    I have cussed my airbrushes hundreds of times... I think, it's a sign of giving a s&*t.

    Been there, get days when I think everything I've ever managed to achieve before was just a fluke, and then frustration makes it worse. Usually means I have to walk away, do something else, and come back to it fresh with a well cleaned gun and a better frame of mind. Doesn't happen too often Lol!, but when I start to swear, my family suddenly need to be somewhere else Lol!

    I'm not sure what's wrong with this Ran. I think this will be a fine painting when it's done. If you explain the problem you were having, someone might be able to tell you how to fix it.

    Yup, every day LOL...Sometimes it helps just to walk away from a piece when ya not in the groove, will always be there tomorrow and sleeping on it sometimes can help you refresh ideas and ways to tackle it...I'm sure every artist as we are a self hating lot at times will have the same feeling across a lot of their own work...Bring some fresh eyes in and ask what they thinks needed, my wife and child are greatest critiques (Besides me of course) and if I get the thumbs up from them I figure I might be wrong LOL

    Something that ive started doing, i'll have another piece next to me that i'll switch over to. It won't be nothing major just a piece that practice with. Then if that doesn't work, walking away and nursing yourself back with a nice strong *$#^%!*$#^%!*$#^%!*$#^%!tail.

    I know exactly what you mean Ran, i wasnt able to airbrush for around 1 week and last saturday i thought i have a go again. And nothing worked out, the gun clocked up 2 times and alot more went wrong.
    I was getting so angry that i was just ripping the painting i done so far apart and threw it away lol.

    I believe I had a day once when I didn't feel like this, but I think that was before I started.

    I know exactly where your coming from Ran, I once had such a bad day, I tried to overdose on paracetamol, but after the first 2 I felt better.

    art is a personal,and pasionate thing. i think most artists are a bit sensative by nature. i swear and chuck excrement about quite often, curse my tools, and anyone that is silly enough to come and see what the noise is about. but every now and then you acheive something you are truly proud of. and it makes it all worth while.
