Anne's 2nd Annual Epic Painting Challenge

Yes, folks it's time for my Annual Epic Painting Challenge. Last year I competed against the Rascal Rousell in a Monumental Mouse Mage Duel.  This year my victim/opponent is our own Marzio from Fog's Soldiers Blog . And this year's we will be pitting a Buxom Blonde Babe against a Brunette Amazon.

Why Blonde vs. Brunette you ask? Well let me tell you....


This is how it all started. I'm always hanging out in the Loony Bin on TMP where SMC posts his Blonde Jokes. And one day in order to retaliate/have some fun, I posted some Brunette jokes. Well, Marzio saw this and has been ribbing me about it since. Last week things came to a head when he threatened to send some Brunette Amazons to Ireland to conquer the Irish Blondes.

That's when I threw down the gauntlet. I challenged Marzio to pit a Brunette Amazon against a Buxom Blonde and let you guys vote to settle the argument. Is it possible for a Brunette to have more sex appeal than a Blonde?  Jaysus, I know it's not, but we'll let Marzio give it a try.

This event won't take place until next month as I'm busy painting up a competition piece and Marzio is busy painting up a Brunette Princess (poor thing will never catch a Handsome Prince). We'll let you know when we settle on a date and between now and then I'll keep the kettle boiling by periodically posting Brunette jokes.

Well folks it's Monday and I may be a little late out of the gate this morning as I've an appointment. But I'll be in later to comment. That is if I don't accidentally lock myself out of the house, or lose my laptop, or forget I've even posted a blog today. Hey, I'm blonde, what do you expect?

    What's black and blue and brown and laying in a ditch?
    A brunette who's told too many blonde jokes.

    1. What do you call a handsome man on a date with a brunette?
      A hostage.

      This is going to be another fun one Fran!

    2. I'm not as good a painter as Marzio or Paul, but I do know what men like and I've picked out a Babe that appeals to those most basic of instincts. Beer and Boobs.

  3. This i'll be fun. I'm neutral on the subject between blonde & brunette, but red might tip the scales.. though none of them have anything on green. Oh for a green haired woman!

  4. Blondes? Brunettes? Pah! What you really want is a fiery redhead :)

    Good luck with your challenge Anne - may the best non-redhead win! :)

    1. I have to say a fiery redhead is really intriguing... ;-)

      Marzio.

    2. The Spawn said I should include a red-head in the Challenge. If you want to put in a red-head entry, I'd be all for it. We could have a three-way. Wait a minute,that sounds a wee bit naughty:)

      Delete
    3. Nope, nope, nope - my character painting is nowhere near the standard of you and Marzio so I'll stay out of it!

      And no, it doesn't sound a wee bit naughty - it sounds a lot naughty! :)

      Delete
    4. Darn it! I thought I could entice you with the thought of that 3-way:)

    1. No way Jay. If that's the case, I'm already beaten! Marzio is a commission painter. Oh bloody hell, what have I gotten myself into this time?

      Delete
  6. Natural blondes are Ok. Bottle Blondes are a bit too "try hard" for me. Classy brunettes are always good but a nice natural redhead is my poison of choice. Oh and CURLY for choice!

    I wish you luck in the challenge and would like to know will you both be painting the same figure or is the figure choice down to the individual? Whatever the outcome, have fun and I look forward to seeing the result.

    1. I love read hair and I wish I'd not gotten stuck with the blonde. My cousin Margie is a red head and she has curls.

      We pick our own figures. I already have mine as I went on a Babe buying spree not long ago.

      Delete
    2. I have never met a woman who actually likes thier hair. When you get to my age, most men are just happy to have some!

      Delete
    3. It's true, if it's curly we straighten it and if it's straight we perm it. The Hubby's hair fell out last year and I got used to him bald, but he's finally able to grow it back. We women don't care if a man is bald or has hair. We're easy to please:)

      Delete
  7. I like that challenge! Can't wait to see the figures.

