    Very linear. Start at the base, finish it. Boots to finished state etc. all the way up.

    Linear painting? Well I can paint lines, I seem to be quite good at pinstripes...

    I do one thing at a time and fully finish it before moving on to another part. That way just works best for me.

    same here, one thing at a time, fully finished until i start the next part. im doing this the whole mini except metals, which i usually save for last, to minimize the risk of getting any metal flakes in the other areas.

    Linear, as such.
    I tend to paint the largest areas of the model first, then the next largest, and so on. Conversely to Skellie I tend to paint metals early on because I seem to be incapable of painting metals cleanly, and I don't like getting metals on nicely painted skin! I try to leave the face until late, whereas a lot of other painters do that first. I try to paint the base first too, when possible, so that I don't lose interest after spending days on the model and rush the base...

    I tend to bascoat all the areas first, then shade, then highlight. Generally starting with the biggest areas first, although that depends on the model.

    You just need to take a look at my WIP thread to see I'm definitely a linear painter. I'll take it a step further and sometimes I'll break down large portions into smaller sections. For example with the White Speaker which was mostly skin I worked on the torso, then the arms, and then the legs.

    Hm. I'm not consistent, for sure. I think I most of the time paint area by area, but sometimes I need to get a better feel for the paint scheme, so I will block out some colours so I don't spend ages on something I'll later re-do as it didn't quite sit right.. And sometimes I get a bit bored with a model and need to move on to another part before it's really finished, and then come back and finish the area later.
