Sketchbook: Christa.

Christa (Acrylic ink and watercolor in Moleskine sketchbook, 5x8").  Applied blue, raw sienna, and black acrylic ink via airbrush.  Used opaque watercolors over the top.  I had a difficult time getting this to accurately scan.  I included a camera shot at the end to give a different reference point than the scanner (first image).

Here is the original pencil sketch:

I airbrushed the sketch with cyan, raw sienna, and black acrylic inks.

And here is the final image taken via camera:

Thanks Joseph! I appreciate your support. I'm a big fan of your work.

Thanks Beth! I'm not a fan of pure airbrush work, but think that it looks cool when mixed with other mediums. I'm just trying to figure out that balance. I love the atmosphere the airbrush creates.
