This was originally a follow-up to the Life-size Mandragora. I printed out all three a few months ago, but just kept putting off the build. I figure one's enough for a proof of concept, and I improved the model in the testbuild. Pictured is a Korrigan; the release is all three: Mandragora, Korrigan, and Lycopodium. The idea was to make something a little more reasonably sized, for those who didn't want to waste half a printer cartridge on a single model. This is also the first of my models (I think) that's small enough to fit on a stand, so I took the opportunity to modify the classic Final Fantasy Papercraft stand. Credit to Black Mage 001 for the original design.
As for those Halloween related items I was planning on...well laziness and other projects dictate that they get tossed aside. Sorry if anyone was looking forward to them (honestly, was anyone? pfft, of course not).
In other news, Haywan, over at PapercraftMuseum.com has decided he wants a challenge, and apparently I'm the guy who's gonna deliver. Remember when I said don't hold your breath about seeing models like Odin here? Well, apparently that just sounded like "bring it on." So I'm going to be laying the model out for him over the next week or so, and he's going to take a crack at it and make some instructions (maybe even one of those fancy stop-time animation videos). I'd also like to thank him for posting everything from my blog in his museum (though I would advise everyone to avoid my earlier models, the ones I said were untested. Lord, what a mess.) Anyway, if you haven't checked out his site, it's an excellent repository.
(I tried to warn him, but whatever. Not my blood pressure on the line...)
Finally, I just made a massive breakthrough today with a model that...I can't even express how badly I want to see this thing sitting next to my TV. And I'd like to thank Gamerjoy for getting me moving in the right direction to expand my papercraft topic roster (ok, so a jump from one Final Fantasy to another isn't massive, but it's better than the same old nonsense every time.)
I'll just leave this here...
