    Hey guys I have a question. My parents and family have been asking what i want for Christmas and I was either considering an airbrush or a set of Prismacolor markers. My ? is are airbrush machines worth it for drawing on paper/canvas or whatever and doing graffiti on paper type material? Which would you pick

    An airbrush would be a lot harder to "obtain" than markers. So go with the airbrush.

    Also, there are better markers than prismas....copics for example. They are refillable, you can mix your own colors up, annnnndddd they have a kit to convert the markers into an airbrush as well. Very pricey though.

    well im guessing you are under 12 if they are asking what you want for christmas


    but id go with prismas because i have an airbrush and it is a pain in the ass cuz you have to clean it after every color

    how much are airbrushes? Like decent ones. Can some one make some recomendations, Im thinking about buying one after I get a job.
     
  8. when you buy an airbrush its more than just an airbrush. you need paints, air hoses, a compressor or aerosol cans filled with compressed air. its a very expensive and messy tool.

    however, some brands... Badger, Paasche. Badger's are good to learn on, Paasche's seem to be for more detailed work, though you can get most of the same effects from Badger, and if memory serves correct, Badger costs a bit less generally.
    check out google for prices, search those brands or "airbrush" or something.

    Don't get the air brush

    Chances are it'll just collect dust after one use.

    ( I'm old as fuck and I still sneak around to see what I'm getting for Christmas)

    get an air brush, and with an air brush you can make money like,doing peoples shoes and tee shirts...prismas you cant,only good for sketch books,and some good co. are badger,iwata.but your gonna end up gettin cheap one first,cause your parents arent gonna buy you a 300 dollar brush unless you used em before
