I'm going to use this thread to highlight collaborative paper miniature works I've been fortunate to have been a part of.
It's a work in progress, so please be patient if I don't have something we've done together displayed here right away. Off the top of my head, I have models with done with Paladin and Okum that I need to rescale and rehost before I can add them to this thread in thumbnail format.

Cool idea going on here, Adam. What about my Robot-interpretation of WWWeird-Hoard? Should I finish the second file (the "raw data") - or do you want to cut away the black background by yourself? Sorry, if I sound like delegating boring, but necessary work ... ;D . What do you think?
Adam, thanks again for wanting the 'finishing' part of my work/duty! But you also have very specific ideas about mounting the minis, so ... thanks for doing this! ;D
Kiladecus is right: AWESOME! I am thinking for some time now about gamecard tools for roleplaying purposes. Wide and open field ... card-driven roleplaying to get rid of some nasty data tracking stuff ... .
Beware the spelling devil: "Necromancer". Holy Crap - 60.000 GP.

I feel creative mostly during the hours I should be sleeping, so spelling errors have been known to slip past...
I'll start a separate thread for the cards. They are great to give the players something to visualize and keep me from having to dig back into the rule books every time I need some information. They are a definite step up from hand written index cards.
I played MTG back during the first year of it's release and then sold all my cards to buy the Star Wars CCG. I enjoyed the game play, but not the collectable aspect.
Back when I did my first RPG games, I did cards for my players. I had cards for all of the equipment and items. I loved the fact that you would say, this is what you found, and gave the player a stack of cards.
That way he could keep the items secret, or not. When they "sold" an item or "bought" one, I would take it, and the player would make the changes on their sheet. BOY, I wish I would have had Dave Graffam's money sets back then!
It was a good concept, and I had sheets of common items, uncommon and rare. For the unique items, I would just handwrite the stuff on a blank card.
I had a slot for the name, description, a pictue, and even the cost according to the condition of it.
I could do a LOT with my Commodore 64! I used to have the files saved from one computer to another... I wonder if I can find them again.
The bad part of it is my artwork still looks the same.
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...

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?
