Yes the eye will follow you around like a creepy painting; this was sparked by a dragon paper craft I saw in which the head of the dragon would appear to follow you no matter how you moved it would follow. I have replicated that with my slime monsters eye and I will be showing you how I did it. In order to do this included the blank model and the finished model so you can create you own monster with or without the follow eye. Please leave feed back and enjoy. I also made a video to show the following eye in action.

Also please comment if you have questions. 


Step 1: Designing The Monster

I had made a blank model that i have been using to create little paper craft dolls for a little while so i thought it would be okay for me to use it. I drew the tentacles with with a cyan color then used the pen tool to make the line art as you can see i did three and just made a mirrored 3 for both sides. you don't have to use the tentacles you can create arms for this your self by sketching then using the pen tool.
Hi the slime monster is good but could you draw the eye smaler, i made one and drew a smaler eye whith felt tip pens and it works better

<p>Can I get a template???</p>
Still passing this off as your own work? No mention of the fact that this is a complete rip-off of Tougui's work? The paper toy community is a tight-knit one, we're not all that fond of screwing over artists that are our friends.
Been a while, I know.<br> <br> Yet, I do have a life and banging my head against a brick wall until it bleeds really isn't a favorite activity of mine.&nbsp;Nonetheless, I just couldn't help but come back to this den of thievery and see if anything had changed.<br> <br> Ha! A site that only cares about content and clicks actually enforcing their own policies regarding theft?!?! What was I thinking!?!? Silly me.<br> <br> And, go figure, nothing's changed!<br> <br> This paper toy and the template of it that you can download is a blatant ripoff of someone else's work. Just take a close look at at the template and you'll see what I mean. Guy can't even properly steal someone else's work.<br> <br> So, you know...<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.<br> <br> p.s. Added an image of the ORIGINAL paper toy by the ORIGINAL creator. Just for laughs, really, since nothing's going to be done about it.
These are very cute monsters I have done a few for my granddaughters last year <br> <br>thanks go to both the original creator and to the autor of this instructable <br> <br>Jorge
I agree that if this concept was inspired by another artist that attribution should be given, right in the introduction to avoid any confusion.<br /> <br /> It is not a copyright violation to posting your own original pictures and text of projects based on others work, as long as it is not for commercial purposes.<br /> <br /> The best thing you can do is post a link to the original author's work here in the comments (leaving one comment is enough), showing people where it is based from. We can only take direct action against an Instructable if it has infringed on copyright (by using another's pictures/text without consent) and we are contacted by the copyright holder.<br /> <br /> Please stick to the &quot;be nice&quot; rule when leaving a comment.
didn't have a color printer, so I painted it. also glued on twist ties to the tentacles to make them posable.
Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.<br> <br> Sadly though, no one at Instructables seems to care. I've been in contact with them. They've seen all the evidence. And they don't care.<br> <br> Personally, I'd be worried about posting anything to this site only to have it copied and stolen by another user because, as this example shows, Instructables doesn't care.<br> <br> It's my assumption, but all they care about is content. They don't care about where that content comes from. They sure as heck don't care about enforcing their &quot;Be Nice&quot; malarky.<br> <br> Content. Content. Content.<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
Hello, and welcome to this week's installment of, &quot;Name That Thief!&quot;<br> <br> Can you guess who this week's thief is?<br> <br> He has an ever growing mountain of evidence stacked up against his FALSE claims of creativity.<br> <br> He spends far more time FAKING IT, than making it.<br> <br> He's NOT a french designer who goes by the moniker of Tougui.<br> <br> His overall writing skills should be used as evidence towards why every one of his former English teachers should lose their jobs.<br> <br> And, that's all the time we have for now; tune in next week for the exciting reveal!<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
