Hi all, I've been doing papercrafts for a couple months now and I know the communities in China are still very much active, so I've been lurking there trying to find links to papercrafts or some I can buy from taobao and share for you. specifically anime
Here is an Anime papercraft community: https://tieba.baidu.com/f?kw=%E5%8A%A8%E6%BC%AB%E7%BA%B8%E6%A8%A1&ie=utf-8
And here are two baidu links, one to a collection and one for a single craft
Pass: st7u
Pass: vtzp
it's hard to try in 4chan so one day I'll set up a link with my collection
for now does anyone know how I can work from high-poly models to low-poly? I'd rather not used blender and i'm familiar with metasequoia, I found a craft of Haru in the community I linked above but there's no dl from what i can see, and I'm killing for some persona 5 models

The only thing I can think of is to try removing the background in photoshop or some other photo editor.
Since when has this become a link site for loosers like you to post your crap work on here. Freaking go cry on FB and Twitter for people to give you money. This is a TRADING thread. Either link your work to download, or BUZZ OFF
Don't be a jerk
Don't be a dook, sucking up to people that can't even do a decent texture file for a simple papercraft. The work sucks, and the post has nothing to do with this thread in particular. If he wants to get gree ad-time for his crappy work, then go post it on a different thread, and not here where we share scans and premium files of Miku etc. How's that for a jerk?
He >>590178 is right, mind the misspells, want to take up a spellchecker... but still. This isn't a free ad site, fuck this crap. Go advertise crap somewhere else. We don't need dorks like that here begging for cash for crappy shit.

F you and your shameless ad-shit. Nobody wants it. Learn to do it right first anyway, looks like crap. Go spam some other thread!!

does someone have this one?
the old link on pepakura gallery is down and i cant seem to find it anywhere

old link:

here you are.

I'm trying to find the template for this particular pop-up card design. It's from Cahier de Kirigami no. 8, but all I'm finding is this same pic over and over on Pinterest and broken download links to other issues of Cahier de Kirigami. Can anyone help me out?

Does Origami help getting a gf?

>I know the person I have a crush on is 9years younger than me who likes anime and is probably a comic con regular.
ok nonce

oragami can help you get a gf in two ways - most girls will appreciate handmade gifts of flowers and the like, but only if they are already attracted to you somewhat, and it can help you meet women because oragami is generally a more female orientated hobby.

no girl will date you for your oragami skills, but girls you meet at your unis oragami club will appreciate getting an oragami rose

I think there are three joys in origami. First is getting through a hard step, second is completing the model, and third one is giving it away to someone who would appreciate it

I have not yet had the chance to hand it to her, but I will keep you updated on the outcome.
In my opinion, it has to fit in the story. It's about the effort.

This guy on Deviantart made this and it makes me cringe on more than one level.
I just want to know, if I am not the only one that feels that way.

and i bought some black glitter for my commander

This guy got me started on poll about 2 years ago i found his v6 paper engine and built it. It didn't work so i tried again this time i discovered onlypaper.ru and used google translate to read his forum post then i wandered off and found a comment about 4chan and me who already browsed /fit/ /k/ /rk9/ and /b/ thought woah i can make paper guns. If you want more papercraft youtubers look up Tacoma1942 he does /k/ stuff but some cool /po/ stuff aswell

I want to do some papercraft stuff but all I have is printing paper and notebook and some pencils. Are there any cool things I can make? I'm thinking something touhou

Any other Batman fans here? We have tons of regular Batman papercrafts out there, but none of his crazy suits and gadgets. Is it possible for someone to create a craft of this Winter Batman from the upcoming comic Eternal Winter?
No :)

Besides, you got paid commissions for things like this, don't be a cheap-ass

a few while ago there was a thread were everyone was posting a bunch of old origami files that are dead now, here's a torrent file i made of what I could salvage from that thread and who ever was that one guy with 2 gigs of Russian paper tank instructions please repost your google drive link. Also my dsl internet is very slow for seeding.

thanks man, I'm still seeding as of now
The only origami there is "individual models" and "Tanteidan conventions". Other stuff is papercraft.
Can you give an idea what is origami as to the folders don’t specify. I appreciate the effort but don’t want to download a bunch of not origami stuff needlessly. Thanks
My apologies, most of it is paper craft and you should be able to see the files in the mega nz links
Ok cool. No need to apologize. Appreciate the info and the effort

Is it always a good idea to Score every fold? Or is it better to just score some parts where its supposed to fold and leave the other ones to make it look more neat?

