Shortly after the publication of Dungeons & Dragons 5e, some friends and I formed a group and started playing. I hadn't played in about 20 years, shockingly. Another thing I hadn't done, in about the same amount of time, is paint miniatures.
I started painting when I was around 14 and continued until my mid-twenties. I never got much into Warhammer so I never adopted their graphic style. I've always strived to do a realistic (such as it is) paint job, with true colours and tones.
I recently pulled my miniature collection from storage and tried my hand at painting again. I'm still trying to nail down a consistent workflow and technique but it's mostly by intuition that I paint.
I'm working on a getting a twitch or youtube channel to do live process videos and structured tutorials. I'm just getting started so hang tight and keep checking back!
