Let’s talk about this guy. First thing, I have to say that, regardless of his flaws and his teaching models without permission, I consider him an extremely positive and much needed figure in the origami community. (You know what Jesus said: let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Likewise, let only those who have never illegally downloaded an origami book criticise him.) I don’t know whether his channel has any strikes, but he must be on thin ice in YouTube terms.
So here’s what I suggest: someone with much more storage space than me should download all his videos in case his channel gets deleted, and archive them somewhere. They’re all 720p but generally long.

Of course, these modules are not limited to 3-inch sticky notes. 8.5-inch paper works just as well.

Anyone ever made an underquest themed origami?

Feel free to post your collections, your works in progress, or your star hordes! You can find lots of inspiration in the old thread (http://boards.4chan.org/po/thread/515222) Remember /PO/ is a slow board so please don't bump the thread. I created the last thread over two years ago. Here's to two more.

So I've been making my own custom stickers for a while now but I've run out of ideas on ones to make next. anyone got some suggestions? Here are some examples of ones I've made so far.

i know this is an old ass fucking comment but im gonna reply anyway because i think its useful general knowledge. Why could you bother doing that when you can just hit prnt scrn? If its a huge image I guess you would need to manually save it, but any sticker should fit with the size of your monitor?
Surprisingly - and this is common knowledge for any /po/ anon who are used to handling pdfs, constructing templates, etc - you need a high resolutions for decent image reproduction in print.
About 300 pixels translates to an inch in print. But actually, much better printers that would be used for creating stickers, 500 - 700 pixels for an inch would be needed.
So yeah, really a lot of the times the resolution of the images are the size of a monitor or a bit bigger.
well... i have been scanning drawings into my computer using a printer, and i have heard scanning at anything less than 300dpi is a waste for that? So I guess that sounds vaguely consistant somehow with what youre saying except the process is backwords? I find computer resolution to be really arbitrary and nontangible so i cant wrap my head around this stuff too well.
Make a chrismas tree with DnD dices as decorations.
If you wanna go even further make some dragons dacorations and instead of a star put your favorite DnD character you ve created
Yeah, it's a bit like that. If you're going through the effort of doing traditional art, you ought to use 300 dpi scanning or better if you want to accurately reproduce the art digitally. Especially if it will be use for digital inking and the like, or expecting people to zoom in on the drawing.

I think I may have attached the wrong picture. The one I wanted is of rocks in a landscape, but it also had something to do with paper, or not at all. It had nothing to do with paper, just rocks.
I think it’s the right picture.
Are these natural?
Now that I think about it, are there any paper models based on landscapes?

Maybe you remember this from the origami gifts thread, but last year for a Secret Santa thing I gave these models to somebody as a gift. Now Christmas is approaching again and I want to be ready in time with some really impressive models. I’ve purchased for this occasion a 40×40 cm sheet of Origami Shop red tissue foil (so not the actual tissue foil made with foil, but it still has its properties), a 45×45 sheet of green sandwich paper (the ‘real’ tissue foil) and a 48×48 sheet of dark green Elephant Hide. I would like to make, among others, the following models:
-Eric Joisel’s Dwarf (probably from green homemade tissue foil, not the one from the Shop)
-Robert Lang’s Murex (from white tissue foil made by myself)
-some kind of impressive dragon. I’m not sure what to choose between Jo Nakashima’s Devil Dragon, Kade Chan’s Fiery Dragon 2.0 or Tadashi Mori’s Darkness Dragon. I definitely want it to be complex but not Ancient or Western Dragon-tier.
What other suggestions do you guys have? I want to give about five or six models in total, I want to keep them reasonably complex or sophisticated-looking, I have access to plenty of PDF’s of origami books and, of course, YouTube tutorials, and I don’t need to exclusively use the papers I’ve bought (although the red tissue foil could be reserved for the dragon), also being able to make small sheets of tissue foil at home (which I wouldn't prefer because they are very uncomfortable to fold with).

On a more serious note, how about Roman Diaz's Hippocampus? It's kinda pretty but quirky too.
where do you get your paper? dont know where to get large square sheets for the complex folds, i really want to do tessellations, specifically, the hydrangeas, i like youre clover. i was able to do the rose tessellation with just office paper but never got past three by three
Origami Shop, I mentioned it in the OP. If you’re asking about the paper of the models in the picture, they’re all coloured printer paper, except for the dog which is homemade tissue foil.
really love the one on the left
Does anyone know a book of Christmas origami? Easy stuff, if possible.

They're beautiful, anon.

I've looked everywhere and can't find anything the artist is called Ingrid Siliakus she does some cool stuff but wondering if she had any templates or does she keep this stuff secret?

Post any pattern that can be printed for use as "homemade" origami paper.

Please, NO pictures of finished figures, and NO diagrams... these CAN be used in OTHER threads I will create soon, just NOT HERE!

Google Image searches are a good source and where I've gotten most of my own patterns, but Google recently changed how the image searches work (for the worse) and I've been having trouble lately getting more patterns to add to my collection.

Any advice on printing to produce lightweight paper suitable for origami? Base paper? Type of printer?
It depends what you need more/ less of ...
I need a new home soon and garden so...having books with old wallcoverings whatever era..if you hate gardening get them flowers in line..
What about your girl...she would like cute stuff and not so much leather and lace like your trying to make a toy doll
Noob here, practiced origami years back but never printed out designs like this. Is there a way to print the pattern on the front and back? I find the undecorated side distracting and ugly to look at. Looks cheap and unfinished. If i used a thicker paper like cardstock, would i be able to just print the image twice on each side of the paper? Or would the ink seep through making each side look ugly?
Even though these are all perfect squares, how can I control how big these are when printed? Some are 200x200 px--others are 600x600. Is there any way to print these square at a specific size? Like 4 inches by 4 inches? 6 inches by 6 inches? I feel if I save them all and print them out, they will all be a "random" size that the computer decides to print these at.
how much does all this ink cost

hey /po/, does anyone have the link to this folder?


it was shared on some archived posts and has worked fine until today, now it just gives me a 404 whenever I open it. It disappeared from where I saved it to my drive too, so I'm expecting the original author probably got rid of it or something
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
oof, I shoulda been more specific, and pic unrelated

it was just a fairly large folder full of files named by author with their respective works inside. Had pretty much everything I ever needed in it, even obscure origami artists who only post their works to Flickr and places like that. I think the only way to find it now is if anyone else has it saved. I remember the drive folder was unimaginatively called "origami" and was a read only I believe
Go to your drive...empty bin..go to settings clear cache ...go to Google store ...update drive...go to drive menu..click shares with me...sometimes when apps are uninstalled the links set back to default and it shares links could be set to timer....
If that's not successful use reverse photo finder with Google to guess what the c.p is
They also could have moved it ...all is not lost though..you can try looking in the back up folder in Google photos..go on to Flickr click recent activity or faves.
Also you browser might have the address of the archives thread you got the torrent from...type 4Chan into the search bar and a few addresses should automatically scroll down...
The c.p is by Obelisk it's an anime character in red...
Go look for him on Flickr & Twitter
A.k.a Chaio Baixin or Ob at twitter

What's a good origami book to give as a gift? My brother wants a book for Christmas and I'm not sure about what kind of good stuff is out there. Maybe something lesser-known but anything works.

Pic related, this is the last book he used to use.
genuine origami by jun maekawa if he already doesn't own it
It depends on which level your brother is at. Try this one if he is at intermediate to advance.
