Well, maybe I should stick to monsters. This seems to have come out much better than the palace guards. Even with all of the experimentation. I tried to make him look like a living Ice sculpture.
He is lighter overall so he should print better. I wanted to make his clothing under the armor look like black leather, but I was afraid to bring the contrast too high or else he would not print so well. Has anyone experimented with this?
I do agree with Jim, but it's not just the base of the feet to consider; I notice that we're actually looking partially at the tops of his feet, as if we're looking down on them. You need to completely forget your rules of perspective for these things, and draw everything as if each part is being viewed directly from the front.

I thought you were creating them fresh. I wouldn't worry overly much about the feet, not at least until you start messing around with new designs. Your figures look great, just continue doing however you want. JIM
The best way for me to do this is to find some need such as wanting to create fire, fur, or some other special effect, and then go find a tutorial to try just for that one use. If it works well, I keep it in my bookmarks.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
