22.5deg Insect Challenge?

Postby Baltorigamist » January 19th, 2017, 8:13 pm

This is just an idea I had recently--what about a challenge for designing realistic insects using the 22.5-degree technique? I'm sure it's harder than it sounds, though I know a few designers have succeeded in the past.

RULES:
One uncut square
No glue (MC for shaping is allowed)
No coloring the model--any color changes must be genuine

Would anyone be interested?

I'm interested, although I can't guarantee I'll come up with anything. :)

Alright, good to hear.
I'm working on two of them myself, so those will be posted once I finish folding them.

The only question now is whether there should be a deadline. I'm thinking not because it's so difficult.

Forgive the double post, but I finally finished the first model. I can't embed the picture from my ipod, but it's here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/baltofolder/33862441362/

If anyone's able to come out to CenterFold this year, I'm planning on teaching it.
