SwedeMarine Until he does however i recommend Youtube. Djinn himself has a few videos there about painting and there is a plethora of tutorials that cater to beginner to intermediate painters. I spend hours looking at turorials and painting techniques for either ideas on a new technique or how to improve one i already have tried. For the absolute beginner getting the citaedl How to Paint guide is actually not a bad idea as it gives you the basics as well as some intermediate techniques to use.

Djinn24 I am actually planning on one day writing that book.

You realise im new to this whole painting thing. Im a bit baffled by wet blending, mixing retardents etc.
I need to find a painting for dummies tutorial.

Ive also been toying with this and since you actually have a surface that it can be applied easier to you may want to give it a go. Try using airbrush drying retarder instead of water when wet blending. Ive done a few trial runs and the paints behave similar to oils which from what I have seen is the best way to achieve a good wet blend technique. I dont have any pics of my trial but as soon as i get some ill post them up to sho
Thanks for the advise. Im tempted to mail them to djinn LoL! along with a Fire raptor haha!
