I am really enjoying the 'fluff'-creation of this setting. I'm considering doing a webcomic set in the retrospace universe and maybe even a Space Hulk style boarding party game (like Katana Schoolgirls in scope). Any ideas or interest?
I agree with Parduz.
A SpaceCrusade/StarQuest-like game is the best for me.
Sitting in the tub today I finally figured out how to make 3d deckplans for a hulk skulk I wanted to make for retrospace (or any other sci fi game). It's only been on my mind for 15 years and it seems like such an obvious approach. Sheesh...
I'm hoping to get this out in the next day or so. Life keeps rearing its ugly head. After this it's the minis for the winners of the papercut awards and then the booster expansion set for Katana Schoolgirls. Busy busy...
Great, great, great set. As always. I love this your "retro-space" series. And objectively there are all reasons,
Great artworks, great characterization, great poses. Many figures. so many options ... And a bonus set that is getting used too good the buyers ... Eleven other ( very great ) original figures, I think. Another complete set for free indeed.
So thank you very much David. You are one ( among a few ) real supporting producers for this kind of product. Thank you again.
I also really like your series' own personal management. Now, for your retro-space series, I think there are all the major factions, except for one.
I hope you haven't abandoned the idea of drawing this one.
Subsequently might be interesting expansions for already published series.
Thanks so much Rhannon. You are aways observant and kind. Yes, the Space Amazons should be next. I've been struggling with how to present them in a way that is consistent with the source material (early 20th century pulp sci fi) AND contemporary (not sexist). I think I have a good sense of what I am going for and should have something in the new year. I'm also interested in expanding a few alien types such as the ocopoids and the small headed snail guys in the recent set. There have also been calls for a more hard sci fi line which I will admit I am intrigued to attempt. Ultimately I want to make Retrospace into a game or at least a supplement for an existing game. I think this era of sci fi is full of wonder and fun and I don't want to give it up quite yet. The original Star Wars films had the same 'feel' to me as did Original Star Trek when you come right down to it. Next up though, I have some contest winner minis to draw.

I'd love to see something insect like,maybe a more bipedal version of the Vrusk from star fronties. I bet your dynamic style would look great with something that has multiple spindly arms and legs. I kinda like those slug guys though.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

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?
