Hey everyone,

Thought I would join up as an inspiration to try and get me to paint each day or pretty close to it. As well as get other painters to comment on areas of improvement etc.

Here is what I finished a couple of days ago and what I am working on now. Sorry I dont know how to make my pictures smaller.

Working on the inside of the top level so that I can put on the next floor without difficulties of painting.

Welcome to the Cult!

For the Aquilla, add some dust. A light drybrushing of a light gray will do the trick!

Welcome aboard dude!

That aquilla could also use some darker shadows. Try thinning some chaos black (or a dark reddish brown color)and running it in the recesses only.

The interior of that building looks perfect with that mottled texture. What colors and technique did you use to achieve it?

Thanks for the welcome guys and for the comments on the Aquila, exactly why I want to join this cult. Will do so more washes in the creases tomorrow and do some more highlighting as well to give that dust look. Do u think codex grey is ok or do I need to go lighter, like a that Deneb stone however u spell it.

For the wall I used two coats of shadow grey and then mashed a devlin mud wash dabbing the bush straight into it. Kind ruins the brush but use an old one so was fine. Then used codex grey to once again dab with a dry brush to get that random blotchy look with the blotchy mud look.

Codex gray will work but make sure to do a very light dry brush. Too thick or heavy and it will be too noticeable.

What may be nice is to do the same thing you did to that interior wall to the aquilla. Smish in codex gray and/or some other color then go over all of it with a thin layer of your base color to blend it together a bit.

Was away over the weekend so wasn't able to do much painting until late Sunday night. Only managed to do the metals on the 1st floor, tonight will do the ground floor then I can put the next floor on and then start on the exterior of the building.
