Hi, I design world of fantasy under voiced title "Book of races". Long time I upgrade my work. This time I have question to you about chainmail. I would like to draw the agreed on outline only. What do you have tips and advice? On attachment my work in progress.

I think they both could be effective. I worry about tons of detail for a 28mm figure - when scaled down and printed on an inkjet printer, the 2nd chainmail effect (the one on the right) might get muddy and dark, whereas the one on the left might look just fine. It would be interesting to see some test prints!

Now I can see everything! mproteau (Paper Realms) is probably right about the test printing and I bet a middle ground solution will be best. I was thinking about onemonk figures and sanity studios but I think your style is closest to okumarts. Maybe you could take a look at some of mail and see if you can adapt it to suit you.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
Actually, I think both styles look good, I did a test print, with a scaled photograph of some actual Chain mail as comparison.. This was taken at about a two and a half foot distance from the figures, so this is pretty close to what you would see with them on a tabletop.

pavaro, I fixed the image link, so now people should be able to see the picture in the post..... Photobucket has been bothering me, they recently made some changes, including limiting upload size to 1024x768, where before I could upload full size pictures ( and with my camera I can get pictures up to 6000x4000 pixels).. I might need to search for a different picture hosting site.
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.

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.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oooh... I'm at 256 out of 1000 photos... so, I suppose at some point I'll fall over and look elsewhere... and have to fix up all my product listings! I'll use my space frugally.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I have all my photos on flickr, and have never paid anything...

Vermin King: I didn't realize Flickr accounts cost that much. Maybe I need to raid the Agence Eureka site and Esben Rasmussen photostream, too

cowboyleland: I think all the paper model stuff there can be found on this board anyway.

cowboyleland: In the old days the way to post pics here was through a service like Flickr. These days I have better uses for $8.99 and I am going to close my account www.flickr.com/photos/cowboyleland/ if you want to have a look B4 it is gone.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Also, a fine time to plug my Patreon :-P patreon.com/paperrealms ; I have a LOOOOT of cutfiles available for paper minis. It's all Silhouette compatible, and everything I make has a readme to cover any special considerations.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I currently use a v1 Cameo machine (they're on v4 now) and love it.
Apr 28, 2021 9:05:41 GMT -9
mproteau (Paper Realms): The Curio is interesting - it has a different carrier mechanism that enables embossing. Some folks like how it handles scoring more than the other machines (that perforate to make a 'score' line). I recommend the Portrait.
Apr 28, 2021 9:05:27 GMT -9
mproteau (Paper Realms): The CAMEO models are a bit pricier, and get you a wider feed, and multiple tool holders. Not essential features, but could be great depending on what else you want to do with your machine.

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - I actually still have my Silhouette SD and it's still working great. The Silhouette Portrait is very much like the old SD machine. A workhorse without a ton of extras, it can handle Letter/A4 papercrafting just fine.
