    Let's make a present ... female Roman Centurion

    Well, I am done for today. In all ways possible. In short: Once again it's blotchy, its messy and it's not what I wanted or what makes me happy. The moment I was forced to lay aside the airbrush to continue with the brush, desaster struck (as always). Couldn't get the consistency I wanted. Once I thought it was right, color started to run everywhere other than the place it was supposed to be, so I put in some more colour, which made it too thick. On the other hand, I had to put on so many layers to cover up that already lost a lot of details. And even then the color, especially of the skin, doesn't look right. I don't know what the problem is. I don't understand it. I lost more and more motivation up to the point that I was completely done and decided I would never again take up a brush. I guess having been in the situation I was in and then being forced to lay aside the brush for almost two years was just too long for me, and all those "breaks" I was suggested over and over again have severed my connection to the joy of painting. And after she fell into the brush cleaning water (putting her aside to take up a tank), which left her breaking apart the stand (!!) she was on, I finally understood that I wouldn't have any chance of going any further. So I quit. At least for today. Tomorrow I will check what is salvageable. If she's ruined to the point that I cannot correct the mistake, I will really think about selling all my painting stuff and never do a miniature again. I had too many setbacks in the last two years and since then I didn't see any progress to at least back to what I was able to do, so there is no sense in continuing for me. And currently my frustration is at a point where it affects my happiness as well as my spare time. And now I will read Oh! My Goddess - trying to ease my soul ... and after that I will find someone to eat.

    Let's make a present ... female Roman Centurion

    Well, It can't be helped. I have to start. Well then. Let's whip out the airbrush and do the thing. For the time being, I plan to go with a look like Livia/Eve from the Xena franchise. Though I know that Adrienne Wilkinson has a more caucasic skin, I will try to do a more bronze style skin. Like romans. So I choose a slightly overexposed picture for reference so all the colours will pop out more. And as I will start with the skin, my colours of choice will be: Game Color Tan als Shadows Model Colour Salmon Rose as base And Game colour Off White, mixed with Salmon Rose for the highlights. Any further thoughts?

    Then his bone-chilling, unearthly voice roars from deep down his throat: "Oh, Boy! Look what I got! Can you believe that? It was on sale! just a couple of silver coins! That's what I call cheap!" And you know he is right. Bren, the weaponsmith, always had the best summer sales in Neverland ...

    I'm afraid I've got to go now, Dave ... When I first watched them movie, that voice really creeped me out ... and inspired me when I was looking for a great A.I. character for one of my stories.

    Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    Back from Tokyo, which means ... yay ... I've got a lot of stuff. So, let's have a look. I got me some materials. At that time it was pretty cheap in comparison to some stuff I can get in Germany, so I had to get it. And, of course ... some miniatures. This time emphasis was laid on the KanColle miniatures. I don't like the game, but I like the minis. The rest was some random stuff I liked. (Of course some Valkyria Chronicles) And now that we have got all the references, there are, of course, some kits for self assembly and painting ... Seeing @Auberonpainting his garage kit made me think of getting some cheap models myself for trying some new airbrush techniques. Which brings me to the greatest catch I made. A 1/350 scale model of battleship Yamato. Normally you can get it in Germany for like 150 Euro. I got it for the equivalent of 25. Just because it was second hand and the manual was missing. Checked before I bought ... looked okay to me. So I bought it and downloaded the manual. Perfect. What else have we got? Some random stuff like sleeping masks ... A new poster for my room And when I came back I noticed that in the meantime some packages had assembled at my room, containing ... some really cheap second hand kingdom death miniatures and some buildings for Infinity. Which leaves only one problem ... I need space.

    Plastic Model Kits

    So, from what my friend told me, he never painted any joints or movable parts. He mostly painted around them and "hid" them by weathering all the other parts and focussing the attention of the viewer away from those parts. Nonetheless he said that if you want to paint the joints, the best way to go is to paint all the parts by airbrush before assembly and seal them using some coat. He further suggests to check youtube tutorials for assembly and painting of gundams. I haven't had the time to check yet, but if you want me to, I can have a look if I find something regarding the painting of the joints. His experience with those Gundam markers was bad until now, but he said the fineliners are pretty good.

    I don't build gundams, but I know some people who do. I'll try to find an answer for you. Gimme a few hours
