Revolvrr papertoy

I have been busy… Not really with my papertoys

But this one is just so you don’t forget me:
Say hello to my little friend

Revolvrr is a papertoy that I made as a part of an other papertoy.

Nick Knite and Dolly Oblong advised me to share it with you. So here it is: it’s only a blank version because it just doesn’t need more.

The .ZIP file contains a .PDF
(You can use freeware like FilZip or 7zip to extract a .ZIP-file and read a .PDF with Acrobat or Foxit)

There was some room left on the template so I made a bullet for the Revolvrr πŸ˜€

Update #1: in 48 hours more than 500 downloads. Everybody needs protection. So don’t bring a scissor to a papertoy fight!
Update #2: in 6 days more than 1000 downloads. Throw your guns in the air.
Update #3: 12 days and 1400 downloads. To protect and serve…

Tip from Methuup da Funky One: Glue the curved piece of the cylinder in first, apply glue and push the 4 half moons with the tabs which form the top and bottom of the cylinder from the inside into place.

Update #3: the first Revolvrr customs are here:

How to do this?

The first you need is a piece of paper with a print/pattern on it. Try Google for a pattern.
You can buy paper with a print on it but you can also use a page from a comic/magazine/flyer.
After that you just print the blank template on it.

Oh no!!!

The first papertoy suicide? A sad way to end your birthday… how will this end…
And remember: Revolvrr’s don’t kill people, scissors do!

Lo Slungg

Finally I found some time to finish the templates from Lo Slungg. Sorry it took so long.

For the readers that don’t know Lo Slungg, here is a image:

And download the files for the WIP Lo Slungg template here:

The .ZIP file contains a .PDF
(You can use freeware like FilZip or 7zip to extract a .ZIP-file and read a .PDF with Acrobat or Foxit)

This is the first time I have an explanation page (the first page) with the templates. I couldn’t fit the explanation onto the templates, so don’t print the first page!.

Grumm by Methuup: Dizzzy Grumm and Oppp-art Grumm

Methuup da Funky One, a member of NPT has created a custom in an way that I forgot about:

So here the example of Methuup:
Methuup da Funky One Customs

Read more at NPT: Dizzzy Grumm Custom and Oppp-art Grumm Custom

Tips from Methuup himself:

Use Google and search for images with “Op-art” or “Optical-art”

I’ve done this also, but by printing the blank Grumm template on a comic or stationary paper.

The only sad thing is that there are no templates to download.

Drukk

About Drukk

Drukk animation, how it works

Drukk is a simple papertoy (easy to build, easy to customize) with moving parts (you could call it a paper automata).

It is very difficult to find designers who want to customize my first papertoy Grumm. I concluded that the model was to complex and perhaps is a 2 page model too intimidating for a designer. So I designed a model that is fun to build (you can press it’s head), easy to build (it fits all on one page), easy to design (design the head, and the rest will follow) and easy to customize (create moving arms, tongue, tails, eyes, ….)

So design your own Drukk, find out what I can do with Drukk in the Selfish Seriesor what other designers do in the Pusher Series 01

Selfish Series 01

Robbox by Marko Zubak

Marco Zubak was the first one who created a custom Drukk (thx for getting the ball rolling). He named his Drukk in the Pusher Series 1 Robbox

Dead Drukk by Scott Carrington

Scott Carrington aka Dr Shazam created something with a skull (I love skulls!!). This one is buried 6-feet deep: Dead Drukk.

This image is not doing justice, the two parts of Drukk are too nice not to show… you gotta see for yourself, build the bugger!

Foldskool Heroes: Batmobile

Marshall Alexander is, like me, one of the designers that are invited to contribute to the book made by Matt Hawkins (read more).

Batmobile Foldskool Promo

Batmobile Foldskool Promo

But why haven’t I written about him before? Well, Marshall didn’t have a blank template to customize!
When I started a forum topic on NicePaperToys about my todo-list Marshall wasn’t even on that list!

But Marshall decided that he had practiced enough and published 3 models in the Foldskool series.
I didn’t have the time to build or customize it at that time, but later I downloaded a template and was amazed at the skills used to create this template (it in one piece). And I needed to create a custom for this beautiful piece of paper-art!!

Perhaps the correct order would be, to first write something about Marshall, and then post the custom that I did, but what the heck. I have created a Foldskool Hero: and my Foldskool hero is the Batmobile. And customizing is more fun when you can do something extra with the model…

Batmobile Foldskool Heroes

I have modified the model a little and added some extra parts…. You still can make the model in one piece, but then the tires are very slim πŸ™‚

(Marshall had no objections with putting a download link on my page, and I’m a sucker for statistics πŸ™‚ )
(The .ZIP file (use freeware like FilZip or 7zip to extract a >ZIP) contains a .PDF (which you can read with Acrobat or Foxit ))

The artist series is small, but with some great designers:

“Cenobox Pin Cushion” created by Jason Harlan
and

“Yebomaycu” created by Marko Zubak

Urban papercraft: Jins Studio22

This is a strange entry in the Urban papercraft series:
jins studio22cool pet rangeland paper model and toy design

I normally would write about this project: you can adopt a papermodel for the right amount of cash. Especially the fact that you have to pay for a papermodel is something that I don’t like, but there is are free models, and a blank version…

Here is the free version in the download section

Here the examples:

and my personal favorite Nian:

and of course a blank template named P.I.Y.:

Urban papercraft: Jerom

One of the artist in the PaperToy book created by Matt Hawkins is Jerom.

Jerom is a French artist, which makes it very hard for me to follow his blog: it’s in French which I don’t speak….
But Google is nice to help me a little: translate Jerom’s blog.

Jerom uses his blog not only for papercraft (as I do: Flash and Papertoys), so here a link to separate the paperToy on the blog from the rest: papertoy.

Oke but why am I writing about Jerom? I “promised” to feature all the participating artists of the book by Matt Hawkins on my blog! But Jerom is also part of the Nice Paper Toys social network where I also can be found.

The first time I saw work from Jerom I noticed that the template he created where very simple, with cool designs.
For example:


But recently he started a experiment with Google Sketchup and Pepakura (read my tutorial about creating papermodels with these 2) which are very cool.

Technical I’m cheating: there are no download templates, or blank templates of these models (at the time of writing this post), but I’m guessing that there will be (in the nearby future).

There are 3 models which can be found here (or read the Nice Paper Toys post from Jerom).

And I’m only showing the coolest:
Diabolito
diabolito

Just check the rest on Jerom’s blog

Urban papercraft: PaperToys book Artists

Update #1: I have written a post about Jerom
Update #2: Read about Macula

I have written about the paperToys book from Matt Hawkins before: it’s a book about the most talented paperToy designers in the world!

(and I’m part of that group πŸ˜‰ )

Because the list is so impressive I should write about these people…..
And I already did that: a lot of these paperToy designers are part of my Urban papercraft series

But there are some where I will not write about: not because they are not talented, but they don’t meet the requirements for my definition of Urban Papercraft. So I hope I don’t offend someone, but this group of designers will be striked out (like this)
