Dear fellow papercrafters,

As we’re sure a few of you have noticed lately, model posting has kind of slowed below the expected schedule that we have kept since the start. A lot has been going around in our lives and the situation has led the team to be a little low on time, organization and even will to go on lately... And sadly, after talking together, we came to the conclusion that it won't be changing any time soon.

Thus, after mutual agreement, we decided that we are not going to post models regularly anymore and also decided to take a break for a little while. We can tell you that there will be new models, just not when or how many. Of course, models already on the site will stay up and still be accessible.

When we started Paperpokés, we were a bunch of friends who decided to get together and create things solely for the pure enjoyment of making Pokémon papercraft models. As sad as it can sound, a while ago we lost track of those simple reasons and started to view it not as a hobby, but as a job, where we had to produce new stuff before each deadlines even when we didn’t feel like it. This situation pretty much made each of us lose interest in making papercrafts one by one…

Thank you everyone who encouraged us and followed us every Monday. We appreciate all of that and everyone who gave us the push to keep going for as long as we did. Without some support and encouragement, we wouldn't have even made it this far.

However, as we said, sometimes the responsibility is too much, and we can't manage it. It was fun while it lasted, and it did indeed last for a long time (4 years in December) but everything must come to an end.

We're just sorry it was so soon and abrupt.

- The Paperpokés Team

Everyone needs breaks sometimes. Your work is indeed amazing. I can't say I know exactly how you feel, but I've had similar situations. Make some once in a while when you feel like it and enjoy it. I hope you are back soon!

I'm really sorry...I'm not even a member of your group?
(I found this entry on your blog some 5 months ago)

You deserved a break, and I see why you would be tired.
And the fact that people kept bothering you to make new papercrafts and not even appreciating what you had already done...must have been really annoying.

that news explains a lot
let me tell you this
i think i speak for a lot here
you guys are really the last who have to worry about when you wanna take a break
you shared so many many many awesome models that i wonder that you reached that point not earlier ^^;

i had that point quite a year ago as people told me
hey do this, do that, build that

so i can understand you when you say "stop"
speially when that "hobby" is growing into a commitment

take the break
enjoy it and when the feeling is coming back
do something just for you
a model what you wanted to build
an easy one or what ever
it is just for you

and, even it sounds arrogant
don't let others dictate what you have to do
you are the creators :)

by the way
send brandon some greetings
wanna see him back at deviantart ;)

wish you all the best and hope to see you soon back with joy and excitment :w00t:

Aww, I guess I know how you guys feel. Sometimes you just lose interest in things... like when I write really long stories or fanfictions that never seem to end.

I'll still be making lots of your existing models.~ I'll just have to settle for a quilava instead of a typhlosion.

I can't believe it... Please don't stop altogether! I've built every PaperPokes model so far, and I don't mind if there aren't new ones all the time!
