The one in Origami Sculptures

I keep hitting a wall when it comes to shaping the head.

The head is very hard to shape with origami paper, If you want it to look good I suggest folding it out of tissue foil.

I'll try to help if I can. The way I do it is I pinch the very front of the head, the beak portion, and push it into the rest of the model. When you do this the goal is to get the rest of the head, the part that you aren't pinching, to inflate. This model is particularly goofy and rarely gives the desired results. If interested, I recommend Montroll's penguin from Origami Inside-Out. That penguin model rocks!
