    That depends what you mean by a lot. Compared to that guy in the store that will paint your models in his spare time I charge a lot. But compared to other professional painters my rate for a good quality character perhaps isn't so much. However, I only want to paint characters so I don't want to price myself out of any work. This set will costs thousands of dollars as it is and I still struggle with picking up new clients. There's more to come. I'm going to switch to posting as I work through a projects rather than wait until it's finished and with the clients as otherwise I have these huge gaps without posting.

    Here's the first set of a Harry Potter commission. Despite my misgivings over the quality control over at Knight Models the models are proving to be very enjoyable to paint and I'll most likely be collecting these for myself. And I made a little video

    That's pretty good for 30 minutes. If you want more texture try using more paint on the brush and deliberate strokes. A brush with coarse hair is useful too.

    Good stuff Joe! I've had a go at making a youtube video. No idea what I was doing but I figured I'd learn as I go along. Any feedback or advice would be appreciated.

    Privateer press have a lot of videos mostly covering specific techniques https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOHvZQUaO4kfNV6-gObM3sPXisSpcphnE Paint on plastic is mostly gunpla with the occasional gw model but he has a very interesting style https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9UUZIFvHRQPfDoCP-bTB7A Scale model workshop covers historical model kits. The guy is very knowledgeable, has incredible modelling skills and makes high quality videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9UUZIFvHRQPfDoCP-bTB7A But my favourite background painting videos are the old Romain tutorials on beastofwar. I even have my own playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGDHEoEYgxDweif2myg-CyFFJWdSb2-Jk

    The patreon has been going since January and so far I counted 28 videos which cover 10 or so different models. The production values aren't very good and a lot of the videos are just streams but you get to see the entire process. I have found his videos a great help primarily because of how simple his method is. It's not that I can't do the advanced techniques, but trying to wet blend for eight hours a day is hard going. Plus, it's very scaleable so can be used for simple gaming standard not just Sergio's god tier competition standard.

    The first video for this tutorial has been posted and I have to say Duncan would lose his fucking shit if he saw how thick the paints for the basecoats were.

    It's from Scale75's fallen frontier setting. I picked up four of these busts from their kickstarter.

    Here's a bust I painted for myself. Had a lot of fun with this so I'm not too concerned about the parts that aren't quite right.

    I found this video helpful for photographing with white or black backgrounds. I would still prefer grey but then I have problems with colour balance.

    I see it as a business expense and it's only slightly more than an issue of white dwarf and a lot more useful to me. I'm even thinking of doing the 1 hour video chat pledge once I have some work. Here are my dwarf repaints.
