    Well I’ve been wanting to practice beards and skin texture so I found a good reference online for both. I don’t get to airbrush real often so it might be a little while before finishing up.

    11x14 Terra Slate synthetic paper
    E’tac Carbon black

    Thank you. He’s got a little bit more of an animated expression in the finished piece. I hope I can capture that

    Thanks guys. I’m really struggling with really curved or squiggly hairs. I can do decent with straighter ones using a blade.

    This guys beard gets wild as you’ll see a little more of it later on but some has been cropped out due to the paper size I’m using.
