Well then with Shadow i release the third model of my Sonic Series
Shadow is one of my favorite characters in the whole series he's that typical anti-hero "hey shadow, we need your help!" *fuck you i do what i want!!! ..... nah ok i do it, but not for you and you can still fuck yourself*
you know what i mean
even i'm really really happy with the result i'm not very pleased with the idea of a seperated head i glued some woodsticks into the top of the torso but even with them the head is wobbling and shacking arround also, what you see here are the only photos without a stabilization after a half day, i noticed that the head is bend down so i had to put again one of those pvc sticks into it and even with that, it is still moving at the moment, the model stand on my desk with two rulers on each side so that i can see the measure and if it still bending
i apologize for this, but because of the fur spikes, it was not possible for me to combine head and torso
this time i made no building process photos because the model itself is realtive easy (also those photos i made are not very useful ) the only tricky thing is how to combine the spikes to the head that's why i designed some pieces, that you have to wrap them arround the allready build spikes to combine them those pieces are mostly the biggest and have no tabs on both sides
to build the head itself start with the eyes and build the whole face including the ears then follow the order top center spike top left and right spike including the two pieces at page 30
second row center spike and add the combiners at page 36 second row left and right after that you need to close the head with the pieces at page 40
take your time here and think before you add this or that piece
the rest is simple you can build fists and shoes seperated start the torso form the feet, add the tail and attach the first backside sting then attache the second sting build the chest stings seperated (the whole page) and add it to the torso then close the torso on top and add the arms
then you can add fists ans shoes
adding the head to the torso well, as i said, i found a way but not the best but i think you can so it better and don't underestimate the size of the head it will be bigger as you think
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 package also includes the original texture and a few screenshots what i used specially for the fur
model description: the model comes on 41 pages with 206 pieces and is 50cm tall it stands without any weight in the legs i would count the difficult level this time at 7/10
Minor information! i don't prefere to download the sheets anymore the model isn't really stable and collapsed after a few weeks because of that i overhauled the 3d model and will build a new, more stable version of Shadow if you still want to download the sheets you can do that on the top right download button
some word to the bloggers
you have the permission to use my photos this model is a Deviantart only download so do not upload this model somewhere else and the most important thing
oh man, that took long but finally i can show you and share the final model of Tails
before you now download the model, print and start to build it without any background informations i have to warn you, building this model was just a pain is the ass and it was probably the hardest model i build so far and in my case that should mean something
even the editing was hell and meanwhile i know my job, but had i known that it would be that hard, i had edit the model much much more there are still a few issues in the mesh but no worries, i will explain everything in the building process shots.
i can't really say why it was so hard, there are not much pieces or rather, not more then other model i also cut the sheets in the best way i know, but to combine all the stuff, specially the wiskers, the chest and the tail pieces, was just ugh maybe because this time it was just something special the model is flying, the tail is quite the same size as the rest of the model and to find a working method to combine it with the torso took me a whole week but hey, it is working as you can see and that's part of the job, to find and solve issues of the own models
i also made a lot of photos this time, that you shouldn't have that much problems here
model description: the model will come on 37 pages with 265 pieces and is 45cm tall again, the model has a flying pose and will not stand anywhere it is very hard and has a lot of weird looking pieces
About The new wallpaper for Knuckles, to replace 2007 edition.
Description Well, seeing as I haven't submitted anything for a while, I figured I should show something. I was a bit sneaky during the making of the tutorial and on the sidelines ended up making this in a spur of the moment (I'lll fill you in on the lost file status in an upcoming journal).
I said before I was going to re-make some of the wallpapers and Knuckles was one of those. This here is the updated image, something I believe to be much better in quality and general appearance. I feel it's a big improvement over the original from 2007, which I believe looked very disjointed in it's parts, I also didn't like the original's facial structure-but I digress. I'm very happy with how this turned out, in lineart and shading. The ONLY little niggle I have is that back arm, I won't say why but knowing me, there could be an edit resulting sometime in the future if it continues to bother me, we'll worry about that later though.
I hope you agree this is an improvement over the original wallpaper
