    Tau ethereal

    Ok this picture is a figurine i did minor conversion+painter pretty well (i think) a few months back.It's Aun'shi,a tau special character,i did a minor conversion (he is holding two swords) and i use him as my tau ethereal,not as aun'shi as aun'shi is pretty bad (lol) and can't be used with the newest tau codex.But since i never use ethereals,since they are pretty bad,he's been just sitting on the shelf gathering dust for about 6 month.So i thought i'd show him to you people so you can tell me how i painted it,i think it's pretty good (of course nothing compared to painters who actually know what they're doing..).

    Well here it is

    Still, in comparison to anything I could paint, this is amazing. I used to play Tau, and mine were litteraly blobs of paint! Keep up the good work!

    Hi Svalene, it is a reasonable piece fo work, certainly as good a table top standard as most painters.

    would need larger piccis to give more info, probably look at more highlighting

    but good work

    That is a good looking model. Did you paint the writing on his cloak and loin cloth? The writing kills me most of the time.

    As much as I love to drink and play, from one drinker to another, don't drink and paint. I have found that the libation and the paints don't mix so well. Maybe a drink, towards the end of your painting session.

    I have gotten pretty good at dry-brushing. It's the mediocre painter's best way to paint really nice looking models that really, bottom line, look great. Especially from 2 feet away.

    i figure that, for us mediocre alcoholic painters, if you want to avoid faltering, measure the distance from your painting seat to the back of your painting area where you put completed models and paint so all your models look best at that distance, and therefore continue to inspire you, but i digress, Svalene, nice job.

    14 years old,and already alcoholic ,well this shocks my most sensible soul which has never drank/smoked 0:

    And yea i wrote the writing on the back, it doesn't acxtually mean anything, i just copied random tau letters from the codex.I did it while holding my breath and being very very patient and careful.As you can see the letters still are slightly crooked,but from far it looks nice

    About dry brushing,i mostly use it for my kroots due to their body shape (all crooked and lean with lots of muscle and spikes) and it works wonders,for the rest of my army i prefer a clean,white feel
