Going from the left side, to the right side, and indexing the leftmost element with an index of "1", the chainmail No. "2" is the best looking to my eyes. I should add that from a greater distance, the No. "1" better reads as being chainmail, the No. "2" blends in with the overcoat.
Take note -> all of this is from looking at my computer screen, I do not own a printer.
My first idea was third from the left but it looks like aaa hair of Ludwik XIV... So my next combinations have given these variations. Thanks for opinion. Of course, it looks like a chain mail though?
In my opinion from left side 1 and 2, they have more visual power because the head is in black line... anyway, they are so cool...maybe i need to start to copy justtttt a little your pictures, just for learn!
Nice to hear but my workshop is still at the stage of further development. There are many artists in this forum that you can learn from.
First off, that mini looks awesome! Some lines may be darker than they need to be in that figure, but that doesn't mean they're too dark. There are some areas where it's black rather than shading, but that's just a style thing. I think this guy looks fantastic.
pavaro! If you are questioning your designs simply because you haven't seen the same style elsewhere... NO! Do I need to list the wonderful and prolific designers here who have styles completely their own?!? A wise forum member once said in this thread:
"I prefer any of them over none of them. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff. You do good work!"
If I were you, I'd find that person and let him or her know "You're right, and because of your encouraging words, I'm going to finish up a set of my really awesome skeletal minis, and people will like them because they are good."
Oh, and if you want to make sure that set of minis has cutfiles, make sure they fit within the safe cutting area defined in the cutting guides I've attached to a bunch of threads...
I know that we are re-working this topic once again. I still have the impression that I do not have the effect that I would like minis to have. I am thinking of simplified characters with realism. I do not know if it is achievable. Because of the fact that I have been working on my workshop for so long, we have what we have now. So such figures.

I thought I posted here yesterday but it looks like it got lost. I like these figures. The thicker lines on the right sword wielder brings out the detail at distance. I like the Lich just the way he is, too. The magically floating spellbook is a cool touch.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
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?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
