So with that I'd like to thank Curt for hosting this wonderful event yet again! A huge push from you once again. And thanks to the lovely Sarah for allowing all this to happen :) The challenge is really a great way to get some painting motivation and have things move forward fast. Thanks to the generous sponsors as well for providing prizes to this! And finally thanks to all the other participants! There have been some extremely inspiring entries from you and it has been great to follow your progress.
Thank you so much Samuli (and congratulations on hitting your target)! Samwell is one of my favourite characters from Martin's series (I also have deep affection for his pessimistic compatriot 'Dolorous Edd'). I think you've done a brilliant job on the blacks on this figure. As you say, doing black contrasts can be quite tricky, but you've pulled it off in style. I also love the red interior detail of Samwell's cloak - a very nice counterpoint.
But more importantly thank you for joining us again this year Samuli. I always value your participation and support. I wish you the best this spring and summer I hope we can do it again this coming autumn. Best regards.
