Final Fantasy 7 papercraft Yuffie battle model WIP 4
I'm ending up remodelling more than you might think on such an "old" video game model, but I think in the long run, it will make the final paper model much nicer to build! ;o)
For example, the "textures" on Yuggie's torso aren't actually textures: every separate part and colour is really an individual piece/polygon!
It might have been better for the old PlayStation console, but for a papercraft model, it would mean a lot of extra parts that all need to be folded and glued together to make basically just a flat surface...! :o(
But I felt the final paper model would be much nicer without all those extra edges, so I combined all those individual colour pieces into a texture, which will basically look the same when built.
(and of course I had to attach Yuffie's arms to her body with some shoulders, because papercraft parts can't be floating in thin air like virtual, digital 3D parts can ;o)
