    Time to practice for pp 13, I'm practicing my accuracy with freehand outlining without any stencil or shield, and I realised that I'm horrible doing that, but what the heck! that is why we have to practice after all!!

    Looks good. Cant beat practise, although beer comes close. Getting those fine outlines with the airbrush isn't easy so well done. I use a pencil or what ever does it best.

    That freehand work is awsome. Try adding a drop or two of reducer for that intermitent paint problem or slightly higher air pressure.

    Mouth completed, my hand hurts a lot!! The amount of force that I put in it to have AB control is insane, I need hours and hours of practice!! Any advice suggestion and criticism are more than welcome!!!
    Thanx for watching!

    Looking really good. My hand hurts also when airbrushing. Try to play with the way you hold your finger. If you hold it bent like writing with a pencil you will have the tendons get sore. If you try to keep you finger flat and use the tip of your finger at the first joint you will put less tress on your hand. Also you will gain more control.

    Your hand is sore because you are tense from lack of experience and the fear of making a mistake. The more you paint and get experience you will start to relax. You will make mistakes, we all do, but you will learn how to fix them or avoid them and you will be less tense. Keep up the good work.

    Its looking great to me. Your fine lines are coming along really nicely. Remember, the AB, by nature, cannot produce a perfectly crisp line like a hairy brush. With practice, you hand will learn to relax.

    I call it finished before I ruin it more, I went to dark in some areas, it is very difficult no to over do it!!! I learned a lot and I'm very happy with the end result beside the mistakes that I did!!!
    Thanx for watching!!
