677: (127/365) Hung Coung Nguyen’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 7, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing my exploration of origami butterfly form, I realised there were a bunch of folds from the book VOG2 that I had not attempted yet:

I tortured a thin bit of hand-made washi for 2 hours, turning it inside out, backwards and every which way but the resultant form is lovely indeed.

So much of the fold is dedicated to isolating wings and abdomen/antennae.

I chose purple, not sure there are butterflies of this colour but I think it looks nice. I particularly like the clear body segmentation – as a complex model lots of time is dedicated to shaping, the result is a lovely delicate set of wings and solid looking body.
