Rat Rod

Monday morning I did a one hour speed sketch of a rat rod for the Mudbrick guys (@pixelfader on twitter) and since I love anything vintage (and ratrods are cool) I decided to add a few more hours of studio time and take it one step further and paint a more detailed version of the car.

What is a rat rod? it's basically an unfinished exaggeration of the hot rods of the 40's and 50's with just bare essentials to get from point A to point B. I've seen a few nicely done with immaculate interiors and new engines/drive trains. I especially like the rustic, vintage look of the untouched rusted bodies of them.
