Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

I'm really starting to enjoy this place...
Anyways, when it comes to doing a custom for somebody, do you prefer to stick with the basic template and just add art, or do you fire in whatever you feel will work, even if it changes the model?

I've never done one (again, I'm pretty new to this stuff) although I have a half finished BOXY sitting in my projects folder. I'd like to try adding my art to someone elses model, but it's a bit intimidating. Any thoughts?

(PS, if this discussion is already out there, sorry, I looked but couldn't find it...)

I wouldn't change the shape too much so that it is not recognisable but you can add things or change the shape slightly. You can also try rotating the model. Or turning it upside-down.
Thanks! I'll keep those things in mind when I get around to trying a custom.
