Origami Creations - Grizzly Bear Versus Alien

Another fun and playful day today ... it's the Grizzly Bear against Aliens.

I have had this wonderful Grizzly Bear origami for a long while now.  It's another Quentin Trollip model which fascinates me because of its outstanding head and body shaping.  And more importantly, the details of the paws on both hands and feet.  Awesome!

Who will win this match?
Again I scrounge my daughters toys and check what I can use for photo taking.  Aha, this cool wired alien bought from a HK anime event.  Just the right paring.

Have a great weekend guys!

Origami Creations - The Tyrant Lizard: Tyrannosaurus Dinosaur

I seem to have been smitten by the T-Rex bug so I folded another one.  This time from my favorite japanese origamist - Satoshi Kamiya.

T-Rex Rules
Though this is a much older design, I still enjoyed the head and tail shaping for this model.  Compared to the Kade Chan design I folded weeks back, I admit I will still go for the Kade's as it is much more scarier :-).

Have a great Wednesday!

Origami Creations - Prehistoric Fishbone

An interesting model shared by an Indonesian ori-friend by the name of Hadi Tahir.  I have created one of his works before and blogged here.

Again, I am very much impressed with the smart color changing technique in his designs and this is one of them.

Cool stuff, huh?
Impressive, huh?  My fold look more like a prehistoric fish ... a bit scary but to me quite realistic.  Diagram is available in his flickr account here.

Hope you liked it and have a wonderful week!

Origami Creations - Growling Tyrannosaurus (T-Rex)

Saw an interesting video by the famous Hong Kong origamist Kade Chan on his T-Rex model.  I couldn't help myself to try making it sans the MC, wet folding and the special tissue foil paper.  I would really love to learn how to use those things to make my foldings alive though ... in due time.

Here is my rendition of this cool model.

Cool T-Rex with my prehistoric background
It's an interesting fold and I dare you try it.  There are 3 parts of the video and below is part 1.  The rest you should be able to easily search it.

Did the more famous dragon by Kade long before - Click here.  You should be able to find the tutorial for this model in youtube.  It's a highly recommended piece.

Have a great weekend!

Origami Creations - The Pureland Wizard

Saw and interesting wizard model by japanese origamist Hideo Komatsu which suits my taste - pureland/simple and cute.  Even more fortunate as the diagram is given for free once you complete a survey form.

This is the link on the wizard and below is my fold.

Pure and simple
The flow sequence of the fold is phenomenal.  Enjoyed it a whole lot and surely can learn something from it!

Hope you liked it!

Origami Creations - Endangered White Rhinoceros

The white rhino is the largest among the rhinoceros family.  It also has the best posture/stance among the wild beast in the animal kingdom.

This is one of my best loved design by Quentin .... here it is.

Scared Stick Figure Airmen
Time to dig out my daughters small toys collection for a bit of fun.  Got me just the right props - the airmen and the coconut tree.  

Hope you liked it!

Origami Creations - Lovely Pelicans

Finally had an opportunity to fold a wonderful model from my favourite vietnamese origamist - Hoang Tien Quyet.  I and my daughters fell head over heals with his famous swan piece.

Now, this is his pelican.

A lovely and elegant bird design
Quite adorable of him to make two (2) designs for a lovely pair.  

Hope you like this fold as my daughters do!  Have a great weekend!

Origami Creations - Japanese Tree Frog

In search of a challenging fold, I chance upon the Tree Frog by the great Satoshi Kamiya.  I had the opportunity to make a lot of his designs and so happy with the outcome on the Little Bird and the Lion.

This one is surely another cool project!

Shaping is tough but a rewarding fold

Really enjoyed this fold a lot but I would love to do it again with better paper for perfect shaping of the fingers and toes.

Surely want to try this soon!

Origami Creations - Little Cute Bird

So fortunate to have befriended a person who share my passion for making simple origami.  He is also a very generous person who shares his designs freely in his FB site.  The name is Shunichi Ashimura.

I have folded his works before and posted here.  Now, I'm doing his Little Bird creation.

Cool lighting makes Little Bird even more impressive

Quite impressed with his designs and so excited to do more of his works.  He actually has more new models against my limited free time to make them.  Hope I can have his speed and talent!

Have  a wonderful week!

Origami Creations - Teddy Bear & Border Collie

It's been a long while since my last post.  Had a wonderful holiday with family but I still had the time to do some folding of Quentin Trollip's model - the color change expert.

The first one is the Teddy Bear which was a special request.  It is indeed a cool design and enjoyed making it.  

Cute and cuddly Teddy Bear

The next one is the Border Collie.  Not quite satisfied with my shaping yet again still quite impressed with its color change for the snout, mane and tail. 

Added to my Doggie fold Collection
Lovely weekend to all!
