Geometric Bird

This is a design by Roman Diaz. You may find the diagrams in his book "Origami Essence."

Look at that cute bird :) It has the body of a box yet can stand on its own two feet :3

It's kinda easy, but of course I had to take in considerations in puffing up the model, and make it, err.....geometrical. :) What do I mean by geometrical? The bird is basically a polyhedron thingy draped with a bird's costume, I think.

Plus, another hard thing is that I had to position it's cute pointy feet in a way that the bird is balanced and can stand up properly. The bird must be having problems with it's cuboid-like least give it some balance. :D

Note to self: Write the post about Diaz's Owls......

This is one of the hardest models I have ever folded: Robert Lang's Tarantula.

I did this model in honor of a friend (who has a really terrible phobia with tarantulas....yes, it can be insulting XD). And for me, this model is TERRIBLY hard (well, because it's ROBERT LANG, one of the greatest origami masters EVER).

This is my second attempt to make this origami model (the first one was a huge failure.....I was too stupid then to know that I can cut a 1:3 paper without folding a square first...And

As you can see it didn't turn out very much like Lang's version (once again, because it's by LANG) but we could say that it's a tarantula about to jump :) (I stated the same thing to my friend and then he shouted at me XD....yes he's a he).

The diagrams can be found in "The Complete Book of Origami" authored by LANG himself.

Remember the useless difficulty level I usually give? Let's apply it here :D from a scale of 1-10, 10 being the hardest, I would give a 10, 583, 759, 234. :) (joke)

Anyways, it was a fun model to create :)

Oh yeah, you can also find a tutorial of another of Lang's tarantulas (a different model, not featured in this post)  which apparently looks more complicated.
