I said if I came up with anything new I'd share it with you all.

I'm still focusing on drawing, but at the moment I am waiting on books, and these are related to what I want to draw in the future anyway.

I've been focusing on minimalism, and have been trying to come up with a couple.

I decided not to post on the old thread. I don't really like having to slog through petty arguments and people being rude to one another just to find the one or two people who are actually saying anything civil and productive.

I don't know if I'll share diagrams for any of the models I make next Any fun I had sharing has been spoiled by greedy spoild people. I always ask for people to post their finished products, but so far have only ever seen one. Doesn't feel like I'm getting anything back especially for a community that seems so eagar to have every diagram possible.

Anyway, this will probably serve as an update thread for people who don't follow my Flickr.

Here's a minimalist gray fox

>>559513
You did much better work in your last thread. If this is what you're working on now, then we don't really want any diagrams. At least your last stingray actually looked like a stingray.

You don't speak for "us".
Maybe you are not interested in simple models, but other people are.

Not many, not for that kind of shit (stuff that doesn't resemble anything at all).

>Here's a minimalist gray fox

If you say so. :(
>>
>>559607
See I wanted to say that, but it comes off rudely from the creator.

There are many different types of origami, and although many people on this board don't think so, they are all equally important and beautiful.

>>559611
>>559612
I'm sorry you don't think my designs resemble what I wanted them to, but I vetted them against my family, who do not fold origami, and they recognized them immediately.

That was kind of the point, really, as I wanted to learn to draw better to make a comic centered around origami that anyone can pick up and appreciate.
>>
>>559616
A comic?
Looks interesting (and unusual) to me, can you give more details?
(OT: I like that fox)
>>
>>559514
That's cool.
>>
>>559621
there's no accounting for taste.
>>
>>559616
I was one of the people in your other thread that was kind of looking forward to seeing some diagrams for the leafy sea dragon until you quit on it. You'll probably quit on this too eventually.
>>
>>559618
Like I said I'm still learning to draw. Check my Flickr to see how shit I am at it.

Basically a slice of life school comedy. These designs were for separate characters
>>
Great work!
Few (obviously) fail to appreciate the beauty and art to minimal. It works with drawing, writing so Why not origami.
Keep at it!

Simple baby turtle. Not as light as the other two
>>
>>559663
Now I have to agree with you, that is a cute baby turtle. That one I would like to see diagrammed.
Nice work this time.
>>
>>559513
Minimalism can be good as long as it's not an excuse for laziness or mental masturbation.

Fox is okay, but a little flat to me. I would choose a darker grey for the paper, as it is the color change is not very noticeable.

Turttle is cute, i like the paper.

I think the ray is good but you're not the first one to have the very same idea. I can't remember where it was but i've already seen a bunch of minimalistic (1/2/3 folds) ray in a book.
>>
That fox is actually pretty good, OP, I like it
Has a brutalist feel to it
I'd like to see a diagram if you dont mind

Would you mind sharing more of your works as well?

sting ray? more like stink ray
>>
>>559763
Why the hell does everyone keep saying that? The fox sucks, and there is no way that I would proudly display anything that looked like that. I'd have to tear it to shreds. On the other hand, the baby turtle looks great, and that is the one I would like to see some diagrams of. Sorry man, just my opinion.
>>
I cant believe Im in an origami board and motherfuckers cant appreciate minimalism. Why arent you complaining about every single crane diagram in existance? Go make taxidermy instead.

>>559611
>doesnt resemble anything at all
There's something wrong with you.

>>559765
>why the hell does everyone manage to see beauty where i cannot?
Translated your lines for you
You're stuck in the mindset of the figurative. Every image is made out of shapes, and each of those has an effect on the total picture. Once you realize and feel that shapes in themselves have communicative value to them, you will also realize that sometimes one doesnt need much complication to send messages.
I swear to god, everyone who complains about more abstract and minimalist works has never really tried to not hate it. I was once one of the retards who keep talking about classical art revival, until I went to arts class, and realized I was just one big dumb pleb.
>>
>>559513
>>559513
Hey, I'm really digging this!

I've been thinking about abstract origami creatures vs. clearly defined shapes lately.

I really like the abstract fox.

I folded a horse figure a few months ago that didn't really look like a horse but had this abstract feel about it.

I've been thinking a lot about the origami I see on youtube and how the figures are so crisp and delineated.

Everything is so symmetrical as well.

I've just recently wanted to get into more abstract figures and some asymmetrical shapes.

keep it up!
>>
>>559513
It would be cool to have some Videos or a diagram
>>
>>559768
OK, mother fucker, you have your jacked-off opinions and I have mine. I think it looks like crap and you don't. Good for you, but don't go trying to make everyone that doesn't like it see it your way because you had an art class or two. And as far as resembling anything, it really doesn't look like a fox at all, so there must be something wrong with you if that's what you see. I can dig minimalism, but even minimalism has to look like something (like the turtle).
>>
>>559769
>>559770
blah, blah, blah, again with the piece of shit fox. you people are fucking idiots.
>>
>>559513
This thing could be a number of different animals, but you chose to call it a fox, good for you.
>>
>>559768
Not to sound like an art snob, but I just started reading "Drawing on the right side of the brain," and there was a chapter about the development of childhood art, At some point children consider hyper realism to be paramount, and anything less to be worthless. That's why I think people make fun of art that seems like there wasn't much skill or thought behind it.

