I've been teaching for a year now and had no time to fold or do any hobbies whatsoever. I had a look at your post this morning and had to give the shrimp model a go. My fingers are a little rusty and I used glassine paper to get the right aesthetic, which didn't help with such a small piece. But it's been enough to get the bug for origami again. Thank's very much Anon!
>>
Thank you for sharing your work!
I really like most of your models.
As Anon said, the diagrams could be clearer here and there and it would be of help to have a papersize recommended.
other than that: great work!

Clam instructions confusing asf looks like shit
>>
>>579138
Looks pretty good, all you have to do is pull out the second pink layer abit on either side and fold the tip to shape the bill. This will make the layer ripple and you can make the eye shape.

>>579140
I do understand the convenience of it, but some people have tried to edit the file and it messes with the dolphin model a bit.

>>579142
I don't know what the last part of that means, but no I don't do commission. Even if I wanted to film folding it, I don't have the equipment to film it properly.

>>579166
The clam turned out very nice, I like that color! In retrospect making diagrams reminiscent of a time most folders might not be familiar with or have the same nostalgia towards as I do wasn't the savviest idea.

>>579171
Gracias right back, man! My shitty dragon will be seen around the world!

>>579232
I'm glad you're getting back into it! Hobbies are there for when you need them, it's like reuniting with an old friend. The shrimp looks great. I really need to use stands more, my models are always falling over.

>>579246
Sorry if the diagrams are confusing, but I can answer the paper thing. I use homemade tissue foil, with standard sizes of 17, 8.5, and 4.25 inches.

The octopus is 17 inches because of the blintzed base, the bacteriophage is a hexagon from a 17in sheet, and the lophorina is a 2x3 rectangle from a 17in sheet.

Everything else can be made with and 8.5 sheet, and the 4.25 if you got the patience.

>>579247
Rice paper is pretty sustainable, you can make recycled paper, and I think all those college textbooks no one reads are probably more devastating than my book

>>579333
Thank you very much! It seems the lion is the standout model for most people.

Oh neat no one has tried this gimmick before.

Also is "black dicks" exclusively a type of gay porn?

What about black dicks banging women? That seems to be popular.

What about lesbian strap-on porn with black dildos, does that count? I mean they are porn and there's a black dick.

Sorry, I'm not the expert you seem to be on this subject, so I'd like some clarification.
>>
>>579362
my main recommendation would be to add at least numbers to the steps (if only so i can tell you more easily which steps suck) and maybe some minor text hints here and there.
>>
>>579377
Wouldn't it be faster to talk to me at this very moment? I already explained why I chose to make the book the way it is, if you're stuck, I am literally just a message away from helping.

Also wording isn't good because 1. international folders would see moon speak and 2. I've established before some people on this board don't know technique names, so it might be a waste of time and space.

If you tell me where you are confused I promise I will film to the best of my ability a short gif explaining the step or talk you through the fold (and this goes to everyone else as well obviously).

I understand some folders are from different time periods and the sacred texts look like gibberish. I made an old school book and that might confuse people, so I left the line open for dialogue. It's not like I have 10,000 people reading the book so I can get a little hands on with the help.

Do you still need help or did you figure it out? I understand the confusion of a big collapse move like that.
>>
>>579378
Maybe it's just something to keep in mind incase you plan to do a revision or a printed publication. I don't know if you ever folded from a complex japanese book, but they're self explanitory despite being moon runes. And then there's books like Oriol Esteve's. I respect him as a folder, but his book makes me want to punch him in the throat. His book has a lot of ambiguity, and it can tak on time just to figure things out, even more if you interpret it wrong. I'd be be doing crease patterns if I want to solve a fold.
I'm trying the lion right now. One thing I see missing from this diagram opposed to a really good diagram are well defined precreases. It might double the steps because of the way you're doing it, but I feel its worth it, because your models are really nice.
I might ask questions later. I'm working on your lion. I particularly like that one.
>>
>>579382
I think I understand where you're coming from. I made this book like old montroll, yoshizawa, and kirschenbaum diagrams. I wanted the focus to be on one motion to the next, but yeah it can be annoying when some precreases are shown and then a major fold is done.

