I'm interesting in seeing /po/'s best work.
Here it is. A 1:1000 scale origami rock with full detail.
Folded this one just now!
>>554085seems like a pretty complex fold pattern
This was my first time shaping with MC. I loved the whole process. I used a double Unryu paper for it, it looked beautiful when it was done drying up.
Post more amazing stuff faggots
>>554085wow thats impressive
For those who haven't found it:http://origami-art.us/instructions/102-antique-dragonIt's also present in one of Satoshi Kamiya's books.
First attempt at Hideo Komatsus Horse
>>556801Nice one anon. If you like horses you should try the one of roman diaz, less steps but more modeling though.Am i the only one here who start a lot of origami but is too lazy to finish modeling ? Pic related.
All these books shared in the sharing thred and no one post his work ? You guys aren't just collecting massive amounts of books and never folding anything, right ?
It took ages to glue on the pattern.
LaFosse's Banana Slug
>>557157pretty nice ! what's the name of the model ?
a collage I made a while ago. most of the works here are Satoshi Kamiya's models
>>557181forgot the file..
>>557182Would render much better with non-metallic paper (e.g.: wizard, praying mantis, even mammoth tusks, ...)
>see all the amazing shit>i just do paper hats
i löv you blini
>>557182fuck you i hate spiders
>>557568Not really satisfying, it’s full of little imperfections because I was too lazy to do the diagonal pre-creases. To be fair, it would’ve been terribly boring (the square grid is 48×48) but it made it look superficially cleaner.
>>557161i think its called a giraffe
>>557456I do exactly the same thing. Except I've been doing it for 10 years. Crane on man, crane on

>>558452> I don’t like the tail> Are the feet unfinished?I can't get them to stay in the right shape> I don’t like themnot really satisfied with em either, though I like the way the legs and trousers of the joker turned out > I don’t like the paper, but it looks well-foldedthanks, yeah it's just a really cheap type of wrapping paper, don't really have the money to spend a lot on fancy papers > I don’t like the faceI do :) > I don't like the paper, but I really like how the model looksthanks, it's a3 printer paper cut square IIRC, the model can be found on YouTube
>>558443>>558444>>558448I think you should spend more time trying to fold things neatly and modeling you origamis. It seems that you're using kraft paper, if so there are some better paper that would improve the rendering of your models.>>558447Folding looks good but i think this pattern doesn't work well with the model. You should also try to wet finish (with methyl cellulosis if you have, if not you can also use plain water) the parts where the paper unfold itself (at the legs for example). You could also use glue, don't be afraid to use glue, every good folder you see on the internet use glue for their models.
>>558461> I think you should spend more time trying to fold things neatly and modeling you origamis. It seems that you're using kraft paper, if so there are some better paper that would improve the rendering of your models.yeah it's more or less like thin kraft paper, I might buy some better paper in a while. I think my bases are usually quite accurate, but I don't know how to properly model / finish them. I've tried folding a couple of bigger faces with the same amount and shape of 'flaps' that are available in the dwarfs, but that didn't work out all that good either. > Folding looks good but i think this pattern doesn't work well with the model. You should also try to wet finish (with methyl cellulosis if you have, if not you can also use plain water) the parts where the paper unfold itself (at the legs for example). You could also use glue, don't be afraid to use glue, every good folder you see on the internet use glue for their models.I used lots of methyl cellulose on most of the other models, used a bit on the Pegasus to keep the legs in more or less the same position. Wouldn't I need way thicker paper for water shaping to work? what I'm working on pictured phoenix ATM, will try using glue and methyl cellulose to shape it properly (I intend to film burning it and to reverse the video)
forgot the phoenix WIP pic (maybe not entirely appropriate for this thread, but whatever)
>>558464there are 2 separate things.Wet folding is using a wet heavy (>100g/sm usually) paper that you dampen and fold while it is still wet. Generaly you would only use plain water for that.Wet finishing is using a usually thinner paper, you fold everything dry. When come the moment of shaping the model you wet the part you want to shape, you shape the part and then you hold it in the shape you want until it's dry. This can be do e with simple wather but is usually better with a bit of MC.
>>554182That's terrible, it's upside down.
Hideo Komatsu's japanese macaque - second attempt
>>559144Nice one anon, it would benefit from an adapted color sided paper though.What paper did you used ?
>>559147It's a 110 g/cm^2 kahari - definitely gonna try to do it 2-colored
Thats my last one
>>554084Second attempt to make magic ball. First time took about 4 hours before I failed at gluing it together in the end.
>>559372i feel like you choosed the wrong orientation of the paper. Nice little doggy appart from that.
>>559407That's right, I realized already when I was finishing the model, but thanks!
>>557155I have tanteida magazines from #36 to #136 and I have never done any model
>>557158I loved it
>>559404wow nice! how tall is it?
>>559457The size of a two liter bottle.
Made it for my gf on Valentine's day
>>561777i like the leaves. Is it a kawasaki rose ? i can't tell from the picture. Also, did she like it ?
>>561778Thanks. It's the new kawasaki rose (aka angled kawasaki rose). And yes, she loved it.
Came out shitty but first attempt with both design and paper
>>561821Not sure why it was upside down
>>561823I think it turned out pretty darn good.
>>561823you're from down-under? ;) :D
>>554084heres my first attempt at jason ku's origami nazgul, it was using some shitty craft card 25cm so it was more of a test run, got a 60cm one i have been meaning to finish for years
>>562358this is the first piece of origami I made that I was proud of, 5 intersecting tetrahedra making some stellated icosohedron iirc
>>562359Great work! Did you think of that yourself, or is there a guide? I think I'd like to something similar now.
>>557182That would make great D&D monsters.
>>562361its from this book, I have a scan of it somewhere. It was in that big 16gb mega origami torrent, ill try and get just that book uploaded when I get home
>>562364>>562361page 235https:// mega.nz /#!vrI3DBJJ!G-3hF_N46B4c5iS-v8wDuLC2om91myIfIpiuul9pj08

