881: (331/365) Nativity Scene

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

People I work with know my OCD tendencies. When it was casually suggested that I might consider folding a Nativity scene for the end of year celebrations, it was a forgone conclusion that I would: The assembled figures (each nearly 30cm tall) form quite a striking display – hopefully one that works for the display […]

880: (330/365) Seated Mother

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the challenge to render a more feminine figure, seated, as if tending something was on: Using a variation of the generic judaian I managed to change the head, add knees and change the posture so sitting is suggested.

877: (327/365) Generic Judaian

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

…now when you want to fold someone from ancient Jerusalem, the options are few and far between. I stumbled across a design, again by Max Hulme, that will, with modification, do nicely: My generic Judaian is wrangled from a 50cm square of thick Kraft paper, and ends up being about 25cm tall all up.

876: (326/365) Angel

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

Cruising around the internet, as one does, I stumbled across a thumbnail graphic of a diagram that appears somewhere else and sort of just worked it out: This is loosely based on an angel design by Max Hulme.

740: (190/365) Rubic’s Cube

Posted by wonko on July 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry, wtf |

Long before there were “fidget spinners”, Pokemon and “Pogs” there was a craze that swept me away when it first hit the market. A Hungarian designer called Erno Rubic devised a cube, subdivided up into 3x3x3 cubies that all slid on each other in layers: I instantly had to have one (well, in truth I […]

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.

690: (140/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Queen

Posted by wonko on May 20, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

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.

688: (138/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Bishop

Posted by wonko on May 18, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

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.

687: (137/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Rook

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Many battles need castles, chess is no exception: This is Max Hulme’s Castle, one of the few in his series folded from a square and fairly recognisable at a turret.
