The Hulk – Longboard Painting

As a quick background – my roommate freshman year of college bought a longboard and promptly broke her foot riding it. The initial design had green as a main color and it has purple wheels – therefore, we nicknamed it “The Hulk” because it broke her foot, and I repainted the bottom with the following design. These pictures follow the process I took in designing, sketching and painting it. Before these pictures I sanded the bottom and painted it the solid green color as seen below.
