They're NOT Kissing by LockeEx They're NOT Kissing by LockeEx
Origami is a fun hobby. When you get bored of it though, what do you do? You make origami in a 3D modeling program. Fold by fold.

After this momentous achievement, you decide to show the render to your friend, and what does he say? "They're Kissing" Well they're NOT, but when you try to fix it so that it looks less like they're kissing, and he says "They're still kissing". Then you decide to post the render on deviantArt. If you don't see what I'm talking about... good. Life is good. It's better that you don't know. Otherwise... make of it what you will.

Made and rendered in Blender 2.5

Vector art made with Blender's particle system.

Did you actually make a piece of paper in Blender and fold the origami crane from that?

Looks great!

Haha, yeah. I started from a plane and added edges wherever I needed to make folds. Thanks a lot for the comment and the :+fav:. Do you use Blender?

I use Blender. I have just started learning it. I have modeled
a couple of things but nothing significant. Right now I am
working on making a building and will start making my own
figures.

At some point I will do my own origami crane.

Haha, cool. Here's some advice though. If you're making something rather complicated, every once in a while, or before you do something risky, duplicate in-progress versions of your objects (Shift-D in object mode) while you're modeling and move them to separate layers (M in object mode). Once you do that, save so that you have backups of what you're modeling in case you mess up. I probably did that half a dozen times while I was modeling the crane. What's cool though is that now I also have 3D versions of the intermediate folds and I can put them side-by-side to show the progress, almost like a folding diagram for a real origami crane.

I hope you have fun with Blender!

Thanks for the advice. Last night I had to rebuild
a part of the building I was working on because I
didn't save a previous version of it.

Have you tried the new 2.5 versions?

Yeah, I'm using 2.50 for everything now.

I heard there is some stuff that you can't do in 2.5 that you can do in 2.49.

Like what? If it's not something you use, it shouldn't be that big of a deal. Plus, there's probably stuff in 2.5 that you can't do in 2.49.
