Too Much Blood for the Blood God (?)

It’s safe to say 2017 is off to a slow start in terms of painting.

And so as our first year in Denver comes to a close, our focus turns from ‘getting here’ to really setting up a life here.
That’s to give you an idea of where my mind is but in reality, 2016 was a fairly productive year in terms of hobby. The year saw me paint more models than I have in a number of yearsand while painting for me has always been a slow process, I’ve grown as an artist and I am constantly looking for new ways to improve. On the terrain end of my hobby, I’m continuing to create…
