“In October 2003, I picked up mini painting again after a 20 year absence. The first mini I painted was from one of Reaper’s “Learn to Paint” kits, named Laurana the Sorceress. I thought it was pretty good at the time, but looks like crap now. Yes, I even used metallic paint to highlight the hair.

One year and about 70 minis later, I decided that I really needed to go back and paint this one again, just to show how much I’ve improved since then, partly due to practice, but mostly due to the input I’ve received from alot of helpful painters around the world. I still have alot of room for improvement, but I’m pretty happy with how far I’ve come in the past year.”
