Thanks joshuaorigami and Razzmatazz! And yeah, I tend to agree Razzmatazz... but I was challenged to fold Link holding the Master Sword so I felt compelled to give it enough detail to distinguish it as such.

Here's another blast from my origami past. It's nearly my oldest model (and a seriously terrible photograph... sorry guys). It's a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

I like those fingers! And about Link-I think the Master Sword is his most distinguishing feature (and certainly my favorite). It definitely works-the sword is still simple (and "cartoony") enough to fit with the rest of it.

My goodness, Trouble... I'm sorry this reply is so late. I don't really keep as close an eye on my gallery as I should.

Here's the references for the gorilla model...

You basically just fold/unfold a kite base at two opposite corners. All other folds should follow fairly easily from these initial creases.

Aaaaand here's the CP for my Dracula model.

Image

It's a pretty simple CP and I would totally love it if someone tried their hand at folding it... I've yet to see any of my models interpreted by someone else.

I can take a stab at it tonight. Is that 6ths across the top?

It's not quite sixths. It's hard to describe, so here's a picture...

Fold the green lines to get the central pleat width.

juston--i don't know if anyone has said, but your aesthetic is very reminiscent of maekawa, with complex but very geometric figures. bravo for the designs, but also for not feeling the need to go the super-complex-hyper-accurate-96x96 grid-box pleat route to achieve your effects.

Yes, I agree with bethnor- I like your models because both the cp and the finished model are aesthetically pleasing. Your models are amazing but their impressiveness is taken to another dimension when you release the cp.. They are always ingenious and never more complex than they need to be.

Excellent work, as always, Juston. I've tried folding your gorilla, by the way, but I'm afraid my knowledge of non-box pleated CPs is rather limited so I was unable to finish it. Your Dracula looks quite straight forward, so perhaps I'll give it a go soon :)

Wow, thank you!

Bethnor, thanks for noticing my Jun Maekawa influence. He and Fumiaki Kawahata were the guys that inspired me the most when I got into origami a few years back. I guess they sort of set the tone for what I would aspire to aesthetically. I particularly love the way Maekawa's models are almost entirely made up of well referenced, geometric folds... this is something I do as well.

Anonymous Person, I'm glad the crease patterns are appreciated. I will continue to publish them. Thanks also for noticing the simplicity I strive for in the underlying structure of my models. I abandon more models than I ever finish because they're too difficult to fold for the results they achieve... and I spend as much time honing the CP as I do honing the finishing folds (sometimes more).

Hey, if you've got any questions Adam, please do ask and I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible. Were you able to collapse the base or were your problems with the finishing folds?
