Anita-> Thanks! Not really I am just became angry because of it. Stupid stupid adobe. >< xDD and stupid stupid me that I cannot save in time. I can change color easily with useing the hue function. xD Ok it is not the same as I choose the color by myself... but... xD
Beau-> ;D I am glad that you and your daughter like it. Madison is your daughter right? Happy she likes Pinky's name. Its popped up in my mind today that I must made Pinky to a female... I hope its not a big problem that the unicorn Pinky is a he xDD sry for that.
Sirrob->Thanks! I am happy you like it! ^^ Thanks for the advice but I dont wanna pay for it. =/ I think I will use the mediafire for the original sized. And yeah this unicorn just bigger with a 100 pixel xDD not much though. =P
Finally I finished the Nightmare Unicorn! I cant beleive it. It was a long work, ok not as much as the Original... or is it? *thinking*hmmmm dunno. But I am sure that the longest part of it was the fire. X__X I almost died when making it. xDD My dear sis *hugs* gave me a cool realistic fire tutorial. If you are interested in it, here it goes the link: www.tutorialwiz.com/realistic_fire/ Unfortunatelly it has negative sides but because I must do a black frame around the unicorn that doesnt really matter there. Ok you can noticed that the fire change its color when it meets with the unicorn's darker parts. Thats because I need to change the blending of the fire layer to linear dodge. Ok I will stop telling you guys the technical details. I dont think that anybody is interested in it, and my English also terrible. xD So about the fire: I am not really satisfied with it. =/ When I imagine that unicorn in my mind I imagine it a better fire, but thats all I can do with it. I am especialy dont like it's tail. But I like how the other parts just turned out. I hope you too. ^__^ I have used a leather texture for the skin, from there: www.cgtextures.com/
And here it goes the Nightmare Unicorn's photobucket resized one -it's bigger than the Original Unicorn, because it is a beast, tell me if you find it tooo big-:

Love the Nightmare Unicorn. It can even be easily modified into a normal Nightmare if the situation calls for it.
I'd love to see you create a normal farm work-horse or draft horse, the type that does the plowing or pulls a farm cart (maybe even with a sway-back). I bet he'd be full of personality. ;D Keep up the great work, Dryw the Harper
Hey Xtea! See you didn't need to be that worried about those colors, the special unicorn looks nice, and the golden hooves and horn is fine. I'd make the hooves lighter, to make it more goldis looking rather than brown. I also think you should raise the contrast on the mane/tail a bit, to give it more shade and highlights and make the strands of hair jump out. These are all little changes in adobe --pulling slide bars. I've found a very cool way with the levels tool too... Either way is good for you. I hope you don't mind criticizing you so much. You got this eye glowing business down good, and the hooves are fixed. Good job sis!
Originally I came here to put up the lineart of the new "horse". For this time it is a pegasus. I drew the pose from a figure which I found in the net. it was a really great figure, here is the site->http://www.theplatelady.com/fairyfigurines.htm The pegasus figure is in the bottom. ^^ So here it goes the lineart:
I havent done the other side yet. What do you think?
Hrm merged layers? But but... why? Was it an accident? The contrast helps, even the body looks better, but it is really the mane and the tail that needs it, and it would still need more lights and shades.
About the pegasus I'd select the wing and stretch it a bit bigger. I know that you've ran out of paper drawing that ;-) It doesn't need to be too much bigger, but this wouldn't lift that horse up. It is a pretty pegasus.
Floyd-> Thanks! I am glad you like them. ^^ And I cant wait to finish the set finally.
Anita-> No accident just my stupidity. But for now on I will try to not flatten the image. =P Unfortunatelly if I give more contrast and brightness to it the skin looks really ugly... so thats the maximum what I can do. =/ I wanted to draw a bigger wing to the pegasus, but as you said I run out of paper. xDD I use a whole A/4 sized paper to it. Though the paper was stand. =/ I will try to increase the wings size when I will do the other side. Thanks! ^^
Thanks to my dear sister, Anita, I can upload the unicorns' corrected figures. Yeah they weren't correct! They werent in line or how to said it. So I have upload the corrected files to the mediafire. I feel needles to copy them again from photobucket.
I've only test printed them. My figures need correcting too sometimes. Your outlines match up very nicely, it is just the placement compared to the base tab that was slid off a few pixels. Otherwise very very good job! Better than my first anyways so Don't worry about it, when you have a whole set that is when it matters how your figures line up ;-) And I hope there is going to be *hint* somebody else then me to test print these for you *hint* Besides these are only your previews!
I think I didnt have a clue what am I take upon myself with doing that horse set. xD Okay it wouldnt be an easy set. At least for me. So I have drawn more horses than I planned...
I would like to show you the sketches, because I dont know how you like them. So I will have few questions. But first, lets see the 4 horses. First lets see the wild horse:
Question about it: Do you like that running pose? Or do you prefer a kickink pose for it?
Second one, the knight horse:
Third one, is the pack horse, my sis said that you guys would happy to get one pack horse, so:
It is a gypsy wanner. I love those horses. Question:-> Notice that the other side of his face wouldnt appear, his mane hide it. Is it a problem? I thought it would looks cute. :3 And the last one is the Palomino a normal steed... or how to call it. so:
Okay the most important question: Is there any horse beetween them which would be useless? Because you guys dont need them, for example: the palomino, I wont do the lineart of it, and nor the coloring. So please tell it if you dont need them,and of course pls tell me which one is the useless?
squirmydad: True, I put in "dropbox" as a search term and I've been able to fix some of the dead image links associated with dropbox.

squirmydad: I'm continually working to fix that and make all of the goodies accessible.

squirmydad: You always tell new members how much stuff there is here, but you really have to dive to find it, and some of it is hidden or broken.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...
Jan 25, 2020 6:24:04 GMT -9
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: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

shep: Ah, I see. Good to know.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.
Jan 22, 2020 13:52:08 GMT -9
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...
