I just created an account to say Thank You for this Buglips!

 

I've never painted a mini in my life, picked up the LTPK's that are available and the Bones from KS1 that look interesting, and I'm planning to start learning to paint in a couple of weeks. This thread is already very helpful to me as a complete amateur, and I look forward to it and any more you might do.

Thanks, Bugs. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread also.

On a fundamental level, every single technique is either one of these or evolved from one of these. They define as follows:

i disagree, but i suppose that could depend on your use of the term "technique" and how broadly you define each step of the axis.

for example:

Airbrushing: not really described well by any particular point of the axis. has its own characteristics.

dry pigments: drier than drybrushing. considerably different than wet paints in use.

scumbling: definitely a technique, but not really derivative of the paint moisture axis.

stippling: again, a "technique." similar to layering in terms of paint consistency but far different from conventional layering in terms of execution, outcome and application.

crackle & chipping: paint removal techniques

etc.

 

still, i find your analysis of drybrushing quite informative; it is a technique i only use occasionally and very crudely. i look forward to learning more from the mind of Buglips.

I'm just shocked Buglips knows the word scrubbing, let alone anything about it.....

Of course a goblin knows about scrubbing! It's what happens when you take a handfull of **** and scrub it into the walls so place smells like home!

 

I definately like the way Buglips has presented the information though, straightforward and easily understandable. For something that came from a tangerine humanoid.
