930: Ground Control to Major Tom …

Posted by wonko on July 11, 2018 in humanoid, paper, scifi |

…take your protein pills and put your helmet on. I have waited an age to fold this model – I was waiting on finding some large format duo paper. When visiting IKEA, I came upon delicious 70cm wide rolls of duo Kraft paper (black on natural and white on natural), and bought a bunch of […]

927: It’s All About the Base

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2018 in humanoid, machine, vehicle |

One approach to paper folding starts with a “base” – a form with flaps and general morphology that suits an end goal. A well-designed base is a thing of beauty, and a flexible tool. This base, a mutated fish base has really useful properties as demonstrated by these two wildly different folds, both designed by […]

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.
