Big Indy Papercraft by chalicothere Big Indy Papercraft by chalicothere
I decide to make a papercraft of my Indricotherium character, and a really large one too. He's 23" tall and 25" long. Perhaps if I get more space, I will remake him even bigger than this. I have him available for download if you have photoshop, .rar opening software, and a desire to build him too. Hyaenodon not included.

The diffictlty rating is 6/10. Overall, I found him to be a fun challenge, especially for those who have been building papercrafts a long time. The hardest part is dealing with his size and the fact that this requires tremendous amounts of ink.

This is the first papercraft I have that was completely designed in every way by me. It will not be the last.

I can't seem to open the papercraft even though I've downloaded the file. I have RAR, what else do I need to do?

Really? It worked just fine for me. Try right clicking on the .rar you downloaded with your mouse and see if you get an option to open the file. There should be two files if you've opened it. A jpeg of this image, and the psd containing the pattern and instructions. That's about all I can tell you, so I hope it helps.

It came through OK. I didn't realize that there were the layers in the image, I was trying to open the text image.

That's good to hear. Yes, there are many layers in all the papercraft projects I make, which is why photoshop is a necessity. I hope you've got it all figured out.

I'm curious. Does it work like photoshop?

GIMP is great, it has most of the functions of photoshop (with a few exeptions). I find it easy to navigate, but the lay-out is very different to photoshop. But what I really like, is that it is a free "educational software" download, but the final product is professional.

"The Trinity of Christ"
"The Word is Optimus Prime/Megatron"
"The Deal"
"The Quest - colourized"
"Aotearoa, New Zealand"
"Game Over/The End" all were developed using GIMP, and all my ASCII Art images and my spacial frequency images were enhanced using GIMP.

Sounds very cool. It's definately nice for people to have a good free option to photoshop. How does my papercraft print out with it? Did you have to adjust it much (I'm curious because I wrote instructions only for photoshop)?
