Crash Bandicoot 2-3 - Crash

Finally I completed this model, it took me around two weeks to build but I'm glad that it came out nicely

Crash Bandicoot is the title character and primary protagonist of the Crash Bandicoot series. He's an eastern barred bandicoot who was genetically enhanced by the series' main antagonist Doctor Neo Cortex. His most distinctive technique is one in which he spins like a tornado at high speeds and knocks away almost anything that he strikes

The model is 4 pages big (it took me a while to compress everything in 4 pages)

Posting schedule update

Hey everyone, I know you all expected Crash for Monday, but sadly I couldn't complete it in time but it will be released on Wednesday (for sure this time).

Since school is starting and I also am gonna have conservatory exams, I'm changing the posting schedule from every Monday to any day every two weeks. This will give me more time to work on models without needing to build them in a rush.

Crash Bandicoot Series Crates

And here's the crates I teased about last week.

Crates are items in the Crash Bandicoot series that supply wumpa fruit, sepcial abilities, extra lives, special equipment, or just placed as a trap for Crash.

The whole PDO is 10 pages big and it includes 27 different crates from the first 3 games.

If you want to print certain crates just edit the layout with Pepakura Designer

Update 1: New theme, post schedule and upcoming models

People may ask, what am I working on right now?

First things first, you can check everything in the upcoming papercrafts tab which I will update as I release new designs.

The next model release on Monday is gonna be the Crash Bandicoot crates collection I hinted in the latest papercraft release.

After the crates, I'll release a more complex model that will go together with Aku Aku (hopefully): that's nothing else than Crash Bandicoot himself from the 2nd and the 3rd game. All the progress I did so far is in the image.
You may ask "why is there a metal wire in the model?" and the answer is simple: The model needs stability and I'm adding a mix of cardboard with metal wires in it to add the most stability.

After the major Crash Bandicoot model release, I'll work on one last Crash model for now and then it will be Klonoa 2 time, with Klonoa himself.

At this point you can note that I updated my blog's theme and logo since the older ones were a bit outdated. I'll keep this theme for at least a couple years if not more and I really like how everything came out. I'll add extra stuff on the sidebar as well in the upcoming months.

I'm planning to keep a weekly monday release schedule in order to have the website active with focus on one model per week and to have enough time to design other papercrafts in the meanwhile.

As always I hope you all enjoy my papercrafts, stay tuned on monday for the next release!

Crash Bandicoot Aku Aku

I'm finally back from a year long hiatus with an unexpected return

Aku Aku is a witch doctor whose spirit now lives in a wooden mask who guides Crash, his sister Coco , and their friends as they defeat the forces of evil. In the platforming Crash games, if 3 masks are found, Crash becomes invincible for a limited amount of time, with Aku Aku being placed on Crash's face during this period. He is the deuteragonist of the series, as well as a father figure to Crash, Coco and their friends

The model is 2 pages big and it's really simple. Be sure to glue the front and backsides of the feathers and the beard with the pieces already folded. I suggest to use superglue to glue everything on the main body

The crates I used on the background will be released on next Monday
