    Hi.
    Im new to Airbrushing but ive been spray painting cars for 30 years. I recently purchased a Badger Krome and some Createx Illustration Paints. I really want to learn how to do portraits.
    Ive been practicing lines and dots etc and have done some work on canvas pads and a clayboard.
    I look forward to reading and learning as much as possible on here.

    Cheers Shane

    The first album (and I mean vinyl record) I ever bought was Kiss Destroyer... Detroit Rock City blew my 5 year old head off lol. There's lots of stuff in that book that I never knew. A couple years ago I saw them live and they were truly awesome!

    Welcome aboard from South Australia, we have a few Aussie members.

    Great start so far, your years of spray painting will help with understanding the importance of pressure/paint/reduction

    Welcome Shane. Looks like you’re off to a great start. The Starchild is a great reference piece too. I loved his book and was also surprised to hear about his ear.

    Well cant go to work today there has been heavy rain since Friday night here in Far North Queensland. I live in Mossman which is about an hour and a half north of Cairns. Roads are blocked and land slides etc.
    So I thought I might post some pics of some of my work. 20170303_171148.jpg 20170303_171130.jpg FB_IMG_1461452031387.jpg FB_IMG_1461452038343.jpg 20170722_185428.jpg 20170722_185413.jpg 20170722_192823.jpg
