so yeah im back from chamonix (woop!) and have had an art exam thrown at my face continuing in till tommorrow aswell which im actually really enjoying and i got a bit bored when i came home so i started sketching a plush template for a wolf and heres the result! i havent tested it, yet alone ade a neat template but feel free to try to use it at the moment and let me know how it goes, any problems and i will make changes >.<
the little sketch in the corner is how i hope it to turn out :I
if you do use it you are not allowed to sell the plush as this is stealing my template if i dont give you permission, yes you can use it if you want to make things for people but just not for profit! when i finish the template ill probably make a pay to use one
Mini Contest Time! (See last paragraph) Here is my latest model. I have been hard at work since the start of the year trying to get this right and it's finally coming together! It took three different tries to get the scaling right. I'm on a bit of a time crunch to finish this one. Not only do I have to finish it down to the its waist, I have to putty it, sand it, and paint it. All of which needs to be done and dry by the end of February. The reason for this is because I hope to attend my first major con, Pensacon, and I hope to attend it as a Pokemon Trainer. I have tried this before with a lifesized Pikachu, but the stress of the event proved to be to much for AllSpark's paper body to handle and yes I did name my Pikachu after the AllSpark from Transformers . So I'm building this beast of a project out of posterboard. I'm hoping to build it down to its waist and sit him in my old laptop backpack. Wish me luck!
Also you may notice the broken pair of scissors. Those are the scissors that I have used for all of my papercraft projects and they broke the other day while working on this project. It's always a sad day in a papercrafters life when he breaks his trusty pair of scissors.
Now about the Mini Contest... The first watcher to answer the question in the title, "Who's that Pokemon?" will get a llama badge from yours truly. (note: If I've already given you a llama, I'll favorite five pics from your gallery.)
I want to be the very best, like no one ever was. To build them is my test! My childhood is my cause! I will travel across the web, searching far and wide to find each Pokemon and understand the art that's inside! PAPERMON!
Sorry I just had to...^^
So here he is in all of his cosplay worthy glory! I decided to give him the name Char Lee (like Bruce Lee, Jet Lee, and Rock Lee, but pronounced like Charlie). He also has the nickname of Charzilla. Currently, he is only built from the waist up, but after I retire him from cosplay in July I'll finish the rest of his body. Right now, he is set up in a way that his torso can slide into a back pack while his head and arms peak over my shoulder. The costume will hopefully give the impression that he is riding around in my backpack while I walk the con floor.
This project has been quite the undertaking. I wanted to learn from previous lifesized mistakes because the last Pokemon I built for cosplay purposes was all but destroyed after only one hour of floor time. So in order account for this, I build Charmeleon out of incredibly sturdy and light weight board.
Modifications: The original model can be found here jav-papercraft.blogspot.com/20… I blew up the template so that it's sized matched the parameters provided by the video game poke'dex. It took three tries to get it right because I had trouble accounting for the model's pose. The eyes, mouth, and teeth are all additions that I made. I hand made the tongue, hand painted the mouth, re-textured the eyes with a better image and laminated them, and re-purposed little cone-shape disposable cups as the teeth. Also, I made actual indention for the nostrils.
This is the first project of this kind that I have built and I am pretty please with how it turned out.
Murdoc was born in the dark waters of a kelp forest. His shifting bronze-green scales and stripes provide the perfect camouflage from predators and those curious explorers looking to prove the existence of mythological creatures!
From sculpting, to casting, to hand painting, Murdoc was made by my hand and is truly a one-of-a-kind sculpture with much love poured into his making. He's cast in resin and painted in pastel, acrylic and chameleon pigments. The chameleon pigment shifts from gold-green to bronze depending on the angle of light. I've added more examples of the special type of pigment above to give an idea of what it looks like under different lighting.
Figurine Info: *Scale/Size: 3" tall x 5.5" long *Sculpted in Sculpey, cast in a sturdy urethane resin. *Painted in the Spring of 2014. Chameleon pigments used. *All sculpting, casting, and special (hand painted) releases are done in the US, by the artist. *Edition: This is a one of a kind, hand painted cast. He does come with a signed COA. The number of Hippocamp which will be cast is currently undetermined. *Customs and blank casts are also available. More info on the Hippocamp is located on my online shop: wintersoulstudios.bigcartel.co…
