Well, it is hard to get a following on a blog when you never write. That is my fault, and, again, I will try to amend this. My friend started a blog a few years ago, and through consistent posting, he has a good following (and he has good stuff to say).
Ghengis Con 2015 has come and gone. This year was fun for me as I taught for the first time. It was a bit stressful as I worried about how to fill 2 hours. I taught 3 classes this time around (2 basic and basic basing). I was worried most about basing, and that one went the best for me.
But, Ghengis. I entered two figures this year. A Dark Sword miniature and a Gimli. I entered them both as single miniatures, but at the last moment, I moved Gimli to diorama/vignette as only your best mini will get consideration per category, and I felt the mage was best.
As expected, I didn’t place in single miniature, but from what I understand, I did make first cut, and that is progress! So I am happy. Plus, I am very happy with that figure.
Here she is….
I am very happy with her, but I got feedback from a fellow painter after the competition, and I have a LOT to improve on. But with each successive year, I have improved, and that is all I can hope for. It is weird being a state now with my painting that I am becoming happy with projects. It is a nice place to be in.
Now on to Gimli. Gimli took 3rd in its category! Yeah!
