Monthly Design Challenge August 2019

Post by Sunburst »

This month's topic will be this picture:

Image

You can find the image in it's original size here. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to retrace the author.

Basically, create a model that's related to this image (make sure to check the original size to see all the details). Interpret it however you want. Open your mind, be crazy!
Rules: 1- no rules.

lienquocdat will be judging this month's design challenge. Good luck!

Since I like to find stuff, for those who are interested, the picture is apparently called Path Of Spawn and is made by Michael (Vioxtar) Efraim.
The DeviantArt of the creator can be found here: https://www.deviantart.com/vioxtar/art/ ... -636476253
It also contains a reference to a making of video on youtube and an imgur album with some additional details as well.

Nice topic, good luck to all :).

Ooh, thank you very much, FlareglooM! I have no idea how you found the source of the image, but it's very welcome as the image is in even greater resolution. After visiting the author's gallery, I still think the picture that's the theme for this month is his most interesting one.

I know I said I'd try thinking of something, but I'm busy with my book. I'm making a few exclusive models for that, but none of them match the topic

Yeah, it's a pity it didn't get some more participation. Where's lienquocdat? I'm suspecting he isn't planning on visiting the forum that frequently. Can someone please contact him, for example through Facebook? I don't really have a Facebook profile.

https://www.facebook.com/lienquocdat

By the way, I made my fold from a 10.8 x 10.8 cm (4 1/2 x 4 1/2 in) sheet of "common color paper", although it didn't really feel like common color paper. It was a pain to cut! Folding it felt more like colored newsprint :(.

In the case he doesn't reply, I propose that the winner of this month (Gerardo of course) gives this month's theme in addition to october's.

I understand origami_8 is currently occupied, so I'd say Baltorigamist is in charge and is the one that should make this type of decisions. Baltorigamist, do you agree with Sunburst's proposal?

I would agree, yes. If you want to host an abbreviated challenge, go ahead.
The other option is that we suspend the challenge for this month (since we’ve already lost about 4-5 days) and simply pick up next month, but that might not be ideal. It’s up to you.
After the fall, we rise.

lienquocdat didn't answer your message?

If that's the case, I'll start the challenge in around 10 hours from now.
