Seega Game Sets

Yep! Beautiful! (And you win the annual award for most appropriate use of Papyrus!) :smile:


#12

Wow they came out great.


#14

OMG that’s just incredible. I struggle getting a freaking half inch deer to cut so their legs don’t snap off when breathing on them and you make this. :clap:


#15

Papyrus is one of those typefaces that is easy (and fun) to hate on it because it is so overused and abused. (Compliments for your restraint.) There is a whole community of designers and art directors sharing the passion along with Comic Sans and Trajan. :wink:


#16

Beautiful! I only tackled monopoly and dominos but they didn’t look anywhere near as nice!


#17

Fantastic in both concept and execution! even the Coral Snakeish Border!


#18

This is gorgeous! As as a past student of anything ancient Egyptian, I think you captured the spirit and essence of Egyptian design quite nicely. I ‘get it’. I’ve become a big fan of hand coloring stuff, too…it’s rather therapeutic. What a beautiful looking game!


#19

I didn’t see a Discourse badge for that, darnit!

Haha! You’ll notice there are no half inch deer in any of the projects I’ve posted… :wink: It’s all about knowing your limitations and focusing on the things you know you CAN do!

I will admit to having experienced a moment of extreme satisfaction when I realized this project I’d spent weeks laboring over had actually resulted in the perfect opportunity to make you look at a photo of Papyrus. :smiling_imp:

I actually really like it, except for the uneven edges. I find the shapes of the letters themselves very appealing. I guess I just have common tastes. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I still want to do a Monopoly set – it’s been nagging at me ever since I got the GF, but I haven’t felt ready to tackle it yet!

Haha, I had the same thought! But then, coral snakes are beautiful, so it told me I was on the right track. :wink:

Oh, yay, that’s so good to hear! And yes, the coloring is really a lot of fun – I had been missing my nightly coloring wind-down, since finishing the colored vase I did. The gel pens worked a lot better on the draftboard, though. I’m hoping the markers I ordered will be a better solution for future wood and plywood projects. :slight_smile:


#20

Absolutely hilarious. :smiley:


#21

Beautiful


#22

Said “WOW” audibly when I opened this post. Amazing work!!!


#23

This looks awesome, even with the use of Papyrus.


#24

Yeah…coloring on draft board. Didn’t take me long to realize that some colors just sink right in. I’ve never tried any gel pens…they might be next on my to-buy list. Are they water soluble or what? Mostly, I’ve been using oil-based pens.


#25

Typefaces spelled the demise of calligraphy fonts, By hand you can have a hundred variations of each letter, so every use of that style would be a bit different, now especially for such irregular fonts there is a very limited set of fonts and even fewer that are distinctive that folks are drawn to. So you have a choice of either such a common look that only a typeface nerd would be able to tell you what it was, or distinctive but everyone would know it. Personally I would favor distinctive and let the “font nazis” rant.


#26

Water-based. This is the set I have: https://www.colorit.com/products/96-gel-pen-bundle

They work great on the draftboard, they cover well, and create a bit of 3D effect that I like. :slight_smile:


#27

Thank you!


#28

So beautiful!


#29

That looks fantastic! The coloring is great! And I love how you say “a simple drawer.” I haven’t even made a nice box, let alone a drawer!


#30

Your kung fu is strong!


#31

Haha! Okay, I’ll admit, it did take a little bit of trial and error to get everything the way I wanted it. :wink:
