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.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
