I was browsing randomly and stumbled across this. Then I thought, wouldn't a pixel version of this be great?  We could build little pixel toy packs in a variety of sizes and make it a community collaboration.  

If someone wants to make a decent template, go ahead, I'll put it in this post for you.  (An unfolded pixel template should be made, and to show off your unfolded template, a folded template).   That may sound confusing but basically, you have a folded and unfolded version. The unfolded version would have to be able to be printed off and actually made into a little toy.

Here's an example of an unmade and made.


The top is unmade and the bottom made.

You mean we would pixel, then print and fold? We could also pixel, then map onto superlowpoly 3D models that are reconstructions of the paper ones.

My understanding was juts pixeling but I really am not sure. The description was a bit vague... Are we supposed to make a template for a folded flatpack or an unfolded version? Elaboration would be nice if this is to go anywhere.

I love making these things. We had a bunch of links in the OT thread with bots, anime girls and Nintendo characters.

They look great and I really think that there could be some cool and very creative ones made. 

EDIT:

That and it helps get pixels off of the screen and into life...

I like this idea.

EDIT: Maybe they should be made smaller than what the final version will be, and then enlarged.  That way it would be easier to get the measurements right and will emphasize the fact that they are made with pixels after they are printed.
