  1. I mentioned this in my OP too and fully agree.
  2. I really dig the fourth idea. I'd dig more materials classes like painting realistic tartan, jeans, wool, leather, etc.
  3. I guess where you see a high note I saw sour faces and frustration. I saw people leaving early and handing their bucks off as they lost any hope of being able to compete. I heard people say, when I expressed frustration about the auction, that they don't go anymore because of the format. I'm thinking of how this event is growing with more and more new people who will have no idea they need to pool their bucks and a system that rewards only those in the know. Yes, people can still pool raffle tickets but at least it won't be people openly driving up prices and cutting down others. I also di
  4. Personally, I love that it is Labor Day weekend. Gave me an extra recovery day and I usually don't have anything going on this time of year. October is rough for me.
  5. Wow! I loved your blog about this. Much deserved and thank you for your feedback at the con!
  6. I actually think this is the ideal/perfect scenario. If you judged a piece favorably without knowing who painted it, you can be sure you had no bias in judging it. I think bias is inherent/human nature. I'm not saying any of the judging was intentionally favorable/unfavorable as I simply am too new to the community to even know that. However, it was clear to me that many of the pro artists and old school patrons are familiar with each other, even if they're not friends. So even if bowing out of judging a friend, you may be familiar with other names even if it's just hearsay or brief intera
  7. I forgot about all the mini maker categories. Good points.
  8. Honestly, would limiting entries help? There's no reason really for anyone to submit more than 2 to any category and it takes up judges valuable time to pick the best, especially with so many entries now. PS I want to thank Kuro Cleanbrush for side-barring with me via messages and giving me feedback on my work.
  9. I hope they send us an email when the room block is open. I don't want to miss it this time.
  10. This was my first year at ReaperCon and from speaking with others, this was the event's first year at this venue and the largest one yet. I wanted to give a general review and my feedback as a newbie attendee and as someone with experience managing tabletop events and being on concomms. I will not be reviewing things that I did not participate in (metal trade, board games and RPGs). I thought this could also kick off other people's feedback and reviews. Overall I loved it! I loved how casual this convention was and how focused it was on miniatures and painting. I thi
  11. Hmm this sort of surprises me because going by this criteria, I definitely feel my piece was a silver and not a bronze. I did have one judge give me a silver and two a bronze. I was happy with my bronzes assuming the criteria must be pretty hardcore until I saw this. I did a lot of shading and blending and felt really good with my face; I was even complimented on the face by a Gold Sophie winner. I love the format of this competition, I guess I just wish the judging was a little more cut and dry so it's not so dependent on each judge's taste at that moment.
