  1. Tossing this out there, unsure of the appropriate forum board to use. It's probably unimportant, but I'm wondering how to describe myself as a miniature painter. I started this hobby one year ago and since then my profile has described me as a painting newbie. I no longer think of myself as such having painted probably 25-30 figures since then, watched hours of YouTube tutorials, purchased and watched Jen Haley's DVD, posed questions on the forums and had them answered, learned how to prep, prime, base, drybrush, wash, and highlight. So, what level painter am I? I thought about graduating to myself from newbie to novice based upon the one year, but rate of painting applies. The first six months I didn't paint at all, being petrified of making mistakes. It took me that long to make a few attempts and gradually I got more and more confident. Should painting level be based on: Number of years as a miniature painter. Number of actual miniatures painted. Mastery of certain painting skills (drybrushing, highlighting, etc). Sheer awesomeness of finished results Other? In AD&D, 1E that I grew up playing, every level had a title. You graduated from title to title. Take the thief for example: Level 1: Rogue 2: Footpad 3: Cutpurse 4: Robber 5: Burglar 6: Filcher 7: Sharper 8: Magsman? WTH? 9: Thief 10: Master Thief I wondered if it would be productive to create a universal system here for newcomers to use to describe themselves. Level 1: Newbie 2: Novice 5: Veteran 6: Advanced 7: Teacher 8: Work for commission 9: Professional 10: Bob Ross Maybe that's too complex and there should only be five levels rather than ten. Anyway, I'm graduating myself from newbie to novice, but I no longer feel like a novice. I'm not sure I've earned the title of veteran, either, so I'm somewhere in between whatever that is. Thoughts?
