    Cool! Your painting looks great (after you told me what it was )! It reminds me of the Japanese style watercolors

    Thanks. It’s all pens. I’m getting some time to work on it here during Father’s Day. Hope the rest of you dads are relaxing a bit, too!

    Nice work on Toadchapel and getting Hairster to write up some articles was a real coup. He's got loads of talent I love the 2D art you're featuring lately on the site. I used to draw before I found painting and there are times I think about going back to it. I applaud you for taking some time to do that

    Ok gang, another can’t-miss tutorial has hit the Chap. This time it’s our good buddy BaM who’s given us his thoughts on the use of contrast in figure painting. Enjoy! Comment! Follow!

    Great tutorial, I love the interview-ish section at the end.
    Please do more of these!

    Its really a coup to get such great talent on your site, Toad. BAM wrote a fantastic article with useful information for beginners and more experienced painters to consider. Like Gorb, I really enjoyed the bio as well as it shows what hard work and dedication can do in our hobby. I look forward to seeing more interviews/advice articles but also your painting as you have time!

    Haven’t entirely given up the paintbrushes. Been trying to advance the display piece I’ve been stabbing at since, oh I don’t know, maybe some time last year. This guy:

    My current focus is the many packs he’s carrying. Here they are. The bottle one and all the straps have not been started.

    I’d love any feedback you have that might help this reach a higher level.

    OK, turkeys, more good stuff for you! You know how you've always wanted to know how BaM gets that disgusting rust on models like his incredible Deathguard? Of course you have. Now you can find out how he does it when you read his latest tutorial on ToadChapel. Check it out and hit that like button to support our efforts.

    As I start zeroing in on the Random Encounter, I’ve started work on a base. I decided to put him on a path beside a wall. He’s not utterly out in the wild (he just looks a little too clean & dapper for that), hence the trail & the wall. But his is leaving civilization, so the wall gives out here, just ahead of where he’s walking. I thought the shape of the knot in the plinth, echoed by the wall, could reinforce the dynamic pull of the sculpture. Anyway, lemme know what you think.

    Step 1, then had to wait for Milliput to harden.

    I think this is it for the bottom layer of construction. I’ll add the earth and then prime it for painting & scenic touches.

    I think it looks really good! I would say if you want to go for realism, then I would redo the rock wall as they all seem to be pretty round. Most rock walls tend to have some flatter, squarish stones vice rounder ones. That being said, it will look a lot different painted up and it really is up to you how you want them depicted. I really like the plinth, you find that or purchase it from somewhere?

    Thanks for your feedback, Eki. I took your advice and think it looks more interesting & realistic.

    The plinth I bought at the MFCA show in Philly.

    You can check out a few more angles and a bit of my customary rambling on TC if you like.

    The cloak on the dwarf, as well as his leather backpack, look amazing!
    The plinth and basing also looks awesome. Very nice work on this!

    Ok friends, I've got another fabulous guest tutorial for you to check out. This one comes from our man g0rb. In it he breaks down some of the design principles that guide his papermodeling. It's not technical (he doesn't recommend razor blades, for instance), and he gets into some ideas that apply to those of us who aren't crazy or talented enough to create 40K vehicles out of cereal boxes. Have a look!
