I am new to this forum after having found out about it through David Okum's products. Incredible amount of amazing miniatures here.
I am currently developing a fast-paced fantasy skirmish game called "Nadir's Dawn". I am currently playtesting the game and decided to go with 2D paper miniatures. Are there any artists interested in potentially working together with me? If you wish, I can give you a lot more information about the world background and the game! I am looking to create some out of the box characters and potentially a type of character creator, similar to this www.rpgnow.com/product/104222/Beasts-%26-Barbarians%3A-Hero-Construction-Set. We have some concept artwork in a certain direction, but are still open for feedback and ideas!
Thanks in advance, Nick from the Nadir's Dawn Team
We are currently only working on the board and rules design, since we are missing an interested character artist(s) for the paper miniatures. If you know of anyone who is interested in working with us, please let me know! Our game will be a fantasy skirmish game using many of the already existing races and classes, but there seems to be a lack of traditional "evil" races such as orcs in caster or rogue attire. We would also love to give some of the existing miniatures a new spotlight, since there are so many talented artists here.
Here are some of the first rough concepts we started for the character art, before we decided to go with paper miniatures.

Welcome to the forum Unfortunately I can't draw for toffee so I won't be any use to you, but there are some amazingly talented artists here who are forum members who might be able to help you out. I suppose they're just a bit shy......
Just roll the darn dice. Pixel pusher and proud of it.

When I wanted an artist to draw the dragon for my webpage and business card (see link) I looked around on Board Game Geek (see link) and deviant art (see link) until I found the artist with the right style. I felt like that type of a selection process saved me a lot of time.
Thanks a lot for the suggestions! Deviantart seems like a great place to look, but I'm never sure which artist and style could be suitable for paper miniatures. I haven't thought of boardgamegeek yet, I will definitely give it a shot!
Edit: Is that the artist that drew your cool dragon? He has some amazing stuff on his portfolio!

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

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!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
