From the Fang where there are a lot more pictures than I have here.
The quality of the entrants I have seen in some of the pictures was truly breath taking. The Slayer Sword winner (pic below, on the right) is a phenomenal piece, which I would love to reach the quality of. Others such as the Space Marine Librarian vs Eldar Farseer (left) shows some wonderful imagination from the creator to make such an amazing duel.
Which brings me on to the cryptic challenge I left at the end of my completed Grotesques post. I am going to enter the UK Golden Demon in 2013. I like the idea of the challenge I face. There are certain areas I will definitely need to improve upon and I will be investigating each of these through a series of posts as I work my way toward the Games Day of 2013.
The first step I have taken is trying to find out some tips on preparation people suggest for the event and found some useful info over at Bestienmeister .
First step that is needed to be taken is a critical evaluation of my painting style, looking at what I can do well and what I am not so good at. From there, I get on with practicing, pulling together the techniques I need and then to begin sorting out entries in the categories I will look to enter.
It is a long term plan, I do not doubt it will take up a fair bit of time if I am going to make a decent attempt at it, but I am quite excited about giving it a go and pushing myself to try and have some models entered in to the competition.
