    Sprock, silly me I have another question for you. Please feel free to answer AFTER basking in your victories at GD. Don't want to take up your time with my annoying questions when it's so close to G Day.

    My my question is a general one concerning your process. I see that on your blog you always mention a basecoat, a shade, a midtone, and a highlight. I am assuming you paint in this order for most projects. I am also deducing that your basecoat is normally between your midtone and your shade. But why is that? Why would it be this way and not just basecoat with your midtone? Because of lighting, for instance, if an object were to receive mostly midtone and highlights with a small shaded area, would you then basecoat with a lighter color? Thanks, just exploring your way if doing things. When I painted my first display mini, now that I think of it, I always base coated with a darker than midtone color. Thanks brother for your help and break a mini's leg.

    Yes this!

    Thanks for the moral support Guys. I am indeed VERY busy but I'm keeping on schedule and hope to finish some time Friday. The experience of painting a mini in two week is proving to be a bit intence but I'll be fine once the cramps in my painting have gone (I kid you not).

    Here is a work in progress pic from last week. This is the mini as it was at the end of day three. Next time you see it it'll be done & I'll be done in!

    I'm flabberghasted that you even prime progressively. I'd be too frickin' scared of messing those wonderfully finished parts with even the slightest of of slips...

    Perhaps he doesn't prime? Many artists prefer not to and are able to get perfectly good blends.

    Sproket doesn't prime. Of course, then he has nothing to blame his mistakes on like me... :P I am shocked you could get that far in a few days. I still want to see a race between you, 10 and andyg just for fun - 1 figure, simple gaming base, 1 week and everyone stop at the end of 7 days and see where each is.

    Sprocket is like the chuck Norris of painting. If he wants to paint a mini, the mini primes itself for him. Or it gets round house kicked back to GW.

    So a painted mini in two weeks .... done!

    I'm very pleased with what I've been able to achieve. There are lots of things I would have done diferently, and I hope better, if I had taken more time. But my goal was to paint a mini in two weeks that I wouldn't be ashamed to bring to Golden Demon, and I've pulled that off.

    I wouldn't do this again in a rush as the pressure was a bit much at times. But as a one off challenge to myself it was an 'interesting' experience; and it's good to push yourself sometime to see just what you can acheive.

    (The pics aren't great, but I'm a bit frazzled so they are the best I can manage at the moment)
