That boar does not look like a boar...
But not folding those tusks makes a fine pig.

Did you try a different color?

Also R.I.P. in peace old thread.
>>
>>582959
>Did you try a different color?
No, because it isn't a boar shape. Colour would not change the result.

I like the little changes you made, definitely an improvement.

I just finished a rooster, very neat.
>>
>>583064
What changes?
Your rooster is neat indeed! Why not let it stand by itself?
>>
>>583060
Which one(s) are you having trouble with?
Post a picture of where you are stuck, someone can probably help you.
>>
>>583065
Unless I'm mistaken the beak was originally crimped, but the pinched beak looks better imo. Also the tail pleats went all the way yp but you curved the top. Very nice.

>>583067
Absolutely we will try and help! Don't beat yourself up >>583060 this scan is rather blurry, some of the steps are unclear.
>>
>>583068
I see. Well, in fact, I couldn't tell about the beak because diagram is, as you said, rather blurry.
As for the tail's feathers, that's my habits (same with feathered wings).
Also, I folded the bottom of the wings as mountain folds instead of reverse folds...

Just noticed you omitted part 3 of step 43 (which makes the "collar" rounder), but the pattern from your paper really fit with the underneath layer (it makes a green oval spot!).

Well, I folded those to try and help >>583060 . Even if I did not do it with great precision, I think I can give advices now.

My rooster was born a little... different. I tried with 15x15 and I ended up ripping a part of the rooster's back while folding a step with multiple layers. I will definitely try again.
>>
>>583178
It looks like your paper's quality is bad. If you try with a better paper, it will definitely improve the result.
>>
>>583179
I haven't started the new version yet but one of my friends came over and immediately recognized it as a rooster and complimented it so it's something I guess

you ever get so bored from quarantine that you make a three headed dragon?

Yes, I agree!

>>583383
Well, I haven't been in quarantine, but here is that little lizard.
It somehow took some time to fold (repeating 3 times a long sequence for each head), but it is not very difficult.

That dragon is so sad being alone, anyone willing to fold a 3-headed friend?

Nice one! Welcome into the 3-headed family. How long did it take it to be born from that printer paper?
(And pretty bowl too.)

Anyone else who want to fold one? Because 3-headed dragons like to be 3 (at least!).
>>
>>583417
It started thursday night and finished friday morning, i'd estimate about 6 hours. took way too long but im happy with it.

I'd say it depends on your origami habits. I folded mine with 15 cm duo paper, but it ends up quite small (as per attached picture). A neck (or tail) length is around 3 cm, if it gives you an idea.
>>
>>583430
TY, I'll probably try with something bigger as I tend to accidentally rip my kami when folding multiple layers
>>
>>583431
And post your result here after you are done!

>>583430
I like that you can still see the outline of the bowl through the paper

Here's my crappy rat. I'm a beginner so I'm planning on working though each animal to hopefully reach the three-headed dragon before this thread dies.
>>
>>583763
That crappy rat is not crappy, and the paper you chose suits it very well.
>>
>>583763
I'm currently trying to make the rat. I'm a complete loss on how to do step 8.

>>582941
Enyone else trying to fold a senbazuru (1000 cranes)?
I’m already folded 209 little buddies.
>>
>>583832
You'd rather fold 1000 three-headed dragons to fit in this thread.

This time a cherry-red ox and orange tiger. I found the legs hard to shape for both models so they ended up a bit wonky. At some early stage I screwed up the tiger so I kinda gave up on it at the end (the camera angle hides some of the glaring imperfections). I'll probably re-attempt before moving on to the rabbit.

>>583778
Thank you. The paper color reminded me of eggs.

>>583823
I was lost at that step for a while too, but I'm not sure how best to describe it. If you're still having trouble a day later, I can draw a diagram showing where each edge ends up.
>>
>>583832
why are you wasting your time doing dumb shit like this? dedicate your time doing a satisfying complex build rather than the same monotonous shit 1000x.
>>
>>583879
Maybe some people like to do these! Why are you to judge! Let people freaking fold and make what they want in their free time if it makes them happy.

