Frost Dragon - Viinturuth (Skyrim) Papercraft by DaiShiHUN Frost Dragon - Viinturuth (Skyrim) Papercraft by DaiShiHUN
I've finally finished with my 2nd build of my Skyrim - Frost dragon paper model.

(Yes technically its a wyvern ... take it up with Bethesda ;) )

This one sports new textures and a new more stable base, a ruined Word Wall. Height is about 45 cm with the new base.
It is also filled with expanding foam to keep it more sturdy since, as it turned out, the last one couldn't support its own weight.

Difficulty: (still) Very Hard

Download
[HERE]

Original texture and model belongs to Bethesda / ZeniMax.

Hiiii :3 
I'm going to make this for my girlfriend for christmas.
How long do you think it will take to make? 
Would the model be able to stand if there was no expanding foam?
How did you fill it with the foam? Is just the base filled or the whole model?
Thanks :3

Also, will just regular printing paper work?

Well it took me like 3 months to build.
Using 180 gsm paper it stood good for a few months before the legs and wings started to droop. but I made some internal braces that should help (they worked fine in my swarmlord model)

It's not completely filled basically there's a 1-2 m layer on the inner front side of the torso and in the wings and legs, just to give it stability.

If you are making the word wall it will be stable enough, the old stand might need some weights in the rock.

Merry Christmas

3 things.

firstly, AMAZING WORK!!!
secondly, could you do a retexture to make him look like Smaug from the Hobbit movies?
third, could you offer a pdf file for download?

thanks

Hey, could you tell me which type of paper and brand do you use? How much GSM? Glossy or matte? Is it textured? Please, answer me. Thank you!

180gsm Verbatim matte photo paper for the most part, for non-weight bearing delicate parts (empty hands, heads) 120gsm HP matt paper.

Thank you! Can i ask you one more thing?? >.< When you fold the photo paper, the ink starts coming out? Cuz i use glossy photo paper and when I fold it, the ink comes out. Another thing, the print quality on a photo paper is superior than the print quality on a normal paper?

Thank you again and sorry for bothering you (And for my english too, if there's something wrong... :D)

Yes photo paper is much more sensitive so have to use it with care.
In my experience the thinner the paper the better also matte photo paper is not so prone  to it. Also the glossy paper I tried so far tended to get creases really easy, plus you have to clean it of your fingerprints afterwards.

My understanding is that photo papers have an outer layer that doesn't let the dye seep in that deep into the paper, that way the ink do not disperses over a larger area thus the colors do not fade and mix and the dots are smaller, ofc this means that its easier to damage.

if you check my latest mass effect collection pic EDI is the only one printed on photo paper (the others are from regular 180gsm paper) and EDI does have a lot more vibrant colors because of it, also the printed patterns are much sharper, because of the higher DPI print.

... All that said laser printed templates are the worst of all, the paint just peels off on the folded edges T_T.

Sorry to bother you, but if you don't mind, i would like your help >,<.
The ink is fading from my papercrafts, black turning into brown, white turning into something like a pink mixed with white, whatever... The real problem is that the papercrafts are becoming ugly. Is there something i can do about the ink fading from the paper? Obs.: I use Glossy Paper 200gsm. I would be grateful if you could help me. Thank you!

Yeah that happened to half my dragon once.
Most likely its either of both of printing with bad ink and using bad photo paper.
In my case it was cheap photo paper, some1 explained to me that some chemical they use to make the paper can also react with the ink if subjected to UV radiation, and result in this discoloration.

You can try spraying them with fixatives that block UV radiation, but in my experience that just slows the process down.

Other than that I've rebuilt the models that showed those symptoms using better quality paper.

My Variations on a dragon pic shows the cut out discolored torso part in the center.

Hi!

I've tried all 4 files and they are fine on the server end.
Try downloading again, and make sure you are using the correct program to decompress.

So, to be clear, the base IS included in the model? If not then I'll have to make my own or stick it on my culturally neutral winter holiday shrub.
