Well I've managed to throw a little more paint onto the Talon Lord and ran into a rough patch. I'm really struggling with the "wings". I wanted to somewhat copy a theme that I saw here:http://www.angelfire.com/il3/chronopia/vulturetalonlord.htm
(maybe that page is by someone on these boards???)
But when you combine an unsteady hand, improperly thinned paint, attempting to paint white over black, and several impatient tries, you get results that look like junk. These pictures don't really do the "lousiness" injustice. it just looks like gobbed on paint in person. ugh.
I'm thinking of going to start over with a coat of black (to cover what I've done) then a coat of white, then just some sort of wash to fill in the lines between the "feathers". Or maybe changing the color scheme altogether. But I'm afraid that I don't have a lot of "grooves" left due to my multiple tries. Ah, trial and error mini painting.
