Welcome to the Painting Challenge. Here you will find the fabulous, fevered work from miniature painters from around the world. While participants come from every colour, gender, age and nationality, they have at least three things in common: they love miniatures, enjoy a supportive community and they have all taken the Challenge.
This site features the current year's event along with the archives of past Challenges.
Enjoy your visit and remember to come back soon.
Hello! This is my first year participating in the painting challenge, although I have watched others participate for years. For my first post, I thought something winter-y would be nice, so I picked Jolie from my Reaper stash. Since it took me 8 days to post, I am realizing that I will have to pick up the pace.
Mfg: Reaper Miniatures
Product: 02835: Jolie, Female Scribe
Jolie is likely to turn unsuspecting visitors to icicles...
Writing small words on the book was easier than i suspected.
The base was made from Sculpy clay and a Green Stuff World roller. Making bases with these rollers is very fun!
The accessories in the back could have more detail. Something to work on for next time.
First off Deborah, welcome to the Painting Challenge.
This is a superbly painted figure. I really like your choice of colours and your brush control for her facial features is terrific (the eyes are amazing). I also like your bespoke base, especially the ring of frost around Jolie - a very nice effect (I say 'nice' when it is currently -44 C here with the wind chill).
I'm going to mark this one down for 'Sarah's Choice' as I'm sure she'll be very impressed with it.
7 points for your debut on the roster, which includes a few more for your customizations. Lovely work and again, welcome to the Challenge Deborah.
