Road to Crystal Brush: Origins 2014

Rate this Entry
Origins was this past weekend and with it the Road To Crystal Brush as well. For me, it was an exciting convention because I got to have my first go as a judge for a miniature painting contest, the Crystal Brush.

I have been spending the last several months studying under the amazing Jen Haley learning how to be a better painter and also what to look for in a competition piece. Not only is this a lot of fun, but I get to put my art degree and painting knowledge to the test with things like composition and color theory. This comes I handy when I sit down to make a competition piece as well.

Judging isn't an easy task, and I certainly felt the weight of what I had to do for the Crystal Brush. It's good to know I always have back-up, since I can bug Jen for some advice while judging. I had a lot of fun and it was an excellent learning experience as well as a way to make new friends!
