This past August I had the opportunity to stretch outside my comfort zone and paint a longboard for my daughter Aroon! I've never done anything like this before, but now that I have I'm so glad I did! It was a challenge and I loved the colors and idea Aroon had for the board, a bright coral octopus with gleaming green eyes. The board was first custom made and shaped by Peli Surboards out of Cocoa, FL and he custom painted the Tiffany Blue background and primed ready for me to add the octopus.
The amount of detail was much more than I had anticipated with the octopus, but I'm so happy with the way it turned out, and so is Aroon! She's used it a couple of times and loves the board and custom paint job, always great to have a happy customer :) You can see the entire process below with work in progress shots of the custom painting.
