    Thought i would post this as im pleased with it up to now.
    It could go either way from now on.
    Ive really taken some time with this one and built it up slowly. Ive also taken more time to mix colours that are closer to the reference. Theyre still not perfect( too dark ) but im improving.
    Im using bristol board so i knew i would not be able to erase as i have been doing on yupo and 4g.
    Im using wicked detail

    Lol ....my son said exactly that. Its good that dad but its creepy as hell ha ha
    She has really heavy almost black eye make up which im nervous about, it could easily go messy.
    The whole right side shadow has to be darkened a lot as well.
    Im starting to realise that even though i cant see the paint hitting the surface....IT IS.
    Im guilty of going too heavy too soon which is why i took a picture b4 i potentially ruin it.
    I actually spent a whole day on and off watching mitch,s airbrush tutor vids again.
    I noticed how gradual he builds a layer up and picked up loads of pointers and advice id not taken in the first five times i watched themo_O
    I dont think theres paint coming out until its obvious and by then its usually too much and too dark. You cant teach patience but you can definitely learn it.
    Is that a quote? ....if not it should be lol.
    She shall have eyes of some description tomorrow:thumbsup:

    Your last paragraph is absolutely the most true element of airbrushing, learning to trust it! We are all guilty!

    20180122_182534.jpg So ive gone for it and started some eye action. Still a way to go yet .
    They have to go darker still but i want to get the shadow in the hair and face at the right contrast so it all ties in.

    Great Piece Rick looks like your really getting the hang of this with what you have done with her!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    About the only thing I would do diff. is not cut off her arms (Straight lines) on the lower area keep them going to the bottom of the picture or lower the picture so thats on the lower edge
