So it is raining, and there are storms and floods, so how better to mirror that than with an articulated Origami model – this is a storm cloud, it’s lightning bolt snaps up and down.
We visited Cape Otway Lighthouse, there in the underbrush was a small, wet rabbit – very cute, so I thought it would be a good model to make.
Difficult (and I had to cheat with a cut to make the 2 lobes of the ears) – might search out another rabbit model that does not require cheating however.
Two views of the same berry, a nice variation of the time-tested and much tossed water bomb base. Made with a square cut from half an A4 page, the smaller you make these the more realistic the shape.
I like this, the posture/stance is sort of what I expect (after watching Jurassic Park) and I like how you get the vestigial arms seemingly from nowhere. I like how the shadow makes it more menacing as well, accidental photos using obscure light sources can result in nice happenstances sometimes.
Nice model, interesting manipulation of the bird-base, first time I tried it – you can try it too at http://www.fishgoth.com/origami/diagrams/velociraptor.pdf
This is, in my opinion, a masterpiece of pre-folding, you make one model, unfold it and bend it into another model. I pride myself of folding this from memory – not bad given I have not folded it in at least 15 years.
One piece of paper (photocopy A4 is not great as it frays after 3 or 4 creases on the same line) cut square, no additional cuts, no glue – all class.
I rather like the expression on the face, position of ears and body stance of this model – not bad for a first time fold.
