-update 16.5.-
i'm happy as a child :dance:
today i tested something out and it works
and it looks just cool :D
i still can't say what it will be because it's not complete
but when the other side is doing what I asked for...
what i begged for
for the fans and for the papercrafters
....(and for me ^^; )
then you can expect something really great :iconvictorydanceplz:

by the way
at the moment i'm also working on a second version of Shadow
my first version is meanwhile completly collapsed
i overhauled the whole 3d mesh at the known issues and created some stabilizers at some points
also i merged the head and torso together
first i thought it would be a good idea
well, it wasn't a good idea
so back to the standart building
head first, arms, torso, legs, hands and feet seperated
like i did at Knuckles

it's a bit quiet arround here
but the dA page is meanwhile quite unuseable for mobile phones
even they always say "we improved this and that"
specially the journal is totally messed up trough this stash writer......thing
so i'm not very active at the moment
what not mean i'm away ;)

that's for this point
then i want to thank all of the new watcher who are following me here
i hope you like what you see :w00t:

then what's next
after the last half year building the avian defender
i'm doing a little brake from creating new crafts and build some smaller ones
but it's allready tickle me
i found a lot new models what i really want to build
also i have a little project running what i don't want to explain right now
because i don't know if it's even working

i have to explore first some new areas of modeling
XNALara should say something to a few people
it's quite cool and the model selection is overwhelming
so i have to stop myself everytime that i don't start 100 models at the same time ^^;
but i found a few models which are absolutly worth to build
not only i like them
it's long overdue that someone is doing it :D

the other project is
well, it's not really a collaboration
it's a bit more as that
the only problem is, that i recieved a model in Autodesk Maya from them
and i didn't found a way yet to convert that model into something i can use
i don't want to tell you more about that because i don't know if i can continue here when they don't want to convert it for me

well, nothing more left to say :)

-update- 4.1.2014
well, first of all
happy new year everybody :w00t:
long time (again) not here :blushes:
but i'm not dead
as you saw, i uploaded a few new progress photos of the Avian Defender
*gosh* this project slowly becomes insane
and i am too :D
after quite three months now the lower torso is done
the first arm, the daggers (after a re-build), the shoulder armor and
i throwed a wing away
yes, you read correctly
if you don't follow me on my facebook page or profile
i build meanwhile one of the wings
but it was quite impossible to complete it, the wing was so instable that i also had to re-build the 3d mesh here
but this time it will work ;)
i'm really excited when this model is finished
i defenitly need a really simple model after that :D

since two years
i had a model on my computer what was waiting to build
more or less because of lazyness i didn't finished that
what you will see in the next weeks
but now it's time to release this beast

The Avian Defender from :iconhaikai13: haikai13

Avian Defender by haikai13
is the biggest and most complex model what i build so far
60cm tall, 96 pages minimum and over 670 pieces
and without any regrets it will be my personal masterpiece
allready at the 3d editing process, i put all my knowledge of papercrafting into it
quite every edge is recolored with markers in different colors and mixtures
what you allready saw is just the beginning of a huge project with a lot of specials
i'm so happy that i can finally build that model
even it's just for me (no worries, i will release the sheets, but i have my doubts that someone will build it too ^^; )

hey there :)
it seems to be that dA changed something with the url's
the result is that the links of the downloads, what i write in the descriptions don't work
but that doesn't mean you are not able to download the pdo and sheets
just press the download button on the right side and you can still get them :)

i'll will fix that in the next hours
also i'm gonna upload a new model what i was working on the last weeks
so stay tuned :w00t:

the 10th of march....... :confused:
merry x-mas and a happy new year by the way :blushes:

yeah, it's been a very long time since my last journal
and some of you may ask, what happend with me in the last months
(except that i uploaded pictures of my crafts)
well actually nothing, i lived and enjoyed my life
but i neglected deviantart and the stuff here completely
i had to anser a lot of people, write some thanks, give some llamas and have to appollogize by a lot people for beeing not here
specially for those which are in my groups
but dA is meanwhile "just" a plattform for me where i can upload my models and stay the rest of the time idle
that doens't mean that i'm not happy about every comment that i receive
i read everything, i just had to answer ^^;

so i hope you can forgive me, when i'm not answer instantly at this or that
about my groups?
well to be honest, i have no clue
i really like them but i'm also tired about them
tired to write everytime, why i decline this or that, why this has been not accepted and so on
i guess a few which also have groups, know what i mean

hm.. stupid situation now
how can i now make a turn from this to a overview of the last year ^^;
let's talk about what's coming
i still will build my models, of course and i have tons of models in the back what i want to build
but as every hobby, it's a matter of time
so be excited, i have the feeling that there will come some really cool things
i don't write about special models, because i can't say on my own, which i finish or not
it has something to do where the flow goes ;)
but i can show you the ones what i finished with a little resume of the last year
(got it ;P )

Devimon and Growlmon:
Devimon by Destro2k Growlmon by Destro2k
two models what i build as testbuilder for
Devimon is cool but Growlmon was my favorite
meanwhile the family tree is quite done
and guess what, the next evolution is coming ;)

The BigSister:
BioShock 2 - Bigsister - a by Destro2k
still the most complex model i've build
three months of work pure building time but it was worth :)

The Lich:
The Lich - a by Destro2k
2012 was also the year of the collaborations
The Lich was one of them
over the year i had to repear the model not only one time
but meanwhile it stand as a tree on my desk and i'm happy that i finished this really cool model from :iconfirstkeeper: FirstKeeper

Warlord Crock:
Crock - a by Destro2k
same counts for Crock, which i recieved from :iconsanat49: sanat49

Dolphmon by Destro2k
also a work for the blog
i was very happy about it, because i had no model at that point and sometimes you just need something simple to come down :)

The Sinanju Project:
MSN-06 Sinanju SD by Destro2k
this one was something really heavy and the biggest project of the last year
yes, even bigger as the big sister
to figure out, how to export the pdf into jpg without any scale distortion, recoloring all the sheets and build it took me more then four months with a lot of setbacks
but i'm proud that i managed it
it is a real cool model :)
specially when you see it with the rifle and the axe ;)

The Marker:
Dead Space Marker Desktop Statue by Destro2k
funny fact, as simpler the model, as more popular it is
i'm always faszinated how much response i receive about that model
i'm happy that the people like it :)

Knuckles the Echidna - a by Destro2k
the first model of a series (meanwhile i finished allready Tails too)
the reaction of this model blowed me away :faint:
and i'm still overwhelmed by all the reactions

Gomamon and the Tutorials:
Gomamon by Destro2k Papercraft Tutorial Part 1 of 6 by Destro2k
with Gomanon and the Tutorial series i finished the year
and completed something what i always said
a tutorial from the 3d mesh, over the first steps within to the final papercraft
i hope this will bring a lot more people into this cool hooby :w00t:

if you now ask, what's about XLR8, Tails and Echo Echo
i finished them after the 5th of November, so you will see them again, next year :)
what not mean that i will not post anything until that :D
i'll try to stay more active here in the next time

cu then arround :)
