Painting Excuses Winter Wonderland

This was a wonderful experience for me. I really had to raise my own bar to crank out my idea. I'll save the other vignette I came up with for next year.<br /><br />The only drawback to the seasonal themes is I tend to loose interest in seasonal projects once is that season is over.

When do they usually post the winners for the contest? Did I miss it already?

Since the categories closed Thursday (I believe) we will probably not see results until next week or next weekend depending on how hard the judging is. I would say the later because there was a lot of great stuff entered in all the 3 categories.

 

I would like to wish everyone good luck and thank you all for entering some very beautiful pieces. I also want to thank MonkeySloth for putting on another great contest. Since he started doing this, we have had a lot more forum contests to participate in, which to me is great motivation to always push the envelope.It seems the more contests we enter in, the better our technique becomes.

Yeah, these contests really give us a reason to improve rather substantially!

 

I mean, visual representation here...

Thank you, MonkeySloth, for giving me even more reason to continue to improve ::D:

Got a few more yesterday (guess they were just waiting) so there's one left. We have 8 judges, including myself, and usually one doesn't have time (this time around it's Howard who's running a very popular kickstarter). I'm quite happy this time around as I gave a 2 week estimate and I'm going to come pretty close to it, just need to get everything finished up by this weekend as I'm getting married at the end of the month and if I don't get everything done soon I won't have time till April.

      For the past few months I've been working on a series of articles and videos of advice for people working on entries for the MSP Open. (Or anyone looking to improve their painting a little.) I've reviewed the most common issues that we see with entries and tried to provide both good explanations and before and after photo examples. My plan was to put this up before ReaperCon so you have the opportunity to go over your entries and see if you want to change anything before the contest. (And I'm sure many of us are still frantically painting anyway!)

      I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland.  But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs.
       
      I used these minis to make it.  The wendigo's head was chopped off.  Then I took the head of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body. 
       

       
      And I saved the body of the unicorn.  At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!
