A short update for now. I still suck at painting. I’ve had to re-coat my Chaos Space Marine Chosen and start painting over again after a failed color scheme. After a bit of research, I found a painted version of the miniature I am working on and I’m copying the color scheme as best I can. While I learn anyway.
Here’s my current work in progress.
In a moment of foolish confidence, I made the mistake of humble-bragging about how I thought I was doing. As punishment, I am now involved in a contest against my better half, Samantha.
We will each paint a figure from our army and pictures will be posted to see who you think did better. Please note – my humble-brag was a huge reach for confidence. On the flip side, for those of you unaware, Samantha is a freelance artist, the owner of Samantha Jean Illustrations, and a skilled painter in any medium I’ve ever seen her use. She is also the talented digital artist who did the website’s logo.
As one friend gently hinted – I’m probably going to get my ass handed to me, but I’ll cheat if I have to. I’ll hide every paint brush in the house!
Samantha will be painting the Dark Angels’ Librarian Turmiel. Wish me luck!
