I actually use google sketchup for getting the shapes right, it's fast and easy, and theres some extremely convenient unwrapping/tab adding plugins specifically for papercraft design, + it works on mac.
the art/textures are then done in photoshop, some trial and error is necessary for some things, but all in all it's not so hard.

But how do you print it? Do ya just use a regular printer?
Pixel Art, what (mostly) all of us are here for.

yup. but for some reason printing directly from photoshop doesn't work as well, so I usually open the jpgs in preview and print from there

I just realized that Rosie's cosplay costume is Hatsune Miku's outfit. Any chance you can make her a wig with Miku's gigantic twin tails?

ive been too timid to attempt miku's hair, otherwise I would have totally made a miku model by now.

also I've started moving over to a side project, which involves robots!

Wow, these things are so cute. I definitely think the new base looks better than the round one. Those robots are looking really sick too!

How smart, you're using 3D UVW maps for the real world. Great idea. Just cut along the outer edges and fold along the lines. Do you use any special folding technique to get crisp folds? Got a thing for clever print production.

thanks all. This side project has effectively consumed me! I just made a new monster design that I'm quite proud of, and in the process of refining the tabletop game that  goes along with these :D  (any playtesting would help a lot)
posted everything on littleroller.blogspot.com  :D




I don't actually have any folding techniques whatsoever.. If it's important that I get a nice clean fold I might put something like a metal ruler down, but otherwise I'm very into the casual hobby-ist attitude, my designs included.