I've been working through this for the last few days and I can't help but feel like I have some kind of learning disability.
Everything goes well, but then there's an instruction that I just cannot decipher even after 20 minutes and by then the paper is all crumpled from failed attempts.
What should I do when that happens? Move on to the next one and try again later?
>>
>>583904
try some easier models by searching on youtube. Jo Nakashima is good as he also shows the diagrams, so you can connect the instructions to the physical move.

much as i respect montroll, his diagramming and instructions are ass and pretty hard to follow as a beginner.
>>
>>583904
which model/step #? I'll try and fold it with you.
>>
>>583907
Thank you anon, It was step 19 of the tiger.
>>
>>583908
Ok I took a few pics from multiple angles. Hope it helps.
>>
>>583908
Another one
>>
>>583909
>>583910
I didn't realise it was that simple. I feel like an idiot.
Thank you anyway, anon.
>>
Finished the tiger. The diagramming is pretty terrible and the resolution doesn’t help so I found the book in Google books
>>
I'm completely stumped by step 17 of the rooster.
These are just normal folds, right?
>>
>>583988
Scratch that, I figured it out.
My only advice is that the diagram is somewhat misleading. If you move the corner of the last fold you made to where it is in the next step, it'll do what you want with some help.

I'm having trouble with monkey step 17, did I do the push fold incorrectly or?
>>
>>584288
Looks good to me so far.
For step 17, you have to extract the corner of the paper, which was folded in step 7. The rest of the model doesn't get changed (but it helps if you open the bottom part a bit when pulling that corner).
>>
>>584289
Amazing, Ty anon!

Glad I could help.

Is it a bunny?

It was meant to be but she couldn't do it.
>>
>>582941
Quite funny that the chinese dragon is one of the easier ones. Typically any variation of a dragon is a pain.
>>
>>584365
It is a Montroll creation: there is usually no too much complicated step in his models.

I'm not sure I did steps 14 and 17 right on the heart but my first folds are done! Gonna try something harder now, maybe the sea serpent.
>>
>>584614
It looks like you did these steps correctly, anon.
>>
Can someone give me a hand with step 14 on the sea serpent? I'm really not sure what I'm supposed to be folding, and googling "crimp fold" didn't really help.
>>
>>584636
Crimp fold is a combination of reverse folds.
So, for the top part and the bottom part, separately, you have to inside-reverse fold on the creases made in step 12; then, inside-reverse fold again, on the creases made in step 10.

Thank you! Here's my sea serpent, it turned out kinda rough but it was still fun. Haven't decided what to try next...
>>
>>584638
Not the one that helped you out, but your sea serpent turned out really nice.
>>
>>584638
Nice job indeed!
For the next one, that's your choice of course, but if you want to directly use the experience you gained from that sea serpent, you could try folding the western dragon (which is like a sea dragon with legs).

I gave it a shot but it was definitely too advanced for me, I ended up ripping one of his feet and simplifying some of the harder steps. I'll try some of the animals next.
>>
>>584684
It still turned out really good, though.
>>
>>584684
Sorry for the inadequate advice then...
But as >>584687 said, you did quite well!
>>
>>582941
step 17 of the horse is kicking my ass, how is that fold supposed to be made?
>>
>>584720
Make a reverse fold on the bottom left first (the part with a diagonal mountain fold, not very visible..).
Then, open the layer following the long horizontal valley fold.

Just finished folding the suits of cards (7x7 cm squares). Club’s scuffed tho...

Is there a reason why the scan is blurry? I'm thinking of buying the paperback and scanning it myself if the only reason is because it's an old scan. Reply to me if anyone wants the scan, because if there's no interest I'll probably just use the paperback
>>
>>585450
AFAIK (OP here), there is no commonly available better quality scan of that book. I found many sources over the years , but all of them were this exact same file, or even worst quality.
>>
>>585450
Scan it if you want, I couldn't find a better copy on the web at all!
>>
>>585453
>>585455
alright, the book is coming in tomorrow. Is there a filesize limit on this board I should know about (new to origami and /po/)
>>
>>585460
For /po/, it's 8 MB, or you can use an outside filehost and post the link.
>>
>>585460
I just got the book, currently scanning it. It'll take a little while so if anyone wants a higher quality scan of a specific model LMK and I'll post it.

I love tessellations but man, folding the grids is always so tedious.

Anyway, I'll finally be trying this turtle that has been haunting me since I saw the tutorial go up years ago. Wish me luck.
