WINNERS RESIN BEAST 2020 INSTAGRAM EDITION
Swirling That Paint Like A Fine Wine
Judging by Creature Caster and Vincent Venturella
“This was a wonderful piece, truly fantastic use of desaturated colours and detail. Nothing was overlooked or overdone, everything was perfectly in it’s place. The minor Orange OSL to draw the eye to the otherwise potentially flat face, the lower halo of orange/yellow pop around the bottom of the model and of course the wonderful work with the cabinet of nasty goods on the back. Easy choice for my top pick.”

Making Simon Nod Approvingly
Judging by Creature Caster’s own Simon Sung
“The free hand detailing on the shield was twisted and kept to the baroque nature of the King.
There are many elements in this model and they were executed with great skill and artistry. The wrap of the glaive was one of my favourite elements. It felt softer than the other elements and it showed that the artist had this in mind while bringing it to life.
A lot of care went into the shading and lighting of the model and I especially like the way you did the reflections of the metals.
The hightlights are nicely applied and carefully blended in (especially the face and hands). I like seeing the splashes of magenta and cyan adding more coldness.
Outstanding work! I am nodding with approval.”

Climbing the Spikey Resin Ladder
Judging by Creature Caster
“This category is for someone who has been painting for 2 or less years but, looking at that blend on the weapon, you would not be able to tell this was done by someone who has minimal painting experience.”

Have fun with any Creature Caster model that gets your paint-spiration flowing, whether you already own it or want to add it to your collection.
No. Big or small, we want to see them all. Just make sure that our model is the focus of the piece (as this is a Creature Caster painting competition).
Nope! The beauty of online contests is that anyone from around the world can join.
