  1. Best Story: We’re transported! Your pinup or diorama doesn’t just catch the eye, it grabs our imagination with a narrative told through paints, props and scenery!
  2. Best Skin: Look at that natural glow! Your pinup is the embodiment of liveliness, they look so real we swear they could just stroll right off their base!
  3. Best Overall: All we can say is, wow! Perfection is an understatement for your work!

3rd Place in each category - You will receive $50 in store credit, to be spent on anything of your choosing in the Kingdom Death webstore!

2nd Place in each category - You will receive $100 in store credit. In addition, you will be able to select any model of your choice from Pinups of Death Series I-V. Team Death will commit to prepping and queuing a painter’s scale print run of the model! Of course, you will receive the first painter’s scale of that model for free.

1st Place in each category - You will receive $100 dollars in store credit and your choice of a model from Pinups of Death for a painter’s scale print run. Finally, you may choose another model from Pinups of Death (or the same one as your painter’s scale choice). Team Death will create a one of a kind, 1/8th scale print of your chosen model to send to you!
