For the two next chapters, I think I had reached the highest point of the DF set production. So brace yourself, and get ready for the greatest load yet!

Are you going to be making more of these in the future and are you going show them off on here?

Not sure if I want to go back to this DF set, but there is some stuff I did after that I plan to get to and cover here.

The thing is once you evolve in the craft somehow, you want to stick to the "better" you just discovered, and not continue creating the old "inferior". However, new DF themed set using the new methods is something I can consider, as that is something I did multiple times, creating a set based of some older one, just of better quality (I did return to Dominions themed papercrafts using the layering techniques of the ToK set, for example).

But alas, as of late I wasn't much invested in new papercrafts (excluding ToK from time to time, but that was more 'cause of obligation), and I shifted to sewing and drawing. So currently I am not interested in making new papercrafts, but who knows. Maybe somewhere in the future, a new era will arise like, those I covered in the first post...

The chapters 3 and 4 clearly show the advance of your papercrafting techniques. We can see that the clothing of the figurines is becoming more realistic, with more detailed features and beautiful folds, wich is particularly true on the four druid colleagues of Ebeca and the five goblin wizards.

Moreover, the animals and other creatures are often betterly made than before, although the llamas and Aspdosusmat (the giant wolf) from chapter 1 were already pretty nice. Among them, I like the tiger, that gives off a lifelike feeling; the ant FB, with its abdomen that seems engraved with patterns; and the bunch of crundles, that are adequately shaped (it's not so evident that they are made of separate paper pieces, wich is indeed a good thing). But I also like Rulasm, that is crafted and drawn with precision, making for a quite respectable villain.

Lastly, I agree that the cave environment is the most original and complete of the story.

As you were progressively losing interest for ToK and since writing the tales wasn't bringing you as much joy before, finding a way to end them was probably the right thing to do. I think that the stories in wich their authors have put all their heart into are the most valuable ones, so that you concentrated your efforts on your -Drawings- seems judicious to me. But in spite of that, I consider you had produced some of your best +Papercrafts+ in the last chapters of Tok.

First off, Kdol is pretty cool with his robes that seem to be set on fire thanks to the subtle mix of red and gold on him. There are also those terrific cultists who appear very shadowy and disturbing with their strange, complex masks and clothing.

Then, the Golden Queen is a very unique character. I would say she is one of the most well-made creature of the story and it has a lot to do with her enveloping wings: they look real and kind of leathery, owing to the numerous grooves on them and their dense coloring, that also truly give them a golden sheen. Additionally, her very supple snakelike body and her cobra head allow her to strike highly menacing poses, wich is great.

Your subterranean tribal dwarves are, to end with, relatively simply designed, but just by adding colored masks on them, you gave them much character.

I've recently started reading the papercrafts thread and I'm enjoying it so far, but I feel kind of bad that I didn't post on it when it first started, I meant to but forgot and I ended up missing out.

This has been a fascinating thing and I'm glad you decided to share it with us, and I hope you find inspiration to make more of these things in the future.

Also it has inspired me to try to make my own thing, that hopefully I'll actually start on soon rather than think about starting it but do nothing instead.
