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:

More photos/information:

Cardboard, game graphics printed out on white paper, white glue, newsprint, permanent marker, and a wire twist tie (mounts for floating elements only).

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

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?

@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).
