Gunslinger the results

May 9, 2010

So, you’ve read the feedback, now it’s time to see the scores.

When we ask you to vote, we actually ask you to score each entry out of a total 20 points; 10 for how well the entry suits the theme – which in April was Gunslinger, and 10 points for style.

Painting challenges are not a ‘best painted mini’ competition, they are a personal challenge for each and everyone who enters. It takes a lot of courage sometimes to post your work to be scored by other people, but here at Sheffield Irregulars we have a ‘no meanness’ policy. This means we don’t encourage people to slag off anothers work. If you’ve taken the time to paint something, you should have pride in your work – and other people should respect that.

Each month we run a painting challenge to encourage you to try something new, to push yourself a little bit more than usual when you’re painting, and the themes make you think a little differently about approach each piece.

In April the theme was Gunslinger, and 5 members took up the challenge and presented their entries, which have been commented on and scored.

The points for each entry are totalled and then divided by the number of voters, creating an average score. The entrant with the highest overall score will receive a Merit Award trophy for their efforts – this is sponsored by Jonathan Shaw of BMF painting.

The votes are in, but before the results here is the feedback that has been left by members on each entry for the April painting challenge.

Not many members voted this time around which is a shame – hopefully more of you will get involved with voting for the May challenge later this month.

Big thanks to all those that took the time to check out the entries, vote and comment.
Remember – all comments are friendly and helpful, our no meanness policy prevents unnecessary commenting. (more…)
