  1.  

     

    Noo, I mean the Stem is long, The brush is a good 10 inches long, not including the furrow and brush area thingy. It's a small bright round brush.

     

     

    Oddly enouph MissMelons I started useing long handled brushes when I first started and would use that extra length to stablize it agianst my cheek (weird right) but I came to prefer them I have some short handled ones now and I am wobbling between them. I still like the long handled ones though.

  2. Well Oneboot keep going yeah it might seem to be a boring drag now but if you jump from climax to climax with no build-up or letdown between them then the story becomes flat and boring because there is nothing to catch the reader's imagination. So if you are stumped because youthink what you are writing is slow and boring and want to make it more exiting wait till you d evise it for the first or second time because at that point you will know what you need a bit better and can develop a balanced contrast between the action bits and the places where characters and readers can catch their breath. Imagian a mini painted all bright red its exiting for a moment but then it becomes very boring but if you contrast that bright red with blues and purples even though they don't have the visual impact of bright red the piece becomes much more exiting. Also i never re-read my stuff till I'm done. Keep in mind I am not a pro writer nor even always have good gramer (hush) so take this advice for what you will. Good luck Oneboot and have fun with it.

     

    (Added to complete thought) and keep in mind that I am posting this when I could have been writing in my story.

  3. @OneBoot if you have an outlet nearby you can grab one two or more desk lamps for better more focused lighing and if they are tall and flexible enouph you can use them as light sources for your light box.

     

    I to am in the my desk is my computer desk reading space writing space craft and painting space as well as my roleplaying setup (looking though rule books and what not) dinner table photo booth blah it gets really cluttered and since it used to be my girlfriends desk it no longer has the roll out keyboard thing. For lighting I have two desk lamps one of the snake neck type and the other of the clamp onto something with a snake neck type. I cant recomend the second one its hard to get the light where I need it and it tends to slip.

  4. I figure that I will place her in the show off thread to get some more feedback about her I tried a few new things with her and over all I am pleased but I would like to hear what you think about her. Yes she was part of my Terrifing fall contest entery. Comments and Critisisms welcome encouraged.

  5. Well on Elise, The Witch I decided despite the short time period that I would do her stockings sheer I dont know how well I will do thin it but I will try and attempt to finish her in time.

     

    The base coat on her stockings is err MSP sample I really wish those things had an acual name I love getting them but its hard to know what to put here or look for without a name.

  6. So on one of my minitures I would like to attempt one technique but while I have seem some how to videos on it I dont know if I will be able to pull it off to the point I would want to do it on my mini wich is part of a contest entery. So I was wondering how do you practice a technique when the only mini that you can or want to use it on is something that you dont want to screw up wether it is for a contest or just a timeline on a pc that you need to put on the table.

  7. Well I have finished my first entery for this contest Miss Gorganzola. I really kind of enjoyed painting her and hope that she looks as good on the forum as I think she dose lol. I used paint to crop the pic down to just the mini and then used micorsoft office pic manager to "auto-correct" and compress the pics for the light box i used a cardboard box that I took the top and side off of.

     

    Well let me know what you think about her. I have included quite a few views of her so enjoy.
