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.
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?
