Very cool. This just makes you happy when you look at it, no way around it! :D

I never thought of foam board. Might have to bother a friend who has a cutting table now.

Great work!

Wow, you certainly nailed that airbrushing technique. I like those layers.
Old Dog???? Which old dog??

Chammi this ol' dog says, "THANKS again!" :)
The whole thing wasn't really planned, just wanted to see what happens when I do..xx??. Hence some stenciling, some straight edges, some free hand. Spent a lot of time just getting the correct viscosity to go through the brush. I used Liquitex acrylics out of a tube to make a mix for the airbrush. looks like about 20:1 (water to paint) .. The tubes I have now should last my lifetime. The airbrush is a great weapon to add to your armory. Put a complete kit on your list to Santa, you'll luv' it.
