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

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)

 oh, it only SOUNDs hard but its actually pretty silly. You are welcome, your kaijuss are really cute!

Glad you like 'em. Have tons more planned.
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.

i based it on several know, the animators mirror cutiemarks sometimes i guess i saw more of the other side.just tell me with side goes each horn of Discord if you can XD i looked at all of his first appereance and could not know exactly
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

i will apply that to my next models!
