This is a life-size statue of Link from Legend of Zelda made entirely out of…paper. Yea that’s right paper! Papercraft Link in his natural element, created by DevianARTIST Michaela. Below is the description:
Link is a life size papercraft model standing around 5’5. He is made completely from 250 gsm paper (about 4x stronger then normal paper). He has foam core supports in the top and bottom of his pants, top and bottom of his boots and a ring in his waist. There is also some in the back of his shield, and in the handle of the master sword.
Link is made from 250+ pages, the initial template is 198, but there are layers of strips of paper inside for support, and 831 pieces. I worked on him constantly for a month, working approximately 12 hours each day but sometimes that number could go up to 20.
Hit the jump to check out more hi-res images from her DeviantART page. Mean while I shall be sitting at home perfecting my paper airplane.
