Face finished!

After another 12 parts (Right Eye) the face is finished ! The second eye was harder to assemble then the first one. I don't really know why, but when i started, 2 parts didn't fit together ._. i needed two trys though. Well in the end everything fits then :

104 parts... approximately 10 glue flaps each part...

the disaster in its pure beauty:

Left Eye assembled

This time 12 parts were neccessary to build the left eye. It was hard to assemble but the result was ok for me so i assembled it to the rest of the face, too. I printed the eye ball 2 times. the first time it was too dark. you couldn't even see her eye color. now its bright enough i guess.

I dont know why but i didnt work on Yuna the last 3 days. maybe i was not satisfied enough ...

oh btw the current progress picture :

it seems like u see every little fold and glueline but as a lot of you papercrafters should know, it looks smoother in reality.

Left Arm assembled

I just finished the left arm. All in all it was easy to assemble. I had a few problems with her wristband but in the end it fit.

There will be a longer time with no pictures now. Cause i will have to work on the face in pepakura.

So this is the current progress:

Left Hand assembled

I spend two nights, but it's finished now. Yuna's second hand:

I want to try to give a bit more detail to my posts.

So this is the left hand of Yuna. As you can see the thumb is far away from the other fingers cause the hand will hold the right arm when it is assembled to the body. The hand as shown on the picture consists of 36 Parts.

I will build the left arm tomorrow i guess. depends on the time i have in the evening.

Yuna is heavy

I weighed Yuna;
168 gramms... wow, and its only about the half of the model...

The Hips

I am working on Yunas hips currently. I really like these extra Shirt Layers :

Legs completed and joined together

Printed out Yunas Pants today , assembled them and added the legs :

(60 cm high)

With assembling new problems come up!

-Feet are not perfectly standing plane on the ground.

-hips need much support. i'm thinking about using paper mache for them.

The Difference !

Thanks to Fezco, for his advice to add "inner supporting areas" !

Left leg assembly started


i started to assemble the left leg. this time with textures and 160 gsm paper! it works pretty good. I also added inner "support faces" to get a maximum of stability to the legs. (they will have to bear a lot of weight at the end) :

Right Hand assembled

I decided to create the right hand to test out if all my work with pepakura worked. Here is the result:

Left leg assembly try

Ok. This was my first attempt to assemble yunas left leg. here's what i got :

(56 cm high)

Yuna got fixed

I had frustrating problems with yunas model when i worked with it in pepakura. So i decided to start again with the 3ds Max file. I fixed both shoulders, both legs and one elbow. now they are easier to assemble when the model is finished.

Picture of the fixed elbow:

First Pictures of the FFX-2 Yuna Project

This is my actual progress status of the 2d pepakura file:
(as u can see at the first 12 pages the legs are ready for assembly)

Finally after dumping, working with 3ds max and sketchup the model is ready for Pepakura Designer:

All possible Double Layers are displayed here and in the middle the main model is shown.
Looks scary huh ? ^^ :

The biggest problem ; the face.
Because of the high detail of the cinematic model it will be the hardest part to assemble i think:

When i am working on the face in pepakura i often think of the assembling process. I got scared when i saw the 1 or 2 mm thin pieces. So i thought :" why not trying out small parts?" and here is the first test piece of lower lips :
(I chose lips because they are one of the tiniest parts of the model)

(I think it works for me. It is tiny - yes- but it is possible to build...)

Papercraft: FFX-2 Yuna Model

Ok, this is the main reason i created this blog!

After building a few papercraft models (like bumblebee, Piano, Violin, Howls moving castle) I decided to create my own model. I watched the tutorial from kaizo and just started. I will post my progress here and i hope you stay turned for every update!

A few informations about the model:

-It is the FFX-2 Cinematic Model of Yuna. (means: i used cinematic yuna ffb as model file)
-I created the pose on my own with sketchup. I hope you like it!
-It will be 1 Meter high when it is assembled. (i chose that height because of the high detail)
