Last night I was able to sit down and ink up two of the characters for Buck's request. I have a new light board. Using that and taking into account the advise I have received, I think I have managed to improve my inking quite a bit. I needed no editing after scanning and very little cleanup.
The other one I have inked is the serving wench. I'll get to her later. Maybe tonight I'll get to design and ink two more.

This model worked great tonight as a paper stand in for WHQ's imperial noble. We do have the original metal mini, but since we've been using paper for monsters, I have been looking for appropiate or semi appropiate paper minis and this one fill the bill quite nicely.

I am glad that everyone has enjoined the noble. I think I am getting the hang of the new style. Unfortunately I had to prepare for a presentation this Friday so I had very little spare time today, but I did manage to finish the wench. Don't worry Abbadon, I think she is the type you are looking for.
I have not really tried other genres. If I finish these before it closes, I'll have to do something horde themed. I was thinking Sci-Fi.
Cool. Now that I am doing things on a different scale, I can capture a bit more personality and not just a static face. This helps a lot.
Buck, here is the third main character. I have one extra inked, and I'll start on him next. Tonight I'll try and design the other two NPCs, but I cannot guarantee that I'll have all three done by Friday.
This one is a bit stooped over, so he is shorter. I kindda modeled him after a Thieves World character of the same occupation.
Once again, Jabbro, I don' t know how to thank you! These figures all look awesome! I'll be printing and cutting out tonight along with the last of my tavern as well. (I'm using Fat Dragon's Dragonshire Interiors to make the tavern where the big fight is gonna take place!)
I love the detail on the bartender - especially the dagger in the back of his boot!
Well Jabbro, you'll be happy to know that your mini's were a huge success! The tavern fight ended up being a lot of fun! The players moved quickly to defend the bartender (Gotta keep the drinks coming...) and were extremely dismayed at the death of the serving wench! More than a couple of the commoners met an untimely death as well.
Thank you again for all the time you put into the figures for this. Hopefully a lot of the other people on the board will get some use out of them as well! Here are a few photos from the session last night. Enojy!
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
