The readers of TMP have voted, and this time bounide has been eliminated from the contest. One of the privileges of being "voted out" is the chance to make an exit speech. I also invited him to predict who the contest winner will be...and who will be the next one voted-out!

Here is what bounide writes:

OK, it's time to say good bye ;)

First, I'd like to thank Igor, the guy who made me discover this amazing website and the existence of this contest. Naturally, I don't forget I-Kore and Bill Armintrout: it's an honour for me to add some pages to your Workbench. :)

I had never painted Void or Celtos miniatures before, and the first three rounds offered some really difficult challenges (at least, for me!). As usual when I paint, my main problem (if we except NMM) is to find colours which go well together: this was a complete failure with the Druidess (black skin and blue hair: it worked better on my Mid-Nor Dwarves!) and, lacking inspiration for round 3, I reproduced the colour scheme I had used on an Orc musician.

Now, my regrets about my last round: Well, I did what I could. I was quite satisfied with my Vidar Wolf Helm, but when I saw my opponents' entries, I knew the end was near. Almost no shades on the fur, a simplistic kilt, etc., the kind of mistakes you can't allow yourself at this stage.

Bill invited me to predict the ultimate Last Painter Standing winner: I hope Rob Jedi will be one of the last Finalists. Up until now, he has written three tremendous tutorials, and I'm looking forward to reading his next reports (hopefully, he'll have to write nine of them!). My other favourites are Zaphod Beeblebrox (great painting guide about his Druidess and her great jade totem) and kezley (amazing wood painting on the Druidess totem). And, I hope the last Frenchman won't be eliminated too soon :p

It was a pleasure to participate and I've learned a lot from my opponents' articles. A thousand thanks to them!
