Title: All the Sad Stories Begin With a Curse
Name: Alister Lockhart
Country: Australia
Software: Painter, Photoshop

This piece was done for a skateboard deck as part of a local exhibition here in Melbourne. It started out as a pic of, well, whatever, to be honest, and then as it progressed it took on a more lofty pious ideal. Something to do with women in religion. Anyway, ain't perfect (you can't half tell it's digital), but some of the rendering is nice, I think.

That is awesome man! I bet it will look great on a deck. Are you screen printing the decks yourself?

That is going to look so cool on the deck, :thumbsup: I would love to see a photo of the deck when you get it printed.

There is a site called Board Pusher where you can upload an image and get it printed on a skate deck. I tried it and the image comes out very good, but the quality of the board is extremely poor, if you want to actually ride it which I did. I would love to design more decks if I could find some ware with higher quality boards. :sad:

Beautiful! And, the title speaks volumes! I think it gets a 5!

Here's a photo from the exhibition.

The finish came out great BUT unfortunately (because I gave the printers too much credit) I didn't provide adequate registration instuctions- as you can see they assumed that I would want the whole halo on the female character's head to be in-shot, so they moved it right so that the darkened bars at the edge are now uneven. It didn't sell. You can tell how happy I am in the shot.
But, I plan to get a second printed, with the correct registration.

Anyway, if you like this design, contact Armourdillo (

I liked the ligth effects and the composition, and particularly the tatoo in her back. You're technique is very good, it is an excellent work :thumbsup:

This is very cool, it looks great on the photo ^^ I think that the colors could have interacted a bit more, otherwise it's very lovely :)
