Re: Oceangrave's #TheDailyPaint

The green you could probably work on a tad. You got a nice smooth base layer but the HL's are minimal and overall it gives off a very flat appearance. I don't think your HL color is bright enough... Maybe make them stronger by going over them again and/or adding some light gray to the mix and apply ...

Re: Blue's #thedailypaint

Well that's not all I did to it... But it is really easy to clean an airbrush. I usually just disassemble the needle and nozzle from the gun and hit everything with some nylon pipe brushes. I use windex to clean them. Wipe the needle with a paper towel. That's usually all I do... Sometimes though, s...

Yeah I see that charred look. Definitely looks black without being black.

Re: Blue's #thedailypaint

Haha, pics! The gloss isn't dried yet... Actually just added a second coat so it's really wet looking but you can see the small dark brown lines/squiggles added into the pattern. http://i877.photobucket.com/albums/ab336/blueductcleaner/100_2795.jpg Close up! http://i877.photobucket.com/albums/ab336/...

Re: maintaining your brushes

is there anything you do (or dont do) to prevent damaging the bristles (stopping the brushes from losing the point)? Common sense here says not to jam to point into tight areas or any areas for that matter... The bristles are only hair and can break very easily. Besides that regular cleaning is the...

Re: Blue's #thedailypaint

Not physically destroy it. Duh! :lol: You still wouldn't destroy it! :wink: Looking forward to more updates. Thanks for following along bud... Finally done the camo pattern! I think my eyes will explode if I had to continue. When adding the dark brown lines to the camo pattern I had to get really c...

Re: June know what I think? Let's have a deathmatch!

Blue vs. Crusherfex = Tau SkyRay Blue, I really hate to do this, but do you think we could push it to July? Finals are next week and end on the 19th, and I'll only have a few days to paint before the month ends. If you can't next month, I'll do it this month, but I'll have much more time in July. P...

Re: maintaining your brushes

For me the single most important thing is to make sure paint doesn't get up into the ferrule. (the metal part) If it does then I clean the brush with water immediately to avoid it drying there and spreading the bristles. Past that all I do is clean them using Master's brush Cleaner and Preserver eve...
