A simple sticker variation of the Rubik's Cube. The stickers were put on completely randomly, the only consideration being that the same color was never directly touching each other (i.e., not on the corners).

Despite the day this was posted, this was actually finished February 20.

Pretty cool. I like cubes with random stickers like this.

That looks nice but it's not really the true Rubenking sticker pattern. All the corners on one are either normal corners or all 3 sides contain the split colors (there are 4 of each).

True Rubenking or not, it still looks pretty challenging to solve

I agree that it will be fun and more challenging. Anything that gives orientation to the center pieces is fun. Because of the way you chose the colors, are there any duplicate pieces?

Yes. The first picture shows that there are two blue-white edges. There are also two blue-orange edges and two green-yellow edges.

Nice! I think this should be sufficiently more diffucult than a 'symmetrical' version, with the duplicated pieces and lack of immediate knowledge of center orientation.
