Current Events thread was getting a little long in the tooth so I thought I'd start another one.
On the board:
•Standard Merchant 50ton Launch Deck Plans - 3 variations - Also includes a 20ton variant with it's own variations - 2 price points: * $2.89 for the base package or * $4.49 for the base package with a promise of delivery of the Standard Merchant 200ton Trader Deck Plans upon their completion
•Starport Folk - 8 different humans one might encounter in Starports, from vendors to laborers to thugs - 3 variations on each design for a total of 24 minis
•Standard Merchant 200ton Trader Deck Plans - Haven't yet determined the number of variations, probably 3-4 - Cargo Deck and Passenger Deck, minimum of 50 pages - This package will include the previous package - Price Point: $5.99 (discount offered in a special release of the 50ton Launch above)
That Standard Merchant I hope to have out by November, assuming I manage to raise the money I need to take a month off so I can give my cousin a Kidney; the down time will be when I get it done.
the Launch is coming along great, I've already rendered the variations on the 50ton and just need to assemble them, then finish rendering the variations on the 20ton and package them all together. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks; after that the Starport Folk should be within a week of that release.
Oy! Thanks to three teenagers and the eldest being in a long term relationship, my internet has been down for a couple of months. I've been using the cellular data, but also thanks to three teenagers, that's been slowed to a crawl.
As a result, it's taking 45 minutes to get a product into the store.
Despite these setbacks, I have several new items to share, I just don't have preview images to link here as those are always separate uploads to my DA page.

So if you are one of the ten lucky customers who has already purchased Vol 9 Space Port Folk 2, I noticed this morning that in my creative flurry to put this set together I neglected to flip the switch on one of my photoshop actions to put my own copyright back into the mix, and the first edition has Palladium's copyright on the minis.
Fixed it, a second download will replace the previous version.
I'm working on several projects but day to day gets in the way. I have a set of Zhodani Marines on the stove simmering. I've got a few pieces done for the El Cheapo Fantasy Folk line, starting with Fighters and Mages. Before I complete any of those however, I'm writing a piece about Demon Clowns for the Demon Hunters World Bible and Art Book. That will lead into Demon Hunters Licensed Paper Minis as well.

AFTER Valentines Day FLASH SALE from El Cheapo Products! All paper minis and portraits packages will be 30% off from 9am Friday through Sunday! Get'em while they're cheap and don't Forget to "Talk about YOUR El Cheapo!"
I'm curious how many people would be interested in this; I'm adding an extra .pdf to each of my products with larger miniatures; my standard minis are to scale with a 1 inch = 5 feet grid, but standard minis are generally much larger, so now I'm including 1.75 inch versions. Note that I haven't just enlarged the existing minis, I'm making these from the original portrait sized renders so they are the highest resolution they can be.
Future Folk is the first set I have done, if you've purchased it go download the new set and tell me what you think.
Eight unique Navy Folk with three face variations and 12 uniform colors each, for a total of TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY-EIGHT full page 8.5x11 inch Portraits!!!! Each page has 13 additional layers to alter the character to fit your needs! (In Acrobat you can activate the Layers tab by using View > Show/Hide > Navigation Panes > Layers.

Okay, I've been a bit lax.
Currently I've been plugging away at artwork for the Journal of the Travellers Aid Society Kickstarter; I only have a few more ships to design and I'll be done with that.
But I think this weekend I'll try to launch my El Cheapo Fantasy Folk line. I'm about finished with the Fighters set, what should come next? Magic Folk? Sneaky Folk? Religious Folk? Gimme some feedback.

Well, eventually you will "need" to release all those. I think Religious Folk is going to be the hardest because the symbols they use are likely to be setting specific. If you have some lightly armoured fighters they might do for Sneaky Folk for a while so maybe start with Magic Folk?
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

With 3 teenagers and a mortgage, my wife and I make enough money to scrape through by the skin of our teeth living from check to check. Anything extra has to come from the part-time gig, so when I was in the accident at the end of June it almost cost me going to GenCon.
The day job is salary so I have to get in at least 40 hours each week; as I only have one consumer right now and their parents take them on a home visit at random, I sometimes have to work doubles to get my hours in. Last week was that way, they didn't inform me they were taking the consumer until Tuesday afternoon, so despite a head cold I had to stay a couple extra hours that day and then work 16 hours the next.
Since my coronary episode in May I get up at 4am and jog (read - old man shuffle-run) 5k every morning before work. Getting up at 4am and getting to bed after a 16 hour shift at 12am, only to get back up at 4am and do it all over again.. I'm 45, that sh!t gets old quick.
Lastly, the consumer I watch is a severe schizophrenic, with daily outbursts of absurd nonsense that my autistic need for order is extremely taxed by. If you walked up to any random person on the street and asked them to define 'batdoody crazy', this is the person they would describe.

Not making light of your situation, but ...
You have a wife who is employed, keeping you afloat.
You have three teenagers.
You had the coronary episode early enough in life that you can get back to a fairly good health in your old age. If you were my age and had the episode, it might have been the big one. Too many folks my age have their first episode and don't make it. There are many things out there that can seem overwhelming, but sometimes you have to scrape away some of the muck and see the blessings, too. When I was young, I was heading down a less-than-favorable path. Face it, if they have to pump your stomach twice in the same month due to alcohol poisoning, that should be warning enough that you are not being a good steward of your health, but I received a blessing, an ulcer.
I had to stop drinking almost entirely. If I hadn't had the ulcer, I doubt I'd be here now. As a side note, about ten years ago, I had a stomach issue and they had to run tests. No sign of the ulcer. Ulcers aren't supposed to ever 'go away'. Evidently mine did.
Count your blessings, sir. And don't let the 'barsteads' get you down
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
cowboyleland: It looks like you guys are busy, but I would like to point out that the "Ghoul Design Tutorial." which would start to answer bobsomething 's question from Aug 10, is MIA (again)