>>554085Crease pattern plz
>>562605If it is not that one, that's a close variation.
Folded a ryujin 2.1 a while back, head still looks like a mess so I'll prob make a second one.
>>557391I like it. I think the scale of this one is perfect.>>561777Really nice work. I made this pug for my gf's birthday.>>563980looks like an absolute nightmare to fold. I'm very impressed.
>>562359This is such a nice relaxing model to make. I have 3 or 4 of them. But it's a bitch to put together without the webpage. Really fun puzzle to work out.Sadly you cant do much else with the units beyond making other eq triangle faced solids, as far as I can see.
>>563994can you share the file?
>>564097https://mega.nz/#!VB4lAZBa!BJMAaIUfysQ5uA-zNEC2dRWdYXRa3jzUZhPXIfv7M6AYou'll need pepakura to open the pdo file that I linked. The pdf template is attached, but I absolutely do not recommend going at it without the model open in pepakura.It took me about 20 hours to build, but it was my first time with papercraft. 10 to cut and crease all the pieces and 10 more to construct everything.
>>558447looks awesome i like the pattern
>>554086it looks like an adaptation to jo nakashima's wolfhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jYOOk-cJj0
first attempt at Robert J. Lang's butterfly
>>557391What's the name for that type of origami
>>558448I love this, did you find a book by Eric Joisel or an internet source?>>559372Also great work, do you have the pattern?>>561777Those leaves are crazy! I hope she loved it.>>563980This is absolutely wicked, I'm jealous. The scales look like they took forever.This is a first attempt at a dragon I made a few days ago following this video by Jo Nakashima https://youtu.be/kUsxMXwCW8A
>>564560The dwarf is just Joisel's usual dwarf. The one with the (partial) CP.
>>564532This one’s a tessellation, although one of the recursive (would this be the right word?) kind and not the tiling one.
>>554085Isn't that just a crumpled paper? Am I missing something?
>>564753Nope, they’re all trolling ya. It’s very obviously crunched up paper
>>564560I have The link of video The video of how to fold it https://youtu.be/N6lAph4gqwg
>>564566The CP for that one is pretty complete, he even added some shaping instructions iirc
>>564753Are You from Germany?
I enjoy modular stuff like this because its relatively simple to make, but the outcome is pretty impressive.
>>554084>I'm interesting in seeing /po/'s best work.then you've come to the wrong place, nothing but amateurs here.
>>565130but sometimes also tidious I need like 1-2minutes per piece and at >400count could end up with 14 hours.. or as I did multiple years because you're lazy as fuck
>>566075>>I'm interesting in seeing /po/'s best work.>then you've come to the wrong place, nothing but amateurs here.Whoever /po/'s people are and however they are skilled, there is a best work. It may be a crappy piece of (s)crap, it may be a masterful piece of art, but "best" doesn't imply a good quality. It's only relative to local /po/ work.
>>554085Now thats fucking neat
>>567402So, just trashing up the place?
Aunt made a dragon for me
Brian Chan's fiddler crab. Fun fold with a nice result so long as you have decently thin paper.
>>564753yeah... the joke
I haven't folded anything in five years. I was into origami for a few months and this is the best thing I ever folded; a rat. It's printer paper so I couldn't fold that many details and it doesn't hold the right shape. If I pull the tail back, arms in, and head done with my fingers it looks better. It always looks worse in pictures for some reason.
>>567857I like this rat. The ears are nicely built. Maybe you should get back into origami.
>>567507Why do origamists and papercrafters alike hate Golden Venture folding?
>>567935probably because it's objectively shitty.
>>567939My dudeIt's almost insulting how it's become the face of origami to the uninitiated. If you search 'origami' on Google you see a bunch of those.
>>554085Nice. I’m looking to get into the origami business. Any tips?
>>567981>hurr durr well first you gotta learn the Yoshizawa-Randlett diagramming system and then you have to read Origami Design Secrets cover to cover and then buy $50 worth of Thai Unryu paper from Origami ShopJust watch tutorials on YouTube. As always, recommended channels: Jo Nakashima, happyfolding, Jeremy Shafer, Tadashi Mori. Start with happyfolding’s ‘Simple’ playlist.
grane wid benis :DDDD
>>564531I really don't like that model. It’s WAY too complex for what it offers, probably the hardest 30-step model I’ve ever tried. Step 19 is a nightmare, and I’m no stranger to complicated steps like that one.
>>567857Nice.I don’t remember the steps for this and I do wish I was able to squeeze out more legs. I believe it’s based on crane base. Years have gone since I have done anything origami. Now that I’m older I think I have a better grasp on shaping vs adding details, when to add those details and how extrusions are created. I never understood how people got so many extrusions to make bug legs or spiders for example. Now I conceptually see it as a paper area trade off usually involving squash folding.I don’t think printer paper is viable anymore. Need thinner and larger.
>>568090looks like fucking garbage my dude jesus christ i dont think ive ever seen a model that badly done before. what even is it supposed to be. ive seen 5 year olds picking up the hobby for the first time make more coherent models. their folds are usually more accurate too
>>56815410/10Before seeing your comment I just assumed from the thumbnail that it was a rat folded from printer paper and didn't bother to open the full picture, but now I’m glad I didn’t miss seeing that, uh, thing. Man, those multi-layered valley folds on those wings (?) truly are atrocious.
>>567857I have folded this one as well, such a simple but fun model. Love making it.
>>569364I've actually made them in all sizes, this is my collection for when I'm bored at work.
Goldfish design and folded by me
>>564753Oh my god you made me spit out my drink. Please be a real post.
>>569364>>569365How about you use some good paper instead of folding that poor rat in a shitty paper?That's the kind of pictures that made Eric Joisel sad, seeing his models butchered like that...

