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

A a one fold sting ray
>>
>>559515
Lmao
>>
>>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.
>>
>>559518
>then we don't really want any diagrams
>we
You don't speak for "us".
Maybe you are not interested in simple models, but other people are.
>>
>>559607
Not many, not for that kind of shit (stuff that doesn't resemble anything at all).
>>
>>559513
>
>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.

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).

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!
