FAQs about origami

Where do I begin with origami and how can I find easy models?

Try browsing the board for guides, or other online resources listed below, for models you like and practice folding them.

A great way to begin at origami is to participate in the Let’s Fold Together threads >>>/po/lft - open up the PDF file and find a model you like, work on it, and discuss or post results.

Anyone tried doing paper puppets like this? Where would one get started designing something like this?

i got it too, was going to wait a month or so before i made scans public, unfortunately most of the fans frequent this board and will wait as long as possible before buying something then refuse to share it so they can "trade" for other stuff instead of just making the community better.
Posting in a glacial thread.
These little puppets are very soulful [spoiler]even the goddamn OCs are great[/spoiler]
I appreciate that attitude. Good thing is, that as far as I know, this book contains not just blueprints, but all the material needed to build the puppets, so I don't think that the scans will be enough for many people and most people will just buy the book along with the material.
I'm struggling to understand how the rig mechanism works. Does anyone have a pic from behind of any of these? How do the wires/hooks work? Or the joints?

I have the book. It's actually really cool. The only one with thick paper is the white cat girl, the other 11 use thinner paper the same size as the instructions (but still thick enough, hopefully.)
There are a hella lot of pages and if I scan I'll likely have to colour correct and vectorise the cutouts, so I won't release until I have time to get around to it. Probably more than 2 weeks. I highly recommend buying it, but I don't want to ruin the book with my scissors so scans should help even to people who have already bought it.

I really wanted to build Ritsu over here, but there´s one model and it´s lined like crazy, so I used my amazing mcpaint skills to get rid of them, just sharing in case anyone else here wants it

I mean, I can´t be the only Kemurikusa fan here, right?

Does anyone have a clear copy of this book they could share?

>links for these two books from ZHEZHIDAXUE
Here they are :

Thanks, but these are no good to people who can't join. There's no download link.
>these are no good
But those are exactly what OP requested !
No, they are not. I requested the download links for the books because I can't gain entrance to that damn Chinese site, not the links to the download pages. Anyone can view the pages, but without membership, you cannot view the download links.
Oh, I almost forgot, though. I don't really need them anymore anyway, I have the books now, thanks to a friend.

Can someone share this?

Yeah, you kinda did when you asked if "Anyone gots". No one is gonna up 'em for you, because you can't ask for them properly. You think everyone has to cater to your every need, but that ain't gonna happen. You ask for way too many at a time, and you act like you're entitled to everything, but you're not.
I can ask for whateva I want kid, jus like anyone. If ya dun like it dont reply. Lata yo
Of course, you can ask for anything you want, but you're not going to get anything with your attitude, and the way you ask for things.
I love how not one person thanked you. Too busy shoving their ego's up their asses. Thanks.
It's better than having your head up yours.

Can someone please share this book?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Sorry, not the same book. It is a book of Michael LaFosse models including the pegasus on the cover of Origami Fantastic Animals.
If I wanted the book that Sargont posted, I wouldn't have asked for the OP book by LaFosse.
Niggas don't know about Z-Library.
This is not the same book OP is asking for, Nigga.
Everyone knows about Z-Library. Does it look like the same book to you?

What do you people do about posture? I use a regular plastic chair, I can´t sit back with my hands up because the paper I cut falls all over my clothes and the floor, and I can´t bend forward with my elbows on the desk cause it aches my back

tell me your secrets

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?

You need finer cutting tools.

Nothing says /po/ more than responding to a 4 year old reply.
I made something similar for my mom when I was 11, didn't know it was kirigami

I've been working on a paper craft ecosystem with a focus on characters with interchangeable accessories like hats, backpacks and tools.

If you have any feedback on the designs or characters you'd like to see me make, let me know. You can also customise the blank template to make characters of your own.

When I release a new character for download I'll post a picture here (unless I forget). Happy folding.

Resident Evil 2 characters
Ada Wong
Leon Scott Kennedy
Claire Redfield
Lieutenant Marvin Branagh

Resident Evil 3 characters
Jill Valentine
Carlos Oliveira

Dino Crisis characters
Sorry for the lack of requests being fulfilled, I'm just doing this in my spare time for a bit of fun, I've got a few days off coming up so I'll try to design some new characters :)

I updated this Samus toy to make the visor a little bigger, the face more visible and add a little wearable Metroid alien accessory.

>I would also really like to see these printed with a good quality paper and a better printer. i feel like the colors are dull?
I agree that the colours in the images are a bit dull, but I don't think the issue is the paper or printer, but rather the photos themselves. I'm not a great photographer and I'm struggling to figure out how to get them to look nice but also keep the colour consistent between shots. I've put together a rotating plate and been watching a lot of tutorials so hopefully the images will slowly start looking nicer and then when I figure out how to make them look good consistently, I'll re-photograph all the older designs so everything matches (pic rel)

I don't know much about Dino Crisis or Resident Evil, but it would be a lot of fun to design a couple of human characters and some of the bigger monsters like Nemisis or Lady Dimitrescu. I'll add them to the list.

It'd be cool if you made any character from GOT
Maybe the Hound with a dog helmet and sword
I really like the cute design and the fact that the models are customizable. It's fairly easy to fold too. I have a problem with my printer at the moment so maybe I'll try to color the basic template with markers. Nice work, anon!

Is papercraft as a hobby dying?
57 replies and 11 images omitted. Click here to view.
this, in the context of "mainstream tech", paper is viewed as obsolete but it will always have it's place and "flimsy paper-like substance manipulation" will find utility in the most unlikely places
just yesterday We attended a WH tournament,
with very nice scenery, made of folded paper of course.
I don't think it is dying, but you could try to express your love for the craft in a way that proliferates it, as long as it doesn't impede it.

D t k

I was told this board needs more build pics, so here´re the models I build in 2 the first 2 weeks after taking a decade-long break from the hobby

say nice things about them

Please consider trading files with me then. I shared my trade email if you want to contact me. 100% private and anonymous, and I won't re-share it if you don't want to. I also have a lot of his stuff that I do not share anymore from the old files, so I completely get it. I just want it for myself
Are you really that dumb? Well of course you are..he probably don't know what you did..but he obviously know who he share it for..and then he just blocked whoever he shares it previously for..so yeah..tough luck shithead..like anybody Will risk that..so yeah..keep dreaming the "i always get what i want" thing moron..try wanting a brain..you desperately need it..
God, that daddy-issues are really deep with you, huh? Just can't wrap that empty head of yours around the fact that I have been doing this for 2 years and YES, working like a charm :) sorry to dissapoint your whining bitchass assumptions, but not all of us are braindead idiots and we know how to trade stuff around. Guess SV just isn't that great FBI-expert that sniffs out everybody like you think he does. Or you probably tried it yourself and got banned since your are a dumbfuck :D good riddance from the SV-community, we don't need you. Now go cry in a corner
thats so cool how did you do that
how did I do what?
