Welcome! This is my first thread here, and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone for the knowledge and inspiration that I have already received from this site. I painted some when I was in college about 20 years ago. Mostly GW stuff as it was easily obtained. Most of it was fairly flat. No wash, layering, glazes, ... However, I did do a little with drybrushing. The back of the cloaks on the Wood Elf Wayfinders very much screamed for drybrushing. I've spent my last few months getting an area in my garage cleared for me to paint., as well as picking up a few supplies. Most of my GW paints had dried out. At least one ones in the pots. I still have a few of the bottles that they used before the pots that still have usable paint in them. Most of my paints are the hobby paints that you can pick up at Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, Michael's. I got some paints someone was throwing out, so .... cheap. My one lamp (swing arm with magnifying lens) I also got because someone was throwing it out (they claimed it didn't work. Simple bulb change fixed that). This last week I have been putzing about with my camera (Polaroid i256 I think. Nothing special). I have been trying to figure out how to get a good picture, and keep the size of the picture down. So, let's see how I did. Living Elemental © Wizkids Not much so far. Just the basecoating. I'm looking to blend color into the "branches" for lack of a better word. I'm looking to have them be lighter at the tops as they should have the least growth/weathering. At least as I see it. Skeleton Archer © Wizkids I've noticed that I missed some armor on the left leg, as well as a spot on the box (visible from the back). I plan on adding metal to the armor at the ends, but feel that it should be mostly leather. I plan on doing the cape in blue and the fletches in red. The cape I want to blend into a dark brown/black at the bottom to give the idea of it being worn and used over the decades. Wood Golem © Wizkids I picked this because I thought it would be fun, and because of the contrast to be had between the bark and the exposed parts where it looks like it has been cut. I want to get a wash on those parts to try and show off the rings. I also want to do an overbrush on the bark to try and darken that up some. Potbellied Gremlin © Wizkids Nothing here yet. I was working with browns the other day and that just doesn't fit in yet. For whatever reason, I see this guy as a bit of a diseased creature, and am looking to work with a lot of glazing with yellows, brows, and greens. All of these pics are just the front photo. I have side and rear pictures as well that can be found in the link in my signature. The WIP pictures should all be around 60-70kb to fit the WIP guideline of 150kb. If you venture off into the Miscellaneous section, those pictures might be a bit larger (~500kb). But, you can look at my workspace (such as it is), lightbox, paints, brushes, and bitboxes. Thanks for your time. Any and all critiques are welcome. How else am I to learn?
