This is my second attempt at the cheesy airbrush assignment. I didn't think that airbrush is for me. I like control, but I'm not a perfectionist, and I lack the meticulous nature thatan airbrush artist necessarily has to have. Also, I seem to attract water spots to my work like magnets. It's rather frustrating. But at least I am able to control the spray and get fairly predictable results with the actual painting process. I think airbrushing is great for large areas of color, especially for consistent gradients, but I don't think I could do anything more than that with my illustrations.
