Thanks guys! As far as I can tell, Darkrai was on a lot of Pokefans' top 5 lists, so I think you'll make many, many people happy. I'd like to see more Generations I and II Pokemon, too, but I respect that the team has a set schedule and I know you'll get to everything in time. :)

Darkrai is one of my favorite Pokémon, thank you very much :D

I'm glad that you make all kinds of Pokémon. I think it's more interessting if you make all generations at the same time than completing generation one first. :D

Hey, do you use the lined or lineless version? Thanx!

PAPERPOKES said...

it depends on who build it but we usually make a version lineless or with faint lines.

Anonymous said...

Do you change them to be fainter or do they come that way?

PAPERPOKES said...

Let's just say that by having the original unlocked files give us the means to adjust them as we like :P

If it's too much to ask, could you please do Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf as soon as possible? Those are paper crafts I've really wanted.
(P.S. A Lucario would be nice too.)

Hi, I have little doubt, in the part number 12, in Darkrai, I have no idea how it goes, please tell me how it goes?

Brandon said...

Piece 12 is the main part of the red collar, it forms all the spikes.
Here's a picture for reference.

Anonymous said...

This might have been asked before , but what is the most aesthetically pleasing manner to display pokemon which levitate, like darkrai latios etc

Anonymous said...

Hi,
So another "Anonymous" a few post up was saying he had trouble with part 12.
I know it's supposed to make the spikes, but I can't figure it out. Also, the picture Brandon posted is now outdated or something and sends me to a 403 Forbidden. If you still have the picture, could you post it again? Thanks.

I'm having trouble because its waist is very delicate.
Please help!

Brandon said...

Updated picture for the neck:

With the waist, just use scraps to reinforce the piece from the inside. Layered paper can be rather strong

Hi, I love your work and, this will be my first papercraft, so I have one question: Do I have to cut the pointed line? I don't understand, and with the normal line? Thx in advanced
