Just so you know I have not given up completely; here are some figs my son asked me to make for the players in the campaign he is running. I've glued them up but I have not cut them out yet, so no pictures I'm afraid.

Just test built the guy at the top with the crossbow. I think I will go back and add fingers (warforged only have three) and let them fold their "hands" around their weapons. P9190026 by cowboyleland, on Flickr.

I think there is room for more than one criticism Kil. The "super macro" picture really shows up my poor cutting. I'm going to break down and buy glasses soon, and maybe resolve to do all my cutting before midnight.
I draw extra long necks so I can fold some of the neck under and create a chin. Looks like this one straightened itself out while I was fiddling with the camera. Stronger creasing next time!
Thanks for the props Eddnic, I'm certainly not going to mess with a string, though VK's thread idea could work.

Once again Vermin King's instincts (see Sept 15 post above) prove reliable. With a little work the warforged will stand up without bases. I still recommend basing for gaming, but for photo's they look good without. Still haven't bought those glasses I keep talking about, as the big white chunk on the axe guys hand will attest.
(edited one day later for spelling, sorry about that!)
Ok... you make an AMAZING set of figures, and you draw attention to the fact that there are a couple cutting issues...
Come on, man! I love your style and I this is INCREDIBLE work. Don't be so hard on yourself. This is like taking a picture of a model in a bikini standing in front of a Ferrari, and then saying, "Look at the gap in her teeth."
You make this kind of figure, this level of excellence, only to berrate yourself? I think you need to realize just what a gift you have! Don't point out your weakness, show off your skill! Which there is obviously a lot there...
(I hope this doesn't sounds condescending. I am just trying to encourage you. Please read it as so).

Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
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.

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?

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

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...
