I now have a youtube channel which you can view here. I don't really know what I'm doing so don't expect any Sorastro quality videos, but if you are curious as to how I paint then head over to my channel. Who knows, maybe I'll do that tutorial on painting leather.

My first model

To celebrate 100 blog posts I thought I would share one of my earliest miniature paintings.

I was nine years old at the time and there were no gw technical paints so you had to make your own blood and rust effects. I think the skin could do with more contrast perhaps some red or purple glazes. But I really nailed the shading on the pants. When I look at the quality I was putting out then I can only wonder how good I'd be if I hadn't dropped out of the hobby  for so long. "Aren't you too old for painting toy soldiers?" No, I wasn't and I'm still not.
