I recently came across this nice craft/art site featuring a very popular (yep, I would say I was left behind this one)hobby. Dubbed as 'CUBEE CRAFT', it was a surprise for me to see hundreds of dedicated sites on this craft. I have been seeing these things before on some hobby shops and toy stores. I often referred to them as 'toys' before.
This post intends to open up the opportunity also to my readers of this nice craft. As of this writing, I am already planning on choosing the right paper/board to print my downloaded characters so i can start making one. I will add these up to my growing collection on my desk at work and intends to give away also some as gifts to friends.
One nice thing also about this craft is that most of the sites showcasing this art too always refer back to the main site featuring an exhaustive library of cubee characters. I find this very professional and indeed every artist owes it to the 'originator' and real respect for the craft, I would say is present.
The main site, cubeecraft.com features hundreds of various crafts which people can download and use to create their own items. I really like the concept that people can freely download characters and objects. It goes to say that the people behind this movement really want to share and spread the appreciation of this form of art.
On my next post, I will be trying to document/chronicle my making of my first cubee... One dilemma I am having also is having to decide which character to do first (teheee). Here are some of the choices I have downloaded:
|My top contender so far...|
|A Mario classic.. 1up Mushroom|
|From Adventure Time, Finn|
|Adventure Time character, Jake|
|Batman of the Future|
|Black Spiderman... Symbiote mode!|
|Domo kun ofkors!!!|
|TMNT Donatello -- Classic!|
|Doreamon!!! Nuff said|
|Another Classic, Kermit the Frog|
|From the Real Ghostbusters, the Marshmallow Man|
Below are samples of finished cubee artworks:
And to officially end this post, I would like to ask you readers, which character are you interested to be rendered in 'cube'? My next post shall be my showcase of my finished arts.
