ABSOL (Brandon's Anniversary Model)



359 / ABSOL - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Absol
Type: Dark
Species: Disaster Pokémon
Height: 1.2 m (3′11″)
Weight: 47 kg (103.6 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Absol is a quadrupedal mammal-like Pokémon. Its dark blue to gray body is covered in white fur, with a ruff around its neck and chest, and a tuft on the top of its head adorned with a single blue-black oval. It has a cat-like face, a scythe-like tail and a sickle-shaped growth on the side of its head. Its broad, circular feet are equipped with three claws each, and spikes protrude from the heels of its hind legs and the elbows of its anterior legs. Absol is able to predict when a natural disaster will occur, and tries to warn people when one is approaching. This often has the unfortunate effect of Absol itself being blamed for the disaster.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 21.8 cm/8.6 in
Width: 12.1 cm/ 4.8 in
Depth: 24.8 cm/9.8 in
No. of Pages: 6
No. of Pieces: 65
Level: Medium/Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Brandon
NOTES: Building Suggestions added into the download pack. The only thing making the difficult as hard are the claws, which actually aren't that hard, just very tedious. Also be sure to trim the 'mane'. The contrasting (lighter) white around the fur that attaches to the head should be shaped and trimmed.

Download: A4 / Letter

i see a random floating piece in the pdo what is it?

Anonymous said...

i can not figure out which pieces go where on the body...can u identify on the pdf which pieces go to which part as with the other designs?

Brandon said...

The floating piece could be used to close off the head so the head and body go together better, but isn't really necessary. I didn't use it, but it's there if you want to.
Which pieces are you having trouble with? The small black pieces make up the claws and go on the feet and the slightly larger black pieces are the spikes that go on the back of the legs. If that doesn't clear things up, I suppose I could label things.

Anonymous said...

it would be fabulous if you could label the parts...i'm having the HARDEST time figuring out which pieces go where... :/

Hannah said...

It's the body itself that I'm having trouble with. I just can't figure out which pieces go where. :/

This is the first papercraft I've done and I love it. Thank you Brandon for making an excellent rendition of Absol, you did her justice.

Anonymous said...

yea...these are great, but i really think you should add instructions to them

Anonymous said...

Ok, about the "mane" area: What's the best way to cut it? I can tell where to cut the back, but not really the front. And do you cut it before or after assembly of it? Thanks!

Other than that, the model is great, and awesome!

You guys never fail to impress me, let me tell you. I was wondering if you could do, maybe, Serperior soon? He's really cool and you have so many other good ones already (Like the Eeveelutions you have), so it would be nice if you did that. I can't be the only one that likes Serperior.

Chris Polak said...

Seriously? Claws are not part of foot? You could write it somwhere, i spend 2 hours trying to complete foot, then i said " ehh... whatewer" and when i connect parts they fit.... but there was no place for claws so they had do be stick on surface of other part. It is correct way or am i missing something?

Brandon said...

The claws glue to the foot but are not attached, correct
