Dunno what makes you VERY happy then: i've seen T'shirt and "new age" posters much more worse than that! To me, it is great! A pain to cut, but great ;D Have you never tried to change the outline color on the "spell" and water shapes, to give a less "solid" feel?
I'm not so super critical of my work as the wording of my initial post might make it seem. I do think this is one of my best minis to date, but I tend to notice the little things that I didn't get right or that didn't look the way I imagined them instead of enjoying the overall effect.
Changing the boarder around the spell effects sounds like a good idea. Next time I am working on minis I may give that a try. I've been wanting to enhance the spell effects, but the boarder change never dawned on me.
I may try and combine some printable transparencies in a build to make the spells truly transparent, but I may be working with parts that are too small and fiddly to make that work out right.
I imagine (as long as I don't wind up being ridiculously busy or something) I'll get a good build done of this mini and enter it in the Papercut contest...which I think is a brilliant idea Nik, I hope there are lots of entries.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
