I just saw a pattern I liked and repeated it over and over
As you probably know by now, I don't use 3d model software, so I am stuck counting pixels, using geometry, and wielding a sledgehammer. Been a long week, so I am not going to get to this until tomorrow ... if my brain is clear. In the meantime, back to the sekibune

Finished the angle fix. There was a small discrepancy between frontal and the rear angle, nothing significant. The angle should be within 1-2 degrees of the proper one now, bigger or smaller depending on the thickness of the paper, the glue used, and the unavoidable paper wrapping.
I did small tweaks to the texture at few places. Nothing significant, you did the base well.
If you are in a hurry, print is as it is. Otherwise, I will post the printer friendly version in a few hours.

Even though my initial geometry came from a tank, I should be okay with the way the drive and road wheels are set up. Side skirts seem to usually have a shorter front fender than the rear fender, so I think it is fine, but the front track angle seems a bit steep. I might come back and change that.
Thanks for fixing that angle and doing the line-art file. On my third attempt, I called it 'good enough'. Thank you for not being satisfied with 'good enough'.
I can design things, but my strongest area is grabbing ideas and getting a rough plan that can be hammered into a model. My next best area is modifying. One of these days I'm going to have to learn a 3d design program
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
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?

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...
