Corvus' Miniatures

Painted sf & fantasy miniatures by Gerrie Schenck

Visit the Chest of Colors forums and upgrade your painting skills!

Some of you might know Chest of Colors as the homepage of some top painters from Poland. But behind the green facade of the front page lies an international community of artists of which I'm a proud member.

In my opinion it's the best forum around if you want to take your painting to a certain level. Of course there are lots of other forums out there, but these are usually oriented towards gamers (with all respect) and if you post something of a higher quality level there the usual response is "wow man, that looks great!". At Chest of Colors all pieces will receive constructive comments, even if it's a golden demon winner. Miniature painting is all about getting better and improving your techniques, but how can you achieve this without someone who points at your mistakes?

The heart of the message board are undoubtedly the Showcase and WIP (work in progress) forums. There are also separate forums to do brainstorming or ask for specific painting techniques. In the new releases forum we talk about new releases of all possible manufacturers. And there's much more!

I invite you over to introduce yourself in the introduction forum, post some of your stuff and get some comments on your work. It would be nice if you mention my blog in your introduction so that I can give you a warm welcome there :)

If you have never visited a real painting forum before, don't expect it to turn you into a Golden Demon winner in an instant. You will however get great feedback and this will improve your painting, that's for sure. The more you put in it (posting images of your own work), the more you will get out of it.

So....it's CMON-lite?

First of all it's a forum, not a gallery of some sort...

In my opinion it's better than CMON. I used to post a lot on CMON forums until a few years ago, the atmosphere on the forum changed a lot over the years and I wasn't really enjoying myself anymore over there.

You could also look at it that as it is smaller, there is a more personal touch

I only joined a week or two ago but I'm loving it there already.
