Terminal 6 Turmoil (Action Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Terminal 6 Turmoil (Action Painting)
Here's my latest painting as well as the latest addition to the Dramatic 70s/80s Painting collection that I've been producing recently.  I've titled it "Terminal 6 Turmoil", and created a fast paced action foot chase shot of a heated altercation involving a briefcase full of money unfolding in the loading zone of Los Angeles International Airport in the year 1979.  I've left it open ended so that you can construct a whole narrative out of the Imagery here, so go ahead and do so.  Much of the inspiration was extracted from movies like Bullitt, The Seven Ups, The French Connection, etc as I tried to really grasp an understanding of artificial lighting that would be common in a setting like this.  Anyway, all Fast Lane Illustration artwork by Ryan Sardachuk.

Surrounded (Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Surrounded (Painting)
Here's My Latest Painting, as well as the latest addition to the Dramatic 70s/80s Painting collection that I've been producing this month.  I've titled it "Surrounded".  I took a different approach to this piece by making a portrait film still style from an interior view being Illuminated from the exterior by an unknown light source.  I've left it open ended so that you can construct a whole narrative out of the Imagery here, so go ahead and do so.  Much of the inspiration for this was extracted from those films back then that relied and put more emphasis on lighting because of the lack of special effects at the time.  Perhaps it even evokes something film noire related.  Ive made the shadows of the blinds very distinctly projected onto the skin to discreetly suggest a jailbird prison outfit.

Out For Blood (Painting)
Here's My Latest Painting, as well as the latest addition to the Dramatic 70s/80s Painting collection that I've been producing this month.  I've titled it "Out For Blood", and positioned the viewer underneath of a vehicle as a shady figure walks by.  I've left it open ended so that you can construct a whole narrative out of the Imagery here, so go ahead and do so.  Much of the inspiration was extracted from movies like The Seven Ups, The French Connection, etc as I tried to yet again encapsulate the dicy atmosphere of 1970s NYC, which is an incredibly suitable setting this scene.  Anyway, all Fast Lane Illustration artwork by Ryan Sardachuk.

Against The Grain (Car Chase Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Against The Grain (Car Chase Painting)
Here's my latest painting titled "Against The Grain".  
The Year: 1984
Setting: Santa Ana Freeway approaching downtown Los Angeles.  
This painting was heavily inspired by the Movie "To Live and Die in L.A." but I wanted to have my own take on movies like that.  I decided to depict the getaway car as a 1977 Ford Thunderbird since it's a large 1970s American coupe, a type of car that is a staple to action films at the time.  Within this scene, I wanted to evoke one of those world famous car chase cliches as I often do in my work.  Today the cliche I chose was to have the getaway car swerving into oncoming traffic as an effort to lose the cops.  I experimented with certain blurring effects in this painting to help emphasize that motion as well as an "over the shoulder" shot of the Police car on the right hand side.  And the cherry on top is all the traffic swerving out of the way in an effort to avoid a potential head on collision.  Making this painting was challenging, because there wasn't a whole lot of source material of the Los Angles Downtown Skyline in the 1980s, especially from the angle I wanted it from.  So, I used google streetview to help pinpoint a location, and then I had to do some research to omit the buildings that wouldn't have been there in 1984.  So the research process was lengthy, but all in all, I feel it turned out great.  Anyway, all Fast Lane Illustration artwork by Ryan Sardachuk.

Caught Red Handed (Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Caught Red Handed (Painting)
Here's my latest painting titled "Caught Red Handed" heavily based off of a photograph that I collaborated with Kyle Hanger (aka KyleAndTheClassics) on a few months ago.  Even though, the photo was incredible, there were still a few touches I wanted to make to it to make it look perfect.  For example, I changed the appearance of the clothing on the mobster, and placed him at the shore of the east river in NYC circa 1977.  I also rebadged the 1967 Pontiac Parisienne (My Car) to become it's American counterpart, the Pontiac Bonneville for the sake of regional accuracy.  Finally, I made the lighting more dramatic, and introduced rain and reflections into the photograph to give it that eerie presence.  It's a bit dark, I know, but it's these sinister scenes with dramatic lighting and angles that make the most intriguing subject matter to paint.  I felt very inspired by the movies "The Seven Ups" from 1973, and "The French Connection" from 1971 while creating this.  Anyway, all Fast Lane Design artwork by Ryan Sardachuk.

Hello there I am Ryan Sardachuk... probably the biggest person who is stuck in time warp, that you'll ever meet. I am a full hearted retro lover, and even a bit of a redneck, and that has influenced me greatly in what i draw, and how i draw it. I draw mostly vintage american cars, from the days when the automakers made beautiful cars for every buyer segment. You know... the days when even the average american could afford to drive a car that could turn heads (The 57 Chevy is a fine example of this). Today ordinary people can only afford the bland lumps that we sadly call quality vehicles. you know... the ones that have no thought put into their design, and have less torque from the engine than they do in the lugnuts, and horsepower outputs similar to that of a sewing machine. What really surprises me about some of these new cars, is that you don't have to mix the oil and the gas like you do with your lawnmower haha. anyway i'm done ranting... this is my drawing style: I draw alot of existing cars, as well as some of my own... i prefer to use art pencils, watercolor paints, and watercolor pencil crayons. and sometimes oil pastels, but those can be a real pain... with that said, that pretty much summarizes my style, and presentation

Personal Quote: I Use Many Quotes... Some are mine some are not, But Heres A Few Good Ones: "If your gun rack has a gun rack, you might be a redneck", "Don't Piss On My Leg And Tell Me It's Raining", "If everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane!", "Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya", "If rabbits feet are so lucky, what happened to the rabbit?", "If you find a car when you mow your lawn, you might be a redneck"
Interests

I've been thinking lately about my artwork. I've enjoyed making this Life Story Of A Chevy Chevelle Series so far, and I feel that It'd be cool If I started another life story up for a different car with an entirely different story too. Feedback?

1 deviant said No... It was bad enough of an idea to do one life story of a car.

Thanks, I use prismacolor markers and graphite. I just checked out your artwork, amazing car paintings! I've always admired paintings of cars because of how precise they have to be to look good, your definitely one of the few people that I've seen that can paint realistic looking cars!
