Paper Toy Blanks: Contender, Hood and Brute, Basic

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Hello everyone!  Just letting you know that the blanks for ” Contender, Hood ” ( used for Ezio ) and ” Brute, Basic ” ( for Bane ) is now available in the downloads section.

Contender, Hood

Brute, Basic

Note that I edited the title block a bit – to provide enough space to place the ” customizer’s ” logo on the template.  I think it’s only fitting.  Give credit where credit is due, right?

So far, we have:

  • Rondo, Basic
  • Contender, Basic ( uploaded )
  • Contender, Ears ( the one used for Wolverine, Heihachi, etc… )
  • Contender, Hood ( uploaded )
  • Contender, Accessories 1
  • Contender, Accessories 2
  • Contender, ( coming soon )
  • The Brute ( uploaded )
  • Tough Guy ( coming soon )
  • Muscular ( coming soon )
  • Agent Nix ( coming soon )
  • Steam Punk Series ( coming soon )

As mentioned, I’ll be releasing more blanks in the near future as well as new templates – plenty in the works 😉 .  I am currently looking for artists to collaborate with – I’ll design the template, the artist creates the fabulous art.  Expect an “official” post on that sometime soon for more details.  But if you’re interested to discuss options sooner or if you have any questions or custom requests for the current templates ( or maybe a sneak peak at what’s coming soon ), just send me a message through the contact form of this blog.

Just like last time, the templates are free to use.  My only request is to be given due credit and a link to this site.   Please do send me images of your customs and your template ( message me first through the contact form ) as well as your site addresses and download links so I can make a post about it.

I look forward to seeing all the awesome customs!

As always, you can download the template here.  Subscribe to this blog to receive the password in the mail and gain access to the downloa

That’s all for now.  Cheers!

The Brute! A brand new template Part 2

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

I posted a while back that I was working on a new template – a few actually, but I only blogged about the “Brute” that time.  For a quick trip down memory lane, go HERE

For those of you who missed it and were too lazy to check (shame on you)!  As a quick review, the “Brute” is a template with top-heavy proportions.  I find those type of characters, cool, fun, interesting to draw and even more interesting, in my opinion, as a paper toy.  So I tried designing a template and in the process, experimented with a couple of options:



Second - Do you think I should make  his legs a bit longer? His head a bit smaller? His arms a bit thicker?

Second - Do you think I should make the legs a bit longer, the head a bit smaller, and the arms a bit thicker?

The first one worked out fine, but it felt like “blah” to me.  The second one however, I found more exciting, but somehow feels a bit off.  Probably due to the proportions or something, I’m not quite sure yet.  I’ll probably play around with the shape a bit more.  I cant say I’m satisfied with it just yet to merit an official release.

How about something like this?

How about something like this? Going headless?

Do you agree that the shape is a bit off or does it look fine to you?  As of the moment, I’m leaning on the “no heads” version, the proportions kinda fit.  What do you think?  I’ll do a couple more experiments and let you know how it goes.   In the meantime, how about some audience participation – any suggestions for characters to use this template on?  Let me know – I make no promises, but still, it’s great to hear from you.

I’ll list down some ideas, just to get the ball rolling:

Plus points to anyone who knows from which C.B.-pencilled COMIC Cole is from. 😉

That’s all for now.
