Raphael 8404 Brush Quality

Hey all. Was wondering if someone who's bought some Raphael 8404s recently could help me out. I bought a couple of their brushes many months back and they quickly lost their ability to hold a point. This was unexpected as older Raphaels I have still maintain a good point. Then I saw this: http://www...

Re: I still want to improve my painting.

Thanks for the feedback, Maru. I see what you mean about the cloak. I'll keep it in mind for next time. Heads, too. I was pretty happy with the base but I guess he could stand to be a little taller. I've got a guy with some basic plinths, though, so I'll be adding some in a while. The off compositio...

Re: I still want to improve my painting.

Hi all! Been a while since I was here. Unfortunately college and life got in the way and I haven't been painting a lot of better pieces for a while, but I thought I'd share with you my latest: Wurrzag! http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m482/marsforthemuses/Tabletop%20Plus1/Wurrzag/DSC_0870_zpskybe...

Re: AWRK paintlog - Lizardmen Skink Priest

I like it, particularly the NMM and some of the highlighting. :) It is a little clean looking for a lizard, though, but that's a matter of taste.

How did you highlight the scales on his back and the green skin, if you don't mind my asking?

Re: Marta's stuff

These are really lovely pieces. I prefer the knight, though. something about the red doesn't quite fit the rest of da rock for me. Still, fantastic work. :clap:

How do you get the highlights to look so natural and realistic, particularly the knight's face and green cloth?

Re: I still want to improve my painting.

Yeah. Seeing them beside all the others and I really wish I'd put more time into the bases. My main notes from the experience: Bases NEED more work and will be the focus of my next few models. I've still got links I think you gave me before Maru which will be really helpful. Models are too bright. I...

Re: I still want to improve my painting.

First off, thanks to everyone for commenting in my WIP thread. I tried to make the most of your input and I definitely think it made a difference. Anyway, here are my GD pieces (still using phone camera sadly but should have a new one soon). I'd really like to be a finalist tomorrow but having seen ...

Re: I Want to Improve My Painting

Thanks for the comments guys. Sorry about the photos. Stuck using my phone. :( Anyway, hopefully these will be better. And something else I'm working on. Let me know what you think, particularly Eowyn's sword. :) Also, these pics are exaggerated in their brightness. Will get some in natural light to...

Re: I Want to Improve My Painting

So I'm hoping this will be an entry for GD. I know it's not my best, but here goes. http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m482/marsforthemuses/TinyWorksofArt/DSC_0278_zps8b72a400.jpg http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m482/marsforthemuses/TinyWorksofArt/DSC_0279_zpsa75a415e.jpg http://i1128.photobuck...

Re: I still want to improve my painting.

Hey everyone. Been a while and unfortunately haven't painted much in the interim. Hoping this year will be different. Working on some stuff for golden demon right now but thought I'd share this, painted a few months ago. http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m482/marsforthemuses/Favourites/P1010341_zp...
