I have gone back to the space suits. Originally I had planned to do these, but I was side tracked. What you see here is about 75% done. They will be 2.5D on a flight stand and all will be ether zero-G or using a flight pack (NASA's MMU style). There will also be options for arming the jump packs.
A quick note about the picture: There will be three styles of the flight stand. That round thing is a NASA rescue ball not a beach ball! I had to model the life support pack separate, because the arms will fold forward with the flight pack. The legs will also be slightly bent.
Flight Packs now with weapons options.* Now you too can weaponize space. It's not just for the superpowers anymore. Weapon options all have 20% more vaporizing potential. Less messy orbiting debris to collide with your satellites. Free rescue ball with all downloads.
Thanks. I'm not sure there is a venue that you don't contribute to
I draw the line at paper dolls.
...although I have downloaded quite a few for drawing references. ...........that doesn't mean I make them or play dress up with them. ................or named them after the characters of Little Women.
...because I don't!

Very nice minis! The option to mount the mini on the thrusting jetpack is a great idea. I'm wondering if a ping-pong ball would fit the role of a rescue ball. Maybe printing the details on label paper to glue on it.

I think lables are going to wrinkle if you try to stick them to a ping pong ball. If I needed one of these I'd whip up an icosohedron (or whatever a twenty sider is called). 30 years ago thats what my friends and I did for dice! And we liked it!
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
You have to realize, on old posts, especially, that there will be gaps. Many of the artists hosted their images and files on other sites. Photobucket is a huge issue since they changed their hosting policy, and that is the one Tommygun used. We can't hack Photobucket. He had an acquaintance that gave him a free internet site, and it is gone. Wayback Machine is only of little help.
As far as Tommygun's models are concerned, before real life got in the way, squirmydad and I were talking about hosting my collection of Tommygun's models, since I was able to find the permission of Tom's to post his models in as many places as possible.
It's not the forum's fault that Tommygun's site, and Grendelkitty's site, etc. are down, or that third party image hosting sites no longer store the images. We try to fix what we can
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

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"

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?
