Wishes (What I'm reduced to making during school) by minnichi Wishes (What I'm reduced to making during school) by minnichi
As the title says, I can't do much for art in the middle of a school semester filled with science and other horrors. Pulling out my clay and tools would be a taboo to my schedule...but origami stars? Those little colorful paper strips are always just sitting somewhere next to me. So every once in a while I just start to fold...and fold some more...anddd yesterday I reached 200 stars! Barely managed to stuff them in that jar. Decided to take the picture atop of my textbook since that's pretty symbolic of why I'm reduced to folding little stars in my short free time instead of sculpting.

Well, this means I get two wishes technically! One per 100 stars xP I should probably wish to actually survive this semester and then to have time to do art. Yep. Hopefully I can sculpt again soon T_T

And well folded too! Having the normal colored paper mixed with the colored foil creates a pleasant contrast, plus there is the added benefit that you chose warm versions of all the colors, adding to the visual feast.

Of course, I understand your reasoning behind it, but if I may offer my own two cents, I feel the background could be stronger if you chose a warm color, say yellow for example, and transitioned it smoothly into red or orange, these colors might benefit from being very pastel, having lots of white, as well. I say this because the light hues of the background will emphasize the hyperbright stars in the bottle.

Of course, I realize that this is a lengthy process, I just felt I should tell you my thoughts and design rationale.

Regardless! It is wonderful to look at, and the bottle of stars in and of itself, can serve as a unique artwork for every space it is placed into.

Haha, I usually fold origami cranes :meow: I think I'm closing in on 200 as well, though I'm going for 1000, which means I've got quite a lot left to fold... not that that should be a problem, seeing that I just started on a five year course in nanotechnology o.O

Col! (I wish I have jars like that, only thing I have to fill paper stars with are glass cola bottles...)

What you are "reduced" to doing actually looks fairly beatiful. Heck, i'd know some people who'd actually pay some money to have something like that.
