  2. Dilema: New Model or New Art Supplies?

    Anyone else have this problem? I sold enough models to buy an SM resin of my choice and have some money left over, or I have enough money to buy a cheap airbrush set that comes with 3 airbrushes and a compressor that comes recommended by a model horse artist and several artists on youtube as a good beginner set. On one hand, maybe a new method of painting is what I need to get out of my artistic slump. Prepping for pastels drives me CRAZY and then I still get grain. Perhaps base coating with acrylics ...

We see this happen in more basic forms when someone picks on another person for wearing their hair in a way that is different from the majority of other people.

  5. Bleh.

    Late at night, as I am trying to fall asleep is when I have my most negative thoughts. Lately though, one these has sounded even reasonable. In my 2-3 years in the hobby, I have finished one simple resculpt and maybe 10 simple paint jobs at most. I'm starting to think that maybe I shouldn't bother with resculpting and just focus on painting and maybe tack making. Major cm work is very intimidating and most of the time I have no problem hacking up a model. But then I leave it languishing and unfinished ...
