Art piece for the forum members



  • awsome Lia! you are great at capturing character, but the x-stream girl from planet Catwheel is still a ghost!
    so glad you got the time "off" to do this.
    ps the tiedye looks great



  • First off... sorry this took so long :(

    Long story short I've not been doing great so haven't been able to really get on with much. I have however been making sure I spent at least an hour every other day on this.

    Anyway enough of that since it's hardly the time or place to discuss that. Here you all are :)
    Click on the image to see the larger version that you can zoom in on (it's a big).

    Hopefully I didn't forget anything >.>

    .

    There is so much in this drawing I'd have to type an essay to go over everything.... so instead I'll let you all just zoom around and enjoy finding all the things I added in since there are numerous little nods, references and otherwise silly additions.

    Where is this located? Not a clue, I just made it up with lots of reference material for whatever I wanted to add in. Decided to add 3 notable FM crew to the artwork too, namely Kyle, Jack and Ted. Apologies to everyone else from the team, the tree could only be so big as I realised quite quickly >.>

    So there it is, I won't say anything more about it till you all get a good look for yourselves.
    If you spot anything you like, recognise or otherwise want to know more about a bit share a snippet of it as a reply, I'd love to talk about it :)

    If you would like something added feel free to give me a poke, I'd be happy to make additional tweaks c:

    .

    If you'd like it printed I can pop it on my redbuddle account and do a test print first to make sure all the colours come out okay since things look wildly different on print, especially dark areas which usually all just blend.
    Otherwise if you'd like to do it yourself feel free to download the full image off the google photos page. It should come out as a 7021x4967 pixel 20MB PNG, any smaller and you've got a low res version.

    Awesome! I love it! You're very talented (in many different ways apparently).

    Pepsi is for weirdos.



  • Welcome, glad you liked it :D

    Aha knew that was coming so I added some coke too ;)



  • @Lia Great addition throwing some of the FM crew in there. Is the paraglider the guy trying to land on a Onewheel? Is that the Captain himself showing how it’s done? Incredible work!



  • @HanahsDax Thanks :)
    Only felt right to add them, was a hard choice on which to go with.

    Got it in one, fun little nod to the guy trying to mount their board from several thousand feet in the sky (ref).
    The captain was a must especially to help break up the pond.



  • @Lia, that is soooo fantastic! I love the new additions and references! I was already scrolling/zooming all over before reading your comments. I laughed out loud seeing the OW Yeti! Who are the woodland critters at the treeline? One resembles your avatar, sorta?

    So sorry to hear you are pressing through a difficult time. Anything I can offer to help? (Do you need a prayer partner across the miles?)



  • "Stoke Hazard" on the police tape. LOL!
    Oh, the poor board that suffered that moment.



  • @HorsePlay Thankies :) Glad you're enjoying looking around the drawing.

    The yeti is such a silly creation, I love it. Very practical although I don't envy whoever pulled it up the tree.

    Those creatures over in the wooded area are some pony's that me and GF created a while back. Figured it would be cute to include them for funsies~

    Glad you spotted the stoke hazard, it was inspired by a recent puncture I had which plagued my rides for a few weeks.

    Many thanks for the offer, I'm slowly getting though stuff bit by bit :)



  • this is wonderful. i would've joined in, but i don't have any pix of me on my Pint, and i didn't want to hold up anything while i got one i liked. you are so talented!



  • @Franko Thanks :)

    If you want I can still add you, will just have to find a way to squeeze you in ;)
    I don't necessarily need a pic if that's an issue, a decent enough description should be enough. Managed to draw @stinkyface with a description, a few pics of their board and their thumb in one of the shots ;)



  • Nicely done Lia!



  • @blkwalnutgrwr Glad you liked it :)

    Awwwwww! Great editing on the video ... poor Whisper. (Would that be the board's name or just the tyre?)

    Sunflower is dealing with a slow leak these past few days. I think it tasted a cactus barb.



  • @HorsePlay Whisper is the name of the tyre by Hoosier.
    I named my board Slushy after the the rails reminded me of when I get a slush puppy and ask them to mix the red and blue flavours together.

    Sunflower is a cute name for your board, have you tried putting some slime in the tyre to help patch the leak?



  • @Lia and @HorsePlay -- Adding Armor-Dilloz Red sealant is like getting a new tire within a tire. Somewhere there's a video of Cory Boehne purposely puncturing and slashing a Vega and he cannot get it to leak air. Expensive, but it solves the problem -- without changing the tire.



  • @blkwalnutgrwr I might get some, cheap sealant did my vega fine (since it's indestructible) but for the thinner Whisper I might take a look. Wasn't sure if it was worth the price but from that alone it sounds great.

    For the larger holes I found a car puncture repair kit works great albeit so overkill



  • wow, sooo much fun in there, love the 'wheel murder scene, the coolerwheel, the statue of the captain is so fitting!! pacman made me lol! homage to QE2 and all our 3rd party friends on the wall graffiti was a great Idea.
    at 1st I thought Kyle was was throwing eggs at us!
    thank you for these efforts Lia, you are an amazing talent and it seems like the endeavor was good therapy.
    edit; I keep finding fun stuff so awesome, we need 6foot5guy on his pint at the water front



  • @b0ardski said in Art piece for the forum members:

    So happy you spotted that :)
    Had to give some of the 3rd party's a shout too since without them a lot of the boards in the piece would look very similar.

    at 1st I thought Kyle was was throwing eggs at us!

    XD that would have been a fun idea. I'm not too sure how Kyle would be since I've only ever seen him in the ad's and handful of interviews. I'd like to imagine he's a cool dude nonetheless like the rest of the guys and gals over at FM.

    So many little things, wanted to add more but at a certain point it'll get too busy, that being said if Franko decides to join in I might poke a few more things on there while I'm at it ;)

    we need 6foot5guy on his pint at the water front

    Not a bad idea, @SixFootFiveGuy would you like in on this too?



  • @Lia said in Art piece for the forum members:

    It was there before the cactus barb ... and I'm sure is working hard against the little invader. The leak is, after all, very slow at this point. (I lost 3lbs of pressure this week.)

    Funny thing: As you spotted the glass on the road ... I could smell the barb. We had just run a flat harrow over the front yard ... and I suspect we nicked a cactus in the process and pulled the random barb into the places where I ride. I recall catching a whiff and immediately thinking, "Uh-oh ...."

    'Slushy' for the 7/11 drink colors -- how fitting! :)

    Oh, ah! Thank you! I will look for it. I bet it would also be a great help to our riding mower tires which suffer badly in our yard. (Rough terrain, rough land.)
