Princess Ruto Assembled

Alright! Princess Ruto is complete! For those of you who don't recognize her, Ruto is the daughter of King Zora, making her princess of... well, the Zora's, in the game Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You can read more about her here, since I'm too lazy to type out a summary.
The final build comes out to about ~11.5" (~29cm) tall, and stands well enough on her own without a base (thought I'll probably end up adding one just for consistency).

This model had a bit of a catch to it. I really didn't want to make Ruto this big, but I wanted her to be to scale to my builds of ninjatoes' Link and Zelda models. However, my builds are scaled up since I wasn't very good at building when I started. Thus, this model will NOT be to scale to ninjatoes' Link and Zelda models when printed at 100%. For a proportional build to ninjatoes' originally scaled models, you need to print this at 56% scale.

Anyways, she's pretty simple. I decided to take a few liberties with the model, since the actual geometry made her look quite... "well-endowed", and since they're supposed to be children... well you get the idea. No instructions, but PePaKuRa PDO file is included to make up for the lack thereof.

I can't figure out Ruto.

Which part, specifically? Ruto is actually one of my better laid-out models...

Rawr this is hard! 3XX

I only just pieced together her head, and it's pretty ugly. (My fault, not yours)

I'm not sure what methods I'm supposed to use (Tape, glue, etc.), or what order to assemble her to make it easier for me to get my fingers in there. ::(

And I don't know what pieces go where. 3::

Ooh! Thank you! I didn't notice the mountain and valleys difference. ::3

Do you have a 360 view of Ruto? I don't know how her back pieces go together and would greatly benefit from a couple more angles. ::3

the PePaKuRa model file (PDO) is included (see the description of the 'Assembled' deviation), read the "PePaKuRa" section of this to see how to use it: [link]

Sigh... I was able to download it all, I just can't seem to get it into the viewer (RAR file, not PDO) and I can't find a good thing to open the RAR file. (Bitzipper free offer has expired! Buy now!)

So I guess I'm just going to have to wing it and see how it turns out. Thank you for trying though. ::3

try winrar, or 7zip, or winzip, there are hundreds of programs that can open rar files

:wow: Holy sh... I've never seen anything like this before.

Link and Ruto look like you just yanked them out of the game. Amazing work! :D
