    I like your use of colour, and you seem to have a pretty good control over where you put the paint.

    You say it's slow going - try your hand at washing and inking for some quick, satisfying effects. You have a strong ground; now start branching out to new techniques.

    I don't believe you average joe (average joe doesnt blend...). your use of lighting is bad dude, and it obscures our your detail. obviously a few other posters dont realize that, but your uses of blending is really good though, i can at least see that.

    What do you mean by lighting? IF its the technique im not trying to go for that. The nid there has it most outer edes yellow as molten is spewing out. I wasnt trying to create lighting only an effect of livving molten. It was my test and ya i dont see how i got 2 rookies XD?

    I voted average Joe simply because you need to neaten up those lines.

    Backdraft says you blend but I disagree. All I see is layering.

    Not to shoot you down though, I think once you neaten things up a bit your models will look brilliant. Its simply the rough edges which mark you down at the moment.

    E; I think what he means by lighting is when trying to create such shade differenced you msut consider; Where is my light coming from?

    Eg; If the light is directly above the top of the side vents of the back pack will be the lightest area. The problem with that you have done by this logic is that the BOTTOM of the shin guards. The furthest tucked away and LEAST likely to have light shining on it is the brightest.

    Also, in regards to living molten -> The darkest area will always be the outer most layer while the most intensely bright area will be the core. E.g Instead of working from black to white like you are currently, you should work from white to black.

    I put down intermediate, you are experimenting with coulour and that is great. WHat has been said about your blending/layering is for the most part correct, you have the right idea but it isn't quite smooth enough. It will come though.

    More than the painting though the photos weren't very good, it is always tough to take a photo of a good miniature and that is probably something you need to practice if you want to get people to rate your skills as a painter, photo is sort of holding you back right now unfortunately.

    Keep up the good work and stay patient with yourself, Good things take time.
    Cheers Allonairre

    I can't belive that me and only two others have voted 'pro'. I mean c'mon people!!!!

    For me painting neatly is THE most important part of painting.
    Learning to use washes is a close second. Once you have mastered that then move on
    to stuff like layering and wet blending and all that jazz.
    Also the use of English may help you in future posts!
