Steelix Papercraft by DarkTailss Steelix Papercraft by DarkTailss
Whew, took 2 days to finish it, and it's only an okay result. For the next one I'm going to be more careful with cutting and use a pipe-cleaner down the center to make it more solid when posing.

oh man this would've taken forever! Did you just print it off of a site or did you use the program to make it?

It felt like it took forever, the OCD kicked-in and let me go 2 days and nights straight assembling it xD Most of the time was spent cutting it out. You simply download a pattern and cut out all the pieces then glue/string them together, this one was like 8 pages or something. Not only that, there are specific places and ways to fold certain parts and I did it without guidelines so it would look good on display, without the ugly dotted fold-lines. It's a lot clearer how huge a pain the ass it is to make once you try making one yourself! :lol:

Yeah, I strung it together with some string, next time I will use a pipe-cleaner so it will be strong and still be able to move.

Yeah! Though I learned my lesson, next time I'm using thicker paper. Check-out the other pics of my pal Steelix, like when he's playing hide-n-seek with Raichu and about to eat a Team Rocket grunt xD

I already did :w00t: They are all very cool. Not actually that into pokemon anymore however I had a falling out right around the time Steelix and his generation came out though I still liked him and Scissor never really cared much for the others though :shrug:

What would you plan on making next time? another Steelix or Onix (I assume they are easiest to make) or something more complicated perhaps?

Noooooooo!

NOOOOOOOO! xD

These guys are very straightforward to build, but are a pain to string together the segments x_X

I think I should make an Onix, I just need better paper. I made a little Treasure Chest and Small Key from Legend of Zelda, should put pics up of those too I guess...

The Chest and key would be cool. Also look at watercolor paper its usually thicker than regular paper though you might have trouble finding a colored paper of it... just a thought

I don't know if watercolor paper would work for printing (you print-out all the parts, cut the out, then go nuts gluing everything together @_@)

Some 40# paper would work, but I need money to buy it xD I only have standard 20# paper around here :P

I guess this is the only way to make Steelix more weak to Fire...

Epic work all the same!

My Steelix is not weak against fire! My Steelix eats fire for breakfast and craps charcoal bricks!

:iconfrageplz:

Lol, I actually sprayed it with some sealer to make it water/grease-proof, but I think it made it slightly more flammable too xD!!!

Thanksssss!

Go to www.papercraftmuseum.com and download the templates from there. After that, it's just you, some scissors, and a stick of glue and boom, you get a Steelix!
