Another friend is That Andy Guy, who folded my “Tessellated Butterflies”, one of my newest design. The shaping and the picture is great ^.^

Jungle Challenge

Again there was a little tessellation challenge at Flickr:

http://www.flickr.com/groups/otdc2009/pool/

The topic was jungle and I thought a long time about what to do and had the idea to fold something like a pixel picture…

I started with a 1:128 grid and a more than 16-level-hex-spread (designed by Eric Gjerde).

Jungle Camouflage - work in progress

I used this as basic for a field of triangle twists, but I didn’t sqashed them all, only the twists which form the picture, in this case the snake, where squashed. As a small decoration I folded some flowers in the center of the model, they are really easy (6 combined hexagons).

Jungle Camouflage...

All together I folded about 27 hours… the grid was folded on many ways to my school, the hex-spread on my way to Berlin/Potsdam and home again and the final triangles mostly at home…

“Octagons for October” second part

For the “Octagons for October”-Challenge I played a little bit with my octagonal Sahnehäubchen. Here are some Variations ^-^


a), b), c) & d) With an extra Twist, now there are three levels of octagonal twists

a) The first and the third twist have the same direction. This one is folded out of a small sheet of orange glassin (15x15cm)

b) & c) A little shaping, both twists on the top have the same direction, it’s out of a small sheet of orange Tant (15x15cm)

d) The first and the third twist have the same direction.

a) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 3 Backlit

b) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 4 (3D)

c) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 4

d) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 3


e) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variation 2

Nearly the same as the original octagonal Sahnehäubchen (with two octagonal Twists) I changed the direction of one twist, now they are twisted in the same direction, and made some small variations at the center twist, out of orange Tant (15x15cm)

f) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variation 1

Again an octagonal Sahnehäubchen with two octagonal Twists (different directions), but with a wider twist below, out of orange Tant (15x15cm)
