Guys, questions like this I simply don't have an answer for. What do YOU like?
I received this great email in response to a comment on a video. The comment was a standard unhelpful "You cant' paint you shouldn't be giving advice your stuff looks like poop" sort of comment to which I gave my standard Jawa-answer. Then I got this fantastic reply:
dear jawaballsThat my friends is some of the best advice I have ever heard any where. I agree, there is a difference. This advice was certainly taken to heart. I answered with this however: I believe that there are a large number of you who will never be "great". As an art teacher I know that most kids, no matter how hard they try, will never make it. It is to these people that I aim my tutorials. Most guys will be satisfied with painting average because average is a step up from where they began. The realistic truth is that good is an obtainable goal and great is fairy tale land. So when I give advice and do tutorials, I do them from the point of view of all you guys starting at below average, and get you to good the quickest way possible. Now, in my own painting, he is right. I need to take my own stuff from good to outstanding. I believe thought that I am on my way. My most recent army puts my old stuff to shame. Now, that old stuff won me Best Painted at several events including major GTs. But I admit it was not outstanding. My current army is starting to eclipse that horizon. I think in a few years, I will have figured things out, and indeed be able to call myself great. Thanks man for the perspective. Your follow up email was much much more beneficial than your original comment.
Ok, thats enough for now, my after school 40k club just walked in. Time to teach kids how to paint... good. :)
