I did a beholder, too, some time ago.
Yes, I am that Joseph Wu. Not that it really matters. And please call me Joseph or Joe. "Mr. Wu" is my dad. :)

Daydreamer, that Xill is pretty cool, and you're a brave folder to attempt a completely theoretical and untested crease pattern. :D

Weapons would be quite straightforward to add as strip grafts along the sides. This would also give more room for the head (which means more details), in addition to padding out the legs - a good thing for model stability. It could be interesting to throw in elbow spurs as well.

After a long time an updated version of my griever is here. Folded from 25cm x 25cm of Japanese foil

The CP is still the same as the Griever 1.6 I posted earlier, but the folding sequence and the details are much improved.

I also quite like the backview of the model :-)

So long and keep folding ^_^

Groovy design!

Any of you lot ever play RuneQuest? It was around at the time of 2nd Edition AD&D. The rules were far more complex than most games that I've come across, and a simple fight would take hours. I have a doctorate from Cambridge, and I still don't understand the magic system.

Anyway, whereas Runequest may have had over complex rules, it has a few interesting creatures, which should be considered for this challenge, too. Some of these include:
The Walktapus. A creaure of chaos, with a humanoid body, and an octupus for a head
The Jack O'Bear. A bears body, with a pumpkin for a head
The Duck. Essentially, a hobbit sized half man, half duck. Latin, <i>Anthropomorphus donaldii</i>

Now, all of these would seem fun to fold. I'm sure they could be googled...
I once set up an origami PLC. But the business folded.

Ha, no, never got past the first page of the rulebook either. HeroQuest was about all I could do. Never finished the King of Dragon Pass game either.

Lance & Laser does HeroQuest miniatures. They're unpainted, but it should give an idea of what the critters look like.

I proof folded Gerwin´s diagrams for the griever version 1.6 (just made little adjustments to the head and in final shaping):

A very nice design with soon available diagrams :D

As Anna already promised, the diagrams are now available at our Origami Austria Homepage in diagrams.

Enjoy them and feel free to tell me about any mistakes you find. :-)

I definitely won't draw another 100+ steps diagram anywhen soon....
So long and keep folding ^_^

Wow, that must have been a lot of work to diagram. :shock:

I feel obligated to spend the time to fold one now.

Nice grievers! The black and yellow contrast look really good.

Thanks for doing the diagrams too - it's a lot of work, for sure!

Centaur almost (but not quite) by Eileen Wolf from MC-treated triple tissue paper (description of paper here) sized 22cm x 22cm.
Image
Image

The basis for this model was the CP posted by Wolf in her blog: http://spinflipper.com/blog/?p=136

I modified it (as suggested by Wolf) to have a wider river between fore and hind legs and adding grafts on the left and the right to get back to a square. It ended up as 40x40 grid instead of the original 36x36 grid.
Moving the hind legs a bit outwards gave a longer tail.
The two grafts at the sides also gave longer (almost too long) arms.

With this description you should be able to figure out the CP for my version of the Centaur yourself :)
So long and keep folding ^_^

I saw this topic and couldn't resist throwing in my two cents...

Image

These are some very common inhabitants from deep within the d20 universe... I admit it's not entirely pure origami, I used some creative finishing techniques... :lol: They are based on Kazuo Haga's tetrahedron, octahedron, and cube, diagrams from "Origami for the Connoiseur".

I will try to make some serious submissions as well... :roll:

Actually, if you make it out of cardstock (or other heavy paper) and place the markings right, they work very well as "lucky" dice (i.e. they're loaded) :shock:

Here's a submission for all those Adventure Quest players out there.
My first attempt to create an Origami Frogzard from 15cm x 15cm Japanese foil:

Image

The model is rather simple, just box-pleating with a 16x16 grid. The head needs a bit more shaping and probably more paper assigned to give it more 3-dimensionality. What I like most about my model is how the eyes turned out :-)

There are also all kinds of different Zards and it should be possible to create those variations from my basic Zard CP.
So long and keep folding ^_^

I've designed a fire-breathing Dragon :-)

Folded from 15cm x 15cm of Japanese foil
Image

After a few failed attempts this model turned out exactly like I wanted it to be.

CP is available at the Origami Austria homepage.
