Eastern edge

Just a suggestion, some sort of support columns for those outer corners of the over hang also would work beside the suggestion by Theo for a dumpster.

I did consider supports under the awning, but decided against for simplicity and to allow for easier model movement under there. Floating awnings aren't too impractical, provided they're built from strong enough materials.

Playing with Contrast paints some more, this time trying for a layered shading effect rather than just glopping it on. Mixed results, but seems to work.

How much 'faster' do you feel you are getting good-enough-results with contrast paints, in comparison?

Under the couch

The 'just slop it on' approach is obviously faster than traditional blending or layering, and I was actually fairly happy with the results - for normal gaming, it would be more than adequate.

The layered shading above obviously took longer than that. It was a little faster than the same technique using Quickshades, but at the expense of a little less control due to the heavier pigment, but I think I need to experiment a little more to decide whether or not it's worth it.

Oily Joe’s looks great. I agree support posts might look a bit more realistic but the model is cleaner and more practical for gaming without them. I love that terrain sprue. So simple and fun for turning junk into cool terrain. I really like your extra touches of detail with the posters and graffiti.

Trying my hand at something slightly different, because I've had these canvas boards floating around in the storage room for years and wanted to do something with them...

Wow great idea, i have thought about trying to paint on a canvas ( to learn more about painting for 3d models ), but im not too sure its necessary, but im sure it would teach me alot about painting in general. But i cant draw at all. You are very good at drawing.

EDit - I have been watching alot of oil painting videos though, don't know why i just found it interesting. And this guy wyou probably already know called Bob Ross, i have been randomly watching his videos aswell, pretty interesting stuff if you are learning how to paint models aswell ( even though its a way way different method ).
