It looks really good I must say
I love the highlighting and the level of detail you managed to paint.
There is one advice though that you really need to get, it's to use thinner paints.
It seems to me like if you've used the paint straight from the pot and that is never a good thing.
Not sure if you use a palette but you really should always do that, on the palette you should have a drop of water. When you get the brush from the paintjar get it onto the palette and then mix it with water until you have a smooth flowing paint.
When you apply this to the ini it'll go where it should without any force being needed. A think paint will clog your brush and get very hard to move around once on the model, a wet one will just be soo much easier to use.
But I must say it's a great piece you have there especially for only being into the hobby for five months!
I think that's a pretty cool looking model. I agree with Andu on thinning the paints, it really helps. Other than I can only sya, keep on painting and you'll be amazed how fast you cna improve!
Hmm I always thin the paints 50/50. Ill try 33/66 this time. Thanks for all the CC.
Nice looking IG, other than agree with everyone about thinning paints, not much to add. Good job.
Ok I'll strip him now then. Thanks everyone.
I wouldn't strip him quite yet. I'd paint anouther and then compare them that way you can see whats working and whats not.
Greymonk is very much right, I don't know how many times I wished I had saved some of my early minis, for both conversions and painting.
I do however also really like your attitude, it seems to me you are seriously interested in learning how to improve your skill. It is not uncommon that advice given bounces of the one asking for them. "Who are you to tell me..."
To be able to take critisism like you did (do) is one of the most important things in life.
