*PRO PIX are IN! Updated*I can see where the dragon went wrong, but still happy! (pic heavy but only one subject)

Post by Mehndi Masala on Wed Jan 11, 2012 8:57 pm

so had my AJ intoday and was going to practice freehand airbrushing, BUT a photograher friend wanted in on taking shots of the finished work so decided to 'make it count' and went back to brush and sponge! (didn't want to waste a photo op right?)





this is my camera shots because I wanted to share now. When the pro shots come.....hopefully the photographer nailed the good ones and I'll post those here later! Needless to say....lighting in my livingroom bites. AND the timeline that was supposed to be loose, ended up tightening due to my model having to be at a job interview! His head is too small, body too big and you can't see his claws BUT overall pretty happy with how it turned out and was happy I didn't use a design, just 9 different dragon references! Not as great as most of the stuff I see, but for my 'still learning' curve, I'm pleased and had to share!!

Too late to have thought of in progress for the most part, but when I got my head on straight I got a bit for ya!!

Thanks guys! I really loved doing this! I've got him coming in again on the 16th, gonna try a koi 'tattoo' and experiment with my airbrush! I have zero experience with it so lets' see how THAT goes!! LOL If it sucks, then no problem....I'll do something nice on his chest so I will at least have something for my portfolio.

@Jolene - I am creating a Model Mayhem profile for him! He really should be shared with the world! LOL When went to the photographer, we also took some face shots for him so we can start building more than just him being painted.

I just picked up an airbrush and I have no clue where to start. What sort of paint did you use?

Well I am a great 'I'm gonna....soon....so I'll pick up this and that..." person. (which means my house can look like a hoarder in training with art supplies!! wood burning kit, molding supplies, acrylic paint and canvas...even tho I've never painted a canvas since before high school-you get the idea)

When I was filming for FABAtv I was lucky enough to wander through the sillyfarm warehouse so I bought some airbrush body paint which is thier 'house brand' but have yet to open it up expecting to use it 'soon'! I did pick up an airbrush YEARS ago (8 years?) and still have the info on psi use for body (ex. you don't use the highest psi on a person ESPECIALLY on the face) but no practical use yet. (have not yet plugged in the compressor!!!) I've taken one airbrushing class and that was on poster board. So I guess I can say I have a VAUGE idea of where to start, but not much more than that AND in the class we used masking...no masking available on a body so let's see what happens! And I promise that even if it's a disaster I will post it! Ummm...*IF* I dont' have a tantrum and just trash it by spraying all over it. I will make an effort to NOT do that! LOL

But for the above piece it is all sponge and brush work and I used wolfe, diamond and a touch of paradise.
