23 03 2009

Just wanted to update with something interesting that looks at another example of the inspiration video games bring to individual creativity.

For example, Nintendo Papercraft is a site that catalogs papercrafts of Nintendo video game characters and objects found around the net that can be constructed by downloading, printing out and constructing the model. Below is an example of a finished model of Samus from Super Smash Bros Brawl found on Nintendo Papercraft in front of other papercraft models, including some from the series.
