To respond to Eddnic's Sept 27 post re: the Barghast it is the first figure I ever coloured. I hadn't discovered GIMP yet and I'd started playing around with 2.5d paper figs. I wanted to see what one would look like coloured so I used watercolours and felt tip pen. Since I scanned him in I have done some work, (like flipping to make the front) but the watercolour and felt tip are still plain to see.
I want to modify the base to have it fold together like the ratman I just posted over at the "beastman and mutant" thread
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
I'm no Eddnic, but I did a little rescale and recolour on a first draft of a barghast. I'd like to go back and improve it some more, but I thought I'd post it in case you need a werewolf before I finnish the upgrades.
Hi, Cowboyland. Thanks for this! How can I can get a pdf? I can definitely put this to good use. I´d love to see the upgraded version as well.

Thanks for the figures! It is mind-blowing how you do this stuff! I downloaded the lizardman awhile back, and will make him soon! The only thing I didn't like is how you made the legs completely from the side view. I'll try to make isometric legs in my next figures and see how that turns out.

I didn't have as much luck curling them to make tubes, though I did try that.
What I did was in the bulkier parts of the legs, arms and torsos, I would cut scrap paper a little narrower than the parts and sandwich that between the front and back halves of those parts. Just to thicken them up a bit.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
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?