Just made this.
Two tailed fox I doodled with receipt paper.
>>569765>>569772>Two tailed foxLiterally what? That’s a crane with extra legs or something. And you know the compound in receipt paper (the one that darkens under a fingernail) is carcinogenic, right?
>>569777I feel like he meant to attach a picture and forgot. It's impossible to be so retarded that you legitimately think that 2 legged crane is a fox.
>>569765cool! keep going , u will be there one day
Does anyone like, know what this is? My friend taught me how to make this probably about 9 years ago and its the only origami model I remember how to make anymore, but I don't know the name of the designer.
>>556946do you have a pattern for the small horse just above the dog?
>>569757Boohoo fucking snowflake
Can anyone share the dragon's PDF?
>>570631>the dragonWrong article.
I just made some tiny dinosaurs with 5x5cm paper I got.
>>570714Well good for you!!
Man i haven't folded in years, really wish I had the time and motivation to fold again. Here is a pheonix i made some time ago. I think the original model was desigbed by Satoshi Kamiya, not really sure though.
>>570813Here is also a wizard i made.>>557181>>557182Do you have the diagrams or cp to any of those models by any chance anon? They seem look really nice. Seeing Kamiya's work makes me want to try folding again.
this is the cooper hawk of robert lang, although it seems more another type of bird, even so I like the finished one
and here ... the owl of lang also
Quentin trollip toucan
>>571027Hey, long time no see ! very cool owl anon.
>>564753You're adorable and God loves you.
First folding in like... 8 months maybe ? The goal was to motivate me to get back at making origami. I chose some intermediate origami (water bufalo by nguyen hung cuong) so i wouldn't be discouraged and also a metalized paper so there is no preparation work and no long MC shaping.Well the folding was quick but i'm not really satisfied or thrilled with the result and since the paper is kinda meh i'm not motivated to do much shaping. Maybe i should have chosen a fancier paper... This model will probably finish in the bin.
>>554086I love it!
>>557158I love this
>>558452Literally post something youve made or fall into a hole somewhere
>>554182Beautiful Australian horse.
Looks as cool as dark mode.
Sad valentine day
>>554085Just thought of something: someone should make a schematic to fold a literal crumpled ball of paper. Like crumple a piece of paper, figure out all the necessary folds, and replicate it exactly.

