Bwahaha @SiRoxx and I see Squishy is back too! You're in deep doo doo!
And she now has a partner in mischief who goes by then name @LadyCharlie
Late to this party but...
What kept me going when I started?.... Basically I'm a stubborn b*tch. I can do that. How hard can it be? Oh. Really hard. Obvs I can't admit that, so now have to carry on regardless.
Not only am I stubborn, I am a slow learner, and somewhat cranially challenged. My lonely brain cell never made friends and is one sandwich short of a picnic at the best of times.
Clueless is an understatement. I didn't know the difference between single or double action, that you needed to reduce paint, or even that you couldn't just use any paint. On top of that I was too stupid to think of looking online for... wait for it... 6 months. Yep. That stupid
So six months of playing airbrush javelin, swearing like a sailor, offering sacrifices to gods, slightly damaging and maiming annoying humans who dared cross my path, having full on tantrums, losing teeny parts, losing my mind, losing the will to live, tattooing myself (genuinely have various dots on my hands from stabbing myself with an airbrush while experimenting with ink ￼￼￼), generally avoiding getting sectioned and needing rehab.
I didn't learn what to do, but more what not to do. Eventually (after repeating mistakes only two or three... Or four... Hundred times) all that was left was what worked. And all that after I spent weeks just getting paint to flow, and constantly cleaning my barely useable cheap nasty brush. Lol. But I got somewhere.......
Then my lonely brain cell had a clue and I looked online. Strokes?? There are different strokes? You're supposed to do exercises? Transparent paints? Colour theory? Over reduction? Layering?..... Tick..... Tick..... Boom! Lonely brain cell overload.
Re engage stubborn bitch mode. I will do this!!! Eventually even this slow learner started to get the hang of it. And finding this place made it all so much easier, and so much more determined, and so much more fun x
@Squishy being stubborn is a good thing
For someone with a lonely brain cell, you are very eloquent.
I'm not buying it.
This forum was my rock in growth, a solid support network of non ego people!
And yes, I remember looking at work thinking the same as you, now I teach it when I can before the word fell to bits
It's Sooooooo lonely. It does like to talk though. Bloody thing never shuts up .
I'll have what she's having...make it a double.
Now we're talking! I do like a double.
We're still talking about drinks, right?
As in "double action"? You're not surfing the internet again, are you??
I see you three are going to be a handful.
You asked for it
Nothing quite as good as a bit of double actioning. Always looking for research purposes, just looking to perfect technique
Trust her she tells the truth! Ok maybe some truths?
I read this and now I'm going to my place in the gutter! I'll save your seat because I know it won't be long.
I started airbrushing fishing lures it was easier then pictures to paint but those first ones really weren't much to look at!but now thanks to this forum I learned how to airbrush correctly
