Jiji the Cat Papercraft

Here is a paper model of Jiji, the cat from Kiki's Delivery Service. This is my version of Jiji, taken with permission from Kotetsu's web site, Kinmoku.net. I used the Luna paper model (Sailormoon's cat), changed it's color and added some whiskers. Meow!

Cool Blue Penguin

Summer has officially started, and it's very hot and dry here in my neck of the woods(always is). So, let's all eat some ice cream before we start on this cool blue penguin paper model. We've been featuring Mr. Ryo Tokisato's cute paper models for the past few weeks and if you like them (i know you do) kindly send him some email to thank him for his hard work.

No-Face 2

Here's the update to the No-Face paper model, it's about 2x bigger and I've cleaned up the lines on its face for a more cleaner look. What do you guys think? what else should be changed or added?

It's been pretty quite in paperkraft land for the past couple weeks, not because I've run out of paper models to do, but I've been doing my very own paper model. I won't go into details that much but let me tell you about the software I used, I bought Newtek Lightwave 8.5 as my 3D modeler and Tamasoft's Pepakura Designer to convert the 3D object to a paper model. I've chosen No-Face (Spirited Away) as my first model because it was the most requested via email and also I think it's pretty easy???
As you can see from the pics below that the final model is a bit small and still has that blocky effect all over his face and body, I'm still in the process of refining those features and making him about 2 or 3 times bigger. Also, I have not finished the instructions for assembling him (for novices), but most of you shouldn't have any problems with this one, I've pretty much aligned up the parts to be connected. This paper model is about 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" when completed.
So, I hope you like it and keep updated for the "smoother" version coming soon.

Sperm Whale

The sperm whale is the largest breed of toothed whale, it is distinctively characterized by its large head and can be one-third of its body. It also has a small lower jaw with conical teeth which fit into sockets on its upper jaw, a white mouth with a bright red tongue. They where named after their sought after "spermaceti oil" produced by their spermaceti organ located on its head. One look at the sperm whale and you might recognized it as the beast immortalized by Herman Melville in Moby Dick. This paper model was designed by Ryo Tokisato (Japan).
