That's definitely not the diagram for the picture on your op. The differences are subtle but they matter. The chicken on your diagram will never stand.

haha this needs a bump. btw, have you ever folded a double or triple "siamese crane"? interesting twist on a classic favorite. except with the triple crane you can only fold 999 of them. world war so close yet so far...

Don't start with cps that don't have different colours for mountain and valley if you are new to CPS lol

>>604978
Kaede Nakamura is advanced level complex. You are skipping levels .The best beginners books would be John montroll or Fumiaki Kawahata early publishing for ease of diagrams and rarely getting stuck .
Or secondly popular models where there's online help .
Thirdly try the same subject by other authors . Practice finding those reference lines

Hey , I want to learn and understand how the origami designs are made , an someone recommend me some resources to learn that?
>>
>>605200
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.

http://en.origami-club.com
https://origami.me/diagrams/
https://www.origami-resource-center.com/free-origami-instructions.html
http://www.paperfolding.com/diagrams/

What paper should I use?

It depends on the model; for smaller models which involved 25 steps or fewer, 15 by 15 cm origami paper from a local craft store will be suitable. For larger models you will need larger or thinner paper, possibly from online shops. Boxpleated models require thin paper, such as sketching paper. Wet folded models require thicker paper, such as elephant hide.

Finally finished my papercraft Master Chief release!

Look for him in the Halo category (I know, so original...) on my papercraft webpage:

Sir! Yes sir! :op

I love the visor too, it turned out so well! I made it from special cardstock which has an extra shiny, golden layer on one side that I used before. It's usually called something like Gold Mirror or Gold Metallic Cardstock in shops.

I used the "Gold Mirror Cardstock" from the "Joy! Crafts" brand (230 gsm, so pretty thick, but there are other brands as well.

It's VERY difficult to print on with an inkjet printer, a laser printer however works perfect; or because it's just one small part here, maybe you could just print the colored version, tape it over the mirror / metallic cardstock and score the fold lines and cut the part that way. :o)

Just getting into this as a new hobby. Looks really nice. Great work.
>>
>>606527
That actually looks sick as fuck, nice work
>>
>>606527
Nicely done.

Any plans for an Arbiter papercraft?
>>
>>606791
Thanks! But I'm afraid I have no specific plans for an Arbiter or other Halo characters atm, sorry... I might make some in the future, but papercraft is only a hobby of mine and I really have tons of ideas so I never know which ones I end up doing and I can't make any promises...

I did start making '3D game model extraction tutorials' including for Halo (PC version) so people can try 'paperfying' their favorite characters themselves! :o)

Anyone have this book to share or trade?

No.606678, I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU A JUSTIFICATION WHY UPLOAD THEM, FIRST I SUPPORT THE ORIGAMISTS AND THE BOOKS THAT I CAN BUY I DO, I ALSO BUY PAPERS IN THE ORIGAMI SHOP, AND THE BOOKS THAT THEY ASK ME FOR AND I HAVE THEM, I SHARE THEM, FINALLY THESE MAGAZINES ORU NO THEY ARE NOWHERE AND THE LAST THING IS THANK YOU FOR NOT BEING RUDE, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SHARE THEM, I RESPECT IT.

Have you thought about selling origami? I would love to have an Instagram with a showcase of models and price quotas. I am, however, aware of the legal status of making money off someone else’s copyrighted models. The ethics are of no concern to me, but let’s say the jig was up. Could I expect anything more than a cease and desist?

I can pull up all Origami sellers add to my folder and report when Im in that frame of mind .
Plus you'd be doing a better service by uploading photo process and how to's ; for example diagramming models that should have been done and offersing to help those that are stuck . Zoomer like teaching them .. if you get discovered, you can plea that if it wasn't for you novices would leave the medium in droves and this way your helping then stay the course

>>605226
Well no bc pdf hoarders aren't as bad ,really folding as much as they say . Most of them are from places where money is tight and paper is all exports
Most only want one or two models when they get to a certain level they will start buying better paper and books .

cool story bro, have fun wasting your time

Agree with the rest of your statement though, like I said you'll be putting in an absurd amount of work for a little pay of being the appreciation level of normies but if that's what you want to do or you're looking for lunch money I suppose

What helped you learn how to fold from crease patterns? I've been folding for a long time and I've always been intimidated by CPs, I really love this model for example, but since there's no way for me to get the diagrams, I have to rely on the CP posted on his website

No. Covering it with expanding foam will though.

Wanted to do my part in stopping this site dying out for good, starting to get some hype or more action at least on the site by promoting more actual papercraft trades & shares, maybe?
Been on the site since forever mostly just lurking, but now I would like to actively encourage people to maybe engage more and start posting papercraft-related stuff back, so it’s not just origami on here – since it’s really sad to see.
I know there is a controversy of premium files being shared on here, so I would start with people posting links and sharing files of released stuff only. You can also post templates that have been deleted from sites or you are looking for, so we can share the old ones back as well. Generally, just post papercraft-related posts and trying to get the sharing mentality back, I guess. Call me an optimist, but I am sure it’s still possible :)
And for anybody still not willing to share them openly, I also do trades with the rarer premium stuff and newer files, so anybody interested in trading Tao-Bao files etc. you can contact me here:
GoddessAmaterasu13 @ protonmail. com
Sooo, any files people are generally looking for and would like them to be re-shared? I am sure I can post some of them on here, especially the old deleted ones that aren’t posted anywhere. Just reply and let’s get this thing going!
