I love painting :). My first painted model was bretonian knight when I was eleven. Anyway I started painting a lot and professionally two years ago, check the gallery for results!
I will gladly answer your questions and doubts.
I paint in two quality levels:
high quality tabletop (HQT) – good choice for army painting, best quality to cost relation. Every model is neat and look nice from close distance.
masterpiece (M) – great for characters, collectors or very demanding players. Models looks awesome. The light-shadow contrast is aquiline, colors are smooth.
I believe, for models it is more important to look great from a distance, rather than close shot of a camera. I saw many models, that looked awesome in the picture, or up close, but from player’s distance so so.
I aim for cool models for playing.
That’s why I prefer colorful models, sharp details, non metal metallic technique, big contrast between light and shadow.
What is the difference?
The time I spent.
When painting in HQT I try to save time by using efficient techniques like airbrush, metallic paints, water effects, weather effects etc. They still looks great, but not that brilliant like M.
For M it is mostly arduous job. I glaze, and I glaze and I glaze… Preferred technique is non-metal-metallic, sometimes freehands, etc.
