A quick post on the latest origami sculpture. An Origami Doberman. A request from a customer in Missouri. Having never considered one before, I turned to the internet to find a pattern. I quickly found one that intrigued me from designer Ares Alanya. Uunfortunately I could not find the pattern or Crease pattern on the internet. So…I was forced to fold up one of my own creation.
So….First attempt. ( actually second…I used small Kami paper for the first attempt) I used this brown cardstock that is rather rough, tough, and difficult to mold into your structure. This was mostly just to see how far I could make “bad” paper go.
Not too bad….I was happy with the body positions and the ears. The head needed a little work, Dobermans have a rather pointed nose with a sleek head. I played with the nose a bit but ultimately went back to a square-ish nose.
Success! I was rather happy with this one as well.. and I guess the customer was as well as he purchased it immediately after I listed it. So enjoy the different angles. The photos don’t really do it justice. I tried several different positions but seeing it in the flesh is really the best way to view it.
