    2018 Painting Contests

    Where do I find the IP sign ups? Not that I'm in a rush to be a masochist again or anything...

    Adrenaline buzz... in my case it more like pure panic!

    Anyone else feel that there’s a miniature sized hole in their life right now? What to do now? When’s the next competition?
  6. I'm going to have a go at my first bust soon too, yours is looking great so far. I'm afraid of the larger areas of skin! I will maybe do some more work on my Round 2 entry (gremlins on the boat) as one of them has fallen off! Other than that, no plans other than find another competition to try

    I think we were equal best. I would have been happy either way as we were both most excellent

    Congratulations to absolutely everyone who won, took part, judged, commented and organised. Special congrats to @Octavus and @Kai. It was an honour to compete with everybody and I have learned so much through this competition. Thank you to the esteemed judging panel for all your feedback, it has been appreciated and taken on board (and was the main reason I wanted to enter). Shall we do it all again next year? :D
  9. Oooo, what fun! Lets see... 1) I liked my first round entry most, the miner because it was the simplest and most effective. I had hoped to keep them all in that vein but it was not to be and I overcomplicated some of my later ones I think. 2) Gosh so many I loved! I have to say I loved @glamage Round 3 entry, "Stranger Egg". Also @Infern0 Round 1 entry "Thud". Both simple but very striking. 3) I didn't really have any idea what themes to expect being my first IP and I was surprised by the technical theme of round 1. I suppose I might have hoped for a continuation of that with an NMM theme as it would have forced me into trying it. I have always shied away from attempting it. 4) My only regret was slacking in Round 3 and getting knocked out of Gold. I was so surprised to make it into gold in the first place so I wasn't really surprised to be knocked out of it. I just wish I had gone having submitted a better piece. 5) I wish IP had stayed in it's old slot of springtime as the end of the year is usually really busy for me workwise. I found I had very little time and I had to compromise my painting quality a lot. I was working away from home for a few weeks too (that contributed to my awful effort in round 3). I can't really moan too much though. I've achieved way more than I thought I would and I'm really proud to have made it through to the end.

    @Stark I totally missed all of this "drama" all I knew was that you had dropped out. I don't have much to say on the matter as I kind of see both sides but there is a huge grey area in there. The part I find the most annoying is that this "friend" decided to drop you in it after helping you!!! Some friend... Of all the people in the competition I claim the right to be the most annoyed with you as you knocked me out of the Gold Tier in round 3 (quite rightly) I am sad it's ended this way for you but hope you will be back next year so I can get my revenge brush vs brush. Good luck with your game centre, it looks absolutely amazing!!!
  11. @Hellogre I’m just glad to have finished! Yours looks brilliant and has a lot more painting in it than mine so I’m happy either way.
  12. I don’t know why the countdown isn’t working for me. I always get confused with time zones as I’m GMT so I’m 6 hours ahead I think. I also get confused when it’s midnight is it the end of the day before (31st) or the end of 1st and then my head goes boom because I overthink it. I also hate time travel movies and trying to talk to friends across time zones. I can’t fathom how it’s daylight there and night here. So stupid but I really neeeded that countdown to work

  14. OK done. I have no idea if I'm on time as it's 6am here and, quite honestly, I've had a few gins and I now need to sleep for a day. Good luck everyone and HAPPY NEW YEAR all the way from the home of Hogmanay and Auld Lang Syne, Scotland. Land may yer lums reek
