Adepticon 2017

Another Adepticon in the books and it just keeps getting better every year. The Crystal Brush was top notch as well, so much inspiring work and it was clear to see the entirety of the entrants have been progressing at their craft. I was happy to be able to place among so many quality entries. Archaon brought me a sliver in the Large Monster/Vehicle category but he was a commission I picked up to fill the category. My real pride and joy was the unit of Orcs "The Jungle Boyz" which was painted as a personal project. I feel like I hit a personal best with them. After seeing the amazing work on display though, I have to do better than personal best and keep pushing myself.

I went into a bit of a hobby frenzy after returning from the con but I'll post more on that later, feeling very inspired.

My usual post Adepticon blog involves about 30 pictures of tables but having done that in the past I'm a little tired of it. I did manage to preserve just a few fuzzy memories.

My first time hanging in the painters lounge where I got to meet new people and contine  my bromance with Matt Dipietro.

Or the happy go lucky folks from Wreck age..Yet another bromance with another dude named Matt.

Adam, Atom, the cranium, sometimes when you're dumb, it's good to know smart people. This guy has been such a big help to me.

The saga hall! Had some buddies in there, these are their drinking weapons.

Slayer sword winner Jeff Bowden absolutely nailing victim of changes on Karaoke!

The dedicated work of Brendan at GMM studios. The second thing he said to me when I went for a hello was "I'm a hermit" ha, those results don't lie, the guy is dedicated to his craft.

There are a lot more moments I didn't capture but will always remember. This the around I wanted to take less pictures and be face to face with it all. I'm going to get to work now but I'll leave with a preview of a little fun project I made yesterday. My goal is to add more atmosphere and heavy metal attitude to my work. So here is the beginning of a piece I'm calling Deathcrush, fans of Mayhem will get the reference. It won't be a master piece but the goal is to have fun.
