Finally! New foldings! Well, i owed it. I've been promosing new photos of the models I was working on, but i always finished them with no time to get some photos of them. So, well, here it is. My western dragon, folded from a 90 cm paper. Its terrible to start folding with that size of paper, but in the final steps is really rewarding.
How you doin'? You've been seeing a lot of me this last month, right? Lots of legendaries on the site as well...
So... Another trio done ^^
Giratina is OLD, Palkia was buillt in november and I finnished Dialga no more than a month ago. Now the credits: Giratina is Brandon's, he also helped me edit Dialga. edited Palkia and I did some touch ups on it. Palkia is the hardest one to be built, but the other two ain't that easier They look really nice together. I like the poses, Giratina's is a simple one, with Dialga I did what I could moving the head, the tail, but Palkia's is my favorite among them, POdragon did an amazing edit posing it.
The trouble parts: there are no hard parts per say on them, but some parts can offer some trouble, such as Dialga's eyebrows, the fan, the nails ain't a hoot to place. Palkia's arms are complex and joining them with the shouders won't be easy, not hard either. You'll need to be patient with the stripes too, they may offer some trouble, hence the fact that the numbers are in a way so you can apply presure from the inside. Giratina is the easiest of them, but the golden details won't be nice to new builders. Also, keep in mind that there MUST be a stripe of paper inside the wings, not a long one, just in the beggining, where it connects with the golden part, because the wings will fall.
what you see here is not only the evolution tree of Guilmon it shows also my own evolution after three years of papercrafting
from Guilmon, one of my first papercrafts, where i used the lined sheets and doubled-tape to Gigimon what i build still with scored folding lines over Jyarimon, where i tested out the shaded crafting method up to Growlmon, a really great model what i build for the digipapermon blog
and finally Wargrowlmon, my very own model (and the biggest *bleh* ) what i build from ground base (except the 3d mesh) and when i look at this picture i defenitly know why i'm doing this is there something cooler then this?
and for all Digimon fans yeah, i know it's not the whole tree but i didn't said that i'm done here
previous version to the yellow/green one. that one is virtually the same, only with simplified neck and forelegs area, completely different head with longer "horns", and, which is the most remarkable difference, although originating from a very similar base, the newer one is turned upside down in relation to this one. because of the open ridge on the back of this version, i decided to use a double tissue foil green on both sides, to decrease the negative effect of the unwanted visibility of the "wrong" side of the square. the newer one has a way easier-to-shape tail than this version.
