  1. Looking good.

    My only criticism would be for you to do less dry brushing. It’s a good and safe technique and it has a place but you seem to use it on most everything though. I know you’re a good enough painter to not rely on it for everything. If you want to improve you have to step out of the comfort zone.

    • Thanks for the help. I do tend to overdo the drybrush sometimes. Looking forward to trying the wetblending technique you showed me to blend greens into browns for my Nurgle models.

  2. I’d be selective on wet blending. It’s a great technique but can consume some serious time. Good use of washes can almost accomplish the same effect with way less time. It really comes down to what you’re aiming for.

    For example, on my Plague Champions I based in brown and dry-brushed up to green. I then washed all that in really thinned down brown, same brown I started with, and then dry-brushed up to green again. What it did was blend in my first two coats I dry-brushed, while providing a 3rd coat, and then the final green dry-brush was light and it all blended. Doing that took a lot less time than wet blending everything and still has that blended balance.

    I personally save wet blending for light sources. Small details that really stand out when you wet blend.
