Hey everyone - I'm slowly getting some textures together as well as putting together a process for making models and instructions and all that. Hopefully real soon now I'll have a couple little buildings showing up on DriveThruRPG! Now that I've got these out of the way, I'm going to try to wrap up some tile textures and then get to work on a new wall texture for buildings!
Well, that was exciting! These first products got published as I was starting a marathon work meeting, so I got to watch as people discovered and downloaded the freebie model throughout the meeting. Feel free (pun intended!) to have a peek.
Thanks for the kind words, guys. I had to weigh sitting around and NOT releasing anything with scaling back on the complexity of models (these are quite simple) and the number of texture options (I only have the stone texture on them). As such, I think the normal price is ok, and not out of line with other models. Yeah, they're on sale right now, but you gotta start somewhere, right? These little models let me learn how to make instructions (I hope they are clear enough) and how to package things up with promo pics and logos and stuff. As I get more experience at this, I'll have more textures at my disposal, so I can offer more layer options, more complex geometry etc.
I'm honestly just thrilled that I've gotten off my butt and pulled the trigger. My family has a New Year tradition to write down three things we're thankful for from the previous year, and three things we'd like to accomplish in the coming year. I've had this on my list every year so far!
Great paper buildings ( easy but with lots of character ). Bravo!
I'm sorry but I have some problems with Two Story House files. I have downloaded the zip file twice (yesterday and today, a few minutes ago). When I try to open it, something is wrong. In the folder there are only the base and the two jpg images. If I check the zip file I can see all pdf files in it, but when I try to extract them the program give me an error and extracts only those mentioned before.

There are buildings like these still in use in eastern Ontario. Many farm houses were built of stone in the 1800's. The only thing out of place is the tile roofs. Wooden shingle or tin would make them fit right in.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
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...
