Welcome to Papercraft Island


Paul Chambers just shared this GORGEOUS low-poly animated world. Check it out!

I wanted to share with the Blender community my recently completed low-poly animation. It started as an exercise to better understand the rigging and animation tools in Blender. It was also a fun opportunity to go back to the Blender Internal Renderer after most of my recent projects using Cycles or other similar global illumination driven renderers.

As the project progressed I also saw an opportunity to move from a pure low-poly look into something more akin to papercraft or origami.

During the course of the project I read through some great books that helped immensely and would wholeheartedly recommend to all Blender users:

You can view the video below, and I have other images and Sketchfab models from the project here.
