    Hello, modelling friends. This is my first time dipping my toe into a community like this; I typically work on little projects in my spare room at home, and have only ever put together two paper-craft models before. I produce found-art sculpture and collage, as well as pencil and ink illustration when I'm not working my real job. I hope to find inspiration and am always interested in seeing other artists work take shape. Thanks for having me!

    Hello prodigalsourse,

    Welcome to Zealot. If I may ask, what genre are you interested in? If you have any photos of models that you have already made, please post them (We love seeing photos).
    If you have any questions, comments, concerns, need help or advice, please feel free to ask and we will help (or at least point you in the right direction).

    Once again, welcome to aboard. I hope that you enjoy yourself here.
    I look forward to seeing your work.

    Sadly, no photos of the paper craft models I made; it was long ago, and my house was the epicenter of some pretty destructive parties in my late teens and early twenties... But I'll post some photos of my sculpture pieces when I'm off work tonight. It's all robotic figures/spacecraft from model kits and bits of plastic, metal and electrical components. Some are partially articulated, but none are "functioning" robots in the sense of servos, etc. Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

    That sounds very interesting. Please remember, don't create a gallery for these pictures. Post them here instead, please. ;)

    Hello and Welcome to Zealot! I also do a lot of "Found Object" sculpture as well as re-cycled art... Love your Gallery BTW ! as far as creating a build tread here... pick an area.. say Science fiction in Paper Craft and start a new thread .. add your comments and pictures as you build .. along the lines of http://www.zealot.com/threads/battlestar-galactica-viper-mk-ii.179852/ and you will be on your way. the Gallery here is for the COMPLETED views of your creations. :)

    Welcome, I have sent you a P.M. Feel free to contact me again. Glad to have you aboard. I've been to Central Ohio, beautiful country there.

    I just looked at your pictures on your album, you are more than a model maker, you are an Artist!! :):)
