to this, thanks!
#19
Hmm. interesting, any good at just guitars on their own?

I'm thinking maybe a Jazz bass, Les paul or musicman stingray maybe....
I don't have the money yet but i've wanted an artsy print of a nice guitar/bass for a while
#20
ive never done just a guitar but i dont see why I wouldnt be able to! The John Mayer and Buckethead pics have guitars (as does the A7X) but the quality of the guitars is compromised to maintain the quality of the focus - when converting them to black and white if you want the faces to look realistic then you often have to compromise parts of the guitar because the software cant do both... but if its just a guitar then it could look awesome - let me know what you might want doing and i can do a mock up for you - you dont have to commit to anything, ill just do a mock up so you can see what it would look like
#21
I'm not going to buy one, I don't have the money atm, but these are very beautiful. I just felt like I had to say that. Haha These look really nice
I'm Luke.
#26
ill have a play with the images when I get chance this evening I'll PM you the images, thanks

if i was to request one say next week, whens the earliest I could have the painting in my possession?

This is the smartest question ever posted in the pit. I commend you.


I asked about theory of reality and this is what someone said to me!
#32
Jimbleton - I package them very well. I have sent loads and loads (even to america) and none have broken. Alternatively we could meet at say morton park? Thats about the only place I know near darlington and i never mind going to morrisons... they do nice pies.

mario128 - If you told me what you wanted on say monday, then I'd like to think it could be in your possession by the friday, possibly thursday. Its hard to say really, it depends on the complexity of the painting and how many orders I get. I am just one guy working in his house so its hard if the orders back up... I do get many off friends who dont mind waiting (and shouldnt mind as they usually dont pay until I give it to them!) but turnaround is usually fairly quick. sorry if that was no help at all!

What are the limitations as far as detail goes?
Quote by AlanHB
Yeah well in special UG land chords = noob, scales = intermediate and modes = advanced. Most users are trying to finish the game on hard because then you get the trophies for noob and intermediate difficulties upon completion anyway.
#34
well considering they are two tone, as much detail as you can get before the picture is too crowded and no longer looks like it should. I cant emphasise enough that less is more with these though. Take a look at the ones i have already done - the Slash and Buckethead ones are about the detail limit im willing to go without having to charge more as it gets a lot more time consuming. those ones were bad enough!
#35
can't view some images at work for some reason...


basically I'm thinking of a Sam Totman with guitar one, I have like 8 or 9 gig of his pictures on my home PC, once I get there I'll find one

#38
mario128 - i have resent my mock up you requested, i hope you get it this time! If you dont have it now, then PM me your email address and ill email it to you. I seem to be receiving your messages fine, but I have no idea why that last one didnt get to you
