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).

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…

Starflower-Bouquet

My internet still doesn’t work, but a friend let me use his computer. So there’ll be some new pictures soon ^.^

One Starflower

I played around with this shape for some time and here are some Variations of it:

I didn’t photoshop the color, I just used my colorchanging Lamp and this effect appeared ^.^

Sahnehäubchen I Big

Here are some pictures of my newest Tess. The idea isn’t so new, I folded it the first time some month ago, but it’s the first time I tessellated it and folded a bigger version ^-^

Out of a Hexagon (Diameter: 36cm) with a 1:64 Grid, the final model has a diameter of about 14cm, it’s very pleat-eating…

1. The unfinished model, with the hex twists squashed, but not the triangle twists

2. Everything squashed down ^-^

3. & 4. Finished model, with the small hexagons twisted upwards.

It’s up to the folder, which hexagon parts are sunken and which one are raised.

I made a partial CP and some explanations, if anyone want to fold it ^-^
