Hi there! I found you while researching airbrushing materials. I paint portraits in oil (or digital on my iPad) and I imagine airbrushing to be kind of like drawing with paint because of its precision and sharp edges. I'll soon see how that idea compares to reality! I'm trying to learn everything I can before purchasing my supplies. I am dying to start but I won't buy anything until I've learned enough to make informed decisions--don't want to complicate my learning period fighting inferior tools! It's been around 2 months of research--it was supposed to be my Christmas gift--and I'm no closer to selecting my stuff. Frustrating. Feel free to offer advice! Since my current equipment consists of brushes made of hair, or a stylus, the thought of handling compressors, metal parts and other airbrushing paraphernalia feels very awkward. But I'm beginning to feel more comfortable with the idea of working with such tools the more I read and watch. I just finished reading the Airbrushtutor guide and have been watching videos on YouTube. I bought some too. I loved Cory St Clair's painting of Thor and Craig Fraser's painting of Frankenstein. Looks so fun! I'm looking forward to playing with my future airbrush equipment. And maybe making a few friends here. Thanks for reading.
