How you doin'? You've been seeing a lot of me this last month, right? Lots of legendaries on the site as well...
So... Another trio done ^^
So... Another trio done ^^
Giratina is OLD, Palkia was buillt in november and I finnished Dialga no more than a month ago. Now the credits: Giratina is Brandon's, he also helped me edit Dialga. edited Palkia and I did some touch ups on it. Palkia is the hardest one to be built, but the other two ain't that easier They look really nice together. I like the poses, Giratina's is a simple one, with Dialga I did what I could moving the head, the tail, but Palkia's is my favorite among them, POdragon did an amazing edit posing it.
The trouble parts: there are no hard parts per say on them, but some parts can offer some trouble, such as Dialga's eyebrows, the fan, the nails ain't a hoot to place. Palkia's arms are complex and joining them with the shouders won't be easy, not hard either. You'll need to be patient with the stripes too, they may offer some trouble, hence the fact that the numbers are in a way so you can apply presure from the inside. Giratina is the easiest of them, but the golden details won't be nice to new builders. Also, keep in mind that there MUST be a stripe of paper inside the wings, not a long one, just in the beggining, where it connects with the golden part, because the wings will fall.
Have fun ^^
omg lol.Palkia looks like he is going FUCK U DIALGA I WILL PUNCH UR FACE! Dialga looks like Fuck whateva bro and giratina looks like he is going DUDE STOP FIGHTING GEEZ!
Oh forgot to add. Dialga has a Primal texture.
the feeeeeelz ;-;
the feeeeeelz ;-;
I've made a shiny Giratina. The wings can easily be supported with a popsicle stick, but when something's too hard, I often slack on it. That being the fact that the popsicle sticks are visible from the back. But after half a year there are no signs of wear and tear. I didn't stick the bangles on too well so they're :/
I really have the urge to make my own Palkia, but the number of pages needed to print it kinda scares me. And I know how to print two pages per sheet, it's just that it wouldn't look very mighty that way.
I unfolded that one. I wanted to keep it as scaled with Arceus as I could. It should be even bigger, since Palkia is bigger than Arceus, so I kept it in the same scale as the other legendaries, since they tend to be bigger.
your work is something you don't see everyday, and you neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed to teach me how to do this or I will not survive. Now even Mario cant satisfy me.
Thanks, but it's more common than you think.
There's a F.A.Q. at the site: www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2007… where you get the information on how to start. I strongly recomend building the easy ones (www.pokemonpapercraft.net/sear…, the pokemon ranch ones are very easy and a great start point: www.pokemonpapercraft.net/sear…. For this trio you'll need some experience, Palkia specialy.
They all look great and look even better together.
Awesome! My friend would really like these! Too bad that the legendary papercrafts are a pain to make or I would make them for him! Nice job! It must be hard to get the legendarys right!
Thanks. They ain't hard to make after you built a lot, I find it harder to edit than to build. If you want a less hard among these three, I'd suggest Giratina, but legendaries tend to be harder to get right, they have more details.
I've been building for a while, but I have shaky hands, and that makes it harder for me. Yeah, finer folds and such. I think that the 'hardest' papercraft that I've done is a two foot tall Twilight Princess Zelda model. =3 She was lots of fun to build!
I have huge fingers, this is a problem sometimes LOL I have built plenty of hard models, Hydreigon, the 1st Torterra, Link, Arceus, but after a while, they all seem to get easier. And, to be honest, I like these harder models, bigger chalenges.
I was doing an Enderdragon from Minecraft for a friend, and the neck spines are the size of... Well, the closest thing that I can think of it that it's about the size of the "A" button on a DS. >.< I was going "I got ittt.... I got ittt... *SQISH!* NUUUUUUUUUU!!!" I like the bigger models too. I think that the more times it takes the better. I get more enjoyment it. =3 Unless it's one of those evil models.
You tried tweezers on that neck part? I don't have the templates so I can't say if it could be used, but tweezers are a huge help on the smaller pieces.
Bigger models are cool, Mega Lucario, Arceus, Lugia, this trio, but I like smaller ones too, one of my favorites is my Squirtle, and it's about 6cm tall, there's a pic here: www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2012…
Actually, I think that would work. You can see in this picture:www.google.com/search?q=enderd… ... Crud. That's huge. Sorry, keep forgetting how to attach URLs to pics on here. ANYWAY! I think that would work. He just has teeny neck boxes, so you could hold it together with tweezers. Cool! Thanks!
If you mean the tiny details on the neck, the gray details, I'd glue them as I go while building the neck, in a way you'd be able to apply presure from the inside. Depending on how tiny they were, I'd make them 2D, since it wouldnt make such a difference from the 3D on a smaller model.
You did a very nice job on making them.
It must be a pain to make and alot of time too.
Thanks. They ain't a pain to make after you built some models but they ain't easy, and time consuming.
Welcome~ You are really good at these papercrafts, I saw your Arceus Papercraft and for a second I though it was a custom figure when I saw the thumbnail!
Hmm, well I will never be able too, I'm not the 'Papercraft' kind of person hehe though I wish to do one. And I bet they do take alot of time to make and finish, especally when it comes to detail and not making dents.
Thanks. It's not hard to get a good result, only takes experience. Papercraft is basicaly repetition, there are of course some new techniques, like the one used on the pokedex that was new to me, or some harder parts, but basicaly it stays on the obvious and expected.
Some are indeed time consuming, the ones on this pic really were, but Goomy and some other ones were really simple to build and took no more than a couple of hours. Take Arceus for an example, took me 2 full weekends, building about 10 - 12 hours a day, about 48h, only the build, editing took me more than that. The model for Goomy I got on october 29th at the morning, printed it on the middle of the afternoon and had it built around 10pm that same day, 3h tops to build, and it got released on the same day, if I'm not wrong. The more detailed, the harder to build and the more time consuming.
