Default Some of my stuff [Pic Heavy]

I finally got a sort-of-decent camera. Not the best, but not the worst. So some of the stuff I've been painting.

i really really really love that damsels hair... its awsome. i could not really see your men.. so i cant say, but i think you should go over the tank again and cover up where the plastic is still showing. besides that, i actually really like it. you dont see alot of orange imps.

Thanks! The chimera does need a few touch ups here and there. I'll try taking better pictures later.

Yes, the damsel came out excellently. She took me a good 10 hours though :-X

Nice, I like the gas masks on those models. well painted from what I can see (blurry). That damsel is scarily good it must have taken 7 of the 10 hours you spent to do the hair.

Actually the hair was the easiest part. Its 4 or 5 layers of color, 1 solid, then the rest steadily less drybrushed.

Yep, they will all have grassed bases when they are done. Just not quite to that stage yet, working on painting first. (The Damsel is done though).

Wow, GG. That camera is worse than the piece of Grasshopper crap I have. That Bret looks really good though. Great job.

Yeah, its supposed to be decent? Cannon, 7.1 megapixel... I'm still learning how to use it.

The Chimera looks good, some nice highlighting and detailing. The only criticism of the vehicle is the end of the auto cannons needed a little filing before painting. You can still see where it was cut from the plastic sprue.

The reason why I am being so picky is because it looks so good otherwise. I guess you can only see it really close up, but I always think its worth trying to get a model as clean as possible before I start painting.

Oh and I have to agree on the sorceress, her hair is awesome. very nice paint job overall.