Question, pardoning my bluntness, why does the eye look like crap?<br> <br> Answer, once more pardoning my bluntness, because you pasted it onto a template of a paper toy someone else designed, i.e. at least the first half of this project is a forgery, a lie, an act of deception meant to hide the fact that you didn't design this paper toy.<br> <br> Admitted, there's the friend with 3D software and pepakura and &quot;slapping it in.&quot; That would account for the pixelated, crappy look.<br> <br> Thing is, it makes no sense that someone who claims to have the skill and talent necessary to create such a high quality paper toy wouldn't also possess the ability and, more importantly, the desire to clean up that eye.<br> <br> Seriously, it looks like crap. The lines are jagged and there are pixel artifacts all over the place. Why did you mar your own, high quality design by &quot;slapping&quot; in that eye? (Not to mention, the placement of the eye throws off the balance of the entire layout.)<br> <br> You see, it's the little things that make this paper toy as good as it is. And, it's the little things that you show no concern for that reveal you didn't design it.<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
Okay, well... I think me brain is now broke.<br> <br> I found another photo at this link:<br> <br> http://www.nicepapertoys.com/photo/monster-by-tougui<br> <br> And, well... guess what?<br> <br> It's of a photo of the paper toy you claim to have designed. As before, it's EXACTLY THE SAME, other than the red versus green color difference.<br> <br> And, as before, it's dated before you posted your project. In fact, it's dated February 5, 2011. That's 6 MONTHS before the last photo I found and OVER A YEAR AND A HALF before you posted your project.<br> <br> How can this be?<br> <br> And, as before, someone by the name of Tougui is credited with designing this paper toy.<br> <br> Why aren't you?<br> <br> So...<br> <br> Can you please explain to me how, OVER A YEAR BEFORE you posted your project online, two different people were able to build and photograph the paper toy you claim to have designed?<br> <br> Can you please explain to me why these two different people credit the same person, Tougui, and NOT YOU as the designer of this paper toy?<br> <br> Can you please explain to me why you claim to have designed a paper toy YOU DID NOT DESIGN?<br> <br> Can you please explain to me why you went so far as to FAKE creating this paper toy with your &quot;original&quot; documentation for this project?<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
I'm confused. You see, at this link:<br> <br> http://www.nicepapertoys.com/photo/touguis-dirty-cream<br> <br> I found a photo of a paper toy that looks almost exactly like the toy you claim to have designed. In fact, other than the difference in color, red (the photo I found) versus green (&quot;your&quot; design), THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME.<br> <br> And, what really confuses me is that this photo is dated July 7, 2011. That's OVER A YEAR BEFORE you posted this project, isn't it? How can that be? How could someone build and photograph &quot;your&quot; paper toy before you even designed it?<br> <br> And, why is the photo called &quot;Tougui's dirty cream&quot;? That is, why is someone called Tougui given credit for designing this paper toy? Why aren't you credited?<br> <br> I am so confused.<br> <br> You say you designed this paper toy. You even provide &quot;original&quot; documentation of you supposedly designing this paper toy. So, why is someone called Tougui given credit for designing THE EXACT SAME TOY? And, how is it that they're given credit via a photo that was posted online OVER A YEAR BEFORE you posted this project?<br> <br> I know why and I know how. You didn't design this paper toy. You stole it.<br> <br> Now, I'm just wondering when something will be done about it.<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
<br> <br> <br> <br> Why does the majority of your &quot;original&quot; documentation reveal little to nothing about how you designed or created any of &quot;your&quot; toy and instead mostly has to do with you copying and pasting things?<br> <br> For example, why do you show us how to copy tentacles, but not how to actually create them?&nbsp;Sure, you go from a rough sketch to clean and crisp tentacle. Yet, what about all the steps in-between?<br> <br> For that matter, why is there a Grand Canyon sized gap in your documentation when it comes to how you designed the face of &quot;your&quot; paper toy? To go from that rough sketch to the finished face would take quite a bit of work.&nbsp;Why not document and share that too? After all, you do call Step 1 &quot;Designing the Monster,&quot; right?<br> <br> I think it's because you didn't create anything. I think it's because you actually traced the finished tentacle and the finished face in order to fake your documentation. I think it's because you didn't actually design this paper toy. And actually, I don't just think all of this, I know it.<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.<br> <br> This paper toy, both the model and the art, was originally designed by an artist known as Tougui in 2009.&nbsp;It was not designed by this individual. Only the eye illusion modification is his original idea.<br> <br> It saddens me that such creativity has been wasted on stealing someone else's hard work.<br> <br> Credit where credit is due. That's all I am seeking.
