Guess Who

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Hello Everyone!

I’m just very excited about sharing what I’ve been working on behind the scenes while the “Villains Gallery” series is ongoing.  In case you’re all wondering, this guy will be released as part of another series following the current one.

Who Am I?

That’s it for now.




Tips ‘n Tricks: How To Assemble The Trench Coat

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Hi All,

Just adding a new tutorial to the “Assembly Instructions” page.  I hope y’all find this useful.  This is also a sort of teaser – I guess now you know what other character I’ve been working on behind the scenes.

How To Assemble The Trench Coat

Template: The Contender

STEP 1: Cut.

STEP 2: Fold.

STEP 3: Attach the arm, snip that excess off. Glue the arms if preferred.

STEP 4: Curl the bottom edges, for effect.

STEP 5: Attach the arms - if you haven't glued them yet.

STEP 6: Position the coat and attach around the neck.

STEP 7: Like so.

STEP 8: Tighten up the fold that attaches to the neck with a tweazer.

STEP 9: Voila!

Check out more tutorials here!


The Villains Gallery Part 5A: Magneto!

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Up next is Magneto, master of magnets, the only ultimate villain who can attract and repulse at the same time with style.  He is also one of the more confusing villains for me, simply because I never  know if he’s a good guy or a bad guy.

Magneto, attracting and repulsing here at PTA very soon.

Check back in a few days and be magnetized.

(Cue villainous laughter)


Paper Toy Inspiration: Tron Uprising

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012


I just saw a couple of episodes of Tron Uprising, and I was blown away.  To be honest, I wasn’t exactly expecting this reaction from me at all.  I found the Tron Legacy movie from 2010 to be a dud – no offense to the fans out there of course, just voicing out an opinion, but to be clear, I loved the movie for the visuals but I hated the story 😉

In my opinion, the series (so far) is a great example of what the movie should have been.  The story is great, pacing too, and the visuals are fantastic.  Each frame, in my opinion, can be framed.  If nothing else, I now have a better appreciation for the Tron mythology.  I highly suggest for all of you to check it out.

Similar to my Arrow post from weeks ago, I’ve already added Tron to my personal to do list 😉  That said, if any of you have any “primo” reference images from the series (turnarounds, character sheets, etc,..), please do send them over, I’d really appreciate it.

For now, I’ll leave you with a few images from the series.

Tron Uprising

Tron Light Cycles

Tron Alley Fight 😉

That’s it for now.

Go watch it!
