Hi, everyone! Yeray here.

I'll start this section by featuring the work from possibly my favorite papertoy designer. Alex Gwynne is a toy designer based in Sheffield, UK, with around a decade of experience designing paper models and toys. Not only does she have a ton of technical talent (her layouts are an engineering delight) but a lot of graphical expertise as well. She's relatively unknown yet, which I find baffling.

Anyway, Alex posts her work on her website, http://folduptoys.com/, and most of them are downloadable for free, like this Guardian from the latest Zelda game:

There's some exclusive models she makes for those supporting her work on Patreon. The exclusive models are usually bigger and more complex, and they tend to have interesting engineering. https://www.patreon.com/folduptoys/

Hope you like them! :D

Hi Yeray!

That look great. I love the design and the artwork. I’m going to build one myself soon and will share it here. :)
