Well finished the mage, trying out some test models with more high elves, was thinking about this as a 2nd project to bounce between chaos and these. We'll see ^^ enjoy !

Beautiful work moo! I love the freehand on the back of the cloak, very nice addition to the piece. My only quibble, and this may be photographic, is that the white on the sleeves in the rear shot, doesn't seem as well defined as the white in the robe in the front shot. Seems like it needs a bit more shading to match the contrasts you achieved on the robe. Still it is an awesome looking model!

You do know I wish to break your fingers when I see stuff like this... LOL...

I have two questions though...

1). Why are you not doing this full time as you have the ability!

2). The only slight and I mean beyond slight crticism I can make on any of your work is along the lines of the shadow on the cloak from behind with the design but thats like being critical beyond reproach.... and it is not worth noting.

Your far too good not to be doing this or making thousands by selling stuff.

Thanks for the comments and criticisms guys btw to all who do watch this thread, please don't feel like you can't criticise my painting as it's the only way I can really get better. Doesn't matter if you're a golden demon winner or a beginner i appreciate all comments so don't hesitate !

Also as for full time painting, a few reasons really;-

1.) I want to keep it a hobby and have fun with it rather than earning money, I don't want to have it feel like a chore or a job.
2.) I get bored easily so i could never paint a whole army
3.) I earn a good wage with my current job and is probably more than the average commission painter (plus I actually enjoy my current job)
4.) I want a decent amount of money to fund my hobby
5.) I paint too slowly to do proper commission work
6.) I generally keep most of the stuff I do so I find it hard to let a commission piece go once i've done it. (Good thing i've only ever done 1 commission piece)
