blast from the past - OoT young link papercraft by minidelirium blast from the past - OoT young link papercraft by minidelirium
this is the first medium complex build I did. I built it in the summer of 2009. it's Ninjatoes young OoT Link. sadly this is the only picture I have of him since he disappeared sometime in 2010 and the next time I saw him he was flat under a box I moved in 2011. Waaaah!  too bad I didn't have a better camera. CURSE YOU! 

the reason I'm putting it up now is to show that we all start from the beginning, so keep building, it'll get easier and easier and this is such a stimulating hobby that I don't want people to stop just because their first build is a work of love rather than skill. it's still a papercraft. you still put your work and hours into it. be proud of that crapfest! it's YOUR crappy build and at least you finished it! 

and as soon as you're done: GO BUILD ANOTHER MODEL!!! :happybounce:

It's one of the first papercraft Zelda models I made (I did princess Zelda and Majora's Mask first) and people still like it, because hey, it's Link! ;o)

that, and it's a very good model. I enjoyed making it immensly. this is the first thing I was really bursting of pride over, today I wouldn't be as proud if I produced something like that, but man did I run around squeeling from joy when I was done!
I mean, this model made me very clear on what I'd waste my free time on and made me think I could actually get really good at this model building stuff. it felt like comming home to see him in the physical world.

so thank you for producing freakkin awesome models for everyone to build! and for free too!!! omfg 
I mean, that's pretty rare in this consumer driven world, but you and the other Papercraft Gurus made this hobby into something anyone with access to a printer could do. it's very VERY awesome to be a part of this wonderful hobby and it's very nice to be able to make my own paper figurines instead of throwing what money I have on plastic from ebay. :aww: so again, thank you! :heart:

Yes, the great thing about papercraft is that not only pretty much everybody can build them, but also pretty much everybody can make them! Especially paper models from video game, the game creators keep inventing new, wonderful worlds and characters, and over the years, many fans have gotten into papercraft and were able to start making and sharing their own for other fans to enjoy too! ;o)

That's funny that we began with the same model, I think Ninjatoes is kind of the Papercraft God, thanks to him we discovered Papercraft which is the best thing ever and only if someone cut my hands and my feet off would make me stop papercrafting !
I don't know for you but seeing this papercraft reminds me sooooo much memories, the time when Papercraft was something completely new and magical for me, it was the beginning of a great journey and now here I am creating my own Papercrafts, thinking about this all makes me want to shed a nostalgia tear !

And he is also one of the firsts Papercrafters ever, I remember when I began papercraft the Paperkraft.net blog was all new and Ninjatoes had the best models back then !

Yeah those were the good days, but good for us, Papercraft remained as awesome as it was back then and it even gets better and better since the models are getting more and more detailed, each and every new model we build is a new experience in itself !

But I have to admit that his most recent models are not as good as they were before, it's still good but well... It's like something is "missing" and I can't say what...

Yeah I completely agree with you !! In fact the possibilities can't be more endless since as long as a 3D model exists it can be turned into a Papercraft and the cubee models even though I'm not fond of them can let designers imagination speak, in the end anyone who wants to begin Papercraft can find what they like and that's great !!

You know what ? Recently someone sent me a message to tell me that the Papercrafts I design motivated her to begin Papercraft, that I am an inspiration for her, and then she began Papercraft, and you know what ? She loves it ! It's the first time I have such a message and well... Now I know that I can create models that are able to make people begin Papercrafting and that's an awesome feeling !
