Shuki Kato's book

Postby phillipcurl » November 26th, 2011, 12:36 am

***Topic name changed to "Shuki Kato's book" 11.15.2012***
Maybe if enough people want him to, he will.
If you do then post on here what models you want him to diagram and put in a book and also ideas for a book, then maybe he'll read this and see how many people want him to make a book, then he may make one. I know if he did, I would be the first to buy it.

YES.
But everyone has to understand that Shuki is the boss, if he says no then it's no.
But yea, I'd totaly buy it if such a thing is made.

Though I can't answer for if he should make a book, I would buy it immediately if he did decide to make one.
Same goes for Sunburst.

I was talking to him about it and he said that he really wants to make one eventually. He said his primary concern was that he may not have enough models to fill it up.

If he made a book called "Just Zoanoid Dragon" I'd probably buy it.

I actualy suggested that to him while we were talking. He said that it is very unlike he would make diagrams for that though, because the first 300 steps would be precreasing and the rest would be hell.

I would definitely buy a book from Shuki Kato. I wouldn't mind if it had only a few models in it, because they are great models!

Wow, thanks all of you guys!

If I did make a book, all of my figures (with few exceptions) would be complex models and would certainly not be accessible to a beginning folder. Maybe that's okay and maybe it's not.

Either way I will be making diagrams, here's a list of the models I think make the grade:

Super-complex
Giganotosaurus
Flying Kabutomushi or Atlas Beetle (or both? their structures are similar enough that they would share a lot of steps)
Western Dragon v1, v2, or v3 (ditto)
Asuka (needs upgrade before final diagrams)
Zoanoid Dragon (maybe...)
Evangelion unit 1
Ohmu
Guyver III

Complex
Spinosaurus (if I can update it to rival Kamiya)
Triceratops
Dragonfly
Goldfish
Flying Stag Beetle
Flying Hercules Beetle

Intermediate
Diplodocus
Dragonfly
Brachiosaurus

Well, I don't believe anyone that posted in this topic is a beginning folder :D
(if) you do make one, you should definitely include the crease patterns, also for an added challenge, like Kamiya does with his diagrams.
I would also love to see all those models diagrammed that you posted. They are all great models you made. Would you diagram for the public them, and then release them into a book, or just diagram a few for the public and put the rest into a book? Or not diagram any publicly?

If you do the ZD then you could do like the diagrams for andrey's mantis shrimp,
so you don't have to diagram the pre creasing.
That said, I would love to see the EVA, the western dragon, kabutomushi and atlas beetle diagramed.
But especialy the EVA.

take a page from berniacki. the books needn't contain dozens of diagrams to be sellable to the origami public. that said, shuki, i think you have a better shot of keeping your sanity if you fill it with some diagrams for intermediate models.

If so, we'll never see a book. It's not like that possibility (likelihood) is ever going to go away!
