For the last three years, I've gotten to attend Origins in Ohio, and have really loved doing the Reaper Speedpaint (and even won last year). I was hoping to go and participate in the Speedpaint again this year, but I was going through the Origins 2019 event schedule and didn't see a single entry from Reaper. Is Reaper not going to be at Origins this year, or at least not hosting any events?

So, I went to Origins this weekend and entered the Reaper Speed-Paint. I was only supposed to be at the con on Friday and Saturday, but I paved on Friday and won my Saturday semifinal, so I called in sick on Sunday so I could compete in the finals, where I managed to pull off a win. Friday was the scarecrow, Saturday was the hobgoblin, and Sunday they gave us the Jungle Titan. I'd already painted two of the three before, which certainly didn't hurt when it came go time.
I didn't get a chance to get pictures in my photo studio before heading out on vacation, so these are the shots I took with my phone at the convention.
We had 45 minutes in round 1, 50 minutes in round 2, and a whopping 60 minutes in round 3.
My skills with collages with the new photo shop I got for Xmas are non existent, so I thought I would link my Inspiration Gallery Pics if people cared to look at most of the Reaper Minis I painted this year. There maybe one or two that were done prior to this year, But they are still there....
Also I will link my RPChallenge links as well, some will be the same as the Gallery, just with more pics!

I just picked up my paint brush again in mid April as a form of therapy, to keep my mind off of things better not dwelt on...
Following the forums starting in July has really kicked up my game, as you can see if you start with the earliest minis I posted, and compared them to what I am achieving now..
Getting new GOOD brushes, learning how to use a wet palette and reading things here have been the keys to my improvement.
So many thanks to everyone that commented about anything I posted, you certainly helped me out!
Heck you guys helped me get 2 minis into the STORE!
02656: Demon Marbrezuk
Special Thanks to our own "Dark Enabler", Ub3r_N3rd whom I have pestered unmercifully with questions since August when the Fall Exchange went Live! He was (and IS!) a font of good information and advice, and was more than patient with me...
So it was a Great time for me!
So here's what I finished this year, most of it from Reaper:
A whole bunch of halflings and gnomes. A couple of frost giants: Reaper's Frorigh and Otherworld Miniatures' nameless giant. Dragons (and one ice wyrm). I actually made bases for the dragons (no, really!), so I should try to find later photos of them as well, and do Show-Off threads for their finished forms.
Terrain pieces from Itar's Workshop, some sci fi, and lots of aquatic creatures. Standing stones both sinister and benevolent from Naloomi's Workshop (Hijad the Pirate amongst the standing stones is only there for scale). Lots of Mouslings and more aquatic critters. The kraken is done but I haven't made a Show-Off thread for it either, which is why the casual garden photography. And two Discworld characters, Granny Weatherwax and Samuel Vimes, from Micro Art Studio.