I didn't have an editor for this book so these diagrams are basically a flattened way of how I see and do my folds, not the most universal method. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you very much for considering my models nice. If you have questions about the lion I am happy to help.
>>
>>579381
i still need help. its beyond me
>>
>>579378
nah i'm not confused on any of the steps, this is just general feedback if you care about improving your book. occasionally the order isn't clear when there's one large step in the middle (for example, page 14). i'm pretty sure most people understand numbers.
not adding something because some people might not understand it is some backwards ass logic because no one ends up worse off for adding it. for example in the bottom left step of page 15 (jfc just put step numbers) the hint 'double rabbit ear' wouldve been nice. i figured it out fine, but since the level of folding for this book seems novice, expecting them to deduce that isn't necessarily reasonable. it's the kind thing that filters exactly the type of people these models would be great for.
i appreciate you're willing to help everyone and you've made the book in the style you wanted, so it doesn't change the colour of my day whatever you do. there's no reason you can't do things in an old school way with modern quality of life features though.

How do you sink fold the lion's tail on page 105? Stuck on this step:(
>>
>>579765
You'll probably be better than me before you know it, just keep practicing.

And thank you for reading my book! It's not all that surprising that I made the book here. This was my first origami forum, I mentioned how helpful (though sometimes disrespectful) /po/ has been throughout the years.

There are plenty of folders that could make their own models on this board, they just don't want to or haven't tried. It's a hobby enough to fold other people's work, and many are satisfied with only that. I haven't seen many designers on this board since I started around 09', so this board just attracts folders If you go to other forum, there are folders and designers.
>>
>>579868
If you'll notice the third step on the top, the one were you fold the top flaps of the tail inward, there is a fold around the butt. That will make the sink less convoluted, but also very slightly closed at the top. Make the creaseline up with the folded top flaps of the tail.

Make the precreases of the sinks.

Lifting the tail, open up the are between the tail and leg, it'll be like a three side pyramid. Follow the precreases and make sure to keep that top bit folded.

Let me know if that was helpful or you need further assistance

This is so neat! My first day here and already very helpful guides. Thank you.

>When I first posted this online, I received a lot of harsh criticism. Although most of it was typical internet trolling,

That's still a shitty dragon though.

Yeah that was a less than subtle nod. I still like that paper, not enough people go all out with paper choice.

This book was a long time coming, and yet the dragon remains the same. Shitty.

>>581353
Since I almost never fold other's origami, I don't get the hoarding appeal. But if that's your thing, I'd be happy to have my stuff added to the pile.
>>
>>581353
>>581495
The last time I checked, collecting and hoarding are two different things. Just because people like to download a lot of pdf files doesn't make them hoarders. They just want a variety from different authors and creators, which is why I added Nepa's book to my collection.
>>
>>581496
Yeah I guess you're right. I usually differentiate between collectors and hoarders by the scrutiny with which they add to their ranks. Not trying to cast any negative light on the practice, it just seems foreign to me.

Hey OP, did you make the illustrations in this book yourself? I am also working on a tutorial book, but I did my illustr. traditionaly with ruler, t squate and the like, and scanned them, but are not great. I tried krita but the its grid and ruler doesnt help. I wanted something which is a fast as krita to draw in, but which tells me the lenghts of my lines and angles as I am making them. I did try a 2d autocad, or an alternative, cant remember, but its was too complex. Not complicated, but complex. I need to make a lot of simple illustratios, not a few complex ones. With autocad it takes too long to do a few lines.

What program did you us OP? how did you make your illustrations? Dont have to explain the whole process, just the tools used by you and I will try them out. I look at your book and I can tell its exactly how I want mine to look.

>>581525
Inkscape is a popular open source vector drawing tool. The simplest CAD tool I've found is A9CAD.
>>
>>581528
thx, will check them out tomorrow or in weekend when I have time
>>
>>581525
I used Inkscape. Jo Nakashima has some tutorials for how to use it, but you can figure it out with some trial and error.

The only problems I had were

1) Moving larger numbers of layers with a lot of points would freeze my pc if I forgot to turn off node snapping.

2) Double clicking will ungroup layers, which sucked because I had a touchpad.

