This is what I do.

And I'm pretty good at it. No friskets. No preliminary sketching on the paint surface. I just go in and paint freehand. And I'm relatively fast at it. (The "leopard" took about 4 hours.)

Actually, I did two of them that day...this is the other one.

2' by 3' display pieces, painted on sheet metal in automotive basecoat/clear coat.
The images were adapted directly from photographs.

I paint a lot of goalmasks and helmets. I sometimes wonder a little about hockey players. I really wonder about about goalies. Who in their right mind would pay to put artwork on something that you shoot 90mph frozen pieces of rubber at?
