834: (284/365) Swallow

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I know, I am behind, but have been inexplicably tired of late, time to catch up: This is a swallow, or more correctly a mud lark, but is a fun fold from DOT1 that I was going to try.

826: (276/365) Pelican

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

What a wonderful bird is a Pelican, whose beak can hold more than it’s belly can: We saw lots of pelicans when on holiday up the mid-north coast in the holidays just ended. Majestic gregarious birds that seem to be an odd sum of parts.

823: (273/365) Owl

Posted by wonko on September 30, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising through my copy of Drawing Origami (Tome 1), I noticed a bunch of folds from there that I had not yet tried: This little fellow is a bi-colour owl designed by Juan Hibou. Owls seem popular in origami design and this one cleverly manages layers and colours.

PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.

803: (253/365) Roman Diaz’s Owl

Posted by wonko on September 10, 2017 in bird |

There are many approaches to folding owls, all concentrate on the eyes and head structure: This fold takes you on quite a ride. Diagrams taken from “Drawing Origami Tome 1”, the folding sequence is clear and rich, but I am sure my next fold of this model will be better as I now know what […]

786: (236/365) Beth Johnson’s Hex Owl

Posted by wonko on August 24, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I cannot believe I have not tried this before: A lovely hexagonal tessellation in one corner of a hexagon becomes the fluffy tummy, collapsing the body makes for lovely eyes and a pair of crenellated wings.

754: (204/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Chicken

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, bird, fantasy |

My top 5 movies of all time includes the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. A couple of times during the movie, to confirm a character’s opinion of Deckard’s actions, his sidekick “Gaf” left an origami figure: One was actually folded by the actor (Edward James Olmos) – a gum wrapper was fashioned into a Chicken. He […]

Not sure if Australia has any native species of Hummingbird: Some “sunbirds” look similar but are not closely related species.

So it is late, and I am tired, but sometimes I am a silly goose: So what is a goose – long neck, beak, webbed beat, stocky body – this model ticks all the boxes.

737: (187/365) Penguin

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Reading through Origami Bygota, I stumbled across Ma Yong’s charming penguin: Clever use of colour change goes part way to defining a penguin, but proportions and general morphology also helps.
