The real challenge to airbrushing is to make the masks (frisket). This takes most of the time. You can also buy premade masks (If you like skulls!) and templates at an airbrush store.
If you have had some art training, and understand shading, airbrushing is a complete joy!
Since you don't need too many SCFM for airbrushing, a large compressor is not necessary. I've seen small ones for less than $100. If it's noisy, get a longer hose.
One friend of mine made due with a scuba tank with an regulator on top!
