Origami Creations - The Perfect Butterfly

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly.

Indeed, a thing of beauty is a real joy forever!  This is why it is one of my favourite folds.

Here is a design by the famous japanese folder Yoshio Tsuda and diagrams can be found in the 11th Tanteidan Convention book.

Simple yet perfectly beautiful
It wing shape is outstanding and this model actually allows different appearances and color changes.  You should try to make this model.

I've been tinkering on my very own butterfly model ... hopefully soon I can present one!

Enjoy your week!

Origami Creations - My Anime Fold called Lisa

This is my first extensive box pleating and shaping origami model.  It's and anime character called Lisa designed by Cheng Bo Xin (程柏鑫).

She's a great looker of a Gal :-)
My fold made the original model look older.  But I am quite happy for my first try.  

If you would want to try folding this, you can check the photo tutorial here.

Good luck and enjoy the challenge!

Origami Creations - Inside, we are All the Same

Yes indeed.  We are all the same inside.  The skull model by Nguyen Hung Cuong speaks for itself.  Irregardless of race, religion, social status, wealth ... we all look the same inside.

Cool model
I had to do a second try making this model because of the tricky folds on its teeth.  But it was really worth achieving success as it is an impressive origami design.

If you might be interested to try, click here for the photo tutorial for this model.

Have a great week!

Origami Creations - Most Unlucky Year in Lunar Calendar

The Year of the Rooster is said to be the most unlucky year in the Lunar Calendar.  Well, for obvious reasons, its nature when feeding is to "scratch the ground and peck"

Here is a origami artistic rendition of a rooster by the japanese Gen Hagiwara.

Cool geometric forms and color combo
It's a really awesome and simple looking model but quite an impressive outlook.  I am currently doing some of my own design and I hope I can be able to come up with better ideas.

Hello June!  Hope you'll be a kinder month for everyone!

I was trying to look for an inspiration for my next  ori-fold and came upon a silly image below.

It includes the spanish word "queso" for cheese and a combo word cheese + jesus.  :-).

So, a mouse it is for my next project!

Cool mouse
Here is the cool mouse model by the japanese origamist Gen Hagiwara.  A challenging and tricky model but  I really enjoyed its unique form and shaping for a standing mouse.

Origami Creations - Challenging Origami Bird Folds

I always encounter difficulty when folding intermediate model of origami birds due to its tedious pleating of the wings and tail as well as forming the claws.  These parts require accuracy to get the perfect appearance.  Other than this, you must have bigger and good paper.

Here are my latest bird folds plainly using Kami.

Mockingbird don't fly away
The first one is the Mockingbird by the famous Roman Diaz.  It needs some shaping to achieve an even better result.  Diagram for this model can be found in his book Origami Essence.

White Eye Birdie
The second one is the challenging Japanese White-Eyed bird by the great Satoshi Kamiya.  This one is a cool model with its bottom closed.

My bird folding needs more practice and I really need to consider getting good paper for better results.

Well, that is something I can look forward to!
