Making a comeback to airbrushing



Hi guys,

My name's Josh, and I have to confess I've been stalking these forums for a little while before posting.

Here's a bit of my airbrushing history: I started when I was 14, and took a few courses through my high school. At 16 I was airbrushing caps and portraits in shopping centres, but still wasn't taking it that seriously. Did a few portraits here and there over the next four years, but by then I was in University, and found less and less time for it. The last time I airbrushed was 2006.

In the years since then I've done some graphite and charcoal drawings, had a few attempts at oil painting and watercolours, but getting the old airbrush out again seemed like too much effort. Now I'm 29 I've got my own house with a decent sized garage, I've revived my old set-up, bought a new airbrush, paints etc. and I'm excited to see how far I can take it.

Here's a few pics of my new airbrush setup and current work in progress.

The Iwata CM-C Plus is an amazing improvement over my battered old Badger 150. I was really getting into the zone last night and it felt like I was controlling it with my mind!


I'm really looking forward to meeting you all and learning from you.
Welcome to the Forum Josh, I look forward to seeing your work.
Cheers Mel
