Monbrey's "Paperpede" :544: Min. Score: 45
For starters, I won't bother to talk too much about your whirlepede's anatomy. Seriously, if there were
any discrepancies, it wouldn't be your fault anyways. Looking at the whirlipede, though, I'd say it's pretty solid.
The most interesting thing about the work itself is the method in which it was created- paper-craft. My papercrafting nightmare is the glue, and I have to admit, yours has no sign of stray glue anywhere. There are, however, some light edges to it (original paper color), which are especially noticeable when I zoom in. Some of the faces towards the top look a little bit sagged, probably because of the glue.
That's more of a detail, though. Speaking of which, I really love the edges of the antenna and "tail." It is the folds near the center of the body that look a tiny bit sloppier, but that isn't too severe. Of course, it does bother me a little that it isn't an original design- having modeling experience, i'd say a simple venopede in blender shouldn't take too long. Still, I understand if you don't have access to these recourses, so I won't consider that too harshly.
What I do consider a little harsh is that there is little creativity in the piece. It is set in your room, but that didn't stop you from maybe making some tall grass, or a little scene made of paper. Think of it- some simple grass with a printed out sign; "It's a wild Whirlipede!" It's maybe much to ask for the medium tier, although if it were a higher level, I certainly would take that into consideration.
Let's wrap things up. You made a papercraft, and that's pretty much it. It does look good, like well ironed pants.
Your final score is...
I thought to myself... hmmm, this seems like just enough, but then again, papercrafting can be very challenging. So, there, I think you did a good show to deserve your pokemon! Take that Whirlipede.
