Is papercraft as a hobby dying?
all hands-on hobbies are dying because of vidya and cheap chinese electronics
>>591283It's so depressing. I'm not against gaming but people need to find hobbies other than just sitting in front of a monitor 24/7.
>>591358Kerbal and minecraft is fine, and everything else in moderation, but I'm glad I've completely quit vidya myself, however I'm still fighting my addictive personality in other ways.
>>591172My children just got into it. Hopefully a new generation will pick up the speed. Also, thats a cool reaper. Happen to have a pdf?
>>591436All the links for it are dead, unfortunately.http://www.papercraftsquare.com/halloween-paper-model-lil-death-free-paper-toy-download.htmlI found this zombie head though. Maybe this will suffice for a while.http://www.papercraftsquare.com/halloween-paper-model-severed-zombie-head-free-download.html
>>591812thank you so much anon! Where were you able to find this?
>>591358Why? What is the special virtue of handling paper compared to staring at screens? People used to spend all day flipping paper around, you know, and that was actually the same activity of reading most of the time.
>>591172It will never die as long as paper exists. It has been around for centuries. Anyone, anywhere, anytime, is able to grab a piece of paper (or something resembling paper) and fold it to his/her liking. It's super accessible unlike other hobbies. The thing is that it's always been niche, and only a small percentage of people pick up on it and decide to make it a lifelong passion.
I just looked at the old site, and the pdf was still there under the image search.
>>591283Except Warhammer.Games Workshop's stock price has increased 1000% over the last ten years.
>>591172>591283 #A paper craft haven't been dying. It is what I am crafting today.People needs to use their hands.
>>591818Nothing, other anon is being a melodramatic teenager or an elderly youth hater.In reality there are health issues such as sight problems, addiction and sleep disruption to name three. But also in reality the gym has as many if not more well documented problems and life threatening health hazards, including addiction.Paper on the other hand is nice and safe... if you don't have trouble clotting or grow lemons.
>>592256Sale figures of the figurines are steadily dropping, GW lives off of whoring out their IPs
>>592295Ruskie gang represent m'duud
>>592295what did you use as a base for that?
>>591172no idea, just learned about it today, but you inspired me to try my first one with this design as it looks fairly simple, so if its of any concern your helping create new patrons
Well, things are only going to get worse every year until something is done about the endless stream of mindless apps and platforms that want nothing but your time. Today's 20 year olds and especially the next generation will have a tough time concentrating on anything, I'm sure of it. But hey, it was neat being able to look at a 5 year old thread.
>>591172I don't think its because people have lost interest in hobbies like these, as much as it is that people are lonely. Online vidya games and electronics allow you that social interaction with other people that hand-held hobbies don't offer unfortunately. If you took this medium and gave it the social advantage that vidya/internet has, and then removed it from vidya, you'd probably have more people doing hobbies like these instead of playing vidya.
It is kinda depressing how unimpressive my level of craft skills are when you can see the stuff a 3d printer can pop out
