337: Hercules Beetle

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2011 in creepy crawly |

Woke up, brain would not stop, so thought I would punish it with a super complex Satoshi Kamiya model: This is his Hercules Beetle and it is snarly to fold indeed – even at this scale (I started with a 54cm square) there are terribly fiddly bits. The details here are a little dizzying – […]

323: Satoshi’s Smilodon

Posted by wonko on November 19, 2011 in dinosaur, mammal |

The smilodon is often called the “Saber-toothed Tiger” but is not a tiger at all: This lovely (extinct) beastie is a Satoshi Kamiya masterpiece, a real exercise in restraint – resisting the urge to set creases early to get nice, rounder shapes later. I had no idea what was what with this model – as […]

289: Satoshi’s Mammoth

Posted by wonko on October 16, 2011 in dinosaur, mammal |

I decided today would be another Satoshi Kamiya model (working my way up to the ancient dragon you see) and so selected his Mammoth, figuring “how hard could that be?”: LOL Wow, no I mean WOW! So much technique packed into such a tiny package, resulting in a lovely little pachyderm. There is much to […]

261: Satoshi’s Pegasus

Posted by wonko on September 18, 2011 in mammal |

“I am Pegasus, my name means horse…” – I am old enough to remember a folksey song by Ross Ryan about a mythological winged horse: I had some time, amidst trips and other things today so thought I would give Satoshi Kamiya’s Pegasus a go – it has been taunting me from the pages of his book. […]

246: Satoshi’s Chocobo

Posted by wonko on September 3, 2011 in bird |

There is a yellow bird that features in Final Fantasy called Chocobo: Satoshi Kamiya calls it a “yellow bird” and advises not to attempt this model in anything other than tissue foil – reviewing the instructions I figured I could (maybe, perhaps, possibly) nurse copy paper through the torturous process and so set about to […]

229: Satoshi’s TRex

Posted by wonko on August 17, 2011 in dinosaur |

Now it is a pubic holiday here in Brisbane for the RNA, and rather than do something show-related, I thought I wold “treat” myself to a Satoshi Kamiya model: Mistake # 1 – ignoring the suggested paper size – I Folded this from an 18cm square, suggested minimum was 35cm – lol. It became increasingly obvious as […]

205 Satoshi’s Splash!(swan)

Posted by wonko on July 24, 2011 in bird |

The idea behind this model is fascinating (and a little difficult to explain in a white only fold) – use half a sheet of paper to fold a landing bird and leave the other half unfolded to be the pond it is landing on: Quite difficult to achieve using copy paper, the finished model if […]

Book Ordered

Posted by wonko on May 21, 2011 in blarg |

So I have a birthday looming, have always admired Satoshi’s work, plan on attempting the ancient dragon later in the year and wanted to try some tissue foil (chose white) so thought why not. The Origami-shop.com is well regarded in the origami community so I have signed up and it is all good. They have […]