3) You can't turn everything into a single object, only group it.

4) You have to splice each object individually, so keep background clutter to a minimum.

Last one is a headache, and results in the most work. But I haven't seen anything better for free.
>>
>>581541
thx again, I will band my head against the problem until I can figure it out, seeing how you could achieve that pdf it should be doable, you the man
>>
Neat book. I made a clam, a brittle star, a (scuffed) small shrimp. I tried and failed to make the no-cut traditional goldfish twice...

I'd advise numbering the steps, using symbols to identify the lines/points of reference for less obvious folds and maybe showing a "mid-fold" diagram for more complex combinations of folds, it'd definitly help less seasoned folders.
>>
I folded a wolf, it looks really cool (it looks kinda mauled because I am a beginner and I used IKEAs origami paper) but I found some steps confusing (second to third step in top row and first to second in bottom row on page 103), showing some in between steps (even as a photos in footnotes) would make folding this model much more enjoyable. Thanks for sharing those models anyway, folding this wolf was fun.

I've mentioned this before, but since this was all just me slapping it together, I didn't have an editor or tester to tell me where the confusions might be. If you tell where you're having trouble I might be able to guide you through it.

Looks great! Looking back I can see how those steps could be unclear, but you got them in the end, so that's a relief. I'm actually more surprised that you were able to understand the step for the ears, I was iffy about that one.

I am new to origami and I decided to try the octopus in this book. It has been really confusing and the instructions don't make much sense.

This step is multiple sinks, the lines are showing the direction of the folds.

Lift the flap up. You'll see the two sides meeting in the middle. Put the flap back down and pull those two sides out so it looks like it did on pg 95. I've attached a picture for reference

You'll see lines like the ones in red. Just pinch along the outermost one, fold it in, reverse along the next lines, and so on. You should be doing this while putting the two sides back together like they were in the picture you posted

Here's a video showing multiple consecutive sinks.

Thanks to your help I was able to progress further. However, I have gotten to another roadblock. It seems like this was too ambitious for my first try at origami, but to be fair the dude that wrote this said it was surprisingly simple. I am still going to try and finish it but I need some more help. It seems like in the book every tentacle is separated, but mine are all connected by accordion like paper from the sinks. I don't think I did something wrong but I don't understand how I am supposed to do this next step. Pic related.

>>583032
I'm the dude that wrote that, sorry bout that. Looks like you crimped rather than sank, leading to the accordion look.

You got the basics done very well! Don't forget that paper is really important as well. I typically use homemade tissue foil. If I used the same paper it'd probably turn out the same.

In unrelated news, this ebook has been approved on the origamiusa website (they even approved my request for a zero dollar price tag!), and I was recently contacted by a member of the Malaysian Origami Society.

I'm so thankful to everyone here and elsewhere in the community!

>>
>>583578
Damn Nepa, looks good. You got any diagrams for it yet? Or, are you working on making another book with it in it?
>>
>>583579
Nah I don't have anything planned like that. I'm just trying to consolidate threads and let the other ones I've made die off, so I'll be putting any designs I come up with here for the foreseeable future.
>>
>>583592
How do you make new designs, do you just start with a base and keep throwing techniques and the different sections until it works? How many revisions till you have a final piece?
>>
>>583593
I doodle sometimes, just picking a random base and folding it until an idea pops up. Other times I have plans, but they often fall through/shift dramatically as the process goes.

This time I had an idea in mind for what I wanted, but the end result is a lot different, ie, I wanted a cute simple bumblebee, ended up with a wasp. The wasp and clione models are both just traditional bases with a grafted section in the middle.

The wasp isn't actually good at all from a design sense, since it required a large sheet of paper to make it look even remotely nice, despite the lack of limbs. The head is a sink down and then sinks to thin what is essentially the top of a bird base, so the neck looks terrible (the torso covers it though). I want to use the head in the future, but with a better base.

The torso is a grafted bird base flap turned 180 degrees around and is actually the same size as the abdomen, which will tell you how much paper I wasted just for the seamless color change. Which then didn't matter because the abdomen has a seam.

