  1. Well I finally found some Kolinsky sable brushes @ hobby lobby of all places!! They are called Masters Touch brushes multimedia. They look similar to the W&N series 7 miniature brushes so I decided to go ahead a pick them up. I mainly bought them instead of the W&N because I was able to actually see the tips and kind of test them out with some water. They really looked good without any paint on them but I was wondering if anyone else has tried these out?

  2. Well was gonna post a pic of MY most recent work, until I saw this and decided to throw him in the trash along with all my paints and used my brushes as kindling for the bar-b-que! well not really but thats what i wanted to do after seeing the quality of this piece. Im not a fan of GW sculpts but man does he look GOOOOD!!! How long did it take to paint from primer to dull cote??

  3. I just want some of the newer pieces to have the eyes sculpted a little smoother. Almost every piece I get has something wrong with its eyes!!! i would think that with the level of detail that they can put into a mini that they can do just as good with the eyes. not just an oval hole with a ball of putty in the middle. Since im still kind of a newbie at painting I need better eyes!!!

  4. DO NOT DO A BODY LIFT!!!! I cant stress how important it is not to do a body lift on a vehicle. If you really want to do a lift spend the extra time and money and do the suspension kit lift. When doing a body lift you weaken the contact points between the frame and the body of the vehicle this can actually cause a truck to break in half!! the Body can seperate from the frame during extreme duress or if not installed EXACTLY right under the stress of stop and go. Also when doing a body lift a serious 4x4 enthusiast can spot a body lift in a heartbeat. because the frame will stick out below farther than it should. you also dont get the same amount of ground clearance with a body lift that you do with a suspension. If all you want to do is slap some bigger tires on there you can accomplish that by cutting the wheel wells and adding bigger tires. wont look very good but you will get the same amount of lift at a much cheaper price. So get the suspension lift!! BTW I think that its a cool idea to lift it. will make it stand out from all the sport compacts out there!!!

  5. Nice work Frosh. i like the fact that she's not done up in dark colors like alot of people paint her. she's got that "good girl" look. very original IMHO. Her eyes are very captivating!! Can we get a few more shots, maybe one from the side that shows how you painted the broom?

  6. Thanks Anne! well I dont have those MS paints yet so i kinda went with something close. MSP muddy brown, then mixed some brown ink wash, and highlighted with MSP muddybrown/MSP pure white for a final highlight. I am pleased with the outcome. the mini doesnt have alot of reds in it only his vest (which i did darkline) so i wasnt to worried about the clash. Thanks for all your advise everyone.

  7. Lord!! that is just awsome!! the eyes are great. I have a hard time believing that this is only your 2nd mini. Only suggestion is on the feathers if you had a little bit thinner paint when you dry brushed them they wouldnt appear as chalky but other wise this is just wonderfull!

  8. im currently painting 2637: Marcus Starsong and ive hit a brick wall so to speak. My first problem is his staff i cant seem to find the right color combo for his wooden staff and was looking for some suggestions. My other big problem is about darklining. Marcus is wearing a both a shirt and vest, and I was wondering if i should darkline between the two or not. I know that you darkline between hair and skin, skin and armor etc.. but what about cloth and cloth??
