    Well hello there and welcome to Lustria's first sculpting and converting contest.

    I've gained approval to run this from Thereddevil and the so very helpful suggestions.

    THE POLL IS NOW OPEN!
    You can view and vote on the poll now, link provided here: http://www.lustria-online.com/threads/sculpting-competition-poll-now-open.17194/

    In a nut shell:
    The purpose here is to challenge members to take part in trying their hands at sculpting and converting (not just simple kitbashing...there needs to be green stuff, or something similar so we can see you've actually sculpted something).

    Rules:
    • You submit photos of ONLY one model (your choosing) you've converted or sculpted. You can however send multiple photos of the same piece, it all counts.
    • Submissions should be sent in a PM TO ME, DO NOT UPLOADED PUBLICLY! Make sure you use the title "My contest entry"
    • Kitbashes will be accepted IF there is green stuff, or some other putty clearly visible and being used to create textures/surfaces/accessories, etc.
      - Simple cut and shuts of different parts will NOT be accepted.
    • Your submission can have as little or as much paint on it as you like, however I would prefer it if I can see a photo BEFORE you apply paint.
    • There will be prizes....(these might change, but for the moment are as follows at the bottom).
    PRIZES:
    1. First prize is a one off sculpt...I will post sneak photos of it in a week or so, but for the moment I will say it's nothing you've seen me do before, no photos of it are anywhere on the internet.
    2. Second prize is a cast of Oxayotl (the one you see sitting in my avatar), I can even show you a photo of the resin cast that is currently sitting on my desk.
    3. Third prize will be a heavily converted saurus or skink character, done by me, you get to pick with model and what you'd like done too it.
    What you need to do/FAQ:
    • Start by taking photos of any work you've done NOW, or begin work, you have plenty of time for the moment as I've not come up with a end date yet, this is to make sure everyone has enough time if other commitments might make this difficult.
    • Any questions can be fired in below this post, but please keep any photos of works you want to enter hidden from everyone (except via PM to myself).
    • I AM more than happy to have anyone offer to help judge should they wish.
    • Obviously, I won't be taking part.... ;P

    I dont take it that 3D goes for greenstuff? :D
    I went there as my physical sculpt attempts never went too well.

    Nice initiative Rikard! looking forward to see what people are putting out (and what the 1st Prize is ;) )

    Hmm...I COULD allow 3D, I certainly don't see why not, BUT the prospect of Woogity's kroxigors could put everyone off. :p

    After seeing your terrain entry, you are definitely not in the noob division. You have to compete against the big boys!

    Re-read my first post, you'll see that I'm not taking part, some might consider it unfair if the organizer enters. :p

    Still unsure on the 3D front, saying no to computer based sculpture smacks of discrimination, I'd really like to get more thoughts and feelings on this generally, although it goes without saying to be polite (I don't want a re-run of the carpe noctum conversion/sculpt contest I took part in...).

    Even if @woogity and @Phatmotha-phucka took part, who cares? That doesn't automatically mean they'll auto snag first and second place and even if they did, I would have thought/hoped the 3rd place prize is still a tempting one.

    You should enter. If the winner is chosen by forum voting then it is completely fair! Besides, any chance to see more of your super skilled work is a good thing!
    All 3 prizes are fantastic. I was just seeing if anyone was brave or skilled enough to challenge the big boys!

    Well I'm planning a conversion with some green stuff bits I will hopefully be able to make!

    But I have loads of Chaos and DE to paint as well!

    If you got to be a traitor, those are some awesome armies to do it with.


    @Rikard I know you haven't decided on an exact date for the contest entry submissions, but do you have a rough idea in mind?

    I'd be in the super noob division. I got a neglible chance of beating our best sculptors, but I might as well enter because I am working on various conversion projects though. Dwarven Great Swords for my Empire army and Quatlixa for my undead army.

    Not exactly lots of conversions. Dwarf with a kitbashed feathered hat and big sword, then some sculpting to make poofy Empire clothes. Quatlixa are kitbashed from three models. Skink bodies, Saurus heads, Reaper arms, followed by sculpted spikes and tail deformities.

    In fact I have some now, but they are beta models. I can do better.

    I'll get in on this, but I have some questions on the eligibility of my potential entries.

    1. Does it have to be a recent sculpt? (My last one was finished around Febuary).
    2. Does it have to be 100% putty? (I have some nice sculpts that are about 90%, I used some bits for arms).
    3. Does it have to be a Lizardmen sculpt? (I'm very proud of my sculpted Daemons, I'd like to submit one for an entry).

    I've entered and done well in a lot of painting competitions, but never a sculpting one. It's funny, I have much more experience sculpting than painting. Needless to say this has me excited!

    I need to have a good think/exploration on this one, might well be tempted to have a separate category for 3D work.
    People could/would be allowed to enter both 3D AND regular putties.

    I'd be happy to allow none Lizards, but non lizard work might affect voting from forum goers.

    1. No, I'd prefer it, but aware of how busy life is/can be for people.
    2. No, conversions are welcome.
    3. No, might affect other peoples' voting preferences (again, same thing happened with the converting/sculpting contest I took part in on Carpe Noctem).
