This one didn't quite came out as I had hoped for, since closing the head just did not work for some reason. The double-sided leaves made it hard to fold the tabs and close it down properly. This little bugger is also one big mess of glue, but that's all my own fault.
This is Makar, a korok from The Legend of Zeld: The Wind Waker. I made this in the winter of 2009. The model is from Icthus7's site. If you like to build this papercraft, you can download it here: [link] I have more korok papercraft and they are coming soon.
Another awesome model by my friend DaredevilBR [link] that I helped beta-test.
It is Aryll, Link's little sister in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Walker. She is actually very tall - approximately 25cm including the base. She is quite an advance build, not for the light hearted or inexperienced.
Protip: give the base a extra support, by inserting a small cylinder (17mm high) - attached to the inside of the upper and lower platform - and place it just behind her position. This will give her a little added stability.
You will be able to get the template soon at: [link]
Zant from The Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess! This one is about 40cm tall and it took me a few evenings to build - it was a lot easier than my last build so it was a very relaxing job. The helmet is fully removable and only sits on his shoulders. You can download the template and the instructions here: nintendo-papercraft.com/usurpe…
As a thank you for Midna becoming a Daily Deviation, and as a 100th deviation special, here it is - my papercraft collection!
I’ve been papercrafting since late 2009/early 2010. The first model I ever tried building was a Mew, which I never ended up finishing. The first model I did finish though was No Face’s mask, which can be found in the picture! As you can see it looks a little rough, but hey, you have to start somewhere, right!
For anyone who’s ever thought of getting into papercraft, just go for it! Start off small and work your way up. You don’t get good at it overnight, but when you do gain some skills in the craft, you’ll be able to build anything and have wonderful sculptures afterwards!
There are over 100 papercrafts in the picture (I took a separate picture of each model on a black background and then compiled all of the pictures into 1, they’re not to scale with one another), most which have there own picture in my gallery, so check it out. There are some papercrafts that aren’t included in the photo, ones I’ve made for other people and no longer have, and other ones that are on display in my room and were too hard to take down. Every papercraft I’ve ever finished building is listed below, by category, including ones not included in the photo.

I hope this inspires some of you to try your hand at papercrafting! Thanks so much for all your support this far, and I hope you stick around for everything to come!
Yahoo! Finally I've managed to finish a papercraft! It's young Link from The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure! I've tried to make adult Link some time ago, but I've used wrong paper and glue. Plus it was a bit difficult, so I went for young Link this time.
The design is NOT mine: it's scanned from a japanese magazine. But if you want to build il too, follow this link: [link] and download it!
EDIT: I've added a third shot with Link standing on my Nintendo DS... Now It's clearer to understand its dimensions!
After Four Swords Link [link] I've built Wind Waker Link too! This is more difficult to build compared to the other one, but I really like the model! Guess I'll change the photo with a better one in the future...
If you want to build it too, download the template here [link]
Is it good? I thought that the orange background might suit it well. What do you think about my build? Except the glue. Took quite a long time too, i worked on it around 30 hours. i finished it today 1:05 AM. I stayed up all night to figure out how to make it stand, so i glued a battery in each foot. The build is half a meter tall, and the hand is surprisingly easy.
