I just built this kit and it looks fairly sharp, but I have to say I am a little disappointed. I am used to getting a whole lot more in your kits. This building will make good filler in my cities, but the basic brick-like shape and standard placement of doors and windows with no pipes or bellows included means that I'll have to print pages from other models if I want to spice this one up. Luckily, I caught this one on sale. I like these roof braces you're including in your newer kits. Is there any chance you might go back and make a few for some of your older kits? It would certainly speed construction and improve the strength of the models. I definitely liked Steampunk Building No. 1 better than this model, but this is still a good model. It is just not as good as you normally produce. I own over fifty of your kits currently and plan on buying more.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

Dave, you have set your own bar to a height that isn't reached by every single one of your models.
@blackcat13, when most of Dave's collection is on sale, it's hard to appreciate that some models were priced lower for less detail. On the other hand, this does have multiple skins, which adds to the value. I hope Dave does this more for enjoyment than the cash, because he invests a lot of time developing the textures, the layered pdf's, and doing the production behind-the-scenes stuff. I feel guilty stocking up when they go on sale, sometimes, but on the other hand, many of the kits wouldn't be in my collection if they weren't on sale. Are there specific models you want to see this roof-brace system?
And we always like to see photos...
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

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

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?
