I kinda like that she's closer to the ground in the first one - kinda like she's trying to be more approachable or less threatening to mortals. If you decide to do both, there's always plenty of room on the pages of the hoards. Great looking figure!
Been struggling to get something done for this months horde, but alas will be unable to finish.
Took me 6 redo's to get this from a basic thumbnail, and I'm still a bit unhappy with it, I have really gotten rusty! I still need to spend some time loosening up the drawing muscles, my hand and arm ache like hell trying to draw again.
Anyway, was trying to make a Kratos and Hades figures, but only got Kratos to this stage. Hope image shows up...
Will try to get these two figures finished up but will probably be next month.. JIM
okumarts has a post about a wood elf avatar, but the image in the post has a set of cyan lines through it, so I'm not sure it's a final submission. Vermin King posted a dwarven chariot, but I can't tell if it is a submission or not. aaron posted a whole set of dark elf horses, but I don't think this was a submission.
I'm going to start assembling a PDF of the figures I know were submissions, and I'll be making cutfiles for them. Please chime in about the other posts that I wasn't sure about.
In the future, the following would be super to speed up my end of things. Of course, I'll take what I can get, and I always appreciate people sharing their work. This stuff just makes my life a little easier on the packaging process:
1) when making a submission, put the word SUBMISSION right at the start of the reply. That'll make it obvious to me that there's something meant to go into the hoard. If you want to recall something, just edit the post to remove the word SUBMISSION. 2) if possible, submit images as PNG files with transparencies, where the image is 8.5x11" at 300 dpi. This makes it much easier for me to pull images together onto one sheet without having to think too hard. 3) if possible, use the forum hoard tabs. There's a package that includes a variety of standard tab sizes. It's not critical, but if you're making your own tabs and would rather have tabs that are styled in a more common fashion, feel free to use the ones that are available in the forums.

Admittedly, it sounds like it's only useful for someone who is assembling the hoard (me) but in fact it has a sheet with tabs on it. Using a standard tab isn't all that big of a deal, but I list it in case someone is submitting something to the hoard and they're thinking "I need to make a tab - maybe I'll just draw a randomly sized box and call it a day". At least the more I advertise the existence of the production packet, the more likely someone will say "no need to reinvent the wheel - I'll use what's already there!"
WOW I had no idea that was even a thing?? so the black part of the base of the model with the red line is called a Tab and they have standerdised sizes?? who knew?? humm I have always just made a box that fit the model and never even thought about what size it was??? hummmmm more things to think about ....
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?

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...
