Monthly Design Challenge January 2019

Postby Folderp » January 1st, 2019, 9:01 am

Happy New Year everyone. If you don't have a New Year's resolution yet, make it to enter more monthly design challenges. This one is easy so I expect lots of people to enter. The topic for this month is... Flight. That could be anything from planes to birds to flying insects. And yes, the topic does allow Dragons. I did that on purpose. The rules are: one square of paper, no glue, MC is allowed. Baltorigamist will judge. Good Luck!

Here is my rather unconventional entry, called "Fight or Flight."

Origami shouldn't have cuts, but this dude is ripped!

These two figures are folded from the same 47cm square of sketch paper. I used 52x52 grid, which ended up causing some complex problems. The figure at the bottom represents "fight," which is a buff man with fists in a fighting stance. The figure above him represents "Flight" (the whole point of the model in this challenge), so he has wings as if he is flying away from danger instead of fighting. More details and perhaps a crease pattern coming soon.

Origami Immortal Dream
Image
In this photo I tried to represent the dream common to everyone since birth: flying. To focus on the dream, I decided not to create a really existing bird but rather a mixture of bird parts (and not only).
hope you like it!

I could put in some of my new paper airplanes, but I don't think you guys would like them that much.

What I am entering for this challenge is just the "Cricut Cricket" from this game. EAch player has four of them and there is a larger folded version on the left side of the video. The Cricket is folded from one square.
I just got a Cricut Maker for Christmas but I made the original version without the aid of the Maker, I then went on to see if I could recreate the diagram for the Cricut Maker - It made reproducing the 16 Crickets in reduced size much easier. The game and everything folded in the video is my original design. Oh I did print the number on the cube (dice) before folding it - I created an easy to fold "Snap Cube with pleats and side locks" to make the dice. I think if you gambled with my Dice, you would have to quickly fold (Bad Pun). The black and white strips are just one rectangle of White on one side black paper using a color change for each segment.
