A papercraft toy of an Abstract Crystal. Being one of my first papercraft models, this little bugger was such a pain to learn and work through.

One night, I was sitting in my bedroom wondering what I could do in the next 30 minutes or so that I could start and finish, just so I could say that my day hadn't been entirely unproductive.
I thought: "I can do a little papercraft crystal! That would be quick and easy, right?"; NO. IT WASN'T. I had started at about 12:00 on a Sunday afternoon, and finished folding and gluing it at about about 03:00 the next day, when I had work in the morning. Oy.
Being one of my first papercraft models, this little bugger was such a pain for me to UV unwrap and fit onto the paper with effective surface area usage. I almost gave up about 3 times. But I wasn't about to see my whole day as having been unproductive, either. Oh no. I was going to have to follow through this time. This is probably one of the cooler models I have created.
