That is pretty crazy.  Hard to believe she is made out of paper.
Too bad she gets soggy when wet.

Wow that's pretty cool! I'm curious about the process, does this involve unwrapping 3d models and printing them?

Wow, does it have any inside structure to support it or is it all paper? And is it mesmer or necromancer? You devitanart and this thread titles don't agree :P

Maybe I'll do a video tutorial someday, idk, its dangerous because it involves injecting third party software into the game client and most games dont like that and you risk a ban :P . And BTW I did a Mesmer from GW1 its on my Deviantart Gallery <-CLICK THAT :3

That looks really, really neat! Also checked out your Deviantart, lots of awesome stuff there too.

How do you glue it all together? .... is it glued? I have no idea how papercraft works. :D

Yep they are glued, with the cheap white glue that you used in kindergarten to make "art" with macaron. Papercraft is about making 3D models with paper, its like this:

1) You use special software to "unwrap" a 3d model and "cut it" in many piecesl. <- this part costs "brain" you need to know a little about 3D animation, modeling and texturing
2) You make a template of all the pieces generated from step 1 and you print it. <-this part costs money $$$$, printing is expensive these days
3)Cut and glue all the pieces.as it it were a 3D puzzle. <-this part costs time and patience

I sure hate that elms glue.  That cow always laugh at my failure, and getting sticky all over.

Do a Charr one next time.  And are you going to release the plans/template?
