I'll fix the links for you. Just tell me where to point to.

edit: Most of the links are fixed and pics are back. Will find the "missing" ones if possible and get those fixed as well.

Thanks for pointing me to the pics Rodney!

Just a quick technique question. When shooting fades or shadows, do you shoot towards the object you're shadowing, away from the object you're shadowing, or perpendicular to the object?

I have some good info for you guys if your getting paint peel as you lift the masking tape. Its been biting me in the ass alot this past week so ive been sanding redoing repeat. Then i tried 2K thinners with my basecoat instead of normal thinners. The difference was incredible, instead of the matte finish I USED to get with the other thinners, 2k gave me this beautiful gloss finish where masking tape peels off easily without a hitch. I even tried the highest tack masking tapes and they all peeled off great.

Ps. I mixed it 1 part paint and 1 part 2k thinners. I wasnt sure of the proper ratio as i didnt have any instructions. My local paint shop told me to try 50/50.

Hope this can save some of you the heartache i had.
