    He'l there. I have some airbrush experience and stumbled upon this thread in hopes to bring my game to the next level lol. I have bought a dru blair classroom in a box and although I used to turn my nose at these sort of techniques I found myself in awe of the effect it created. So real, so pretty :) anyways thanks for having me

    Welcome home Samantha nice to have you here, While photo realism is not everyone style things you learn from any of Dru's class in a box can be used for any style you're into.
    feel free to post of some of your works would love to see them .

    Hello and welcome from Northern Ontario Samantha :)
    London reminds me of TO, but smaller and not as dirty ( and a lot nicer atmosphere ) ;). London use to have a nice market by the Labatt centre... I'm curious ... Is it still there?
    Sounds like you're well on your way with equipment and supplies.
    Donna is great ( I order my stuff from her as well and the candies she sends is a sweet bonus).
    I'm looking forward to seeing some of your work.

    They can look huge, but a lot of members use their phones/tablets for internet, the images seem to resize well on a phone, and clicking between links can be a pain
