Back in the Saddle!

I’m finally back and ready to paint! It’s been a tough couple of years for everyone and I’m no exception. I’ve not been posting due to mental illness, general stress and a little bit of painting fatigue. I may write a bit more about that in the future. After a good amount of self care I’m feeling ready to jump back in the saddle and get some content out there.

I’m jumping straight back into guides for Marvel: Crisis Protocol. I took a bit of a break from this over the last few months, which is where the fatigue comes in. The Inhumans managed to form a painting block on me, and I just couldn’t find the inspiration to break it. This week I managed to break through that barrier…

You can find a guide for this pair here, alongside another new guide for Captain Marvel & Crossbones, with Crystal & Lockjaw not far behind.

I’ve also steadily been working away on articles for Tabletop Gaming magazine and I’ll be adding more information about these soon, but for now enjoy some pretty pictures from the guides…

I’d also like to say thank you to those who keep coming back for more and/or checked up while I was absent, and sorry to those whose comments I didn’t get back to.

Until next time, be excellent to each other!
