All together now ... "D'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwww!"

Another round Paperpoké model, but this time it's two for the price of one! And yes, it actually balances on that tail bobble (with the aid of a 5˘ coin), unless there is a sudden gust of wind. I read that the height of this Pokémon was 20cm tall - I guess it would just be the body height, not body on bobble height - so this model is half its "real-life" size.

It's a pretty basic build, the only tip I think I need to give is attach the bottom of the body to the top of the bobble with a drop of superglue, and tweezers are essential for the tail.

Did you design all of these? Wow!

No, I didn't design these, I just test built them, but thank you.

wah. How did you get the body to be so smoove looking? I've tried using the lineless model without embossing the lines and the tabs were giving me so much issues. It just didn't seem to line up properly or there was this huge gap left, then placing so much tension caused the paper to dent near the glued tabs. >_<" So i built another face using the lineless model but embossing it this time, and its getting so square"ish. >_<"

When you build lineless models, you should still emboss the tab-lines. But the secret is in the glue (I keep telling everyone, but no one listens). If you have crap glue, you cannot align the model pieces perfectly, no matter how good your skills are. Good glue will cut your building time in half and make your models amazing!

That's why I don't testbuild anymore - my glue is no longer available :( and after trying 10 other types of glue, I just couldn't find an equivalent, so I gave up.

GASP! You don't testbuild anymore. >_<" sad face. Aleene's tacky glue seems to work alright for me. Well it beat the rest, compared to all the other test trials I had to go through for glue. loll.

I do emboss the tabs, but sometimes I take a ruler and use a pencil to draw out the lines that appear on a lined model, unto a lineless model, emboss it, and then erase the pencil line so it helps with square like shaped models instead of printing out lined models and having that lined mark on the model's face (which bothers me oh so much) loll. But since this model is a circle, embossing it like I usually have, gives it a squarish shape? >_<" I don't know, maybe I'm just embossing it too much or I should curl the pieces first without the embossment? Meh. I'll try again. loll. This model is too cute to give up so easily.

Btw, may I ask what kind of glue you used before?

If you choose to do lined models, I find that it's best to emboss, but DO NOT fold the embossed lines, but rather, allow them to help you by bending at the weak points you just made.

Even the lineless models do need embossing in certain spots, where an angle of the model requires a less than 90 degree bend in the paper, eg: claw, tooth, etc. This is why we always include the PDO, so that the builder can see the 3D model and assess how to approach the construction.

I use to use Power Pritt Gel, but like I said, they don't make it any more, and the replacement product just isn't nearly as good as the original stuff - it takes 4 times longer to stick, but when it does, it's more or less the same - but it means it takes me 4 times longer to build anything.

"D'aaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww!" *Squeals* I found the paperpokes site first and clicked on the link to your name there and it brought me to your dA page :heart: I've been making model for my friends' birthdays and they all love them so much!

I can imagine - it's not everyday that you receive a "real life" Pokémon!
