    Hi all,
    I am not sure if this is the right place for this kind of post, but it is related of how one can do great stuff with great control and not with great airbrush.
    Recently I have searched airbrushing videos and stumbled on this artist. He is from Bogota, Columbia, and his name is Rafael. I was amazed of what he is able to do with his airbrushes, and none of them is one of the brands we all talk here on this forum. His main airbrush s a knock off of Iwata CM-CP2.

    Here are some of his videos where he shows his skills in real time, not sped up.



    Also , on his Youtube channel he has a bunch of amazing realistic airbrushing pieces. One I like a lot is the Deadpool's main character art.

    It is a shame that such talent has only 2K subscribers, but hopefully that will change.

    Enjoy.

    P.S. I don't know the guy, I have no connection with him, I just have found his work worth sharing with others.

    Yes, the second one is his grandfather. The level of detail is amazing.

    Thanx for sharing! Looks like the guy is great at transparent techniques.
    One time more we can see that those arent' microns make the high artistic level, but the hand holding the tool. No matter if it's chinese nockoff.

    That's the trouble with knock offs, once in a blue moon you get a good one, but that moon never shone on me lol. But it just goes to show, its the skill of the person on the end of it that counts.

    Recent quote I came across; "Don't practice till you get it right. Practice till you can't get it wrong".
