A pair of swirled Jacksons....

Hi all,
Just a few pics of a pair of Jacksons that I've just swirled for someone - total opposites from each-other (one light, one dark). I've included a pic of the forearm contour of one because it's got a really nice corkscrew swirl. Sorry the pics aren't better but it was a horribly dark day when I took them so there was no ambient light Hopefully I'll get some final pics from the owner once he's re-assembled them,
Cheers,
Rich

Re: A pair of swirled Jacksons....

The dark one has a funny frog face on it

Both look cool,just seems more "right" on an Ibanez though
Love the colour combo on the dark one

i see it!

+1

sweet!

regards,

Andre....oops....i mean Bones (jk)

is the grayish part just the black thinned out? i really like how that one came out. the blue one came out very nice just not my colors. the direction of the swirl on the blue looks like you went pretty slowly pulling it out of the paint rather than a fluid smooth movement - just a little shaky but still looks very nice. it's cool the UK has a talented swirl artist of their own cheers!

The red one is "tits"...... very nice! One of the better swirls I think! It definitely has "depth"! Great work as usual.

You are by far the best swirl artist currently working, Rich. Awesome as usual.

Re: A pair of swirled Jacksons....

both my fave swirl colours!! love the evil looking red n black (in spite of a frog upping the niceness!!)
the colours on the blue one are simply beautiful aswell although the swirl pattern is definitely better on the red one!!
awesome work rich!

Re: A pair of swirled Jacksons....

actually maybe the frog doesnt make it less evil,

fatal poison in that thing!!
thought id investigate exotic frogs to see if one had the right colours
what do ya mean i have too much time on my hands!?
