I'm inclined to agree about the darker stones. I've done my initial test-builds/prints and then done some revisions...the grid doesn't show up at all on the test-print, that tile is just a big greenish blur (upper right in the pics) so I played with some settings for better contrast and the result of darkening the difference clouds layer is in the lower right...didn't look right, so I played with some other settings (levels, clouds overlay) and got a brighter less muddier tile, but still too orangey-gold (the ones on the left). Needs a little more just plain white in the mix.
I've done some minor tweaks to the stones to balance the colors, moved a flap, brightened the moss on the fallen and broken pillar segments, and added glowing eyes to the figures in the pillars so they'd be more apparent. So those are done and their styles are set. I'll make the rougher style of big standing obelisk tonight and apply these styles and techniques to them so they'll match.
Then I'll draw a magical pentagram in a circle to drop into the pieces with the clearings. Closer...
I like were your going with this Eric. I'd like to see a bigger monolith as well, and I like the standing rocks to. How about making some snow covered terrain. Most everyone who makes tiles make grass, dirt and dungeon tiles but you don't see much in the snow covered plains or rocky terrain. I think that you could really fill a need there. Just a thought.

They actually tile pretty well, not 100% seamless, but better than many proffessional tiles I've purchased, so that makes me pretty happy.
Still working on the other tile styles, worked through a good stone texture and made more pillars. Started to make a bigger pillar, as opposed to the stone columns, and remembered an old ziggurat project, so I used the building blocks from that old project with the new textures;
Here's the stone column assortment;
Next I'm working on the slightly larger pillars and getting back to the tile variations.
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...
