Yeah, I think the foot is a little to small and the look is amplified by the fact that it doesn't sit right on the line. It's not so noticeable when it is built though.
I told myself I was going to just keep plugging through all of the minis I wanted to do for 2 factions and not backtrack, so when i learn a new lesson/technique on mini #10 I wouldn't have 9 minis to redo to make them look as good.
I'll post some pics of all the minis in the next day or so when I have them all built, it should make for a impressive little force.
What do you suggest to separate the mini parts more? Stronger outline or more contrasting colors? These first minis i have been struggling with the colors, trying to get enough contrast but keeping the earthy tones (since they are all woodland folk).
I struggle with contrast on print out as well and it's very tough when you spend time colouring and then on printout the colours are flat and you have to go back and recolour (I was very disappointed in my chimera on printout). I played around with the above (hopefully thats okay)to give you a bit of an example:
In gimp Basically Duplicated and turned layer to burn made new layer from visible set burn layer to hidden set new layer to overlay at 45% done.
I find burn does less washing out than just upping the contrast/brightness on the image (dodge is the other good one). I still like your original
edit: I'm happy to send you the xcf/psd file if you want to view it as layers?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
