Welcome to my 12 hour dragon challenge, loosely based on Professir Buglips original 7 day challenges. Why only 12 hours you might say? Well, there appear to be quite a few of us who have difficulty stitching together two, much less seven, days of consecutive painting sessions. Therefore, I'm trying to pathfind a challenge that fits for the more time deficient among us! If you don't know what in the world I'm talking about, you need to check out the latest one to accept the challenge, OneBoot's Crazy Too Kaladrax WIP. The goblin's challenge is to paint a large centerpiece figure (Kaladrax, Dragons Don't Share 2, etc) in seven calender days. There are several rules that go with it, which you can read in the WIP linked. Since this is a different challenge, a few twists are in order. So, my rules for the 12 hour dragon challenge are: 1) No using a brush larger than a standard size 0. The Professir is going to codify this shortly, but roughly 10mm long is all you get. 2) The brush you select is the ONLY thing that is allowed to apply paint to the figure. This means just one brush! Dry brush, if you dare. 3) You have only a straight 12 hours from the start of the challenge to finish. Any breaks, meals, family outings take away from that time. Plan ahead. 4) The only prep that is allowed beforehand is boiling and setting the figure (if in Bones), fit checking the parts, pinning the legs if needed, and making accomodations on the base by drilling holes for the pins. No mold lines may be removed, no primer applied, no gaps filled, and no other work on the base is allowed. 5) Paint must be applied by only the brush bristles. No finger painting or using the handle of the brush to dot the eyes. 6) Brush may not be altered, other than from normal use. And bristles that fall out are excluded from eligibility. 7) Single painter only, no teaming up with someone to work in shifts. 8) The figure must have pigmented paint on all visible surfaces, less minor, incidental gaps where it is joined or based. It's a bit of a large set of rules, but I've been trying to find ways to "cheat" at Buglips' challenge for a while, so I've had time to think about it. I was thinking about Livestreaming on YouTube, but I think I may skip that. If there's interest, I did manage to figure it out. I have to cut it up in several blocks, and there's no point in filming me eat lunch or dinner. But let's start with the beginning picture, and then I'll see you at Monday, 5/30, at 8am (Mountain time) for the start of the challenge.
