The Neapolitan Challenge and Commission Work

Yes folks, the bugs have  been ironed out and we now have a solid date for the Neapolitan Painting Challenge aka Blonde vs Brunette vs Redhead.


This Epic Painting Challenge of Enormous Proportions will take place on October 7th. Paul, Marzio and myself will be sure to post reminders between now and then as many painters and gamers are currently taking blogger breaks.

As I am known to be as rotten as the day is long a fair person, here are some pics of some equally gorgeous women.





At the moment my painting table is terribly crowded. I am working on a small commission project along with completing a figure that I have spent weeks working on for a friend (a non-gamer), so posting has been impossible recently.

I have several people to write thank you posts for and barring any unforeseen circumstances will do that this weekend.

  1. You're even taking commissions now? That's awesome. It's a sign you've really made it. Good luck with the competition Anne. I can't quite remember who won the last one though unfortunately.

    1. Indeed she is and I bought her from one of my favourite babe sculptors, Patrick Kieth. She was a bit pricey, but worth it!

  5. Looking forward to the great competition. I haven't touched a brush for the last couple of weeks; this job thing is terribly over rated.

  7. I'm glad to hear this competition is still going to happen! I'm looking forward to it, uh, purely so I can judge the quality of the painting and the intricacy of the details, and not just to ogle hot women of various hair colors. Yeah, that.

    1. We had to wait for Marzio's figure to be shipped. Took almost 2 months. I've seen the others figs, they're really sexy!

  8. And what about gorgeous women with grey/silver hair, huh? HUH?

    1. I feel the same way about female figures. They are my favourite thing to paint and the figure I'm painting for my friend is a brunette. She's stunning!

  10. I'm so happy to be part of your journey, Anne. I can truly say with a smile in my heart that it's been awesome to watch you go from asking for tips to painting on commission. You, my dear friend, ROCK!!! Can't wait to watch the competition unfold.

    1. It seems like I've been painting for years now and I still get frustrated that I'm not improving rapidly enough. There is a point I want to get to and then I'll be satisfied.

      The smack talk alone should be worth the trip!

    1. I've gotten approval from the client to finish based on the first test picture. These are tiny little gnomes and I'm not used to working in that scale so I was a bit concerned. I'll post a pic of the test figure soon.
