Uploaded my first photo onto CMoN (Chaos Marine Lord). This is what it tells me:

"You are ranked 8226 out of 8226 artists. You can add this rank dynamically to your website like this:..."

And I was already feeling like I am at the bottom of a deep well...  :-(



  1. Ouch!
    Probably just because you're a new addition, yes?
    CMoN is a strange subset of the hobby, IMO. Sometimes I go there to get ideas from how other folks have painted a certain figure... but their emphasis seems to be on painting for display, rather than play... so I've never bothered to post any photos of my stuff there, not wanting the discouragement.

  2. Yes, very first submission. I have to conclude that my painting style does not belong there. It seems that the final effect doesn't matter, just technique, particularly 'perfect' blending, which I admire technically, but on the whole (imho) blending just takes out any potential realism, flattens out instead of enhancing detail. I am firmly on the side of John Blanche's opinions as seen at Spyglass Asylum.
