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: 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

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...
