I am absolutely sure you are a competent painter. You teaching skills may be lacking though. Here are a couple of tips: I do not expect you to demonstrate your skill, I don't want you to demonstrate your technique, I want to learn your technique. I realize it may take several hours to complete what you are showing me, don't try to prove it in our short time. Use big models to demonstrate what you mean. No one can really see what you are doing to the 28mm figure from five feet away.. Get a big figure, like one of those eight inch toy soldiers and a 1/4" brush to demonstrate the way you apply paint to the folds in the cloth, and to point out how you look at the figure to determine where the light hits. Always have the students demonstrate the technique. Always give them a practice figure. Always provide all the materials they are going to use, so that you can control what they are doing. Think about how you say things. 'I paint the figure the same way I look at it' doesn't really tell me what you are doing. Don't bring 600 bottles of paint and four tool boxes to class and use only two things. Be prepared and use what you have prepared. Rehearse. I don't know if you get paid to teach, if Reaper gives you figures to demo on. Maybe its not worth it to you, if you don't want to do it, don't. I've had several great classes, some good classes and a couple bad classes. I appreciate the work that goes into the simplest of classes and how hard it is to explain something that has taken several years to learn. Thanks to you who teach well and thanks to you who try.
