Two weeks ago I did something in my miniature hobby I've never done before. I painted in a public setting, more specifically in my friendly local game store. I decided to join in the festivities of a paint night by painting the Boneclaw from Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures paint kit.
Often in the miniature painting hobby we focus on ever increasing our piles of proud projects but never taking the time to properly organize and store it. This is my lesson to make sure I correct this mistake for the future.
Last January 2021 I set out to test to see if I could see personal growth in my hobby. I painted a benchmark miniature figure so that I may judge my improvement over the course of one calendar year. This benchmark was at that time the very best I could do in painting a miniature. I set no time limit and poured myself into it. The primary goal was to test if I could see a before and after of how far I developed as a miniature painter.
While I don't think it is possible to do anything halfway. But it turns out I can be halfway on a project. Check out my current status of the Lost Adventures Volume 1, 100% printing project.
