This is the one I lost when I posted the first time, I did this kind of art work on motorcycle tanks years ago, And found the pictures when I was cleaning out the Garage.

Hi Sam

Back when I was 30 years younger, I used to paint cars on the side, and also motorcycles. Some of the guys wanted something on the tanks..

I drew pictures and then cut them out to use as stencils, I made up about 30 pictures that they could pick from.

I tried free hand, but never spent enough time to get good at it.

This summer I finally cleaned out my garage, and found the pictures . I spend most of my time on the Water Color forum, but when the airbrush forum came up,I had a chance to show them.

I have a Eclipse Iwata, a Paasch VL, and a Binks Wren airbrush.

I also have a Paasch 0500 compressor.
I use the airbrush a little on some of my Water Colors.

After looking at some of the pictures here on this forum, I may give the airbrush another try.

I have used the airbrush in Photoshop .60, and did a portrait that came out pretty good.It's a picture of my mother at age 17

Check out my profile to see it.

William, freehanding does take some practice! I think you should pick up your AB again!! I will check out the pic of your Mom. Look at this guys work:
He is an AB artist who works with watercolors.

Hi Alan

I haven't used them in a good while, As you know, I'm into Water Colors now. But I'm thinking I'll give it another try.

I like all three of these William.
The clouds came out great!
My favorite is the last one with that wonderful feeling of warmth.

Glad you found your airbrush!

BTW, I was doing some "housekeeping" in the forum and merged these three threads together for you.
