Despite lurking here and benefiting from everyone's generosity, I've been content to remain quiet on the forums. I have to come out of the shadows, though, and say that I'm really thankful for all of the imperfect people you've released! You've put out such a massive collection of figures - it's been a real treat that you've made them available.

WOW! These really pop on high quality paper. I always use simple photocopier paper (the munch all you want, I'll make more theory), but these look great. The colors are much brighter (I also only print on medium quality, my wife says I should try high quality).

Firstly I was surprised then break down... perhaps because that just spent couple of hours coloring just ONE Dragonslayer figurine - and it's A-side only (however, to be fair, B-side should take no longer than 30min after all colors, textures and spec. effects are "developed").
And now... now I'm reading that it might be printed on xero paper in draft quality... ouch... buuu...!

My wife says I should tell you that the Crazy Cat Lady is the only piece based on a real person who lives down the block from us, same hair, same funny eye... (and over a hundred cats at last count). I find it is a must-have piece for any town or village.
I want to say something, for what it's worth... You have a style that is unique, and fun. I have many of your figures and I think my favorite (non-bike) figures are the Templars you did with the Inked Adventure set.
Well, that was until I saw these! Your skills have really improved, but you still manage to hang onto your trademark style. You are doing a great job, and I appreciate the gift that you share with the rest of us...

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

Good to know the link worked. It seems 4-Share has been losing some of my files latey.
Kil: Thanks for the kind words. I'm doing the original art about 50% larger than before and now have an actual Light Box (instead of my improvised contraption that barely worked) to do the backs with so they line up much better. And I suppose the more I draw, the more I learn.
Anyway, I released Imperfect Lumberjacks after I did the Oddities (they are listed under my Projects), and as of today I have the front ink done for a set I wanted to get out before the holidays, which may or may not happen, a set of Revellers, for villages engaged in holiday celebrations. It should include 4 new Musicians (in 2 different color schemes for a total of 8) and 8 Dancing Villagers (4 men and 4 women in 2 different color schemes for a total of 16). Whether or not they'll get done, I'm not sure yet.
Good to see your figures are doing well. With the addition of so many fine artists on the site, I can get back to doing odd background NPCs which is what Imperfect People were all about to begin with. ;D Dryw the Harper
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)
