691: (141/365) Max Hulme’s Chess King

Posted by wonko on May 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Head of the house, monarch to be protected, fragile and nearly the least mobile, such is a Chess King: I like this model, the crown is cute, as is his beard and robes – hiding the round figure of a largely sedentary piece.

Behind every good man there is often an even better woman: The Queen in chess is a valuable piece, being the master of all skills, often the most deadly of opponents.

689: (139/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Knight

Posted by wonko on May 19, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

…so, in a conventional chess set, the knight is a horsey, but in this chess set the Knight is the rider: Not sure I am really happy with this, difficult to tell with this thick paper, but the head shaping is clumsy because of the layers.

Integral to the war effort, the church remains a dangerous player on the board: This is Max Hulme’s “Bishop” – a lovely little Pontif-ish chap that is missing his golden hook and holy relic.

686: (136/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Pawn

Posted by wonko on May 16, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

The next few posts will follow a theme, playing with the idea of a classic game, this is the infantry – the cannon fodder, there are lots of these to throw at the enemy: Max Hulme has designed all of the pieces for a paper chess game, seems wrong to split them up. Folded from a […]

Struggling to make it through Friday, I stumbled across Sy Chen’s Hangman: This paper puzzle allows you to gradually reveal parts of a hangman, suitable for a table top game.

681: (131/365) Tim Rickman’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on May 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid, scifi |

I am so excited that there is a new Alien Movie out today – Alien Covenant. Although I would dearly love to see it right now, I will have to wait until I am less busy and tired: Having already folded both Kade Chan‘s Xenomorph, Fernando Gilgado‘s Alien and Face-Hugger I was struggling to find something […]

678: (128/365) Paper Ninja

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

The internet is an amazing thing, no sooner had I folded a model by Oriole Esteve, then he contacted me via Fakebook and offered me diagrams for a bunch of other folds: This is his Paper Ninja – a cunning little fellow that seems fairly stealthy.

Invariably they are interested in how their sons are going, how they went on the test and what can be done to continue to encourage them to give of their best: I actually like meeting with parents – they are great […]

660: (110/365) Riki Saito’s Alien

Posted by wonko on April 20, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

It is late, I am tired, the first week back at the start of the term is exhausting but this little alien is looking after me: Folded from Japanese foil, it compliments yesterdays model. Incidentally today is a few days after the 56th anniversary of humans in space as Yuri Gagarin first left our atmosphere
