Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle Scene







Template: Lined

Template: No Lines

.pdo Guide




                             
 
Now you can make your own model of Commander Keen, along with some of his most common (and clueless) enemies, a slug and a bounder. The paper model includes a background sheet of Keen's ship in the forest. Never heard of the series? Try it out in your browser, here! There's also a great community for the series at the Public Commander Keen Forum, if you want to find more.



Also check out these orchestral covers of the themes. ^ ^

Jazz Jackrabbit: Hoverboard Pose






Template: Lined

Template: No Lines

.pdo Guide


Available Model Links: Jazz | Spaz | Eva | Carrot Juice


It's Jazz, the capable green rabbit with a Rambo bandana who's been tasked with saving the universe using only his quick feet, floppy ears, and big gun. Never heard of him? Check out this old classic here! You can play the whole series right from your browser. It's full of 80s references from Terminator to Prince...although I didn't realize that as a kid. (#^ ^#) Since the game only ever had 2D installments, I've created this model from scratch (textures too), and I plan to do more with the other primary characters. This game was one of my first favorites (besides floppy ears, we had it on floppy disk heh...), so I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Also, I couldn't find a copy of the Jazz Jackrabbit comics online when I was searching for character references, so I went ahead and scanned my old booklet. Check it out, if you're in the mood for a space-rabbit story. ^ ^

New Guides & Software for Mac Users


I've completed the guide on ripping models and added a complementary one on editing 3D for papercraft. Please find these on the Resources page, and check out a preview of the editing chapters below!

-       Step One: Optimizing a Model
-       Step Two: Mapping Textures
-       Step Three: Adding Bones/Posing a Model
-       Step Four: Unfolding a Layout in Pepakura
-       Step Five: Publishing Your Work
I've also added a section specifically focused on software for those who might want to create papercraft using a mac OS. I've been doing this myself and have found these solutions to work on OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

Tip! The textures on the .pdo are changeable, so you can change this craft from featuring Punchy, Snake, and Axel to any cat, rabbit, and elephant from Animal Crossing you want if you find/make the textures.

New Model: Spyro & Sparx!

I've wanted to do Spyro since the time I very first began crafting, but it was completely impossible to rip from Playstation games back then. Well! Times have changed. ^ ^ I'm proud to present my craft of Spyro and Sparx on one of the characteristic pedestals that are scattered around the Spyro home world in the first game. I edited, posed, and unfolded the model myself. Find it in the Papercraft Archive!

Updates~



Hi everyone! After all these years, I've decided to make some changes to the site. I am no longer going to be keeping the paid web host I'd been using, so I had to decide whether to revive the site or let it go entirely. I'm happy to say I've archived the old material and am working on moving it over to a new server, while bringing back the original notebook-style design of the site pages. I have also put together the rest of the guide on how to make your own crafts *gasp*!! After... only 10 years! ^ ^ ;; Someone had asked back then when the Nintendo Papercraft forums were in their heyday if we all thought we'd still be crafting after 10 years. I remember saying I couldn't think of a reason why I wouldn't, and it's funny to consider that prediction would have been untrue at 5 years but here at 10 it's turned out bright. Well, they were busy years: I was just finishing high school at that time and attending universities, living abroad in several places, and encountering many more travel experiences kept me away. I'm in a quiet patch now and have all the crafting things running again a bit. I'll be re-uploading the old crafts (after making a few improvements I'd always meant to get around to) in addition to adding ones that were mostly finished back then, along with entirely new works. This site has consistently received about 700 views a month over all these years, so I sincerely thank you all for continuing to pop by. #^ ^# I hope you'll look forward to the projects to come, and please feel free to write me a comment if there's anything you'd like to share!
