    Default Anyone ever done a "then" vs "now" (i.e. repainting a mini much later?)

    It's facinating to me to go through people's galleries and look at their older work compared to their newer work; seeing some of the skill progression is very inspiring.

    But has anyone ever either repainted a miniature they previously painted or painted the same model, but at a later date? I thought it would be really interesting to see how a person's skill level and style change by repainting the same mini. Are there any examples of this?

    I am planning to do this on my Grimgor ironhide, just bought a second model, the only problem is that the new one is in finecast... So the raw material is in a lower quality than the white metal used before.

    I have repainted the same mini (the actual mini not a new one) with a year apart.

    I repainted one of my rackham barbarian some years ago. The same figure but just cleaned from paint. I don't remember how many years there is difference between those. I would say 2-3 years.

    I could see doing a then and now, but I'd have to paint a copy of the original. I definitely am one of those that likes to keep a record of my work, so stripping an old mini would be destroying the evidence, so to speak

    I'm in the middle of doing one now for my Iron Warriors Captain/Legion Praetor, but its also a then and now from the conversion side as well. Hopefully should be done in the next week or so.

    That's really awesome; I like seeing the changes in the way you painted the armor and how much more nuanced detail there was in the more recent one.

    Now that's an epic change! Really nice shading on the more recent version. It's giving me hope that time and effort will bring progress

    Thanks shponglefan, the NMM suits the mini more than TMM imo.

    Well I don't know about you Ladies & Gentlemen but I had to look it up lol

    nuance |ˈn(y)o͞oˌäns|
    noun

    a subtle difference in or shade of meaning, expression, or sound: the nuances of facial expression and body language.

    verb [ with obj. ] (usu. be nuanced)
    give nuances to: the effect of the music is nuanced by the social situation of listeners.

    ORIGIN late 18th cent.: from French, ‘shade, subtlety,’ from nuer ‘to shade,’ based on Latin nubes ‘cloud.’

    Hi,

    Great job on the repaint mini, I like the light reflect on the sword.
    The mini is very expressive.
    Cheers
