At first glance, you may recognize the image below as the popular PSO2 FOnewearl (Force Newman Female) character, Rupika (ルピカ)But look closely.

Yes, it’s not your normal FOnewearl fan art illustration…

It’s A FOnewearl Paper Figure!

This amazing work of art was created by a Japanese paper figure artist who goes by the name of Suiraku (水楽).

As the name “Paper Figure” implies, the entire FOnewearl (also called FOnewear in Japan) model you see is made from… yes you got it – paper!

The finished paper figure model is 26cm in height – slightly taller than a small soda bottle in size, as you can see in the image below.

How Was It Made?

Suiraku (the creator of the FOnewearl paper figure) has documented the entire creation process on his website, Moe Kami.

The process can be briefly summarized as follows.

1). Create A 3D Model In “Pepakura” Software

First, the figure is rendered as a 3D model using a software called Pepakura (ペパクラ).

2). Print Out Paper Figure “Parts” On Paper

Basically, Pepakura lets you design 3D figure models on the computer, which can then be printed out on paper.

The completed 3D model is actually created by putting together various other smaller “parts” – which you can design within the software.  A full model can take up to several dozens to hundreds of “parts” to complete, depending on the level of detail you desire.

3). Cut Up Printed “Parts” And Assemble Them Into Full Paper Figure Model

You can then cut up the printed paper figure “parts” and assemble them into a full paper figure model – just like the 3D model you created.  How cool is that?
