I've been working/experimenting with a curvy papermodel

Because I thought it could be curvier I made an evolution version:

I'm not totally happy with the second model, but I've been working to long on it to just throw it away.
So I'm letting you guys/girls decide:

Which one is better?

Model #1

Model #2

and why is that model better?

@3eyed: I do seem to "care" less about the "urban" part of papertoys, and like to design papertoys for me.... (and perhaps people who like to build it). The models become more complex, and that will make it difficult for other designers to customize it, so I can focus on new techniques..

Everyone thx for the comments: I'm designing a skin for model #1 and will use the technique from model #2 for totally deferent design.

Go for the gut-feeling Matthijs. Sure, the first model is more friendly for fans, but sometimes you need to build one exclusively for yourself. Just to flex your paper-muscles. And I'm interested in the paper-folding-technique you might discover.

I think both versions are awesome, but if customisation isn't a factor, my vote is for #2 simply because of the innovative technique you've used. Neither should be thrown away!

@dolly: model two was the attempt for a resin model, do you really think model 1 is the best version for resin?
@jennifer: it's not an easy build, but the effect is stunning (I need to figure out how to use it in a model)
@methuup: that was my first idea too when I build the first prototype

Both for me, for the obvious reasons, but no.2 is genius. Like I said Armadillo Style.

I prefer #1 it looks better and easier to build

I really like number 2. :) Looks like a challange to make. ;)

I'd opt for #1, I like the simpler shape and to be honest I actually quite like the corners in paper toys opposed to the smooth curvier look in so many of the other designer toys out there. It'll make a stunning resin figure :)

thx guys.
I like both models, but for different reasons:
#1 is cool and easy to customize and is the closest to the sketch I made.
#2 is indeed a new method to create curves, but I can't get it to curve like the sketch I made. It looks really cool when you see it up close, but not for this model.

With this model I wasn't really looking for a model that other designers can customize, I just wanted to make a cool character and perhaps make one that can be made with resin.

I prefer 1. It will be easier to skin and I think, overall, it conveys a humanoid figure better than number 2. Having said that, the way you've constructed number 2 is all kinds of awesome :)
