Ok so I'm not sure how useful this  will be but here goes.


I've always thought it was sort of annoying to go searching around the internet, or even CMON for tutorials. About anything- from basing the feathering, blending the painting fleshtones. So here's what I have, and have organized into a hopefully useful resource. Feedback would really be appreciated!

ase feel free to add. Of note, I find the leaves and vegetation tut to be a very


good advanced article. So... more in my next post.

I should have been more clear. This is mainly meant for beginners who don't really know what's what and where's where. I know when I started out I'd have loved a big, categorically organized, page of tuts. If I want to quickly scan through tutorials, I can just go to a page like this and without opening several tabs of different sites, just browse with ease.

There's an excellent basing tutorial I had found and bookmarked, only to have windows re-installed on me.


I believe it was on a Lord of the Rings forum, and he explained how to create basing items from ordinary household items, like foam and soap brushes.
