Friendly design and folding competitions.

Monthly Folding Challenge - December 2010

Postby Sunburst » December 1st, 2010, 9:09 pm

The topic for this month's challenge will be : natural environment.
Basically, you can make anything that can be found in the natural environment. It can range from landscapes to atmosphere, to rocks, to clouds, to volcanoes, to earthquakes (I really hope someone tries to fold this)... However, I'll have to make a couple of restrictions here :
- Nothing man-made allowed
- If you decide to make animals or plants, try to make them part of a landscape i.e. not the center of attention.
- And the usual one sheet no cuts no glue rule

Here is a model I have designed specifically for this challenge:

Geyser

firstfold will be the judge for this contest, which is the last of the year.
Everyone get creative and start folding!

Joshua, how exactly is that supposed to be an earthquake? It looks quite similar to your other models; are those also earthquakes?

The paper was too small and the photos were really bad, so thats why it looks rubbish.
I need to refold it with bigger and better paper
