Ok well i have this case thats white and i desided to airbrush a grim reaper on the box. It game ok kinda weird but kinda ok. It looks kinda ghostly but i want to know what you think about it, im think about sanding it down and giving it another try...

For a first try it looks pretty good (really good in fact - much better than I could ever do) but if you want to improve your methods and get a better result, I would try it again.

i agree with brahm2 on everything he said, IMO i would sand down and retry. since you know the spots that gave you troubles and what not.

It's better than I could do airbrushing, but (no offense) you should practice your airbrushing some more. It looks good, but if you practice more you can get some pretty wicked stuff from an airbrush.

The reaper you have seems to have alot of detail...you'e going to need to use something that will attribute finner/thinner lines...

All in all, very nice for a first try wink.gif

It is a little hard to see at first but all that I know is that it is better than what I could have done so I give you congrats.

I think it looks kick ass. When you redo it use a finer line. You will see more details.

Practice your design on some ARTBOARD or something.. cut to the right shape. One you got it right.. it'll be easy to replicate (more or less)

Airbrushing is hard man it is better than my first attempt was (mind you i didnt do it on an xbox) looks pretty cool though. If you wanna work more on it practice your technique more on acryllic or some other kind of plastic and then when you get really good try it again.
