Thanks to Jim, I have my own project forum to post stuff into. (Thanks, Jim!) ;D
I really do not know what to do here besides post up more of the stuff I have been working on.
Since I am still very new at this, please let me know if you see anything that needs fixing. I tried to learn from the last ratman and lighten this one up a bit, as well as make the color variations more dynamic. I still have one last ratman I'd like to squeeze into the HORDE, but we'll see how that goes.
As you can see I played around with the gem in the chest trying to make it glow. I hope it turned out OK.
There is no pressure to do anything with your own board. I just do this so it's much easier for everyone to stay organized. When you feel compelled to do something, post away, when your tired of it, take a break, the board will be here until you request that I take it down.
I'm really impressed with your figure art ,and you seemed to have captured the right look quickly. It is an ever evolving thing though. I know I like to try new figures just to experiment with new design techniques.
Thanks for the encouragement. I hope I can continue to learn and improve. I really like the One Monk style. When I first found the figures on PaperMakeIt for Jim's Skeleton Pirates months ago I knew I must find more like it. I have been rejecting paper figures left an right because they did not hold a candle to Jim's standard.
I have a bunch of stuff inked from my first attempt at making paper figures. All of the ones so far are from that set. I also have a group of Men-at-arms, some Elves, Ogres, some wizards and the heroes of HeroQuest design. I also have a werewolf, and some GW night goblin types.
Once I run out of these, I hope to design some different critters with some of the stuff I have learned so far. I already have ideas, the problem is restraint. If I go ahead and draw them, I'll want to jump to those and leave the current set behind.
Great work. I'm unable to download the full res rat warrior from Photobucket. Can you check it out? Thanks.
Try it again. I was monkeying around with the files today. I just re-posted it as a PNG format. I discovered that Photobucket tends to over saturate everything if it is saved in a CMYK Color, so I just switched to RGB and saved in a different format to avoid confusion.

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

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!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
