    E: You never fail to impress me. The pigments really seem to be the source of such coloring. Your explanation made 100% sense to me.

    Yah, I'm going to experiment with this free blog and go from there. It's "free" and not too hard. This way I can keep track of what I've done. Maybe I'll figure out how to add pages, and put up galleries of my old stuff...

    One, I really tried out a new method. I was for the longest time sold on my past method of painting, the total leveling up of the paint, etc. However when deciding to get back into painting, I looked at some other's painting methods and studied them. I've already got a solid foundation, but now I wanted to expand my knowledge and potential as a miniature painter. Pretty much it boiled down to the quality of paint and in what form of suspension, and PATIENCE. Anyone who knows me, and how fast I used to paint, knows I have little patience. However, now adding in the ability to shade with glazes/washes in a controlled manner will actually INCREASE my painting time, and on some minis will make it turn out better looking. I'm not completely sold on my new method as it doesn't work with all colors/paint types, but I'm getting there. As with anything you do: with understand comes acceptance, and with acceptance, comes action. I just had to want to understand it and apply it until I figured it out myself.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure at all how it would turn out. I added the purple trim on the scale-mail to try and balance the colors out overall. The orc was an attempt at Con painting, and it's not quite up to that level for me yet.

    I still hate my frakkin goram camera! Anyway, it's all eye candy. Getting my paints on something at times. Doesn't feel too bad to be painting again. The Orc Butcher is an old Rackham piece, the paladin is for eBay this week, the High-Elf hero is a conversion for my D&D gaming group character, and the Rogue is for another player in my group. I really like painting up minis for the people in my group. Of course, the DM is no dummy, he keeps them... I've started "blogging" occasionally over here, so you can follow stuff if you wish at http://jestersminiaturestudios.blogspot.com/ Thanks! See y'all soon!

    Actually, I just tried swapping the light bulb that I was using, and it made all the difference in the world. I did try a couple of different backgrounds, but who knew it was the damn bulb? Granted my camera was ok bacy in 2004, but it suxxors these days.
  12. I'll be there, but not involved in any miniature-related activities this year.

    Damn my frakkin' camera, I still can't get it to take shots of blues correctly. This really has more cool tones than is coming across. Oh well, enjoy the latest mini.
