609: (59/365) Leia Organa

Posted by wonko on February 28, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

“Help me Obi Wan Kenobie, you’re my only hope’: This is my second attempt at Tadashi Mori’s “Leia”, a fun fold that does so much with a tortured little piece of paper.

608: (58/365) Master Yoda

Posted by wonko on February 27, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

Do or do not, there is no try: This is Stéphane Gigandet’s “Yoda”, a lovely simple Star Wars character fold taken from a video I found on a Chinese version of a ebsite (the English version is here) – try it you should.

607: (57/365) Storm Trooper

Posted by wonko on February 26, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

…now I am as much a fan of Star Wars as the next browncoat. I loved Orac, thought he was the best little droid sidekick since Starbuck and 7 of 9 was my favourite character in all of the series: This is Tadashi Mori’s “Storm Trooper” – a lovely little clone of a guy from […]

598: (48/360) Neal Elias’ “Rocking Horse”

Posted by wonko on February 17, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, mammal |

This model is testament to the design genius of Neal Elias: Taking the bird base, and a colour change, we fashion a jockey (with the cutest little cap) atop a rocking horse. I love the detail here and will probably fold this again, only with a slightly bigger bit of paper.

593: (43/360) Neal Elias’ “Andres Segovia”

Posted by wonko on February 12, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

When a member of the British Origami Society, I purchased “Selected works of Neal Elias” and continue to find gems within it – this is one such treasure: Modeled after a classical guitarist in 1970, this model starts with a 3×1 rectangle (8×23 to be exact) and, via miracles of box pleating (a pioneering technique […]

586: (36/360) Gaikotsu Figure

Posted by wonko on February 5, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, wtf |

Now I am not really one for card-based rpg/gattle games – Pokemon, Yugioh, Magic the gathering, but I know they have a huge and passionate fan-base. Trolling through a Tanteidan I found a curious little skeletal character and decided to fold it: A modular, in 3 bits (head, shoulders, knees+toes … everybody sing..), it struck […]

581: (31/365) Brian

Posted by wonko on January 31, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

“He’s not a messiah, he is just a very naughty boy”. “Crucifixion? Good. Line on the left, one cross each”: In my opinion, “Life of Brian” by the Monty Python team is close to perfect, such a beautiful play in an otherwise familiar ancient world, full to the brim with some of their cleverest work. […]

575: (25/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 3)

Posted by wonko on January 25, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, fish, humanoid |

Look away, look away … we are going to need a bigger boat: Interestingly, people’s opinions of sharks in Australia, particularly by those who do not live here, varies from reality markedly. One would believe, if one believed what you see in the media, that sharks are a problem, everyone gets attacked – this is […]

574: (24/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 2)

Posted by wonko on January 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fish, humanoid |

…you went in, the water was fine. You notice a nice fishy, it seems to want to be friends: This is part 2 of a series by Fernando Gilgado, again, like part 1 it uses bicolour paper and clever colour changes to highlight details.

573: (23/365) A Cautionary Tale (Part 1)

Posted by wonko on January 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, fish, humanoid |

It is a beautiful day, waters clear, the water beckons, it would be wrong not to go for a swim. You put your toe in, the water is lovely, swimming gives you a new found freedom: This is part 1 of a 3 part story – what could possibly go wrong- we rarely see the […]
