    That is a very deep insight, I'll have to think that one over carefully. I have the typical procrastination problem, where I don't want to start painting until I'm "ready", because I'm afraid of messing up - it's gotta be right from the start, if you know what I mean. But then, every single mini goes through a "ugly duckling phase" in any case no matter what. So this idea that one can start slapping paint on (so to speak), taking a load off their shoulders, because no matter what they do afterwards it can only get better... I like that

    indeed, there actually a couple of layers to the insight. the being as you say taking the load off your shoulders and be happy that all you can do is make it better. But also, I found by putting myself in a situation where I really truly believed the model was a lost cause, it opened up the different mindset. as soon as that pressure was taken away the panting because an intuition based process and a process based process.

    Rather the thinking of the many steps steps required to get from A to B it more a mater of looking at the model and thinking that bit needs to be darker so adding some dark colour then looking at another bit and making that dark to, then finding a bit that needs to be brighter and adding some bright paint. then somehwhere along the lines of things I might look and thing that blend needs to eb smoother, so I add a mid tone to make it smooth. So yeah I guess what im saying is find model you don't care about ands paint it fast. don't necessary use fast methods like dry brushing and heavy washes, still try to blend but go fast. doing that seems to open the mind to other things, or at least it did mine.

    its been a bit hard to get into the flow this last week. various stuff happening in the real world has been distracting me. however I managed to get a couple of painting sessions in here and there.

    I have mainly been working on his axe blade. I'm happy enough with the stone for now and next will be working on the ropes that are holding it on. Nothing else to report really.

    hopefully I will have little more progress to show next time.......

    I am really liking the green stones, especially since it isn't a color you typically think about for stone. And the green goes really well with the reddish hue to the body. Outstanding work on Trev so far!

    Yeah, I like the green stones too, kinda like a light obsidian or a dark jade, especially with the facets.

    another week of slow progress with trevor. The details bits can really slow you down. spent a couple of sessions doing the rope. then over the weekend have been working the wooden bit. I didn't want to add another completely different colour to the scheme so went for greenish coloured wood, so to harmonises with the the stone. I reckon having a bit of lichen and what not on wood is a reasonable thing to happen, so colour can reexplained away..... I also addd some pure green and blue nuences. was good fun really. just threw paint on till to looked good.....

    I like the idea of having greenish stones. Are you thinking about making them a bit look like gems or "warpstonish"?
    This might fit to the bright color scheme you've chosen.

    thanks graishak. for the most part they will stays they are I think. so not really sure what they are other then green stones. some of the smaller ones on him like his earrings and round his neck I might make look a little more polished and gem like.

    Trev's looking awesome! you can definitely see the benefits/influence of the Soper course. Had the pleasure of seeing his model at the weekend and the level of detail and appreciation of texture and light is pretty staggering.
