Hehe, I meant that the base is very simple to collapse :lol:. It is very straightforward for a boxpleated model and if you compare it to my other CPs, for example, you'll notice that this one has a lot less creases. The shaping part, however, is another story of course...

It's simple when compared with the Zombie CP.
Sure, this one has a lot of horizontal and vertical lines, but it's the amount of diagonals that really tell you how complex a box pleated design is.

My latest creations :

Medusa
A very fun model to create and fold. The challenge here was trying to fit as much snakes as possible on the head. As such, I managed to put 15 snakes (each with his own pair of eyes), making a really heavy head for medusa. The body and pose were mostly improvised since the important part of a medusa is her head.

Statue of Liberty
This is my submission for this month's folding challenge. This model was really hard to create and fold. I kept changing parts even while folding (this is my second atempt) and the shaping was very tedious as well. I tried to add as much details as I could so that she ressembles the real statue of Libery as much as possible.

Very impressive, both of them!

The Medusa reminds me a lot on Molly Grue in the film "The Last Unicorn" (one of my favourite movies) and the Statue of Liberty is just WOW.
I also hope that you plan on making instructions for more of your work, it's incredible :D

Thanks for your comments! Anna, I even know which character you are talking about.
As for making instructions or a book, the best I can do right now would be making CPs of my work. Drawing diagrams would be far too complicated unless I don't include the shaping process and making a photo-diagram would require me to have a better camera. But, with the right motivation, I just might give it a shot someday...

This is the best Statue of Liberty I've seen so far. I love the details and the the way her dress is pleated and draped is my favorite (I'm a seamstress/ fashion designer). The first came across it was on Flickr and I think you mention it was folded from a hexagon with wicked strange dimensions :shock: is that really true or was it my imagination? The comment was gone last time I checked.
Can't afford a pet? Fold one or a hundred! The best part is you don't have to feed it or worry about it making a mess!!!

I think you were looking at this, not Sunbust's version, LadyInRed.

Thank you, Whisper Puffin that was the hexagon one. These were both in the Original Designs pool on Flickr. I forgot about that version and then thought Sunburst's was folded from a hexagon....

whoopsie :oops:

Do you think there will ever be a diagram for Medusa or The Statue of Liberty? :-s

Thank you very much, LadyInRed! Although my statue of liberty is just made from a simple square...
Zorigami : I doubt there will ever be a diagram for both of those models (especially the statue). The closest thing I could possibly do would be a diagram for their base (which would still be very, very hard to do) or provide a crease pattern.
Bronners : I take it you are a beginner with crease patterns... If so, I wouldn't recommend attempting one of my models :wink:. You might want to check out a website that helps understanding them though (such as this one : http://spinflipper.com/origami/cp/toc.html.) By the way, each line represents a fold to be made in that location. Finding where to make them depends on the crease pattern.

My latest folds :

Pig by Quentin Trollip
A very cool model. My favorite part is the snout, although it is kinda hard to shape correctly.

Vampire
Here's something that I wanted to design a while ago. The color-changes on the hands and face where my main goals. Color-changing the face was a LOT harder than I expected though and I can't be sure if I'm going to try it often on future models. Furthermore, I believe it is possible to have bat wings on both arms.

Image


Skeleton ver.1.5
A major upgrade to my previous version and one that is more realistic. Here's what's different : much better skull, shoulder blades, knees and pelvis region. The eye-sockets came out bigger than I expected tough. The grid size used is 42 (an unusual number for boxpleating.)

Wow, that vampire is just amazing!

The skeleton is probably the most detailed I've seen so far made from one square.
Your designs are so incredible, I really love them.
