  1. So hear is a loaded cannon for every one; How do you paint fabric to make it look realistic. I personally tend to build up many layers of highlights and shadows and that how I do fabric, I may free hand a designee on but that really about it. I've notice wile going threw some of last years winners for reaper con that some of the fabric was painted in a almost stippled effect and it look more like a hand stitched/hand made dress or tabard. I have been trying to replicate this with no avail what so ever and going back threw old work I seem to have gotten something close back when I was learning to paint and I have no idea what I did to get that textured look. Any advice out there on how to get this look?
  2. Need painting tips!

    Hey guys! So, I'm 100% new to the mini scene, and finally getting into it after I've wanted to for so long. I, probably very stupidly, went to Games Workshop and bought a Galadhrim Warriors set from the LOTR series, and a couple paints to get myself started. The problem is they are insanely expensive and I know I can find cheaper stuff and even better quality. I'm on a college budget and would love to know where I can find a really good starter paint set with good brushes and paints that will last. Does anyone have any suggestions? And any other tips or advice you have for me as a newbie please let me know! I've already painted like 4 of my minis (Very horribly), so I may post them later.
