Hello 2 everyone!

Post by Josh8596 on Fri Dec 28, 2012 7:07 pm

Just wanted to take a minute and say hey to everyone. My name is Josh and im from Missouri. I am very new to face painting as well as actually using the forum. I stalked it behind the scenes for a while though and finally talked myself into making my own profile. Which brings me to my avatar., it is far from as good as any of you do, but I felt like i might as well do it since everyone else does. I only started painting in October but i havent put my brush down yet, its very addicting. I also hope everyone had a great Christmas santa and starts the new year off with a bang Smile

Thanks, I just get intimidated by all of the awesome stuff i see everyone do. Then I have to tell myself you only started 2 months ago., youll get there one day. Thanks for that, now next time I feel the urge to post a pic ill just go ahead and do it.

Hey Josh! I'm also from Missouri, until a couple of years ago. And I just started facepainting seriously in September. This is a great group of people who share their time and talent.

Oh, there are lots of us who are very new. Plus, people progress at different speeds, so there are always several people working on teardrops, or shadowing, or whatever it is you're doing.

We have a newbie challenge going on the New To Face Paintng board. It's not a contest, just a way to paint a variety of things and show them to your colleagues. Please join us!

This happened to me too. I just started last June and have been taking it pretty slow because I want to improve considerably before I go all out marketing myself. I was getting so intimidated by comparing myself to people that have been doing this for years. Itís the perfectionsist in me that holds me back. I actually deleted my facebook account so I can actually paint and practice instead of researching and comparing. I already have thousands of pics in my inspiration folder and Iím FINALLY getting around to making things happen.
