Check out this sample of the Carmine VI made for Shaquille O’neal. But seriously, remember that Air Jordan VI sculpture we showed you at the end of August? Here’s a look at the completed project, painted perfectly to resemble the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’. This sculpture was done by an artist who goes by the name Mr Loverman El Hedonista (by far one of the coolest artist handles we’ve ever come across), who decided to show off his sick artwork by displaying it next to an actual pair of the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’, on the roof of a red car, and a woman who we presume to be the future Mrs. Loverman El Hedonista. Check out the gallery of images below and let us know what you think!
Should of went with a matte finish, the gloss throws everything off. Proportions are off. Laces are half assed, Sole could of been painted way better, Missing the air unit, etc. If i had to present this as a school project i'd get ripped apart for quality. Decent Job, But not amazing.
needs to paint the "clear" part of the soles to give it contrast...like a very pale/light baby blue. very sick as it is but that would make it that much better
Great work! Inspires me to get busy. I like the fact that he changed it up. He originally had a Jumpman logo on the back, glad he decided to go OG with the final product. Awesome work.
