This is an animated papercraft interpretation of the beautiful illustration “Little Warrior” by Melanie Daveid.

My goal was to stay as close to the original as possible using the tools I am most comfortable with.

Paper for the model, Photoshop for retouching and color correction, After Effects to gently let the paper airplane spin around.
