I tried to be quiet during the voting, but this was a tough one.
1. The Dragon Turtle is beautiful artwork. Don't have a need for it, but it has to be on the shelf 2. Neo Starships is a wonderful concept with great art, and don't forget all the ancillary stuff 3. The Market Stalls is another beautiful submission with lots of doo-dads that make it special 4. Kings Road is also phenomenal. Great layers, but probably a victim of being similar to mproteau's other tile sets. Which doesn't mean this set isn't equally special 5. Three Penny Bridge is such a cohesive whole. Taking the various models and combining to form a partially fortified, structure laden bridge is wonderful 6. Modular Darkfast Dungeons is gorgeous and very well thought out.
I am so very impressed with each of these. Very nicely done
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
You're too kind, Vermin King - I am really chuffed to be able to be in the running, but I am really happy to see the voting favor the entries it did. It's nice to see I backed a winner!
printableheroes really shows off how amazing paper miniatures can look on the table - I would never be able to find the time to elevate my (currently non-existent) painting skills to that level! The starships uptrainfan89 made show off how paper isn't just for flat vertical miniatures. They add dimension, and are wonderfully crafted. And soaringraven consistently presents builds with amazing levels of detail at a scale that would make any player's jaw drop.
Thank you everyone who participated this year in the Papercuts. I hope everyone that has any reach into their own little slice of a gaming community has shared links to the forums and let people know that there are great resources to help fill up their tables!

A tie?!? Wow, that's great. You folks really put me through the ringer this time. Such a close shave. Anyways, thanks to everyone who voted for us, thanks to all the participants, and thanks to Eric for once again hosting the Papercuts. Congratulations to uptrainfan89 for winning the competition and allow me to express my appreciation for many of the entries this year. It's a blast that we won the competition, too, but seriously there were quite a number of entries that would have deserved the honor just as well.
And thanks once again to everyone who took their time to give feedback or praise for our work. It's great to win something, but it's more important to know that someone out there likes what you do, maybe even is inspired by it. I'm often too lazy to give feedback myself and therefore I'm especially happy about every response we get.
Thank you mproteau and verminking for your comments. I´m so thankful that there are people who like what we do. I really want to post more but it is still difficult for me to write in english. Especially all the paper crafting vocabulary. But I love all the great results of your work and I have great plans for some of your models. I hope my husband won´t go crazy with all my ideas.
it's an engaged community that makes events like this possible and fun.
You know, the stats say "we" have nearly 3K memebers but we got only 34 people voting for "Best of Show" and the other categories have similar numbers.
I wonder what would happen if people could only download the submissions if they voted.
BTW: Congrats all. This year was full of tough choices.
Yeah, but most days see around 35-45 members and admin staff actually visiting the Forum, so 34 people is about an 85% turnout, far, far better than most nations manage for political elections
As for rewards for voting, they don't really work all that well either - same as making voting compulsory - as you end up with people voting from spite, or randomly, not for the "right", that is sensible and considered, reasons. Sadly, none of this is easy to resolve, witness the recent UK and US post-voting chaos, still on-going, amongst other places.
Fully agree about the difficulty of the Papercuts choices this year though; personally, I thought everyone who entered had already won!
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"
Feb 26, 2019 20:44:53 GMT -9
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?
