I didn't know you were on here Sarah :) . Goridigami, may I suggest buying Robert Langs "origami design secrets", it has helped me understand crease patterns like nothing before(and yes most of the crease pattern links on here aren't worth your time, they didn't help me at least, Eileens did ). Not only did origami design secrets help me with crease patterns I've created my own fox in which will be my first model, and I will post diagrams as soon as I perfect it, and make neater diagrams of it.

fold-it-all:
Yes, thanks for your suggestion, you are right in your appraisal of Dr. Lang's book.
I have the book, of course, and greatly appreciate Dr. Lang's approach.
However, I was thinking more of an educational rather than scholastic book on crease patterns, for others probably more than myself.
I believe that there is room , in the origami world, for a comprehensive book exclusively devoted to crease pattern technique & philosophy.
May I wish success to all who cope with the mountains & valleys of Life,
with all its peaks & depths, as well as Origami .

by the way, Lang's book is all about mathematics. You could do a whole book about the artistic techniques in origami... :wink:

I suppose you both are correct, if its not your cup of tea. The only other tips for learning crease patterns i can see useful is to get a bunch of diagrams and fold them, then take them apart, giving you the crease pattern and you can study its mountain valley relationship. What would be even better is to find a diagram with a crease pattern that also exists, Kamiya's book has that so maybe that would work for you.

My suggestions aren't quite patterns, but here goes:

- Basic Wet Folding
I would personally love to see some wet folding in action... I tried looking for this on Youtube before but I keep getting videos on wet tissue folding or even dough folding :evil:

- Paper comparison
A one-minute-fold model showing the differences between all kinds of paper (kami, tissue, foil, copy paper, elephant hide, ... or even fabric and napkins), but I guess that could be accomplished with pictures as well and I haven't got a clue how complex that would end up to set it all up :oops:

And may I just say... Thank you for your videos so far, I've learned a lot from them =D> You solved the mystery of open and closed sinks for me when I first started =D>

I've finally come round to starting with the tessellation technique videos. Six of them are up now on my website and YouTube. I also decided to do a video each on how to make tissue foil and double tissue. I was a bit reluctant, because there are videos out there on how to make tissue foil already, but decided the verbal instructions I added merited another video of the kind.
Finally, I also did a video with a sort of review of Eric Gjerde's book "Origami Tessellations". Get it, it's awesome. :)

I won't post the direct links here, because really there's nine of them... but the general ones will lead you on the way: http://www.happyfolding.com and http://www.youtube.com/user/AdamsSara

Next up are more tessellation technique videos. I also was able to reach Hugo Pereira and Charles Esseltine, so that's added more todos on my list. I saw that someone did a video on Charles Esseltine's dragon already, so I'll have to check the quality of that before I decide whether I'll make an instructional video on the model. I'll probably also be doing a video on Hugo Pereira's "Jack in a Box", which lots of people on YouTube have requested.

Happy folding,

-- Sara

Ah, question: On YouTube I have the option to make videos available for download. I've done that for some videos (mostly the technique stuff), but not all. Do you download all videos, or just the one's I've enabled download for? I'm fine with people downloading all videos, as long as it's only for personal use, but am interested to hear whether the YouTube option I use makes any sense.

As mentioned, as long as it's only for personal use I'm fine with people downloading (all) my videos. And it does mean that you think they're good enough to watch them time and again. :)
I just wanted to know whether people actually use the YouTube download option, or whether they use other programs to simply download all videos they're interested in. Sounds like the latter is the case. Good to know.
