Deku Guard Papercraft by Drummyralf Deku Guard Papercraft by Drummyralf
This one didn't quite came out as I had hoped for, since closing the head just did not work for some reason. The double-sided leaves made it hard to fold the tabs and close it down properly. This little bugger is also one big mess of glue, but that's all my own fault.

It's still a nice craft nonetheless!

Yeah double sides complicate things, but I'm a sucker for getting extra detail. :paranoid:
Sorry to hear you had some trouble but I'm very happy to see you've built it so soon! Thanks! :)

Hehe, it does make it look so much better. I'm glad I did a double-sided build :)

And it looks so cute! I'm so going to build your Mad Scrub soon! I'm sure it will look just as awesome!

Someone's been busy. :P

I really like this guy and the Deku scrub. They're so adorably cute. I'm also really loving this green background. I gotta go get me some of this shade of green.

Yup! I'm really going to make Xenon's Mad Scrub as well!

I really love how you always snap these crafts in an image, so I decided to copycat your idea!
I got the green in some pack with different colors. I seriously need to get myself some black though.

I have to make the best of my so-so camera and I almost can never get good enough lighting when I take a pic so I almost always adjust brightness and contrast to make the craft pop out more.

So what I try to do is choose a background color that doesn't exist in the craft. Then I can select the background easily using Photoshop's magic wand then adjust the brightness/contrast of the background. Then I select inverse so I can adjust the brightness/contrast for the craft separately.

You must have a good camera though. I can tell by the pics. I don't think that's a point and shoot.

Oh yeah, I forgot about brightness and contrast! That makes the picture feel so much more "alive"

And I use a semi-proffesional camera. I happen to have 2 of the same desk-lights, and I shine with those two onto the papercraft from frontleft and frontright position. That's why I always have two shadows, but it does make the craft stand out more then when I use one light. When you only use one light source, there are always parts that get covered in shadow, which is a shame.

And about the photoshopping. This very papercraft is the first one I actually cleaned up a bit. The back of the head was SO full of gluespots, that I smudged the spots out. Shame on me :P

Thanks for the tips, I'll see if I can use it in my next photoshoot :o :D
