Thank you boys I hope this painting skill is not my final station, since I am trying to learn more techniques, painting interesting minis - which all together can make my painting results better. So I think my present skill is nothing special, anyone can reach it. So, STATIC, go on, enter the competition! It's not important if you win or not - you will see other painter's work, you can talk to them and it will inspire you much, push you forward. It's just up to you to make first step

Another prove of no-progress from last days... Finished leather top, but lot of work to do... I thought I can finish him until tomorrow for another local competition, but no way... Maybe next time...

Finished leather strips on armour and that shirt-sleeves. I can proceed to hair & skin, but still in deep crisis after illness, feel nothing about miniatures or painting right now.

After some (long) time, yesterday I took modelling knife, saw, driller and glue and put together and converted some minis - Scibor's moscal shamans (to try monochrome techniques on it), Scibor's Strielecs (to use it as W40K Imperial Guard Ratling Snipers) and Wyrd's Bishop (to use it as Tick-Tock-Man or Andrew Quic for Dark Tower Chronicles). Yesterday built and converted, today primed

I had wonderfull weekend and today I finally spent some time painting. I started to work on Scibor's Halloween Special. Trying to paint in monochrome style according to olde-style-horror-movies (used just about 4 colours). It's heavy W.I.P., I want to give the pumpkin completelly different look&feel...

Looking great. That standard bearer is a great model!

For the pumpkins, go for a nice bright orange, but then tone it down with some brown washes to tie it into the model. That way it will stand out without being too differnt.

I normally don't do that, but I was finishing and photographing Halloweenstein in night under lamp-light and didn't notice that the cloak was not painted well. So yesterday I tried to make it smoother and photographed again...
