I see a lot of painted minis on my facebook feed, but it's rare that one in the comparatively early stages of a paint job makes me choke on my coffee. This is one. It's all painted only with GW acrylics, apparently. No colour shifty-wierd paints used. Just normal ones. Applied using some kind of wyrd eldritch power, by the looks of it, mind you, but... :shock:

To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke's third law:
"Any sufficiently advanced painting technique is indistinguishable from magic."

Wow, yeah. I opened the thread and thought "pfft, color-shifting paints, mij is better than that," but dayum that's insane.

One thing that's occurred to me is that once a mini painter reaches a sufficient level, one has to wonder why they don't get started on flat canvas type painting. I mean, sure, they're obviously invested a lot of time into their specialist tool set, but looking at dem legs, I can't help but wonder at the kind of photo-realistic art that could be produced if Bohun there put his mind to it.

I think there is a big difference between adding colour to a 3d object and creating a picture from a blank sheet. Mini painting doesn't require you to create perspective, to be able to scale things or to give the image of different textures in quite the same way as more traditional art, ideally the sculptor should have done some of that for you. Sure, a good painter could do it, but it may not be what they enjoy. :D
Plus, minis are cool. :lol:
