    I joined this forum to try to learn the use of an airbrush and possibly be able to create some of the arts that appeal to me for pleasure, not for a job or living. Amazingly enough with the help of all the great peeps here, in a short period of 3 months I have gone from stick figures to my latest "Tribute". So this log is to declare that it is my intention and goal to dedicate at least 2 hrs. per day or 15 hrs. per week. This includes inspiration, references, stencil, texture, paint on media. as needed. My goal is to produce at least one completed piece per month and possibly paintpal piece to boot.

    Nice one mate:). Set yourself some great goals there bud, I like your style, it's kind of refreshing when you write it down so to speak and tell everyone what you are going to achieve! Anytime spent thinking and planning, marking out and preparing...even cleaning your airbrush all points to you focusing on painting and picking up the airbrush..all good!

    Welcome on board mate

    I had not painted anything for almost a week due to feeling under the weather and some type of painters block lol, it's not the best excuse but i'll use it lol So since most i got my wicked paints I wanted to play with some color using both different colors and mixing. This pic is more about working with the colors than about detail or neatness for that matter. this is REF: IMG_0236.jpg I lightly sketched the outline but didn't show in the pic. and FINISHED: IMG_0237.jpg This was just some practice work ...nothing special!

    Update 10/14/03: Another play around piece for seasonal pic titles "I want my Mummy" lol Sorry no steps on this, I started the preliminaries last night and just jumped in today when I got home. REF: thCAS1KB3X.jpg and of course my completed version: IMG_0238.jpg This was done on black sign board with Wicked detail paints and my Velocity. They may not be the best quality but at least I'm staying busy lol.