>>559769
I have a few diagrams on my Google Drive that might interest you, setting sail particularly. And if you want minimal designs, check out Vivienne Berty(spelling?) on Flickr, shes quite good

>>559720
I mentioned in a previous comment that im brainstorming for a comic series i want to draw eventually. And I dont think these designs are particularly lazy. I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the curves just right, and the particular pose for the best view
>>
I thought of a model that would fit well into my story (if I ever git gud at pen to paper art) because of your comments. Thanks for your support, even if it's not for everything I make!

No new models atm, but here are some drawings of my models I did. Slowly improving in still life going though "drawing on the right side of the brain."

Going through "perspective made easy" after that, then need to find a book on construction
>>
>>561611
Outstanding art work dude.
>>
>>561616
I still have a long way to go until I can make my comic! Shading, perspective, human anatomy have improved a tiny bit, but I haven't really dived into those subjects yet, just scraped the surface.

My life drawing have improved exponentially thanks to this book though, which will really help when using references, like origami models for instance.

Made a tiny shark while exercising. 2.125in piece of tissue foil, 1.25 completed
>>
>>561639
looks nice, is it one of your creations ?
>>
>>561655
Yes, I posted the revised model in my previous post, and posted photodiagrams a few years ago
>>
>>561657
Do you still have a copy of the photodiagrams?
>>
>>561663
I do not, this was when I originally made it several years back
>>
Reading the comments against your minimalism, OP, are disparaging. I too specialize in minimalist origami and would love to discuss it more and see more of your work. As someone who feels that origami - naturally lending itself to a series of simple shapes, color fields, and acting as a representative art rather than a realistic art - is more than suitable to minimalism.
>>
>>561671
it's a shame, maybe i would have folded this one !
>>
>>561679
I don't really specialize in any origami, and I was attempting to make minimalist design for my characters for a particular chapter in the story I'm coming up with. I don't let to comments get to me (they actually almost write dialogue for me)

I'd love to chat about origami, but you may find me dreadfully boring!
>>
>>561680
As enticing as the 'potentiality' of other folding my designs is, I am spending most of my time exercising my drawing
>>
>>561689
well i said "maybe" because it's hard to see the model on the photo. Maybe i wouldn't like the model if the photo was good, or maybe i'd like it more.

Anyway i find that you've progressed a lot since the time of the shitty dragon and i'm always happy to see your creations. If you ever retrieve the photo diagram or a clearer photo of your shark let me know. Also, is the shark body 3d or flat ?

Sorry if I came off rudely, I'm used to having everyone on here ask for diagrams and offering nothing in return. My last thread was the first time anyone posted their fold of my model, and I have posted about 20 designs in the past few years. Feels like hollow efforts.

It's nice to have a fan out there. I don't think I've improved all that much, I just upgraded my paper, which makes a lot of my models look better than they are.

I have a clearer photo of the shark. It's a 3d model made from a bird fruit base hybrid I guess. I got a lot of flack in the past about using sinks, but most of them are necessary, if not just fun in my opinion.
>>
>>561715
It's pretty bad-ass. Share the diagrams.
>>
>>561715
That's because you've always provided them in the past. Now all of a sudden, you've stopped making them for your new designs (like the baby turtle, the leafy sea dragon [which you just quit on], and now the shark).

you shouldn't be too much concerned about coming off rude on 4chan.

I folded your shrimp a long time ago and also the quaver (not very neatly though).

I guess the different layers under the dorsal fin are supposed to mimic the shark gills ? If yes they're not at the right place but it's a nice touch.
>>
>>561720
They're supposed to be just in front of the pectoral fins, so I think they're close enough to the right place, since it's hard to fold paper to the exact specs. Very good job on the shark.
>>
>>561719
I explained that I am focusing on drawing. My few free hours are spent practicing and writing up storylines. My newest designs are for the story.
>>
>>561715
>bird fruit base hybrid
I know about the bird base, but what is it you call fruit base?
>>
>>561775
Fruit base is a frog base without and petal folds, just squash the sides of the preliminary base and youre done
>>
>>559513
wtf is this shit?
abstract is one thing
drawing a circle and calling it a square is another
cut your bullshit
>>
>>561720
>>561724
Yeah they're meant to be gills. I know they're in the wrong place but I didn't want to leave paper unused
>>
>>561720
Also im really diggin that paper! Definitely a good choice for that model
>>
>>561828
Hey OP, I'm not the guy that asked about those being gills on your shark. I'm the one who defended the shark with the diagram of the shark showing where the gills are supposed to be. I already knew they were supposed to represent gills, and thought you did a bang-up job on the whole thing. Like I said it looks bad-ass. Great job man.
>>
>>561808
Thanks!
I know that base, but it was the first time I heard this name.

I'd say thank you, but I feel that has more to do with only having limited light sources. Wasn't particularly intentional.

Also here's another new model of a flea. Not the most photogenic model. Tried for ages to get a good shot, but the depth and shaping got lost on camera.
>>
>>565241
I like it. It look like one of Robert Lang’s older models.
>>
>>565257
Haha thanks. I'll probably be old and gray before I can make models that look like Lang's current designs.

Hey, OP, you wanted to make a comic, right? Why not, instead of drawing it, you make it out of collage? If you get an okay lighting setup, it could be very good
