I swear, it's like whack-a-mole around here, on my papercraft shelf the moment! It's Digletts and Dugtrios a go-go!
Hopefully there aren't any more versions of this Pokémon for me to build ... is so, I might have to fob it off to one of my other team-mates, because I'm all Pokémole-d out! Thanks to Brandon for this model.
So anyway, this is another sneak-peek at another one of the 22 Pokédolls that will be released on Paperpokés shortly.
Here's the Completed-TB-PokéDoll list up to date:

This is a Pokemon model by Pixel-Kakashi that he graciously allowed me to unfold and build. It is GORGEOUS! Reasonably easy to make - the only problem I encountered was the giant leaf's stem attached to it's forehead collapsing on itself.
The second leaf I constructed I used "scaffolding" with off-cuts of card - as it was attached to the head before the body was constructed, and needed just a little support with the movement of the model in construction ... did that make sense?
Anyway, I honestly have very little knowledge of Pokemon characters post Generation I, but this one is so adorable! And totally worth building, so go to and make your own little Chikorita!
One more artwork based on amazing landscape from Guild Wars 2. This time I tried to paint a beautiful Kodan sanctuary from Frostgorge Sound. It was quite a challange though, so it may not be as good as I wish.
This one i made twice, one as my choice, and other because a friend liked too much the first. The image is from the first, and instead of making the support plataform, i used a magnet inside the left foot to make it stand. As you can see, it is balancing on top of a coin.
The template comes from paperpokes (www.pokemonpapercraft.net/) again!
Hitmonchan wasn't super easy but not hard either. As you can guess from the base it has a hard time standing on its own. This has little, if anything, to do with the size or pose but rather the design of the Pokemon itself. With such small feet relative to its height, it would have difficulty standing in just about any pose.
I came across a couple of pictures I made from my own papercraft collection. They're over a year old, so you can imagine I made a few new ones since then...
Unfortunately, I don't make that many papercrafts from other people anymore, because I just don't have that much spare time anymore. And the spare time that I have, I often spend on my own projects. ;o)
In fact, I think I'm at a point where my own models outnumber the ones from other designers that I built... ;o)
This time I decided to use some sort of old data storage device I found in the attic for a size comparison so you can work out the size for the papercraft model (if you still recognize what it is, that is...)
