    as I mentioned in my other thread this is not my design and all credits for the design go to Anne Stokes
    I downloaded this ref years ago when I was just starting to try and paint with an airbrush I think it was back in 2006 but I am not sure any way back than my skills where poor and I was not able to paint it but now I know I have the skills to pull it off when I can focus on the sweet spot in my eye sight :D

    thanks SiRoxx as the thread says this one is all about having fun with the airbrush in this case the CM SB ( it needed some tlc before it would play nice for me today with the Etac efx straight from the bottle as I like to use it and I laid down the basic shapes for the skull and mini gargoyles

    I keep forgetting my right side isnt as strong as it used to be and did a bit to much heavy lifting today just to find out my right hand and trigger finger didnt want to play with the airbrush so I had no choice and only did the easy parts to empty to cup

    I had a good long look at the ref to see if would follow it or not and made my decision : a full black background it is ( I can always change is if I want to )

    thank you Simon that is what I thought the original back ground is real nice but it has a bit to much going on to my taste

    with this back background I felt the need to adjust the values to the darker side before I start with detailing

    played around to see if a little color would change the overall feel like it does on the original

    I am not sure if it is my sight problem but it seems the camera picked up colors that are not in the painting

    It’s looking good Ron. I like the little touch of red in the eyes.
