    Looks like green has been done

    Though if you look at the before shots with no paint on the model, those green bits are filler. Just goes to show how much correction and interpretation you have to do before even the undercoat is applied. Working with these, otherwise excellent, miniatures was what prompted me to invest in a small soldering iron (which for those with a twang is not called "soddering" ).
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Oh now this is art

    I only wish that I could paint that good

    Damn nice colour selection and yet I think it lacks something... some panache...

    Well I've found my guide. BrushThralls.com - Home looks like the place for all guides on painting. They're still painting them turquoise but at least they're doing it well.

    You think I have no idea about washes, etc.? Puhleez. As far as three dimensions goes, try making something look 3D using the 2D medium of tattooing on a 3D surface [usually a squirming drunken frat/sorority body] if you want a bit of a challenge. :rolli:

    For 2D I always preferred charcoal or graphite myself.

    Edit :-
    Hang on one cotton picking minute..... JUST paint? JUST paint???? :steam:
    IF I recall right you were explaining the process of selecting paper once. JUST paint?? Frickin hypocrite sez I!!
    Yeah, it's just paint. And it's just fucking paper.

    Having extensive knowledge about materials doesn't mean I have any particular preference -- it simply means I can comfortably work with whatever is around because I'm aware of its limitations and possibilites.

    So fuck off and go fingerpaint yer little trolli-poo dollies, kthx.




    are you fucking married yet, btw?

    Bingo. Same in colour and effect. that was my point. To get the effect of making skin look natural but without painting it some form of pink requires the correct choice of colour.

    Pah! You won't find me rolling in matt to create my next masterpiece. I'm a craftsman if anything. You couldn't pay me enough to be an "artiste"

    Yeah well I sucked too about 15 years ago when I started... thinking about it.. it's gotta been longer than that. It's Dom's fault I started. Only after this long did a few people point out a few obvious truths and now I'm a lot more confident but unfortunately no more motivated *sigh*
