  1. Your painting is amazing as always! The video editing was spot-on! Perfect length and showed all the most important details 👍🏻
    I don’t have any MCP figures, but I still learn a lot from each of your videos. Thanks for all the work you do!

  2. This is the difference between you and me. I can paint models very well. You raise the bar and make it an art.
    I love the explanations you give for what often look at first like they might be odd colour choices, and they always work.
    Stunning Mark, stunning.
    Oh, and nice William Blake quote 😁

  3. I just want say you do the most comprehensive, high quality, informative and enjoyable to watch tutorials on this site.

    Just want to say thanks for the great content and have you considered painting something dwarf themed

  4. The disembodied hands and voice got me again. I can't be interrupted nor distracted when one of your videos is playing. Craftmanship and entertainment in one. Darn near mesmerizing.
