Islander

One of the things I love about airbrush is the sharp edged illustrative aspect, its ability to create hyper-realism from the abstract. You don't get to be artsy, you have to plan carefully and execute accordingly, no deviation from the plan (unless part of that plan is to start completely over.)

Islander employs a very strict masking technique, and the only point at which I let go was in the fine x-acto knife scratches to create the highlights in the hair.
