Despite lurking here and benefiting from everyone's generosity, I've been content to remain quiet on the forums. I have to come out of the shadows, though, and say that I'm really thankful for all of the imperfect people you've released! You've put out such a massive collection of figures - it's been a real treat that you've made them available.

WOW! These really pop on high quality paper. I always use simple photocopier paper (the munch all you want, I'll make more theory), but these look great. The colors are much brighter (I also only print on medium quality, my wife says I should try high quality).

Firstly I was surprised then break down... perhaps because that just spent couple of hours coloring just ONE Dragonslayer figurine - and it's A-side only (however, to be fair, B-side should take no longer than 30min after all colors, textures and spec. effects are "developed").
And now... now I'm reading that it might be printed on xero paper in draft quality... ouch... buuu...!

My wife says I should tell you that the Crazy Cat Lady is the only piece based on a real person who lives down the block from us, same hair, same funny eye... (and over a hundred cats at last count). I find it is a must-have piece for any town or village.
I want to say something, for what it's worth... You have a style that is unique, and fun. I have many of your figures and I think my favorite (non-bike) figures are the Templars you did with the Inked Adventure set.
Well, that was until I saw these! Your skills have really improved, but you still manage to hang onto your trademark style. You are doing a great job, and I appreciate the gift that you share with the rest of us...
(For what it's worth)....
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...

Good to know the link worked. It seems 4-Share has been losing some of my files latey.
Kil: Thanks for the kind words. I'm doing the original art about 50% larger than before and now have an actual Light Box (instead of my improvised contraption that barely worked) to do the backs with so they line up much better. And I suppose the more I draw, the more I learn.
Anyway, I released Imperfect Lumberjacks after I did the Oddities (they are listed under my Projects), and as of today I have the front ink done for a set I wanted to get out before the holidays, which may or may not happen, a set of Revellers, for villages engaged in holiday celebrations. It should include 4 new Musicians (in 2 different color schemes for a total of 8) and 8 Dancing Villagers (4 men and 4 women in 2 different color schemes for a total of 16). Whether or not they'll get done, I'm not sure yet.
Good to see your figures are doing well. With the addition of so many fine artists on the site, I can get back to doing odd background NPCs which is what Imperfect People were all about to begin with. ;D Dryw the Harper

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
