Queen Chrysalis papercraft by muffinshire Queen Chrysalis papercraft by muffinshire
Fully assembled model of the final version of my Changeling Queen Chrysalis papercraft design. Printed at this scale (four A4 sheets) it stands approximately 20cm (8") high, excluding the horn and crown. This is an evolution of my earlier Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon models, with improvements to the shape of the head and the assembly (that pesky rump is easier now).



MLP:FiM and characters are property of Hasbro and Lauren Faust. Made only for fun and non-profit use, out of appreciation for the excellent animated show.

Update: Thanks to the efforts of Grandmoonma in correspondence with Calpain from Equestria Daily, EqD now has a pony craft roundup (similar to its art, custom toy and plush roundups), and this papercraft kit was included in the very first post!

Hi, which paper do you use? I'm searching for a good paper and i can't figure out which one is the best to build papercraft models. Glossy? Matte? Textured? Photo paper? 
Could you give me a little help? >.< 
(Sorry for my english, my native language is portuguese)
Thank you!

How do u print it out so it is the right color? I printed it out on normal, ffast draft, and best quality,and it's a brownish-gold. And the hair and wings are a neon green.

Having a colour profile for your printer helps. It's basically a set of instructions telling the printer how to use its inks to try and match the colours as represented on the screen. Google for your printer's make and model along with the search term "ICC color profile". Hopefully, you should find the color profile for your printer, which will be a file with the extension .icm. Once you've downloaded it, double-click it to install (that's assuming you're using Windows, of course). There may be several colour profiles available for different paper types. When printing, make sure the printer is set to use the appropriate colour profile (if you're in Windows 7 or Vista, the control panel icon Color Management lists all devices like monitors and printers and allows you to select the colour profile; if you're in XP, go into the Properties dialogue for your printer and select the colour profile from there). Sorry if this is a little technical, but screen-to-print colour fidelity is a complicated topic.

OH DIP.

Man, I've been waiting for this. Can't wait to get woorking on it. Do you use a different material for the wings for transparency?

Also: I printed Celestia and NM on a single A3 sheet. Will this model be to scale if I do the same?

Cheers,

EE

Yes, I used printable clear film for her wings. It was a special porous film for inkjet printers (inkjet ink won't dry on ordinary acetate film, and you can't put it through laser printers either). You could always just use coloured film for the wings and not print on them at all - there isn't much printed detail on the wings anyway, and it's not very distinct when it's translucent.

And yes, the model should be to scale if you print on a single A3 sheet. They're all constructed from the same base model with the same scale factor.

Hey Muffinshire, its me again. I know (now) that i cant use the models with comercial purpose, but i wanted to ask you for other purpose. My family is part of the chilean version from [link] (You can search "habitat para la humanidad chile" if you are curious) . I wanted to print a super version of this model (in a high quality A2 paper) and make a little raffle in the brony convention in benefit of this institution. Can i have your permission to do that?

Sure. The models are released under Creative Commons, so as long as you give an appropriate credit/source, you're fine to use and modify the designs.

Thanks! I see they put a couple of your papercraft projects in the roundup post on EqD as well. It's good that they're now doing roundups for the more esoteric crafts in the pony fan community.

Well, four really. Two are printed on both sides (and that"s optional - you could use black paper, a black marker pen, or just leave it white inside).

I'll make no solid promises, but it's pretty likely I'll get around to adapting the model into Luna and Cadence.

I saw "8 Deviations from Muffinshire" and was like "WAT?"

And then, I was assaulted by awesome paper craft!

Well done!

Fixed the rump, you say? I tried your other two papercrafts and just couldn't for the life of me get NMM's rear to stay together, so I'm excited to try this one out and see if you're right about it being easier.

muffinshire Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, that's always been a tricky part to get right. Nightmare Moon's had too many overly-thin tabs, Celestia's was fiddly to put together, but this time I've broken it down into more parts so you attach the legs before you form the top part of the rump. I found it easier on my own tests, so hopefully everyone else will too.
