I would imagine it would cost as much as the artists talents. If I were as good with the gun as I am w/the mouse I'd charge a good amount ($1-3k).

Your best bet would be to find someone with good talent that is trying to get noticed. You can both work out a deal.

no doubt.....it is so much easier with a mouse. i have an airbrush and a compressor but i found it very difficult and time consuming......also the "undo" process is much more difficult than a simple "ctrl-z." so therefore my "medium" changed from a real airbrush to a mouse.


but that is a good suggestion John.......thanks.

I want to see your idea MagicHallucinations.
Please post it.

I'm thinking about getting some airbrushing done myself, something that will cover the hood and flow throughout
the whole car. It will be an H.R.Giger artwork.

if you go to customairbrush.com i think is the website, she does awesome custom air brushing. She quoted me 2k to do my door panels, and dash pieces with some sort of cougar theme.

It all depends on who is doing it. ALSO depends what kind of paint they use. To remake my hood from the same guy that did it would cost someone around $2,500. That is just a hood. Talk to who you are looking at doing it and ask questions. Someone that knows there stuff should impress you with there knowledge. Also don't just check out just one place. Many airbrush company don't really advertise for cars, they do mostly bikes. But check them out too. Wouldn't be a bad idea to call a local Harley shop or something and ask about it.

so mine would cost around 3g's or more.......since it doesn't cover the whole car but it is on both sides.

i'll just have to wait for my price from Hazen.

I think I may forgo my "giger concept" and just get COUGAR
"brushed on" in some phat font on the rear.

My Giger concept was to have "lil" the painting he did for ELP-Brain Salad Surgery, sprayed
on the hood and have her hair/dreads, the biomechanical cables come back throughout the
whole car.

I'll have to get some quotes as well

I attached a pic of lil.
There are actually 2 pics of her, one with the album closed with the biomechanical sarcophagus around her
and the open cover closed eyes-eternity shot.
