miniatures.

Self Improvement

From time to time, I like to evaluate how far I have come in terms of miniature painting. I like to look at the first miniature I painted, and the last and remind myself that I am only ever competing against myself. I try to express that to everyone else as well. I love seeing other people’s work and what they create, I enjoy trying to figure out how they did a certain thing and seeing if it is something I can try myself. I do not ever really compare myself to them however, as they are on their own learning journey.

So, today, I will put some old pictures next to some newer ones and see how far I have come on my path.

These are from early 2019, I had just finished being a teacher and turned to painting full time.

The second set is my latest work, all from this year at least. Dante is perhaps the oldest here. I can see my improvements immediately. My blending is smoother, I have tackled Non-Metallic Metals and I feel my edge highlights are a lot sharper.

I know I have a lot to learn still, but this is good progress!

    1. I would never return to classroom teaching! Unless it was on how to paint miniatures of course.

      I feel I have come far, and seeing it laid out like that is something I recommend everyone doing, it is a real moral boost!
