When you play classic games, do you find the sprites too... Flat? Wishing for a little more depth? Well, I'm afraid I can't do anything to your games, but at least now you can have your very own, 3D, tangible Mario sprite. All you need is a printer, paper, scissors, glue and a little experience.

Started off as some orthographic sketches to help me visualise what I thought Mario would look like in 3D, based off his sprites from the NES game Super Mario Bros. Modelled and textured in Blender, and then imported into Pepakura Designer to be unfolded as a net. I the testbuilt it and finalised the template.

The result of my build is shown! The head, feet and body are all separate, so it's pose able to a certain extent. The background is a large sheet of blue paper and some scaled up, printed out sprites.

The bottom left shows the other included versions. As well as classic Mario there's classic Luigi, Fire Mario and Donkey Kong Mario. Included in the download are .pdos and .pdfs for each version of the template and .jpg instructions.

Before building, make sure you have made a few simpler papercrafts first, otherwise you might find it difficult.Or you might be a natural, how the hell should I know?

here we go
Devimon in it's dark pride :evillaugh:

man, it was not easy, specially the fingers are tough
i tried to build the model with round shapes but for the fingers it doesn't work at all
(i'm also not really the professional at this technique ^^; )
but i'm very happy with the result
it's a really cool model and i wanna thank :iconz8-0: for letting me build this :)

you can download the model at

and the next awesome model is done
:iconvictorydanceplz: :hooray: :icondweebdanceplz: :iconcarameldansenplz: :happybounce: :squee:

that's the reason why i just love this shit so much :D
and i just knew it would be cool :dance:

as i saw this model for, well, meanwhile also over a year ago ^^;
i just had to ask :iconsanat49: sanat49 for it
and i'm very thankfull and proud that he spend his original mesh for a papercraft project :huggle:
Crock by sanat49
the cool thing about this model is, that it's an entry for the pre-DominanceWar V competition, where i'm also a huge fan of :la:
what made this model, not the first Dominance War Papercraft, but the first downloadable (ironic hint to an other crafter ;P ) and hopefully definetly not my last ;)
but that's up to the 3d designer ;)

ok now, back to the model
the last steps, where you have to combine all parts will be exhausting
specially for the big shoulder armor pieces
there is not many space for glue or failures so be patience
test it out first where you can attach the pieces

also you have to put some weight into the rear leg or maybe both
maybe you noticed also that i attach the model a bit displaced at the pedestal
i had to do this because of the weight ratio
it's a lot testing and trying
so don't hurry ;)

file description:
the file contains as always three pdo files
one with texture and folding lines
one with texture and without folding lines
and one white version with folding lines

so you need the Pepakura Viewer what you can get "here"

all three pdo's are not protected
so if you have the Designer, you can edit the sheets in the way you want :)

the original texture is NOT included

model description:
the model come on 27 pages with 290 pieces and is 30cm tall

the model is actually not hard but the mouth take a bit more work as i thought
also the first three rings of the arms
the skulls and bones of the pedestal are very small but it's up to you if you wanna build them
i removed the lower site of the pedestal, it is too big for one page
but just glue the whole thing at a blank sheet and you have the same effect ;)

difficult level is about 7/10
if you have any trouble, feel free to ask me or/and take a look at the "building process gallery" where i explain how this and that is working :)

to download the model
click on the download button on the right side
you can thank dA for, that i can't write the direct link anymore

some words to the bloggers

because this is a collab, you have to give credits to :iconsanat49: sanat49 too!
otherwise i can't allow it to write a blog entry

you have the permission to use my photos
you DON'T have the permission to use his renders ore screenshot of it
except he allow it

this model is a Deviantart only download
so do not upload this model somewhere else
and the most important thing

this model is free and should it be
so let it be!

and trust me, i search for my stuff ;)

feel also free to write a critique :)

after all this huge crafts i need always a easy model to come a bit down and i'm happy that i had the chance to build this one :meow:
new Digimon :dummy:

it's a very easy model
you start at the front and build to the back
the fins (except the the one at the back) are all flat and you just have to cut a little gap in the model to attach them :)

the stand is a simple selfmade

.... i like this blue, it's so intense :D

A papercraft of the new 5th generation dragon pokemon, Kibago for Paperpokes.

It's pretty easy to build. The only notable thing is that it needs a small weight, like a penny, in its tail so it can stand.

Thanks to Brandon :iconz8-0: for designing this.

Template available now on the Paperpokes site [link]

I have just Finished Charmander and therefore finished the original three. Bulbasaur was done a while back, i sent it for testbuilding, i don't know if he started it yet or not, it's up to him.

If :icondodoman75: wants, he can build charmander too, so he would have all three.

I'm pretty happy with how charmander turned out, i was hoping for worse.
