    I have an Iwata Eclipse SBS. I have a Master TC 20T compressor but I think Im going to replace it with a California AirTools 5 gallon compressor. I have used created airbrush colors b/c they were available at the art store nearby. Im going to order some wicked colors once I get a little better. Im interested in doing fine art and illustration as well as Tshirts and Motorcycle Helmets.

    I don't have an art background but my fiancé does. She will help me draw stuff and I will try to use that to airbrush cool pieces for now. Probably will use some home made stencils and free hand shields as well.

    I am 28 yrs old. I live in the SF Bay Area in Oakland. I have a puppy named Smokey (11 months)and my fiancé is an artist/designer. I actually bought this entire airbrush setup for her B-day but it turns out that I might be more interested in it then she is, so far. I just got the setup today (4-20-17).

    Welcome! There are many tools to help one draw and layout designs. Opaque projectors and tracing apps are the most popular. There is also grid methods and measures for reproducing images to the right proportion. With practice these skills will grow and help your eye to see the details. Just keep practicing and if your serious about it you can do it.

    Hello! Welcome to the forum. What kind of puppy do you have? When I was little we had a Black Lab named Smokey. He was a really cool dog!
