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,, 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.

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. :)