So, let's just review how not &quot;nice&quot; a person you are. Per the &quot;Be Nice&quot; policy you shouldn't :<br> <br> e. forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any Content transmitted through the Site<br> <br> f. upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that you do not have a right to transmit under any law...<br> <br> g. upload, post or otherwise transmit any material that would give rise to criminal or civil liability or that encourages conduct that constitutes a criminal offense<br> <br> h. upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that violates or infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of Instructables or of any third party (unless Instructables or such third party has granted you permission to do so)<br> <br> q. use the Site for any fraudulent or unlawful purpose or engage in any fraudulent activity or any other activity not authorized by these Terms<br> <br> IMHO, you've violated all of these by stealing this work from someone else. Not &quot;nice&quot; at all.
This is plagiarism. A blatant rip-off of Tougui's original work with no credit given.
Wow. It's one thing to post images of your &quot;creations&quot; and not give any credit, but to go to the lengths you have and show everyone how you &quot;created&quot; this monster is flat out plagiarism. Tougui created this toy, any &quot;schematics&quot; you show illustrating your work, is a lie, any mention of making the model, is a lie. How empty and utterly talentless and desperate for praise you must be to go to these lengths. <br> <br>You and others like you without an original idea are one reason why creatives such as Tougui have considered closing up shop and not releasing any more toys. <br> <br>At least you're not selling them.
I like how you modified this paper toy. The eye illusion is quite brilliant and well deserving of recognition. I'm even willing to bet the original designer of the toy you claim to have designed, one Tougui, would like it too. (He's liked other custom designs of this paper toy in the past, dating back to 2009.) Admittedly, I don't think he'd like the fact that you claim to have designed this paper toy yourself and have even gone so far as to fake these design instructions. All you did was change the color of the original toy from red to green and removed any recognition of Tougui from the templates. <br> <br>Seriously? <br> <br>The eye illusion is a great modification and you deserve credit for that. But, why'd you have to go lie about the paper toy? <br> <br>p.s. For anyone who cares, just google &quot;tougui template monster&quot; and you'll find images of the original paper toy.
Cool little monster-able! <br>What I've done is cut ping pong balls in half and paint pupils on the inside of them to use on portraits of people or animals for the same eye following effect. <br>The optical illusion works with any size half sphere really. <br>
yep it does i also did the same thing <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Scary-Eye-Following-Portrait/" rel="nofollow">here&nbsp;</a>&nbsp;with a potrait XD&nbsp;
LOL - This is exactly what I did when looking at the video - great job! I'd like to see one that looks like Mike off of Monsters, Inc.
:D thats a great idea i might do that XD
can you tell me how to make this I think it's AWESOME!!!! <br>P.S. vote for this!!!
basically all you have to do is print out the pdf titled monster then fold and glue but if you want to make your own monster then you have to get a 3d program and learn how to use it then get a program called pepakura which takes 3d models in to printable piece in which u cant print and fold then color and design in either Autodesk sketch book pro, photoshop, inkscape, gimp, or illustrator and then print it out fold it and glue it.
Great instrucable! <br>Ever seen this site! <br>You might be interested! <br> <br>http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/
Yeah thats what I used to create the eye with my friend who had that and a 3-d program. :D it's amazing
zomg this is awesome. Thanks so much for sharing this!
No problem I wanted to enter this into http://www.instructables.com/contest/sketchbookhalloween2012/?show=INFO last night when this was finished but the site crashed and i wasn't able to do you think that an exception can be made.
You're in luck, check out <a href="http://www.instructables.com/community/Contest-Deadlines-Extended/">this</a>!
ikr XD it gave me time to do another instructable <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Scary-Eye-Following-Portrait/" rel="nofollow">here</a>
Glue the arms first ?
lol you could but i did that last XD
Cute! The following eye effect is really clever.
