    Harley Quinn - Eaglemoss 90mm

    This looks really great. I like the highlights on her torax and the overall presentation is really outstanding.

    Autumn Bronzeleaf, Female Elf Wizard

    The figure is painted gorgeously, but the patina on the arch and the patterns on the columns are just breathtaking. :O

    Ouch my aching thumb!

    Excercise sometimes helps. Get one of those power grip gizmos from any sports store. They are cheap and should strenghten your hand muscles, making them less prone to cramping and numbness.

    Really nice figure. I like the look of the skin and the smoothness of the gradients. The overall color scheme works really well for the character, and the NMM onj the axe is masterfully done. If anything, I think maybe a higher contrast in the gradients painted on the axe would have made it visually more striking, but then again, the weapon might have looked as if recently forged instead of well-used.

    How do you TyeDye a mini ??

    Whimsical. Gaudy. I love it. The spiral pattern is downright hypnotic, as my sleep-deprived self found it hard to take the eyes off it to write this.

    My new group of miniatures

    Stunning work, VL. I like specially Elladan (awesome color pallette), the Elf General (stunning detail all around), the Blade Dancer (simply beautiful). The Half Orc rogue and Vulture I liked (for no particular reason) and the Girl Witch was just so cute...

    Ral Partha half orc thief from Julie Guthrie

    Really nice skin tones on that one. The gear seems very detailed and I just like the sculpt very much. Good work. When was this set released?
  9. I think it depends on what you are painting, actually. Some figures are sculpted with areas that are not very easily accesible and that usually go in darker colors, so the smart thing to do is paint the dark shades first and then work your way through the highlights. An approach that I find useful fo smoothing the color transitions is to go first from dark to light, and then work my way back from light to dark, thus obtaining a consistent gradient.

    Bourbon Street Sophie

    Really gorgeous Flynn, love the face and the skin looks so smooth and silky. I think Sophie looks really good as a blonde, and the base is also very nicely done.

    Astrid and Arran

    VL, You are the Mastah! That elf is just gorgeous, I have not seen anything that inspired in months. Makes me want to pick a brush again.

    Thinning Paint and Layering

    I don't do wetblending conciously. I always describe what I do as layering, but I find that as I approach the results I'm shooting for, my technique shifts to what you might call wet-layering, but really is just an effort to smooth the transitions by applying small glazes of the color mixes involved.

    Thinning Paint and Layering

    I cannot always see a difference between the hues I use for a gradient. what I know is what color I have at each extreme of it, and that roughly a third of the gradient area is a mix of 50/50 of those extreme hues. Then I start adding more of each color to the middle hue and do geometrically thin strips along the parts where the previous colors meet until it all looks like a continuous shift in color. Not sure if it makes sense to you.

    Wooden display bases

    I also use inks and paint washes to stain wood bases. Works well enough, and I like the fact that they are water based.

    What's been keeping you from painting?

    What's been keeping me from painting is the absolute mess my work area is at the time. I have piles upon piles of cardboard boxes, discarded blister packs and Star Wars figures all over the place.
