    This is my first attempt at a skull. I found a pic to copy off the net. I used my eclipse hp-cs 3.5,auto air opaque black and then remembered i'd bought some trans black so started using that :) . Painted on normal cheapo A4 print/photocopy paper and used a pencil rubber and blade for highlighty bits n bobs.

    Thanks very much guys. I thought i'd push myself and learn from it.I researched and read alot on technique and how too's from this forum before i started and was pretty nervous to be honest.i'm used to a paint brush but ive never cut out and used stencils before and that felt quite alien and more precise than what i'm used. Once i started the freehand bit i got into a rythm and really enjoyed it.Ive surprised myself and i'm really pleased how it turned out.I'd like to say a Big thank you to you all on Orangeairbrush for sharing your knowledge and your feedback it has helped me loads!:):):)
