Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

I was playing around in Sketchup to see if I could make a simple Papertoy to run through Piperka.

What I came up with is this:

Which might be a bit too reminiscent to Mark James's Cardboy, but I liked it. (The head leans forward a bit, and of course the body is different, but it's still a small body with a giant square head... :-) )

Something I don't like though is Piperka. The arms (Which are mirror copies...) were unfolded differently, the body had some stupid folds and the whole toy took up only about 50% of the paper, because of huge spaces in between. So, either I'm just being stupid or Piperka isn't all it's been made out to be...

Anyway, I printed to PDF and opened that up in Illustrator, redesigned the way the body shape folded and now I'm doing the designy bit.

I have 4 versions planned: A Black Ninja (see pic), a White Ninja, a Japanese kid (Maybe the Ninja's alter ego?) and an Emo-kid.

Any thoughts?

I like the Samurai and Shaolin Monk ideas.
Don't know if I want to head into copyright sensitive territory with a Dragonball Z character...

I love this asian theme!
Other ideas: a japanese samouraï/ronin, a orange shaolin monk, .... or SanGoku (of DragonBallZ) :D
