Superbowl XLVI - An Unofficial Papertoy

In honor of the upcoming Superbowl 46, & the fact that I still had an un-customised Throwback template, I decided to do 2 customs, & set them head to head against each other.  One for New England Patriots & another for New York Giants.  Who will win the Superbowl, I have no idea, but I want to know who will get the most Downloads.
The big game is just over a week away, & I will be watching (timezone permitting) otherwise i'll have to catch a re-play.

So, time to take place in the Paperbowl, & see who will win the download championship.

This is not an official NFL or Superbowl Papertoy, it is a toy by a fan, for the fans.

Paper Street Racer Custom

On my quest to work through all my Blank templates, & make a custom of each one.  The next one up is Paper Street Racer.  I added the word street to the original name, because it was originally designed to be a street racer, & I didn't want it to be confused with the iPhone app game called "Paper Racer".

With that said, here is my 1st custom of the template, sporting the Killer Snake that I designed to be used as an actual Car Graphic.  The body is not based on any one car, I just shaped it to be a Coupe style.
As you can see from the pictures, there is a gap in the graphic to accomodate the Wide body kit pieces, but from a full side on view the image does line up perfectly.
The download contains an updated blank from the original version, & the Custom pictured above.  So you can build this model & then design your own by printing the Blank PDF, or using the Illustrator CS4 file to create a Digital custom.

Redheaded Monkeys T-Shirt Design

I recieved an email the other day from Liz Woodrow in Katy, TX. & she has started her own company, creating T-shirts with Rhinestone & Screen-print designs.  The company is called Redheaded Monkeys & you can go check it out & see if there is anything you like.

The reason for this post is Liz wanted to use one of my designs, The Peeled Heart, on a T-Shirt, & of course I was over the moon about this.  It is always nice to see your work used in such a unique way.
Thx Liz for using my Design & I hope it's popular.

CCG Deck Holder

Welcome to 2012, & the start of a new year of Paper Toys & Models.  With my Son getting a little bit older, I am starting to get a bit more free time, & have started to look at my Magic the Gathering CCG collection.  With the release of the Plainswalker Cards & the Innistrad Block, it is looking very exciting & I wanted to make some new Decks to play.

With new decks, I need Deck Holders.  Instead of buying them, as they are quite hard to find here in South Africa, I decided to make one, & give it a nice Papertoy feel to it also.
I've tried to give it a Steel Flightcase type effect on the skin, with an area for the player to write a description of the Deck inside.  This box will hold standard sized Cards from MTG, Pokemon, Moshi Monsters, etc. all kept in protective sleeves.

The legs are borrowed from Wheelman, as they worked perfectly I thought there was no need to design anything different.  The photograph above is actually holding a deck of Cards inside, so it will stand no problems when full.

Have fun playing & remember to keep visiting in 2012.
