Here is my design of papercraft model of Meap, from the cartoon Phineas and Ferb.

Here is the design, based on this reference picture.  I'm not sure how to model the mouth part in 3D, so this is what I have so far.

Toiley the Toilet Paper

First, it may be helpful to have seen this episode of Phineas and Ferb.

Now, the backstory:  In a dialogue with a friend who is currently working on building the Perry the Platypus papercraft model, she spoke of having completed the fedora and having it rested on a roll of toilet paper.  And then I proposed that she should call it "Toiley the Toilet Paper."  And thus the idea is born!  Yeah!!

Presenting my very own Toiley the Toilet Paper, on a roll of toilet paper that is very thin and almost out of toilet paper!

Candace Flynn

Here is my papercraft design of Candace Flynn, from the cartoon Phineas and Ferb.

I am using this reference picture as, well, reference, mainly for the body proportions.  Anyway, I still don't like how the crossed arms turned out, so I'll probably revise them later some day, but who knows when that'll be.

Mabinogi - Imp

First, a little backstory:  You might recall my previous blog post about how there was that Mabinogi tool which is okay at viewing but totally unreliable at transforming Mabinogi's 3D data (.frm, .pmg, etc.) into a more accessible format (.3ds).  Sometimes it works; most of the time, it gives shit output.  Well, I have assumed the tool has bugs in the transformation algorithm and given up on trying to make papercraft models straight from the game's 3D data, which brings us to the following good news...

Good news, everyone!  I have come upon this other tool pmgプチツールず, which has a functionality to take as input a .frm and a .pmg, and produce as output a .mqo, for editing with Metasequoia, and hey that's what I have been using!  Moreover, in this format, I can also apply the textures directly from the game, and thus get the exact 3D model straight from Mabinogi!

Well, now that I can do that, there are a few things from Mabinogi that I got interested to consider exporting to a workable papercraft model.  One of them is the imp.  Imps are cool.  Banner Imps are even more awesome.

Here's a video of an imp beating an imp in Mabinogi.  Sorry, this is the most close-up video of an imp I could find.  Also, it kinda shows how stupid Mabinogi is.
