mathewbaich Posted September 27, 2010 Share Posted September 27, 2010 ok, here's a review for anyone interested in natalya melnik's DVD set. initial thoughts: wow lots of DVDs! there must be lots of info on these! well we'll see when we watch. I whole mini from start to finish recorded, interesting! 15 hours of info! still have me interested! lets bust the shrink wrap and get started! initial quality: great quality! great timing on the translations! and awesome music! after 2 hours of watching and random skipping around: mmm...not really getting much out of this, she states what she uses like countless "other" tutorials but gives no reason as to 'why' she uses what she uses. she stated that she uses milliput to "smooth out the surface of the mini" not too much good info so far unless you're a painter that uses verbatim recipes. after watching the whole thing: not very impressed...she doesn't really 'teach' much other than "this is how I paint, watch me do it". I honestly had to speed up the "paint a whole mini on this DVD set" as it was a total snooze fest. I even had to speed up the already sped up footage to not fall asleep. final thoughts: I didn't really get much out of this DVD set and I'm kinda disappointed honestly. sure there's 5 DVDs but a good chunk is taken up with the paint-a-mini thing. maybe it's just because I've seen just about every tutorial and trick in this hobby but I didn't gain much from it. I'd recommend this set for anyone that can learn from pure observation with no actual teaching involved. sorry if this seems harsh but that's how I feel. enjoy for those that can. ~Mathew Baich~ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
