Friendly design and folding competitions.

Monthly Design Challenge January 2017

Postby mitanei » January 9th, 2017, 9:08 pm

A happy new year to everybody and please excuse the delay.
I wasn't aware that I have to decide the topic for the January challenge (it's been a while since my last competition in a design challenge).

In sight of recent events, fears and worries that accompanied people throughout the last year the topic for this month is:

"Something Positive"

That can be anything that brings joy to people or provides a positive perspective on the world.

The rules are:

- one or multiple sheets of paper, any shape is allowed
- no cutting
- no glue (except MC)
- coloring the model is allowed
- multiple models for one entry is allowed

Shiba-Inu, folded by me from one sheet of tissue/kititaka. I don't have a shiba-inu, but my dog always makes me happy, and I am sure I'm not the only one, hence I chose to do a dog :)

Well, I designed and folded a very nice origami smiley face - just to realize that it was too similar to Jeremy Shafer's "Mr. Smiley" to be considered by own design. Same base - but I came upon it without reference to or even thinking about that design (which I have folded several years ago). I did manage to give him a nose, one thing Mr. Smiley lacked. But I don't think that mine could turn into all of those things that Jeremy Shafer's can. I also designed a sad face, and was planning on designing a whole set of emojis before I realized it wasn't even really my design!! So that was unfortunate. Maybe I will still come up with something more original before the deadline...
