Thanks to Jim, I have my own project forum to post stuff into. (Thanks, Jim!) ;D
I really do not know what to do here besides post up more of the stuff I have been working on.
Since I am still very new at this, please let me know if you see anything that needs fixing. I tried to learn from the last ratman and lighten this one up a bit, as well as make the color variations more dynamic. I still have one last ratman I'd like to squeeze into the HORDE, but we'll see how that goes.
As you can see I played around with the gem in the chest trying to make it glow. I hope it turned out OK.
There is no pressure to do anything with your own board. I just do this so it's much easier for everyone to stay organized. When you feel compelled to do something, post away, when your tired of it, take a break, the board will be here until you request that I take it down.
I'm really impressed with your figure art ,and you seemed to have captured the right look quickly. It is an ever evolving thing though. I know I like to try new figures just to experiment with new design techniques.
Thanks for the encouragement. I hope I can continue to learn and improve. I really like the One Monk style. When I first found the figures on PaperMakeIt for Jim's Skeleton Pirates months ago I knew I must find more like it. I have been rejecting paper figures left an right because they did not hold a candle to Jim's standard.
I have a bunch of stuff inked from my first attempt at making paper figures. All of the ones so far are from that set. I also have a group of Men-at-arms, some Elves, Ogres, some wizards and the heroes of HeroQuest design. I also have a werewolf, and some GW night goblin types.
Once I run out of these, I hope to design some different critters with some of the stuff I have learned so far. I already have ideas, the problem is restraint. If I go ahead and draw them, I'll want to jump to those and leave the current set behind.
Great work. I'm unable to download the full res rat warrior from Photobucket. Can you check it out? Thanks.
Try it again. I was monkeying around with the files today. I just re-posted it as a PNG format. I discovered that Photobucket tends to over saturate everything if it is saved in a CMYK Color, so I just switched to RGB and saved in a different format to avoid confusion.
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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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?
