Review: Private Coaching with Markus

by Roman aka jar

"I went to Roman to learn a bit more about painting skin tone, female skin tone in particular, and eyes.  But I left with a so increadible toolbox and an understanding on how the surroundings, the enviroment and lightning affect all the colors we apply to our miniatures. I had several "aha-moments" and in the end I started to answer my own questions as they appeared during painting. Roman is a so relaxed teacher and coach and so good at teaching what many others miss: the whys. These are, in my opinion, a bit more important to understand and master than the how techniques. 

And maybe the most important leasson was - the joy of painting."

I had such a great time with Markus.
So impressed by the great gift of my students from Sweden: The Poo-nettes.

As a teacher I mainly enjoy the moment of "click"
that I am trying to tickle with my teaching schedule. If you see them happen as a teacher it is the greatest gift. Seeing other humans happy is the greatest joy and I am happy that I can throw my happy painting at them ...

Markus indeed learnt a big deal about happy painting and how to tackle a project with a self-created vision. It was a true joy to welcome you, Markus. Even it was back in 2017 and time runs so fast and so much happened that this comes to the jungle quite late now.

Keep on happy painting!


Tip of the week

by Roman aka jar

Eat more healthy breakfast!
It will focus your energies through all of the day :)
For me these "superbowl creations" are a real joy to create. They do take about 20 Minutes each morning, but could also be done in 11,5 minutes if in a hurry. It feels like creating a beautiful base for a figure :)

Keep on happy painting!

it has been some time.
Some time since the jungle rolled like it used to roll.

I, for my part had reasons for this. 
Moments of truth. I had to slow down life to understand some things in my private life. I slowed down on Massive Voodoo. In the meantime things in life changed and I am in the middle to progress and heal. Love and life can be a mysterious thing and sometimes you need hard lessons to learn something. I did.

Best thing I did this year was quitting to travel for painting seminars. I was so burned out and now I am realizing how my heart arrives in my hometown, Augsburg. Unbelievable beautiful. So, you won't see me travel for happy painting lessons in 2018, but you are always welcome to visit one of my seminars in Augsburg, Germany or even contact me for private lessons.

I do not want to say much more on this subject as there are always three sides of a story and so on. All I can say is that the massive jungle of miniature love is back on track and there is tons to do and create with you, our readers. Are you still there?

We got plenty to tell from the past months.
Tons of reviews of Roman teaching seminars and private coachings with great students, tutorials, tip of the weeks, musica and finished miniatures. Even event reports like a small review of the Duke of Bavaria 2018, a big update on the MV Zombie Community project and a private coaching in the MV studio with Kirill Kanaev.

More to come in the next days!
Stay tuned!
