Hello all, I am (for purpose of forum) shadow2462 and I am in no way an artist, until 6 weeks ago I have never even touched an airbrush. I own 3 airbrushes although to most artists none would be considered "good or even mediocre" quality, my best one is a MASTER 23 (#233 set w/.2,.3, & .5 tips), then I have 2 cheap badger clones that I use for base and larger paint needs. I have a very high regard for any true artist the way they can portray the highest level of depth and dimension. In my case I use the term skill because a skill can be taught but an art is God given. As my skills progress I will save my money to be able to purchase a good Iwatta or Badger brush.
