Even the simplest of my problems are too hardcore and unrelatable for most people. Even sharing a small detail of my past will freak people out. For me, it's best just to bottle them up and wait till I'm dead.
You'd be surprised how your feelings resonate with most of us. It's easy to believe your life is the worst because you only validate your experience.
Truth is, everyone's life pretty much sucks. Some people are just better at ignoring it or bottling it up.

Jesus Christ, Whah-Whah-Whah, we don't give a shit about your problems. This is not the damn place to be whining about your personal problems. The rest of you need to quit popping your titties in his mouth.

So one of my friends told me about this and told me it's fun. He told me it's about arts and crafts but I have no idea how to do that with this, the material just kinda is too hard and if you try to make it softer to fold it gets ruined way to fast. Some friends told me if I'm bad at it I could try it with glue but it has problems sticking. Help pls

Are you the origami police now, deciding what can or cannot be used in origami? You'd be surprised how much glue is used in some models to help hold them together.
I don’t want a semantics flame war, but origami is by definition without cutting or gluing.
It used to be before the creations got so evolved that they need a little help keeping their shapes and just being able to stand in general. This isn't the era of just the crane anymore.
if it looks nice no one cares.
At least i dont care if the model is stable without glue but Will be better with It (And is just your election to use It) but not much old models use glue ir cut And the actual models there are not much other models wich use it

Oh wait.

This fucking thread is from five months ago.

That means this board is circling the drain, reaching out to me, Anonymous, to save it.

I spit in your face, board that doesn't even advertise what all rad shit it has. I thought all this shit was weebs taping their eyes to their temples and playing pretend. 4chan, you disappoint me perpetually. Goodnight newfags.
You're a fucking faggot dude ahahahaha.

How do origami artists create their own work? Do they use any programs?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
You massive faggot purists sicken me. Eat a dick
There are several books about the designing of origami and the math behind it, such as Origami Design Secrets by Robert J. Lang. You can find many of those books in the book-tread.
Now go suck a dick.
Wo Wo stop with the swearing kiddo,
Honestly, it's pretty impossible to shape any complex model without glue and stuff.

The alternatives to just using glue are pretty bullshit, and totally don't meet purist-y definitions.

Sizing the paper really aggressively with MC and wetfolding is the same as just shaping with MC, which is pretty much the same as just using any other kind of glue.

I guess foil works, but it's really delicate that way and degrades pretty bad over time. Also, if wires aren't cool, why would foil be okay? Neither one is exactly paper...
Typically I have a vague concept, not of a finished product, but some aspect of it. Mostly I just doodle.

Like any artform, origami takes practice as well as an awareness, whether conscious or not, of fundamentals and techniques.

If you're just getting started, observation and skill building is key. Next time you fold, pay close attention (and if you think you already are, pay closer attention). If it's a diagram, look at how each step transforms the paper, notice the techniques used and what the result is. If it's a video, pause and try to predict what the next step would be and how to achieve it. If they don't point point out where everything is placed on the sheet, try and figure it out before it becomes obvious. For crease patterns, look for repeating sections and remember what that folds into, as well as how to related to the rest of the model.

Also, it's good to critique (not necessarily negative) other artists' work. How would you improve their model, what would you have done differently? If you are folding someone else's design and think of some method or aesthetic you'd like more, try it.

I found a bunch of origami flags here: http://www.giladorigami.com/origami-Flags
However, I can only find instructions for Brazil. Could /po/ help me find/reverse engineer instructions for these?
Brazilian flag for reference

Rediscovered how comfy and awesome DoK was designed, any decent papercraft vehicles from that game?
you could try following this thread.

Not DoK, but here is some fleets from Homeworld.

The creator of the papercraft that i will make recommended to me to use a4 paper but the only paper available was only long sized.

>How can i print like a4 on a long sized paper?
>Pic for reference
>Needs to be 1:1 but needs A4

Srs answer pls i need for school project
I'm pretty sure there is no "long sized". Do you mean legal? I assume what you're asking here is if you can make A-series paper ratio (1:√2) using legal. However, you also mention that it "needs to be 1:1" which is just a square. You're gonna need to state what you need a little more clearly.
Op here
My problem is im using 8.5x13 paper instead of 8.5x11.5. Can i just fix it on the printing options on word?
I'm pretty sure you can just scale the image itself to fit the page. There'd be some excess tho.
Thanks anon will do and hopefully my m8's will like the props that i will make
It's actually 8.5x11 that's recommended.
A4 is just a suitable sub.

