    Never even heard of airbrushing oils but the results speak for themselves - velvet skin that I want to reach out and touch (not the naughty bits). I would put that on my bucket list of skills to learn but i don't think its doable. Salute to you though!

    Wow! Fantastic fleshtones, so as the rest! Really cool all around!
    I'd also like to hear more about oils airbrushing, not that I could ever do it, but still :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the comments guys, I really appreciate it.
    As for the flesh and oils I wanted to go with a less "contrasted" look to her fleshtones because she is a "she" and it was a larger scale so I tried airbrushing oils for it. It was pretty easy for the most part. I mixed my flesh colors on a palette like normal and then put each color into a seperate small "mixing cup" where I added Tamiya lacquer thinner to a very thin consistency of paint to thinner. Over an enamel flesh basecoat I airbrushed the different tones, letting it dry over night then "touching up" and building up color each night afterwards for 3-4 sessions. In between painting sessions I put paint cups in the freezer to slow evaporation of thinner/paint mixture and keep it fresh for entire time.
    Hope this helps with the technique I tried on it.
    I got the bust as a gift from a friend, but he ordered it from E2046, which I believe is a manga/fantasy figure website.
    Thanks for the responses and I hope I answered some of the questions you all had-

    Nice Scott! Transitions on the flesh tones look fantastic.

    I too airbrush oils it gives a great finish on larger areas downside it it can take an age to harden off and be a bit vulnerable to touching...ie wear on high points but have had some good results with it......
