as you may know shit take long and after the first poor and lazy try of a papercraft tutorial i'm proudly present the second better version, where i'm gonna explain every single step what i do when i'm build a papermodel out of a 3d mesh
after meanwhile three years of papercrafting i still can say, it is one of the best hobbys i've ever had and with this little series i wanna show you that it is not that hard as it looks but also that there is much more work behind as you may know
About the Tutorial: This tutorial is ground basic specially the first part, where i am explaining the first steps in Metasequoia what means, it counts for beginner and also professional 3d desinger the only thing what you should have is some knowledge in papercrafting where you start what is possible to build and what not
for this tutorial i'm using Metasequoia, a great freeware 3d editor what you can download "here" if you are allready using an other programm like 3dsmax, Lightwave or Blender, you can of course use one of these it doesn't matter because the method is the same
i also use Photoshop but every other image editor should do the same the only thing what you have to purchase is the "Pepakura Desinger" because only the Viewer is free
About the 3d models: there are a lot of model sources out there google is your best friend here but i will NOT explain how to receive or where you can download 3d game models that is not the meaning of this tutorial and here starts also the illegal part why? to recieve 3d meshes out of games, you have mostly break or rip them and you can imagine, the most developer don't really pleased by that
but as i said, google is your best friend here
ok then, enough talking let's start with the first picture where Metasequoia is allready installed
Here is a picture of some of my current Digimon Papercraft projects !!! There are some more but here are the "biggest" ones !! This picture doesn't mean that my next Digimon Papercrafts will be them, it could be any other random Digimon, but you can be sure that at at least one of them will be available pretty soon !!
Which one of those four would you like to be released first ?
Bonjoir tout le monde !!!
Voici une image de quelques uns de mes projets Papercraftique Digimon en cours !! Il y en a encore quelques autres que ceux-là mais ici ce sont les "plus gros" !! Cette image ne signifie absolument pas que mes prochains papercrafts seront ces Digimon là, il pourrait s'agir de n'importe quel autre Digimon, mais vous pouvez être sûrs que au moins l'un d'entre eux sera dispo très prochainement !:
Lequel d'entre ces quatre-là aimeriez vous voir dispo en premier ?
Here comes a brand new papercraft and this time it's Drimogemon, a Champion Level Digimon !! The model is easy to build and some alternative textures are available in the rar archive !! On this photo, you can see the "NiseDrimogemon's Mustache" texture !! I know, NiseDrimogemon's drills are purple but well, I made this mustache only for fun !

Today I want to launch a new Digimon Papercraft concept, I'll simply turn some Digimon's Helmet into Papercraft so everyone can use it as cosplay or decoration and I want to begin with the Royal Knights !! If you like the idea, I'll may be also try to do it for the weapons ! Now it's time to introduce the first Papercraft of this serie : Dukemon's Helmet !! The model is not difficult at all !
I really hope you like this new concept and if you like it, let me know if you want to see more like this *o*
See you later for new Papercrafts !!
Bien le bonjoir tout le monde !!
Aujourd'hui j'aimerais lancer un nouveau concept de Papercrafts Digimon, je vais tout simplement transformer en Papercrafts quelque casques portés par les Digimon pour que tout le monde puisse les utiliser pour le cosplay ou la déco et j'aimerais commencer par les "Royal Knights" !! Si vous aimez cette idée, je m'essaierais peut-être aux armes !! Il est maintenant temps de vous présenter le premier modèle de cette série: le casque de Dukemon !! Ce modèle n'est absolument pas difficile !
This was created in 3dsmax using the pod model extracted from EVE. It was very difficult to get massfx to work with the thousands of pods. I'm currently working on filling the gaps, but it's very difficult to do without locking up max. This was the one lucky stock render I was able to get out of it before it froze. Will do more when I can. I'd like to do something with a sun above it, something like the dominion wallpaper. Looking for a collaborator to help with the 2d.
So, we have : - a total of 2600 tri for the house (Too much tri...) - a 128*128 png texture for the house (85 Kb) - a 2048*2048 png texture for the lightmap (2700 Kb) - a cool shader allowing you to put two different UVs on the same object (lightmap+diffuse on the house) - a really awesome reflective/refractive shader for the water - some post effect on the camera (vignette+color correction+antialiasing)
What else ? - no skybox yet - not completly optimized (2600 tri for the house WTF!) - need ground and trees behind the house - need character+animation+scripts...
