2011 Winter Painting Contest


Recommended Posts

  • Super Administrators

Welcome to our Winter online painting contest of 2011. This contest, while a winter contest, has no particular theme. However, 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 February 14th, 2011 (1 minute after midnight, CST). Our staff will pick their favorite entries, then you guys will be able to vote on those favorites. And three lucky people will get a lovely gift certificate.



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.

This is my entry for the contest entitled "A Pirate's Life For Me." The characters are from the Pirate Goblin and Powder Monkey pack. I actually had to buy this pack twice because the first monkey's right ankle snapped. I pinned it to repair it, but it's so small that the pin just ripped right through the side. At least now I have a second Pirate Goblin to paint up in the future.


The base was my first attempt at using clear resin for water effects. It was also the first time I ever used sculpey- the ocean floor and all of the parts for the dock were sculpted.


Here's the CMON Voting Link if you would like to throw me a vote. This also shows the miniature from all 4 sides.





I was unhappy with the quality of my previous picture so I played around with the light positions for my light tent and took some new snaps. New image is final version.
