as a somewhat budding paper model artist, would you tell me how you measure a curved line so that the adjoining piece fits and lines up correctly? I hope you don't use a 3d imaging program because I've tried and failed with that, lol. But right now I'm kind of stuck with resorting to straight edges because I can just measure them easily by the pixel on paint.net.

AHHH XD it took me half a year how to figure that.wonderful question my friend! :)
i do not use a 3d program, but i do use a piece yarn/sewing thread/(sometimes my headphones cable)etc.
when i`m tracing the pattern in a vector program XD(this will sound ridiculous) i zoom out enough to see both parts, and in real life i put the tread carefully against the screen following the shape i`m interested in, then i measure it with a ruler or compare it putting it over the other part(the one that has to measure like the other and make adjustments as needed). LOL i dunno if i explained it clear i hope you understand.

other times i directly create in the vector program a curve just as the one that needs measuring over it and jut rotate it with the center on the beginning, like if i were using a compass and opening it.

oh intersting. I don't know if I'd be good with that first way. What I do is I measure and count straight line by straight line.
The other way sounds hard too. Thanks for following me on my tumblr btw. x)

Her cutie mark comes out backwards. The zig-zag of the lightning bolt is supposed to mimic the zig-zag of the joints on the leg it appears on, so the tip of the bolt always points towards the rear. The red streak in the bold is always the leading edge, and the blue streak is the trailing edge. This is an often overlooked detail in fan work.

Clapping Pony Icon - Rainbow Dash its really good. my only suggestion would be to use dotted lines versus just lines to differentiate where to fold and where to cut

How thick does the paper have to be? I don't want my papercraft to be too fragile...
Reply
:iconkna:
Kna Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
well, anything around 250 grs is too much(probably you will have lots of trouble on the tiny parts). but from 120 grs to 180 it is really okay.i sometimes use 150 grs, or 120 grs.(depends what they sell when i buy)

Thanks. Well, it looks like my Samsung CLX-3300 cannot use that kind of paper; it jams every time...
Can I just use normal paper?

Print on normal paper
cut out
glue onto thicker paper
cut out again
make model
voila!

yes, of vourse. just will have to be a bit careful with the head parts,so they do not become crushed.

Ok, I just glued the normal paper on cardstock. I'm almost finished it now, but I cannot figure out how the main body is assembled (the apple shaped part lol)

Kna Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
the torso goes inside the back of the neck.(i believe tha apple shaped form must be the torso.

:iconslipshock:
Slipshock Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, okay. Thanks. I was having trouble putting the torso together but I made do :P
I finished the papercraft. I didn't do very good, though. D: My parts didn't stick together and the head especially was just a mess...

is the finished result... if you can even call it a result...
