Here we are, with a new chop feature, this time it's our famous Streets Chop of the Month winner, DragonForce, which, proved himself worthy to advance to the nextlevel, which, on our website is the CarShow area.
We prepared a small feature, more like a Q/A, like you, our dearest readers, are used to. Let's find out the small details that were hidden behind this piece of art.
Q: What gave you inspiration for this project?
A: My biggest inspiration on this chop was brushing itself, I wanted to try myself, if I can do it.
I saw that nice base picture of Scirocco, just in right position and I started.
Before I even started, I had that general idea, how will I make it, the white/silver color and yellow-black color scheme. I think it turn out nicely on this particular chop.
Q: Brushing looks very neat, you think you can give some extra tips for our newly members?
A: Thing I learned from full-brushing techniqe is, you always need reference photo or inspirational photo to make good brush work. It is a lot easier to ''copy'' the reflections from original car photo instead of making it itself. And the other thing is searching for new background for chop. Find new background, put your base on it and then start brushing. Choppers indeed have diffrent chopping techniqes, this one is just a bit easier to start with and it gives you better results at the end.
Q: What can you tell us about the whole car theme, design, color, rims? Did you aimed for something concrete, or just let your mind roam free?
A: The general idea for Scirocco was to make barely-street-legal racing car with clean design. Firstly I wanted to make it in silver color, but in the process I changed my mind and decided for white, I think it fits better. Since this was racing car, I needed some racing rims so I decided for well known OZ rims with dark silver color and of course, huge yellow brake calipers included.
The inspiration for yellow stripes I got from Golf GTI, which has red ones, I just modified them a bit and they fit nicely with calipers. I included some black parts and that was it.
Q: Did it took you long enough to reach the finish line with the project?
A: Like I mentioned it 1. question, I tried myself in brushing, how much can I do in 1 or 2 days. It took me around 2 days to finish it, almost 90 % in first day. But since it was already 2 a.m. in the morning when I was on 90 %, I decided to finish it next day. But I am pleased with the result, it came out the way I wanted to.
