    Howdy. This is my first ever from-scratch submission here in the fan-art section. Be gentle.

    I've owned an airbrush for way too many years and never used it for anything other than touch-ups, painting models, and the odd household stain/clear-coat job. So, tonight I decided to try something crazy and actually use it to paint something.

    Cartoon paper and pencils, then airbrushed with India Ink thinned 50% with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. A generic con head.

    Pencils:

    Wish I would have taken a shot of the original black only airbrushing before I started the color work. It looked really good then. Some minor splattering late in the color stage led to some less than nice shading on the right side, and the ridiculous splotch on one of the eyes. Overall, I don't hate it, and I had a good time doing it. Probably more coming in the future.

    I see it as a "generic bot" that resembles Nemesis Prime. There are some small details (like the visor-like eyes) that separate it out a bit more as well. I think you've done a really good job with this :thumb  I hope we see more from ya :)

    :thumb  The fact that you're having a lot of fun really shines through here as well.

    Frustration is an interesting thing. Sometimes stepping back and reassessing things makes a world of difference, depending of course on the situation. Other times, you've just gotta plow through it. Keep up the good work, man :)
