good effort mate, sharpen up the nose a bit and you're onto a winner (says the grim reaper of all things sprayed aka fuckin useless at modifying anything).

Looking really good though.

Mate, I am in no position to give advice, I like it. It's like a cross between the Crow and the Joker... cool.

Duno mate, i think the B/W contrast is a good effect, colour is nice but i think it is the negative look that makes it pop, less is more.. ! But it is your piece, you should do what you feel not what others think..

Not looking too bad mate. Main thing is not to beat yourself up with it but keep trying. Easy to get frustrated and overwork portrait work. Thats the biggest challenge really. Theyre so subtle things to get right.

Ive got god knows how many years of design and artwork, from pastels to CAD, but transfering that to airbrushing was hard work! Faces are without a doubt the biggest challenge facing any airbrush artist. Took me a while to get my head round them and Ive sprayed a lot of stuff.

Spent a solid month (7 days a week) doing that Van Helsing bike artwork on my website. Its hard going but pays off with the end result. Keep at it as its deffo getting there.

cheers m8,
checked out your work and impressed...
as im quite new to the face thing its a huge learning curve...shadows,light source...blahhh..lol
my ultimate aim is to be able to do boris stuff..yeah i know its been done ,but thought limiting myself to 3 colours would help so much and not complicate things to much..
dam waffling again..
ps ..when do you know when its done?
