Ganondorf - The Wind Waker

   The King of Evil, the Dark Lord, the King of Darkness - regardless of the permutations of bad and level of rank, one thing is clear: Ganondorf is a serious badass!
   First introduced 25 years ago, Ganondorf has undergone several design changes, but the Wind Waker iteration has always been one of my favorites, so I felt compelled to take it to the paper.
   A few notes for building: When working on the head, I recommend starting with the eyes, then the nose and continue to build outwards. When you get to the hands and feet, you'll notice that they have pegs on the ends of them. These are, simply, to help align the parts when attaching them to the body. You might have to cut the openings on the body a little bigger depending on your paper weight ( I used 65 lbs. card stock and it was a tight fit).They pegs aren't integral to the structural soundness of the model, so feel free to ignore those parts when building. When you get to the body, it's easiest to build the shirt and then work your way out and downward.

The download includes lined and unlined PDO files,. Standing at 55cm (21.7"), this papercraft is pretty tough, but I hope you enjoy it. Good luck!

I now have lined and unlined PDFs of this papercraft. Unfortunately, I don't have any building instructions for it, but I've added edge ID numbers to help make it a littler easier. Also, because of this, the layout is slightly different from the PDO to prevent the numbers from overlapping the pieces.

Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule

I am pleased to launch my new papercraft site with the release of Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule, the King of Hyrule! Standing at 40 cm tall, the man behind the King of Red Lions comes complete with a monster collar, ready-made coat, and some seriously tiny legs. Some of the parts can be a little tricky to build. Notably, the face has a few sharp folds, the Triforce on the collar is quite delicate, and the lining of the coat affords little space to work with when attaching other parts, so just take your time and be careful. Also, while working your way down the sleeves, take care maintaining the shape. The download contains both a lined and unlined PDO file, the base, and a few more tips for the final assembly of the sections.
