    Are you a newbie to airbrushing?
    what to see if you can push yourself at this young stage in your airbrushing career?
    Then here is your chance. PORTRAITS!!
    Rules are simple
    You must be new to airbrushing (less then 9 months at it.)
    You have until march 15th to get it finished and posted in this thread.
    You must show reference photo you used and WIP pictures.
    and you must tell us what you have learned in the process.
    So if you meet the rules and want to do it just leave you name here on this thread.

    This was a grand challenge that ROB akarab3rd made to Inkster , and MJ wanted in to .
    So now it is open to all Newbies. (Not newbie to the forum but to airbrushing)
    Squishy gal will be the Special judge and I may call on a few others to lend her a hand ....
    No prize except might see if I can get Mitch to give you title a upgrade to Head Newbie...
    and of course bragging rights..

    You guys already know I'm in, but this is my official, "Put me down" post.

    I've already got my composition planned out. Just need to find the right reference piece. Good luck to everyone! May we all be better artists come March.

    Nope , Why you ask is because this one it the real deal and the other was you getting a feel for who you are up against. LOL
    It was your call out and this is where we see who steps up to the plate and plays ball..

    Here's what you do, log into the forum under a new user name, give yourself a trendy name like "airbrushing numpty" then go to "Introductions" and type only this "What airbrush please?", this will be enough to convince everyone that you're new and then you can sneak in unnoticed, you didn't get this from me, LOL

    OK, I obviously can't go that route then, but here's the deal, I've been airbrushing for 20 months, during this time everything I've done has involved maybe an average of 20% airbrushing, the rest is all erasing scratching and in some cases even pulling my hair out and screaming, according to my calculations that comes out an average of four months total airbrushing time, so am I in or am I not in?.

    Bear in mind Squishy is the head Honcho in this promotion and her decision is final.

    And if I wanted to I could whittle it down to a month if I take off the time spent picking off tip dry and trying to squeeze createx out of it's bottle without breaking my fingers.

    @Squishy, You know I love you, don't you? I mean you know I really really really love, don't you?, no pressure or anything but the decision is all yours, have some mercy for a poor orphan, I have no Mummy and Daddy and I had a nose bleed today, does that not count for anything?
