    Looks phenomenal!
  2. Bandit Bully: My first Mini

    Looks great! Who's to say he isn't wearing a black shirt? That's the beauty of painting, it is up to you how you want your mini to look. There is no "Right" or "Wrong" way!

    She is gorgeous! Very alluring dance.
  4. 77219: Grundor Hoardtaker

    Looks great! A red glaze is a great idea, I will need to try that.

    These are the places that I have traveled to, and fallen in love with. America: I just love how everything is so varied here. Where I am from, there is one way (more or less) of life. Here, people are different all over. There is so much diversity and so so so many delicious foods. My home is pretty homogeneous and decidedly monochromatic. South Africa: A fascinating mixture of European and African cultures, and the food is amazing. Japan: I don't think needs much explaining. It's another planet practically compared to anywhere else. And food of course. I see a theme here....

    Those colours are amazing! Stunning work.
  8. Progressing as a painter

    I can't add anything that hasn't been said already, but the one bit of advice that has helped me most is the simplest: Keep Painting. I am no master, but I think I have improved significantly since I began and I think each mini I have painted has taught me lessons about what I should or shouldn't do. Every mistake, which I always agonize over, is a lesson to learn from. Keep up the great work!

    What is this "Hair" you speak of? I started losing mine in my early 20's. Unlike most men, I didn't try and cling to it as it thinned. I waged a "scorched-earth" campaign and got rid of it all. Don't want to grow? FINE! I DON'T NEED YOU!!!!!! I'm not bitter or anything....

    Your metallics look great to me! I love the eyes too
  11. Beautiful work! Love that elf.

    Yes, Yes, and Yes. I should probably start painting again before I sleep. I usually read, but upon contemplation, I think I have actually slept better on those nights I paint right before bed...hmmmm....

    Welcome back! Those look great, especially after such a long hiatus.
  14. Volkor character S&S

    That is stunning work!

    First Mini: Ugh... Best: Both of these were painting several months after the first one. I can't decide between these two Why I Paint: Catharsis mainly. Painting for me is a form of meditation. I hyper-focus on the minutia of each brush stroke and shut off the rest of my brain. I don't think of anything else except of what is directly in front of me. It can sometimes be a little stressful, but in the end, when I have a mini I can be proud to display, the reward is immeasurable. To paraphrase Hemingway; I don't always enjoy painting, but I love having painted.
