Like our first contest, The Chloe Sculpting Challenge, The Monster Rider Sculpting Challenge and its subject were dreamed up not by me and Jarrod, but by the members of this forum. Grassroots style.
Jarrod and I want to welcome as guest judge for this contest, the inimitable Simon Lee AKA Spiderzero! As you all know, Simon Lee is one of the hottest sculptors of resin kits in the world right now. His work has greatly influenced so many sculptors, including me and Jarrod, in these last couple of years. Me, Jarrod, and Simon will be evaluating the sculpts and picking the winners. We're really excited!
Here are few guidelines. These are not set in absolute stone...if tweaking needs to be done, we'll tweak.
1. Subject: Monster Rider. Monster Rider was voted the subject of the Challenge by the Forum Members. Any man, woman, or beast riding on top of any Monster. 'Nuff said.
2. Pieces should be submitted for judging on November 14, two months from today. Might seem like a long time, but forum members have real lives, day jobs, etc. Pieces will probably be submitted by photo on an Official Contest Entry Thread which we'll start on that day. You can feel free to show us progress and keep us updated on what you are doing or you can go the other direction and keep it secret like a mad scientist, wait, and reveal your piece on that day.
3. We need to see the pieces unpainted. We'd love to see them painted after the fact, but for the judging, they should be unpainted. Size and scale are your call.
Grand Prize Komodo King Resin Kit, Chloe Painted Statue, Simon Lee's Ol' Scratch Bust Resin Kit, and Simon Lee's Flying Guillotine Resin Kit! That's over $600 retail. We'll have 2nd place, 3rd place, and some Honorable Mention prizes as well and we'll announce those down the line.
Also, please feel free to hit us up with any and all questions right here on this thread. We're easy going guys and not much for a whole list of rules and regulations.
You guys know what do to: sculpt something badass and show it to us! Now get started already!
