The Wonderful World of Radom!

So Arctica asked me "What's up next?" commenting on a mini of mine over on Chest of Colours and it was awesome, because my answer was... I dunno.

It feels really good! For most of my painting days I was painting for game related stuff. I always new what my next ten projects were going to be as it was stuff I wanted to get done for gaming. Then after I went online and cowboyed up and started trying to improve myself I sort of still had a pretty good gameplan of what my upcoming mini's were going to be. And then I tried my hand at commission painting and then I knew for SURE that no matter what I painted next it was gonna feel like work.

So... this has led to a small piece of revelation. I find I am taking more and more time to paint a mini. I don't really feel the nagging at the back of my mind saying "Okay, let's wrap it up kid. We've got a lot more to do". This is making improving a lot easier. I still have lot's I WANT to do, but without any real world pressure, even the imaginary kind like getting stuff ready for the table at a tourny it's a pretty wonderful feeling.

It's great! No guilt for painting something for me instead of working on stuff for commission. No need to hammer through RnF mini's to finish off a unit of twenty for Fridays big game. None of that crap. It's beauty!

So with my liberation complete I am really going to enjoy this year. I have mini's for all of the WAMP comps. I plan on painting stuff for ladder challenges on a regular basis, but that stuff doesn't pressure me the way those other things did. It's feelin' good!

    I bet its a nice feeling, I'm feeling a bit of the same now that my Little Angels piece is done but of course I have several projects planned and/or started.

    You are still going to paint up that Lizardman army for the tournament in April right?
