March 2016 Painting Contest!

March 2016 Painting Contest!

Postby Talus » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:25 pm

Welcome to another edition of ''Paint Your Butts Off!''

After some very nice entries last month, and more than a little wrist cramp, i'm expecting all of you to raise your game this month!

No entries smaller than a skyscraper will be accepted!

-talks to a voice in his head-

ok i've just been told i can't use that rule! so anything goes!

To highlight for those who are new to these contests (Honestly i'm so used to the same people entering all the time, i never considered new people would join in!), when submitting a final entry to the gallery, please only submit a single picture! this makes it so much easier for the voting poll, and ensures that entries arent lost in a cluttered gallery! Montage shots are perfectly acceptable, and encouraged since it helps show off all the angles of your entry!

While this thread is going up early for entries, i must insist that even if you post up an entry, and it gets accepted before the 1st of March, that you hold off putting paint to it until the 1st of March! This is purely to give people the same amount of time to work on an entry and to discourage jumping the gun!

Key dates to remember are these:

Entry closes on the 23rd of March
Contestants have until Midnight on the 28th to submit a final entry,
If all entrants have submitted a final entry to the gallery, voting may be held earlier!
Voting starts 00.01 GMT on the 29th
Voting ends 00.01 GMT on the 31st.


Best of luck to you all!


Entrants so far:


Darklighter - Storm RaVeN
Rotweillerofjustice - assorted Tyrannids
Spack - Palpatines Throne
Talus - Dropzone Monorail
Cain - Dropzone Battlebus's and Hellhog
Angelwing - Scarab Swarm

I'm considering a special contest for April...

something along the lines of ''Who can mimic Talus's style of painting the best''!

thoughts? :P

Lol I have a twist to that Talus, I've always wondered how a model would turn out if I only used my left (off) hand... To run as a comp as it would require a lot of participant honesty but could be fun for a laugh? I'll also get digging in my vast to do pile to see what I'll be entering next month.

I won't be able to enter in April as I will be on my holiday for half of the month.

Ok hows about this

When not painting things for March, we each think of a challenge for April

Each person who enters has to take one of those challenges

so far its:

Impersonate Talus's painting style
Paint with your off hand

3 tyranid warriors, one with scything talons and venom cannon, one with scything talons and twin boneswords and one with rending claws and lashwhip bonesword combo. Picture is a bit small for me to see any biomorph upgrades.
I have to say its a bit of an odd equipment loadout.
