  1. Hey Shadowphaze, sorry you thought I wasn't interested in teaching the NMM class, but I can assure you that was not the case. Teaching is something that I really love to do and I am always open to valuable feedback. If you have any suggestions for making my classes better, I am all ears. Please feel free to email me at [email protected] I appreciate your feedback! Hope you feel better, con crud sucks!
  2. My journey to ReaperCon starts today! Can't wait to see everybody! Especially Ron cuz he's a sexy beast! LOL
  3. Ha ha! Well, anyone who knows me knows that im the worst at remembering names! I'm 99% positive that I might be able to remember 2 new names LOL. Now if I can switch to nicknames, we could up that number to say....17 :)
  4. I am so freakin excited to be coming to ReaperCon this year! I can't wait to see old friends and even make 2 New friends! Anyways, see you all in a week! Prepare to get your "paint on". ps: I really want to go to Texas Land and Cattle for dinner one night...let's make that happen. It could be a Reaper takeover!
  5. great pics! Soooooooooo wish i was there...

  8. Using a wet palette takes some getting used to. That being said, I won't paint without one! Parchment paper works best as it doesn't allow water through but keeps your paint workable for a long time. Wax paper will work in a pinch but does let water through and thus does not let you have full control over your paint consistency. Also over time the wax paper will break down and you will have tiny flecks of wax in your paint....this is really bad and hard to fix once dried on your model! If you go with a mastersons palette, don't use their paper either as is let's watter threw very quickly
  9. Me neither...I leave at 1:27 on united
  10. Me too...in Denver right now!
  11. I hope sooooooooooooooooo!
  12. im not a huge fan of the green cape...that being said the nnm is just awesome! And I love that you put some purple into the skin and rocks...it compliments the nnm gold quite nicely! Great use of color for sure. Now just work some more on your blending and you'll be made in the shade!!!
  13. Great colors! Really good fig!
  14. Preparing minis for my Reapercon classes!

  15. Hopefully by the time I leave for Reapercon! The elbow is actually a painting injury...so I'm not sue it will get better. But thanks for the well wishes anyways!
  16. Very nice!!! I like the building behind them as well!!
  17. @ Heisler: Your correct! But I just wanted to beat the snot outta that dread! @ Shortbeard...who's name would be much better if it was....Shortbread!!!: Be careful what you wish for... To everyone else, thanks for the comments...I know I haven't posted in a long time and mainly thats because, I have been so busy...every job has some crazy deadline and there is just no time for photos these days! At least not good ones. I'm nursing a very sore elbow right now though so maybe you will see a bit more outta me as I have had to slow my painting down to a snails pace...
  18. Very nice! You have really developed into quite a painter...I always enjoy looking at your work!
  19. Beautiful piece! Great use of color to help focus the mini!
  20. Inspired by the tank I decided to finish up some of my Ultra Marine vehicles...Here is my first one completed. As you can see he has been to hell and back literally!! The techniques for this one are different than the Land Raider but with similar results. I know that not everyone likes a heavily weathered tank but after painting literally hundreds of prestine looking vehicles...I was definitely ready for a change!!
  21. Hey guys, here is a commission I did recently for a guy in Germany. If you are on my facebook page you have no doubt seen the work in progress shots...it was an adventure! I would highly recommend the videos by Mig Jeminez. His new company is AK Interactive and they make some wicked videos on weathering and finishing vehicles. If you are inventive, you will think of ways to incorporate some of his techniques back into miniature painting as well...just keep and open mind. My customer wanted an Ultra Marine Land Raider Achilles battle tank but he wanted it to look like it had been in ba
