Zubat Papercraft by Skele-kitty Zubat Papercraft by Skele-kitty
Oh, thank god it's done! I attempted this one 4 times and I wasn't going to let it get the best of me. The mouth-face part was awful - it totally did my head in. But I finally finished it, and I'm never going to do it again ... EVER!

But I still love it - it is absolutely gorgeous. It's wings even flap when you wave it about! And I completed it just in time for Halloween! :heart:

The model you see in the above image is only the beta-test, and after some minor adjustments to the mouth and a little alteration to the thickness of the wings, by PMF [link] , here is a final release: [link]

These are amazing! They aren't game rips, are they?

They are pretty darn amazing, aren't they!

I love these high quality Pokemon that PMF is releasing - you should see my wish list, I'm too scared to show him in case I look ungrateful!

I believe that they are game rips - but PMF still spends quite some time on them, fixing up the textures and other 3D errors that still occur.

PMF is very talented. I know how crazy those pokemon stadium models can be. And the textures are so small! How does PMF fix those?

Nice! I've noticed that even though it looks so simple Zubat is one of the hardest pokemon for anything!

Thank you!

I'm sure that the final version won't be quite as difficult or painful - this one was created on PMF's computer in 2 hours as a kind of dare from me!

Yeah, that'll definitely be the last time I build something based on a dare - so I guess I got what was coming to me!

This one almost drove me insane, but I was determined to not let it get the better of me.

I would be incredibly cheap and make the wing flat. XD

It wasn't the wings that was the problem, it was the face! That gaping mouth in the head was a right royal pain in my butt!

Weird, i had that very same issue with Char's sig a while ago, he could see it fine, whereas when I saw it, it was all f**ked up!

I think it's a DA issue, don't worry, kitty will be back as soon as they get their arse into gear!

Awesome, yes! Buildable, not particularly. ;)

I actually described this model to Paperbuff as one of those puzzle games. You know the one that has a square base and lots of different shapes that you place on top of the square to completely cover it up perfectly?

There is only one correct configuration and any other configuration will get you close, but not right!

not buildable? ha. try this one. once im done with samus, i'll be doing this one. (btw, samus's head is done...)

Skele-kitty Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You finished Samus' head, you say? I'd really like to see the photos.

Oh, and make sure you get PMF's final release of Zubat, and not this beta version that he uploaded on NP and then removed ... because it was "FUBAR", lol!

I'll upload it here when I get my own hands on it.

ehh, i may redo the head. it doesn't look very good. when i get the time, i can probally finish it in about a day with the new glue i got. ^.^

Got glue yet?

:iconganon-destroyer:
ganon-destroyer Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2008
i meant i could probally finish the whole papercraft in a day. the glue i got is kind of like semi-quick-drying elmer's glue. and i already had the glue, so yes. the problem is that i don't have a whole lot of time to work on it. maybe when i get home from my dad's...

Yeah, I totally understand!

It is a pretty time consuming past-time, sometimes I look up from building something and it's already 2am!

The finished version will be better and more builder friendly ... when it it finally released.

THEN it will be both beautiful and buildable :D

Sort of an award thing. They give them to a few deviations everyday. Lotsa people look at them, it's great exposure for the artist. Only really good stuff gets in. You can find them here: [link]

I am honoured that You would even considered my papercraft for this award!

ArkWelder Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2008
No seriously, your papercraft is so intricate. I don't think you'd get one though, I've only seen one paper-thing as a DD, which was a lot more complicated and I think maybe set the bar higher. But honestly, occasionally some real shit gets on the DDs that most people could top. But most of the times it's pretty fair, I look through them everyday. Inspirational.

There's the thing.
