Hi all ! This is my first try to desing minis. I don´t draw a long time ago. All the people in onemonk were an inspiration for me and make me remember when i was a child and i draw full pages with differents characters that i invented, each one with their own powers. It was a long time ago and i was happy manking it. I don´t know why i didn´t draw anymore, but when i saw you i´d say: These people are making the same that i´d make when i was a child and they are happy making it. And here i am drawing after all that time and begining learning to use some graphics programs. I hope you can help me with my draws and my programs (and my english too ). Thanks you for make me back to my child age. I haven`t a scanner because of this i´d take photos of my draws. I hope to buy a graphic tablet. And here are some draws that i make in the last days. (Before Argentina was eliminate for the world cup )
Mushroom elemental (mushroom <-- I don´t know if i write this ok)
Liana elemental (i don´t know if liana is ok. Liana is the plant where Tarzan was hanging)
Giant quirquincho (i don´t know how do you call this animal)

really great start.The Ents are something I have been searching for for a while and would be very useful to my D&D group.I just love the mushroom ellementals they are very original.Please keep up the good work.
Thanks. I glad you like my draws. Thanks José, now i know how to say quirquincho in english. I saw that you like the mushroom because of this i was experimenting in Corel 10 with them. I`m still not finding the tool to outline the graphics with a wider line if anybody knows it please help me.
Hi everyone, i´m so happy and glad to present my first Mini made in Tucumán, Argentina. Is the moss elemental. I will still working on the other minis and when i finish them i´ll post all them toghether. Here are some photos.
Thanks to everyone. I am honored of that so good artists like you, like my work. All the people here in onemonk were my inspiration to start doing it. The setup is a green towel that my wife gave me to take photos like this (look like grass And here is the final moss elemental. I save it in PNG format i hope it´ll be good. May be in the next mini i must work with a wider line in the interior of the pic.
Now i´m in winter`s vacation and i´ll work in other minis. Thanks again.
Was the thin white outline intentional? I think it would look better without it.
That thin white outline wasn`t intentional, it apears there i don`t know how. Sometimes graphics programs look like they make what they want . I´ll try to eliminate it in the next mini. I glad you like it enpeze. I hope you can use it in DnD.
And here is other mini, this is the Paul octopus (el pulpo Paul in spanish). He is a octopus that live in a Germany aquarium and predicted the results of the games of the World Cup, he is the personage of the moment and i make my honoring him here.
And here with the Spain Flag, the new World Champion
It´s just a extra mini out of the set of the forest´s creatures. I hope you like it
Here there is a pic of the first Mushroom elementals that i´m doing in photoshop, i want to design 10 to put them in a tray like an army. I know that they don´t look so powerfull but they can throw poisonous spores and hit with their rods. May be one is not very dangerous but when they are in a group ...
Hi all, i´m here again. I was a little busy with my work and i didn`t work in my mushrooms elemental. But now they are coming to life one by one, at last i finish them and i will put all together in a pdf to publish them here. Here is a photo of some of them. I use Mc donald´s happy meal box to build my minis (that is recycle . I have a question if somebody can ask: All around the world Mc donalds happy meal box is the same at the same time? This in the photo is from Shrek forever and after that was in the last month in Argentina. Was This in other country too?? Ah! Here is the photo of the mushroom elementals:

I don't know about the happy meals, but I am seeing a great number of mushrooms popping up where I live, must be the almost constant rain we received this summer. I took a bunch of pics, I'll post a link to my gallery of backyard fungus soon.

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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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"
Feb 26, 2019 20:44:53 GMT -9
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?
