    Words of wisdom...With any new endeavor, you start at the bottom and work up. As mentioned, don't gauge your abilities on someone else s work. Go at your own pace, don't get frustrated, ask questions and do the best you can.

    I don't know how I let this thread get by me after my first post. I certainly missed a lot. Awesome befores and afters. So, I figure I'll post up my first ever painting..

    Thanks Squishy and Matty, you're very kind. LOL Although I was quite pleased with my first, you can see that my lines and fades were not good.

    Well, I don't have anything to recent, since the Paint Pal I just sent out was the first thing I've really painted in the last year, but here are some examples of how I've progressed.

    This was my very first attempt at airbrushing anything. I was ecstatic that it even somewhat resembled the reference

    This was the second thing I ever airbrushed

    A year and a half later, I was painting things for clients.

    Then I did the bio-mechanical competition, and had a blast!

    Since I haven't painted in quite a while, I feel like I've regressed quite a bit, but hopefully I can back up to speed to where I was and then keep improving.

    Thanks for the kind words, but that leads to another possible problem... I haven't ridden a bike in 15 years... I may have forgotten how to do that as well. LOL

    Apart from a ton of lines, daggers, dots and all that silly yet important stuff I've only painted 2 pictures so far.

    First ever proper (sucky) attempt :
    [​IMG]

    Feeling encouraged, I spent a lot of time and painted my second, last so far painting:
    [​IMG]
    It was from a reference and I mixed airbrushing with traditional brushes.

    So just two to start with... and can't find the time to get more in.... saying that now that I got the airbrushing station upstairs I got no excuses.
