What does "S" stand for ?
Here's the lower case "t" diagram from issue 360 of the Nippon Origami Association Magazine.

Cool, who has the completed alpha letter and number?

Hey /po/, does anyone have templates for Ponyo papercraft models? I found this on image search and it looks so nice and cute, but I can't find instructions for them :(. It would be great if someone can find them... or instructions for an equally good or related model. Thank you.

Thank you!
You do that! Truth be told I'm really bad at getting around to watching stuff myself, guess that's why I'm so clueless about a lot popular culture stuff.
Next thing I work on will probably something that, by some reasonable fraction, fires my imagination and passion as the cause for this project did. Happens on occasion. Not into the pol stuff though.
>Not into the pol stuff though.
Congratulations anon
may you have good smiles and fortunes

Usually i glue each flap one by one before gluing the final large side flap to close the whole thing and almost every time it requires me a second try until i find out a good spot to start. In the attached pic (they are flandres legs) i started at the marked spot like this because it seemed like them most difficult part.

> long time until the parts finally stay together.
maybe you're using a shitty glue? because it shouldn't take too long actually.
Thank you

Has paper craft ever helped any of you in a real life situation. like oh hey we could do this just like a origami. Im kind of interested in doing some basic origami to see if the understanding of shapes could help me at work with general fabrication.

Good for gift wrapping
I used origami to fold parts of the Hubble telescope so it could fit inside the shuttle for delivery.
I unironically believe you. /po/ is a good board.
This is flarking brilliant
In the same area, I work at a hospital and leaving cranes around the place makes me feel better about people dying everywhere.

My folds are shit and my models look embarrassingly bad. I feel like every tiny inaccuracy is biting me in the ass three or four folds later, when they all accumulate and make everything look super wonky. I'm really interested in some of the more advanced models but obviously anything I can make right now only barely resembles what it's supposed to be, affected further by my shitty folding.

How to actually improve this? Fold tons of the same model? Fold tons of different models? Kill myself and hope my reincarnation is more talented at making stupid shit out of paper?

Couldn't find any bigger folding paper but I've been searching at the wrong places probably. Decided to bunk down and commit to making at least 100 of something. Since I considered them relatively challenging, that has become masu boxes. I'm at 32 right now after a day of intermitted folding and I can fold them relatively well now. My biggest problem seems to be the accuracy of my creases. I can't fold a piece of paper diagonally for the life of me. I'm starting to blame the paper thinking it might not be perfectly square or something. I swear I cannot get two corners to align perfectly for shit.

Not sure what to do with all these boxes now though.

Tissue paper is bigger than regular folding paper right? Sold anyway since it sounds affordable. Guess I'm stinking up a flower store next.

As indicated by >>576623, the main factor is the material:

1) Bigger size, easier to fold complex models
2) Origami Paper is NOT "just" paper. Look for "grain" in paper.

Just look for kraft paper (the one used to wrap things around). They sell huge rolls cheaper impossible.
To make diagonals, I first join up two corners without folding the paper. Then I crease just a little bit at one corner, do the same on the other corner, then the middle before joining the creases together. I get more accuracy by starting at the corners.
Try some simple exercises to improve accuracy. Fold traditional models until you get them to be crisp and pristine, practice pleating, try dividing paper into thirds, fifths, etc. You don't need good paper for these exercises, just go to a dollar store and get a packet of loose-leaf.

That would help, but if his accuracy is as bad as he says he'd just be wasting good paper.

Some cheap paper is off by a millimeter or so. I got this crap 200 sheet origami book at 5 below and they're all off, but they're serviceable. Actually used them in the fold along thread for some montroll designs.

That's exactly how I do them as well. It also works out if the the paper is a bit off. You can compensate a lot for paper that isn't exactly square, I can tell you from experience
Its alot to do with acciracy and enjoyment..i am doing lot of large boxgrids staruling at 56x66

I used to do newspaper delivery in my car and the smell of ink would make me lightheaded and nauseous
you can't trust the news in the paper why should you trust the ink
The simple square box has to be one of the most useful of all origami patterns I know.

>Lenovo thinkpad

I approve
Damn thanks guy

I've been folding paper for so long I feel like I have so much of the geometry memorized, the folds, the patterns, the symmetry, the greater designs. Lately I've been seeing geometry patterns in conversations, at work when I'm walking I feel like I can see the patterns, even in the way people act, even if its random i feel like i can feel the origami folds if i sketch it out, the patterns.
What is going on? I've been folding for almost 20 years, Its never been obsessive in my life but I feel like everything I see in even abstractions have a sacred pattern behind them and I can sense it by seeing the tip of the iceberg.

What is happening to me?

You have a special understanding with God. Papercraft is your craft. I'm proud of you.
Bro i thought i was the only one. Do you make modular platonic solids when you fold?
Or perhaps platonic solids are the only rational modular origami to fold? I dont know what is correllation and what is causatoon here.
I got this with sudoku.
>so much
Quit lisping like a faggot.

Cool article, makes me want to get into quilling even more! Related pages at the bottom are great too, more examples of really nice looking paper art
Your thread made me buy a quilling set. Any good resources for beginners?

I want to make a diorama similar in style to this, but I feel like I'm struggling with every step of the process.
My scissors are mangling paper, so I can't do small details, I can't frame my images correctly...
What is the secret to a good diorama?

I haven't done full scene dioramas, but I have had a go at individual characters for bits of puppetry. From that experience alone, I can straight up suggest that you drop the scissors and go for a paper knife and cutting board. Far more precision; scissors aren't good with little details.
That's looking very cute! And yeah I figured as much, I need to get my old cutting board from my parents place
It would help to draw a picture of what you want in frame
Hey I can personally help with everything you need to know for dioramas!

First for a nice look. Always go for shadow boxes. Founded commonly at craft stores. Look for something with a around one inch thickness. Also invest in craft knives, foam (find it in paper craft and photo albums section of craft stores.)

Make your diorama around the frame. Meaning cut the peices to fit the frame. Not the other way around. Second don't use string if you are doing this. Instead prop the cloud with either foam or dowels. makes a far cleaner and professional look. If you wish to keep the string look to keep with the paper Mario theme. Instead glue the string on afterwards to ensure it looks right and not angled off like in picture. Maybe even cut paper to look like rope holding up the clouds? I might have some time myself to make an attempt at this guy!
>That's looking very cute!
Thank you! ^o^
I hope to see the work you come up with.

I wanna see some really amazing artists in the world of paper craft could you guys suggest the greatest people to look for?

Is there a definitive book/site that has all the animals that can be done in origami up to now?
I need it for a project I'm working on.
I almost forgot.
I need them to use only one square sheet for the complete animal.
Thanks a lot. This is just what I was looking for.

These are really hard, though.
Here's an easy origami site, if this is what you need.
