Hi I have no idea if this is inappropriate to post like this or not. If so I apologize!
I was hoping I might be able to make a small request or obtain a commissioned set of minis from you.
My 7 yr old daughter and her girlfriends are going to be starting their first D&D game soon and I wanted to get my hands on a variety of female minis for them. No shops near me sell individual minis and I have no intention of buying the mini sets WOTC sells since they are so poorly set up for what I need. I finally settled on the idea of buying individual Reaper minis for the girls when I came across your work while browsing this forum. I have asked one other person as well. (Drywthharper)
Honestly though, now that I have seen your style - what can be better for an all girl 1st grader adventuring party? I am leaving my request open with him as well tho since I don't know if either of you will accept.

If you like this style of figure, head on over to oversoul-games.com/ and take a look at Dungeon Plungin in the downloads section.
The game itself would be ideal for the kids and the figures are all of a cartoony style. There are several girly type characters among the downloads. It's also worth looking on the fan art section of the community pages, there are several artists who have done figures in a dungeon plungin style including our very own Onemonk (Jim's are uncoloured so the girls could colour their own!!)
Also of possible interest are the pygmys, and hare and tortoise wars figures.
Basically I think Oversoul would be the place I'd go for figures for my (currently 5) daughter when she wanted to dip her finger into role playing!!
Their are some other fan made sets floating around but I can't put my finger on the links at the moment, I'll amend this mail when I can.
lex, if i can, i will tell you to try to avoid minis. I master D&D party with my two sons: the first was when they has 6 & 8 years (geez...4 years ago!) and i started a "reduced" 3.5 mini campaign (using the D&D Basic box for the first 2 levels, then full rules and charachter sheets). That box have standard D&D minis, but they hated them after the first completed dungeon: the LOTR trilogy was fresh in theyr mind, and they asked me "to let them imagine the things that happens", so no maps and no minis. What a satisfaction
We still use the paper minis for dungeon crawling games, but GDR is "miniature less" for my kids.
oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

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
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
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

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...
