try to make better edges next time but a very good try overall. im not saying it just to make you feel better. many guys that are experienced sometimes mess up edges so dont worry about it all that much, just try for more crisp outlines if you want to get into body painting, get yourself some liquid mask. you just draw the decal on the overspray protection (outside of body), paint it on, hair-dry it, cut on the lines from the inside, remove excess and you have your mask. once you get used to it its easier that taping around curves. btw i like the colours you used. that combo always works really nice.

thanks for the color comment ice dude , i did use bob dively liquid mask, but, i did not know the paint i used was rotten and that my tip on my airbrush was bad, it made this spiderweb effect and it starting lifting off the liquid mask, being the first time every airbrushing i just thought some stupid spider went crazy on it . i ended up spend about 5 hrs scraping off the liquid mask because it had harded and would peel off

lol, check the tip of the airbrush for damage or dirt if it is sputtering. and how much air pressure where you using if it lifted the liquid mask off??!!!! normally nothing more than 35 psi should be needed for airbrushing!!! and make sure your color was reduced correctly. btw, the printed decal and then transferred to the body is another way of doing it. transferring, freehanding, whatever, i was just explaining the concept didnt know you already knew!!

Hey no problem, by the way the lines on the body came out, i would have guessed that i didnt know to do that either, i was using around 25 psi, and i did find a small tare in the needle
