Scaling down to a smaller model, this next potential project is an Elemental Shrine. While there could be numerous reasons for its existence, each side of the shrine will feature one of the 4 basic elements of earth, wind, fire and water. As an example for game play purposes, the shrine may offer oracle-type prophecies to individuals who enter one of its 4 doors. Is it possible they are teleported to another plane of existence where they receive such information? And are the details significant enough to alter the character's destiny? In the end, they may or may not exit the same door as per details created during the game's setup.
In any any case, the unique design of the shrine could be your next talked about center piece!
OOh. Will there be a floorplan/battlemat? I *know* what I'm thinking!
The building is smaller than it looks. From door-to-door, it's 4 inches long on each side, making a '+' shape. The doorways are 2 inches wide. Therefore, I'm debating whether a battlemap of the shrine would even be worth it. Comments are welcome.
Final Update: With the amount of requests I've received I decided to build out the interior of the Elemental Shrine. The really fun part for me was breaking ground, learning new techniques I've never done with any other model. The two images shown are the interior sides of air and fire. The release of this model is scheduled to be one week from today (11/6).
Will it have an all over plain render on the outside too? An Elemental Shrine is great, but with a plain render it can also be a mausoleum, a town square centrepiece or whatever too.
No, with the various textures and mounted props surrounding the building already in place it was intended to be based on an elemental theme. Otherwise, I'd be looking at re-designing parts of the model as well as the textures, which at this stage is not feasible.
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...
