Hi guys and gals! I'm a long time lurker on this fantastic site and am constantly being amazed by the standard of painting gracing the galleries!
I've been painting since I was about 12 years old on and off, with a big gap of about ten years in between. I picked up a paintbrush a couple of years ago and started painting again as a tool to destress after work, and I'd forgotten just how much I enjoyed it! I feel at times that i'm regaining a part of my childhood and my imagination which I presumed MIA since the real world took over my life has returned!
I've become quite profitient at churning out armies but i'd love to raise my skill level and become even half has good as some of the talent on show here! I'd appreciate it if you guys could throw as much critique and advice my way as you can as I post my work, i'm pretty thick skinned and know I've got so much to learn!
A couple of pieces I've done over the past couple of weeks so you can see where i'm at painting wise:
And what I'm currently working on
I'm trying to paint different things and trying out different techniques, and want to learn more about colours, composition so reading up furiously on them. I seem to be struggling with placements of shadow and highlights too as my poor attempt at nmm on the Tzeentch sorceror shows (ive tried on the armour of the skaven character too)
I look forward to speaking to you guys as I post more wip's, and hope I can help others further down the line too!
