And you painted this in super fast time. It took me a couple of weeks to paint a little storm talon.

Not a bad quota to be honest. My project log has 145 comments (including my own) and 5,946 views.

It all depends on what you want out of this sort of log. They can be incredibly constructive but it takes time to build up the interest

That just means you're reaching the point where there isn't much help we can give. You've improved enough that there isn't a lot, if anything, to tell you how to improve. This isn't a bad thing.

Always post your stuff up, it took me a little over 2 years to put up a project log, because I'm a procrastinator and because of excellent painters like yourself on heresy, to be honest I was intimidated, I thought who will be arsed looking at my basic painting and commenting, but I realized my limitations as a painter after stripping some models for the 5th time and said fuck it just paint to the best you can.

I'm a simple painter straight colors and a wash and dry brushing, and people can see that and offer critism based on that, I cannot blend, thin paint, free hand worth a fuck, you can, if folk are not giving you tips it is because there are none to give, this is heresy not facebook, do not post stuff up just to get likes, post it because this is a hobby community and you want to show off your work because you put time and effort in and want feed back on how to better, and as others have said if you are not getting it, then you are exceedind or equalling the skill of your peers.

I have 25 comments in my plog including my own and like 700 views, most of those comments are about some converting I did which was not very good in practice but not too shabby conceptually, hopefully someone will do a better job and post it up. Posting your work is like panning for gold, you may get fuck all, you may get loads the same comments or you may get that one nugget of critque thst unlocks an idea or puts you straight on something you missed or could improve, or never thought of, but the only way to find out is to put it up, keep posting mate, be a shame not to put that work on display.

thanks guys..i know what you say is true...i still have much to learn...and art is subjective..so i really do like to hear your opinions good or bad...maybe a coulour choice or combo you felt was wrong or could've been better...too much weathering not enough weathering etc...
cheers
