Hi all (my first post here )!
Hope you`ll enjoy my nurgle sorcerer :
this piece was GD UK 2005 entry (made to the finals), and my very first GD entry. I must admit that the level of the competition was overwhelming. Met some fantastic people there.
Had much fun making it !
Nice, I love the eye.
ugh, unbelievable... I'll never achieve that level of painting or anything like it. Sigh~
An excellent model! I love it.
thanks for the feedback
@Andusciassus : I`ll surely do
I've seen this model before and I love it! Excellent work and I think the "critics" on CMON have rated your piece too low IMO. Then again, those people are animals... haha.Originally Posted by Pshemas
I'm planning on entering the GD competition in Atlanta next year and it'll be my first time doing anything like this and I've only been painting about 7-8 months combined. How nervous were you at the time? Do you have any advice for those of us aspiring to Golden Demonhood? Did you at least get some sort of Certificate for being a finalist? Anything to help ease the fear of the unknown would be appreciate.
Again, great work and welcome to the Librarium!
@Undeadair : you`re painting only for 8 months? saw your work - great results for this time.
was I nervous before GD? to be honest not at all. it`s all the matter of the attitude. i haven`t went there to win, rather to have fun and see some models painted by some of the best painters in the world. also I knew my entry was a bit rushed (even though i like it )- it have turned out that I have enough cash and I`m able to go around 2-3 weeks before the event (to be honest I was adding some finishing touches the day before GD). adding my regular work to this it haven`t left me much time for painting so as I`ve said I did it mostly for fun and because I think it`s great to see your mini amongst even better models .
so my advice would be not to stress too much about the whole thing. if you`re planning to enter I think you should deeply think what you wish to do. remember, there will propably be lots of other well painted models out there, so you should have something that will draw the attention of the judges. good idea could beat technical skills. I know that setting the mood is not the easiest thing, but it`s worth it. when you`ll decide what you`ll be doing concentrate on that, don`t try to cram too many ideas on one model cause it`ll look like a mess.
check out the winners of the recent gd competitions (at http://demonwinner.free.fr/ for example) - some of them concentrated on a one good thought.
well, that`s what I think about it at least ....
oh, and yes, i got a certificate. you could see it here: http://leprechaunstudio.bool.pl/auct...ertificate.jpg
Yeah, I guess what i'm most nervous about is that my models will look like crap next to the "real" painters. I'm doing this to have fun and plan on painting my entire army this way and I definitely have the idea down. I'm going to enter the squad catagory as it gives me the opportunity to spread out some good ideas over 6 different models, rather than trying to cram everything into one. I don't expect to win, but on the other hand, I don't want my models to stand out as an embarassment, you know?Originally Posted by Pshemas
Thanks for the advice!
Wow thats brilliant and youve only been painting for 8 months!!! My friend is (if you dont mind me saying) simialr to you. He has natural talent for this kind of work. He wanted to enter and he had a logan grimnar modle spare that he painted in 40 mins or so and ended up coming 4th! Hes only 14 to (same as me). We use to be competing against each other but now im getting worse at painting and better at gaming... Oh well congratulations
