amazing always impressive i dont think i have the skill or patience for this especially when doing an entire arm :o 


Very nice work Matt.

Like everything else, when it's written down it takes a lot longer to read than it actually does to do, plus trying out a new style or method of anything takes time to master because you are starting from scratch. Once you get the basics nailed it almost becomes second nature and technique takes precedence over patience and you will be surprised to see how quickly you can get figures painted to a good standard.

Rimmer: "Aliens."

Lister: "Oh God, aliens... Your explanation for anything slightly peculiar is aliens, isn't it?

Rimmer: "Well, we didn't use it all, Lister. Who did?"

Lister: "Rimmer, aliens used our bog roll?"

Thanks guys.

Everyone has there own technique and every technique has its merits. Mine is quite time consuming but gives a good finish for me, I wouldn't use it if you wanted an army in a hurry.... I'm never in a hurry  :D
