My recent Castlevania: The Adventure papercraft diorama came out well, so, I was eager to get started on another one. This time I selected a scene from the Snake Man stage in Capcom's 1992 Mega Man 3 Gameboy video game (original Japanese title: Rokku Man Wa-rudo 3, which translates to Rock Man World 3 in English--Rock Man is Mega Man's original name in Japan, if you didn't already know).

Here's the reference screenshot I worked from:





Mega Man vs. Big Snakey:

Dimensions:
8.4 cm (3.3") x 7.5 cm (3.0") [widest point x highest point]

Time:
Three days: June 3-5, 2014.

So impressed by the way you have managed to turn a 2 dimensional picture into a 3 dimensional model.  How did you know what the top of the snake's head looked like?

Just wonderful! I've been showing your posts to my 13 y/o, he's gotten into papercraft lately and finds your projects very inspirational. Nicely done!
This is the site he likes right now, he started out with the Origami Starwars series of books though, super fun.

@elderflower:  As it's a 2D game, there's no way to know what the top of the snake's head looks like, so, I just edited the game graphics to make something appropriate and glued that onto the head geometry.

@craftylittlemonkey:  Glad I could be of some inspiration to your son.  Tell him to pay attention in geometry class in school, that and drafting and wood/metal shop are probably the classes that gave me the most useful knowledge/skills for constructing/designing papercraft objects.

That web site you gave the link to looks cool, and I've seen some of those ready-made paper origami/model books too.  When I was a kid, we used to have these magazines that you could buy in the store with people, buildings, etc. that you'd punch out and then fold up into 3-Dimensional structures, which were great fun (I seem to recall circus and farm themed ones in particular).

I'll totally pass along your recommendations to him. He's quite the little artiste but only when it comes to things he really, really enjoys and this is one of those things for sure. He'll work for hours and days on a project so I know he can handle tough stuff if he's inspired.
He's had those punch out books of foldable figures, lots of tear out paper airplane books when he was younger too. I was talking about this series though, proper origami and some of it pretty complex. He's really into it, folded 500 Yodas one year, lol. Drives me a little crazy but then I think of my fabric and other crafting stash and, hmm, I know just where he gets it from Cheesy.
