Gw orks first and latest paint jobfirst and latest paint job
Posted 11 April 2012 - 09:17 PM
So not long after my last post in here both my computers crashed and I lost all my pics. In the time I was fixing the computer I found the first mini I painted back in August last year, I thought it would be good to dig out another one and see them side by side. They are not finished or cleaned as I do not play Orks so they are just for experimenting on.
I would like to see everyone’s first or early works and now along with how long you have been painting for

As for me I have been painting for a little over 2 years now, although I have only painted 2 minis in the last year due to time constraints.
Here is my first mini painted in February of 2010.
And....Here is my most recent image, painted in March of 2012.
I think the biggest improvement on my end was learning the proper use of contrast and how to blend....although I am still working on blending well.

Here was the first for me (the conversion was done by a friend who also gave me some pointers)
And a more recent one from February (I am in no way at Mercius' level)
The thing that helped me the most is the willingness to constantly step out of my comfort zone to try something new even if it means ruining a paint job--which so far I've been lucky enough to never have happen-- and insisting that I have to try and paint each model better then the last, or at least some aspect like skin or metal.
I never thought I'd write this...but I agree with MonkeySloth on this one. ~ Adrift

After taking this pick I was thinking I still need to go deeper in the shadows and higher highlights. I think the biggest step I have had would be thinning paint, the first one was gw paint as no doubt you can tell after getting reaper paints my next mini was Eldessa, Necromancer that I poster here back in Nov last year.
I think the next thing I need to work on is going back and forwards, I tend to not go back to fix things up as much as I should.

Repetition I hope will lead to leveling up on this one
