The Great Portal Paint-off and other stories

Ok, so, inbetween being ill and trying to squeeze in as many commissions as possible before christmas, I’ve managed to enter a knock-out style painting competition hosted by Portal Magazine .

essentially, for each round we have three weeks to get a display miniature ready, with each week being dedicated to a specific part of the display.

For example: This week our theme was fantasy, our basing theme was foliage and our technical challenge was TMM (True Metallic Metal), so at the end of the first week we had to show at least a built/primed base, at the end of the second week we had to show evidence of significant TMM work being done and obviously a completed display at the end of the third week.

Trouble is, I entered late, so only have two weeks to get it all done!

Progress isn’t too bad, foliage needs to be added in at the end and its not quite as ‘epic’ in its scope as some of the other entries, simply due to time.

In other news, the carnosaur I entered into Golden Demon 2013 is in this months issue of Warhammer Visions!!

Its my first bit of work that’s been shown in the mag and I’m super chuffed to say the least!

And here’s an Eldar flyer I’ve been working on for a friend, rather pleased with the airbrushing on this one.
