Hello, I’ve been lurking around here for awhile now. I’ve greatly appreciated all the great minis everyone has posted here, and have found uses for many of them. Real Life has kept me too busy to contribute thus far, but finally I’ve had some time to work on some figures.
You may have seen some of my stuff in the old MMIP contest, I did the Darringtons, and some mermaids. One of my favorite RPGs is WFRP, but I certainly don’t have the money to buy and paint GW minis (to say nothing of the patience!). One character type I can never find minis for is halflings, so I’ve started to work on an assortment of the little buggers. Here is the first one I’ve completed.
P.S. Any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Very cool! And nice to see you designing again. The only recommendation I'd make is to test print your design at the finished size to see if the details can be seen. Other than that, there is no reason you shouldn't be making a bunch of these.
I really like the shading and highlights, and the colors. JIM
This is a great style, and can't wait to see more of your stuff. I'm new to the boards and I haven't had the chance to see the work you did on the Darringtons, and mermaids. Is there a link I can go to to check them out?
Excellent! Now I'm going to start pestering you about flat feet. The figures look like are tippy toe. I think you will find that drawing with a flat horizon will make the figures look more grounded and solid footed. JIM
Looking good Draggah. The shading on this one stands out nicely.
Even standing tip toe, though the parts of his toes touching the ground should be flat. It is easiest just drawing a straight line at the bottom and drawing the curving of the toes coming up from that. Don't worry I had the same problem with my first designs. Once I started doing them the proper way, they looked much better on the battlefield.
cowboyleland: I am thinking now that it coincides with about the time I downloaded an add blocker. I wonder if it is killing the cookies that used to keep me logged in. Anyway, not really a problem.

Vermin King: I use CCleaner every day to clean the oddball stuff that collects on my computer, which would clear out things like that any way. But usually, I stay logged on all day until I do the clean-up

cowboyleland: Did Proboards get rid of the "Leave me logged in" button?
