To commemorate Spyro's 20th anniversary, I'm opening a blog dedicated to Spyro papercrafts that I'll be posting over time. The first one is Spyro himself, feel free to edit the template if you need tohttps://spyro-papercraft.blogspot.com/
>>569358Cute. Are these your own creations?
this is perfection.
>>569361>>569362Thanks, yes I made them myself using the original ps1 models. I just released this one.
>>569358man i miss how old spyro looked. hate the redesign.
>>569358>>569448ALL the polygons?
>>569358>>569448this is absolutely amazing
>>569358Thank you for starting something like this, Spyro was may favorite franchise as a kid and ever since the PS2 era it's left a sour taste in my mouth. I might use this as motivation to start converting models into papercraft, what particular programs do you use, do you just import and deconstruct in pepkura designer or something else?
/po/ stuff often manages to impress me. Everyone should visit that forgotten little pocket of 4chan if you never have before.
>>569358meant to visit /pol/ but clicked /po/ by mistake and I'm unironically glad I did, printing this with the last of my color ink.Does anyone know of a good place to get a crash bandicoot printout in the same PS1 style?
Posting the PDF in this thread, so everyone can access it straighforwardly.
>>569644Lineless version. Again, for access, and the sake of posterity (many threads on here end up outliving its links). If you want the pepakura file too though, follow the links otherwise.And, hope OP doesn't mind, instructions:>1. Build the horns (parts 1-6) and set them aside.>2. Build the eyebrows (parts 8-10) and set them aside.>3. Build the eyes and the eyes support (parts 11-14) and set them aside.>4. Cut out the crest (parts 15 & 16) and set the pieces aside, do not glue them together yet.>5. For part 17, valley fold the tabs marked with an asterisk then glue the unmarked tabs under them. >6. Glue both crest pieces (parts 15 & 16) to the marked tabs of part 17.>7. Finish the head by adding parts 18-24.>8. Glue the previously built horns, eyes and eyebrows to the head.>9. Build parts 25-32 to create the front part of the body.>10. Build the wings (parts 33-38) using the same method as part 17, valley folding the marked tabs and gluing the unmarked ones under them.>11. Glue the wing membranes (parts 39-42) to the marked tabs of parts 33-38. Don't forget to cut out the extra.>12. Attach the finished pair of wings to part 26 and then add part 43.>13. Build the tail (parts 44-49).>14. Build part 50 & 51 and attach the front part of the body and the tail to them, using the leg holes to glue those hard to reach tabs.>15. Add the remaining parts (52-55) and close the model at one of the feet.
>>569454Use the big head mode on reignited. Looks more like og.
dude i love you
>>569358Holy shit it looks like the actual polygon model!
>>569358I don't know why but I've never found paprika as impressive as oregano. maybe since I was taught to cut and glue paper in school.
>>569358Thanks for continuing to update the blog! Spyro's still my favourite but the other models are great too, you do a really good job with them.
>>569358Finished Spyro! Really enjoyed making it and I'm very happy with how he turned out, thanks for the templates and instructions. Only bit I changed was making some extra support pieces of paper for the base of the wings, they were very droopy when held up by just their little tags. Other than that everything in the design was perfect.Looking forward to making the others on the site! :)
>>576874Glad you enjoyed it, you did a nice job!as for the blog, I'd like to upload more often but time is an issue right now, but i've got one that should be coming out soon. stay tuned.
>>569358OP is a fucking God among Anons.
>>569358>>576874Holy crap, this is genuinely awesome. Glad I visited today.
>>569358This is absolutely awesome.
>>569358Glad I finally clicked on that /po/ banner, very based OP
>>569358First time on /po/, this is awesome!
>>579017get comfy then, because you are gonna be seeing this thread for the next decade easily
this is beautiful.
>>569358badass thread OP
>>569358I am amazed at how this thread is 2 years old. I didn't think it'd still be up by now.
have no experience in papercraft and I want to make this. Wish me luck
>>569358See you guys in 2025
Hey guys I forgot to update this thread but be sure to check out the website, there are more than the ones shown here. Just released this one recently.Sorry for the bad picture, the room where I used to take them has changed and I'll need to retake all of them.Enjoy!