Actually, if you have 8.5x13, just have the printer recognize it as 8.5x11 (or cut it down to that size) and go with that.

Made this yesterday. Any thoughts on it?
I made this once, a modular star right? It's not too bad, creases look sharp and its well constructed. But I'd look into getting some better paper. Cheap, overall better for folding, and you don't need to lick a crease to cut it.
Lovely! What's the model called? I'd love the instructions :)
Apparently modular star? Sorry, it was so long ago when I first heard of it... I just memorised the instructions and forgot the name lel ;p
I got the name wrong, it's "Omega Star". Here's a Jo Nakashima tutorial, 6 modules.
Thanks guys!

I messed up, help
I dunno, that is a pretty flawless origami rock. Just reinforce the creases a bit.
Step 34 is a closed sink through the top two layers only.

Any good pdf files for a origami noobie?
I'd like something in mediocre difficulty.
(if you know the YouTube channel called Yo Nakashima, something simmilar in difficulty like his videos from his "intermediate" playlist)
Try Jeremy Shafer on YouTube. He has a range of projects which vary in difficulty. He also has two books which I can give a link for Google drive if you want them...

Can you put up the link?

While watching a movie or something I always make paper cranes. I have a whole bag and it's only the start. I was wondering what I could do with them and maybe if someone could recommend some simple origami that you could also make from a plain sheet of paper?
are you making them out of old homework?
once you make 1000 string them together top to bottom , then you will get a wish granted.

At least that is how the legend goes

Hey /po/, I'm a poorfag and I just want to know if it's possible to create Kamiya Satoshi's origami Phoenix using only an 8 x 8 bondpaper.

i've never seen it listed as such IRL, but okay
both 6 inches and 6cm would be ok to practise with as a beginner, but not for this model.
I apologize for being rude master

I tried this model with bond paper and found out it was a pretty bad idea. The feet were impossible to shape and it got a hole on the chest from all the tension
I've seen a rendition from 6 inch paper. But it's extremely hard, only the most skilled folders can fold complex models from small papers. You better find a 50 cm or larger square

I just want to complain and share my failure with the board. Anybody else have to give up on a project 1/2 way?

I just had to give up on this model

I have done many modular origami projects including ones very similar to that one since 2010 (I've done Meenakshi Mukerji designs, origami collapsing "magic balls," five intersecting tetrahedras, etc.) and I've been doing regular origami since 4th grade. It's something I'm proud of but not today.

I was making this is a Christmas gift for my parents. At least they won't care if I only made it halfway since they're my parents.
Listing my failures would be too long.
i give up when i invest a lot of time into a project and then take long ass breaks but ive been getting better at managing my time
thanks for the replies, y'all

I did this the first time I attempted a model like the one I just screwed up (pic below)

I got to the halfway point and I was confounded on how to even proceed. I put the model down for a month (or much longer, I can't remember it was 8 years ago). When I finally came back to it, it just clicked, I knew what to do and finished it.

This time, I think I failed because my units were crafted with too much precision which leads to less cohesion between units since they have little "wiggle room," and also partly due to pushing the units into the center too much instead of letting them breathe. The whole thing kept coming apart as I worked and I just kept going with the hope that adding more units would make the model stronger as a whole.
I usually give up halfway through because I lose interest. But I, too, have been improving at time management.
I find it better to work on projects that I can complete in one sitting and work my way up towards the long build paper crafts

I have the same problem when designing paper crafts, too. I have a Stocking paper craft I need to get back on... And then Panty, of course. 2018 seems like it shoud be a good year.

Hello /po/, my name is Michael and my daughter is coming home from an operation in 2 days time (Woot!!)

She's only 5 and I want to do like an ice bucket thing, but with wee little oragami thingies instead or ice (obviously)

Can anyone point me in the direction of something easy to mass produce that looks cute that I can smash out a bucket(ish) load in a few days?

Mid quality a4 printer paper is in unlimited mode
