These are really great figures. I love the way you have posed them, and terrific use of vector graphics.
How are you planning to use them? Any specific games/rulesets in mind?
Currently I'm using the characters as inspiration (and procrastination) for a novel that I'm trying to write. I'm hoping that by making a few of the characters move from my imagination to the physical world, will help spark ideas and maybe fill in the gaps in my plot lines.
Actually I'm probably a bit of an anomaly as I don't play any games. I used to play non-miniature games like Cyberpunk, Vampire: The Masquerade, After the Bomb (hence all the animal characters), D&D, etc. I also played Bloodbowl and dabbled a bit with Warhammer 40K. Currently I'm not involved in any games. I still like to check them out, partially for the game mechanics but mostly for the artwork and back story.
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
Hooray for After the Bomb and down with the Empire of Humanity!
I really liked the ATB animal character generation system. The game mechanics weren't my favorite (Cyberpunk's system was way easier to use for conflict resolution and fast game play), but I really liked being able to decide just how human I wanted my animal character to be.

Palladium is known for its time consuming character creation process. Its a bit annoying for one nighters, but with a committed groupand consistent gaming schedule, I prefer the longer character creation processes. It helps me get attached to the character a lot more.
Ive done dozens of while wolf characters, for example, but i was about as attached to them as much as I was attached to the pizza boxes they were written on; once it served it purpose, it was worthless.
besides, what other game system has rules for playing spider goats?

I totally forgot about After the Bomb, and TMNT RPG, I just picked up both for reference material for more Apocalyptic figures. It looks like I could make a thousand different figures and still not cover everything!
I'll be looking into making a bunch of modular mutant and other parts for mix and match figures.
Mutants would be good to design too, it's easy to cover anatomy issues by just calling them deformed mutants. JIM
So far I've finished the front view. I'll probably wait on the back view until I get my Robot submission for December finished. Although I could put a key on his back and claim he is a wind-up mouse... Nah!
Let me know what you think. -WaffleM

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?
