Teaching Myself to Paint
I’ve always wanted to paint. I started with miniatures since the basic form was already there and all I had to do was fill in the spots. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am in no way as good as some of the professional miniature painters out there. Heck, most of the amateurs are better than I am. And though I don’t have time to paint miniatures as much as I used to, I have found it easy to find time to start teaching myself to paint digitally. This is my first piece, to be used with the Thrilling Adventure Card Game (and anywhere else I decide to use it). It is the image for Light Cover. I still have some things to work on for it, but it is about 90% complete, so I thought it was ready to share. This is about 5 hours worth of work and the desk is still the initial rendering and needs to be “painted” yet. Feel free to critique over on our Facebook page or on our Twitter account. I will start off by saying that I think I still need to learn to do faces better. I like the hat and the coat a lot. I’ll probably save the hat to insert in other images if the angle is correct.