  8. Good luck with this one. To be honest brunettes are actually my personal preference, or that delightful mix of blonde and brown some girls have.

    1. There are some gorgeous brunettes out there, but for the purposes of this contest, I can't admit that.

  9. "Hey, I'm blonde, what do you expect?" I expect you to win soldier, for all Blond-dom! No seriously, I'll be cheering for you Anne. The wife is blond too, has a university education and earns more then I do so Go Team Blond Go!

  13. Has it really been a year since the last challenge? This promises to best just as entertaining, but I fear Marzio might have his work cut out here - best of luck to you both.

    1. It has indeed. Of course blondes are the sexiest women, but you've seen those Amazon figures-most of them are topless. If he picks one of those I'm doomed.

  16. Good Luck Anne,
    A brunette, a redhead and a blonde walk down a beach when suddenly the brunette discovers a magic lamp. The brunette rubs the lamp and POOF! a magic genie appears. The genie tells the girls that he will grant them three wishes, so each girl will have a turn. The redhead goes first and tells the genie that she's always been really smart and she is sick of being teased, so she asks the genie to make her just semi-smart. Suddenly the redhead is turned into a brunette.
    Next, the brunette takes her turn. She tells the genie that she has always just been sort of smart and she wants to be really smart. Suddenly the brunette becomes a redhead.
    Finally, it's the blonde's turn. She thinks for a minute and then tells the genie that she's always been dumb and she's tired of being dumb. The blonde says that she wants to be really dumb. Suddenly, the blonde becomes a man!

    1. That's what The Spawn said. I may write a post and ask if someone would like to join in and paint up a red head. I'm all for it.

    2. A red head for me :-D Does the scale matter? I could always go and get me a 28mm female fig.

    3. No scale doesn't matter. Mine is 28mm. If you'd be willing to do it, I'd love it. It would be so much fun. Say you'll do it!

  24. I also want to see a redhead in this. I hope Paul actually does it!

    In the meanwhile, we both have significant others that are brunette, but we're good sports, so we'll leave you with a joke.

    What do brunettes miss most about a great party?
    The invitation.

    1. I hope he does too. It will be even more fun with three figures to vote on and three styles of painting to look at.

      That's a good one. I never get offended by blonde jokes because I can laugh at myself and well, let's face it, some of them are spot on.

  30. Sorry, Blondie, I'll take my current raven-haired lass over anyone else. Good luck on the competition, though. I imagine you can handle a mousy-brown gal, at least.

    1. Now Rich, you know I'm just kidding. The competition piece I'm working on is a raven-haired babe. She's the cutest babe I've done yet and she wouldn't have worked as a blonde. I'll be posting W.I.P. pics and soliciting critiques soon.

  35. Blonde, brunette, or ginger? I used to think brunettes because of my ancestry, but then I met my wife who is a strawberry blonde and besides my toe head son, she gifted me with three beautiful daughters. A dark haired girl in feminine form of myself, a strawberry blonde looking like my wife, and a willowy blonde born to run. Now I find myself preparing to smash any boy that would foolishly break their hearts!
    Looking forward to your work! I couldn't choose a pretty girl on hair alone as every woman has her own beauty and grace!;)

    1. The Hubby and I feel the same way about our daughter. God help the man who breaks her heart.

      Truly I agree with you on that last statement. And that's why I enjoy painting females so much. The curves and lines on those sculpts are just so gorgeous, They are may favorite thing to paint and hair colour doesn't matter one whit.

      Which means I shall lose as the other two painters are masters!

      Delete
  36. I also agree with mr. Bromley's words, but I believe that men are likely to be fascinated by the kind of women that are not so easy to find in their neighbourhoods. Like me, the portuguese women are mostly brunette and I wouldn't take notice of most of them, but I'll surely take a second look at any blond that crosses my way!

    Anyway, we can expect great fun from this event!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. A month from now?! Well fine. But you've got me curious and I wanna see what you both come up with!
