2011 Reaper Summer Painting Contest

40 posts in this topic

Man, it's hot! Seriously. Too hot to go out and play. Too hot to travel anywhere. Best just stay inside and try to beat the heat. I know! Nothing says "stay indoors" quite like a painting contest, right?

 

Announcing Reaper's 2011 Summertime Painting contest.

 

It's summer, but anything goes for the contest as long as it's one of our figures. As usual, entries that are built with an internal consistency in mind will be considered more highly than others. In other words, we like fun and clever. Be fun and clever.

 

Weigh your chances, enter wisely. Enter as many times as you like, but only one entry per user will be eligible for the final vote. Attach your entries to this thread.

 

This thread will be locked September 5th, 2011 (1 minute after midnight, CST). Our staff will pick their favorite entries, then a week later you guys will be able to vote on those favorites. And three lucky people will get a lovely gift certificate.

 

Prizes:

1st: $50 Gift Certificate

2nd: $25 Gift Certificate

3rd: $15 Gift Certificate

 

 

Fine print:

Reaper reserves the right to remove entries if deemed inappropriate, but the general nudity rules will be lifted for this contest.

Inappropriate in this case includes a non-Reaper figure.

You can post a side-by-side image featuring two different views of your entry if you need.

Photoshopping your entry is strictly prohibited. "Photoshopping" includes digital airbrushing, adding a background, adding a logo, that sort of thing. Cropping and levels/color balance correction are fine.

Enter as many times as you like, but only one entry per user will be eligible for the final vote.

Previously posted stuff is fair game. This is a friendly contest.

The certificates will be redeemable through the Reaper Online Store.

Reaper can clarify and amend rules at will.

Go ahead and have your friends vote, but many votes from the same IP address will likely be ignored. Especially if your piece isn't that great. No peeing in the pool!

 

Posting Guidelines:

Please attach your entries using the forum uploading feature or hotlink from the Inspiration Gallery. We want to make sure they're visible at all times.

Please keep critiques and any other chatter to yourselves within the thread. Any non-entry posting can be deleted at any time.

 

Begin!

Well, don't expect the same quality of paint job here. And really don't expect the same quality of photos, with my old janky camera and horrible skills.

 

But, you can't win if you don't play. Here's one I did recently for my son. It's not great, but he liked it.

More than one, you say? Don't mind if I do.

 

Here's another one, also painted for my son.

Being the summer contest, and knowing how well Texas has done with the heat this year, here's an entry to cool things down:

Okay, first post ever on the Reaper boards, so "Hi!" This is Sir Keron from a recent diorama of mine (which you can see part of in the background).post-7158-13136036674368_thumb.jpgpost-7158-13136036901771_thumb.jpgpost-7158-1313603714107_thumb.jpg

I give you the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People Eater. (Basically a DnD v3.5 Beholder, with the Half-Fiend template. Yes, I know Beholders can fly on their own, but the template clearly says it adds bat-like wings, so this Purple People Eater has vestigal wings.) The three different Reaper Mini sets I usd to make this are #14537: Xeldorian, Tyrant of Darkness, #03440: Creature Components II, and #03182: Demonic Wings

Okay I think that's all done, but I am by no means, in any way, sure these will show up. First time Reaper forum too!

 

Also I have a question. Could I add another mini he is the reaper mini, BUT on his base is a LOTR warhammer soldier that has been chopped up and converted. Needless to say, he IS NOT A REAPER MINI. But just wondered if he'd be deemed eligible? Thanks.

 

EDIT: Apologies for the shadow at the bottom of almost every shot, the lens on my camera sticks out and it casts a shadow when it flashes.... a slight manufacturing oversight methinks....
