Someone suggested this before, and it's not a bad idea at all.Coloring my projects is the real hurdle that holds me up, and the aspect I'm least talented at. I'll provide Black and White Line art in fine miniature form and you color it to your liking, hopefully sharing your results here, so we can submit them to the horde
I appreciate any work you do coloring, please take credit for your work and add your name to models base so people outside of this thread will know.

From what I can tell, you and I don't seem to see our work for what it is.
We compare ourselves to others like Tommygun, Dave Okum, Adam Steele, Labrat... I could go on and on...
Maybe instead of comparing your work to Adam Steele's, you need to compare your work to Adam Souza's!
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that your stuff and your talent isn't as good as his. I am NOT saying that at all. As a matter of fact, I like some of your stuff MUCH better than some of his stuff.
I was thinking of this the other day. Imagine if EVERYONE's stuff looked the same. Sure, it would be awesome to have all figures blend together with the same style... but then again diversity is cool in it's own right. Imagine the Mona Lisa done in the style of Andy Warhol... (how's THAT for an example!!)
I like some stuff that looks very realistic, but I also like big honking robots... and super heroes. If we were limited to just one kind of figure, one style, look at what we'd be missing.
As far as using crayons, I have been working for MONTHS to complete my undead set of figures that I am releasing with Inked Adventures. I have tried SEVERAL computer programs only to have EACH one have it's share of problems. Billiam Babble suggested that I do what I knew... So I broke out the magic markers. In short, the set is being reviewed and prepared for release.
See, if you try to be someone else, or do things like someone else, you stop being yourself. Your artwork suffers. As a result, the forum and all the people here suffer, because they lose out on your work.
We don't need more "wanabe clones." We need more Adam Souza's, and dare I say, more David Wears here doing what they can and enjoying it.
Sure you are no David Okum, and I for one am GLAD! Afterall, he is a brilliant designer, but I never downloaded any M.A.D.'s that he designed!
(I am sure that I will need to read this a few times myself when I feel put down by my work. )
So, there you have it... Putting away my pom-poms, and climbing down off my soapbox.
for what it's worth...
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
Thank you for the positive reinforcement Kiladecus ;D
I know what you mean, there is soo much great work done here, and a big part of it's strength is diversity.
Imnntt, I love the coloring your did.
The bones really pop, and the colored tribal is something I hadn't even considered. The orange border was a great choice, as it compliments the flames well. The shading and glare on the back of the head were nice touches as well. Thank you for contributing your talent.

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016
Mar 22, 2020 18:40:25 GMT -9
Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.

Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...
Mar 22, 2020 17:06:54 GMT -9
ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.
Mar 22, 2020 8:19:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it

lightning: and yet you are able to post here @vermin king?

Vermin King: Panic -- when you've been sick during a pandemic and have to self quarantine, and then wake up to no cable or internet
Mar 21, 2020 3:48:57 GMT -9
Parduz: ... and some upper lip mods? Perhaps?
Mar 20, 2020 14:44:52 GMT -9
marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.

Vermin King: I feel like an idiot. Didn't realize that Vanessa (Deadpool) was Inara Serra until last night. Duh
