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.

When an orange clown decides that rich stupid people should be allowed to hunt wild animals for fun, hack bits of them off and use them as trophies it makes me cross: When that same “ass hat” orange clown then tweets that he might change an existing law to allow this banned activity to happen […]

Always on the lookout for a cute model, I saw this design shared freely on Fakebook by it’s creator: This is “Little Pig” by Hung Cuong Nguyen, a lovely rich and complex model that seems to eat paper like … well, like a pig. Lovely round body, beautiful ears and a tail I decided needed […]

Origami has featured in cinema in many ways. The Blade Runner franchise uses origami figures to accentuate certain story points and the most recent movie features an elderly “Gaff”, in a retirement home, folding a sheep: After some research it seems the model was a tweaked Jun Maekawa model. tweaked because the original has curled […]

I am always on the look out for well designed Kangaroos: Interestingly, the best ones are often designed by people who do not have them around. This delightful 2-part model is designed by Kunihiko Kasahara, from the book “Origami Made Easy”.
