Airbrush freehand example (how I use Photoshop)

I do a lot of custom airbrushing on bikes, cars, helmets etc.

Quite often I will sit at the mac for an hour or so, freehanding ideas....

Re: Airbrush freehand example (how I use Photoshop)

You show a great talent and a fair bit of patience.
Yes it would be nice to be able to freehand and many of us cant/dont/wont but there again not many of us try, maybe with some encouragment and basic pointers we could try ?

up to prompting us at all Jeff ? gettting us out of our "safe zone" ( it's ok not mandatory )

Well there you go.... You should all practice!

can't/don't/won't = file tweakers and smudgers.

Do's = creative retouchers.

I have never met a decent Creative retoucher, that cannot draw, paint or sketch! You have to have this skill under your belt, or where are you going?

Perhaps I can sort some stuff out.... It really depends on time.

That is what i am starting to realise,

can't/don't/won't = file tweakers and smudgers.
That's Me

Do's = creative retouchers.

I have never met a decent Creative retoucher, that cannot draw, paint or sketch! You have to have this skill under your belt, or where are you going?

That is usually the biggest problem


may i ask on the post of the unfinished lady did you have a outline to follow ? if not that would seem to me to be impossible to do (even unfinished it looks good )

I do think that those of us who cant/wont/dont are probably more worried about the "appearance" of what we do, and what those who can will say.

Re: Airbrush freehand example (how I use Photoshop)

layer 1..... I would do a very rough sketch....

I would then start making paths for the various parts....

Then just go in with your brush!
