Origami Creations - 2 Intersecting Pentagonal Dodecahedron

I have been trying to make the 4 intersecting pentagonal dodecahedron by Dirk Eisner but it seems such a gargantuan task.  For a visual idea of what I am planning to do, check this link.  

As mentioned here , it is my goal to be able to achieve this feat.  But, I decided to take baby steps instead.  So here is my 2 intersecting pentagonal dodecahedron :-).

Awesome, right?

Looks good as it is :-)
Next goal ... the 3 pentagonal dodecahedron.  Hope I can keep my spirit and interest high so I wouldn't give up on my goal!

Have a lovely weekend!

Origami Designs - Cute Baby Chibi Penguins

I saw an invitation to submit an origami diagram to the "La Revista Latinoamericana de Origami - 4 Esquinas" group for their upcoming book compilation titled "Plegar el Mundo" (Fold the World).

This could be another fun opportunity so I decided to revisit an old design of mine and see if I can improve it.  This was my neo penguin which I have blogged here. 

... and now giving birth to my baby chibi version :-)

Facial features and shaping updated

Looking cool among their chibi peers

So adorable <3
I haven't heard from them yet but I am hoping that my submission made it to the book.

Have a nice day!

Origami Creations - Where are the Clowns?

Two of the best origami clown mask was designed by the famous japanese origamist Hideo Komatsu.  Aside from its awesome color change, the facial proportions and shaping is just outstanding.

Check them out ...

The first design

Updated design
Both designs are cool but if I have to choose one, I prefer the latest one as it has a 3D nose and color change lips.

What do you think?  

Wishing you all a great week ahead!
