Mario, Link and other papercrafts by Ivana

(click for a bigger picture)

14-01-2016: Ivana from Brazil doesn’t remember exactly when she made the first papercraft in the picture above, but she does remember the order she made them in:

  1. the Master Sword in the pedestal, from The Legend of Zelda (by Xenonray)
  2. Toad, from the Mario series (by Oli Gig I think)
  3. Goku, from Dragon Ball Z (I think by Action Papercrafts)
  4. Link, from the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (by me ;o)
  5. the Energy tank from the Metroid series (by Zenith Designs)
  6. Mario (by me again)

For Mario, she didn’t even need to use the instructions! But for Link, she was glad I made them because that one is more difficult…!

For Mario, she sent me bigger picture too: picture

I think it looks pretty good, don’t you? ;o)

She also sent some more pictures of Link, who seems to be admiring the Master Sword in the pedestal: picture

And moments later, the Master Sword has mysteriously disappeared from the pedestal: picture

I think Link took it, but it’s okay of course, since he’s a good guy. ;o)

So you can see that Ivana has taken quite a liking to making papercrafts. She told me she already printed my papercraft Lara Croft from Tomb Raider Legend, and I hope she’ll enjoy making that one too of course! ;o)

Thank you for downloading and building these Ninjatoes’ (and others’ ;o) papercraft models!

Zelda & Tomb Raider papercrafts by Noemie-in-Art

15-03-2016: Noemi-in-art took a break from building paper Laras again, to build a paper Impa! ;o)

She had the right idea that building a “smoother” papercraft is usually a bit less work than having to make all the folds on a “blocky” papercraft, but she overlooked the fact that she had to make all the separate fingers, and even the toes… ;o)

In the end, most parts took her only a day, but the tiny parts took another 2 days…!

Luckily, Noemi-in-art is pretty experienced in papercraft already, just check out her DeviantArt page with more and bigger pictures, and other artworks too! ;o)

09-01-2016: I think it’s safe to say that Noemi-in-Art is just as big a fan of the classic Tomb Raider fan as myself, because you have to be to make so many of my classic Tomb Raider papercrafts!

(and she explains she is in the comments on her DeviantArt posts ;o)

This time, she made my latest one, of Lara Croft in the Atlantean levels of the first Tomb Raider game, confronted by her… clone? picture

The clone, or Lara replica that the evil Natla seemed to have made of Lara didn’t seem quite complete yet though, as it didn’t have any skin

Pretty gruesome if you think about it, even in a 1996 polygonal world – and the origin of the nickname that fans gave her: bacon Lara. ;o)

01-09-2015: Noemie-in-Art shows how much she likes Tomb Raider with a neat strategy-guide, the game of course, and a papercraft of Lara Croft – and two rats: picture ;o)

It’s already a pretty challenging papercraft, with quite a few thin pieces and parts, and what made it even more work for Noemie, was that her printer wasn’t really cooperating when she printed the parts…

So she had to add *every* little shadow herself afterwards, which was a lot of work, but makes it a really unique papercraft of course! ;o)

Noemie also built Cole, from the Legend of Zelda, and several other of my Tomb Raider papercrafts before, and she also does sculptures, drawings and other artworks; you can see it all in her DeviantArt’s page: link! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk. II & Cylon Raider by paperdemon

07-12-2015: Bernd (paperdemon) from Germany runs a small computer repair shop, so you know he’s good with electronics. But as you can see from the picture, he’s also good with paper! ;o)

In 2010, a buddy of Bernd’s told him how he found a cool papercraft “Firefly” spaceship from the tv series “Serenity” that was trying to pt together, but that he run into some problems.

Being a fan of the “Serenity”/”Firefly” series too, Bernd tried out the papercraft model too, but ran into the same problems… He managed to fix the problem though, and even made a website about the papercraft Serenity: firefly-serenity.de

After that, Bernd was hooked on the new hobby, and among other papercraft sites around the web, he found mine! ;o)

He built my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II before, but using only 80 gsm paper, it looked like “like Starbuck had crashed it on some planet…   ;)” (his words ;o)

So he decided to build it again, together with the Cylon Raider, and the picture shows how good the result was the second time!

And I think it’s safe to say that Bernd is quite a sci-fi fan, because after my Battlestar Galactica models, he also built the “Planet Express” ship, from the “Futuruma” cartoon, which he found more challenging than the previous ones… ;o)

I hope he can still find the time to repair computers, in between building papercrafts…! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Epona & Link by SuperRetroBro

16-09-2015: SuperRetroBro built many papercrafts already, and this time he built my Epona & Link, from “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”!

And as you can see, he did a really great job too, because they look very cool from all angles! ;o)

The “SpeedCraft” in the pictures refers to the speedcraft video they made for this build, and that you can see on SuperRetroBro’s YouTube page: link

There, you can also see many other SpeedCraft videos of the other papercrafts on their DeviantArt page.

Now you don’t need to try to build your papercrafts thát fast yourself of course! ;o) Just take your time and they’ll turn out just as great as the ones from SuperRetroBro!

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

adult Link by Matthias

07-09-2015: Matthias from Germany sent me a picture of the papercraft adult Link that he built just last night!

It looks great, and it’s even more impressive if you know that he built it in just 9 hours in his first try!

And it looks like Matthias has already given Link an important job to do: guard the Nintendo Game Boys that Matthias collected! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

9 inch LEGO man by Jeremy

20-06-2015: Jeremy sent me this picture of a 9 inch (about 23 cm) papercraft LEGO man that he built.

He says it is based on the “spaceman” LEGO pattern, and I think Jeremy did a very good job, it looks like a very clean build! ;o)

So good in fact, that I think the minifigure in the front is a bit jealous: with its extra long legs, it looks like it wished it would be bigger too…! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Wolf Link by Sarah

16-04-2015: Sarah from Australia sent me these two pictures (here’s the other one: picture) of my papercraft wolf Link and Midna that she built!

Wolf  link is a *very* challenging model with a lot of small parts like the teeth, so it took Sarah 2 months to build it.

And if you look at the pictures, you can see by not folding most of the parts, Sarah made her wolf Link very round and smooth.

Midna is a lot easier to build, but Sarah did have to scale her down a little bit. It didn’t cause much trouble though as you can see in the pictures! ;o)

Wolf Link and Midna weren’t the first two paper models of mine that Sarah built, and if they’re any indication, the rest must look really good too! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’papercraft models!
