    I think the gal's nips should be the same green as her eyes.
    I am always envious of those who can airbrush because I can't.
    Nice work! I like your new avvie too.
    Love...Jill

    Your girls darks are a little bit too saturated and the girl could use some highlight work. Looks good.

    I haven't had mine out in over a year.

    @pat thanks. the first one was a about 1 - 2 hours the second about an hour.
    @ kage thanks using createx/auto air (less harmful chemicals to breath in).. lol all water base.
    @ weasel thanks yes i have a bad habit of going to dark the wife yells at me all the time about going to dark. one time she even took my black and hid it on me . lol. trying to break that habit. if you know of any tips that will help me on breaking that please do tell..

    Yes, don't use black. Use darker versions of the color that you're working on. ... I think createx might even have a translucent black. That would help you build up your black nice and slow. Spray a bit, step back and look... or better yet, get the wife in there.

    LOL thanks weasel. i actually make my own trans by using 409 mixed believe it or not it also helps when reducing it and helps with tip drying. in but i will try that on the next piece and have you in the back of my head before i touch the black...lol or i will just keep it out of site i started to do what you said but i keep falling back in old bad habits...
    again thanks

    i think you could use black like you did but the art has to work with it.

    a couple of things i notice are too much overspray ( could be the createx?)
    the overspray gives a Tshirt airbrush look. and as already mentioned needs highlights to make the image not so flat.

    if you were to use the black on the girl drawing i think it needs a more comic book look or stylized like a comic. i did a hulk on the back of this car and used black for most of the shadows.. i think its style would work on the girl.
