Audrey Hepburn by theangryfish Audrey Hepburn by theangryfish
I think this is one of my best from when I was airbrushing over Christmas. If I remember correctly, this was just after I got the tip replaced in my airbrush and it let me do a lot of nice fine detail and keep it very pale. While I usually use a stencil to tackle some of the sharper shapes in the eyes and nose, this one is entirely freehand (except for that shadow under the nose, I think)
The size is A1 (60 x 80cm) and could have taken anything up to 5 hours, I suppose, using a badger 150 airbrush.

would you be able to descibe the tools you used for me. Im having a little trouble connecting what i know about what you've used to how the finial product came out. ( which is stunning by the way - Audrey :drool: ) IM particuarly impressed with the eyes, below her chin and aa few parts throughout her fingers. I know many people that can create photo-like images and its an envy of mine.:giggle:


well done. :clap:

p.s i think you live near =braidy :O

I used a Badger 150 siphon airbrush for the whole thing except the highlights which were done with chinagraph pencil. The teqhnique was pretty much following the formula that I use for all my airbrush portraits (learnt here [link] ). Its designed to be able to quickly replicate photos so its all positive space texture with only the one colour. I normally use french curves and my hands as stencils, again for speed, but this one was mostly freehand.
Hope that helps.
