Welcome to intro to airbrushing by Noah Elias. This masterclass will provide you the fundamental foundation instruction to build a life of creativity in strength and confidence.
The airbrush is one of the most powerful creative weapons to create images and tell stories. In my 30 year career, I rarely come across an artist that knows how to use this tool the correct way and how it was designed to be used.
This tool single-handedly has helped me create a thriving career generating millions of dollars in sales from art. My goal with this masterclass is focused on helping you become the best artist as fast as possible while having a blast in learning.
What to expect: this course will reveal the bad habits you need to get rid of and what to look out for. You will be exposed to all the best practice drills and steps to be able to paint freehand with ease and confidence. No longer will the airbrush be running you. Using the airbrush will become second nature.
A word from your Instructor: Every artist starts their journey with the foundation of their technique. I meet so many artists who guess at which airbrush to buy and then think they can figure airbrushing out on their own. In a short while, their airbrush clogs, their art doesn’t look like what they wanted and the equipment ends up collecting dust in the garage. Sound familiar?
If you’ve been airbrushing a while and your stuck or frustrated, let’s unleash your potential.
If you’re just beginning and starting your journey, let’s get you started on the right path and foundation!

Welcome to intro to How to Paint Realistic Florals by Noah Elias. This masterclass will provide you the fast-track skills to create jaw-dropping flowers. These techniques can be applied whether you use pencils, charcoal, oils or acrylics. However, my main approach and medium is airbrush so you will be seeing my formula and step by step approach.
What to expect: When I was younger I would spend time in my Grandmothers rose garden. I decided one day to photograph the inside of a rose. I wanted the images to be larger than life but almost like you were a bug living inside one of these majestic creations.
This masterclass will reveal my approach to lighting and shadows with just a couple of colors. You will be watching over my shoulder during one of my real-life commissioned paintings. You will then have the chance to apply this same technique in your own project. Below, you will find a comprehensive list which includes all materials needed to accomplish this project in your own studio.
Don’t have any materials yet? Don’t worry, I have you handled. Just read below and you can order your materials from the right sources. I would watch the masterclass a few times to gain insight into what you are going to be needing. Then, order the needed paints and material to then rewatch and do it step by step with me. We can do this together and go at your pace! This will provide you with peace of mind and confidence.
A word from Noah: I once had a student ask, “How do you paint water? I had to confess to him that I don’t paint water; I paint what I see in the image. Just shapes and values. After a while, it looks like water, a flower or a face.
My friend, If you have been looking to learn tricks and special effects with your painting, you’ve arrived at the right place. In this masterclass, you’ll understand flowers and how to create them out of thin air. (excuse the pun)
*Note: If you are a beginner I would encourage you to first take the Intro To Airbrushing course to get your fundamentals down to ensure your confidence when attempting to dive into these techniques. However, you might just want to sit back and watch to gain an understanding of what’s needed to achieve this level of execution.
Pro tip: The key to this technique is to look and match your reference. Matching the lighting patterns and shadows is paramount to the realism of the image. If you guess and “make up” random strokes you can easily cancel out the believability of your work.

Welcome to intro to How to Paint Realistic Black and White Portraits by Noah Elias. This masterclass will provide you with the inside look at how I create photo-real portraits with just three colors. If you are just a beginner or intermediate level, this masterclass will help refine your approach to becoming advanced. My goal is to get you painting photo-real as soon as possible and the sky is the limit for you!
What to expect: I highly encourage my students to learn how to paint monochromatic images and black and white before attempting to paint color. This allows you to nail realism and believability before attempting color mixing. I believe that nailing realism is first priority and where we can break all bad habits.
This masterclass will reveal my approach to lighting and shadows with just a couple of colors. You will be watching over my shoulder during one of my real-life commissioned paintings. You will then have the chance to apply this same.
A word from Noah:
*Note: If you are a beginner I would encourage you to first take the Intro to Airbrushing course to get your fundamentals down to ensure your confidence when attempting to dive into portraits. This masterclass is for those that have mastered the fundamentals and are ready to take their skills to the next level. However, you might just want to sit back and watch to gain an understanding of what’s needed to achieve this level of execution. You will also have a great deal of insight as to what is needed when you decide to do your first portrait.
Pro tip: The key to this technique is to look and match your reference. Matching the lighting patterns and shadows is paramount to the realism of the figure. If you guess and “make up” the strokes, you can easily cancel out the believability of your work.
