Pumpkin Loli

Here's something Halloweeny for Halloween, which is today!!  Well, it's a loli, with pumpkins!!  Yeah!!  You may download the papercraft file from the author's site with this direct link:

I'll be using the thin 20 lbs printer paper again.  It doesn't look too difficult, except maybe those boots.

Glico Snack Loli

Today I shall build this papercraft model of this some kind of loli with antennae/bat wings/devil tail/pitchfork/cookie, sitting on top of a Glico's pastry snack of some sort.  If you are fluent in Japanese, you might be able to find out more about this character from the author's webpage here:  According to Google Translate, she seems to be some kind of "tooth decay bacterial," so yeah!!

Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated

Here's another one from Phineas and Ferb.  Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated!  The residence of Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, where the -inators live!  And it's also an evil jingle!  Yeah!!

First, I tried to search for perhaps some other person has already designed a 3D model of it.  And hey, there is!  Here's a 3D model of Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. for Google Sketchup:

Well, the above 3D model has too many little details here and there that overcomplicate a potentially rather simple papercraft model.  So instead, I shall design my own 3D model with simplicity in mind.  Well, the 3D geometry is pretty simple indeed.  I spent much more time working on the textures on this project, mainly because I haven't really had much experience messing with textures.

Ducky Momo

By special request, and because I love the character too, here are my design and construction of the papercraft model of Ducky Momo, from Phineas and Ferb.

So yeah!  Ducky Momo!!

Perry the Platypus - Part 03

Here's the fedora that Perry the Platypus Agent P wears.  I am still not quite satisfied with the 3D shape I've decided for it, so I am probably gonna do some more editing before exporting it to Pepakura.

Perry the Platypus - Part 02

Now I shall physically build the Perry the Platypus model which I have designed previously.

I'll be using 65lb cardstock paper this time.  It's thick enough that I better score it, and I still often have to fix the ink with markers, and then I get the markers' ink on my fingers and mixed with glues, and suddenly dirty glue bits show up everywhere!  Oh noes!  I need to develop a better system, maybe not marker up everything so much!

Perry the Platyplus - Part 01

This is Perry the Platypus, from the cartoon Phineas and Ferb.  He's a platypus.  He doesn't do much, except that adorable teeth grinding thing and stopping the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz from something with some kind of inator.  Yeah!!

Since I have not found any publicly available Perry the Platypus papercraft model, I shall make one of my own, using Metasequoia.  I still don't know what a lot of tools in Metasequoia do or how to use them, but I think I know enough basics now to start making something not too detailed.

Here I was working through this Metasequoia tutorial about building a candlestick:

And then it's done!  And for some added fun, I messed around with applying textures into cylinder-based shapes.
