Arcbeetle from the anime Medabots turned into papercraft!
I know I should have uploaded this a few days ago, but I couldn't make a really fast build. Anyway, there aren't many difficult pieces, just maybe a difficulty with the balance, but it depends on what glue you use.
My Gun Nose ( or Gun "Knows") model kit was waiting for me when I came home from the long drive from college. Once we had gotten settled I began to assemble him. I'm pretty impressed with the kit over all. I didn't need to glue anything together, only need to add some black paint in a few places. And the articulation is awesome! Plus you can change the eyes to make different expressions.
Right now Gunnose is going to be Bee's new body till the D-Arts Metabee comes out next month.
This is mainly a tribute to my Medabots figures Metabee and Rokusho. And since it's been a year since I've drawn Rokusho, I thought it would be a good time to draw him in something. When you think about them, Metabee and Rokusho kinda keep a balence: Bee being the Hot-bloodedone, and Rokusho keeping a cool head at times of stress. And I'm glad I have them
One day last week after looking at Fanfics, and other Medabots pics on Deviant Art, I was looking at HoplessRomantic's "Brass the Watermelon" we were talking about how Metabee and Brass should get together. Then I began thinking" What if Brass got fed up with always being on the side lines and got an extra ninja body, and began fighting bad guys and such. Mainly to impress Metabee. But Metabee becomes "Eva"s biggest fan, and ignoring Brass and not connecting the dots that they are the same person. I want to do this as a fan comic. When I drew this I want to make Brass' ninja body Eva look a bit like Oceana. Also she was inspired by Priss' and Linna's hard suits fro BGC.
Medabots, Metabee and Brass belong to Rin Horuma and Bee train Bubblegum Crisis belongs to AIC Eva belongs to me
man, it was not easy, specially the fingers are tough i tried to build the model with round shapes but for the fingers it doesn't work at all (i'm also not really the professional at this technique ) but i'm very happy with the result it's a really cool model and i wanna thank for letting me build this
by uploading this files i can say i feel happy, proud and honored happy that i finished it, of course but proud and honored, that i had the chance to build it
with this model i finished my first collaboration with an other dA member
ok, i know you all wanna download as fast as possible the model sheets, but i write this anyway, because it means a lot to me.
in the center of 2010 i started to ask some 3d artists about their models and if they would share it for a papercraft project.
i recieved a lot rejections but Griphinator was the first who agreed and send me the mesh of his Spidertank
so give him a big hand too
well, i had a lot of problems in the last part of the year and it took a bit longer, more that i expected but finally i...... we can bring you this
and i guess, not even Griph expected that rotating system of the top
But this model has also another important background for me not only it's a very cool mecha design and a reference for upcoming collaborations i hope it's a wakeup call for other 3d artists, that there are freaks out there with a lot of skill, who would love to take your visions into reality
ok, but now to the model with downloading this file, you get three pdo's
one with folding lines and texture (lined) one with folding lines but without texture (white label) and one without folding lines but with texture (lineless)
so you need as always the Pepakura Viewer which you can download here
the lineless version is hard, specialy when you reduce the objectivity of the cut lines
i printed the sheets with 20% objectivity and it was not easy
the pdo's are not protected, so you can still change the size with the Pepakura Desinger
because it's an OC of Griph you will NOT get texture this time
the model comes on 12 pages with 68 pieces
some word to the bloggers
ok, normaly i'm mister nice guy but this is important for me because this is a collab, you have to give credits to Griph too! otherwise i can't allow it to write a blog entry
you have the permission to use my photos you DON'T have the permission to use the renders of Griph except he write it here in the comments ore you ask him about it
this model is a Deviantart only download so do not upload this model somewhere else and the most important thing
this model is free and should it be so let it be!
to download the model click on the download button on the right side you can thank dA for, that i can't write the direct link anymore
and trust me, i search for my stuff
if you wanna write a critique feel free but don't critique the model itself
