My first skull without stencils

I had a go at being creative.... Combined a few skull designs that I'd seen on google and combined them, getting the hang of slowly. It took about 15 mins so if I took my time I think icould do better,
I used auto air semi opaque reduced with 4010 4 paint 2 reducer, kept getting tip dry though

Way to go! Your first original! Maybe try reducing a little more and lowering your pressure to lessen the tip dry.

Thanks for good vibes though, encouraging

We've all been there Lol! But you're doing the right thing, experimenting and finding out what works and what doesn't. Sign and date this, and hang on to it. Then in a couple of months look at what you did, and amaze yourself, cos if you got this far already, think how far along you'll be by then.

outstanding job on the eye there sub! Really great.....the white over black/or the grey bit above the top left of eye grabs my attention a little bit, looks slightly the wrong tone compared to the very dark darks and the very white highlights but other than that a seriously god job.....textures are spot on shading indicates direction of scales really well.....well done brosef!

Yeah mate,
I've street fighterd an fj1200 with an xj. Bassetts used to be awesome.

I must say you have some next level skill as an artist! Wish I had that talent.

Nice of you to say, but I don't see always, I think my paintings always look better on photo, standing front of it I see patches of mess, but I think that's how get better, airbrush tutor has been doing it around 15-16 years I think, if I can anywhere near that in 10 years time I'll be a happy manImageUploadedByTapatalk1374419418.825340.jpg, I done this last night and this morning, a mate wants it on his chopper project, got to keep doing it until I find I'm happy with it,
