What would YOU like to see taught next year

Recommended Posts

I appreciate the advice.  My problem is that I can find a reference to the anatomy,  but changing the scale to mini size and painting the shadow/highlight where it does not exist on the sculpt of the mini is beyond me.

 

I may actually have that book.  I'll look.

I'll be going this year, and pondered seeing if I could get approved to teach a class or two.

 

Also went through the entire list, and compiled a summary of sorts for myself. There are some great suggestions, and I'd even feel comfortable teaching some of them.

 

 

Which, actually -- if anybody sees anything interesting in my list of projects on my profile, let me know. /shrug

Last year there was a presentation by Kathryn Fields on 'The rise of Fantasy Miniatures'. I went and found it interesting. But I think it could be expanded in several ways. Would more people be interested in classes/presentations on the collecting side of the hobby?

      The Dark Sword Miniatures Manufacturer Awards are open to all painters. To be eligible for the prize support listed, the entries must be new entries, never before posted online or entered into any other painting competitions. In addition, no entries can be commissions from Dark Sword Miniatures for painted studio models. This means Dark Sword studio painters can enter if they so desire, but their entries must be brand new creations not commissioned from Dark Sword and must also adhere to the eligibility requirements above.
       
      Kabuki - 300 Euro Prize for the best Kabuki Miniature, regardless of category, in the painting competition. We are looking for a way to involve Rodolfo in the judging this year.
       
      Bombshell Miniatures
      Bombshell Miniatures presents the 2018 Golden Maelee Awards. This is a Sponsored Award section of the annual Reaper Master Series Open Painting Contest. Entries will be awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Maelee trophies.
       
      Entries will need to feature at least one or more Bombshell Miniatures as the prominent subject. This can be anything from Babes, Sidekicks, Kritterkins, to robots, or busts. Each entry will be judged on its own merit of painting execution, presentation, and skill.

      Entries from artists who have been professionally commissioned by Bombshell Miniatures are ineligible.

      Each category winner will receive a $100 Talon Games Gift Certificate and a
      Trophy.
       
      This first post in the thread will be updated with other manufacturers as we receive them.

      So, how does one go about finding folks who are looking to split a room for the con? I'm gonna be able to go this year, and the forum description said this is the place to do it, but I dont see a relevant thread. Let me know if there's a better place, I guess?
       
      While it wouldnt be the first con I've spent sleeping in the bushes outside the convention center, Texas sounds hotter than CT, so I am currently looking to share, if anyone has a free corner they're looking to fill. So, let me know and we can talk money, I guess? Bonus points if you're flying in and we can carpool to and from together - I pack light and ship well! :)

      So as a lot of folks around these here electronic parts know, I have barely hobbied since ReaperCon, due to brain weasel infestation...
      So for the past few days, I have tried to ease my way back in by working on 'risers' for my display case...
      These are chunks of blue insulation foam, cut to fit on my table saw (what a mess it makes!)
      Then sprayed Grey with Stynylrez primer through my airbrush.
       
      Overall case:

      Started life as the 'wings' of an entertainment center, and I added the LED lights scavenged from work...
      Left side is still in progress... (Top to bottom)



      A lonely DDS2
      a bare section that I sprayed the foam for tonight (The ex suggested that I put figures with a special value to me in it, old characters and such, likely, exchanges and gifts will end up in there as well, and the first 25mm mini that I ever painted. Rest will be underground critters and whatever else I can cram in there to get them off my bookcases....)
      Frostgrave terrain and warbands...
       
      Right side:



      Top is Demons and devils, Undead and pillars, and some of my medal wining Reapercon stuff
      Middle is some bigger things...
      Bottom is Giants and wilderness type critters....
       
      Thanks for taking a peek!

      An Australian documentary about the Bristol Beaufighter serving in the South West Pacific during WWII...
       
      Interesting for an American to see something like this, as most documentaries I see are either American, or British....
