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 thier toll on our balance, and we all struggle to walk the line sometimes, tipping this way and that as […]

894: (344/365) Baby Harp Seal

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal, seasonal |

Sad but true, baby harp seals up until fairly recently were hunted for their pelts – the fashion industry could not get enough of them: While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

893: (343/365) Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 9, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

It has been said that “you are never alone with a rubber duck” – equally true with a teddy bear I suspect: I must experiment with the posture. designed for bi-colour paper, you cannot see the colour changes for eyes and the rest with this fold, but the arms and legs are charming, cutie ears […]

889: (339/365) Sitting Duck

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

There has been a lot of talk in the media about people demonstrably doing the wrong thing, over a really long period of time. Interesting that one of the defences offered was that they were a “sitting duck” in the post-weinstein era. Regardless, a backyard should be a safe place to play: This is Henry […]

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 […]

884: (334/365) Pegasus

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

In my list of “models to try someday” was this model designed by Takashi Hojyo: A complex management of points, this lovely rendition of a Pegasus has much to love. The wings, legs and general morphology are very pleasing to the eye but not easy to achieve as a fold.

882: (332/365) Brian Chan’s Fiddler Crab

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

…yes, I know I am behind, but I have been busy and my brain is fairly broken. As part of the cleanse I took a 35cm sheet of washi and decided to try Brian Chan’s Super-complex “Fiddler Crab” model, never entertaining the notion that I would achieve the model, but rather just to fold for […]

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.
