  1. Some wondered what mediums were being used. Jill Thompson is using watercolor. Bill (me) Reinhold is using ink and gouache, and Doug Klauba is using (I’m pretty sure) acrylics.

  2. Wonder musical score for this video. Thanks for sharing. I got some great painting techneques out of it. Thank you.

  3. I agree, it looked better in black and white. The color was cool too, but is hiding many of the finer lines. I am sure it looks better in person though. I love these ESP guitars though, even the stock guitars come with cool paint..

  4. @Fatalyze666 go for it mate. Got loads of airbrushing tutorials on my youtube channel if you want to give it a go. Good luck with it if you do.
