    Like to see what you come up with from these especially that first picture, that will be awesome if you could recreate that.

    I think I am gonna need a few pointers for that one from Mitch, the tricky bit is the clouds but I do enjoy doing the space pics, I'm still waiting for some Gerald Mendez fx stencils which seem to have been on back order forever!. I'm also planning to do some Alien(Ridley Scott) pics too when I fine the time.
    Painting cloud scenes I think are quite tricky to get right so it would good to hear how other people do theirs....come on Mr Tutor show us how in a vid, pretty please:)

    That would great mate, the last pic(brown planet) is the one that I am in the process of trying to do now, the challenge I find is how to make the sun really pop out and stay bright? I realised I don't have many transparent paints so I have started with a completely black background except a circle where the sun is.
    I am painting on an A3 piece of 220grms Bristol board and have some very old 12 years FW inks and a few createx colours!! So I like a challenge and for me that is one of the fun parts in airbrushing :). Will post it when finished(unless i muller it completely!)
    Would love to see what you do with it Mitch
