881: (331/365) Nativity Scene

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

People I work with know my OCD tendencies. When it was casually suggested that I might consider folding a Nativity scene for the end of year celebrations, it was a forgone conclusion that I would:

The assembled figures (each nearly 30cm tall) form quite a striking display – hopefully one that works for the display space – we shall see. Clearly Christmas is just around the corner, with this scene, it is beginning to look a lot like … well … christmas.

We have on the left, 3 kings, bringing gifts (bronze waterbombs are quite the thing this year). Centre there is an angel, looking over a mother, father and child. Bringing up the rear is a random shepherd … because … the scene needed balance.

880: (330/365) Seated Mother

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the challenge to render a more feminine figure, seated, as if tending something was on:

Using a variation of the generic judaian I managed to change the head, add knees and change the posture so sitting is suggested. Read more…

879: (329/365) No Crib for a Bed

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, furniture |

So, I needed some furniture, and thought of a feed trough, but had to invent one:

Folded from a smallish square, this has trough and some rather nice legs, but does not look very comfortable. Read more…

878: (328/365) Holy Infant

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

So the next challenge was to render a babe, in swaddling clothes:

Using principles garnered from an adult fold, I sort of MacGuivered a larger-proportion head, wrapped the body and presto. Read more…

877: (327/365) Generic Judaian

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

…now when you want to fold someone from ancient Jerusalem, the options are few and far between. I stumbled across a design, again by Max Hulme, that will, with modification, do nicely:

My generic Judaian is wrangled from a 50cm square of thick Kraft paper, and ends up being about 25cm tall all up. Read more…

876: (326/365) Angel

Posted by wonko on November 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, seasonal |

Cruising around the internet, as one does, I stumbled across a thumbnail graphic of a diagram that appears somewhere else and sort of just worked it out:

This is loosely based on an angel design by Max Hulme. Read more…

875: (325/365) Cat in Box

Posted by wonko on November 26, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is a well known fact, in households that own a cat, that when there is a box, your cat will, at some time, be in that box:

It has taken me a while to get around to perfecting this fold – it is designed for a larger sheet but I managed to achieve it on a 17.5cm square. Read more…

…all behind like a cows tail.

Posted by wonko on November 25, 2017 in blarg |

Yes, I know I am behind.

Work is busy right now, but never fear faithful reader, I will catch up again soon.

Oh, and can someone please remind me next time I suggest I will try a 365 Origami challenge that folding NEW models, one a day, is just too punishing. Seriously. Please TELL me I am an idiot if I try this again.

874: (324/365) Fifteen Degree Cat

Posted by wonko on November 20, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

There are many strategies when designing an origami figure – many of them originate in a number of degrees as the main division:

This cat is based on angles of mainly 15 degrees, different to 22.5 degrees that is usual from bisecting right angles twice. Read more…

873: (323/365) Elephant Trophies

Posted by wonko on November 19, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, boxes, mammal |

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 again (presumably so his stupid rich family can go shoot things again) it SHOULD make the world furious. When will ENOUGH BE ENOUGH? Read more…
