We are a bit late for starting the May Painting Competition, and we apologize for this, as we made a last minute change to the model selected. You see, when we picked this month's model, we completely forgot about May the 4th. When we realized it, we audibled to a model that fits. In combination with Mother's Day, we picked a Asanis, Mercury Flyer, as the model for this month.
Sign ups start today. Entry is $2 + the price of the model ($4.99). Models are due on June 2nd
Getting in on this competition is super easy. Just stop by the store, pick up your figure, and pay $2 to sign up. Then you paint up your figure however you wish and bring the finished figure back to the store by June 2nd. Judging will take place from June 2nd to 5th. Figures can be picked up from the store after June 4th.
Pictures of all submitted models will be posted to our Facebook Page on June 3rd.
Michael & Aaron will be the final arbiters!
1) Can I purchase multiple figures for testing?
Absolutely you can. However, you can only submit a single figure
2) Is modification of the figures allowed?
Absolutely. These are your figures, go wild if you wish, but don't get so elaborate that you cannot finish the figure in time. Only the figure will be judged.
3) Are there prizes?
Yes there are. 100% of the entry fee and a portion of the model price will be split up among the finalists, as decided by Michael and Aaron. Generally we split the pool evenly among the top 3rd of the models submitted.
4) I want to show off my figure early, where can I post pictures
Join us over on our Discord Channel and post pictures in the Monthly Painting Competition.
5) Can I modify the figure or add elements to it?
Let's take a page from Bob Ross, "It's your model, you're the creator." Base it, modify it, customize it however you wish. You do not have to customize the model and not modifying it will not disqualify your figure from top standings.
6) Will there be more of these?
That is the plan. We may skip months occasionally, but plan to have painting competitions frequently.
7) I am not good at painting, should I participate?
Painting is a hobby and an acquired skill. The more you paint, the better you will become. If you would like constructive feedback on your figure, please just ask. We would be happy to assist you!
8) I want help pulling off an effect or technique. How can I get tips?
Join us on our Discord Channel and we would be happy to help.
9) A Dinosaur? For Easter?
We are happy you asked, and didn't jump to conclusions about our model selection. We had to set the scales for judging this month and picked a hopping good figure for painting. Also, Dinosaurs laid eggs.
