454: Unryushi Darkness Dragon 2

Posted by wonko on September 3, 2013 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy |

I was given a beautiful sheet of Unryushi tissue by a friend. The arrangement (in case YOU want to take part also) is if you give me nice paper, I will make you something out of it. I prepared the paper by Methyl Cellulosing it to a clean window: This make it crisp and strong, […]

449: Chuka Ryu

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2013 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile, wtf |

I stumbled across low res hand-drawn diagrams of a Ryu (Chinese dragon) and with a cursory glance said “why not give that a go”: Two weeks later and a whole bunch of improvising helped me realise that may not have been a wise choice but I have something that is at least based on Hoang Trung […]

445: Mother of Dragons

Posted by wonko on July 10, 2013 in dinosaur, fantasy |

I was paper shopping, as you do (my daughter calls me a paper nerd) and stumbled across a hand-made sheet of blue embossed Lotka that reminded me of dragonscale: She who must be obeyed (SWMBO), an avid gamer and tamer of Dragons, had asked for a dragon so I put 2 and 2 together and […]

442: Ryuzin 1.0

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2013 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryuzin series is legendary in the Origami Community. Starting at the relatively simple 1.0 (folded here),  the next iteration is 2.1 culminating in the insane 3.5: Whilst I am not sure I have the time nor skill to even attempt 2.1 (let alone 3.5), my attempt at 1 is chronicled here. After finding […]

415: Smaug the Golden

Posted by wonko on November 22, 2012 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

I have been looking for a nice dragon, you know, in celebration of the forthcoming release of “The Hobbit” (being a bit of a fan): I saw a coloured/cut version of this dragon on Deviantart and thought it worth trying, turns out it is a WIP from Tadashi Mori, who released a video of how […]

412: Satoshi’s Coelophysis

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2012 in dinosaur |

I have many designs for dinosaurs, few more elegant that the Coelophysis designed by Satoshi Kamiya This raptor has a marvellous stance, gracious body proportions and a menacing appearance – quite a feat given it started as a square cut from A3 copy paper. A very well designed model indeed, quite dense in places but very economical with […]

“Rexy” Revisited

Posted by wonko on January 25, 2012 in blarg, dinosaur |

You _may_ remember I folded a TRex Skeleton a while back, and I am pleased to say he finally has a new home: As part of a science display, outside a science lab, he is now resplendant, mounted on a dowel with fishing wire (go team), he looks mean and hungry. The display contains some […]

352: Satoshi’s Ancient Dragon

Posted by wonko on December 18, 2011 in dinosaur |

Some folds are good for telling you that you still have much to learn – this is one of them: An ASTONISHING model, that took me an age to almost achieve, so many different techniques and punishing to the paper. I started yesterday morning with a 60cm square of brown paper determined to keep folding […]

348: T-Rex Skeleton

Posted by wonko on December 14, 2011 in dinosaur |

This is nuts, seriously NUTS. I started this model 2 weeks before exam block, and have been chipping away at it ever since: This monolithic modular is Yoshino’s T-Rex Skeleton and I for one am totally impressed with the attention to design detail here. Firstly the overall proportions are correct – no mean feat as […]

338: Maekawa’s Triceratops

Posted by wonko on December 4, 2011 in dinosaur |

I have folded a few dinosaurs, some have been simple but this little beauty has a good body shape and a fab head: This is Jun Maekawa’s Triceratops – folded from his book “Genuine Origami”. There is something calming about folding a Maekawa model – Ineeded calming down as I had a model fail today – […]
