i am sorry but i just cant paint details on models! i have a very unsteady hand that makes everything blotchy and wierd. could someone plz help me find a way to steady my hand?
Starting anew-september 22 2005
Try drinking a beer, It calms the nerves a bit. Don't over do it though you dont want to paint drunk.
When you paint, place both elbows on the table. Hold the mini in one hand and the brush in the other. When you bring your hands together outstretch one or more of your fingers to touch the other hand. Brace your hands together using your fingers. It takes a little work to develop a natural position. Also make sure you're not hungry, tired, dehydrated, or overdosing on caffeine.
If my hands are unsteady and I need to paint something like eyes, I put both elbows on the table, place down the mini on the table, hold the brush with both hands and carefully make a dot in the eye. But I do think my shakey hand problem is starting to go away..
I usually put my wrists together when I paint detail, my right hand a little higher then the left since I paint with that hand.
It's a bit difficult to explain easily, but just experiement with putting your hands together until you have a good and natural position. I don't know if you shake less, but at least both hands will shake the same way :)
Steady your elbows and practice practice practice.
I find that confience helps a lot. If you think you are going to have trouble painting something then you generally will have problems. If you need to paint some small details I find it easier to do it quickly because the longer i take the more unsteady my hand gets.
Hi dude ive been playing between 2-3years and after 2 years did i start painting good, right now im starting to paint my skaven becuase i just know how the supplys and skills for it.
PS: to whole those who say painting camo is hard must have a painting default.
