Darksiders WAR - left arm ready! by bambryl
Darksiders WAR - left arm ready!
Yesterday I managed to complete this left arm of War, looks great but I could make it better next time. There are some problems with this model and sometimes you just have to improvise. Some parts do not connect as they should and it takes some time to figure out how to put them together in a way that looks best. Now it's time for his right arm, this should be easier. :)

Darksiders WAR - legs DONE!
As promised, yesterday I managed to complete legs and waist elements. Now it's time to make the connection between legs and torso in a way so that the figure could be disassembled easily into two parts. :)

Darksiders WAR - legs in progress
It took me a while to firmly connect leg parts to the boots but in the end it turned up fine. This left leg I made yesterday, today I should make the other one and maybe the waist. I need to build this model from the bottom upwards cause I use expanding foam as a filler for the main body. Also I came up with an idea how to make the torso and legs to be seperate parts (easy to disassemble for transportation). I'll be sure to take some pictures and share. :)
A few tips about cutting:
  1. When using scissors - do not cut with a tip, it can rip the paper.
  2. Dump the scissors, get a scalpel!
  3. Remember, ALWAYS cut away from you. Blood sinks into the paper and can ruin a months worth of hard work. Cuts heal. :P
  4. Cut away from the piece, this way you can be sure not to destroy your part.
  5. For small cuts just press the blade down, don't slide it!
  6. When cutting a straigh line follow a point just an inch away from your blade in the direction you are cutting, your brain will do the rest, trust me.
  7. Always cut a little further than necessary, this way you can get perfect corners.
  8. Cutting small curves may be annoying. Do it with the tip of the blade and do not try to do it all in one swing.
  9. Do not cut out all of the pieces at once, when a model is a big one, you will make a terrible mess. Unless you find a decent way of organizing your pieces of course.
  10. Plan ahead. Cut out the pieces that come together in a reasonable order. You don't want to find yourself in a situation in which you have to glue a part with eight flaps INSIDE a part that is already closed from all sides.
  11. Dull blade is your enemy. You can tell if the blade has become dull by inspecting the quality of the cuts. If the paper rises slightly on the edge, your blade is dull.

Believe it or not - a phisicist. :P Papercraft is just a hobby, a very addictive one I must say. Professionally I design power boilers.

Thank you, I'm flattered. :) I guess papercraft is not as hard as it looks but it requires a lot of patience to look good and clean. For me it's simply fun, like sudoku or crossword puzzles for others.
