I swear I just noticed a couple more things of yours on sale that weren't on sale earlier this month. I think I bought about a dozen of your sets this month for just a dollar each. I feel like I'm taking advantage of you or something. Thank you. A lot.
Also, thanks for making things simple to cut and build. I got an autocutter as a gift, but I really like being able to take a bunch of printouts with me somewhere and cut them out with a scissors. I can't do that with a lot of stuff because its too complicated for scissors. Either need a hobby knife or autocutter.
I don't use robocutters, so I need to be able to build everything using just scissors and an X-Acto. I've kind of embraced the fact that my models are easy to build, although I know there are folks who say my models look too "flat" and would prefer more gribbly bits. I consider it a feature, not a bug.
Couldn't agree more Mister G. I like the fact that I can print, cut and assemble most of your models on my knee while I'm watching the TV in an evening after a hard day, and I know they're going to look great on the table. Win-Win. There are one or two with fiddly bits- such as staircases, but even then, it's a matter of patience, not complexity.
I have no need for extra gribbly bits on your models (though an extension pack with awnings, bay windows, porches, shop signs and other street dressing would be good). I do crave some with a less rectangular footprint so I can make more crooked streets, but at a push I can just fiddle with the geometry in the photoshop files. And that's the beauty of DGM.
Building a New Elysium. 29 buildings and counting...
I will totally second the idea of having an expansion pack of awnings and bay windows etc! I've been kitbashing them for my own models (using both DGM and Fat Dragon parts), but a set of additional street-side bits would be awesome.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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.

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?
