Attack on Titan 3-D Paper Diorama

In preparation for Taiyou Con, I created this 8x8 3-D paper craft of Eren from the anime, Attack on Titan. The background was a pain to cut, but I think it turned out great.

FLCL (Fooly Cooly) 3-D Paper Dioramas

My favorite show of all time is the 6 episode long anime, FLCL.  I first saw it in college and I've watched it countless time.  Each time I watch it, I notice more and more.  These two 3-D paper dioramas feature Naota holding Haruko's bass guitar after the climactic battle.  And yes, I watched the entire series when making these pieces.



This 8x8 piece is made of five layers each separated by 3 layers of illustration board for an extreme 3-D effect.  I hid the Takkun, the cat, in the top layer and I added the Medical Mechanica building to the bottom layer.


This 6x8 piece features a larger Naota in one layer which is raised by three layers of illustration board.  It is a combination of my silhoutte and 3-D diorama work.

Reading Girl 3-D Paper Diorama

Along with the Minecraft and Dory pieces, I was commissioned to create this reading inspired 6x8 3-D paper diorama.  It features the likeness of the customer's daughter enjoying her favorite pastime, reading.  I added the swirls in the background to add a sense of whimsy to the piece.


Minecraft 3-D Paper Diorama

I recently made two of these 6x8 Minecraft 3-D paper dioramas.  One was for a commission and the second was for my Game On Expo appearance.

Dory 3-D Paper Craft

This 8x8 3-D paper craft commission features Dory from the Finding Nemo film franchise.  Sometimes I hide nerdy references in the pieces I make; can you find it?

Elfen Lied 3-D Paper Diorama

I have been planning this one out for a while now and I am so happy with how it turned out! This 8x8 paper diorama features Lucy from the anime, “Elfen Lied.” I combined two different reference photos and had to design her hair pretty much from scratch. If you are ever interested in watching the series though, know that it is one of the heaviest animes I have ever watched; definitely not for kiddos or anyone with a weak stomach.



Sailor Moon 3-D Paper Diorama

Here is an 8x8 3-D paper diorama featuring the titular character from Sailor Moon.  The moon is cut into the background and Sailor Moon sits seven layers above it.



Sailor Moon Silhouettes

Here are two hand cut silhouettes featuring Sailor Moon.  I have 5x7 and 8x10 versions of this style in both black and yellow.

Sans from Undertale 3-D Paper Diorama

Since I have a booth at the the Game On Expo in August, I decided to make this Undertale 8x8 3-D paper diorama features my favorite character, Sans with Toriel's delta rune. My wife has been obsessed with Undertale after downloading it on Steam and watching the Game Grumps play through it.  This piece was a ton of work... a Skele-Ton!




Along with the larger piece, I made this smaller 6x8 3-D paper diorama.  Seeing it fills you with determination



My Neighbor Totoro 3-D Paper Diorama

I am hoping to attend one of the local Anime conventions so I am building up a stockpile of iconic Anime art.  This piece is one of my most ambitious 8x8 3-D paper dioramas I have made.  It recreates the theatrical poster for the animated feature My Neighbor Totoro.  I worked hard to line up the raindrops to the characters and added droplets splashing off of each surface and character.


Trogdor the Burninator 3-D paper diorama

This 6x8 3-D paper diorama shows off my skills of an artist.  Notice the "S" and the more different "S" that form the body.  Appreciate the consummate"V"s for his scales and how his one beefy arm comes out from the back of his neck.  Also, I added wings to make him a wingaling dragon!

If you have never watched the "Trogdor" episode from Homestar Runner, watch it now!


Game Grumps 3-D Paper Diorama

I love watching the Game Grumps on Youtube and I bet some lovely at the Game On Expo will get a kick out of this 6x8 3-D paper diorama!