>>558452I dont like you, and neather do you like yourself
Spent the last week making this bowl thingy. Anyone habe any diagrams for this 3D origami/golden venture folding/modular origami stuff? I find it quite calming doing these repetitive steps over and over to create something bigger. The paper I bought is just way too thick, made it harder to cut and fold everything
>>564532Clover pyramid or fujimoto's pyramid. Fujimoto is the guy that generally gets credit for the design
>>557157what diagram did you use for this great model
>>557157it is possible to know which diagram you used to make this beautiful model
One of my favorites. I'll admit that it wasnt folded very well, but I think it was the first time I successfully folded Satoshi's phoenix. I'm pretty proud of it
>>574116Here's another that I was particularly proud of. I love this model in general because of the pleating needed to make the scales. I couldn't get the face perfect because hamhands, but it still came out looking good
>>574116>folded Satoshi's phoenixIt was quite OK to me. What was the size of paper you used ?
>>570813>>570814Fucking jealous. Please tell me those are pretty tiny for such complex models
>>574118I dont even remember. I want to say 35x35cm. Anyway, there were a couple of tears in the paper in the back and in the tail. I just taped it up, and they were in places you couldn't see either. That's why I said it wasnt very good. Also, I remember the talons being a bit lack luster. I could just be overly critical of my work though.
>>574120what paper did you use ?
>>575015https://www.origami-shop.com/en/yellow-tissuefoil-paper-xml-207_215_2515_2183_624_354_356-3013.htmlIt says tissuefoil, but it wasn't? Maybe their idea of tissuefoil is different from what I was thinking. It was just thin paper that had a coating of stuff on one side

Satoshi Kamiya Rhino Tutorialhttps://youtu.be/ecUMUv78Gck
>>574117I also made one for a gift recently. Well it's more like i had to make a gift so i took one of my unfinished origami and shaped it. You can see it not shaped in the top of >>556946.I'm never really satisfied with the shaping of my koi carps...
>>570489The horse is from roman diaz, it's diagrammed in origami for the interpreters by roman diaz and it's the best origami horse IMHO considering it's only 50-60 steps. If shaped correctly it can look really good.
>>575076An other origami gift, this time i did not wanted to just finish the owl you can see in >>556946 because the paper was meh. So I refolded one with 35*35cm rice paper.I'm pretty satisfied with how it came out. The wings and the head are pretty clean but the claws are a bit messy if you look at them from the front (they're good if you look at them from the side).
>>575078Here is a side view of the owl. The shaping was faster than i thought, probably because a lot of things can be simply glued instead of using MC and letting it dry. I stuffed the back with cotton so it'll stay puffed, worked great, would use this technic again. I think the diagram (17th-tanteidan book) had some errors here and there, keep that in mind if you fold it. Overall fun model to fold, shaping works great and it really looks good for a model with only 130 steps.
>>575115Nope, and after looking at its origami i'm not sure what made you think that ?
>>575076What is the name and author of this model?
>>575144it's the koi carp of won park, usually it's folded from a one dollar bill. I think it's from the book named dollar origami or something like that .

>>578129oh nice monkey, I'd also always make joisel's rats or dwarfs and hide them all around the school building
The claws aren't folded correctly. I should fold it again with better paper. Kraft paper is good because it's cheap, but it shapes so poorly that it is not ideal for most models, unless it's insects.

Actually I just wanted to ask, is it necessary to keep MC in the fridge after you've mixed it with water? Supposedly it doesn't go bad like starch and I don't want it to gel up.Pic is one of my first tries at stabilizing with MC. The paper barely needed it but it was so satisfying.

Not the best thing I’ve ever done, but I was messing around one day folding absent mindedly and I made this shell. It’s flat and not super detailed, but considering I was just folding more or less randomly, it’s not bad.It wasn’t till I got near the end that I thought it could be something.
