Ok, I gave it a shot. This is my first tutorial, and it is the first model I really memorized. The flapping crane. This will be followed by the other two when have a chance to sit down with photoshop some more, so for now just be patient and have fun with this one.
This is also the first set of pictures took with my new camera, so I'm sorry if the pictures are all a bit fuzzy. Still learning the settings. Finally found the macro feature towards the end, but I wasn't about to reatake all the shots. Call me lazy if you want.
And have I mentioned that I'm not really much good with photoshop?
If any of the steps are unclear just tell me and I'll try to explain further. Usually I don't explain with writing, but by showing in person, so this was a hell of an excercise for me.
if for some reason it doesn't want to show a thumbnail: the picture is there, just fullview it.
This is the crane that glides like a paper airplane. It is the most difficult of the three since the squash fold is not a straight...asymmetrical?...one. If it doesn't work for you then just ask me and I'll see where your problem is.
This is the tutorial I put together for the Six Intersecting Stars (also known as Modular 20 in my gallery). I apologize if any of the steps are a bit confusing, but I don't really knwo how to explain this very well. a lot of trial and error on your part will be required. A LOT! On the other hand, at least you have refferance pictures. I didn't. anyhow, hav fun with it!
(Also, I really don't care about typoes. Let it go. If you are goign to critique it, then go ahead and mention them.)
Crease pattern for the module: [link] (I didn't invent it. I'm only explaining how to do it!)
Done in Photoshop. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or send me a note, id be happy to answer if I can.
This is how you do the basic laying down of the colors. MAKE SURE TO USE A NEW LAYER FOR EACH COLOR/SHAPE. It makes it soooo much easier if you do. Groups are very useful if your doing a massive picture.
The next tutorial will go more indepth on how to do details and such.
My own idea. Examples of this technique: [link] , [link] Sorry for mistakes in text - my english is poor... Effects of experiments (eg. gold paper as background, different widths of borders etc.) may be interesting... If you use this technique in your deviation - please let me know (ev. give link to this page in comment - for others to free use), I hope to see (and admire) your "quasi stained glass"
a suggestion that i wanted to post up, since there is no tutorial i decided to make it hope u can make a good bracelet, post image once your done to learn how to make the little stars here is a tutorial that i made [link]
