Painted Miniatures By Jarrett Lee
Just a small update to show a couple of Confrontation minis I did. I'm working on two forces: Behemoth and Goblins - although, the odds of completing both (300 points each) are lowish, based on my past history I can't seem to duplicate the Rackham style of multi-hued faces (various colors of blue, pink etc). Also, my NMM is hella-rusty here. I'm trying the "add little scratches" thing and it totally fails on my Goblin's sword
If anyone has links to a gallery from GD Canada 06 I'd love to see pictures. I've seen the Slayer winner by Jeremie on CMON. It's technically astonishing, but I don't love it for a GD entry. Ditto with Victor's Demon Prince. I guess I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to the Demons - I prefer less scratch-building and for entries to fit the setting/flavor of the game systems a bit more closely. I really dislike the religious undertones of Victor's entry even though on the whole it's an utter masterpiece. Just not my cup of tea.
That, of course, is a personal point of view which I don't expect others to share Also, it's starting to seem like you have to be a brilliant 2D artist to compete - no matter how great you are at painting miniatures, you will get your ass kicked if you can't do a spectacular 2D painting on a banner, mural setting, shield etc.
I find it a bit of a bummer. Mostly cuz I suck at 2D and freehanding LOL
