    Watch a few of the videos and see how she picks out shapes and then fills it in with color pencils (I use this to airbrush my pictures just using the airbrush instead of the colored pencils,
    should help the new airbrush artist just getting started on portraits

    Good way to look at it, its all about the shapes..the rest is just detail LOL, I pretty much airbrush as I would draw though, and vica versa..the two are very similar in ways..

    Cool idea. I sometimes draw lightly in water colors and then airbrush over. The watercolors blend with the paint. Everybody has their style. Whatever works for you.

    Thats how I start most of the time too, Thought the site showed shapes in the drawing well and how she blends them together to make the picture
