Number one: Who thinks an artist/paper toy maker should release a bare minimal (skin) or blank template to the community before they them selves make a completed skin for that toy?
ex: i have many blanks that i have made as i can make them faster...
Number two: If i were to set up a design/skinning competition for each released-would the prize of getting to name the original character and getting there credits plastered onto the blanks (after contest) be enough for you?
ex: Methup wins, names the character, and gets collaboration credits on the blanks...
Number three: Would you prefer to vote for the template that would be in the contest...or if i released a self chosen template every month or two?
Number four: HOW SOON IS TOO SOON FOR A PROPER CONTEST TO END? I know most of you have jobs or school and i do not desire a rushed result.
Number five: I have a template or two that will not fit into this...the one in question is needing a lil attention but when hes finished would anyone like to see a sort of bi-weekly releasing of accessories and blank accessories for this particular model?
In closing i have a mass amount of blank templates 89% ready (think teens) they are all my babies and i have put a great amount of energy and thought into each one.
They range from simple/easy to moderate in my opinion. Some have 2-3 pages due to size and accessories. Some glue some glueless. One of them has a way if 5 folds are made differently then a multitude of characters can be established.
These are hand designed (cut glued scanned) and then re mastered in sketchup then to pepakura and lastly into illustrator where i do a simple vectoring of each template.
Thank you all so very much for being so darn friendly and just downright helpful!!!! Ive finally found something I really like and a great group to share it with.
Any response or feed back is greatly appreciated on this-and i really would like the collectors down on this too.
