Today September 16,2011 I am announcing my First Ever Sculpting competition to to celebrate my getting my first job ever as a professional sculptor by being hired 20 years ago by Ral Partha to come work for them..

So I decided to run a sculpting competition to look for new (or old) talent that could eventually work for me (sounds cool huh!)

So Here Are The Details

Im running a contest to sculpt bases.. pretty simple..sculpt a base, send me photos and Ill vote and choose a winner or even winners to continue to do work for me..
