Paint Scheme Ideas

Newbie here.... Been kicking the idea of a bus conversion around for a number of years. Then I stumbled upon this forum, which has been a huge help at answering a ton of questions. I have yet to purchase a bus, maybe this summer, a local school is suppose to be unloading several after the school year.

I never liked the fact that so many bus conversions look like a giant loaf of bread rolling down the highway. So I found a perfect pic on line to Photoshop, gave my son several ideas I had in mind and said to keep everything in earth tone colors. This is what he came up with to start off. I think it turned out pretty awesome and won't be to difficult to do.

What do y'all think?

I like it and was going to do something similar to ours using different shades or blue/greens like the smokey mnts we have

I say go for it

Playing around with Photoshop some more. Will probably do a dozen or so ideas before settling on one. What I usually do on a project like this is save the image I like as my wallpaper on the desk top so I'll look at it everyday. If I get tired of it in a week or so then I'm thankful I didn't paint the bus. LOL

Here's another one....

I like the top one a lot.. Funny I had something similar in my head already for my project. Probably wont have so much contrast on mine, I'd like to use two similar green colors so you can hardly see the detail from a distance.

What are you people seeing? I see no photos or clickable links in any of the messages in this thread, and I hovered over all the text to see if one or two words might be an in-line link.

Confused . . . . . .

Redbear, you have to have a special decoder ring to see the pics. I got mine from Bansil for only 24.95 (plus shipping) and it was well worth it!

I can't see the links myself from my Iphone, but have no problems with the laptop.
