Current Projects: Tudor/half timbered Customs House Stone/Brick Customs House Re-examine alignment of cutfiles for Multi-textured Hiring Hall/Public House Still for February Forum Hoard "All Things irish" Small Boat for March Forum Hoard "Landlubbers Need Not Apply" Cutfiles for the Piers and Wharves set
Framing/Sail lofts ( long low buildings where sails are made and ship ribs and keels are laid out and assembled) Ship's Architects Office Sawpit Harbormaster's Office/Pilots house
Future projects. to share on the forum: res-kinning of Vermin King 's Attached shops to match the Hiring Hall/Customs House textures, and making an inner portico/veranda square for them to go around, creating an inner market square... which would require a fountain as well I'd think...

That last project should be real easy, since you have the textures worked out already
That will probably be worked on with the combination Harbormaster/pilots House/office.. found the inspiration in a picture of what is called a "grammar school" and butter market, but i figure a boat or two for the harbour pilots to row out to ships to guide them in would look nice underneath..

I've actually saved some photos of that one and several other 'Market Halls' to get around to eventually.
On the Market theme, I've got the Fiddlers Green Banbury Cross downloaded. It was hand-drawn and poorly scanned before they put it on the site. I need to 'square' it up a bit to get it close to being a decent model. I'm glad I picked up as many of the models as I did when Chip was giving them away free...
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
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
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...
