"To arms!!"

Another small update, this time it's the arms! (and the neck, but that really needs some extra work yet... ;o)
The "ZaL method" worked out well last time, so I will use the same method on Twilight Link I think (the only difference being an extra part for the chainmail that this model has.
Stay tuned for more!

Shields up!

After working on the character itself for a while already, I decided to do some work on the Hylian Shield now.

The Twilight Princess design looks great, but it's much too detailed for the scale the paper model will be in.

To make it much easier to build, I edited the texture so that all the little ridges and bumps don't have to be seperate parts anymore.

It's not 100% perfect, but I think it will look pretty good on the paper model. ;o)

Stay tuned!

Small update

I was able to find some time again to work on Twilight Link, so here's a small update (can you even see it...? ;o)

How Link's flat stomach makes him look uninteresting...

The latest update on my papercraft TP Link project; I think I managed to retexture the top part of the tunic quite nicely, so that everything doesn't have to be a seperate part (which will make building it much easier at this scale ;o) but I still have to remodel the neck as you can see.

And I'm not quite happy with Link's waist (where the tunic meets his belt). It just looks really flat and uninteresting like this, so I think I will change it, to give the impression that the tunic is kinda "overflowing" the belt, like it should be.

So stay tuned! ;o)

Dresscode: layers

Of course I'm still working on TP hero Link! ;o)

But with making the instructions and video for the Advance Wars Yellow Comet Artillery, not a whole lot since last time.

For the bottom part of the tunic, I want to try to use a similar layered technique as on ZaL. Even though they're a little bit different, it should work nicely as well on TP hero Link I think.

Stay tuned!

Advance Wars Yellow Comet training video

I know, I know; I'm supposed to be working on TP hero Link... ;o)

And I am, but after already starting this Yellow Comet Artillery unit when I was making the instructions for Lulu's Moomba doll, I just had to finish it first:
Have fun building!

Star Trek U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205

Although this is a picture of my original hand drawn version of the U.S.S. Defiant, this post is actually about a retexture done by a certain person calling himself Bones McCoy.

A couple of years back, Bill Perry already did a redraw on my Defiant model, and now Bones has taken that version and edited the textures again!

I'm afraid I don't have a finished picture of it for you (hence the old one ;o) but here's the link if you want to check it out:

Have fun building!

Don't ask me what it is about Link's legs...?

Progress is slow as usual during the week, but there is progress!

And because many female papercrafters have told me there's "just something about Link's legs" (don't ask me what though... ;o) I felt obligated to show it. ;o)

Twilight Princess hero boots

In the 3D editing stage, it doesn't really matter which part you do first (in reality, I just jump back and forth whenever a particular part is getting frustrating to work on ;o)

When building the final papercraft model though, it's best to start with the feet and legs first so you can work out the balance in as early a stage as possible.

So I guess I'm just used to working from the bottom up. ;o)

Stay tuned!

Sometimes simpler is better

You know, with all the possible poses I've been thinking about for hero Link, I guess sometimes simpler is better. ;o)

Stay tuned!
