First time trying to contribute to the forum hoard
Maybe because I've never seen a desert in my life, so that I could think of something more real, the theme of this month makes me think only about post-apocalyptic worlds and the people who inhabit them.
Anyway, I was happy to draw one of my favorite heroes and I will work on this image to resize it and make it a proper paper figure, while experimenting on a comic book style (sort of. "Style" seems a very big word applied to myself).
Terrific, Nemo, it's some powerful work, and the more graphic stylization suits the subject well. I can see this guy fitting in well as a smuggler/space pirate/rebel in Star Wars, Firefly, or Mad Max settings...

A younger (thirty something) friend of mine told me a few weeks ago that he finally saw "Mad Max" and wasn't impressed. It may be hasn't aged well, but I think you really must be a 17 year old (male?) to really "appreciate" that movie. I know I did.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
I actually don't know. I saw all three movies for the first time a couple of years ago (I was 30-ish) and I seemed to recognize many elements in them that I saw being re-used massively in more recent works. So I do appreciate them for being so seminal.
I'll admit that I haven't actually seen any of the Mad Max movies, I think only Beyond Thunderdome was the only one to come out when I was old enough to be aware of it... I'll have to put them on the summer watch list.
I made some tries printing the finished mini and I'd say it's kinda good. I'm sorry I only have the camera in my phone to show you the result and it's kind of unjust for the fine job made by the printer.
Anyway, I'll adjust a couple of details and to me he's going to be finished.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

gav: seen them was thinking a bit dodgy, that's cleared up. I take it the plastic ones I am seeing are the same.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
