Someone suggested this before, and it's not a bad idea at all.Coloring my projects is the real hurdle that holds me up, and the aspect I'm least talented at. I'll provide Black and White Line art in fine miniature form and you color it to your liking, hopefully sharing your results here, so we can submit them to the horde
I appreciate any work you do coloring, please take credit for your work and add your name to models base so people outside of this thread will know.

From what I can tell, you and I don't seem to see our work for what it is.
We compare ourselves to others like Tommygun, Dave Okum, Adam Steele, Labrat... I could go on and on...
Maybe instead of comparing your work to Adam Steele's, you need to compare your work to Adam Souza's!
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that your stuff and your talent isn't as good as his. I am NOT saying that at all. As a matter of fact, I like some of your stuff MUCH better than some of his stuff.
I was thinking of this the other day. Imagine if EVERYONE's stuff looked the same. Sure, it would be awesome to have all figures blend together with the same style... but then again diversity is cool in it's own right. Imagine the Mona Lisa done in the style of Andy Warhol... (how's THAT for an example!!)
I like some stuff that looks very realistic, but I also like big honking robots... and super heroes. If we were limited to just one kind of figure, one style, look at what we'd be missing.
As far as using crayons, I have been working for MONTHS to complete my undead set of figures that I am releasing with Inked Adventures. I have tried SEVERAL computer programs only to have EACH one have it's share of problems. Billiam Babble suggested that I do what I knew... So I broke out the magic markers. In short, the set is being reviewed and prepared for release.
See, if you try to be someone else, or do things like someone else, you stop being yourself. Your artwork suffers. As a result, the forum and all the people here suffer, because they lose out on your work.
We don't need more "wanabe clones." We need more Adam Souza's, and dare I say, more David Wears here doing what they can and enjoying it.
Sure you are no David Okum, and I for one am GLAD! Afterall, he is a brilliant designer, but I never downloaded any M.A.D.'s that he designed!
(I am sure that I will need to read this a few times myself when I feel put down by my work. )
So, there you have it... Putting away my pom-poms, and climbing down off my soapbox.
for what it's worth...
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
Thank you for the positive reinforcement Kiladecus ;D
I know what you mean, there is soo much great work done here, and a big part of it's strength is diversity.
Imnntt, I love the coloring your did.
The bones really pop, and the colored tribal is something I hadn't even considered. The orange border was a great choice, as it compliments the flames well. The shading and glare on the back of the head were nice touches as well. Thank you for contributing your talent.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

shep: Ah, I see. Good to know.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.
Jan 22, 2020 13:52:08 GMT -9
shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
