Hmm..I have the perfect model for this, but it isn't finished, and I don't have it with me so I can't complete it..
On the other hand, I haven't entered a contest for far too long, so I'm going to enter it anyway.

What is considered "advanced" techniques? It is limited to the NMM or Lightsourcing that you mention above, or could any of the below also be included:

Airbrushing
Super-detailing (more of a modeling than painting technique)
Weathering
Freehand (banners, logos, etc)
Lighting (again, more of a modeling technique than painting, but getting lights into things isn't easy)

Weathering and freehand painting are certainly in; I'm not sure what super-detailing refers to, so I'd have to see.

I'll be honest that I've really never understood what airbrushing entails, so again I'd have to see the entry and look at what it entails.

Lighting, while undoubtedly very advanced, is as you say a modeling technique rather than a painting one, so that's out, unfortunately.

Well, basic airbrushing is all about spraying colour - usually for basecoats.

But, there are some more advanced techniques, such as masking and blending that yield some interesting results.

Masking:


Blending:


Obviously, you can get into further effects, where you mix the two as well.


Superdetailing is the addition of extra detail to model kits. The new ForgeWorld Masterclass painting book goes into it a little bit. Like I said above, it's really a modeling technique, so if lighting is out, I'd just as well assume that it doesn't count either.

Thanks for the info.

We'd probably have to judge on a per-entry basis, but I'm inclined to say that they fit the bill. It's a very subjective definition, after all.
