Hello, I recently got the itch to start playing/painting warhammer 40k again, and saw that I still had a few unpainted models laying around my room. So I grabbed a brush and did a test fig of an Ork boy from the AoBR set. I would greatly appreciate it if I could get some pointers on how to get better
I think the dry brush would have looked a little better if you had used it a little more sparingly. It looks way overused :[
I left a bit too much paint on the brush by mistake :p
You need to thin the paint you used for the top knot
The face looks very nice!
i think the top knot needs more depth, an extra color, darker yellow, or orange something like it. (and thinner drybrushing as said)

As the Eavy Metal painters citiqued me - use lots of thin layers, work up to light from dark where possible, and use glazes to unify the colours - e.g. the trousers and the sword. The highlights and shading on teh sword aren't extreme enough BUT you also need to have unified colour so it looks like a smooth transition to all but the thinnest edge highlight (that you reapply after the final glaze)
Ok, I'll try using thinner paints, I had thought I thinned it too much!
Do you see where teh paint has puddled on teh toopknot? I would use a glaze or flow medium to allow teh paint to glaze rather than puddle..
On teh positive - I love teh face especially around teh jawline and teh teeth - the more "realistic" orc style rather than cartoony style - thumbs up there!
