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...
(For what it's worth)....
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

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.

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?
