80's retro style hand drawn dungeon sections. The is a sample pack containing 2D five foot wide passageways with "3D effect"walls, rooms, objects, a couple of stand-up doors and so on. (In fact it's not as well finished as the actual Basic Pack is, but it gives you an idea of the type of look I'm aiming for).
If you don't like DriveThruRPG - you can download it from my Deviant Art page: fav.me/d2q6ljo
All this photos are of sections cut from the free sample pack. (see post above for link) It was also a sort of work-in-progress art pack - I've since sharpened up many of the sections, so that they look and fit together better.

Thanks and good luck with that. Remember that the sample set was a bit of a prototype in places - a little rough around the edges - also you're limited to 5ft wide corridors, but this set can be lots of fun for a small dungeon crawl.
I can see I'm going to have to do some photos with lots of the minis from this forum. I love line-art as a style, and many of the figures here remind me of the illustrations in Lone Wolf and the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks etc. Again, I think I projecting my nostalgia on the work of others.

All these classic style tiles make me want to design a series of classic style basic figures with flat coloring and thick lines to match. I know I have a few of the really old miniatures catalogs with some really great figure art ,nice and cheesy looking figure designs from the 80's and early 90's. I have a bunch of Erol Otus art as well ,I loved is style, especially the adventurers and monsters. JIM

Go for it! ;D I'm a big fan of Joe Dever and Gary Chalk who did a lot of designs for Games Workshop, as well as Lone Wolf, and 1st ed Talisman. I think that they was a lot of caricatures and exaggeration at GW in that period.
Cork blades? Corks as pillars is a great idea as well.
The story is that Yon (another forum user) is building a quest for the annual RL meeting. He asked for a column trap (which begins rotating with extending blades). I saw once columns made of corks in the Heroscape forum (there's a whole lot of great terrain builders, there), and so i told about it. Then both me and Leobester started building it. This is my version:
The blades are made by "rolling" paper.. i guess that a paper version could have some use. Sorry for the OT
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?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
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...
