Ever had the feeling that you can't do something that not many time ago you could do with no problem?

Kinda going thru that now. Been away from origami had rusted me a bit.

Need some ideas about the shaping of the front legs.

CP here:

Got the base down, still working on the folding sequence, but the front legs are driving me crazy.

If you want photos of the collapsed base I can provide them.

Any pointers are appreciated.

Wow, that model is very nice and clean.

May I ask you to post the collapsed base? Just for my own gain... 8) I have little idea how to start the folding.

Yep, like that, the upper part of the leg (the shoulder).

Bigger photos on my Flickr account.

Shaping may not be very hard, but I'm struggling to find time to fold for long periods of time. I just can't keep focused in to something for too long.

Thank you for the clear images! Folding this will be a nice challenge for me.

Now the only thing left to do is the head.

Very nice! What paper do you use?

I got stuck with the top middle part of the CP and I gave up after a couple hours getting nowhere...

It is a very cheap paper, but is great for test folding.

It is much like kraft paper.

The middle part of the CP is a bit tricky indeed, just don't give up.
