The "Victorian" theme round has been posted on the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge Bonus Theme Round blog. (Whew, try typing that 5 times fast.)
I can't say it enough,but there is really some fantastic work going on. If Alan (Dux Homunculorum) doesn't win for his Flashman Diorama, then there is no justice. NO JUSTICE I TELL YOU!
Although I did mine in one sitting, on the Saturday the entries were due, I feel my entry came out pretty well.The main thing I was disappointed in was the last layer on the "flesh" which obscured the other layers I'd built up. I'm most proud of overcoming the casting anomaly that let a big hole in the side of the miniatures face.
I hope you will all rush off and cast your votes for whom you feel is the most deserving.
I had hoped to also have another 6 miniatures submitted on the Friday, but I waited and waited and saw no sign of it coming up. Then I went back to the blog authoring page and saw that it had dated my draft 1/10/15.
Apparently I was too close to the "day" turnover that blogger has. I've noticed that my blog starts a new day at 5PM my time. Coincidentally that seems to have been about the time that I was drafting my post on Friday. I'm just going to have to do a better job of completing my stuff and getting it in ahead of my day for publication. It just pisses me off that I wasn't paying enough attention to catch it on Friday.
I'll get it together for this up coming week.
