Ive been lucky with my painting. My style is quick and easy, almost sloppy at times. Yet, you get me to paint 60 models in the same scheme, and it looks pretty damn good if I do say so myself. And, guessing by the "Best Painted Army" awards I got when I did the tournament thing, other people thought I did pretty good too. Of course, what happens when you think you have a good thing? You dont push yourself to expand your skills all that much. The bar is set, and I only try to reach that high.
Ive decided to try to aim higher. Maybe all those pretty pictures from the Top Tens have finally gotten to me. The other night I ordered the full set of P3 paints, they should be arriving on Friday, hopefully before I leave for the Frozen North for the weekend. I also decided to break my "No New Armies" rule, and ordered the Protectorate of Menoth battle box. I am going to take this weekend learning how to paint better. No drybrushing. Minimal washing. Its time to learn how to highlight, to shade, maybe even blending.
Wish me luck.
