Monster March 4 - Final


We have finally arrived to the end of March and because of that, Monster March 4 challenge is officially over! 

I am really happy I could host it 4th year in a row and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants for joining the painting challenge this year!

There were some amazing ideas, projects and models that you pledged this year. I am always amazed by the creativity people show, both in their ideas for models, and execution of their chosen projects. It is a privilege to host a painting challenge like this!

I am also very glad that people kept coming during the entire month! That was the idea from the beginning, whenever you start is less important than the fact that you do! 

In the final post about this year painting challenge I am going to list all the participants. Please, do not worry if you have not finished your project during this month. There is a lot going on in real life and the painting challenge aims to help you dealing with other issues by providing enjoyable distraction. I just hope all is good on your side!

First, the links to each post and update for the Monster March 4:

And now, all the participants of this year challenge!

Monster March 4 - Part 5


Welcome to another weekly update to the progress the participants of Monster March 4 painting challenge. It is already week 4 and we have only two more days left of the month. 

I am going to post a final update on 1st of April featuring all the participants. 

This time, however, it is going to be regular weekly update. Some of the participants have already finished their respective projects. Well done!

For others, the last week was the one when they managed to accomplish their goals. Congratulations!

What I found amazing in particular is that we still had people coming and asking to join the fun! At the same time, those who have already finished their projects, embarked on stretch goals and painted some more! 

It is truly amazing and I am really happy that people kept coming pretty much every week!

Let's see then what do we have this week!

Monster March 4 - Part 4


Time for another weekly update on the progress of Monster March 4 painting challenge! We have only one week left but some of the participants are either almost there or have already finished their projects!

I know it is quite a difficult time for many so I hope this painting challenge provides much needed distraction. Or simply the way to cope with the things that are often out of our control.

That is why I would like to thank all of you who are participating in this challenge, no mater if you posted any photos of your progress or not. I would like to encourage you to keep going. It helps me a lot to keep calmer and I believe it may be a good way to brave through whatever you may be going through at the moment.

If you had some break in painting that is ok too. There is never too late to come back or even start something new! The intention of the challenge is to encourage you to keep painting no matter what! :)

Let's see what the participants prepared in the last week!

Monster March 4 - Part 3


It is half of the month already meaning it's time for another update! The participants worked really hard to progress their respective projects. As you are going to see soon, they made some really stunning advancements and the effects are already awesome!

What is also fantastic is that we are still getting people joining the challenge! That's amazing because it is really about starting or resuming that great painting project of yours. As long as you do so, the goal is automatically achieved! 

Without further ado, let's see what are the updates this week!

Monster March 4 - Part 1


Welcome to Monster March 4 first post! It is with great pleasure that I would like to introduce you all the participants in this year painting challenge. There are some veterans joining the ranks again and there are some new painters too!

I can tell you that all participants chose some really great models. You will see by yourself soon but I just wanted to say that thanks to Monster March challenge I learned about models I didn't know anything about it. This is yet another benefit of participating in painting challenges. You get inspired by other people's choices, ideas and models.

Before I start introducing the participants, I would like to add that you can join the challenge at any time! Please let me know whenever you are ready!

Monster March 4 - Introduction


I can't believe it is almost March! Time flies, seemingly faster with every passing year. However, the good thing about March is that we are about to embark on yet another painting challenge, fourth year in a row!

What is Monster March? In short, it is a painting challenge where you choose one big model from your collection and paint it during entire month. It's the opportunity to paint that centre piece of your collection that perhaps was waiting a bit long for you to start working on it. Or maybe you have just got a great model and can't wait to paint it! Whatever the reason and whatever the model (although the bigger the better!), it is your opportunity to enjoy painting and sharing progress on weekly basis with other participants. 

To have a better idea what it may look like, here are the links to the Monster March challenges from previous years:
