Again, images are too wide - changed to links.

Also, it would be helpful to describe your kit a little - you say it's a garage kit, but what is the subject - who is this buxom babe?

Looks great.
It could be the lighting, but the black is too dark... it sorta looks like she's  wearing a blackhole...

Looks very nice! After seeing all your "I'm a newb" posts I figured that you were short on skills. This is a very nice looking piece though.  8)

What? How? Who?!?

If this is your first attempt at airbrush and your first garage kit, the results are... startling. Very nicely done, but startling nonetheless.  :shock:

Definitely an amazing "first".

Thank you all for the comments. I really aprecciate it..It´s very good for a noob like me to hear such great compliments.I still have lots and lots of things to learn, but I´m loving the experience of airbrushing.It´s so great.

mrmaigo...you are very right..I still don´t know how to work with light...And photo...It´s very difficult for me...I´ve been reading lots of tutorials about taking good pictures, but I still suck on that (can I say this?). I might have to build those light boxes...but I still haven´t found a tutorial with simple supplies...I´m from Portugal so it is difficult to get american brands...

THANk you so so so so much.
I´ll be posting more works here in the future for sure.

Now I´m thinking about the gundam that is on the models in progress thread.

 :)

For taking pictures, I bought a cheap light tent on ebay.  You may be able to find something similar in portugal:

Light Tent

Really, it helps to take glare off what you're photographing, and helps to even out the light - so it doesn't matter how many or how bright the lights are that you are using.

one is halogen, one is just a normal desk lamp, and the other 5 are 100 watt light bulbs in the ceiling...
