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.
From DebD: Dark Sword: Female Ranger with Bow (10 points)
This week I had a bit of fun with Dark Sword's Female Ranger. I wanted to try to create a forest scene and use bits of nature. I really enjoyed this project. Surprisingly, bark is very fun to work with! Scale: 28mm Mfg: Dark Sword Miniatures Product: Female Ranger with Bow Material: Metal
The bow was added to the model. It is a metal spear that I clipped and filed down.
The trees are twigs, bark and moss found on a hike and later dried in the oven. Some people bake cookies, I bake bark lol
The ferns are card stock paper that has been punched out with Green Stuff World's small branch punch.
The leaves in the trees and on the ground are birch seeds that have also been dried out.
One of these weeks, I will have more than one figure to post :)
1 x 28mm from Dark Sword
Wow, what an absolutely stunning vignette Deb.
The figure's ridiculous pose aside (What tortured mind comes up with these incongruous, quasi dance-class animations?), you've done a terrific job on the bow modification and the painting is top shelf, particularly her face.
The forest setting you've created is truly inspired and I really like what you've done with the various mixed media to achieve the overall effect (Note to self: I absolutely NEED that small branch punch thingy).
On top of the standard 5 points for the figure I'm giving you another 5 for the groundwork and bow modifications. Lovely work Deb!
