Nowadays I use Photoshop to "draw" my illustrations, but back in the old days (before PS existed!) I did them the old-fashioned way...airbrushed acrylics on illustration board, with fine details added by hand with a small brush (and plenty of clogged nozzles, paint bleeding under the frisket, running out of a particular color at the worst possible time, etc.)

This one is approx. 12x20 and dates from 1993 (way back!!!)... :)

Great work Harry. I'm afraid I've been away from my airbrush for so long I'd have to almost start over again. The only thing I use it for now is painting models. You certainly don't need 'the touch' for painting plastic models.
