Collaboration Number 5...

Sat Oct 19, 2013, 6:16 AM


-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
and
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 ^^; )

Good luck with the building, I am sure it will turn out very nice. What printer do you use? I have always problems with inkt going away when folding. I know a inkjet printer works the best.

i have a laser printer and i have the same problem
with sharp or scored edges, the color break and i have to recolor it
but it's not that bad :)

You do not see it indeed but it does take a lot of time, especially with small parts. Bigger models are finer to work with :P

but there is a limit
when i think about the huge pieces of the wings
too much ^^;

When you contacted me about making it into a papercraft piece I had my doubts, but then I saw the rest of your work and thought if anyone could make it work, it would be you!  I'm excited to hear that you're getting close to finishing it!
