Thanks I have been watching them and I look forward to using the tips in them. One thing I have noticed is I seem to like the stippling effect on some pieces is there a way for me to practice that before I get my air engraver?

jj said to post up some pictures of my artwork so here it goes.
one I did of my buddys car all dots except the background that was done in ink wash.

my first oil painting thinking about doing another one today. (havent done one since I did this a few months ago.) I dont know why the yellow is so prominant in the pic its more muted on the canvas


I like art and like the idea of doing something a little more permanent so I am gravatating twards engraving

Hi Hazegry

Your work there is way good !
Engraving would be ideal if you go for it,my opinion.
JJ is one of the best engravers, guide and mentor.
