I was looking in the web and i didn´t see any kind of vegetation papercraft, because of this i start to design in my mind plants, trees, palms, brushes etc. And hoping that this will be my first product to publish in rpgnow (Though i don´t now yet how to publish them ). i´ll start with palms tress. Soon i will be posting some pics of this proyect.

hey, back in the MMiP days I won a "Fabulous New Guy" prize for 2.5d trees that had places in them for figs. My texturing was sub standard and the design was prosaic but I still think it was a good idea.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

World Works games currently have the best paper trees. I have a whole forest from the Hinterland set. Their Swamp Wood Village has one maybe two types of swamp tree.
Fat Dragon Games has a set almost identical to Hinterlands, but it uses pictures of flock for the trees, not as detailed in my opinion but some people seem to prefer that way of texturing. I've purchased both sets and as soon as I get around to making GSD's for the FDG set I will integrate them for more variety.
WWG Skull Cove has tall grass and palm trees.
There was another set of paper trees on RPG Now that I purchased years ago. They are okay, but I never ended up using them.
The great thing about paper trees, bushes, etc. is the more you have and the larger the variety, the more realistic it looks. ;D
Personally I would like to see Alien Vegetation. Large Horse Tails and other prehistoric plants, as well as the truly odd.
Thanks guys, is good to hear that you like it. I starting now with textures and when i finish it will post some photos, after that i will start with the second species of palm: Fenix palm, this is more robust that pindó palm. Thank again

Just an experiment.... needs much better texturing, but the basic idea works
I'll do some more work on the idea and see if I can improve my textures. Doing them this way could make an infinite number of combinations pretty quickly. It's just a simple three sided fold cut off flat at the bottom and glued onto a separate base. (I've been texturing my bases, makes the figs look great).
Hey guys. Cowboyleland your trees are great i like them, i have downloaded them some time ago, great work. José I am projecting another kind of trees too, but i want to finish first with some species of palms. Great work with your trees. Good idea to put some stones in the base it will give more stability. And finally squirmydad congratulations you reach the your post number 1000 ;D

I've started basing all of my paper models the same way I would a 3D sculpt. It adds a lot of stability and gives them some weight (my bases are magnetic card too). By the time you've got basing sand and a few rocks on the magnetic base, they are starting to have some substance. I've noticed the players in my group treat the models with a lot more respect this way too. As they aren't 'just paper', players are really starting to appreciate the art work now.
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?
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
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
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...