>>584316Oh hell yeah. Looks amazing, OP.
>>584316It's amazing how the low poly makes for perfect origami models. God I love Spyro.
Just released another one, this time it's Bianca.Oddly enough this is probably the hardest model so far, so be sure to fold most of the fold lines and feel free to resize the model if it's too small for you. I've also included optional 2D eyebrows if you want to keep the original size but they are too hard for you (shown on the picture).Have fun!
Now this is a delight. I'll have to look through these models more later, but I could always use a papercraft Spyro for my desk.
>>585318She looks awesome. Back to this thread two years on.
>>569358These are amazing! Could we request any characters? If so, I'd love a penguin from Frozen Altars, a cat wizard from Charmed Ridge and maybe Spyro's skateboard! :)
>>569358I came here purely to say HOLY SHIT OP these look fantastic! Keep it up!
I just finished mine today! My spyro turned out a bit wonky, but that's okay. Crystal dragon statue base is from here: https://www.deviantart.com/kna/art/Base-for-the-Crystal-Dragon-Statue-696146484?ga_submit_new=10%3A1501604924
>>587196He looks great, well done! Can't see any wonkyness at all.Just so you know: mine tended to tilt his head back after a while, I found that pinching the back of his upper-neck slightly and gently fixing it in place there with a bent paper clip for a few days makes his head stay upright and forward-facing when you take the paper clip away.Though mine is going on 18 months on the shelf now so maybe it's just the paper is starting to weaken.Congrats again on the excellent Spyro!
is anyone else struggling a ton with attaching the head to the neck? my pieces don't want to align and I've tried several times. This is amongst the last steps I do and it's frustrating when everything would be done, but I just can't assemble it together.
>>587196Looks great! Thanks for building it.>>586693I'm actually working on Azrael on his motorbike as a side project (since it's kind of more complicated) so that's close enough to a cat wizard. The penguin is one I'd also like to make but his heavy crest/hair is a problem that I don't want to deal with right now.>>587424Try glueing the neck piece tab by tab, starting with the ones that attach to piece 24. you can also use a toothpick or something bendable to reach the tabs from the inside if you need to. Good luck!
i just stumbled upon this, glad i did, so excuse the retarded quesiton. what material are you guys using for this? is it just regular paper?
>>569358Very nice work Anon, I'm a great Spyro fan, thank for those models. Keep up the good work
>>587196The shade of purple is impressively dead-on.
>>569358I've never seen a 3-year-old post before.That looks awesome.
>>584167I'll meet you there.
Could you make a version of this where the lid can be taken off and on, maybe with a bit of a lip? I would use it to store things
>>594445Brother this thread is 3 years old you're asking a shadow of a memory
Nice! This is great, anon :)
>>594548OP posted that basket this month.
>>569358>>569448Kino & amazing.
Is it possible to make dragons like Magnus, Nestor or Bubba from the remake?
>>594934Sure it is. Make them yourself. Or buy a commission. Lazy-asses
>>594445I'm sorry but I don't really do requests unless it's a character / object I wanna do as well. You could maybe try to glue a paper strip to the tabs of the lid to make it removable tho, like the picture.>>594934I personally think the redesigns of the reignited trilogy as a whole look like shit so I doubt I'll ever make anything from them. I do wanna make the five tribe leaders (Nestor, Titan, Cosmos, Bruno and Lateef) from the ps1 games eventually tho.Glad to see everyone is enjoying my papercrafts!
Can you do Spyro reignited anon? Or how do I pay for it? I don't see a patreon on your art websiteThank you
>>595347There are 100 of actual designers making commissions like that. Easy make. Just find them on their pages, Facebook, Deviantart, some have their own pages. Just contact them and pay them for making it. Don't beg on it here, this is literaly the slowest board in the world. You'll get nothing out of it.
>>595199>>594445>>587196>>585318>>584316>>576874>>569448>>569358These are brilliant. Thank you from a Spyrofag
Spyro a shit, A SHIT!
