    Yep, I actually started this because I knew it would start snowing soon in my area, and I needed something to hold me off while I couldn't paint my custom TF's.
    Yeah, that's actually a scaled up and simplified version of papercrafting. Unfortunately, I don't have a 3D model to work by, which you can send to a program that "unfolds" the model into simpler shapes, so I have to make mine by scratch.
    Well hey there Zerocounter, nice to see I made someone get their first post here :D  I can't wait to see your Soundwave, I always geek out about that kinda stuff :p  And just as a note for everyone, this project has not been abandoned, but is temporarily on hold until my exams are finished. Holidays and Test prep bring my productivity to a halt. :(

    Dont worry, I´m a papercrafer, and I know that it takes a lot of time, even using 3d modeling software. Take it at the normal way it cames, and when you see it finished, you´ll remember this post XD.
    Saluteee

    I don't want to sound braggy, but mine might be better if I could finish it. Mine is quite a bit more complex than that one, and I want to get the proportions almost perfect. Of course, it's easier said than done, since my only 3D model for this guy is, well, in my head. I'm doing this all by scratch, and at the moment, I'm having quite a few problems. I had to replace my scanner which resized files to a certain resolution, and my new one doesn't do that, so I'm trying to manually find out the right percentage to scale to, as well as work out the ab and pelvis transformation. Pile all that on top of the rest of my life and this project just sort of keeps taking a backseat. I want to get this done badly, and I purposely put the papers right on top of my laptop so everyday I sit down and see them, I just don't have the time unfortunately.
