FearlessFlourish Origami

Post by FearlessFlourish »

Hey everyone!

Long time user of the origami forum but since i forgot the password to my previous account and couldn't remember which email to use to reset it (tried lots!) now i think its best to start from scratch!

My name is Grant, also known as FearlessFlourish. Been folding for exactly 10 years, this november is my 10 year anniversary of folding and so happy that I'm still doing it to this day :D.

I don't think there is anything more special than creating something so unique from a single square of paper.

Il be sharing lots of model pictures aswelll as paper aswell!

Happy folding fellow folders.

Turtle by Jang Yong Ik

First thing first, took me forever to figure out how to embed/attach a image, been trying for the past hour to get it to pop up every time i hit preview haha

I guess il start of with my most recent post, I had made this model over 2 years ago. At the time i had been looking for a turtle design but out of all the ones i saw, this captured my attention the most simply due to its unique "cartoonish" look yet simplicity from the folds by others.

This is one of those unique designs that are very lifelike with minimal steps, a very enjoyable sequence and paired a multicoloured sheet of any colour, will net you a really cool looking model in the end!

I re-created a 44 million year old fossil by embedding an origami mosquito from 1 uncut square of paper into a gentle amber resin!

That's pretty nice! It makes me wonder if origami + resin has been used much to make jewelry and such.

You upload the pictures to imgur ( i do ), log in to your account or the last option wont appear therefore you cant embed here, hover over either a single image or album with your mouse, click the top right pencil icon that appears, then hover over the 3 dots icon [ ... ] and click "get share links"then click "copy link" next to the "BBCode [Forums]" then just paste it here when making a post.

The in progress base and the completed base for theplantpyscologists hex pleat rattle snake!

Using my custom coloured Venom paper.

Il be shaping this model slightly different and doing something that i have always wanted to do with previous models, not finish it.

Image

But why would i do that!?

Image

To me the most impressive part is collapsing, this intensely beautiful concoction of complexity and simplicity with how all the creases work and come together in the end to give the finished model its look but when finishing a model, all of this gets completely hidden!

Image

So shaping it in a way that shows the model yet all of its inner beauty will be the goal and i cannot wait to see how this turns out ! :D
