    After some sheets of lines and dots, this was my first tutorial.

    I had some problems near the end with paint drying on my needle tip.
    I'd like some feedback on what i must practice more to improve. Anybody? :)

    Nothing bad about that, you have gone a little bit dark but most people do on the first few trys, Also try using a different color as black is very easy to go to dark to fast,but like I said very good first try ,good dagger strokes and blends with a little more time behind the airbrush you should be up and running in no time

    The paint on the needle tip is called tip dry... normal and changes with paints, temperature ,.pressure, humidity... What sort of paints are you using? What airbrush as well...?
