Devil’s Ride Step by Step Tutorial


Devil's Ride Airbrush Tutorial by Richard MarkhamStep 1

I first spray a light coating of Auto Air’s Semi-Opaque Brite White. This is so my pencil lines will show up when I transfer the image onto the car door.

With the car already in the spray booth, covered and prepped for paint, I realized I wasn’t going to be able to project the image with an opaque projector directly onto the car, so I projected it onto some large paper I found at the shop. I then continued to scribble on the backside of the artwork, creating a homemade carbon paper. This allowed me to retrace the front artwork, applying enough pressure to transfer the carbon onto the door.

Once I had the pencil image on the car, I began to build up the main character (devil) with the same mixture of white so he would be brighter when I was finished. In this stage, I am not focused on creating any detail; therefore I am just quickly fogging in the image.

Now with a mixture of 80% Transparent Violet and 20% Semi-Opaque Black, I begin to outline, shadow, and create detail to the demon. 80-90% of the detail of the character is created in this step.

In my system of painting murals, I use a very small percentage of opaques and mostly use all transparent colors. So, in the next stage I lay my colors of the beast. Most of him will be the Auto Air Red Oxide formulated for my Real Fire system. This will be followed by the Transparent Yellow in random key areas.

Once I have laid all the Transparent Red Oxide and Transparent Yellow throughout the demon, I then cover him with clear contact paper. This is what I have always used in place of frisket film. I find it is much cheaper and it has always worked just as well.

Now that the guardian of the deep is covered I begin to layout my Real Fire all around him and create his toasty warm surroundings, I do this using my Real Fire Stencils.

Once I have laid out all my initial flame work, I coat over my flames with the same Red Oxide I used to coat the demon. When applying this color you want to work it on in layers until you reach the full potential of the color. I concentrate on mostly going around the outer edges and blending the fire into the black background. This leaves the light area toward the hotter center of the flame.

I now add the Transparent Yellow over the remaining white and blend it into my red oxide areas. Also, in these light areas, I add more flame licks using my flame stencils and color them yellow as well.

Once the fiery inferno is finished, I carefully remove the clear contact masking. (used to line your home shelves in your cabinets. Found at a hardware store or large department store)

I then (using white) add more flame work and highlights to the beast blending him into his fiery surroundings.

 

 
Step 12

I then wrap it up by covering all the new detail with a nice generous amount of Transparent yellow. This really makes him pop!
