  1. More Massive. More Darkness.

    really great work on both of these, ghool. super clean with beautiful color work and detail.
  2. My Sir For Scale

    boooooooooo! how big is this? can't tell without the wizard.
  3. wet palette

    i can't vouch for how long my DIY WP will hold paints or say what works best. i can only say that my setup was $5, and that i can spend 10 mins mixing and thinning 20 different colors, and they will all stay perfectly consistent for up to 6 hours. i can barely keep 3 colors usable at the same time on a dry palette without putting half the paint pot in there. i should say that i still make glazes in a dry palette, but i don't know if i have to do that or not. i suspect that i don't.

    there's not much going on face-wise, just a little shading in the eye sockets. i very much did NOT want his face to draw attention. that's why one wears a hood, is it not?
  5. wet palette

    i don't store the paint. i toss it after every painting session, which is usually 4-6 hours. i don't have a lid on my palette because i don't store the paint. why would it take 15 minutes to pour the water into the sink, throw the towel and parchment into the garbage, then rinse and dry the tray? i've never even had paint touch the tray. this description doesn't even resemble my experience with WP's and is exactly the kind of post that scared me off in the first place. every discussion of WP's turns into this and i think maybe it's because 50 people have 50 different WP setups, some inevitably wetter, drier, or just better than the others. i wouldn't say everyone should use one. i would say, and am in fact saying, that everyone should try one.

    enjoying the feedback, guys. i guess i really just wanted to emphasize to people who are relatively new that the WP is more than just a potential quality-of-life improvement, for me at least. i think i paint better with it. i know i'm more patient with layering, and i know i can get a cleaner, faster base coat down since all my colors are still there and usable. i guess i could see how a WP might not help a brand new painter, but i think with a half dozen or so minis under your belt, it's definitely worth a try. i think i was put off for this long by people talking about mold issues, but i'd eat a chicken fried steak off mine. i'm not over here with a sponge that never dries, trying to keep paint up for a week. you feel me?
  7. wet palette

    so i switched to a homemade wet palette recently. it cost me $5, sets up in 3 minutes, cleans up in 1 minute, holds about 20 different paints for 4+ hours, speeds up my painting by 100% at least, and lets me spend most of my time painting, which i like, instead of mixing and remixing paint, which i don't. it's a tray, a paper towel folded in half, and some parchment paper with the sides folded under. add water. why isn't this virtually mandatory? seems like wet palette discussion comes around to personal taste, or climate, or something else, but it changed my life, damnit. is there actually a downside that i haven't found yet? it's easier to clean and use than my dry palette, by a mile.
  8. a quick paint for one of my pc's. i wanted to remove the base but maybe not the best idea given how much point of contact there is on this model. kept it simple and i'm pretty happy with the cloak in particular. non-base-related c&c welcome. cheers.
  9. Scarecrow

    wow, this is the perfect model to show off your fantastic weathering.
  10. Pigfaced Orc w/ Sword

    this guy gets it. we don't say "pigfaced" anymore. that's a pejorative.
  11. Savonarola - Fire Mage

    damn, that's spicy. i better sleep in a chair tonight.
  12. 02340: Unthar Godshand

    so this is my friend's PC, which i repainted because i wasn't happy with my first effort, and i have to see it every week. i'll post a side-by-side, and i'd love some feedback because i'm not 100% sure i improved it. i guess maybe i think it's a bit cleaner and the colors are better, but i'm starting to wish i'd painted the inside of the cloak a different color like i did the first time. brown cloak is my first effort, and red is my second.
  13. this model whooped me a little and i rushed it off my bench to meet a game deadline on another model, but i couldn't find a painted version of this mini so ... bon appetit!
  14. Frito the Thief, comparison between 1983 and 2017

    old version has sick acid washed jeans though, so NO PROGRESS AWARDED :)
  15. i hate to be the chump who posts immediately after kuro, but here goes anyway. this is the first mini i bought after 30 years of not touching a brush. i've been back for a year and it's been great, so i stripped and repainted this, my comeback mini. don't worry, i have photos of every mini i have ever ruined, so there will be no shortage when it's time to look back. hope you enjoy.
