New homepage for Drukk, Selfish Series and Pusher Series

For the more observed reader of my blog might have noticed a extra menu item: Drukk and as the title of this post suggest it’s the new home of Drukk, the Selfish Series and the Pusher Series.

So for my rss readers I have a little image:

New homepage for Drukk, Selfish Series and Pusher Series

New homepage for Drukk, Selfish Series and Pusher Series

On this page you can find two series…. one is the Selfish Series and the other is the Pusher Series.

The Selfish Series is designed by me, and they are created to show you what is possible with Drukk (it’s not only easy to create a custom-skin but also easy to customize!)
The Pusher Series (Designers on Drukks) is a slot-series….
???wtf is that???
Every Pusher Series has 6 slots, when all slots are filled I will start with a new Selfish Series and open the next Pusher Series.

Do you want to participate in Pusher Series 1, this is still possible: get the blank Drukk template and start designing.
Four slots are already filled by other designers: Marko Zubak with Robbox, Marshall Alexander with Nukk, Nick Knite (SIZZA) with Speed racurr and Scott Carrington aka Dr Shazam with Dead Drukk.

But if you’re not that creative this page is also for you! Both series can be download there, so happy building…

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

Pusher 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!

Custom papertoy: Flowerr Kidd

Another custom (this is the first time I do this and probably the last) for Wilson the Robot from Eric Wiryanata.

This is a reaction to the custom Eric did (Zombie Grumm).
I explained in my previous post (Custom papertoy: Wilsumm/) why there are two customs:

  1. usually I create a skin in Illustrator
  2. print/build the model
  3. see what needs improvements
  4. fix it in the Illustrator
  5. print/build the model again

This time I used the same method, but after I saw what improvements I needed to make (3), I also concluded that I’m creating the same “bad-ass” skin over-and-over again.
So I created a new skin (yes, a sweet pink one) and made the improvements in that model and rebuild that model.

Today I present: Flowerr Kidd

Flowerr Kidd: a custom by Matthijs Kamstra

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 model is not complex to build, but if you need some help building the basic Wilson visit the instruction page (at the bottom of the page), but my customization you just need to analyze my photos.

Wilson is a “doodle” (Eric used this to describe his model) papercraft and some parts don’t work like I want them to (the feet for example).
My version doesn’t need duct tape to keep him standing: just put some weight in the feet before you glue it shut! (I used dry rice, but nuts/bolds, dry sand, putty, coins, etc will work just fine)

Custom papertoy: Wilsumm

Eric Wiryanata has created a Grumm: a Zombie GrummZombie Grumm

I’m always grateful (I don’t always show it πŸ™ ) if someone takes the time to build a Grumm. But I know how much time it takes to create a custom, so that’s somewhat extra special!!!

So I try to repay that effort if I can (I’m not always inspired by papertoy from other designers), and the model of Eric is fun to build, and the way I create customs: also fun to customize!

I’m always experimenting with paper and new ways to build stuff, but not everything is used because my models (Grumm and Drukk) are very specific. When I saw Wilson the Robot I could do some of the stuff I never could on my own models.

Today I present: Wilsumm
Wilsumm: a custom by Matthijs Kamstra

This image needs some explanation:

  1. usually I create a skin in Illustrator
  2. print/build the model
  3. see what needs improvements
  4. fix it in the Illustrator
  5. print/build the model again

This time I used the same method, but after I saw what improvements I needed to make (3), I also concluded that I’m creating the same “bad-ass” skin over-and-over again.
So I created a new skin (yes, I made 2 customs for Wilson) and made the improvements in that model and rebuild that model.
The image that you see here is really a w.i.p. model, but the improvements are done in the download link.
(send me a good photo of Wilsumm, and I will replace this image with the one you send me, with your name, website, etc πŸ™‚ )

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
and me:

Drukks: the Selfish Series

A while back I mentioned that I was working on a new papertoy called Drukk

drukk: new papertoy by Matthijs Kamstra aka [mck]

Drukk is a simple papertoy (easy to build, easy to customize) with moving parts (you could call it a paper automata). So if you are not in the mood to build/customize a more complex model like Grumm you should give Drukk a try.

I have been working on 4 models to get you all inspired to build and create new Drukks πŸ˜‰ .

Me, Myself And I

Every Wednesday, for 4 weeks long, I will post a new Drukk from the Selfish Series.

But today I’ll start this Selfish Series with a blank Drukk template (because every really good papertoy series has a blank version) which will be used in the “Pusher Series”:

(The .ZIP file contains a .PDF)

Special thx to some of the friendly people at nicePaperToys who gave me feedback about the build and the model itself.

Tomorrow more….
