    You can't claim too much of a problem with shading looking at the two eyes Rick :D . I think they both look great. Imagine how that sucker's going to paint when it's at full strength. Exciting times Mate.

    I feel your pain Mate. The Michael Myers piece I'm doing is my first attempt at something that isn't a skull or fire lol. It's tough, but honestly the eyes and the shading around them looked great to me.

    we're always happy to promote good reliable trustworthy retailers/suppliers.

    If you start promoting other forums we might have to take you to the padded room out the back and give you a work over with the rubber hose.

    If you have a retailer that you have had great luck with or bad luck with that is good information to share.

    Just keep reminding yourself that your shifts are hella not as long as mine lol.
    I didn't know there were any other airbrush forums... everytime I google airbrushing it just brings me back here!

    I put together a brush using the older hp-b nozzle and needle yesterday - sweet performing brush! You are gonna be thrilled when you get everything back together and working.

    there is not much difference between the sb and sb+. The preset handle, but that is about it. The performance between the two is the same :).
