Just thought I'd post some pics of a project I'm working on for school. We're designing our own papercraft toys/models. I decided to be ambitous/stupid and make something horrendously complex, a guild wars charr!

EDIT: Just finished the "final" Rytlock skinned version along with a PDF for making your own as well as a blank one if you want to design your own charr!
You can download it here!
The link should now point to my deviantart page where I've got the pdf available for download.

Here's some images of my completed model

Ah it's so cute! Have you considered posting the blueprints of it so we can make our own? Because I would be all over that.

I'd be happy to post instructions/blueprints once I get it finished. I should have a finished or near finished design to post later this week.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! :D

That is really cool! :)   I'm looking forward to seeing the detailed version.

Do you plan to do any others?   Like an asuran golem? ;)

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

@Murdernickle: If you're interested I'll gladly post a blank version of the plans along with the finished thing.

@Overlord: I didn't plan on doing many more but this is turning out to be so fun I might continue and make a whole series of GW papercraft :)

I'd be interested in seeing a black & white blueprint posted so everybody can go into photoshop and color their very own charr.

Good job :D

Thanks so much for sharing the blueprints! I am totally going to make a Rytlock, and try to design my own charr as well. And tell all of my GW2 fan friends about this.

Wonderful work.  I love paper craft (but they are so hard to make...)
Would want to try it out someday.  Plan to make more?

The detailed version is terrific!   I broke out in a big grin when I saw it :D

Wow, I downloaded the PDF and you did an awesome job! :D   It looks really professional with the graphics, instructions and even the blank customizable charr!   Thank you!  

(I think I'm going to reduce the size of the paper and make a little mini-version of Rytlock)  

Of course, you realize now that I will be bugging you for the rest of Destiny's Edge now?   They would be perfect to adorn desktop monitors!

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

@Overlord: Ha! I've already got some ideas kicking around for possibly making Zojja & a Golem but idk how soon I'll be able to get to it as I've got plenty of school projects eating up my time atm. I'll definitely keep this thread updated with anything new I make though. :)

Also, I'd like to thank KiyaKoreena for making a GW2 based font and to ArenaNet for providing us with the GW2 asset kit. My instruction PDF wouldn't be nearly attractive without those resources.

Congratz on getting the Admin's Pick on the front page of GW2Guru!    It was great seeing your papercraft Rytlock there.

I emailed this thread to my girlfriend.  She doesn't play video games, but she LOVES the charr plushie.  This was her reply to seeing the papercraft charr:

"EEEEEEEEEEEKK ITS SO CUUUUUUTE! i want one!"

You, sir (or ma'am?), are a genius!  :)

@Silvanus: Haha yeah different printers seem to do weird things with colors I've found. But it's so cool seeing one of these I didn't personally make. So glad yours turned out well. :)

@Shinga: Glad you and your girlfriend like it. There's definitely an appeal to making the charr with cute proportions. :p
