excellent works, guys!
I tried to fold a young cherry blossom but i need to re-thinking again on how have more leaf/flower effect & maybe work on tesselation to input cherry blossom flossom.
A lot of works, so.

I might join this challenge, but I know absolutely nothing about spring in Japan. Could anyone possibly give some topics that would work?

Same here. I'm not too sure about a certain subject i could do. Would it count if i designed an animal that is native to Japan? Like a Crane, Tanuki, Kabutomushi, Koi, Fugu, Snow Monkey, Japanese Macaque, Tokyo Crow... etc. ?

Google "spring in Japan" and you get lots of info on cherry blossom season, and temples to visit for viewing.

Very beautiful grass, snowblue. It's very sensitive.

Did it come from a rectangle, 8x8 grid, with one elias stretch?
