I started to write this up when I first made it awhile ago, then went to something else and didn’t finish. Maybe I thought it was too odd.
This is one of my more obscure choices of model. In Terry Pratchett’s Diskworld Series of books, Death is a major character in a few of the books. In one book, Reaper Man, there are sub-deaths for specific living creatures. One of these is the Death of Rats, a tiny rat skeleton in a black cloak. I mean, he’s a normal sized skeleton for a rat. I just didn’t want you to think he was some human sized rat skeleton. All of the sub-deaths end up absorbed by Death except for the Death of Rats, who pops up in other books.
So I have a skeletal rat in a black shroud with a sickle. He has fingers on his non-sickle hand, and toes on both feet. He has a thumb on the hand with fingers. I realize rats don’t have thumbs, but how else is he supposed to hold his sickle?
I also tried to make the black show up at the tip of his nose to imply a nose hole and void space in the skull.
I made one of Satoshi Kamiya’s World Eater dragons awhile ago, from the crease pattern on his site. An interesting thing about this one is that quite a lot of the detailing on the neck and tail isn’t on the crease pattern. It’s pretty clear and easy to implement (although, I didn’t do it quite the same way).
Also notable: Kamiya’s World Eater looks imposing and maybe threatening. As usual, I’ve taken that and turned it into happy and maybe friendly.
I didn’t get the back spikes. I’m not sure why.
Issue 124’s challenge is Taiga Yamamoto’s Crowned Crane.
I like it. It’s most eye-catching feature is the crown. However, I actually like the tail feathers more. They really look and feel like a crane’s.
This is an odd one. Challenge #67 is a Steam Automobile by Morisue Kei. The crease pattern gives this:
And that’s as far as I went. This isn’t one of those I get annoyed at where it’s only made difficult because it’s in crease pattern. It seems like a crease pattern was the way to go, at least initially. This one needs something more to get it from the crease pattern to the finished model. Many of the lines in the finished model (like exactly where the wheels sink, the vertical and horizontal seat line locations, etc.) are not in the crease pattern and must be guessed at, meaning it’s not very consistent. It’s a good crease pattern (any more info would be a mess), but it needs something like additional diagrams to finish it.
