Actually, WaffleM, She does have short hair. When I was doing my research for these I found out that all Egyptians had very short/no hair, male and female. It was their answer to pest control.
So that is a wig.
Glad these Egyptians will find some use, Sir Rob. I liked putting this set together. The only thing I became tired of is all the bandages. Maybe the next set in this line will not have as many mummies.
I think the priestess would look more authentic in a form fitting garment. I can't think of any archaeaological images with a garment like this one. I am really enjoying this range, and wish I could do half as well!
Have fun! Steve

Steve, it is a bit too late to change, now. Sorry about that. I should probably get in the mode of posting sketches as I do them so you can point stuff like that out earlier.
No harm, no foul, Jabbro. It would have been nice if I had posted my reflections sooner, too! I meant what I said when I indicated I would be very grateful if I could do this stuff half as well as you do!
Steve, I've seen your work. It is good. You have a nice painterly style. The only thing you lack is the digital know how. To be honest, I like the old school feel of your artwork. You would be hard pressed to get that digitally.
Any input you can provide is appreciated. You've worked with miniatures a lot longer than I have.
Oh wow! That must be a hard work. But totaly worth the time which you spent with it. *nod* Looks really amazing! Really awesome set. I love the characters, the coloring, the poses, your designs. Really nice!
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...
