PLEASE READ: if you want to post my tutorials outside deviantArt, just drop me a note asking for my permission. I'm going to allow you to do that, yes, but I'd like to know where my works are going to land If you have any question please let me know .. and .. I'd be glad to see your creation if you've found my tutorials helpful
TRADUCO IN ITALIANO, VISTO CHE EVIDENTEMENTE GLI ITALIANI NON SANNO L'INGLESE gradirei, qualora vogliate postare i miei tutorial su un blog/forum/community/qualcosa, che me lo facciate sapere. Non ci vuole nulla a lasciarmi una nota da qualche parte. Ovvio che vi darei il permesso, ma ci tengo a sapere dove i miei lavori vanno a finire. E' l'unica cosa che chiedo, e visto che metto a disposizione una risorsa, vorrei che fosse rispettata. Grazie!
I'm not sure if I should have described more there at the end... I guess I just want to encourage you all to discover some of it on your own. Once you get used to tweaking and experimenting and thinking a bit outside the box you'll be well on your way to being successful at fractaling.
Let me know if you need additional help... or anything actually.
I had some free time, and thought it would be helpful to make a "How-to" guide for those who don't know how to build paper dolls. If anyone has any questions, please don't be afraid to ask! Since it is a big picture, you may have to download it to see it clearly. The doll I built in this guide is Sherlock <333
Starting with a simple text page and adding layers and layers of finishes.
This is not intended for you to replicate, as you will undoubtedly have your own inspirations and aesthetic preferences, but I was interested in tracking my own process.
It is worth remembering that there will have to be a sequence in the media you apply. Ink (or watercolor paint) has to go first because it absorbs into raw paper. If you want to sketch with pencils or marker pen, you would need to do that next, because they don't adhere too well to acrylic glazes. Acrylic paint goes next, and last go oil-based media. You need to leave beeswax until pretty much the last step, although you can still apply oil pastels over it. Ink stamping can happen anytime up until you use an oil-based medium.
Tali was the first Mass Effect papercraft I ever made, and at the time a rather ambitious project considering I'd mostly just done N64 and Wii models before. But things just happened to work and it made a template, that thanks to some heavy simplification of the original 3D model, worked surprisingly well. After considering the ever shrinking list of ME characters I'd like to make, and looking at some of their 3D models, I ended up deciding to work on Tali again but in her new ME3 outfit.
For the first time I've used high resolution textures for a model, from Smarteck's HD replacements for the ME3 PC version ( social.bioware.com/forum/1/top… ) and some advice concerning them from DaiShiHUN (he knows why ). DaiShi has also produced several Mass Effect characters, scaled to mine so check out his gallery too! ( daishihun.deviantart.com/galle… )
The textures look great and I'm very happy how the overall build has turned out as well! It's certainly harder than the ME2 version so if you are new to papercrafting then I recommend you try that version first. Built between 10th-24th June.
Below you can find the links to download the resources so you can print and build your own version!

Here is my second tutorial! I have seen this type of bread in my local bakery each year throughout Spring time. I thought it was really attractive and perfect to make. I hope this gets someone inspired to make something this Easter. The part about braiding may be a little confusing, but I wanted to put SOMETHING just in case anyone doesn't know how to braid.
If you decide to make some Easter bread using my tutorial, send me a link! I would love to see it!

Keep a look out for my next tutorial! Here's a hint- it is also Easter themed
Yet another awesome model by my friend DaredevilBR [link] that I helped beta-test (kind of).
It is Tetra, the pirate girl from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Walker. She is also very tall - approximately 25cm including the base. And again quite an advance model, not for the light hearted or inexperienced.
The model is not quite complete, as she also had fruit of some sort - something similar to a Hyoi Pear - that I have yet to build. I'll probably get around to doing that later this month.
She is also holding a neat little dagger in her right hand, which unfortunately you can't see very well from this angle.
There were issues with her hands in the original template, but they have since been resolved, so you should be able to get the updated final template soon at: [link]
