Red Challenge: time to vote

November 30, 2010

The November painting challenge theme was: Red, and we’ve had some really great entries.

Please take time to look through them all A to G and use our form (link at bottom of page) to score each out of a possible 10 for how well they meet the theme (Red) and out of another 10 for style.

Remember this not about ‘the best painting’. Award style points for overall look, concept, awesome pose, cool base etc.

Please leave some helpful and friendly comments for each of our entrants, this is the place to leave tips, or point out (nicely) where to make improvements to improve the piece.

Red challenge entries

November 22, 2010

Theme: Red

Deadline: Sunday November 28th, 6pm London time

How to enter the challenge:

Post a comment on this thread and include:

  • A short title for your model (to be used on the voting form)
  • Some info on what you were trying to achieve, any techniques you used, how you found it.
  • A link to an online photo of your entry

A voting form will be made available on Sunday after the deadline where everyone can make helpful comments and score each entry on how well it meets the theme, and for style (scoring is anonymous). Voting will be open for about a week and the results and comments will be posted on this site.

Remember, our challenges are supposed to be fun, a chance to learn or try something new, or just to show off your mad skills! It’s not about being the best painter, it’s about pushing yourself and self improvement.

Looking forward to seeing your entries!

As previously mentioned the monthly painting challenge has trailed off recently – but it’s back!

The November challenge theme is simply: Red

Painting challenges

October 8, 2010

I think we’re all aware that interest in the painting challenges has been declining over the past few months.

The discussion running on the group over on Facebook at the moment seems to point to the themes not captivating enough interest – but everyone still likes the challenges. So, we’re going to spend October listening to your feedback and bring the painting challenge back in November, with a simple theme designed to have broad appeal.

In the meantime, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject, and we hope you’ll join in the November painting challenge.

Road Warrior – the vote

May 30, 2010

The May painting challenge theme was Road Warrior – and only two members managed to submit entries, but what a fantastic job they’ve both done.

These are really great, so please take the time to rate and leave friendly, helpful comments for both on our voting form.