I scored almost everything except the cylindrical/circular parts, but thinking about it back then, while I was working on Yuuka Kazami, most of her parts were not scored at all except her hands, her shoes, and her head
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Ohh, sorry, didn't read it right then. In any case, I think that this is the only pro way to go, not beding any other parts but the flaps.

Else, the other ways to make it look more professional is using better print paper, coloring the edges that are still visibly white, covering and reinforcing the papercraft with spray, reinforcing the inner parts with tape and filling it out (either crumbed-up paper or foam that doesn't expand), etc. I think there are some tips like that online with the folks building crafts in realtime and I also saw some tutorials in PDF form a few times.
Great, I'll try my best then

The only thing I could do is probably score the clearly complicated glue flaps then let the larger ones that doesn't have to bend at 90 degrees or over stay to keep the whole body rigid

Here's my Yuuka Kazami, probably my best craft yet
Looks very netly done already.

I didn't find any real links to neatly made papercrafts per-say, but I know this guy who makes videos of all his crafts and he does them pretty smooth:


I know I saw another file somewhere with tips and I am trying to find that one, else just try to google "how to" papercraft videos or something and you should be able to find some
This is the one I found. Not really much to go on picture-wise and not really detailed, but it does give some tips on what I already mentioned earlier.

Also, I know people ask a lot of questions about how to reinforce things and how to make things better in FB papercraft groups, so it may be good to try to ask people there for their tips and answers on what materials they actually use.

hello im looking to get in toy modeling/papercrafting but i have hard time dealing with the material... basicaly looking for easy to model material but also easy/bake or permanent,

also maybe flexible end product but not fragile so you can stretch it around...

also "fun" modelling technique where i dont need to sand, cut, to get precise shape? especially moving joints and articulate forms...
So, basically you want a anime figurine and not a papercraft? Because as the name says, it's made out of PAPER, so no paper-like material stretches and none of them are made so you don't "need to cut things", coz that's the whole point... so I got no idea why you even posted this...
I think he has tried paper and doesn't like it or can't handle it well, and is asking for an alternative.
I don't have one but it makes sense to post here to ask papercraft enthusiasts what they would consider a good alternative.
I think it's actually a stupid question, because what else can you get to make a papercraft if not paper? You can use really simple stencils and make it out of wire or steel and bend that, but good luck with the more complex desings. There just isn't anything like paper or cardboard that can bend as easily for these figurines, so it's pretty much a given that you use paper.

Now AFTER you make the papercraft, that is a whole 'nother story. You can reinforce it while building to make it stury, like filling it out, spraying it with all sorts of sprays to make it hard like rock, using glue and toilet paper for instance to glue over it and color it new and make it hard like gips, etc. etc. But the building process will always be paper.
you can use soda/beer cans. if you glue the paper to them and you have a lot of patience it can end up really good
I actually did see some wannabe papercrafts made out of packaging material, aka thinner cardboard. A Japanese deisgner makes papercraft figurines out of snack packaging, but as said, none of those are actually papercraft template and all of them are made free-hand. So, again, not a papercraft.

The only other one I saw made without paper/folding was a simple bulldog papercraft, made out of metal parts. So the guy wielded all the parts together and made a wannabe boxy dog out of it. Again, since it was metal, it's not a papercraft per say.

The only other option you got is to actually lear to do things from polymer clay and normal cray and to those PVC molds for figurines like the Japanese figurines they sell. Really fiddly work, and if you want to be precise it can be a bitch, but that is the only way you won't "bend" anything or "use paper".
