I've just read through this whole thread (newbie here!) and I think I'm stating the obvious when I say that you are one of the greatest painters there is, never mind the ATT

Your work is sublime, I'm still in awe of your Commander and Kroot models - REALLY looking forward to progress on your Ghostkeel! :D
For the Tau'va!

Very nice sir! I've come to enjoy the smooth gradients that a airbrush supplies paired with sharp highlights. Infinity players call this the Gerhaldez method after the Infinity studio painter Angel Gerhaldez.

I've been doing something similar with my ghostkeels. I tried to do some stenciling (since I don't think its lazy at all) but was having trouble getting a good effect. You sir have done a far superior job to my own!

It's really shaping up very nicely, Persifal. There is only one little thing that doesn't click me properly, but I don't know if it's a deliberate stylistic choice or not, it's the highlights of the black areas, they seem too bright (too much white) to me. It's a valid choice, mind me, but if you were going to just highlight black (and not give it a TRON style glow), a bit more grey wouldn't have hurt.

It's Giraldez, not Gerhaldez (it makes he seem german when he is spanish. I may seem nitpicky, but being spanish myself, that misspelling hurts too much for comfort. Sorry :sad: )

@Rhy'kais: Welcome to the ATT! Thanks for compliments. :)

@Shadow Strike: The main Infinity painter is Angel Giraldez as said Kalten. His painting book is interesting point of view to his method of miniature painting. He is good inspiration for me but I have some different methods how to paint models. I'm really flattered comparison me with Angel, thank you. Bud my painting roots are in models of 'Eavy metal team. Airbrush is only tool for save some time.

@Kalten: I'm welcoming all types of suggestions. You are right, I usually make edge highlights on black darker but in last months I changed it a little. I applied first edge highlight on the right leg and I will try to not too overdo next steps. :) But strong edge highlights are my favorite style of painting W40k models.
Hmm. Looks like I made this photo brighter, sorry for that.

Hello ATT,
I hope in near future I will be able to add here some finished tau model. For now I have only this two xenos hunters. Be gentle on me :)

For a couple minutes slapping on paint, not to shabby. ;)

Really like the cape work, the detail there is great work. Very smooth yet dynamic NMM fx too.

Top stuff and thank you for the update!

Persifal

I was actually quiet surprised, I have seen photos of multiple pieces of your work long before me joining ATT.

Very well done, man you paint at the level I hope to paint at one day. Hope you check out my Project Log would love to get some insight from you on my work.

Will be following you projects brother.

Persifal I've been following the updates on FB for your watch master. He really did come together very nicely I knew peoples issues with the black being to light were premature. It was fun to watch your progress, thank you for sharing it.

Project logs like this one make me want to never touch a paintbrush in my life. Just too much awesome to cope with...

I started this hobby in 2010. Everyone one was better than me. Look over the Internet for the tutorials and tips. I believe that everyone can improve with practicing and focus. I'm like Bob Ross in this.

Certainly agree with Persifal. My first model used poster paints, which fell off in an hour :D

Back in the 90's nothing really online to help, but today you have youtube, facebook, WarhammerTV even. Few minutes each evening painting along with any number of talented VLOG painters should crank up your level.

Another is having the lads around for beverages and a session painting some NPC's or bulk batch for one of the groups armies also provides a great source of inspiration and skill trading.

Alternatively, you can even get some live web help. When I can I like to grab a mini and sit down for a Twitch stream from a group called Brush Lickers United. It's comprised entirely of some great people. I paint while watching their streams and pick up some techniques along the way.
