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.
Step 2: Coloring and Features
Using the magic wand tool I select the inside and used a green I liked to fill it with the paint bucket tool. Then I created a new layer and began to sketch out the features on the face with a cyan color. Afterwards, I take the pen tool to create the line art and colored them.
Step 3: Eye
First I created the texture to the eye, But i had to remove it in order to fit cone in there. The cone shape is important it's angle allows for an optical illusion, but by it's self it will not really work it needs to be behind something. I can't show how i made the cone because I had a friend help me make it because he had 3-d software and I didn't but then we slapped it in to pepakura and we had are eye.
Step 4: Putting the Monster Together
first cut it out using any tool you want.
It can be tricky when gluing this together I recommend gluing the eye together then the little tabs on the monster, but not the big tabs and then slipping the eye in and gluing it down then finish up by gluing the big tab and closing up the shape. There are three lines on the side of the monster that is for the arms you can cut into them and slide the arm in and glue it but it is really hard so I glued them to the outside by putting them on the edge of the line.
And that's all folks
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
how to glue the eye??
The eye is glued into a cone shape with the largest tab, then the eye is glued to the body from the inside by putting glue on the small tabs.
This is AWESOME and so simple to make. Thank you for making it easy and available. Have a few questions. Does it matter how you place the eye? I noticed the numbers on the tabs but don't see a reference point for it. Also, I plan to make many for children's donations. I'm going to try to simplify it a little by making the body a cube instead of curved. Do you think that would hinder the effect? Thank you so much!!
The placement matters a little bit because you want the white circle on the iris to be 45ish degrees from the centerline of the monster in either the upper right or upper left quadrant ( look at the included photo). As for alignment of the eye to the hole its best to just eyeball center and get it as close as possible. Turning the monster into a cube would not hinder the effect (Another photo).