The way you described my design process is pretty spot on I suppose, there was a design thread that kinda went bust because of low involvement, but I described in great detail the thought process of my lion. I didn't star out making a lion, it was a happy accident I took advantage of. The only revision for the wasp was the head, the rest I figured out immediately. That's likely due to experience rather than skill though.

Are you interested in designing, do you have an idea of what you want?
>>
>>583600
I know, I just realized I called it a torso instead of thorax, my brain is still waking up.
>>
>>583600
Thanks for the reply, yes I'm interested in designing but don't have any specific goal yet, just want to wrap my brain around how others do it so I can do my first attempt with some confidence. From your reply and Lang's described method it sounds like starting from a base and having a good repertoire of techniques is the way most go about design, I suppose knowing which technique to use where is something that comes with experience. Did you read Origami Design Secrets at all? I'm only a couple chapters in, enjoying it so far - though it's a little wordy in some areas
>>

I read some of it, but I like trying to figure some things out on my own as well, since I feel it gives my work a bit of my personal style. Even if I can't make the most insane models, I don't want to end up making carbon copies of another artists work. Plus Lang is on a more technical spectrum, so his book only gives half the lesson, the other half being artistic expression.

Not that there's anything wrong with technical artists, and their work is incredible, but sometimes it's nice to see a model and think "I never would've looked at it that way" or "I know exactly who made this based on their unique style," and unfortunately that sort of variety in presentation appears less and less the more technically exact the model is.

Regarding your assessment of Lang and mine statements, it is absolutely necessary to learn techniques, and I genuinely think (maybe this is a biased opinion) that what techniques you prefer and how you learn them affect your growth as an artist.

If you're getting bored of Lang's book, take a break and fold something. Try and predict how it will come together, envision the next steps.

Or just try and make something yourself. Start with a traditional base and go from there, or try a polygon or rectangle (eltists be damned).

Start making things because it's fun, don't let it become a chore until you're skilled enough to know you can do better.

If you have any ideas, or need help, let me know, I'd love to have a brainstorming session.

Thanks for the continued advice. I'll start playing around with traditional bases, maybe I'll hammer out a couple of each so I can easily jump from one to the other as I try out different techniques. At this stage if I make a dog out of a 4 limb base I'll be ecstatic, I plan on having fun with it. I'll continue to post as I progress, I look forward to your input then

Just finished designing this, a sad frog for my sister

That's pretty cool, Nepa.

Any chance you might diagram this frog and Lt. Dan?

Thank you! I'll post the full display when I'm done.

>>583674
I don't have any plans for another book or diagrams atm. I don't have enough models to make a book, and I'm not 100% satisfied with either Sad Frog or Lt. Dan, so I want to hold off diagramming.

But as I said I am making a bday gift for my sister, so here is a little hat. Need different colors

haha funny frog

haha funny paper frog

i'm working on the mouse now, and I have some trouble at a certain spot, i'll try again but it got me thinking it's really nice to have numbered steps so if you do need help it's very simple to point out where you're stuck
just my 2 cents anyway

I'm struggling to recognize what to do at step 2 of page 103

It's not right to laugh at depression, that frog is doing the best it can!

>>583784
As I've mentioned before, the lack of numbers was by design, but I can understand the problems it caused. If you let me know the page and specific step, I can try and help.

1. Straighten the pleats and line up with the center.

2. Create a new line between those two arrows that is parallel to the layer underneath.

It's actually a sort of stretch where you manually align the straight lines of the arms and make the flaps around the neck long enough to swivel later

If these instructions are not clear, I can take a shitty video some other time. Let me know.

Finished my sister's birthday present. I call it "A sad frog's solo act."
>>
>>583942
I like it, it looks like he got stood up by the rest of his barbershop quartet
>>
>>583944
Lmao he is supposed to be a member of a quartet , but I never of the that angle. I made it with the idea that he could find anyone else.
>>
Shoudln't it be, "The Basis* of Folding"
instead of, "The Bases of Folding"

or maybe, "The Basics of Folding".
>>
>>584002
I actually explain that near the end of the Introduction

Tl;dr the plural of base and basis is bases.
>>
>>579165
not great book instruction not really clear, bats is not possible I got stuck p55, rat was ok, but I had to guess couple of time
>>
>>584123
blow it out your ass. bitchin' about a free book. that's even low for beaners.
>>
>>584123
I'm sorry you feel that way. The bat diagram is not mine, it was made by another artist who I sent photodiagrams to for his collaborative book. Since the model is mine and I got his permission, I took the assets he made and arranged them to fit the dimensions for my book.

