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

cowboyleland: Thanks to squirmydad for continuing to make the forgotten cool stuff easy to find.

Vermin King: Got to see Jeff Beck at one of those. Pretty cool. Only time I saw Adrian Belew was at a club gig in KC. Now, I am trying to get Mom up and running on Pandora for old country music. It's her first smart phone

Vermin King: I think I have it going now, Barbara Streisand hasn't come up on Willie Nelson in over 48 hours. Back when I was in Cleveland, a disc jockey was formerly with Peter Frampton's band. He set up club gigs for folks

senkosmos: I'm a fan of every artist you mentioned, particularly Jeff Beck (Beck, Boggart & Appice being among my top 3 heavy blues albums, I'ts certainly a pity that Pandora is given you such a hard time to listen to Belew

Vermin King: I then did another search and started a new Adrian Belew station. It did have 'Artist Only', but the Thumbs Playlist would only go to eight songs. If I added a song, it deleted another. I think I now have it fixed. Didn't have that problem with others
Jun 11, 2021 14:41:41 GMT -9
Vermin King: Back to Pandora. I doubt that there are many Adrian Belew fans here, but on Pandora he is jinxed. I deleted the radio station since it did not offer 'Artist Only' mode, and the Adrian Belew Radio Thumbs Playlist never existed.

Vermin King: Rant over ... almost. I'm sure I will be back on this later
Jun 7, 2021 16:40:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: And Tom Petty is on every station, including Willie Nelson. I like Tom Petty's songs, but not to where I have collected his station, and he certainly doesn't fit on the Jeff Beck station.
Jun 7, 2021 16:39:44 GMT -9
Vermin King: And why does the David Bowie station play America and John Denver? Aargh
Jun 7, 2021 16:36:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: I totally do not understand Pandora any more. I changed phones and when I logged into Pandora, my stations were basically wiped clean. Adrian Belew used to have Adrian Belew, King Crimson, Zappa, etc. Now it has only played one true Adrian Belew song

squirmydad: Last year the schools did drive-thru graduations. No overtime, not authorized this year.
May 17, 2021 7:25:26 GMT -9
cowboyleland: Canada is up to 50% (eligible) vaccinated but we are still not reopening schools. My kid probably won't get a grad at all.
May 17, 2021 6:38:27 GMT -9
Vermin King: Oo, doggies! I hope you get overtime
May 17, 2021 4:22:28 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm setting up staging and sound systems, running the grad, then striking and rolling to the next one. I'm pretty tired and still have one more week of these. An end of year concerts.
May 15, 2021 21:07:38 GMT -9
squirmydad: Returning to normal means that for me I'm working every graduation (x27) that the schools and programs are doing this spring, each graduation being on the schools site, sometimes 2 or 3 in the same day.
May 15, 2021 21:06:05 GMT -9
Vermin King: I guess returning to normal is causing things to be very quiet here lately

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.

cowboyleland: I thought they got rid of all their free accounts, but it looks like they re-thought that policy.
Apr 30, 2021 5:06:00 GMT -9
rag: mproteau - The plan is Worldworks' Titan Control. They have the cutfiles but the marks are in the old format - we'll see how it goes.
