Peace and blessings,  brothers and sisters. The crew at Massive Voodoo have let loose their call for their 2017 Challenge.

 

The crew at Massive Voodoo set out challenges to their viewers in order to push our abilities past our comfort zone. This year they have two (2) Challenges for us!

 

1. Create a base using water effects.

 

2. Paint a Disney Infinity character.

 

There are limitations in this challenge - like on the basing Challenge: the goal is to create a base with a water effect, not to focus on a figure. They said we can use a small animal to accent the base, and Reaper has some awesome Familiars we can use. Also, Infinity Challenge is one figure, not multiple, which allows us to focus doing our best on one figure. Full details can be found by clicking on the link. 

 

I heard that little voice too: "I cannot win this! Why should I even try?" 

Well shut the front door little-voice-in-my-head! 

 

I know I have much to learn and improve in my own Art, which is why this is a Challenge. We cannot lose: we win just by pushing past our comfort zone and learning more about our beloved hobby. :D

 

I said it before and I will keep repeating it: I believe in you. I see the awesome work you all do, and you believe in me too. That love helps me believe in myself and makes me want to work harder to push past my own limits.

 

Plus we get to paint a character from the Disney franchise - which includes Marvel and Star Wars! I didn't even consider painting these as well as playing with them! ( Don't judge too harshly. Elsa kicks butt.)

 

For a full list of characters available, check 'em out here:

You can find them individually and inexpensively on eBay. 

 

Now, if you will excuse me: I have some Reaper Familiars to peruse. :D

 

May your efforts be rewarded and blessed!

I already sent in my Female Snake/Seamonster (Queen Shaernagathu) for the water base entry in this contest. I won't post final pics on here as that'll get me DQ'd from the contest, but I'm looking forward to posting after reapercon as I'll also enter her there into the Open Category.

I should take a shot at this.  Been a while since I've played with water effects, but they have come out for me petty well in the past...

I should too.  I've been in a slump but I have a diorama idea that will require a bunch of water, and I've never tried any.  So some test pieces may be in order.

My piece won't be judged. It has a full figure in it. The contest for water bases is supposed to be just about the water, no full figures allowed. My bad for not fully reading the rules. 

 

I may try to do a water base to enter it, but I'll have to do it between projects.

I'm working on a small water themed base, kind of a tiny magic watering hole

Can't wait to see it!

 

I don't know if I'll be able to do a small water base before reapercon and when this contest closes.

      I'm working on this model at the moment:
       
      I'm looking ahead towards the base for the tree portion.  I want the tree to be erupting from wet, chunky, sloppy mud.  Something like this this stock photo, minus the two guys.  Just mud.
       
      Any suggestions on materials for making that?  Plaster?  Red oxide paste?  Something else?

      Blah, can't win lately. Con, sick, travel, travel, drama....sorry I'm late y'all.

      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      September 25th is national comic book day! Paint a mini to resemble a comic book character of your choice (Bonus points* for any from the "League of regrettable superheroes/supervillains"

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      3 Families of color only. The 'typical' halloween colors of orange, purple, and black. You can only use colors that have "orange" "purple" or "black" as part of their names, and all 3 colors must be present on the figure.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Modify a mini (besides the gelatinous cube/large fire elemental) to have an actual flickering light-source inside of it (with the battery concealed somehow), like a jack-o-lantern. The more creative the better, obviously.

      Good luck

      *The game is made up and the points don't matter

      I was wondering if anyone has used gel medium for making water effects and how it went? I'm making a diorama and need to do water effects but the base doesn't really allow for me to pour resin. I'm making a little stream and need to figure out the best way to do this. Or if there are any other easy ways to do water effects would also be appreciated.

      Ok, just came across this bizarre trailer on Youtube of  Russian Fantasy Movie produced by Disney.  I think it's a real thing, at least according to this Hollywood reporter article:   http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-russia-local-language-movies-885954
       
       
      Anyway if you want to see Baba Yaga in her flying mortar, plus a great shot of her hut running, check it out...
