My Custom Lid + Lids I do for clients (Am starting to)

I bought a $40 HJC helmet at a local junk yard to use for stunting and even though it was perfect in condition I wanted something more fun so I decided to design it on my own. Here is the finished product. Around 15 hours of work.






And here are a couple shots of a new lid I am doing for a local rider.

The guy wanted graffiti and samurai. He rides a zx6r-636. I figured I would add that instead of random words and names? :P

I took this photo for color reference to match the horseman on the otherside best that I could but I figured I could post this up to show you guys progress on the current helmet I am working on.

I also made a stencil of a design also attached that I used to make the quick outline with and then went in to detail individually.

I am charging $350 as a base price. The more complex the more it will cost of course. We can work out the details though.

How simple is something super simple?

That price I set forth as a base price because it not only includes the drawing aspect but all the labor, tools, time, and everything else that is needed in creating a design.

Re: My Custom Lid + Lids I do for clients (Am starting to)

Okay I wanted to post an update on the current helmet I am almost done with. I just finished a 10+ hour sit down on this helmet, started work at 9pm now it's about 8am heh.

All in all I think there has been over 24 hours total in this helmet as the horses took so long! I need probably 2-3 more hours to re-ink places and add fine details in a lot of the space but I wanted to post what I spent tonight doing. I am probably 85% done with this helmet then moving on to another one.


Also side note I am working on a website www.artlids.com which should be up soon enough with complete information on my regulations and prices and everything else.

Now here are some crappy shots (of course I will take good ones once the helmet is 100% done)

Re: My Custom Lid + Lids I do for clients (Am starting to)

I just got home from the clear coat painters shop. Man is that first helmet turning out amazing! I can't wait to show you guys the quality of the clear coat and the helmet itself when it will be finished. So far he did a few layers of clear and is in the process of adding an orange flakes.

Also gave him the Samurai helmet which I finished today. Will post pics in a couple of days once I get the helmets back. In the meanwhile I got a new helmet form the guy to practice on! :D

Re: My Custom Lid + Lids I do for clients (Am starting to)

I recently took the two helmets I have done to my local guy to get them professionally clearcoated and the guy was so impressed he let me have one of his helmets so I can just have fun with a design. Originally I was going to do a maggot/worm/deform skull type design but decided to do a medusa all over print. In other words her face on the back and snacks wrapped all around the helmet. Here is the sketch.

Re: My Custom Lid + Lids I do for clients (Am starting to)

incredible work bro.i paint cars and bikes,mostly insurance jobs,but i have done a lot of custom body work and a ton of custom paint. i can SO appreciate the detail you put into your work.
and guys 350$ for on of these juys jobs is a great price,just figure if he would charge by the hour.i charge 4 grand just to paint a car and it only takes 16 hours labor,and 48 hours flash time.
i will be gettin ahold of u to do my lid the winter bro. keep up the dedication.

Hey Monkey I might be willing, of course it seems like a ton of work but we can definitely talk about it and see what we can figure out to do.

Well from the top of my mind with the idea I imagine that would work with the greek gods theme I am thinking $400.


I live in Meridian, ID


Also as far as logos go, that one is digital and I do work digitally as that is my job this helmet thing is a side hobby I am getting into. So Yes I would be able to do a logo for you and your dog website or w/e it is you need it for.
