    A keen photographer needed a new challenge always liked art so with time on my hands I thought I would give airbrushing a try. I have an Iwata Eclipse HP CS. Been practicing my dots blends dagger strokes etc all going well so far practicing and patience is the name of the game.

    Welcome from Australia
    If you like airbrush tutors videos then you’ll love it here, we all have a weird sense of humour, don’t take ourselves to seriously and have a bunch of laughs thanks to the awesome diversity of members here

    Thank you at my age you have to have a sense of humour as bits of your body fall off and seize up a good laugh is the best medicine.

    Welcome to the forum Papa, dots and daggers are great but dont be scared to have a go at other things, buy a childrens colouring book or print some pics off from the internet and shade them in, sometimes dots and daggers can get boring.
