I have had this on the drafting table since before I found out there was a Forum for One-Monk Miniatures. I actually have a about two pages of figures that I have finally finished inking in and scanning. I wanted to try my hand at coloring, and thought I would start with something that matches this month's Horde.
It should be correctly scaled at 300 dpi. To be honest I have never added a tab or outline before so I am not sure of the sizes. The coloring my be a little too dramatic for a color printer as well, I am not sure...
I also have to admit that I take after Stevelortz, when it comes to designing. I drew the mini, took it to the lightboard, and traced the back.
After getting it digital, I realized that I should have inked the front before tracing the back. Too late now that I have two pages of these.
I tried to do as much correction as I could so the two halves match.
Let me know if you see anything that needs correcting.
Oh, wow, that's awesome work - I especially love the colouring on the fur. Well done! ;D
I've given it the once-over, and I certainly don't see any glaring mistakes. The closest I can see is the top end of the club, where it looks like part of it's facing both forwards and backwards (in that we can see the top from both sides). But that's probably easily explained by saying the top's got a bit of a curve to it and peaks in the middle.
Definitely looking forward to seeing your future efforts!
Yea, dramatic coloring really brings out the dimensionality of the figures and gives them their 3D look. I have also found that dark colored outlines make the different color sections pop, and give the figure clear definition.
Wow did that sound professional... wheres my rubber chicken??? JIM
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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
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?
