Hey guys so its been about 4 years since i last painted when i was a mere 14 years of age ^^. Ive now goten well back into warhammer, however unfortunately my painting has not improved however i thought throw myself out there post a few pics and get some advice! So what do you think? What improvments could i make? I only really know a few techniques such as drybrushing and well thats it, so what other techniques could i use? Thanks for taking the time to look there will be quite a few more pics coming up! I have 2k of lizardmen to paint hehe so except more (hopefully my painting will improve by then).
An easy thing you can do to improve your painting is by using washes or inks. When you water them down and put them on the areas they will create depth for you. I you want to go into harder techniques id advise you to check out the tutorials. Hoped i helped some
Lizard men are one of those armies that are outrageously easy to make look great with washes. It's all the highly textured scaled surfaces. Start with a lighter color base than you're using and wash them. They'll look brilliant.
Agreed since youve been gone citidel have released washes, try them out, they improve a model heaps.

also, I just quickly looked through the latest threads and a lot of people seem to be asking "how can I improve", so maybe check those out for more general tips that should apply to you as well and then do some searches on the specific techniques that people mention that should be a good start
as said, try using washes.
i´d say thats pretty good after four years out of the hobby.
oh, btw, is that a mould line on the back?
Use the the aforementioned washes and try watering your paint down a little bit, it's looking a bit thick.
Thanks for all your replies guys! In answer to your question no thats not mould line but just a tad bit of gravel that got lose =P. Ill for sure water down my paint. and then apply some washes.
