In a game I ran this was the scene of an epic battle between the Venician secret service and an army of airshipborn ninja who were going to assasinate the Doge by setting fire to the tower using parabolic mirrors. He was saved.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Love the forced perspective in that first model. Last year, I helped my daughter do a papercraft model of the Eiffel tower, and we did forced perspective on the mall in front of the tower, with the near trees and paths exaggerated to make it look more "real" if you got right down close to the display.
That's going to be a great souvenir for your ladies. (Girls? Womenfolk? They all sound sexist...how about "female loved ones?")

Understatement time -- Glenda and Kathy were underwhelmed with St. Marks and St. Peters. I think it's time to do something for me again, or something I wanted to do for someone else. Hitchhiker's Book for my IT guy, Samurai helmet for Mike before he moves, or that 1908 London Motor-cab. The Doctor Who Fobwatch by Hellsword for me.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
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...
