One of the big draws to Adepticon is the Crystal Brush Awards. Every year, painters from all over the world gather together in order to try and get the $10k grand prize. I elbowed my way through a crowd in order to get you some photos of some of the entries submitted so far.
The talent on display is breathtaking. The detail is astounding. I find the reactions are generally split, when someone sees the models. Either it's "this inspires me to paint" or "I'm just going to break all my brushes, because I'll never be that good." I hope you fall into the "inspired" side of things.
