I know that this thread was cited by me several times but you must help me. What do you think about my another figurines - PAVARO Studio figurines? Are they acceptable? Or maybe are too "dwarf/midget"? Maybe I should go in a human direction? Human proportions etc.
There's nothing inherently "wrong" with dwarf skeletons - or indeed any other kind, halfling, elf, orc, human, animal, monster, etc. - but it depends whether it's really your chosen drawing style you're meaning here, or how you've designed these specific minis. If meant as dwarfs, the skeletons (especially the one above the J-key) work better that way for me than the vampires.
The vampires too could be non-humans just as much as humans, but if they're meant as humans, the hands seem really over-sized. I'm not sure the pose for the female vampire works too well at present either; a taller, more human-proportioned, redrawing might work better, perhaps (doesn't really look haughty enough just now).
Interesting basing technique too, though I suspect it may be a little restrictive for most gamers
I wanted obtain effect "warhammer battle figurines". They have in itself something unusual. These figures have excessively big hands. Therefore my female vampire has also greater hands etc. I want do figurines with character but I want not do figuirnes for the youngest children only...

I don't play "warhammer" but the large hands themselves don't bother me. I especially like the guy in the red armour and all the skeletons look good. The male vampire seems a little short, since he is standing straight and the skeletons have bent knees or spines. I am not sure how he is holding his sword. In most poses like this the hands would be on top of the pommel. In this case his right wrist seems to pass through the grip.
In general your style is starting to remind me of Patrick Crusiau, and there is nothing wrong with that!
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
I think either works fine. Once printed, some folks print quality will mean there is NO difference. Once printed, some folks eyesight will mean there is NO difference. So, if working in black lines means you don't have to think about colors while laying down lines, I vote black.
As mproteau (Paper Realms) says, the print quality and small size of the peces will probably mean there is little difference. I prefer the lower ones (with the black lines) just to make them "pop" a bit more......
Ok, but I often draw few details on small surface. This causes that a figurines are unclear/blurred. If I use black lines.
First, you don't have to be all-or-nothing. You can use colored lines sometimes, all times, never. Whatever works best. But, you may find that those little details when shrunk down and printed are either *too* detailed to really make a difference. Or, maybe not - in which case you get to use your judgement.
My point is, take heart in knowing that even if you pick the wrong answer, it's not wrong, and your figures will be fine.
I think in general, the black lines add nice contrast. You run the risk of being too subtle with colored lines, but still in some circumstances it might work out better.
I would say A2 and B2 myself. A1 is a bit too short - the head is too large and out of proportion for my taste. As far as the shading goes I would probably have preferred something in the middle. There is just a bit too much dark in the first one - although it may look much better if it were, for example, varying shades of blue.....
I like the Darkest Dungeon characters, but I think the heavy shading on them works due to the overall darkness of the scenes in which they appear (poorly lit etc.) And again, I think having the colouring rather than just the shadows makes a big impact on how you see them.....
I would say that the DD ones (and mainly due to the amount of black on them) remind me of Aston Sperry's style on the earlier Pathfinder Paper Minis. I would suggest checking his DA page for more inspiration: whodrewthis.deviantart.com/gallery/

I cant get back to your drawings to check, but I would say that the rather extreme facial expression and expressive posses of the french cartoon help to make the unrealistic body proportions OK. Charming, even. If the faces on your soldiers were equally expressive I think you could get away with it. Many people seem to like light hearted minis.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

bravesirkevin: Monty Python is mostly just absurdist humor coupled with a snide mockery of convention. They're also just trying to cheekily see what sort of things they could get away with, in much the same way that South Park does.

marcpasquin: I just don't get monthy python. My wife made me watch Monthy Python and the Holy Grail and, yes, there are a few funny bits. But on the whole, I don't get why a bunch of vikings rappelling into a restaurant while chanting "spam-spam-spam" is funny.