Pg 55 is showing the steps to make a blintzed bird base. Perhaps this video will help: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Fjk-kbWzaME

If you have any more problems, let me know

That is really cute! I hope that she liked it!

Can anyone help me with steps '5' and '6' of page 113, in the crab model? I feel like my attempt doesn't really match the pics in the instructions, but that flap was the only thing I could think of to pull out.

Also, assuming the model is meant to be asymmetrical here, should the flap on the back (after repeating the steps on the other side) still be pulled out on the right, or should that now be done on the left to keep both 'flaps' on the same side of the model?

Thanks in advance for any help - also, the book is really high quality for something completely free, the effort you put into it is very much appreciated.
>>
>>584163
You pulled out the correct piece. The step after is to tuck the flap you pulled out on the right into the cavity on the left, then, as you lift the bottom up, fold the left side up along the lines. When you repeat it behind do the right side again, they should not be on the same side.

I would suggest however that you use better paper. Maybe not the first attempt if you aren't sure, but if that's printer paper it's not gonna look pretty at the end. This is an older model with a quite a few flaws tucked underneath a pretty exterior

made a new crab design
>>
>>584199
looks really nice. I've found lots of crab designs that require box pleating, does yours? If not it might be worth diagramming for more beginner folders
>>
New set piece for my crab models. I call it "Southclaw vs Cancerpuncher."
>>
>>584208
It does, but it's not too complex. A 9x9 grid

You probably know it already (and it possibly is not a recent fact), but let's spread the world here: your ebook is referenced on Gilag Aharoni website.

Loses points for scissors but the rest of it is good.
>>
>>584506
I do know, I contacted him about hosting it! He and sara Adams both agreed to put it on their site (I believe Sara linked to Gilad's site).

OUSA agreed to host the book as well, and uphold the zero dollar price!

I am very grateful to them for their kindness.

>>584507
I only ever use scissors to get rectangles, half triangles, or polygons
>>
Octopus is neat! Tissue foil makes it pop, even with a 6" paper
>>
>>584577
What do you mean by pop? Visually? Or did the model split open?
>>
>>584581
Visually, makes it stand out
>>
>>584577
>>584584
That's good to hear. The model pictured in the book was from 17in paper and nearly split down the middle.

I'm glad their is another tissue foil enthusiast on the board! I know most people have left it behind, but I don't know if I'll ever use anything else for my models.
>>
>>579102
CONGRATS!
>>
>>579102
for the firefly, page 29, how do you get a square from folding a triangle in half several times?
>>
>>585162
it's a preliminary base
>>
>>579102
Dude this is amazing. Thank you so much!
>>
>>579102
I'm a visitor just checking out boards I wouldn't usually. I think it's lovely you've created a book of designs and I'll be sure to try some. Must admit you lost me at the second fold for the fanciful snail lmao.
>>
>>579102
I accidentally clicked the banner for this board but I respect your passion
Good work
>>
Out of curiosity, may I ask you if you got any paypal donations from the book?
It's probably quite rude of me to ask and I perfectly understand if you don't want to share this info.
>>
Nice dude
>>
>>585170
No problem dude, thanks!

>>585172
I haven't checked any other boards in a while, where do you typically frequent? And thanks for trying some of my work, although if you're just starting out even the initial models are kinda difficult. The first few steps are precreasing for a preliminary base. Many of the models in the book use it.

>>585215
It was more obsession than passion by the end lmao. What board do you normally use?

>>585253
It's no problem. I got three. It was enough to buy a two pizza special, so that was cool. My sister also gave me money, but it was actually repaying a debt.

>>585312
Thank you!
>>
>>585326
I don't know why Google keeps unfilling the name
>>
Man this is neat, thanks OP!

Anyone has Usa Convention 2020?
