The Goron. Confrontation.

    Here are the results of The RAB4 competition. What I can say - it was the most interesting and strong-competition on-line contest which I've ever seen. The list of participants is impressive - so many russian and foreign famous artist so well-known in our miniature world. In the result we have a possibility to see a lot of new interesting projects, and the most of it are the real "story". I warmly congratulate the winners - at first, to Kirill Kanaev, who is the member of our Serpentarium, for his  many-hands-zombie-budda. The second and the third places went to Karol Rudyk and Lynx. This trio is excellent!
    As for me I contributed to the competition, creating a history Gorgon (Rakham). This project was very difficult this time. May be it is the fault of the press of the expected high level competition. The idea of the temple has not been finalized  because of lack of my creative resources. 
   In addition, the judges are absolutely right pointing my main coloristic mistake - the use of contrasting colors without their "connection" with each other. I know this rule but didn't use it on The gorgon, don't know why. Fascinated by contrast, forgetting about integrity. 
     But, I hope that someone listing the gallery will like the image I created.

 The miniature is done on the game base so it can be separated from the display base.

Tomb king with shield

I've done this King in last mounth but didn't published it because it was my small insurance for  The Russian Alternative Online Battle 4.  But I had time to finish my main project for contest, so here is the King:

Savage Orc boss

Another one orc for this mounth. I like his dymamic pose and the quality of GW plastic kit. The only thing is - why they did toes of the right foot separately on the base?! Questionable decision.

Military-historical exhibition in TM-club store in Moscow

There was the annual exhibition of the military-historical modelism from 3 February to 3 March 2013 in  TM-club store in Moscow. It had a military-historical orientation like Live eDISHion 2012. But there was one Fantasy category in which I took part with my five works.
  By a strange unknown reason the photography of this exhibition was strictly forbidden (and angry vendors relentlessly followed for this), but someone did it anyway (Russia!). So we can find some pics here.

  My result of this exhibition was gold in Fantasy single with Bone Singer and gold in Fantasy vignette (it was an unexpected new category) with Ork Kaptin Badrukk. One more gold went to Marina (Ringil) fot her Crusader in historical single 54mm.
   And now we are a happy owner of beautiful pieces of paper with a certain amount of waste in their store!

The Spring Angel 2013 is coming!!!

   At last Russian Alternative announced the highly anticipated event - the miniature painting contest "The Spring Angel 2013"! The last year showed us that it was really the most extensive art event in Moscow. But in this year the organizers strive to surpass all expectations and make the event even better: in addition to judges from around the world (Ben Komets, Matt Cexwish, Jose Manuel Palomares Nunez) they announced the arrival of Massive Voodoo team, and we are waiting for an interesting dialogue, and of course, many prizes.
    So brush - in the hands and let's go!
