Took me about... Maybe 10-20 hours to do? I'm not sure. Anyway, this is obviously Mario. Made out of paper (actually, it's cardstock, but whatever floats your boat). Cutting wasn't so hard, but gluing up sure was fun. Especially the hat... It took me four to five tries to get the damn thing right.

As you can see, the feet are... crooked. Blame the awkwardly-folded legs.

And, uh. Yeah. Now I'm done, and I have very little to do now...

That's excellent. I don't have that kind of finger precision.

Massive bonus points for making the hat separate from the body!

Thanks. I used a toothpick for applying glue, and an X-Acto knife for cutting and holding hard-to-reach tabs in place while waiting for the glue to dry.

There were no tabs on it, so I didn't glue it...

Mario's head also had hair all over, so why should the hat be glued down if details went that far?

For some reason, it reminds me of that character Acmlm drew... Garpy.

Took you long enough, but that's really really good. (so far.) I made a balrog once.

So far...? Huh? It's, uh, finished. Thanks anyway, though.

Haha, cute. I had to look up what you meant by "balrog". Balrog from Street Fighter (outside of Japan) came to mind, so I got confused. A strange enemy from Cave Story... I need to play that some time.

It's probably due to the ginormous nose

To tell the truth, I'm really not that all patient. (See: Video games and trying to take shortcuts) You just have to be really, really bored... And maybe some patience.

I was just thinking about the amount of time it took me to do this... I started last Tuesday, and spent at least one hour doing this until today. If this is true, then I spent at least a total of six hours, and 15-17 at most. :|



...Wait. Garpy's that Mario look-a-like in the Acmlm's Board banner?

Heh, good stuff. I tried to make Mario out of paper-mache once, but it didn't exactly turn out too ... good ... at all. People with that kind of art skills impress me, heh.

No, but the Acmario is drawn in that style: Acmlm's uploaded/translated Garpy comics

Paper-mache's, from the last time I worked with it (some 6-8 years ago), not easy to work with. I don't blame you for screwing up.

That looks amazing. I can't even draw Mario on paper let alone make him out of paper

Great job!

Heh, thanks. That's a strange comparison, by the way. Drawing him is harder... All you really do is cut out the printed patterns, fold, glue, and assemble. It's just time-consuming and can get difficult at times... But I still think drawing is harder.
