Avian Defender - a by Destro2k Avian Defender - a by Destro2k
as i started this model
i knew it will be hard and it will take long
longer as anything else before
but seriously, i never thought that it will took
over seven months to finish

and not seven months of lazyness, like the editing and unfolding process
seven months (4-5 hours quite daily) of pure hard work
seven months of anger, sadness, depression, distressing, love, fun and joy :w00t:

i took quite everything into this wonderfull piece
i tested out some new techniques of building
gain a lot of new experience and discovered some new crafting skills

i build into the night, rebuild the 3D model to get the stabilizators (ok, not that hard but cool technique)
and figured out how i can get a 3D effect with clear coat
what looks just cool :dance:
like this special edition artbook from CD's or DVD's

and I think I can say without inordinateness
this is my personal masterpiece :squee:

when i look at it, it was worth every freaking second
and that's it all about
building something out of nothing
with your hands
what you can be proud of
i trust me
i'm fucking proud of it :iconvictorydanceplz:
i get a huge smile everytime i came home and see it
my friends meanwhile think, i'm totally nuts because i spend so much time for it
but there mouth was falling down as they saw it :D

i just love this stuff :D
and i love :iconhaikai13: haikai13 that for, that he made this possible for me :heart: :cuddle:
that's why i don't understand why some people just release the pdo's
i mean
why I'M doing this
because I want the model

i mean it's awesome to see that other people are building your stuff
Renamon, Wargrowlmon, Yoshi, the Dead Space Marker, the Clap-Trap
you know i love you all that for
but please
you can build it after i did :D :heart:

ok, now to that what you get
with download this model
you get freaking piece of insanity
with a difficult level from 12 of 10
yeah i know
*that is not working*
but let me tell you
it is hard
really hard
hard as fu*k

so take a look at the building process gallery first
if you really want to start it

but now seriously

file description:
the file contains as always three pdo files
one with texture and folding lines
one with texture and without folding lines
and one white version with folding lines

so you need the Pepakura Viewer what you can get "here"

all three pdo's are protected
so you can't edit the sheets in the designer
it has some reasons why i did it this time
i also doesn't includes the original texture

model description:
the model comes on 100 pages with over 700 pieces and is 60cm tall and 1000cm width

to download the model
click on the download link over the
"more like this" thumbs on the right side
you can thank dA for, that i can't write the direct link anymore

some word to the bloggers

you have the permission to use my photos
this model is a Deviantart only download
so do not upload this model somewhere else
and the most important thing

also because it'S a collaboration
you have to give :iconhaikai13: haikai13 some credits too

and like always

this model is free and should it be
so let it be!

and trust me, i search for my stuff ;)

feel also free to write a critique :)

if you still have any questions
ask me anytime :w00t:
also at my facebook Profiles
or ;P

This is really beatifull work to look at. Really proves your papercrafting skills. Seems that all glued parts are placet with great care to place them as correct as possible.
The bird is leaning backward a bit. It is quite vissible from side look. I donť know if it is because of your editing to make it stand stable, issues during the work or it was in model itself, but it feels bit unpleasant to me.
I know it can make one mad, but you also could cot out the gold chain. (I mean cut out the black paper around it... not sure how big the bird is, but it could be improvement)
When I see this, I wonder how would this look standing just on his feet, or flying on that wings. (hanging model) That would be maybe even more worth boulding for me.

I'm impressed that you were able to finish this. Two months with the frost dragon were enough for me. But I finished it as well, I know how good you must feel now. It was really worth the time.
What do you think?

3 out of 3 deviants thought this was fair.

Talking about papercrafts models by Destro2k is synonymous of talking about quality and wonder. And if we speak of titanic work, this handiwork really exceeded all previous.
Not only for the fact of being an original and very complex model, but also because of editing the 3D model is very good, I mean, this editing work must be insane with that amount of triangles.
Regarding printing, the colors of the textures are very striking and faithful to the 3D model and the glossy finish gives it a touch of a real figure collection. The assembly technique is impeccable, with great attention to detail plus it's thought to build in an ordered and sequential manner (this is where the fruits of the great edition of the 3D model are).
My only observation would be that this model could be built with the smoothing method and just make fold lines where necessary, to make the model look more organic and less polygonal, in the end, the stabilizers would help maintain the shape that the model should have.
What is the best of all this masterpiece? Without hesitation, the step by step of the process and tips when assembling parts. This experience is invaluable and Destro2k has always been kind enough to share it.

Once a wise papercrafter said:
"Good papercrafter isn't one who only amazes, but the one who shows the way to amaze "

Congratulations Destro2k this is a job that you must be more than proud of it :thumbsup:.

This is astonishing. Your interpretation and intention to detail is really something. I certainly think it's worth all the blood sweat and tears O_O
