Nit picking is fine, it will make future minis better.
I'm not certain what you mean by cleaner detail coloring (do you mean shading the smaller objects individually?)
I didn't really do any highlighting here, just started with a light base color and shaded. I'm trying to incorporate highlights into the minis I am working on now but I am not sure I am really getting the hang of it. . . Practice practice.
As for more minis, I am working on another set now, I'm coloring them and hope to have them ready this week.
The Seed Born Brawlers are the first unit in the first faction of a skirmish minis game I have been working on for a while now. Finding this website really offered me inspiration in being able to put together a playable version of the game in a print and play format. I hope to be able to create minis for all the units in the game and get some play testing going. But with the time I can devote to it now that is still a number of months away.
It's been said other places on this forum, but it is true, getting the proportions right can be difficult, and it is really noticeable when they're off. Funny though, when I was finished I thought the torso and arms were to big. I built two sets of them last night and they look pretty good on the table at an arms length away.
They're definitely a race of woodland folk. I have had plans to include treants and some other special plant themed units. But as of right now I am concentrating on getting infantry done for just two factions so I can try and get some people playing.

Okay, just saw these for the first time and thought that they might make an interesting Sci-Fi Alien race for my Star Trek group to encounter as well as an interesting fantasy race. They would also be great for some Pulp Sci-Fi alien action as well, perfect as the sentient and barbaric plant natives of some jungle world under the control of some galactic despot.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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?
