Introduction: The Most Basic Paperman

This is a really-basic paperman that goes arround me from the last 25 years.

I did it lots of changes, now it is a lot more complex, it can hold banners with messages (I always had one telling something, sitting on my computer's screen at work) and looks a lot more human, but this is the basics you can start with.

Just 13 cuts on the paper, and 10 creases, and it stand of its own or sits as a person.

It becames better with smooth shoulders (cut them quarter a square in diagonal) and with the head slightly tilted, but it means two more cuts and one more bend and now I'm talking about minimuns. May be other day.

I hope it makes you smile! Thanks for your time!

    I made it! it looks like I just took it out the computer! thanks infob!

    I like it, and as a stop-motion maker myself, I can see it does have loads of potential. :D

    However, I believe it may be better suited in the "Paper" category, under "Living". :)

    I will try to change it, if I know how.

    And feel free to use it, if you want. What is more, I will post a complete-to-date evolution of the dummy if you want to.

    Great project,
    just thought I'd let you know, I downloaded a graph paper template, filled in the
    squares with mspaint cut him out and taped him to my monitor at work.
    This was about a week ago. I've had him stolen three time's now!
    I guess my co-worker's think this is a great project also!

    The heighf of the dummy in the pictures is 32mm tall, 36mm long including feet.
    It works fine in plain paper up to double this size. From 10cm and up it should be cut in cardboard to stands up properly.

    I used 1/2 innch squares on grey heavy bond inkjet paper. last week left out 3
    printed templates. they Are gone but robbie is still there.
