907: (357/365) Mr Origami

Posted by wonko on December 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Always on the look out for a model that somehow incorporates traditional cranes (Tsuru), I stumbled across this design and knew I had to try it: A clever pre-folding sequence caches paper that later emerges as “bird-baseable” end points you can locate at the ends of arms.

905: (355/365) Emperor Palpatine

Posted by wonko on December 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi |

I am sure you remember the good old days, when things were better. In the Star Wars Universe this meant Luke, Leia and Han battling the dark side of the force wearing cheesy costumes, in squeeky clean spaceships, among a rain of pew pew pew: The truth is there were no “good old days”, they […]

902: (352/365) Satan

Posted by wonko on December 18, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

So apparently a symbol of the festive season is a portly old beardy man in a red suit that gives presents to kids who have been nice (and not naughty): This is Steven Casey’s “Santa”, a lovely exercise in colour change and layer management.

895: (345/365) Tightrope

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry, humanoid |

Life is a delicate balance, kind of like being on a tightrope way above the ground in the bigtop. Balance is important, lots of things effect balance: Work, life, play, people, things that all take their toll on our balance, and we all struggle to walk the line sometimes, tipping this way and that as […]

887: (337/365) Tree Topper

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, seasonal |

Always looking for a nice Xmas tree topper, this little angel is designed by Leonardo Pulido Martinez and was presented in one of my BOS journals: Had accuracy (and my Spanish) been better, I would also have hands (fingers) on this little model but I started with an almost square and crease drift occurred towards the […]

881: (331/365) Nativity Scene

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

People I work with know my OCD tendencies. When it was casually suggested that I might consider folding a Nativity scene for the end of year celebrations, it was a forgone conclusion that I would: The assembled figures (each nearly 30cm tall) form quite a striking display – hopefully one that works for the display […]

880: (330/365) Seated Mother

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the challenge to render a more feminine figure, seated, as if tending something was on: Using a variation of the generic judaian I managed to change the head, add knees and change the posture so sitting is suggested.

878: (328/365) Holy Infant

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the next challenge was to render a babe, in swaddling clothes: Using principles garnered from an adult fold, I sort of MacGuivered a larger-proportion head, wrapped the body and presto.

877: (327/365) Generic Judaian

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

…now when you want to fold someone from ancient Jerusalem, the options are few and far between. I stumbled across a design, again by Max Hulme, that will, with modification, do nicely: My generic Judaian is wrangled from a 50cm square of thick Kraft paper, and ends up being about 25cm tall all up.

876: (326/365) Angel

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

Cruising around the internet, as one does, I stumbled across a thumbnail graphic of a diagram that appears somewhere else and sort of just worked it out: This is loosely based on an angel design by Max Hulme.
